      to make sure they only have the correct guns according to his definition.  Does that make him the person who gets to define what guns are allowed in the D of C?  If someone brings a sidearm or a concealed weapon, are they not allowed in by this guy's sayso?
      He's a nut, trying to start a movement, and be the head dude.  I predict FAIL.  One way or another.

      Be bold. Be courageous. Americans are counting on you. Gabby Giffords.

    •  He is definately wanting to make himself and his (6+ / 0-)

      buddies intimidating. This guy's a veteran and a nut case. Why isn't he being taken into custody and questioned? What is D.C. think about this and how are they planning to handle this?

      And he thinks he can guarrantee that 900+ people with loaded weapons will back down if they start to get arrested? And if they don't get arrested, why not? And why did so many OWS peaceful unarmed people end up in jail, pepper sprayed and beat?

      Does this guy even have a permit? Will he be granted a permit? I noticed in a news story on another site that he wants the numbers higher to even try to do this. This may be his out and nothing at all will happen.

      But I'm angry. This isn't about free speech or liberties. It's clearly meant to intimidate and it's a form of bullying. It's disgusting and I hope that it doesn't happen. Even if it goes off without a hitch, it's clearly showing the 90% that they don't care about them or their liberties. Only their own.

      I don't want to live, my children to have to live or my grandchildren, in the world these nuts want to create. They want to invent a police state so their conspiracy theories will be proven. They don't want a real government and think things would be better if they could only walk around publically with loaded weapons and do whatever they please with them.

      At some point, we have to stop this. It's gone on way too long and way too far. Why can't the will of the majority of people make a difference anymore? Why do we have to even put up with this? I'm very sad for my country right now. I want it back.

        I agree with you 110%.

      •  Heres an update on this (0+ / 0-)

        Found a local news source, the DCist, that has interviewed the D.C. police chief. I thought you guys might be interested in reading this:

        The plan is to meet the protesters at the DC side bridge, before they can march into the district itself. Not only will the DC police be there (MPD), but the US Park Police will be there for a meet and greet, as well, since the memorial bridge falls under their jurisdiction.

        This answers some of my questions and it also gives me hope that Kokesh and his band of disconents will decide not to go through with it. I sincerely hope he gets the message and does the right thing.
