The Washington Post reports that gun supporters behind the event are modeling the program after the tactics of marriage equality opponents, such as Mike Huckabee’s national Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day in response to the backlash the fast-food chain experienced from same-sex marriage advocates. Nearly a dozen organizations, including the Second Amendment Foundation and Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, are encouraging supporters to shop at gun stores and visit shooting ranges in protest over potential crackdowns.

Suit Up, And Show Up For Gun Appreciation Day

Those of us who appreciate our God granted (not "strong man" or government granted) freedoms protected through the Constitution of the United States and the Bill Of Rights, now have another day on which we can express our gratefulness. 

Gun Appreciation Day - January 19, 2013 

Gun Appreciation Day is happening for the very first time this year, and it’s a direct response to recent national conversations about gun control following a year of high-profile mass murders. 

It happens at a time when many feel that this is not a government for and by the people but a government that has de-evolved into a "ruling class" versus those who are bought off by the ruling class in the face of a Constitution and Bill of Rights that are there to protect against these type of manipulations. It happens at a time where this government has not operated the country on a budget (an unconstitutional act without legal consequence) for 3 years and 8 months. It happens at a time where the president of the last four years has spent more taxpayer money and accumulated more national indebtedness than the total of nearly all of the previous 43 presidents that have led this country over the last 235 years. 

Or as TIME Magazine writes: [It happens at a time] two days before President Obama’s second inauguration, nine days after a teenager opened fire at a California high school, the same week as the one-month anniversary of the Newtown, Conn. school shooting and the same month as the second anniversary of the Gabrielle Giffords shooting in Tuscon, Ariz.
