Well, every group has its nutjobs, and the Second Amendment crowd is no exception.

Here's the Article

So they're going to be marching with loaded weapons. This doesn't make any sense. They state that if they encounter resistance from law enforcement, they're going to turn around and return. Well then why have loaded weapons? This is a safety risk that has no functional purpose.

I bet somebody's going to get themselves killed. We're going to see an accidental discharge of one form or another. Then everyone's going to say, "Hey, look at those retards."

Oh well.

See the problem with this is BOTH sides (the police and the NRA...) are going to be on-edge and its only going to take one proper nuttjob or anarchist to ignite that tinderbox and well thats it...
It use to happen in the UK with the firms... Usually Millwall would be after a riot and someone would find a perfect reason to cause it to kick off

We respect Adam’s service, but he's a very troubled young man. We just hope he can get his life together," Jesse Benton, Ron Paul’s campaign manager, told Reason.com.

They should give Malik Zulu Shabazz a call, they do armed marches too.

Darwin is patiently waiting.

The problem is likely to be a liberal mole who does something stupid. Imagine another "million" man march, armed, and nothing happens. The gun boogeyman myth is pretty much shattered, so it has a purpose. Also, IT IS LEGAL. If you aren't able to exercise your rights, then what purpose is there to have it? And legally possessing a firearm does not grant legal authority to use it against police.

This is how the American Revolution started. Two armed groups, neither believing the other would call their bluff.

All it will take for this to turn into a bloodbath is one cop or protester who has an accidental discharge. Or even more likely, some 19-year-old with firecrackers.

If the protesters are smart, they will organize and systematically verify nobody has a round chambered. If the cops are smart, they'll just stay the hell out of the way and let them get it over with (or better yet, keep people from interfering).

It's stupid even with that. You don't go marching around with a loaded weapon unless you're on a combat patrol. I doubt these schlubs have anywhere near the same level of training.

I don't see the problem, as long as they're doing it where it's legal. Washington, D.C. has very strict firearms laws, though, particularly with respect to handguns.

Still, if I were a law enforcement official dealing with this, I'd avoid a confrontation. Just film it from dozens of points, identify all the individuals, and deal with them individually. A major gun battle over gun rights, with numerous 2nd Amendment activists being gunned down... that's the kind of shit that starts revolutions. :lol:

Meanwhile, here in Redneckistan no NBPP members get shot by the police snipers when they jack a live round into their AK. Let's see if the same courtesy is extended in DC.

Swartz, you've seen this guy's history? Not a leader of men.

I don't know anything about his history, but based on current events, I'm led to believe he's a fucking retard.

They are planning on marching with rifles slung over their backs. That's a good idea. Theoretically they are going to turn around and walk away, or submit to arrest if necessary. Hopefully they make sure everybody is sober, too. :lol:

Anybody notice that at the bottom of the HuffPo page there's already an ad that says "Senators Who Voted NO On Background Checks"? I told you this is what it's been all about. The Democrat politicians didn't actually wanted to get anything passed or make any change; they just wanted to be able keep their own asses in in their seats. No left-leaning individual is actually going to question whether that blurb is misleading or not. They'll just respond with "Yeah! ZOMG! Voted against! Asshole!" And, if you try to explain the situation, you end up looking like Kerry when he said, "actually I did vote for the $87 billion before I voted against it".

Hopefully the right to associate with groups, oh, I don't know, such as religious organizations, are criticized next. Ought to be fun seeing who comes out of the woodwork to complain about that one. I can't imagine any SANE person NEEDING to associate with such groups, so they just ought to stop, lest they interfere with safe associations.

So I went a read a little bit about Corporal Shitbag's conduct. Fuck him. Protesting in uniform is a no-go.

EDIT: Further reading indicates a sense of entitlement with conduct.

No permit.

In violation of DC laws.


I don't think they'll even get 500 people to participate.

Interesting that exercising civil rights is derogatorily referred to as an entitlement. Sounds like an approach likely to be taken by Obama.

That's one side of the coin. The other side of the coin is that it's unlawful conduct.

What we have, then, is different interpretations on where the line to validate disobedience lies.

Except for not having or forgetting to obtain a permit, I don't see any disobedience.

Unless the topic is the status of his discharge, protesting in uniform is about as relevant as Obama complaining about Bush. And since military leadership tends toward ignorance (rule following to a fault), he may have done it on purpose.
