 April 15, 2010
 
For Immediate Release
 
 American Patriots Gather On the Banks of the Potomac to DemandThat Their Government Abide by the Constitution
 
“Laws are made for men of ordinary understanding and should, therefore, be construed by the ordinaryrules of common sense. Their meaning is not to be sought for in metaphysical subtleties which may makeanything mean everything or nothing at pleasure.
 
-- 
Thomas Jefferson
 ,
1823, Letter to William Johnson 
 
 April 19, 2010 marks the 235
th
anniversary of the day when American colonials in Massachusetts stood shoulder-to-shoulder on the green at Lexington and at the Old North Bridge in Concord to stand against British Regulars who hadcome to seize their guns, ammunition, and other supplies.Thus began the War for American Independence.
 
This April 19th, freedom-loving Americans from all walks of life will gather on both banks of the Potomac to peacefullydemand that their government abide by the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
The Restore The Constitution rally[ http://restoretheconstitution.wordpress.com/about/  ] will assemble at Fort Hunt National Park near Mount Vernon and
 
Gravelly Point Park across the Potomac from the Washington Memorial -- some of them legally armed (loaded sidearms,unloaded and slung rifles) -- to hold a peaceful demonstration with a single, simple message:
 
RESTORE THE CONSTITUTION –
NOW! 
 
 According to the Restore The Constitution organizers:
 
 “We want to remind Americans that they have a basic human right to keep and bear arms – both for self-defense and to preserve individual freedom – that is not only enshrined in the Bill of Rights, but isprotected
only
by Americans’ willingness to
actually exercise
that right. Just as is true with free speech,freedom of assembly, and every other right guaranteed by the Constitution – if you don’t insist on yourConstitutional freedoms by exercising them in public, you
will
lose them.” 
In 1788, with the ratification vote by New Hampshire, the Constitution was adopted as the supreme law of the land. TheBill of Rights, as ratified by Virginia in late 1791, placed additional essential limitations on the powers of the governmentcreated by the Constitution. Together, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights set forth very specific limited powers for theFederal government, while also providing crucial protections for both individuals and the states from attempts by theFederal government to step outside those limits.
