    I've come up with the idea to protest with empty holsters at the capitol on the first day of this session, Jan. 13th. Please, no long guns. Too much chance of a mishap with all the handling of such weapons. We can have tee shirts or signs or anything such as this. We can start on the front steps around 7:00-7:30 AM. We do not want to harass or impede traffic in or out of the capitol.

    Find out which legislators support and don't support this. We can let everyone know who wants everyone to be defenseless victims. Feed back, please.

    I'd definitely be down for this. That early in the morning would probably work for me too since I don't work until quite a bit later in the day.

    I would not seek a permit even if men with guns made the assertion that I needed to.

    If fact, I will NOT show up if the person(s) in charge of this even seek any kind of permit. Seeking a permit to exercise constitutional rights to protest to reclaim constitutional rights is so bizarre it's beyond comprehension.....

    Last time I went to Austin was for the right to carry conceled, so this could be an excuse to get up that way again.
