Ga. group plans gun violence rally at GLOCK Inc.

http://onlineathens.com/breaking-news/2013-02-07/ga-group-plans-gun-violence-rally-glock-inc

SMYRNA, Ga. Demonstrators who say the national debate on gun control shouldn't focus only on assault weapons are gearing up to rally at the corporate headquarters of GLOCK Inc. in Smyrna.

A spokeswoman for Atlanta Rev. Markel Hutchins says the reverend is organizing the Thursday event in the wake of shootings last week at Price Middle School, Morehouse College and other national incidents.

In a release, Hutchins says gun control discussions following the Connecticut school shooting should not focus exclusively on assault weapons when many shootings in urban areas are committed by criminals carrying handguns.

Several religious leaders, activist groups and victims of gun violence are expected to participate in the event.

1. wrong corporate headquarters

they should be in Deutsch-Wagram, Austria. The Georgia plant is just a US subsidiary.

2. Are they really calling it a "gun violence rally"?

Better check the skies for drones. Just saying.

3. Maybe they'll get more than 75 people for this march

The latest march in Chicago headed by Jesse Jackson mustered a total of 75 protestors. The last couple of DC marches didn't give any attendance figures, but all the news photos were tight shots of a handful of people, like they used to do with the Million Mom March events. That always makes me a little suspicious of what the real crowd was.

Still waiting for the flood of grass roots protestors that we've been promised. Or at least more than I see waiting in line to get in to the Kane County Gun Show.

4. Indeed a very evil name... evil accents... black guns.

 

Reliable as heck though. Virtually indestructible. Only going to last as long as the plastic does (so not permanent like some guns). Very safe as long as you keep them in the holster. Easy to aim.

Easily my favorite gun in my cabinet.

5. Yes they are evil. Do you know how you can tell?

 

It is because the 'assault' Glock pistols have....pistol grips!

Personally I prefer Springfield Armory over Glocks. I like the grip angle better on the XDs and XDMs over that of the Glocks.

Kind of reminds me of this preacher who lead a protest at gun show in Dayton.

7. "Aw heck people, can't you get anything right?"

 

"I said Glock factory! GLOCK! G-l-o-c-k."

"Not the glockenspiel factory."

8. I'm really thinking of drinking the G19 cool aid.

Since I traded my M&P 9c, I'm thinking of picking up a G19.

10. Try before you buy.

Given the shape of the Glock grips, you will either love it or hate it.

11. Try and find a Walther PPQ or P99

 

They have the sweetest triggers and the best feel

Oh, wait, it already is...
