Nice coverage on both ABC and NBC news. Very neutral and some great shots of the crowd coming down past the bridge, grouped in front of the capitol, and inside. Great going gals, and guys. Thanks for showing up today.

Thanks for noticing, I've dropped about 60 lbs over the past year and a half. (Another 30 or so will make me very happy)

Most of my pics are crappy...phone has a decent camera for what it is, but I think I smudged the lens. Anyway, here's a decent one from near the back of the march.

I saw a number of different IGOLD T-shirts from different years. I'd like to see a picture of the ones sold for each year of IGOLD. Mine says "Shall not be infringed" on the front and "A well regulated malitia being necessary to the security of a free state the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed" on the back.

BTW, how many IGOLDs has it been now?
Disarming the people (is) the best and most effectual way to enslave them. George Mason

Remember the 1991 Luby Cafeteria Massacre of the Unarmed (Kileen, Texas before Texas Concealed Carry) Do we need 23 people to die in a similar incident before we're allowed effective self defense?

Three school masacres have been stopped by civilians with firearms. Two with handguns and the third by a guy with a shotgun. (Pearl, Ms; Appalacian School of Law; Edinboro,Pa)

Howard: I'm flirting with using that photo on the cover of GunNews.

Can you IM me the person who took it for credit?

Thanks.

Well you've got Richard Pearson ISRA, Otis McDonald, State Treasure Dan Rutherford
"A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks"
-Thomas Jefferson-

Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I feel. One is the colors that fly high and proud the red, the white, the blue. The other ones got a rattle snake with a simple statement made, don't tread on me, is what it says and I'll take that to my grave

I was... well... quite happy to see the turnout of the ladies. (from the pictures) It meant a lot to me personally, My grandfather was a gunsmith and my mother is quite knoledgable, I hold both of those people in VERY high regards. Mom was ready to go march with me :frantics:

Mrs. Chad was having some testing done so I wanted to stay close to home, next year I plan to come and bring friends :D
