Radio host and activist Adam Kokesh plans to lead an armed march from the Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia all the way to the White House and back.

According to a Facebook event posted by Kokesh, titled “Open Carry March on Washington,” he plans to lead a peaceful march July 4th “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.”

Kokesh states that “this is an act of civil disobedience,” but stresses “This will be a non-violent event, unless the government chooses to make it violent.”

“There’s a remote chance that there will be violence as there has been from government before, and I think it should be clear that if anyone involved in this event is approached respectfully by agents of the state, they will submit to arrest without resisting.”
Live Free or Die
Open carry is prohibited in DC, so I don't feel that will end well for anyone participating. Peaceful intentions, or not, this march will be seen as an act of aggression. I really feel this is the wrong way to go about a protest. It is going to paint a bad image of responsible gun owners that the liberal media is going to have a field day with.
Get your government off my freedom!
I commend anyone that wants to go. It takes a lot of balls to do something like that.

That being said, I won't be there. This could be a tipping point, and I will admit I'm on the fence about it.

On one hand, they are breaking the law. On the other hand, they believe strongly enough to risk jail, or worse.
This will be the best security for maintaining our liberties. A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins. -Ben Franklin
that other hand is tipped heavily with possibly losing 2a rights for life. this is very interesting.
I think empty holsters would be better. That's what students for concealed carry do at college campuses that forbid carry during their protests.

I've reserved a bus, anyone wanna join in?
Is everyone participating in this committing a felony? I'm not trying to commit a prohibiting offense to make a point about keeping my guns.

I'm also finding myself on the fence with this. My only hangup really is with the fact that they will be knowingly breaking the law, but then again the law is unconstitutional. Either way you won't see me out there, I'm about preserving my gun rights, not putting them at risk. I'm not worried about this painting a bad picture for us. Don't get me wrong, it's going to look horrible when the media runs it, but there is no good picture to be painted by the media and this administration no matter what we do.
The law? The law is a human institution...
He's got over 1500 people signed up to march. Too bad none of them work for NBC, then they could break all sorts of unconstitutional laws with impunity.

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.
Paying for welfare is slavery.
