There will be guns on the streets of Kirkland this Saturday, as a newly formed gun rights group, 2nd Enforcers, takes to the corner of Central Way and 3rd Street, near Peter Kirk Park, 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 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.
