Have You Heard There Will Be a ‘Gun Appreciation Day’?
Conservatives and gun rights advocates are coalescing for a pre-inaugural event that is being dubbed “Gun Appreciation Day” (GAD). Planned for Jan. 19, the pro-Second Amendment initiative will take place just two days before President Barack Obama officially commences his second term.
Much like the actions urged by organizers of “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” and “Hobby Lobby Appreciation Day,” two recent initiatives launched by right-of-center advocates, those behind the firearms effort are urging supporters to head to gun stores, shows and ranges to open their wallets in support of gun rights. The event is a essentially a protest against what is perceived as too-much government intervention in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.
