2nd Amendment Litmus Test: ‘Peaceful’ Armed March On D.C. Planned For Fourth Of July

A libertarian radio show host is organizing a Fourth of July march on Washington, D.C., by inviting participants to open carry their loaded firearms in a nonviolent organized demonstration.

Adam Kokesh, who hosts the YouTube-based “Adam vs. The Man” radio program, is gathering RSVPs for the planned event on Facebook. The invitation extends to all Americans who own firearms as well as those who don’t, but are supportive of rigidly preserving the unambiguous sanctity of the 2nd Amendment. Law enforcement officers are also invited to take part.

The invitation originally characterized the march as an act of “civil disobedience, not a permitted event.” But Kokesh changed that phrasing, saying he had received a large response from would-be participants and is now coordinating with Washington, D.C., law enforcement in an effort to ensure the event remains peaceful and that the demonstrators aren’t harassed.

Open carry is permitted in Virginia, but not in Washington, D.C., which forbids open carry, does not honor any State’s gun permits and requires residents to register each and every firearm they own, without exception.

Kokesh acknowledges a “remote chance” that an armed march met by any form of organized resistance could turn violent. But the strategy for the march involves peacefully going as far along the planned route as possible, and either turning back if instructed to do so by law enforcement or peacefully submitting to arrest, if law enforcement instead attempts to make arrests.

From the original Facebook invitation:

On the morning of July 4, 2013, Independence Day, we will muster at the [Arlington] National Cemetery & at noon we will step off to march across the Memorial Bridge, down Independence Avenue, around the Capitol, the Supreme Court, & the White House, then peacefully return to Virginia across the Memorial Bridge. This is an act of civil disobedience, not a permitted event. We will march with rifles loaded & slung across our backs to put the government on notice that we will not be intimidated & cower in submission to tyranny. We are marching to mark the high water mark of government & to turn the tide. This will be a non-violent event, unless the government chooses to make it violent. Should we meet physical resistance, we will peacefully turn back, having shown that free people are not welcome in Washington, & returning with the resolve that the politicians, bureaucrats, & enforcers of the federal government will not be welcome in the land of the free.

You are welcome to attend unarmed as a supporter, or armed with a recording device.

In order to follow through with the event, Kokesh states at least 1,000 bodies must be physically gathered on July 4 to take part in the march. To assure that threshold has been met, he said, 10,000 people must RSVP their intention of participating by responding to the invitation on Facebook.

It’s hard not to envision that a Fourth of July march on the capital — with guns — would be heavily “promoted” by a shrill mainstream media, creating a powder-keg set of expectations in viewers entertained by the possibility, no matter how real or artificially stoked, that violent confrontation could erupt.

If the march does go forward, it’s also difficult to imagine the organizers and participants won’t, at the very least, face some form of very public arrest. The idea that these demonstrators will simply be asked to turn around, without fear of legal repercussion (or worse), seems least plausible of all. And in the days and weeks following such a protest, what then? How will Congress and the executive branch respond in the wake of a demonstration — even a peaceful and uneventful one — sure to be branded a “threat” to the safety and security of the seat of world power?

A few Internet commenters have speculated Kokesh is a false flag, planted by the left to ramp up the perception that conservative views and their adherents are dangerously absurd. Maybe; maybe not. It seems implausible, in light of his past.

Kokesh supported Ron Paul as a Presidential candidate for 2012 before souring on what he calls “Ron Paul, Inc.” and distancing himself. Paul had supported Kokesh’s 2010 attempt to win election to a New Mexico legislative seat. The “Adam vs. The Man” radio show was aired not only on Albuquerque AM radio, but also by the Russia Today television network — before being canceled following a Federal Election Commission complaint alleging the show had helped stoke Paul’s campaign with foreign funds.

Kokesh, an Iraq war veteran, received dubious national notoriety in 2007, when he was given a “general” discharge from the Marines after a flap over allegations he wore his service attire at a Washington, D.C., anti-war protest in which he took part.

Personal Liberty

Ben Bullard

Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.

    • flipped54

      Be there in your own presence of spirit, but God does not advocate or bless those who are indifferent to the victims of violence. Take note of Psalms 37:18 “Jehovah is aware of the days of the faultless ones, and their very inheritance will continue even to time indefinite”.

      • http://www.facebook.com/CapitalistAtBirth Greg Murphy

        Who is indifferent to the victims of violence? YOU?

      • vicki

        You should consider carefully what you have posted and then explain why you support Gun Free Zones. (Presumes you do)

  • Breeze13

    I hope they can do this. If left alone, no physical harm will be done, but the point will get across that WE are a free people. I can’t travel across the country, however, I will be on their side.

  • WhiteWolf

    If I could afford the trip from Oregon … I’d be there … armed and loaded!!!

    • flipped54

      In your post I sense a bit of anger exclaiming “Armed and loaded!!!” Many state that this country was founded on Christian values. These values have a source being God’s Word. With that thought in mind take note of Psalms 37:8-9 “Let anger alone and leave rage, do not show yourself heated up only to do evil. For evildoers themselves will be cut off, but those hoping in Jehovah are the ones that will possess the earth”.

      • Steve E

        There won’t be any evil doers in the protest march. It will just be people marching down the street. There is no evil in that. If there is any evil doing, it will be from some other source, not the protesters marching.

        • marylou

          You are totally delusional if you think that there will be no evil doers or crazies…and they will have infiltrated your ranks specifically to create an incident.
          You can’t be that clueless!

      • vicki

        Warning: Amateur psychiatrist at play.

  • Alex

    Good time for some firecrackers…

  • flipped54

    Keep in mind that those who do not open carry guns daily are a free people also, live in the same USA and have the right to not be intimidated or threatened by those who do. There is a law that guards against this very action of threatening. Everyone has the right to peaceful assembly but a large group with open carrying members is a concern to law enforcement. Prove to all Americans that this group can be without indifference to the victims of violence and only then can credibility and trust be something earned and not assumed. The 2nd Amendment does not automatically give credibility and trust to those who open carry. A huge responsibility comes with the right to own and carry guns.

    • Bandofotters

      Sorry, but you don’t have a right not to be intimidated when that intimidation is a product of ones own inferences.

      • flipped54

        Apparently you are intimidated by a responsibility….or a law. No inference was stated, just a reminder of others rights also.

        • Karolyn

          So tired of people thinking they’re better than others because they carry a gun! There are people who don’t like guns. Get over yourself

          • independent thinker

            So tired of people thinking they are better than others because they do not like guns and refuse to have one. Get over yourself.

          • Karolyn

            I have repeatedly posted that I have nothing against gun ownership and that where I live most households have at least one. I don’t, but I don’t begrudge anybody else as long as they’re not nuts or felons.

          • vicki

            If they are nuts keep them in a mental hospital. If they are criminals keep them in jail. It’s really that simple.

          • Karolyn

            So you want to use more taxpayer money to build more hospitals? Not all mental patients need to be in the hospital. You can’t keep most criminals in jail for life; and if you do, you need even more jails too.

          • vicki

            Since we are discussing keeping dangerous tools out of the hands of certain types of people there are only 2 ways to do this. Keep them in jail or kill them. If you are so worried about taxpayer money all of a sudden perhaps you prefer choice number 2?

            Btw you would not need so many jails if you were to stop throwing people in jail for possession. Though you and I may actually be in agreement on that subject.

          • Karolyn

            We are in agreement about too many people in jail, Vicki.

          • vicki

            We are probably even in agreement about why.

            The war on (some) drugs.

          • independent thinker

            Kinda touchy aren’t you Karolyn.. Re-read my comment and show me where I said YOU were either for or against gun ownership. .

          • daveH234

            Karolyn, you make a sensible statement here.
            Independent thinker doesn’t follow the tread and loses the debate. He failed to make a logical rebut to your statement. Failed

          • vicki

            Those people have every right to not like guns. They have NO right to tell us we can’t like or carry them.

          • Karolyn

            I never said they did, Vicki.

          • vicki

            Your position on liberties is well known dear.

    • independent thinker

      “… have the right to not be intimidated or threatened by those who do.”.
      So long as the firearms are being carried in a safe and proper manner there is no intimidation and most certainly no threat shown. If you are intimidated by the sight of a firearm being carried openly you need to seek help for your firearm phobia.

    • vicki

      “Keep in mind that those who do not open carry guns daily are a free
      people also, live in the same USA and have the right to not be
      intimidated or threatened by those who do.”

      So when someone uses a gun to rob you get back to us. There are laws covering the mis-use of guns and we will punish that INDIVIDUAL. If you fear my simple possession of a gun then just stop being afraid. That is entirely in your control.

  • Bandofotters

    Yes, you have the personal right to be stupid. Did you see what happened in California after unloaded open-carry rallies? Celebrate your rights but flaunting them is as dumb as gay pride parades.

    • vicki

      No actually we didn’t. Do you have links to news of those events?

  • Gary Calhoun

    We NEED at LEASE 10 MILLION Man, Woman and child March on DC. EVERYONE go there for this!!!

  • Gary Calhoun

    Make the March Peaceful, Law abiding, Honest, Civilized, American Patriots. NO DRUGS, NO BOOZE!!!

    • Wizzardly

      and NO FIREARMS! That is an invitation to disaster. I can’t think of a better way to convince the statists that the 2nd Amendment has to go, along with private ownership of firearms. This is either a false flag effort to convince middle America that gun owners are gun nuts or just the stupidest idea in a long time, rivaling some of the BHO administration’s stupid ideas.

      • Steve E

        Wizzard, you have to realize that there are some brave people in this country that will stand up for their rights. They are all not like you.

        • marylou

          YOU ARE NOT BRAVE…YOU ARE THE ENEMY
          THEY MAY NOT ENFORCE THE GUN LAWS OF CRIMINALS!
          TRUST ME, they will confiscate YOUR guns, illegally carried into an area that has gun laws.
          That is not peaceful civil disobedience…and you know it!

        • Wizzardly

          Steve E: I’ll forgive your ignorance (I don’t mean that as an insult), because you have no idea what I’m “like”. I put up my hand and wrote the blank check payable on demand to my country for any amount up to and including my life, and I did a year in Vietnam while my wife was having a baby back home that could have cashed that check. And you have no idea what we are doing. We are developing local and state-level candidates for office who support the Constitution. We are educating the public on the meaning and criticality of the Constitution – especially the 2nd Amendment as the enabler of the rest of the Bill of Rights. We are engaging the clergy, the “Black Robe Regiment”, in communicating American Christian values to as many as possible (you don’t have to be a Christian to value love, charity, generosity, honor and integrity – and these are antithetical to the current administration). Get active in your local Tea Party. Join the John Birch Society (we’ve been fighting this fight since the ’50s; if you don’t know about them, look at http://www.jbs.org). Help elect local committee persons who will choose candidates for office based on your values. Campaign for those candidates – go door to door, make phone calls, distribute flyers, set up information tables in public areas. Yeah, it’s actually hard work, but these are activities that will win the battles, and eventually the war for our country.

      • marcdepiolenc

        There is no need to convince statists of the need to oppress us – they are already statists. The people to be reached by this event are the honest but deluded Americans who honestly think that government is on their side and that it can be entrusted with exclusive access to weapons.

    • marylou

      You are living in Fantasy Land..you may want the march to go down peacefully…but OBAMA & CO will not let that happen….
      They want a crisis to blame on RIGHT WING NUT JOBS and you are giving it to them…so they can declare martial law!
      Try to use some common sense!

  • bruceb64

    I am a STRONG Supporter of the 2nd Amendment!!! But This march has “FAIL” Written all over it! One Itchy Finger and it will turn into a BLOOD BATH! Exactly what the Libs Want! Martial Law and WE all are in for a BAD TIME!!!

    • independent thinker

      While I can support the march itself I cannot support being armed especially openly. The chances of Bloomberg inserting a ringer with instructions to start something quite possibly including firing shots is just too great.

      • Nadzieja Batki

        Heed the proverbs about not following a crowd to mischief. Crowd dynamics changes and is unpredictable. You don’t know who will insinuate themselves into this crowd and set up a deliberate conflagration. If the Conservative and Libertarian citizenry is ignored now what is the probability that the crowd will be listened to in D C?

        • 1948Russ

          I belief sending out 1,000 scouts for the publicity is good. We do not need to have ammo do we..?? We are not looking for an enemy… we are just sending our representatives… maybe we should put a zip code on our back…. let everyone know who we are…

    • Smee

      I don’t think loaded weapons is a good idea. Could be someone from the antis will pop off one to start a real bad thing. Could be bloody.

  • FRENCHIE1369

    WHILE I THOROUGHLY SUPPORT THE IDEA OF SUCH A MARCH, I CAN’T IN CLEAR CONSCIENCE ADVISE IT AT THIS TIME, UNDER THIS ADMINISTRATION. THAT’LL BE THE TRIGGER THEY NEED TO UNLEASH HELL ON EARTH FOR GUN OWNERS. I’M BETTING SOME OVER-ZEALOUS ROOKIE COP LOOKING TO MAKE A NAME FOR HIMSELF WILL FIRE THE FIRST SHOT (POSSIBLY UNDER ORDERS TO DO SO) & IT’LL JUST GET MESSY FROM THERE. THEN, THEY’VE GOT THE EXCUSE THEY NEED TO DECLARE TOTAL WAR ON THE 2nd AMENDMENT & THEN THE YOU-KNOW-WHAT’S REALLY GONNA HIT THE ROTARY OSCILLATING DEVICE. IT’S A GOOD IDEA LIKE I SAID, JUST NOT AT THIS PARTICULAR POINT IN TIME. WAY TOO MUCH POTENTIAL FOR THINGS TO GO HORRIBLY WRONG, IF YA ASK ME !!! REMEMBER THE LESSONS OF “LIBERALISM 101″ – “NEVER LET A CRISIS GO TO WASTE”. WELL, HERE’S A PERFECT OPPORTUNITY FOR A “MANUFACTURED” CRISIS………………………………….

    • jdn

      Yes I can see this turning into a blood bath , but I can see Washington DC never again being the Capitol of this country afterward . Government would have to conduct any future business from a secret secured bunker . Also with 80 to 90 million gun owners in this country no federal agent or law enforcement officers would be safe . This would be the beginning of a real civil war .

      • mark

        Yes, but this is what you guys have always wanted – a bloodbath in which you can kill Americans who disagree with you, Americans you cannot defeat in a fair election. Go for it. Only one problem. None of you have got the guts. You’re all internet tough guys. Talk, talk, talk. And zero action.

        • FRENCHIE1369

          WHO ACTUALLY WANTS TO KILL ANYBODY ? IN CASE YOU MISSED THE POINT – IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE A NON-VIOLENT PROTEST. NON-VIOLENT MEANS NOBODY GETS KILLED OR HURT, GET IT ? YOUR “DEAR LEADER” WOULD NEVER ALLOW IT TO GO OFF PEACEFULLY, WHICH IS MY WHOLE POINT. BY THE WAY, WHAT FAIR ELECTION ? THE DOCUMENTED REPORTS OF VOTER FRAUD STRONGLY SUGGEST WE HAVEN’T HAD ONE SINCE ’08 & THE ONLY THINGS PROTECTING “COMRADE OBAMA” ARE ERIC HOLDER’S DERELICTION OF DUTY & INACTION ON THE PART OF CONGRESS !!!

            You know that this will NEVER remain peaceful despite your best intentions! That does not make the the MSM happy or give them a news bite!

            You are setting up Patriots for Liberal slaughter in the media or bloody on the the pavement.

        • vicki

          Who benefits from a blood bath? Not us. Now about fair elections. Were you planning on letting us have one so we can see who would be defeated?

      Another Concord or Lexington would be a good thing to wake up the people. Just like it did before. I’m going so I can make history.

  • wvbh17

    1,000 people. Hmmm. I think not. Now if one could get a crowd together like the close to a million that Glenn Beck organized, three to five million would be better, then you have a force with which to be reckoned. This small number has failed written all over it. And as some have already iterated would be to the benefit of the gun grabbers, or declaration of martial law. I’d say it’s dead in the water. Only an overwhelming force will accomplish what this man hopes to do. Hate to be a wet blanket, but that’s the way I see it. Need more people, more people, more people……………

    • DaveH234

      This according to Wikipedia(I know, it’s submitted info) Regarding the gGLenn Beck rally

      The attendance of the rally was disputed; a scientific estimate placed the crowd size around 87,000, while media reports varied dramatically from tens of thousands to 500,000.

          I posted what was presented in another place. Even made the comment that this is compiled by submitted info.
          It also ran from a low of 87,000 to a high estimate of 500,000.

    It will require a lot of courage to attend such a gathering at any rate. I am hoping this will amount to more than just singing a bar of Alice’s Restaurant.

  • fred pucker

    This old Vietnam vet will be there. I just hope that I can get some help up the hills in my wheelchair. I can only walk about 300 yards. I will not be carrying a gun, but a Bible and a copy of the bill of Rights will be on my lap.

      Listen to this wise VIETNAM VET. and follow his example..carry a Bible and the Bill if Rights.

      Tar would violate some EPA “law” somewhere.

    Cannot understand why people go looking for trouble. Trouble comes without an invitation! Very foolish idea, but then common sense seemingly deluded humans from the dawn of history, so be it! Chip on shoulder? Something to prove? WHo knows- we just have to wait and see, but another bad day ahead seems to be on the horizon!

    • Steve E

      Just like Concord and Lexington which facilitated in our obtainment of freedoms.

  • Bill Peterson

    I support the spirit of the idea however; it is against the law as others have stated. I think the Govmt wouldn’t miss the chance to exploit an opportunity like this. I would suggest support and join in with the same march using replica non-firing weapons. Wewould achieve the same results without breaking the law. One must remember the 2nd amendment allows us “the right to carry and bear arms” for the
    purpose of maintaining a peaceful law abiding society.

    • Steve E

      Only problem is that the law is unconstitutional, which is unlawful in itself.

      • Chester

        You can get killed just as dead violating an unconstitutional law as a constitutional law. Until the law is changed, best to try to abide by it, at least in form. This man is begging for a firefight, then is guaranteed to be at least a thousand miles away when it breaks out.

        • vicki

          The nice folk on Lexington Green understood. Some of them did in fact pay the ultimate price for insisting on protecting their (and your) rights.

          Would you prefer that they stood down that day?

    • vicki

      “it is against the law as others have stated.”

      It can NOT be against the law to keep and bear arms as that is an explicitly protected right. Any law that violates that right is null and void from inception.

      The problem is that the people enforcing the (unlawful) law have and will use (ironically) guns.

      Thus we need to open the Jury Box and find such defendants Not guilty by reason of Jury Nullification. (www.fija.org)

      One of the many reasons the 2nd Amendment is in the Bill of Rights is that the founders knew that people in power would use every trick in the English language to try and take away people’s possessions. Just look at the “law” being referenced. Even SCOTUS has acknowledged that the right to keep and bear arms is an INDIVIDUAL right yet Washington DC still has “laws” forbidding the people from keeping and bearing arms when not at home. The gun grabbers will even point out the SCOTUS comment on “reasonable restrictions” thus further showing why the founders worded the 2nd so very specifically. “…shall NOT be INFRINGED”.

  • Robert Wolfe

    Oh my! Don’t think I’ll be joining in for fear of being machine gunned down, or gassed. King Barrack the First isn’t likely to miss the opportunity to show the rest of the world he doesn’t like his castle threatened. A litmus test? I think the litmus is likely to turn red. Too soon to become martyrs, you may be needed in the days ahead.

  • mark

    Yeah, this armed and loaded march will be a great idea. Have some frothing-at- the-mouth, rabies victim like Alex Jones lead it. It will probably drive the 1% of voters who supported the Libertarian Party candidate for president last year down to one quarter of 1%. I have an even better idea, let’s have a million young African-American men armed with loaded AR-15s and multiple clip bandoliers march right up to your house in your neighborhood, screaming for blood and vengeance. Hey, they have a Constitutional right to do so. It is their right as Americans, you traitors! And don’t you dare deny it to them!

    • http://www.facebook.com/CapitalistAtBirth Greg Murphy

      Bring them on. We are ready. They are not ready for the push back.

    • Frank Kahn

      Pathetic, will you ever learn how to conduct yourself as an intelligent adult. The march is nothing even marginally close to the same as your proposal of black threats. If those million worthless blacks did that we would have the undisputed right to kill everyone of them because of the threats they were (as you said) yelling. Happy to oblige them too. If a large group of extremely racist blacks start screaming for vengeance against whites for something nobody is guilty of today, then they deserve to die. What you described was not a peaceful assembly, it was an armed mob of people with criminal intent. They have no protection under the constitution, only under the racist laws put into place to give them more privileges than normal people. And they are not normal. Normal people don’t run around blaming everyone else for their own problems. I never owned a slave, and none of them was ever a slave. I have never oppressed anyone, black, Mexican, Indian, Muslim, Hindu, black, white, yellow or red. The fact that you are a black African lover does not make your anti-white racism valid. Maybe you are guilty of keeping blacks down, I dont know, I only know that you are wrong when you constantly accuse every white person of doing it.

      And, as to the frothing at the mouth leaders, get a life, we are not frothing at the mouth or hell bent on killing innocent people. We want to be left alone by liberals. We want you to take your mental problems and get help. Stop crying and hiding in fear of peaceful citizens who carry guns. We are not a threat to you, or are we? You want to restrict my access to weapons? You think you have some imaginary right to take away my freedoms? You ready to try it? Maybe you are in danger. It is up to all you liberal mental cases. You want to die? Keep it up, keep trying to impose your personal prejudices on us and it can happen.

      Worst case of suicide I ever saw officer, that liberal ran right in front of my bullets. (that is humor, in case you never heard a suicide joke)

    • independent thinker

      “..march right up to your house in your neighborhood, screaming for blood and vengeance. Hey, they have a Constitutional right to do so.”
      No they do not have that right unless you have NO land surrounding your house. To march right up to my and many many others house they have to set foot on private property. The moment they do that “screaming for blood and vengeance” and especially if armed they loose that right. While they loose their right to their demonstration once they set foot on my property I gain the right to eliminate any of them I consider a direct and immediate threat to my family or myself.

Let the 2nd Amendment “Speak For Itself” Please don’t fall for this “Trap” because that will be all it takes for every anti – 2nd Amendment Agency in this Country to scream “See, We Were Right” Guns must be confiscated from everyone!! This bears the resemblance of a “Classical Set Up ” and even if I’m all alone out in left field…. This is one extremely dumb March to even contemplate attending. Why take the risk of giving actual nut jobs the opportunity to adversally effect the 2nd Amendment or worse…..start a possible situation to cause loss of life? Please rethink the need to “March On Washington DC” with loaded Guns. Common Sense should tell everyone…no good will come of this. There are just as effective ways to voice our opinions and beliefs without putting lives in jeopardy!

    • vicki

      It actually would be just as useful if 20% (or more) of the gun owners in the country all showed up with just signs proclaiming the self evident truth that

      ~300 Million Americans didn’t shoot ANYONE. EVER. And that
      we are way past tired of being punished for the acts of a very few.

      The influx of tourist capital would even help the D.C. economy.

  • K.Bruce

    PS: In my humble opinion ( of which we all have the freedom to still openly express ) i believe Mr. Glenn Beck, and Mr. Rush Limbaugh along with a few other are actually making every honest effort to inform America to the ” Truth ” of what is going on in this Country before it becomes ” Too Late ” for our Country to reverse the Un-American Trends you can see if you’re half awake…and seeking some truth and awareness in your life. There are those in powerful positions who seek the total “Transformation ” of America. Sure, we have problems in many areas…but does America need to be totally made over into something we will regret? Maybe if more True Americans would listen to ” Talk Radio ” and Subscribe to ” The Blaze . com/TV ” we will still have a fighting chance at keeping our ( Freedom ” for future Generations!

    • mark

      Glen Beck and Rush Limbaugh are making huge personal fortunes off their programs while playing at being these great patriots. Please. They are in it for the dough – just like the giant corporations, just like the defense contractors, just like the gun manufacturers, just like the global bankers. If you think these people are not in this for the money, you are thinking like a six-year old. When I was a six year old, I too believed in patriotism. But I ain’t six anymore. And I now know a scam when I see one. And that is what most of these “patriot” theatrics concerning a whole gamut of issues are all about. What did Samuel Johnson famously say? “Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel.”

      • vicki

        They may be in it for the “dough” but I see no problem at all with them earning money doing something good. Same with gun manufacturers. To keep and bear arms someone has to actually make them.

        • DaveH234

          Your opinion that they are doing good is a minority viewpoint. Glenn Beck was a lowly DJ before he caught the Limbaugh “bug”. He’s foisting fables on his followers and is a false “God”.
          Limbaugh doesn’t even count in his audacity to thinking people of the world. And that is my opinion. It happens to be a majority view out in the public, too.

          • vicki

            That’s the beauty of the 1st Amendment. People actually doing good get to even when people like you disagree and we even require that government let you disagree.

            We only get annoyed when YOU try and FORCE us to think or do things your way.

          • Dave

            I hear you there Vicki… Like conservatives do with laws that ban same sex-marriage, anti-choice laws… FORCING others to think or do things your way…

            Sure is annoying isn’t it?

          • Bob666

            Well played Dave!

          • vicki

            don’t forget to complement my complementary response to Dave :)

          • Bob666

            Well Vicki,

            I am starting to see the allure that RBT has for you:>

            BTW, If you have paid attention, I too am a Libertarian as well. I don’t care if you have an abortion or own a fire arm. According to my beliefs, its not my place to tell you what you have the right to do, nor your place to tell me.

          • vicki

            Really? If a murderer went to kill you? Would you not want me to tell him to not kill you? And to use whatever tools handy to stop him if just words did not get the point across?

            There is nothing in the Libertarian platform that condones murdering people at any age.

          • vicki

            See. It is possible for liberals like dave and I (libertarian btw) to agree on some things. Like not caring about what consenting adults do for partners. Objecting to laws that ban the possession of things (anti-choice laws). Well some things. Dave and co. don’t seem to like me possessing guns even though I support their possessing weed. No accounting for taste.

            Now on the matter of forcing others to think that is not possible so I don’t know what dave is talking about there.

          • Dave

            Well Vicki, where have I ever said I don’t like you pssessing guns? Please tell me where I have ever said this.

            Also, I don’t do drugs except for caffiene.

            Why is everything all or nothing with you?

          • Bob666

            Yo Dave,
            For some-it is a black and white world-No grey.

          • vicki

            There are many daves here. You might be one who is willing to stand up for the

            ~300 Million Americans who didn’t shoot anyone.

            Can we count on you to tell the gun grabbers to

            STOP PUNISHING the INNOCENT for the acts of a very few?

          • Dave

            I am THE Dave that challenges your bumpersticker mentality and questions you regularly on your nonsense stance. Why have any laws at all under your thinking? Background checks for all gun sales is not a “gun grab”. Repeating the same lie does not make it true. Common sense gun safety laws are not a “gun grab” no mattter what the NRA lies heavily about.

          • vicki

            Yay. Thank you for answering the question. Oh have you found a reason yet why

            ~300 Million Americans should give up some of their God given rights because of the actions of a VERY few?

  • BrotherPatriot

    My professional opinion (Former special forces, Navy SEAL here) is the following.
    Though I support the idea of what this message would be trying to convey, the going about it is incorrect.
    I would like to suggest (and I hope this propagates) to initially within the cemetery that they originate from (where it is legal to be openly armed) they all muster locked & loaded. Then follow the following initiative order…
    1. Muster.
    2. Formation of unorganized militia in marching ranks. Officer’s at appointed positions.
    3. March to border of lawful carry.
    4. There stop & exchange for proxy weapon/item. Becoming Lawful.
    5. Detach a small unit to guard the real firearms being forced behind due to unlawful laws passed by criminals who have reached high positions within our Government. Unlawful laws that prevent our God given right to bear arms in Washington D.C. The “capital” of our great Nation.
    6. Proceed with the planned march and return to detachment.
    7. Once safely back to detachment, rearm and finish the Event.
    God Bless America & the Patriots willing to water the Tree of Liberty.

    • marylou

      FINALLY A MODICUM OF COMMON SENSE…thank you, and they will have accomplished their mission without bloodshed…and isn’t that the goal!

      • marcdepiolenc

        The mission is to march ARMED through DC. Doing it with cap pistols does not accomplish the mission.

    • scot_belle

      Proxy switch of loaded LEGAL fire arms….for pitchforks which are highly visible as a means of announcing that even without fire arms American Citizens will still fight for freedom!!

      Along with my rifle, I do keep my pitchfork very close to hand, and I will until some idiot chooses to try to remove either one from my hands!!

      • http://www.facebook.com/joe.hyland.9 Joe Hyland

        Pitchforks….nice touch. I like it!

  • laidbackrebel

    I will not abide anyone coming to me to threaten, or remove my liberty. At this time, I am still a smoldering fuse, that in time may explode. But I will not give them overt reason to fear me, and kill me.

  • marylou

    CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE, with a loaded gun, will be the GUN GRABBERS excuse to infiltrate the march, create chaos, and do more harm to the Second Amendment than anything OBAMA & CO could possibly pull off on his own!

    I totally support the Second Amendment but this March is a preordained disaster because the Liberal MSM will create an incident to completely destroy its peaceful intent and message. Count on it!
    Who is this idiot who thinks his type of disobedience has merit…an OBAMA troll???

  • to smart for my own good

    I think this is the first deception of the real gun grab… get a lot of fanaticals to show up for a march… with loaded guns… which is illegal… Round them all up IN DC, throw them in prison and sell their guns to mexico. If it were a federal offense to carry a weapon in DC… they could probably call all the marchers terrorists and not even read them their Miranda rights…. cart em off to Guantanamo Bay and have a reason for Obummer to keep it open…. by deporting prisoners of war against the USA to Cuba and never deal with them again.
    Wouldn’t that be fancy?
    I don’t think anyone will make it across the bridge personally… but maybe that’s just me?
    I think it is too costly an idea to actually follow through with it on my end… I do hope that someone is brave enough to test the system and find out if we are slaves or free men…. but the hike is not going to happen on my end.

    • vicki

      Since, as you rightly pointed out, ” a march… with loaded guns… which is illegal” we are obviously intended to be slaves. Of course it can NOT be illegal to possess and carry loaded guns as it is our God given right to do and the Constitution explicitly states “….shall NOT be INFRINGED.”

      Government infringes on it every day thus treating us as slaves. Many would say we are treated as slaves in other ways too.

      • DaveH234

        So it’s the Constitution that gave you the rights….Not the God you keep spouting about?

        • BrotherPatriot

          You know not what you speak of. God given rights that the Constitution merely ratifies.
          God Bless knowledgeable truth to all those in need…

          • vicki

            DaveH234 apparently is unfamiliar with the English language. I clearly stated that the right was God Given.

        • vicki

          Reading comprehension problems daveH324 or just doing the liberal word twist?

      • Dave

        Vicki,
        Is a hand gun, shotgun or rifle an “arm”?
        What part of the US Constitution says you can own a automatic weapon with unlimited capacity magazine? Nowhere…
        So you can still have your “arms” but the majority do not want assault weapons on the street with large magazines. So you should be happy with the smaller arms. The Gov is perfectly within its right when the people want it to limit the types of arms. You still have your “arms” and unless you can point to the type arms the founders said was ok since you like to completely ignore what section 8 of the Constitution says and what the term “well regulated” means.
        If assault weapons are outlawed, your right to “bear arms” is in tact with your ability to own handguns, shotguns and rifles.
        That is a fact.

        • vicki

          Yes. 2nd Amendment. What the majority wants is not in the least relevant to a Constitutionally Limited Republic. you should be happy with a soap box but currently the government lets you type here (as does Bob Livingston). The government has NO rights. Only the powers We, The People delegate to it. You have constantly ignored us when we point out that the founders intended us to possess the terrible instruments of the soldier so why would you change now. You have constantly ignored explanations of the structure of the 2nd Amendment so why would you change now. Section 8 does not address the right of the people to keep and bear arms. The 2nd does not say “…keep and bear some arms…”

        • RonWillison

          Dave. You are again wrong. There is are no limits placed on or defined as off limits to We The Peoples anywhere in the Constitution. The intent of allowing the people to maintain weapons is to protect against threat from both without and within. If the enemy has cannons. How would you defend yourself and stop a coup with a shot gun?

          Our US Constitution and Bill of Rights were not thrown together in some willy nilly fashion by men with too much time on their hands.They and everyone who fought, bled or died to provide that moment in time, had as their primary focus.The intent to produce a Charter containing the laws that would define and protect {EVERY} US citizen, no matter what their station in life from the tyrannical injustices and abuses that they had suffered at the hands of The British Royal Crowns soldiers, tax collectors, ruthless unscrupulous businessmen and the machinations of deceptive bankers and other purveyors of Usury. which they had experienced as horrors to be avoided at all costs.

          The founding fathers were not ALL perfect men. Some were self serving men with personal agenda’s that were scorned then and would most likely be scorned today. On whole they did have one common belief. That was to include into the Constitution the ability to defend itself from attack by both foreign and domestic forces. They gave much thought and spent long hours discussing and perfecting what would be the final foundational document that our country would have as it’s supporting structure.

          That brings us to the events taking place today. It is a safe bet to conclude that the order in which the guidelines and laws are placed within that document. Speaks volumes about the importance the framers placed upon the individual mandates and the value each represented to maintain and secure the Country’s status as a sovereign nation state over time.

          One. The freedom of unfettered, free from retribution by government Speech. With special provisions for the Press. The Intent to insure public discourse and keep the people informed about what the government was doing in the peoples name. They understood that an informed people would provide the checks and balances needed to insure peace, stability, and the general well being of the country as a whole.

          Two. In our second amendment rights to keep and bare ARMS. The framers left no room for doubt. no ambiguity, no Interpretations needed or possible.The precise structure of the words,”SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED” Can not be gotten around. They understood that the ARMED citizens would utilize the second amendment to protect the first amendment if the need arose. They knew that in our country’s future. There would be those bent on destroying our country by destroying the foundational strengths contained within the US Constitution. Knowing that. They included in that work the description’s of, and remedy’s for. Acts of Treason, Sedition and other High Crimes. And like it or not. Today’s current events demonstrate just how far into the future they could see.

    • Dave

      So much conservative media paranoia and so little factual information.

      Freedom comes with responsibility and those responsibilities get put into law. To some people here, laws are for other people to follow and common sense gun safety measures are an “ATTACK” on our freedoms.

      Some other people view the 2nd Amendment as black and white while the other amendments are “open to interpretation”. Many of these same people forget about section 8 of the Constitution that spells out what a “milita” and they they are part of that “milita” when they clearly are not.

      The questions are: How easily do we as a society want to make it for people to pick up weapons of mass deestruction and use them in crimes of passion? Do we wish to address the underlying causes of why we are so quick to pick up a gun in an argument or dispute?

      If you are a “Slave” “to smart…. then someone controls where you can go… You are free go go wherever you want or even leave this country if you don’t like it. That is not slavery. That is another misuse of a term by conservatives which is nothing new.

      • vicki

        “Many of these same people forget about section 8 of the Constitution that spells out what a “milita” and they they are part of that “milita” when they clearly are not.”

        Would that be article 1 section 8 or article 2 section 8?

        • mnkysnkle

          It’s possible that Dave is a “section 8″. I’m sorry, I couldn’t help it!

      • RonWillison

        Your problem is you refuse to see what is right in front of your face. While sure i can agree with you that on a large scale. The powers the Patriot Act, Subsets attached to the NDAA and pile of Presidential Executive Orders grabbed by our last two president’s have not been openly abused in a large televised way yet. Some of us are adept enough to know that when we see the likes of Lindsey Graham ranting and stumping to get the two Chechen’s labelled as Enemy combatant’s. Even though they are Certified american citizens. We are able to see that for what it is. An attempt at getting precedent set for an unconstitutional law, thereby validating it. If those that authored that piece of work (ie) NDAA had tried that 200 plus years ago.They would have been hung by the neck until dead by our ancestors.

  • Karolyn

    And you don’t think that one or more hotheads, if provoked, will use those guns?

When you cross that border with Arms you have placed yourself in a GRAVE Situation were the Left can use and will cause a conflict that will in turn give obammmmmma a reason to use the stroke of his famous PEN and order Martial Law !!.

Folks if you have not been in one of the Armed Forces that has seen aggression and the Fire Power that can be put on you at the Blink of the Eye then I highly suggest that you start training ASAP and those that have should take control of the willing and assist them !!!!! Remember we must

  • Dave

    I do not see problem with any march. If I like boats and me and my fellow boaters want to bring attention to boating… Bring the boats and get the proper permits then march. Thats all.

    • Ed Williams

      Back to our Constitution: the right of the people to peaceably assemble is another of those little things that are absolute, and are not to be infringed. No mention anywhere of licenses or permits, which create illegal, privileged classes. Once you actually look at present day government practices in light of the Constitution, it is much like opening Pandora’s Box on steroids.

  • JACAMO

    I have been reading a lot of comments on similar websites from current and former military & police stating they would stand with the citizens in support of the Constitution should the gov’t move to confiscate arms. DC has unconstitutional firearms laws, but any move by an armed group into DC ( the seat of Federal Govt.) would by definition become and armed insurrection. Any troops or Fed police ordered to the scene would be Constitutionally obligated to put down the insurrection. A significant portion of these could be some who have stated their support. We have a lot of citizens who take their oath to the Consttution very seriously. We don’t need to throw that away or put them in a position to do things they don’t want to for a march that could easily be hijacked by the opposition. Do the march, but do it as the ex-Seal suggested to reduce the possibility of a “plant” turning the event into the start of a war where we lose support before it starts. Civil war or martial law may be coming, but we need to keep public support ( such as it is ) and the military on our side as much as possible.

    • vicki

      “armed insurrection”

      http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/insurrection
      —————————————————————————–
      an act or instance of revolting against civil authority or an established government.
      —————————————————————————–

      Yep certainly looks like it. But wait. the current government is in violation of the contract that brought it into existence thus voiding that contract and removing itself from lawful existence. Bummer.

      I do agree that we should follow that advice given by the Navy Seal in a post below though. Less opportunity for an agent provocateur

      • BrotherPatriot

        Ty, Vicki. I have always liked your work as well.
        I also think this is a good idea of course and it helps me protect my fellow American from perhaps a felony that ironically can take their gun rights away…if I understand all that correctly.
        God Bless us all as our society fights for it’s right to live morally in His eyes. No more lies.

        • vicki

          Welcome :)

          Btw if the “crime” is carrying a firearm then the “law” is null and void from inception as would be the label of felony.

      • JACAMO

        The govt. has been working on voiding that contract for years, but being removed from lawful existance doesn’t remove it from power. We need to keep as much of the mlitary and police potentially on our side, by acting constitutionally as much as possible forcing the opposition into overtly unconstitutional moves. The idea is not to just make a show, but to win and keep our Constitution.

    • Dave

      I think the Supreme Court struck down DC’s gun ban so it is no longer illegal to own a gun in DC.

      Growing up in the DC area, everyone knew the “gun ban” is a joke and that legalizing the drugs that were the main cause of the gun violence in that city would have been a better solution to the gun violence.

      Marital Law is not coming and if some want Civil war, I have a very pragmatic solution… Give all the conservatives Texas and call it a day. Except for Austin, I have no use for Texas, nothing good politically has EVER come from Texas and then all the conservative anarchists has have a church in every street corner, carry bazookas at will and institute the bible as the law of the land. They can call it “Jesusgunscorporatismland”
      The rest of us can work on making America a better country.

      • JACAMO

        It is still illegal to carry on the streets of DC and DC is the seat of Fed govt. Martial law being declared depends on the Pres. declaring it…Do you have inside infomation?

      • SloBlo

        What does Marital Law have to do with this discussion? Also, don’t mess with Texas… could be dangerous… just saying.

      • RonWillison

        Dave you said, “nothing good politically has EVER come from Texas” You wrong. Ron Paul came from TEXAS. Its just too bad the American masses didn’t care enough about their country to turn off their chosen mainstream talking bobblehead who gave them the opinion they were allowed to have. That being. “Ron Paul is UNELECTABLE” If the masses had cared enough. We wouldn’t be having this conversation. Furthermore. The biggest reason I see for going through with the 4th march is the fact that no matter how it turns out. A whole lot of the sleepers are going to be slapped out of their wet dreams. And in the end that will cause them to start looking around. They may even see the connection between the total silence and lack of so much as a peep by those in law enforcement where the Election Fraud, Rigging and Voter suppression that happened during our National Embarrassment 2012 Primary’s and Election’s, and the over the top SUICIDE rates taking place by our returning service personnel. Do you think that maybe some of those guys and gal’s wearing US uniforms who dug deep and mailed contributions to the Paul campaign might be asking themselves. So I killed,maimed and destroyed for this? It has been over half a year and out of DC we get SILENCE! And each and every day that goes by with out this matter being addressed. More and more of our Children that don’t kill themselves will most likely wind up filling the VietNam Vets stations at a freeway offramp near you. Mentally broken and unable to hold a job with a sign that says. Will work for food.

  • Nadzieja Batki

    Ann Coulter had this definition of a mob in her book DEMONIC, “Everything else changes, but mob are always the same. A mob is irrational, childlike, often violent organism that derives its energy from the group. Intoxicated by messianoc goals, the promise of instant gratification, and adrenaline-pumping exhortations, mobs create mayhem, chaos, and destruction, leaving a smoldering heap of wredkage for their leaders to climb to power.”
    There is no such entity as a good mob, unless it is a prayer meeting and I would still question its dynamics. Who is the person who dominates the group?

    • Dave

      You lost me at “Coulter” Nads
      But under that definition, then a large group of heavily armed wannabe Patriots under the imaginary tyranny from a person they perceive as a socialist Kenyan could yield what?
      destruction? chaos?
      So just like those who believe in the “Rapture”, lets do things to provoke a response to justify the wannabe patriots thinking.

    Is there really any wonder why we are losing ALL of our rights? We are a complete nation of cowards! We will NOT stop this monster that is destroying our country from within unless we stand up and do something about it. There are very few men left in this country, and finally one has stood up and stated what needed to be said. I keep hearing the same thing, “This isn’t a good idea.” Another big statement is “This isn’t the right time for such an action.” People, when will be the right time? Look at why we fought our Revolution; do you think the MEN that FOUNDED this country would have allowed all of our rights to be stripped away like they have been over the last twenty years? If we still had REAL men in this country who stood up for what they believed and wanted their children to continue to grow up in a FREE REPUBLIC, we would have already taken back our government and our Bill of Rights. People will continue to say idiotic and weak remarks about what NEEDS to happen until we are completely under the control of the Federal government. Oh wait, we already are under their complete control! I guess most of you would rather your children grow up in a communist dictatorship than in a free republic huh? Spin it any way you like, but if you are too afraid to stand up for your and your children’s rights than you might as well go ahead and surrender now, because LOGIC will tell us things are NOT going to get any better without some intervention!

I am inclined to believe what someone already said that this is ramped up by a left wing liberal.

    If they’re going to march, they should march around the white house 7 times, quiet as a mouse, then. on the 7th trip around they should blow their trumpets as loud as possible. Then the Victory!!! (For those of you who know what I’m talking about, pray about it, it worked before!!!)

Since the event for this has been announced far enough in advance, it allows the Feds to set up government patsies to demonize peaceful gun owning protests by acting as irresponsible as Eric Holder and the rest of the government, anti-gun crowd. Then, the Feds can claim that gun owners are irresponsible, violent, law breakers, and will have the perfect excuse to claim that the 2nd Amendment needs to be abolished.

    This is a bad, bad idea! Clearly, Mr. Kokesh is a lunatic for suggesting such an outrageous idea that has all the potential of turning into a catastrophe . At this point, i would be highly suspicious of Mr. Kokesh!

    I don’t care what Kokesh’s motive is – this needs to happen. It puts the Fedgov right in the spotlight, and sets the rules of engagement clearly at the outset, so that the burden of MAINTAINING the peace falls on those most likely to disturb it, namely the Authorities. The danger of provocateurs working for the government or for left-wing causes is there, but a clear safety briefing at the assembly point need only include the instruction to fall flat on the ground upon hearing gunfire, which will immediately make it clear to anyone observing and filming the march who is at fault, and deprive trigger-happy government goons of any excuse to fire into a crowd.

    Protests are ok, but I don’t think it should be armed. That’s just an accident waiting to happen. Here’s another option. March on D.C. yes, but coordinate it with a march at every state capital at the same time. If you attend then record the event and YouTube it; live stream if you can (you can call out MSM for not covering it). Do not attend any city fireworks displays and don’t partake in any city festivities or festivals celebrating the 4th. (this includes beverage and food venders supporting these functions). Pack a lunch and clean up after yourselves. This should apply to Colorado especially. But; if you really want to “watch the fireworks”, and be a “tourist”, you should go to and patronize any of the states that recently re-affirmed their stand with the 2nd., and in particular “The Constitution”. Yeppirs,,,, I think Wyoming is going to get a lot of tourists and hunters from Colorado this year.

    Marching on Washington is good but no firearms. That’s an accident waiting to happen.

    Actually, Wash DC will be so mobbed already with tourists waiting to see the fireworks display that they won’t notice the protesters. Plan another date.

    This is a government prop to further their agenda. DON’T FALL FOR IT!!!
    They would love nothing more than to use this event to pass more freedom stripping laws starting with our 2nd amendment. An unarmed population is a submissive population, perfect for our marxist presidente’.

    Just a thought to ponder. Not only is a a statist planted designed peace wrecker a possibility. There also exists the possibility that some emotionally charged or unbalanced relative of say a child killed in one of our Sandy Hook type of events that may be so grief stricken as to just say. I’ll help the gun grabbers by firing the first shot and once the guns are all taken. No other parent will have to feel my pain. Just sayin. I don’t think there is a way to factor in that kind of loose cannon. While I understand the underlying principle and driving motivation behind those organising this march. The problem I have with it is that once again I see people doing what many of our doctors are doing today. Trying to treat the symptoms of the ailment as opposed to going after the root cause. What follows is a cut and paste from a comment I just posted under another article on this site titled “Lieberman:Terror Terror Throw Money At It” I guess personal liberty didn’t like what I had to say. They removed my comment. No worries tho. I save everything I post. They will probably remove this one too. If Joe Lieberman cared one iota about America. He would have the spine to call a duck a duck. But since everything that has come out of his face since 9-11-01 has been aimed at putting an Orwellian two way TV in every room in every house in America. Joe Lieberman needs crawl back under the rock he just resurfaced from. For those that don’t know what duck I was talking about above. Google The “BALFOUR DECLARATION” / “The HUSSEIN McMaHon LETTERS” / “The “FEDERAL RESERVE ACT of 1913″ / “Who promoted and helped fund the creation of the UNITED NATIONS” Then, take a long hard look at the DETAILS contained within “The UN RESOLUTION TO PARTITION PALESTINE 1948″ And finally a quick peek at the goings on within the real-estate now called ISRAEL for the last 65 years. Those that do that will know why Joe Lieberman and associates would rather turn America into a prison,fuel the fires burning up our Constitution, and fan the flames of anger aimed at America from abroad by not having the guts to call a duck a duck. There would be no foreign Gihadi Terrorist’s types looking to cause America harm if America was not joined at the Hip and running interference at the UN with her VETO powers where Israel’s mis-guided unlawful treatment of the Palestinian Arab’s, Christian’s, Jew’s, and Other’s is concerned. Those people were, and what’s left of them still are the real victims in this mess. The home grown extremists are a direct result of the treacherous and seditious constitutional circumvention and unlawful workarounds that have been shoved down our throats, like the Patriot Act and the off the hook powers handed to the Administration’s going forward into the unforeseeable future contained within the NDAA. That is the Duck that Joe Lieberman refuses to call a duck.

    Do not go to Washington D.C. with loaded firearms. This would be exactly what Obama and Holder hopes will happen. He has already gave himself the power to declare martial law and he wont hesitate a second to take control of this Nation and when he does that there will be no getting our freedoms back. There would be an order for all Americans to turn in their guns and our homes would be overran by the military takeing those guns.He has replaced Military commanders to make sure they would obey the order to either take our guns or kill Americans. if they disobey.

    No, if this event happens Obama would be happy to take total control, Congress has already proven they don’t have the backbone to stop him and they would not even attempt to because they are helping him. They are all the same, liars and cowards and they want power and they will do what ever they have to to get It even if that means killing American citizens. Please Americans don’t listen to this fool and march on Washington with loaded weapons, many of you wouldn’t return home.
