Thinking outside the box here: but maybe we should ask HPD to maintain a presence as well? Not only would it allow them to participate and associate with our organizations, but with all the shady stuff happening in the country and the world, I would rather play it safe in the event that 1 in a million scenario takes places, given that we were able to push back against the agenda.
I'm contacting friends in the Reserves and National Guard to see if they would like to become involved as well, as it has a direct association with the history of the National Guard. Of course, if they were to do this, it cannot have any type of political association, or it may get the service members in trouble, so we have to have our talking points straight.
i don't see the need for them to participate officially
if they want to do it as civilians ok
a lot of 2aHI members are military, so we always try and remain politically neutral in public
we are supporting our second amendment rights and safe firearms training/practice
we are carefully choosing spokespeople too
