KANSAS CITY, Mo. — According to a website making the rounds on social media, Jan. 19 is being unofficially declared “Gun Appreciation Day.”

“Go to your local gun store, gun range or gun show with your Constitution, American flags, and your ‘Hands Off My Guns’ sign to send a loud and clear message to Congress and President Obama,” GunAppreciationDay.com said.

The website also asks for contributions saying, “if the American people don’t fight back now, Obama will do to the Second Amendment what he has already done to the First with Obamacare’s assault on religious freedom — gut it without a moment’s thought to our basic constitutional rights.”

There is also an online petition, which will petition Congress, the President and the U.S. Supreme Court.

Nearly 1,000 people say they’ll participate in the appreciation day, according to the group’s Facebook event.
