    American Patriots Gather in Greensboro, NC to Demand That Their Government Abide by the Constitution

    “Laws are made for men of ordinary understanding and should, therefore, be construed by the ordinary rules of common sense. Their meaning is not to be sought for in metaphysical subtleties which may make anything mean everything or nothing at pleasure.”

    – Thomas Jefferson, 1823, Letter to William Johnson

    This August 14th, freedom-loving Americans from all walks of life will gather in Greensboro North Carolina to peacefully demand that their government abide by the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Restore The Constitution rally [Guilford Courthouse National Military Park - Maps (U.S. National Park Service) ] will assemble at Guilford Courthouse Battleground Park to hold a peaceful demonstration with a single, simple message:


    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 is protected 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 your Constitutional 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. The Bill of Rights, as ratified by Virginia in late 1791, placed additional essential limitations on the powers of the government created by the Constitution. Together, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights set forth very specific limited powers for the Federal government, while also providing crucial protections for both individuals and the states from attempts by the Federal government to step outside those limits.

    Over the years, as the nation grew and prospered, American citizens became lax in their vigilance against the slow and continuous encroachment of government into their private lives and affairs. Over the past 100 years, all three branches of the Federal government have stepped far beyond the clearly-articulated and mandatory boundaries set by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

    With the actions taken in recent years by power-hungry Republican and Democratic politicians (examples include the bank bailouts in TARP, the automobile manufacturers’ bailout, and the recent healthcare mandate) and activist Federal judges (example: the Kelo decision), more and more Americans have had enough. They have awakened, and they notice with increasing dismay as leading politicians in both the White House and Congress disregard and even openly mock the supreme law of the land. Today’s patriots also recognize that when the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are interpreted consistently to justify the expansion of government and to mean whatever those in power say it means, we are headed towards a return to life as subjects under the thumb of tyrants.

    The American citizens who gather this August 14th at the Restore The Constitution rally will openly and safely carry their firearms as they peacefully assemble to proclaim their grievances and demand redress from their servant politicians and officials. In short, every one of the participants in the Restore The Constitution event will each be exercising God-given human rights explicitly acknowledged by the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. As the Restore The Constitution organizers put it:

    “Can you imagine what the Founders would have said if they knew, after all of the blood and the pain of the recent revolution, that to enter the Federal governmental district created by the Constitution, American citizens would have to completely disarm themselves while petitioning their servants in government? The Founders would not have tolerated such arrogance by public officials, and they would have asked today’s Americans some pretty tough questions as to why we accept such behavior.”

    Undoubtedly, there will be those in the media and government who will mischaracterize these loyal Americans as racist “haters,” bigots, right-wing extremists, domestic terrorists, and similar epithets. Those slanderous accusations are completely false, and the men and women who will gather on August 14th are nothing of the sort. The participants in the Restore The Constitution event are patriotic, everyday Americans who simply insist that their government respect the rights guaranteed by and obey the limitations imposed by the supreme law of the land – the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

    Rules of (non) Engagement

    Pistol loaded, openly carried. Rifle unloaded, slung to rear. Bandoleer of magazines containing ammo. All in accordance with rules below. Please note that guidelines below are subject to final coordination with the Department of the Interior:

    Participants and attendees are expected to know and abide by all applicable state and federal firearms laws. None of the information provided below is legal advice, and no attorney-client relationship is created by reading or relying upon this information. If you have questions, then you are expected to know the applicable state and federal firearms laws before attending the event. Anyone prohibited from possessing a firearm by state or federal law may not possess a firearm at this event. Participants and attendees may not bring any firearm prohibited by state or federal law.

    1. ALL rifles and shotguns carried by participants at this event are to be unloaded (chamber empty, no magazine inserted, no ammo inside the rifle or shotgun, no ammo touching the rifle or shotgun whatsoever) and slung to the rear or to the side, away from the hands. Although the law does allow for carry of some types of loaded rifles and some types of shotguns in some circumstances, our guidelines are simpler and more strict due to the relative novelty of this event and the high level of attention it is likely to receive from law enforcement, government, and the media. 2. While we do ask that your rifles and shotguns be unloaded, you are perfectly welcome to carry ammunition and loaded magazines on your person if you so choose, so long as no magazines are actually inserted into rifles and so long as you are not prohibited from owning a firearm. 3. Open carry of a loaded pistol is allowed.

    Concealed carry of a pistol is allowed for those with a valid North Carolina concealed handgun permit or a concealed handgun permit from a state for which North Carolina allows concealed carry in North Carolina (See the North Carolina Department of Justice website for a list of those states at; we do not vouch for the authenticity or accuracy of that list). Anyone carrying their pistol openly or concealed cannot have in it a magazine capable of holding over 20 rounds and cannot have a pistol designed to accept a silencer or suppressor Participants and attendees are required to keep all pistols holstered. Participants and attendees are required to keep all rifles/shotguns slung over their shoulder, muzzle-down, unloaded, with the safety on, and with no magazine inserted. Brandishing of firearms is prohibited by North Carolina law. It is unlawful for any person to (a) point, hold, or brandish any firearm in such a manner as to reasonably induce fear in the mind of another or (b) hold a firearm in a public place in such a manner as to reasonably induce fear in the mind of another being shot or injured. Do not engage in any horseplay, demonstration of firing positions, or exchange of or other handling of firearms at Guilford Courthouse Battleground Park, or any other location or vehicle of transportation associated with this event. By federal law, firearms are prohibited in federal facilities (defined by federal law as a building or part thereof owned or leased by the federal government, where federal employees are regularly present for the purpose of performing their official duties). Do not transport a loaded rifle or shotgun in any vehicle on any public street, road, or highway during this event. Participants and attendees are not to consume, possess, or be under the influence of alcohol or illegal substances at this event.

    Again, these guidelines are, as of now, subject to final coordination with the Department of the Interior.
