The Second Amendment March is the finalized name of the Million Gun Owner March. The Second Amendment March is scheduled in Spring 2010 in Washington, D.C. as are satellite marches to state capitols and smaller cities all across America.
"The mission of the Second Amendment March is to galvanize the courage and resolve of American gun owners; to petition our elected officials against establishing anti-gun legislation; and to remind America that the Second Amendment is necessary to maintain our right to self defense. It is the one right that protects all others."
"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." -- Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759
"Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them." -- Thomas Paine, Thoughts On Defensive War, 1775
The Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gun Owners (http://mcrgo.org), the largest state-based firearms advocacy group in America, is organizing the Second Amendment March (originally named the Million Gun Owner March) to demonstrate broad national support for the preservation of the Second Amendment.
"In the wake of last spring's D.C. vs. Heller U.S. Supreme Court decision which protects an individual's right to possess a firearm for private use and the renewed importance placed on the issue of gun rights across the country, the time is ideal for this historic gathering of gun owners at our national and state capitols," stated State Senator Alan Cropsey (R-DeWitt), a member of the MCRGO Board of Directors. "Our lawmakers need to understand that America's gun owners come from all races, genders, political viewpoints and economic backgrounds," added Chuck Perricone, MCRGO's Executive Director.
The Second Amendment March is the brainchild of Michigan based author and Second Amendment advocate, Skip Coryell (http://whitefeatherpress.com). Many gun owners have expressed fears in recent months that legislation to restrict access to firearms for personal defense may soon be introduced in Congress and state legislatures. Mr. Coryell said, "This is the beginning of a period of historic change in our nation's history and it is no time for the timid. This is a time for brave men and women to stand up and be counted. We want our children to inherit the same freedom our forefathers knew. Freedom has to be protected or it will fail. We are at a crossroads. The time to act is now."
Second Amendment activist Ted Nugent reinforced MCRGO's efforts by adding his enthusiastic support for the Second Amendment March: "All pro-Second Amendment groups must be on board and perfectly coordinated. I would be proud to rally, promote, lead and speak to whatever degree the people so honor me with."
Today, 09 Feb 2009, Skip Coryell said, "Many of you have expressed concern that the name 'Million Gun Owner March' implies that people will be marching on Washington, D.C. fully armed and ready to launch an armed takeover. ...People were not reading it as 'Million Gun Owner March' but as 'Million Gun March.' Also, we are getting a lot of e-mail from people who do not own guns but still want to support us. They believe in the Second Amendment but just choose, for a myriad of reasons, not to own them. We respect that and want them to feel welcome here. We need as much support as we can get if we are going to make this march work.
"Because of this, we have decided to change our name to 'Second Amendment March.' We are still early in this process, so if we're going to change, then now is the time. Once again, thanks for your input and your support, and welcome to the 'Second Amendment March.' "

"Will the Federal Government really allow us to do this? Yes, provided we follow all rules, procedures and laws of the venue's jurisdiction. We are gathering a team of promoters and lawyers to help us do this legally. You can attend without fear of retribution from the government. This is still 'America' not 'Amerika.' "
