Today, gun rights advocates across the country participated in events and visited gun shows to commemorate what’s being calling Gun Appreciation Day. We’ve already pointed out the tone deafness of choosing to honor guns on a weekend we celebrate murdered civil rights leader, Martin Luther King Jr.

Proponents of Gun Appreciation Day recommend participants:

“go to your local gun store, gun range, or gun show with a copy of the Constitution, their American Flags and “Hands off my Guns” signs.

Apparently organizers should have advised them to bring body armor, too.

In three separate incidents at three gun shows — including one right here in Ohio — five people were shot on Gun Appreciation Day.




They should really look into getting some security at those gun shows!

    Gun shows are planned very far in advance. These had nothing to do with gun appreciation day.

    I think there’s s loose nut behind these triggers. Maybe we need IQ tests to own a firearm.

    What did LaPierre say? “The only way to stop an idiot with a gun from shooting himself…..”

  • Except that the first one scheduled for Medina OH, wasn’t until February 16? And I went through around over 7 Ohio gun show websites to verify.
