In a response to the 23 executive orders issued by Barack Obama on January 16, 2013, a grassroots effort is underway to show resistance against the Obama administration’s attack on the Second Amendment and your right to keep and bear arms. The website Day of Resistance has been founded in order to bring people together on February 23, 2013 to stand in defiance of this administration and all lawmakers who seek to undermine the Constitution’s Second Amendment.
Hawkins laid out five consequences of Barack Obama’s re-election:
1) Barack Obama feels empowered
2) The Republicans In Congress have lost their nerve
3) The conservative grassroots is demoralized
4) The Democrats want to take our guns away
5) The Democrats are overreaching
As a response to this, Hawkins writes:
This is why we're organizing Day of Resistance rallies all across the country. Barack Obama, the Democrats, and even the Republicans in Congress need to be reminded that the Tea Party is still here and those of us in the grassroots are not sitting down, shutting up, or giving in. That goes double for Americans who care about their Second Amendment rights. The Democrats believe they can demonize gun owners and try to take your guns away without having to worry about any consequences at the ballot box. We need to show them that they're wrong.
We're off to a good start. This effort, which was begun by Dustin Stockton of Western Representation PAC and The Tea Party.net is less than two weeks old, but we're already getting close to the 100 rally mark and dozens of new protests are being added every day. Tiffiny Ruegner of Women Warrior's PAC has even done a press conference promoting the event in front of Diane Feinstein’s office.

I found it very clever that the use of .223 was also applied to the Day of Resistance. This is the caliber of ammunition used in AR-15s which have been demonized by the Left as being responsible for mass shootings. It has not been. Rather it is evil people with evil intentions who are responsible, not the weapons.
