Upcoming April Liberty Events In CT

Friday, April 9th
Gadsden Flag to honor the Connecticut Tea Party Patriots!
I am honored to announce that the Gadsden Flag, better known as the yellow "Don't Tread on Me!" flag will be raised above the Connecticut State Capitol Building in honor of the Connecticut Tea Party Patriots on Friday April 9th at 9am. There will be a flag raising ceremony at 9am on April 9th, followed by a short press conference where tea party candidates will announce they are running for office in 2010. The flag will remain raised above the Capitol Building until April 15th. Please join us at the flag raising ceremony on Friday April 9th at 9am on the South Lawn of the State Capitol Building in Hartford, CT

Saturday, April 10th
There will be a Second Amendment March on Saturday, April 10th from 1pm-4pm on the northern grounds of the State Capitol. This is an "empty holster" rally, please leave your guns at home. Miss Connecticut 2006 Heidi Voight has agreed to be a speaker at the Second Amendment March on Hartford, along with Scott Wilson of CCDL, Bob Crook of CT Coalition of Sportsmen, and Attorney Craig Fishbein, lawyer for Blue Trail Range. In the past, Heidi has lent her voice to numerous causes and groups including ending violence against women and children, American Legion Riders, United Way, and the Rotarians. As an avid hunter and holder of a CT Permit to Carry, Heidi wants to lend her star power to help protect the 2nd Amendment. She is a fantastic speaker and we look forward to hearing more from her at the march.
