Jeff Quinn ( http://www.gunblast.com ) attended the 2nd Amendment Day rally in Clarksville, TN on March 29th, 2013. The featured speaker was State Senator Mark Green (R, District 22). We had a nice turnout, and more rallies are planned for the future. We encourage all freedom-loving Americans to attend similar rallies near them, and STAND UP to those who want to strip away our precious, God-given rights.

Mack to Obama, “you have no authority to tell me what kind of gun I can own, how big of a clip I can own, or even that I have to go through your stupid background checks. I’ll own whatever kind of gun I want, and it’s NONE OF YOUR DAMN BUSINESS! LEAVE US THE HELL ALONE!”
Sheriff Mack was at a “Guns Across America” rally at the capital steps in Austin, TX. There were around 2,500 in attendance at the rally.
Mack has been exhorting lawmen, especially the county sheriff, that they are the last line of defense when it comes to protecting their citizens’ rights.
He made the point that sheriff’s are obligated to enforce the law, and the supreme law of the land is the Constitution.
Tens of thousands Malaysians have come out to protest in the country’s capital against the government calling for reforms and possible ouster of the ruling coalition. The rally comes before Malaysia’s general elections, which are due by mid-2013.
According to local police, 80,000 people marched through Kuala Lumpur to the legendary Stadium Merdeka, where the current governing alliance declared independence from Britain in 1957, reported The Malaysian Insider.
Opposition estimates that the turnout was even higher, at about 100,000, according to Malaysia Kini.
Protesters’ demands included better electoral and environmental laws, improved education system, abolition of student loans and fair royalty payments to oil-producing states.
The opposition argues that the country’s electoral register is fraudulent and has pro-government bias.
During the rally people wore various bright colors including yellow and green, each representing an activist group.
The rally resembled a festival with food sellers and other vendors coming out to the streets. People carried flags and signs and some even wore Guy Fawkes masks, as popularized by the 2005 film V for Vendetta.
Opposition leader Lim Guan Eng spoke at the protest urging for change from the country’s Prime Minister Najib Razak’s and his Barisan Nasional coalition, which has held power for the past 55 years.
The ruling coalition has been in control of Malaysia since independence from Britain.
“Our government is so corrupt. The government should listen to us. They need to reform. For more than 50 years they have ruled Malaysia,” rally participant Azlan Abu Bakar told News24.

As this Congressman did 4 years ago in response to being basically shut-out of the Republican National Convention, Ron Paul has again organized his own large event nearby. He is currently not invited to attend the convention and is only going to be given a video tribute at the RNC similar to what a great man might receive after he is dead.
Although there has been speculation for weeks that Ron Paul was never invited to speak at the convention, it has been recently revealed that he was offered a speaking spot but it came with 2 strings attached. He would have to submit his speech for approval and vetting by the Romney team. He would also have to fully endorse Mitt Romney for President. Dr. Paul declined the offer due to these compromising conditions. In an interview reported by the New York Times, he is quoted as saying that “It wouldn’t be my speech” and “That would undo everything I have done in the last 30 years. I don’t fully endorse him for President.”
It should also be noted that Ron Paul never suspended his campaign, the legal battles over his delegates continues onto Tampa and the delegates have not formally voted to make any candidate their nominee yet.
Over the last 4 years, his popularity and influence has continued to explode across the worldwide stage. The Paul campaign had previously stated that news organizations from all over the world have been contacting them with their desire to cover this event which takes place on Sunday afternoon, Aug. 26, 2012. It is now being reported that C-Span has chosen to air a significant portion of the event. Although other American news networks will be in attendance, it is unlikely that any others will actually be airing it.
Ron Paul will speak to a live national audience via coverage from C-SPAN on Sunday, Aug 26th at 3pm ET from the University of South Florida’s 17,000 seat Sun Dome. The event is themed as a constitutional conservative and libertarian friendly alternative to the official GOP convention. Ron Paul, himself, is calling it “the speech the RNC doesn’t want the rest of America to hear.”
The event is titled, “We are the Future,” and will feature numerous speakers including Doug Wead, Congressman Justin Amash, Barry Goldwater, Jr., Jack Hunter, SC State Senator Tom Davis and Senator Rand Paul with musical performances by Jimmie Vaughan, Aimee Allen, Jordan Page, and John Popper of Blues Traveler (with Ron Noyes).
The Romney campaign and GOP establishment have yet to invite Ron Paul to speak at the official GOP convention. However, they have found it politically convenient to adopt much of his message. Just last week, Romney pledged to support an audit of the Federal Reserve and the GOP is expected to adopt the audit as a plank in its platform along with a version of Campaign for Liberty’s Internet Freedom initiative. The party platform is also widely expected to call for a commission to investigate the gold standard.
Another grassroots and Paul-themed event is happening throughout the weekend, P.A.U.L. Festival. Speakers include Tom Woods, Lew Rockwell, Gary Johnson and Walter Block among other.

Tens of thousands of pro-democracy demonstrators have marched through the streets of Hong Kong as the former British colony marked 15 years since the return to Chinese rule.
The rally for human rights takes place annually, but has been bolstered this year by anger towards Beijing.
Earlier, China’s visiting President Hu Jintao swore in businessman CY Leung as the territory’s new leader.
During the ceremony, a lone heckler tried to interrupt Mr Hu’s speech.
On the streets outside, massive crowds beat drums and waved flags as they marched though the city to call for full democracy and express their frustration with the mainland.
(Reuters) – Police detained dozens of opposition protesters on Sunday at an Occupy-style rally against President Vladimir Putin in central Moscow.
Activists gathered near Red Square in front of the Kremlin and walked toward the popular Arbat pedestrian district, but were detained upon reaching the sit-in protest which began earlier this month.
Witnesses said riot police treated protesters who resisted roughly. “One man in his 50s was grabbed and carried away by his arms and legs. It was terrible,” said Natalia Pozdnyakova, 73, dressed in white, the color which has become the symbol of the protests.
Police told Russian news agency Interfax 35 people had been detained.
Earlier in the day, dozens of people were detained when Russian Orthodox Church activists clashed with gay rights protesters in central Moscow.
Though Russia’s protest movement began in response to accusations of voting fraud in a parliamentary election last year, Moscow protests have broadened the movement’s demands, reflecting anger over a range of issues from human rights to high-level corruption.
Putin’s return to the presidency on May 7 and a demonstration marred by violence before his inauguration added to resentment and sparked sit-in protests in the capital.
Putin’s top human rights adviser said on Sunday he would look into the reasons why people who were wearing white ribbons as a show of solidarity with the protest movement were being detained.
“By itself, wearing a white ribbon, just like a ribbon of any other color or white clothes or wearing clothes of any other color, is not a violation of administrative law,” Mikhail Fedotov told the Itar-Tass news agency.
“We have to understand on what grounds police are detaining people.”
