There are two upcoming events on April 19, 2010 in the Washington DC/northern Virginia area that I, Oath Keepers Founder, Stewart Rhodes, will be speaking at. I urge you to be there as well.
1. THE RESTORE THE CONSTITUTION RALLY. This will be an open carry rally at Ft. Hunt National Park, in Virginia (where open carry is legal), right across the Potomac from DC. Go to www.restoretheconstitution.wordpress.com for more information. The organizer is Iraq combat veteran, Daniel Almond. The event starts at 9am and I’m scheduled to speak there from 11am to 11:25am, and then Army veteran and retired police Capt. Chauncey Normandin (RET), Lowell (MA) PD, the Oath Keepers National Vice President East of the Mississippi, will conduct an oath ceremony.
I will then travel into DC (without firearms) to the other event on that same day:
2. THE SECOND AMENDMENT MARCH. This will be an unarmed march on the National Mall in DC itself on April 19, 2010. Go to www.secondamendmentmarch.org for more info. The organizer is Skip Coryell, Second Amendment activist and author. Oath Keepers is now a proud sponsor of that march. I’m scheduled to speak there from 12:45 to 1pm, also conducting an oath ceremony right there in DC. Depending on the turnout, it has the potential to be the largest oath ceremony in history. Among the other speakers will be Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America, Orange County Sheriff candidate Bill Hunt, Sheriff Richard Mack, Suzanna G. Hupp, Pastor Kenn Blanchard, and Michael Bane (some of whom will also speak in Virginia).
Both events will run all day on April 19, 2010, but the organizers are coordinating so some speakers will be able to speak at both.
This April 19, 2010, is the one year anniversary of Oath Keepers, and there will of course be a contingent of Oath Keepers in Lexington, Massachusetts to celebrate there, but I feel compelled to go to the events in DC and Virginia instead. Let me tell you why, and why you should be there too. ...

(From Restore the Constitution)
Restore the Constitution Rally. The Restore the Constitution rally will be held this April 19th, 9AM to 5PM at Ft. Hunt National Park in Northern Virginia. This is an armed rally (loaded, openly carried handguns, unloaded and slung long guns), so if you are able to attend, please consider going openly armed (if legal for you to do so, of course). Let's send a peaceful, but potent reminder to the slugs in D.C. that the American people retain the spirit and the means of resistance to their tyrannical desires.
