The organizer of Gun Appreciation Day, which drew thousands of weapons owners to rallies supporting the Second Amendment, is throwing his weight behind this weekend’s Day of Resistance protests.

“Despite the clear message that the American people sent on Gun Appreciation Day, President Obama is still having a hard time understanding what ‘shall not be infringed’ means,’’ said Larry Ward, president of Political Media.

“We’ll use the same successful organizational and marketing tactics that brought Gun Appreciation Day to the forefront of public discussion to bolster the Day of Resistance.’’

Organizers say the Day of Resistance, scheduled for Saturday, will bring together more than 50,000 conservatives, libertarians, and tea party members at rallies across the country in support of gun rights.

Ward said “hundreds of thousands” attended Gun Appreciation Day events on Jan. 19 and predicts a similar response this weekend, reports the New American.

Ward accused the president and his supporters in Congress of having “exploited the tragedy at Sandy Hook to a shameful degree.

“Supporters of the Second Amendment aren’t just ‘clinging to guns and religion,’ as President Obama would say. We come from all parts of the country, and all walks of life, and we deeply value our rights and our liberty.’’
