Gunblogger and friends counterprotest the Raleigh MAIG vigil

After the Durham MAIG press conference yesterday, there was a “candlelight” vigil in Raleigh.

Rallies were held around the country and here in North Carolina Thursday for a National Day to Demand Action following the Newtown tragedy.

A candlelight vigil was held in Raleigh. More than 100 candles were used to represent how many days it has been since the school massacre where so many young children died.

Here’s some video

 The weepy woman profiled, Kim Erickson Yaman is not, strictly speaking, a gun violence survivor. Here she is in her own words.

I want to point out that although we had no way of knowing at the time, my children and I weren’t necessarily in danger. My children had a Turkish folk dance practice that day in the offices of a faculty member one floor up from the conference room where most of the shootings took place. The children were fine, I was fine, we weren’t in the conference room when Lu Gang came to “solve a problem” he had with losing a dissertation award to a fellow doctoral student.

She laid on the floor and hid in another building and now, 20 years later she’s attacking my rights to own a firearm. In any other case, we’d be doing whatever we could to help a poor woman get over her PTSD. Instead the media and the Left (but I repeat myself) is celebrating it and encouraging her to wallow in it.

The three protesters were me, Josette from GRNC, and Bob Murdock, a retired police officer who I first met at the Durham press conference.

“I think what they’re asking for is ridiculous,” said Garner resident Sean Sorrentino.

It is ridiculous. They want to criminalize me handing a gun to a friend when they know full well that this law will not affect criminals in any way.
