Our friends at Ammoland Shooting Sports News report that 2A activist Rob Pincus, director of media relations for “Save the Second,” said during an interview with the Right of the People podcast from the Gun Rights Policy Conference in Phoenix, “We’ve got a big election coming up next year. We need to remind the nation, we need to remind ourselves that we are the Second Amendment lobby and that’s why the 2nd Amendment rally is important.”

“What has sunk in over the past few months is that far too many people are willing to write a check… and say okay, I’ve done my part, and then move on,” Pincus lamented.

Just how many will appear would be speculation at this point, but Pincus suggested that organizers are hoping for several thousand rights activists to attend.

“Maybe having 10,000 people, 15,000 people standing on the capitol steps, on the capitol grounds, listening to some of the most active leaders the most active advocates inside the Second Amendment community for a few hours on a Saturday afternoon,” Pincus observed, “I think that will be an opportunity for everybody to remember that we are the gun lobby. We are the ones who exercise these rights. We are the ones who benefit from these rights.”

As Ammoland's Dave Workman noted, in the past, gun rights activists have been a lethargic bunch, but this time around things are different. The Second Amendment has been under attack as never before, in part by anti-gunners exploiting mass shooting incidents to push bans on so-called “semiautomatic assault weapons” and “high-capacity magazines,” along with registration and one-gun-a-month schemes. Also on the gun control agenda are “safe storage” mandates, mandatory training requirements, expansion of so-called “red flag” laws and other restrictions suggesting that proponents are trying to turn Second Amendment-protected rights into government regulated privileges.

What also makes this year different for grassroots activism was the heat-of-the-moment candor by Democrat presidential candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke during the recent debate. His declaration, “Hell, yes’ we’re going to take your AR15, your AK47” finally erased any doubt that anti-gunners intend to disarm law-abiding American citizens.

You are the Gun Lobby!
