A coalition of gun rights groups has proclaimed Jan. 19 “Gun Appreciation Day” in response to what it says is the Obama administration’s intent to “gut” 2nd Amendment rights.

“Gun Appreciation Day is expected to rival ‘Chick-fil-A Day’ as a public statement of protest against government policies,” said the organization’s news release .

It urges members to go to gun stores, gun counters, gun shows, and gun ranges “to protest the Obama administration’s post Sandy Hook assault on gun rights.”
