Sen. Rand Paul offers support to ‘Day of Resistance’ 2nd Amendment rallies

The video might not have the highest production values, but the message is crystal clear. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has shot a video message for tomorrow’s Day of Resistance, a nationwide rally in support of the 2nd Amendment, inspired by the president’s signing of 23 executive actions on guns.

Who’s attending?

Yes, please take photos and post them to Twitter, then check back with Twitchy tomorrow (Feb. 23, or .223) for more coverage.

    Message to gun-grabbing liberals from a Steyr-packing, conservative Star Trek fan…

    “Resistance ISN’T futile.”

    Here’s a Romulan Ale toast to patriots like Rand Paul.

      “Assimilation is futile; you will be resisted” as I like to put it 😀

  • Secede

    Democrats like their women ugly, lesbian, stupid and hooked on government handouts.

    • LightSabre

      Truer words were never written!

  • Secede

    Dems don’t want women armed against would-be-rapists ….some of their top ranking politicians might get shot !
    (Clinton, menedez, etc…)

      Kennedy & assorted relatives…

    “We have a President, not a king”…….yeah, we know that, now convince Oblamer….

    • Hiraghm

      We don’t even have a President. We talk about obeying the 2nd Amendment, but ignore Article 2, section 1, clause 5 of the Constitution, which requires the President to be “natural born”… which means a citizen of citizen parents. As his father was a British subject, he’s not eligible to hold the office.

    I was glad to see there will be one in Anacortes, Washington. That is a wonderful part of the state and it actually has conservatives there.

  • Garth Haycock

    What gun-grabbing progressives are incapable of understanding is that the 2nd Amendment is what allows us to exercise the other Amendments, especially the 1st.

      …and I’ll never understand that…of course I studied – really studied – European History in the 19th-20th century as it related to US History and DIDN’T let the self-proclaimed, card carrying Communist who taught the courses tell me how to think…I quickly learned what he wanted to hear…and vomited it back to him…I also understood very quickly how to study around his simple-minded follow-the-leader mindset and actually learned a thing or two – anyone who attempts to usurp the rights of the people in The United States of America, whether these rights are granted by The Creator or by the Founding Documents of our Great Nation, may win a battle or two but never the war as there will ALWAYS be those of us who realize the uniqueness and beauty of the dream our Founding Fathers had and will defend to the death those ideals…and we will ALWAYS prevail…

      • LightSabre

        One of the main things that used to pi*s me off in college: not being able to tell your obvious left-wing liberal professor how stupid they and their opinions are for fear of them retaliating on your final grades.

    • louisiana_mom

      Oh, they understand it alright… they want to do away with the entire Constitution and can’t as long as the 2nd is in place…

    For those who have never heard of him, Mr. Volk grew up in Russia and he’s quite familiar with living in places that don’t have the right to bear arms.

      These people need to be up front on all the news shows, relating their experiences. At least Breitbart & Drudge, Townhall & Fox should be interviewing them non-stop.

    Speaking of Resistance:

    Make ‘Five Phone Calls for Freedom’
    GRNC Alert 2-21-13: Fight Pending Attack by Obama Radicals

    We are asking millions of Second Amendment supporters, represented by the Coalition and others, to deliver a loud and clear message to Congress by making 5 phone calls on Monday and Tuesday (Feb. 25 & 26). Please note that we said CALL, not email. We want millions of voices to ring through the congressional switchboard, so please note that you might have to try several times to get through.

    Specifically, we are asking you to call:
    1. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell at 202-224-2541
    2. House Speaker John Boehner at 202-225-0600

    3. Your two Senators
    4. Your representative to the U.S. House. To identify your US House representative, go to: and then enter your zip code in the upper right corner of the page.
    Give congressional staff 3 simple talking points:

    1. Nothing about the federal proposals is acceptable – not banning semi-automatic firearms and magazines, not expanding the list of people prohibited from owning guns, and not registering private gun sales via the National Instant Check System;

    2. Because “compromise” means losing freedom, you will not “compromise” on this issue, including any “lite” version of registering private sales through the National Instant Check System; and

    3. As a member of one of the organizations comprising the National Coalition to Stop the Gun Ban, you will support coordinated Coalition action against any legislator who supports gun control.

    Policeman: Tell me what happened ma’am.

    Attempted Rape Victim: Well officer, he dragged me in this alley, beat me about the head and face, and started ripping at my clothes.

    Policeman: An then ma’am?

    Attempted Rape Victim: Well… first I pee’d myself, but that didn’t do anything. Then I tried a headlock, and he just bit the hell out of my hand.

    Policeman: Ok, ma’am…but how did your attacker get..uh…

    Attempted Rape Victim:…Dead?

    Policeman: Yes

    Attempted Rape Victim: Well sir, while his smelly 240lbs had me pinned down and was smothering my 120lb frame I was trying to think of some cool Judo moves when my hand found my purse. I swear officer, I just reached in the purse for my rape whistle, but what came out was my Sig Sauer .40. I sort of forgot about Judo, and just shot him in the face…is that ok?

    Policeman: Yes ma’am. Yes ma’am it is.

    Attempted Rape Victim: But I want it in the report that once he was dead I did get him in a wicked arm bar…he didn’t tap though.

    Policeman: No ma’am I suspect he didn’t, but I’ll put it in my report. C’mon ma’am, I’ll give you a ride home.

    Attempted Rape Victim: Officer?

    Policeman: Yes?

    Attempted Rape Victim: Can I kick his corpse once before we go?

    Policeman: Sure. Why not. It’s not like I need to hold him still.

    Bless Rand Paul – but where are the other Republicans? He is one of the few who speaks out, yet most of our GOP reps cower and avoid being associated with people like Paul.

    I don’t just mean on the gun issue, but ALL issues. I want to see ALL of our Sens and Reps grabbing a mic EVERY DAY at the Capitol and blasting these Libs.

    Paul, Issa, Cruz, and a few others are the only ones we see out there, and the MSM brands them as then “crazies.” We need HUNDREDS of our representatives speaking out like this EVERY DAY.

  • CatHerder

    I looked for one in Houston, but the nearest is League City which is a bit far. Not surprised, really, it’s the weekend they kick off the Livestock Show after all.

  • twolaneflash

    The 2nd Amendment is just dandy, but it has been useless since it hasn’t been applied properly to the Declaration of Independence. It’s long past time to revolt against the statists in D.C..

    “In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.”

  • Luke Givens

    Well hopefully it goes better than your Gun Appreciation Day and none of you manage to shoot yourselves or each other this time around.

    • Garth Haycock

      As my seven year old would say, “that’s so funny I forgot to laugh.”

  • JYD
