The Rainy Day Patriots is one of many Tea Party type groups in Alabama. Their organization has opposed the controversial Common Core Standards and are advocates for smaller more transparent government and firearms freedoms. The Rainy Day Patriots are involved in activities across the state but are most active in Shelby and Jefferson Counties. They also have affiliate groups in Walker and Calhoun Counties and are represented every week of the legislative session by their affiliate group: the Alabama Legislative Watchdogs.
Last month Congressional candidates Scott Beason and Gary Palmer, Secretary of State Candidate Reese McKinney, several state house candidates, and Shelby County Sheriff’s candidate Rick Neeham addressed the group.
Hoover Tactical Firearms is located in the former Food World building on Highway 31. The new Hoover Tactical Firearms facility sells tactical weapons, handguns, and combat knives and accessories. It also has a deli, a target range, firearms safety and proficiency classes, and meeting rooms for birthday parties and other events.
Hoover Tactical Firearms will be the new home of Rainy Day Patriots meetings.
