Nevada Carry has learned that a hush-hush anti-gun rally is planned for Thursday, 2/20, 8:00 AM to 1:30 PM, in downtown Las Vegas at the Lloyd George federal courthouse. Former Vice President is expected to make an appearance, but at an unknown time. Biden is in Nevada campaigning for the Democratic Caucus on Saturday.
The organizers kept the rally secret from the larger public because they don't want pro-gun activists to attend. They called it "the potential for confrontation," but every pro-gun counter protest in Las Vegas has been peaceful. The truth is that the anti-gunners are annoyed to no end when openly carrying pro-gun people steal their spotlight.
We cannot let them get in front of the cameras and pretend they have more support than they do. If you have some time on Thursday, get downtown!
When: Thursday, 2/20, 8:00 AM to 1:30 PM
Where: Lloyd George federal courthouse, 333 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89101
Parking: The federal juror duty page has good directions to the Fremont Street garage (you will have to pay), which seems to be the closest reasonable parking.
Be advised the Secret Service will be on scene if Vice President Biden arrives. Security will be tight, especially if armed counter-protesters arrive. Keep in mind President Trump will be arriving in Las Vegas that evening as well.
The anti-gunners will very likely be on the actual grounds outside the courthouse. It is illegal to possess a firearm in a federal court facility. 18 U.S. Code § 930. Don't be an ass and get arrested for contempt of cop; that happened during the Bundy trial.
