This has to be a publicity stunt. A march of this type would not secure a permit thereby, under law, the assembly would be unlawful. The measures would devolve into the extreme probably with each side facing the other to the point of violence. Congress would go nuts, the media would go nuts, the zer0 crowd is already nuts, and this would serve to guarantee big trouble via legislation. I agree ... a very bad idea.

Its fine to do at open carry state capitols but bad news to prod the feds unnecessarily. In open carry states you can actually get some OK press. You won't get good press doing it in DC.

You could be right. He probably doesn’t care how much damage this stunt would do to the pro-2nd amendment cause, as long as he gets his personal publicity.

At what point does the populace marched arm on DC? Another rally in DC, probably just a waste of time. What about a group of 10,000 armed citizens standing across the River in Virginia? Regardless, the liberal media isn’t going to give a conservative movement positive publicity...ever. Worry about playing the games by their rules hasn’t worked yet, so why worry about it. Some of the liberal media barely get enough readers or watchers to make any bit of difference.

Joining the NRA? Why, so they can essentially give someone a positive rating on the 2nd Amendment, while the individual shreds the rest of the Constitution? I wish the NRA would stop preaching about our so called 2nd Amendment right, and starting talking about inalienable right/s. Want to stand behind the Constitution, grea. But what happens should it be amended and the 2nd Amendment ruled obsolete?

The question that no one seems to want to answer is where to place line that shouldn’t be crossed. The threshold for the Founding Fathers was a hell of a lot lower than what we are experiencing today...
