The revised Reddit post, Im waiting on advice on where to drop it.
I've been in a couple lengthy debates about this on firearmstalk.com. After about a week, we actually came to a consensus on a few things:
The purpose of the march is valid but the execution is potentially harmful to the cause of second amendment preservation.
Adam Kokesh, while charismatic and well intentioned, should not officially have exclusive control over this event. Leadership comes in many forms and we have no shortage. For the sake of credibility, should that be a concern, new leadership or at least a more inclusive style of it should be utilized.
As for the march itself.
A better way of making a point would be to carry black powder rifles into DC for the following reasons:
a) They aren't legally considered firearms so open carry laws wouldn't be violated and they might actually have a chance at marching through DC instead being stopped at the bridge by law enforcement.
b) It creates a lovely irony, in that many gun-control groups insist (incorrectly) that the second amendment applies only to muskets.
c) It demonstrates that “law abiding gun owners” isn't just a talking point, it's reality and public perception is still a factor and respected.
We are currently attempting to fan out across social media with these ideas, as we believe it would serve the second amendment's cause more thoroughly than simply proving that DC 's open carry ban exists.
Support, criticisms and suggestions are welcome.
