Also, you assume that folks who would dare show up armed, would "let" themselves be arrested without trouble?
I think the bureaKaRATZ would find themselves outnumbered, pee their pants and "put off" mass arrests for "another day."
Don't get me wrong, they would take pictures and show up at people's houses one by one, like a good coward would.
I am not assuming anything.
I know during the riots of 68 the Nationa Guard was posted without bullets to guard the Nations Capitol. That was a joke. They just stood there and watched the looting.
That could be what would happen. The guard posted with no bullets. Something else that could happen is some idiot getting pushed and starting a hail of gunfire like Tianamen square. No I don’;t assume anything, but anyone who goes to DC with a million man crowd and a gun better be ready to lose his gun or open fire. It only takes one idiot on either side to make a bloodbath.
