Father's Day Event Planned -- "50 MILLION ROUND MARCH"

DATE (Emmett, Idaho ) -- May 19, 10 AM -- A nation-wide "50 Million Round March" is being planned for Father's Day, June 18, 2000 in support of 2nd amendment rights and to counter the "Million Mom March" which was held on Mother's Day.

This event will demonstrate to elected officials the resolve and the numbers of those individuals committed to retaining their second amendment rights, and send a message to cease enacting laws which infringe on this right for law abiding citizens.

Fathers and their families, friends and neighbors will get together at shooting ranges all over the nation and simultaneously fire over 50 million shots, or "rounds", as a statement in support of the right to keep and bear arms for all law abiding citizens. "Range monitors" will be in place at each event to insure that proper firearm safety is observed.

This effort will also include a letter-writing campaign to congressional representatives, senators, governors and the President informing them of the participants' attendance and their insistence that infringements on this constitutional right cease. As a memento of the event, the participants will include either one of their used targets with their letters, or two spent cartridges in a mailer box with their letters.

One of the organizers of this event, Jeff Head from Emmett, Idaho, related the following reasons he got involved with such a grassroots event:

"The efforts to infringe upon our 2nd amendment rights to self defense have been escalating in the recent months. A veritable chorus from political pundits and the main stream media are trying to convince us that it would be "best for the children" to further restrict firearm use and sales by honest, law-abiding citizens.

However, history is littered with the ashes of societies and peoples who have accepted this unsubstantiated and historically inaccurate claim. Historically it is clear that it would be "best for the children" for the people to remain armed. Responsible firearm ownership and use are one of the great hallmarks for American liberty and our unprecedented peace and prosperity as a people.

This event will safely discharge over 50,000,000 "rounds" from firearms in the space of two hours without harm or injury to those taking part at any official shooting range around the country. This in itself will send a powerful message regarding firearm safety and responsible use by law abiding citizens.

So, on this Father's Day, and on every ensuing Father's Day, let us stand as father's for family and liberty. Let us stand with our wives, brothers, sisters, children, relatives and friends. Let us send 50 million rounds down range collectively at firing ranges all over this nation to demonstrate our resolve and the true meaning of our 2nd amendment rights."

The effort, which officially started on Tuesday, May 16th, had already garnered the support of a number of conservative web sites, gun shops, firing ranges, and conservative media outlets.
