    Someone posted this to my FB account: Not sure why they want to do this but...

    April 19th, 2014... 12 NOON Eastern Standard Time
    Every gun owner in the USA is asked to fire their weapon at the same time. Spread the word, share everywhere.

    12 noon pst would be more appropriate (12 - 3) across nation, vice, 9am - noon.

    I think I will rip through one magazine rapid fire with my AR-10 and with my AR-15

    Way to early for this Old Alaskan to get out of Bed...... and if I called 911, some idiot in Anchorage, (600 miles away) would answer, and not have a clue where to send "Help".....

    My family is getting excited. The kids are hoping we will hear others shoot. I let one of the neighbors know and they are on it. It will be interesting.

    Great way to get arrested for discharging a firearm within city limits, and that would frighten most of my customers, if I pulled a gun and ripped off a few shots. I'll pass, thanks.:(

    oh, too lazy to drive to the edge of town? Firecrackers would serve the same purpose, with no trip to the range, no worries about stopping a bullet safely.

    That is true, if you live within city limit you will probably get a visit from SWAT.

    I'll be there....it will be the Nerf Gun shot heard all around Australia! My neighbours will probably just think ..."Chelloveck's ginger beer home brew bottles have exploded...yet again!" and roll over back to sleep.:rolleyes:

    If they visit my place, I will ask them 2 questions. One, do you have a warrant to serve? and, two, since you don't have a warrant, can you read? You are trespassing! Get off my property. No crimes being committed here except by you guys! Yes, I heard gunshots, I was firing my rifles on my target range into a safe backstop. That ends the conversation, unless you would like to sit down and have a beer, or if no beer then maybe you would like to shoot for score for a wager? Otherwise, go away.

    Lazy? Nooo. Frugal. I'm not losing two hours of the middle of.my work day for a fine minute demonstration. (And fire works can be bought here, owned here, but not used here. To do so would result in a visit from the po-po, and a stay in the houskow.) NO.

    Man, Ohio sucks. What a bunch of useless nuts (buckeyes). Don't get your dander up. I am fully qualified to make these statements. I was born there many many moons ago. I went 1st thru 12 there. I entered the service from there in 1967. I am glad to be elsewhere!

    LOL, breaking out an old Mosin or maybe the potato gun. You might like my "tater gun"--3" bore six foot section of truck drive line.

    Why not do it on a Saturday at say noon PST.... that way we are not scaring the heck out of the neighbors at 9 AM......
    9 AM shots around here will draw a response..... noon= someone will just think we are getting the weekend going.... there is a difference.

    shots from a gun will get the cops called a LOT faster than fire crackers,and if enough people do it to make them worth joining, cops will be WAY too busy (and scared) to be bothering anyone about firecrackers.

    Horse feathers. They will go for the easy arrest first. Less trouble, and numbers make them look good.
