    gee that's funny only 3% of americans fought the british and only 10% supported them. peaceful protest trying to save the 2nd amendment will lead to peaceful surrender of guns. like I said before 40-50 years from now no one will have a gun. if the 2nd amendment is not used how it was intended they will take it away

    There are those that think the whole Kent State mess happened because of an accidental discharge. All those guardsmen were seriously sleep deprived way past the point of effectiveness. Somebody goofed and fired a round. Everybody panicked and fired off their entire clip of 8 rounds (they had Garands) in about 5 seconds. 4 people dead, something like a dozen injured to one degree or another.

    Even if no bone fide nut-cases came to this thing, there'd be enough "conspiracy theorists" on hand that if there was a ND/AD they'd thing the government was after them and then the rest truly would be history.

    Bad idea.

    Those who cry the loudest for war are quite often the ones who have seen the least of it.

    This is pure political fully aware suicide with intent - he intends to cause hate and discontent and use Daddy to "slip out the back" while his deluded followers get slaughtered or incarcerated. The Dear Leader and Eric i-love-giving-guns-to-criminals Holder will have the big national "tragedy" they've been waiting for to divert from the IRS scandal, the Justice/AP scandal, the on-going Fast and Furious scandal, the Benghazi scandal, and anything else that comes up between now and then. Then it will be Katy, bar the door...

    My vote goes to the idea of just carrying 30 round (empty?)magazines. A whole lot less likely to get them arrested/shot by a scared policeman

    And just today it comes out that Justice managed to "misplace" a couple of terrorists that they, for some reason, had in Witness Protection.

    Enough to make me wonder if it's possible the administration is trying to get all of their screwups out in the open NOW, so that when something big happens LATER, it'll sweep everything under the rug....

    quote"Your response is a bit snarky. What's the purpose behind your apparent implied ridicule?

    I didn't post that in order to say "this is war" - I posted it in order to illustrate americans' blind adherence to the status quo no matter how screwed up the status quo is.

    You're OK with the government twisting the constitution in order to steal nearly 40% of your earnings? You're OK with every right you have "protected" by the Bill of Rights (including the RKBA) being trampled in the interests of "the greater good"? The greater good for who? You and I? Nope. The greater good for government officials and those who hold real power.

    I don't believe violence is the only answer to make the changes we need to make, after all - Iceland revolted without bloodshed or violence when their government and banks got too greedy.

    You talk about this being a 2A advocacy site - you talk about how we're here to educate and spread a love for shooting - but you continue to support a government that has been treating the American people like cattle for the past 100 years and whittling away every right we're born with?

    Sorry, but your sarcastic reply has no basis. Our rights are under attack from all sides, our way of life isn't in jeopardy, it was destroyed before we were ever born.

    Not ONE SINGLE American on this board has ever known true freedom.

    I don't know about you, but I would like my children to grow up free, and I won't be a slave."end quote
    Well this is what I have trying to get across when some say this guy leading this supposed march on D.C is for rights beyond gun rights.

    List 10 issues regarding this nation and I bet of those 10 there will be some you and I don't agree with. Are you to say my opinion on the future of this nation is invalid? Are you to show a gun at a march sending a message that you intend to intimidate me and that my voice and vote doesn't matter like yours does? This is the message you send by doing so and that is no way to gain support from others toward your cause.

    A politician voted in sooner or later leaves by peaceful voting. A law deemed unjust can be taken to court and overturned. You call the people cattle to government but its the people who vote in the government. How can you say we are cattle when despite having a anti gun administration in office and a anti gun media and a recent tragedy we STILL beat back proposed anti gun laws? You can't tell me you are living in tyranny given that.

    There may be some things you don't like policy wise right now, you may think it is wrong and unfair or "tyranny" but you can change it by the soapbox, by voting and by the courts.

    Our government which you blame, is not some government made up of a Castro or Chavez, it is not some government that beats you down for voicing your opinion like in Bahrain, it is not some government that that has a dictator like north Korea it is a government put in place by the people so if you have a beef with government use the soapbox and voting or the courts to effect change.

    That is the legacy our founders left us, and so far it still works even if it isn't working the way policy or issue wise you would like to.

    It would be funny if he showed up with 10,000 supporters; all of whom are from various law enforcement agencies who are there to spy on him. "Hey, weren't you at the Police Olympics

    Oh, now THAT would be priceless!

    That would be on the same level of hilarity as the scene in an old S.W.A.T. episode where two would-be crooks pulled guns in the bar all the off-duty cops frequented. "THIS IS A STICK-UP!" and EVERY person in the bar cassually pulled, cocked, and trained their guns on them while still drinking their beer.

    Man, I loved that show!

    Hey...I just dated myself...

    AND, with that I think it is obvious that this one's run its course.
