New Gun Rights Group Plans 'Day of Resistance' in Kirkland

A Kirkland man has planned a 'Day of Resistance' rally Saturday, Feb. 23 in downtown Kirkland, encouraging participants to openly carry their legal firearms.

There will be guns on the streets of Kirkland on Saturday, as a newly formed gun rights group, 2nd Enforcers, takes to the corner of Central Way and 3rd Street to protest "23 executive actions against your 2nd amendment Constitutional right to bear arms" by Pres. Barack Obama.

The picketing rally was posted on the group's website by Jacob Kukuk, who describes himself on his Google+ account as a concealed carry and open carry advocate in Washington State who supports the personal protection of individuals.

The rally is planned for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, and the organizers have encouraged participants to bring signs and their legal firearms, and to obey Kirkland laws during the peaceful protest. Among the rally calls the group advises the following on its website:

  • Dress appropriately, i.e. dress as you would for a business interview, as sometimes you have to disguise yourself as a Trojan horse to win a battle.
  • Present your message professionally, i.e. clean material.
  • Responsible carry only, Open carry Pistol/Rifle encouraged.
  • Be clean, pickup your trash, and don't stick signs into the ground.

The organization describes itself as a Washington State non-profit militia with a mission to protect the rights of the people at all costs. So far, Kukuk is listed as the only director on its board of directors.

Will you go to the rally on Saturday? Tell us in the comments section.

Should be a scene - lunatics in dress shirts carrying guns. I will be shopping elsewhere on Saturday.
Peter Tountas February 22, 2013 at 03:02 PM
Seems to me the only lunatic is you.
John Thomas February 22, 2013 at 03:08 PM
Kirkland will definitely be a no go area for normal people with a healthy respect for devices specifically made for killing people.
Jack Hugs February 22, 2013 at 03:44 PM
Have fun and take pics of yourselves wearing your guns. Dont forget your 'wraparound' reactolite rapide glasses.
Former Marine February 22, 2013 at 04:24 PM
If you'd rather we keep our guns locked up at home, or shown only at the gun range or when hunting in the forest, stop supporting legislation to steal them. When bullies try to take away the rights of innocent law abiding citizens we will stand up for ourselves. These anti gun laws hurt REAL people, many of whom defended YOUR liberties in far away lands at great personal sacrifice. Lunacy is a matter of perspective - to me, anyone who thinks they can defend their home and family with nothing but a telephone is a little crazy...

Just another sad day in America where citizen's exercising their rights earned with the spilt blood of their ancestors, whether they be freedom of speech or to bare arms, are called lunatics by armchair keyboardists. Thank you for your sacrafice and service Former Marine.
Lynn Mcgrew February 22, 2013 at 06:07 PM
I'm surprised the Marine is happy to see every Tom, Dick and Harry have access to their weapon of choice, the assault rifle, that was created exclusively to destroy the enemy in those far off lands. Not shown off on a Kirkland street corner.
Charles Jackson February 22, 2013 at 06:33 PM
A "non-profit militia"? According to their own web site -- http://2ndenforcers.org/?q=content/workparty-13013 -- they are a non-profit corporation. The word "militia" does not appear anywhere on the document.
Jack Hugs February 22, 2013 at 06:35 PM
Please don't place yourselves in the same catergory as our brave soldiers. You are not soldiers. On Saturday, you will be walking through a shopping center in Kirkland showing your 'toys' off not on the battlefields of Iraq. If you wish to be compared to soldiers, go join the army. Im 100% for guns in the army but 100% against 'wannabes' getting their jollies around guns.
Alison February 22, 2013 at 07:30 PM
It will be the safest street corner in WA. We do not own guns as a "hobby" or call them "toys." Dont be so disrespectful. We own guns because it is our duty as citizens of the United States of America to not only protect ourselves and our hard won freedom and liberties from those who want to take it away from us who live off our soil (North Korea, Iran), but to protect ourselves from government tyranny. Anyone remember Hitler? If you remember nothing else from High school history class, remember this: History repeats itself.
Charles Jackson February 22, 2013 at 08:07 PM
"Protect ourselves from government tyranny" ?? Tell me, in your world of Imaginary Hitlers, just who will you be shooting at? Our American soldiers???
Catherine Wittel February 22, 2013 at 08:11 PM
A very devisive issue. Not everyone who believes in stronger regulation of firearms is promoting government tyranny and not everyone who wants to legally own a gun is a lunatic. I sure hope we find some intelligent solutions to the gun violence in this country, and I think it goes much deeper than simple gun rights vs gun control.
Jack Hugs February 22, 2013 at 08:26 PM
If you guys really want to 'protect the country' go take some classes on computer languages and learn how to stop the constant cyber-attacks from China and N.Korea. Then again, that would take both brains and commitment. Much easier to play soldier with your purchased 'power'. However, Id be fine with you guys walking the streets of Kirkland with your laptops on display.
C. Halsey February 22, 2013 at 08:30 PM
If this rally promotes one person to actually read the second amendment and understand why it was written, then it will have been worth the time and effort.
Janice Hardisty February 22, 2013 at 10:00 PM
Are we taking guns away from our soldiers now? Whew, let's not stretch this out of proportion. And may I remind everyone, the President is NOT trying to take away your guns!!
Janice Hardisty February 23, 2013 at 01:12 AM
I am so sick of the term "freedom and liberties." It is a B.S. term. NO ONE is taking away your guns! Can't you folks get it through your head? Must we listen to this gun-speak over and over again? I definitely agree with J. Hugs. There are countless numbers of people (mostly men) that want to look like big boys and show off their toys. You can say anything you want, but that is what it mostly comes down to. I have male relatives who stick a gun under their truck seat every time they go to the grocery store. So glad they are only related by marriage. They are still wackadoodles however.
JC February 23, 2013 at 05:19 PM
Such venomous sentiments - I'm amused by the fact that regardless of topic, the clear winner of the award for 'the most angry' goes to the least prepared or willing to care for themselves and this once great country. Sacrifice for freedoms eludes them.
Jack Hugs February 23, 2013 at 05:34 PM
I think we are all getting 'angry' because we are tired of burying little children just so that 'gun nuts' can feel powerful as they hide behind a constitution that was never meant to address today's weapons of mass destruction or time of peace. Our forefathers would shed a tear at what we have become with little regard for the safety of innocent children. Shame on you.
Jeanne Gustafson February 24, 2013 at 12:19 AM
True, Charles, the document says non-profit corporation. In the text below the corp. describes itself as a nonprofit militia: "a non-profit militia in Washington State."
A.Patriot February 24, 2013 at 03:07 AM
Seems like Jack Hugs needs some education as he thinks law abiding gun owners are responsible for the massacres, not the evils that exist in society, SPeeaking of our forefathers and what would shed a tear on , how would they feel with all the pansies pissin on their graves and ignoring the sacrifices men and women patriots in our country made so that we ALL can have the freedoms we enjoy. Im sure he thinks that with all the guns around him that it would surely be a shootout, yet Not a shot fired at any of these rallyes. It does seem that the people who lack education and gun knowledge are more"angry" than those of us that believe we should keep our freedoms and rights. Curious huh? Maybe Jack should man up and realize how many gun owners are actually carrying around him all the time, and never use their weapons to break the laws or harm anyone. Strange how idiots can fabricate a way to tie legal law abiding citizens with a respect for the constitution to any lunatic criminal wack job that breaks laws . The criminals are the issue for anyone who hasn't enough sense to see that, so disarm the non criminals with laws so the criminals jobs will be easier. MAkes perfect sense right? Pansies don't have to own guns, law abiding citizen don't have to become criminals because of others ignorance . CRIMINALS AND IDIOTS are the problem. Don't like guns move to Chicago where its safer, genious.
Jack Hugs February 24, 2013 at 03:50 AM
A. Patriot - your diatribe is the exact reason why we should have tighter gun control. Lets count the macho BS you spouted in your short, grammar-challenged, retort: "pansies pissin" "man up" " idiots" "Pansies dont have to own guns" "IDIOTS" "Genious" You seem to think that owning a gun makes you less of a "pansie" and educated in some strange fashion. May I suggest its quite the opposite? You prove the point as to why guns are a problem, dangerous weapons in the hands of unbalanced individuals who base identity and 'worthiness' on owning a weapon. As for "needs some education", may I recommend a basic class on spelling and sentence construction? I know its not as manly as shooting your pistol, but it does help in getting your point across without looking like a total neanderthal.
DebbieKat February 24, 2013 at 05:00 AM
So glad I 'missed' this 'event'. Yeah, I'm sure it's fun milling around in the suburbs with your semi-automatic weapons... around children and pets. And I'm sure you're all super responsible. Just like the several responsible, trained folks at recent gun shows who had their guns accidentally go off.
WithWingsAsEagles March 04, 2013 at 05:58 AM
Sucks I can't reply to reply. So Former Marine please let Janice also Know that They are making Headway at TAKING GUNS AWAY FROM MILITARY PERSONAL... She can find it herself or she can ask one of her representatives for the information on what The Government is doing and all this has been planned for a very long time. Look up Albert Pyke while she is at it and learn about what a False Flag attack is, i.e., Pearl Harbor, 9/11, Waco, TX(ABOUT GUNS), Oklahoma City Bombing(They worked to link this to Waco, TX), Every Major War was planned. Yes and lately they planned on 7 Countries in the Middle East to Take out and well they have already Taken out I think 5. So tell me we don't need FULL 2nd Amendment RIghts AGAINST TYRANNY Janice. Please don't be a Repeater like most Students become from Public Schools who are taught to fully OBEY THEIR GOVERNMENT without question, Please tell me they don't do just that? Or the Sheep of Belief Systems who are mesmerized out of even thinking of owning such a Devilish ITEM called a GUN that is used for KILLING... And what did Jesus say? Sell your cloak and buy a sword? Yet I see so many commentaries saying oh that can't be, he meant something else because after all Jesus is LOVE...
WithWingsAsEagles March 04, 2013 at 06:16 AM
I reckon if the Colonist would have thought like you then I guess we wouldn't have had America, but now we have Amerika since THEY have usurped our Government by Money via Corporate Take over via Central Banks and many connections abroad. I know a sheep when I see one and yes I'm still a bit sheepish myself. The 2nd Amendment is to make sure Tyranny can't happen from the Established Governing Officials, it isn't for Hunting, Target practice, sport shooting, celebrating, it is for Opposing Tyranny of Government. I suppose you agreed that it was ok to send all Innocent Civilians through either be Felt Up or Radiation(yes I understand there are even working to get rid of the NAKED SCANNERS AND MODIFYING THEM to bring back some privacy) but still you must think 9/11 was done by Arabs? The Pentagon was a strategic Hit to take out offices doing investigations on the Millions few TRILLION Dollars the Military has no way of showing where the money went. Oklahoma City bombing had records of the Waco, TX happening and well there you go. Yeah I know it is just a bad word coined "Conspiracy" and it ain't no Theory if you put the pieces together and quit trusting people you don't even know personally but only know about them based upon GOOD YESMEN WORDS to sooth your doubting spirit one gets when laws are made daily to infringe upon your rights as a Human Being so they can milk as much Money out of US as the COPORATE RUNNERS OF GOVERNMENT have did since the FEDERAL RESERVE EXISTED.
