Freedom of Speech means nothing is you refrain from saying things that the government doesn't want to hear.
The Right to Keep and Bear Arms means nothing is you refrain from carrying arms in any situation where the government doesn't want you to.

I believe the right should be exercised. A lot.

Such an event is fine at capitols in open carry states but trying it in DC is begging for bad press.

So much time and energy being wasted critiquing others efforts.

We hand wring all day while our rights are infringed. Let’s at least hand wring while we exercise our rights.

So long as no laws are broken, what is the problem?

And who the heck is being a hot head?

I reject that notion.

I don’t know about the politician and talk show host — never heard of him out here — but being civil and nice didn’t work with abortion and it isn’t going to preserve 2nd Amendment rights.

I like the idea of the march, but maybe they could use pitchforks instead. Would get the same point across, with loads of symbolism. Obama did threaten that there would be people marching with pitchforks, but he thought it would be in order to harm bankers.

Kokesh is a nut.

That said, I believe in using Teddy Roosevelt's advice about speaking softly and carrying a big stick. There's no need to be demonstrative, but make all actions taken count - like at election time.

Any armed march with loaded weapons will surely be infiltrated with anti-gun agent-provocateurs. Somewhere along the march route it is almost a certainty that a person secretly working for the government will fire a shot in order to provoke violence. President 0bama and Attorney General Holder would just love for this march to take place. Any armed march gives President 0bama and Attorney General Holder too much opportunity to cause too much trouble. This armed march is a bad idea.

Dear LD Jackson - It appear to this observer that someone it out of touch, does not know American history nor American practices nor American precedents.

RIFLES IN EVIDENCE
Chicago Witnesses Spectacle of
Armed Strike Breakers Protecting
Wagons....

Chicago May 2.—Chicago witnessed
today the spectacle of 1,000 nonunion
teamsters armed with Winchester rifles
protecting the wagons of the Employers’
Teaming company. Superintendent
Heed of the Employers’ Teaming
company “states that the rifles may
be carried without infraction of the
law. Chief of Police O’Neill said that
ho would make no attempt to remove
this bristling martial effect from Chicago’s
streets, saying:
“I will not seek to prevent what appears
to be legal. There is no law that
empowers me to prohibit men from
carrying unconcealed weapons, and I
will make no attempt to do so.

“I have seen many men carrying rifles
in the streets of Chicago, and I
never have been called on to molest
them, I could not interfere. I have
cautioned my men to warn all nonunion
and union men not to carry concealed
weapons, but in the matter of
rifles I am powerless.”
Wholesale importations of nonunion
men from St. Louis and the arrival of
Strike Breaker Farley from New York
have given a new turn to the strike.
Farley to Head Strike Breakers.
Immediately on his arrival Farley
held a conference wiih representatives
....
Every wagon sent by the Employers’
Teaming company is protected
by a rifle in the hands of the driver or
his assistant. Two thousand rifles were
ordered. together with ammunition
belt and distributed to the drivers.
The move has been carefully considered
anu the legal aspect looked into.
The officials of the Employers’ association
say they are acting under the
clause in the second amendment of the
federal constitution. which-.says. “The
right of the people to keep and bear
arms shall not be infringed.”
Under decisions of the United States
supreme court it is declared every man
has a right to protect his life or property
provided such arms are not concealed.”

You mean the Second Amendment isn’t about “The Sporting Use of Firearms”?

We will never, EVER, get “good press” on the gun issue—EVER.
Not DC, NYC, LA—not anywhere the MSM holds sway.

If you don’t conprehend this by now, stop reading; climb back into yur hole and forget it.

Unconstitutional laws are NOT LAWS. That’s why they are called “unconstitutional”.

We are most likely going to have to fight this one out, so let’s all pick a good time and place. After all, nobody is going to live forever—at least not on this ball of mud.
The REAL question should be is this the right place and time?

It’s a leftist provocation to make gun owners look crazy.

What should the Allies have done to prevent the Nazi press from giving them bad coverage?

But if one listens to the leftists-socialists one hears them say: Pay no attention to history it may offend someone.

I don’t care how noble the cause or how brilliant the planned action is, I’m not going to follow some commie kook who masquerades as a Republican and lies about his military service to get elected.

This plan sure smells like something Eric Holder fomented. If it happens it’ll give him and Obama all they need to get any gun control legislation passed in the senate.
