ANNAPOLIS GUN RIGHTS RALLY 2/5/20!

As one of my girlfriends explained to me: “you can't be FIRST, but you can be NEXT.”

Although RICHMOND’s Gun Rights Rally was FIRST, ANNAPOLIS can be NEXT to hold a State Capitol GUN RIGHTS RALLY that gets publicity and attention for our Maryland 2A rights.

If you missed Richmond, this rally is YOUR opportunity to experience this excitement of joining the cause of liberty in person, if you haven’t before: no prior experience is needed.

If you’ve done it before, you’ve experienced how much it matters: you can be justly proud how much your efforts contributed to capturing national attention for Maryland gun rights last session.

The pressure we “outside” orgs helped to apply on the MGA in our own way, working with all the “inside” MD gun rights orgs to successfully defeat bad gun bills, matters.

Recently Patriots asked: but what about this session?

We promised we hadn’t forgotten, so here it is!

ALL are invited to join Patriots from MARYLAND SHOOTERS, PATRIOT PICKET and everywhere to participate in the HIGHEST VISIBILITY gun rights demonstration in Maryland thus far this year.

*************** UPDATED EVENT INFORMATION **************************


Take the “Rowe Boulevard” exit from Route 50, look for the Navy Stadium on the right, take the next right turn onto Taylor Avenue at the traffic signal, look for the entrances to the Navy Stadium parking on the right.

Parking entrance fee is $5.00.

The TROLLEY requires EXACT CHANGE of TWO DOLLARS.


BEFORE THE BIG SPEECH:

PARK at the NAVY-MARINE CORPS MEMORIAL STADIUM and take the Trolley to the Capitol complex.

(Recommended Trolley Stop: the Bus Shelter on COLLEGE AVENUE, just EAST of LAWYERS MALL; NW corner of Building “16” on map below.)

- beginning at 9 AM you can REGISTER/SIGN-IN to give HEARING TESTIMONY in both the House and Senate!

- at 10 AM - 10:15 AM we will begin PATRIOT PICKET SIGN, BANNER AND FLAG-WAVING OUTDOORS on the PUBLIC SIDEWALK of ”STATE CIRCLE STREET” (which is the brick-paved street that encircles the Statehouse; see Buildings “18” and “19” on the map below), but arrive whenever you wish.

- Our OUTDOOR DEMONSTRATION will take place on the NORTH SIDE of the STATEHOUSE, ACROSS THE STREET (on the “outer” sidewalk ringing the Capitol) from the North Statehouse steps.

- At 10:30 AM it is recommended that those who wish to be INDOORS in the main lobby of the Statehouse to GREET and LOBBY the MGA legislators and all the Maryland Government Officials (wearing your WWNC shirts if possible) BEFORE the GOVERNOR’S SPEECH go through the STATEHOUSE SECURITY ENTRANCE at this time.

- To enter the Statehouse use the “State Circle” street-level entrance to the right of the NORTH STEPS, as you face them; the SECURITY ENTRANCE is behind the North Steps.

- At 11:30 AM - 12 NOON the OUTDOOR PATRIOT PICKET demonstration ends

At his time PP OUTDOOR Demonstration members can choose to:

- Go to LUNCH!

- or ENTER the Statehouse through the nearby SECURITY ENTRANCE to watch the BIG SPEECH on the main lobby TV monitors

- be interviewed (outdoors or indoors) by the news media: “What does your [WWNC] shirt mean?”

- watch the BIG SPEECH INDOORS and after it ends GREET and LOBBY YOUR GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS as they STREAM OUT of the Joint Session into the main lobby.

- while INDOORS in the main lobby you can background photo-bomb and video-bomb the TV interviews in the main lobby to display your “WE WILL NOT COMPLY MESSAGE” on your shirt.


AFTER THE BIG SPEECH:

- go to LUNCH!

- beginning at 2 PM [/B] you can TESTIFY in the HOUSE and SENATE GUN BILL HEARINGS BEGINS!

- or just ATTEND a GUN BILL HEARING wearing your WWNC shirt!

- visit with your legislators privately in their offices

*****************

Some notes about accessing the Statehouse (18), House Office (14), Senate Office (13, 13A) and the Legislative Services Building (16).

- ALL FOUR of these buildings have their own separate and identical SECURITY SCREENING ENTRANCE

- enter any one building and you are screened for all four, as long as you don’t leave any building through a doorway that exits to the outdoors and the street (you must use the tunnel system to travel between all four buildings with only one security screening; see tunnel instructions below to access the other three buildings from the building you entered)

- State-issued photo ID/DL required to enter, no knives

- it is airport-level screening: x-ray machine, metal-detector wand, trays for cell phones, keys and change

- you will receive a “VISITOR” sticker/label that you must display on your clothing

***********************

USING THE CAPITOL COMPLEX TUNNEL SYSTEM:

- ALL FOUR BUILDINGS described above are connected by tunnels

- you can enter through the security entrance at any one of these buildings

- as long as you do NOT leave any building through an exit leading to the outdoors, you can continue to access all four buildings with only ONE security screening but you must use the tunnel system to get there.

- this is an advantage in that if you enter a legislative office building to sign up for testimony, you can go through the underground tunnel to the Statehouse without another security check.

- if you wish to enter the Statehouse but it is near to the time of the BIG SPEECH (NOON) when many guests/spectators are waiting to be security screened at the Statehouse entrance, it is recommended that you use the security entrance at the nearby Legislative Services Building, or walk the Senate or House Office Buildings (in that order), enter through security, walk back through the tunnel.

- the elevators in the tunnel which carry passengers to the main floor of the Statehouse are small and slow, it is recommended that you take the stairs up from the tunnel as there can be a wait to board he elevator.

- Ask security personnel or staff for directions to the tunnel; look for printed signs in the tunnels giving directions to separate marked passageways to access each building

- display your “VISITOR” badge to use the tunnel

****************************

The basic EVENT and SECURITY/BUILDING ACCESS INFORMATION and the CAPITOL COMPLEX MAP have been added to the OP (post #1 in this thread) to find easily for quicker reference.

It is recommended that everyone coming to Annapolis for these events open this thread and refresh it frequently to check for updates or changes.

Everyone is encouraged to post any information you think will be helpful.

The OUTDOOR PATRIOT PICKET DEMONSTRATION will be located on the public sidewalk across the street from the NORTH STEPS of the STATEHOUSE.

Remember, we must not block the public sidewalk.

This PATRIOT PICKET SIGN, BANNER and FLAG-WAVING DEMONSTRATION will take place RAIN or SHINE.

We will brings some of our traditional PP hand-lettered cardboard signs to hold if it isn’t raining.

If it is raining we will have plenty of our printed and hand-lettered waterproof signs to hold.

Current weather forecast is for mid-40’s temps, possibility of drizzle or rain.

***********************

Everything we are doing on Wednesday, February 5th happens on this map:

Wednesday, February 5th, 2020 at the Statehouse represents the convergence of THREE things: it’s a big gun bill hearing day, it’s the big Governor’s annual speech day, and it’s the precise anniversary day of some Patriot Picket guys getting arrested exactly two years ago.

Beyond that, this rally will also be an HISTORIC FIRST for our Second Amendment rights in Maryland:

This will be the FIRST TIME we have ever DEMONSTRATED for our GUN RIGHTS the SAME DAY the GOVERNOR of MARYLAND delivers his annual “STATE of the STATE” (SOTS) speech to a Joint Session of the General Assembly at NOON, on Feb. 5th in the Statehouse.

The SOTS speech is kind of like the “State of the Union” speech, but for Maryland, so of course, it’s nuttier: “We must stop crime in Baltimore!” Yay! LOL

OUR PLAN:

FIRST (Wednesday, 2/5 at mid-morning) we will link up all arriving PATRIOT elements to demonstrate OUTDOORS together BEFORE Hogan’s (45 - 60 minute) SOTS speech begins at NOON: by sign-picketing, flag-flying and banner-waving around and near the Statehouse.

(Many of you will already be in Annapolis because you’ve arrived early to sign up for your Wednesday afternoon hearing testimony from 9 AM to 12 Noon.)

The sign-message subjects that will be available to choose from for this 2/5 demonstration are GUARANTEED to please. (More on this later.)

Incidentally, thank you NORTON for leading the way on the MDS website and MDS FB to support VIRGINIA LIBERTY, and to travel yourself to Richmond to participate in the VA rally on 2/20! (See “Support VCDL Lobby Day” and other “Virginia” threads.)

To honor the Richmond event and our Virginia compatriots, our 2/5 pro-Second Amendment demonstration in Annapolis INCLUDES waving VIRGINIA flags and banners as well as our new “THUS ALWAYS TO TYRANTS” signs. Works here too.

These symbols and the Virginia Commonwealth motto serve as REMINDERS that the Richmond rally’s UNIVERSAL MESSAGE OF LIBERTY to crazy DemocRat leftists everywhere CAME BACK ACROSS THE RIVER TO MARYLAND WITH US.

THIS IS OUR OPPORTUNITY:

Our outdoor demonstration will take place as ALL MD legislators, Hogan’s Cabinet, Attorney General Frosh, Comptroller Franchot, County Executives, former Governors, dignitaries, lobbyists and their many political special guests arrive for Hogan’s noontime speech.

This includes all of the major Baltimore and DC television, print and social news media.

Then we will move INDOORS to the main Statehouse lobby wearing our “WE WILL NOT COMPLY SHIRTS” to be in position when the SOTS speech ends, when all the Joint Session legislators stream out of the chamber, and their visitors and special guests seated in the Visitor Galleries also stream downstairs into the main lobby.

You are “at liberty” to ask any question you want of every legislator, every Hogan Cabinet official, the Attorney General and every other elite government official you see there.

Don’t forget to charge up your cell phones for some priceless video, if you know what I mean. (I’ll share some examples from 2018 later in this thread.)

Note: There’s no “testimony” time limits, no witness tables in the main lobby to beg from for your God-given rights: you are where your belong, on your feet, with eye-to-eye political equality, the ultimate citizen opportunity for public redress of grievances.

It’s never been done before, don’t miss it. This will be epic!

Five dolla parking at the Navy Marine Corps stadium, cheaper than AGC's new guest policy.

You can start with the Governor, or if you are more comfortable confronting a corrupt Attorney General or the crooked Democrat legislators, start there.

Check out these looks will ya?
