Gun Appreciation Day

Coalition to hold national ‘Gun Appreciation Day’ amid calls for more gun laws

by  |  published on January 11, 2013

Firearms groups are banding together across the country with a so-called “Gun Appreciation Day” this month as part of a bid to check the increasingly vocal anti-gun movement.

Organizers of the appreciation day, set for Jan. 19, hope to achieve the same level of outpouring as one in August for Chick-fil-A, which had faced criticism after the fast-food chain publicly acknowledged its opposition to same-sex marriage.

The organizers are encouraging gun-rights supporters to “send a message” to President Obama two days before his second inauguration by “lining up around the block” at gun shops, ranges and shows with a copy of the Constitution, U.S. flags and a “Hands off my Guns” signs.

The effort comes as Vice President Biden on Wednesday began a series of White House discussions on gun control, part of his larger task force effort to gather ideas for legislation, then submit them to the president. He said Wednesday that the administration might use “executive orders” to achieve some of its goals.

The White House effort follows the fatal shootings last month at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut in which 20 first-graders and six educators were killed.

Gun groups, though, have claimed new firearms regulations will not solve the problem. Larry Ward — who is leading the appreciation-day effort and is president of the Republican consulting firm Political Media Inc. — says Americas must act before the president makes a final decision.
