Self-Defense Rights "Truth Rally" to Be Held in
Downtown Los Angeles on March 16, 2011
CCRKBA (Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms), SAF (Second Amendment Foundation), and the Calguns Foundation are holding a press event and "truth rally" to counter Mayor Bloomberg and MAIG's (i.e., "Mayors Against 'Illegal' Guns") most recent disinformation campaign.
Instead of debating the actual issues, Mayor Bloomberg is apparently trying to subvert the American democratic process by sending a "billboard truck" to major cities across the country to promote the bald-faced propaganda that firearms are a net "social cost," and not the real truth that firearms are a net "social benefit."
Gun owners will thus be unveiling their own "truth truck" billboard to counter Bloomberg's campaign of fake propaganda.
MAIG doesn't want the public to know truth. That truth is this - for every criminal who kills with a firearm in a crime, there are 64 law-abiding citizens who use a gun in self defense. And in light of Mayor Bloomberg's apparent political lies and outright "propaganda campaign," CCRKBA and its local partners have teamed up to ensure that the public is told the truth, once and for all.
The truth is that firearms in the hands of law abiding citizens are a human right, a civil right, a "net benefit to society," and a total and complete life saver to those who are unfortunate enough to have use them. Reams of statistics show that the vast majority of defensive firearm use occurs without the intended victim even having to fire one single shot.
This makes the MAIG disinformation campaign even more repugnant and nonsensical, since it flies in the face of documented reality.
So come show your support for the truth!
Join with CRPA Executive Director John Fields and meet with fellow law-abiding gun owners at the Northwest corner of W. 1st Street and Spring Street in Downtown Los Angeles at 11:30 on Wednesday, March 16, 2011 for the unveiling of the CCRKBA billboard "truth truck." Chairman of the Calguns Foundation and CRPA Board Member Gene Hoffman will give a brief speech and then take questions from the media.
You will be representing all law-abiding gun owners - so dress to impress. Please wear at least a collared shirt and no camo and no unloaded openly carried firearms.
