Buy A Gun Day was conceived by me in 2003. There had been earlier attempts, but none responded to the liberal festival of forcible asset seizure into one of our own.
The goal is to get out the word and encourage not-yet-owners to at least become better informed and owners to make an effort to recruit those who may be standing on the fence or to move from the opposition to the ranks of the uncertain.
That the blogosphere enables us to coordinate the seventh Buy A Gun Day in 2009 while I live in the shadow of the Hollywood sign only makes the results of my effort sweeter.
In 2003, 54 blogs promoted the first “BAG Day“. The annual effort grew to over 200 blogs with the promotion by Kim du Toit, Free Republic, Instapundit and Hugh Hewitt. The date was also adopted by both the Liberty Belles and Moorewatch.
The United States Bill of Rights was ratified on December 15, 1791, my wife’s birthday (the month and day, that is, not the year!). I find that auspicious. Let’s work together to break at least 218 sites commemorating Buy A Gun Day this year, to highlight the 218 years of the Second Amendment.
While April 15 is of particular meaning in the United States, given the way the government plans to vastly increase our tax burdens, and those of our children and grandchildren, there is no reason whatsoever to limit your purchase to April 15!
Join us on Facebook’s Buy A Gun Day group, too.
