Marine vet plans peaceful July 4 armed march into D.C

Libertarian anti-war activist Adam Kokesh seeks 10,000 supporters for "civil disobedience." Police issue warning.

 

  Marine Corps veteran who became a vocal anti-war activist is rounding up armed followers to march peacefully into the nation's capital on Independence Day as "an act of civil disobedience."

Washington police and the U.S. Park Police say they will confront the "open carry" marchers if they step across the border dividing Virginia from the District of Columbia. Washington residents can have registered firearms only on their own property, not in public.
The march is being organized by Adam Kokesh, a former Internet talk radio host who in 2008 disrupted Sen. John McCain's presidential nomination acceptance at the GOP convention because of the nominee's support for the Iraq War.
The avowed libertarian wants to "muster" supporters outside Arlington National Cemetery on July 4 and cross the Potomac River on the Memorial Bridge and then march around the U.S. Capitol, the Supreme Court and the White House "with rifles loaded & slung across our backs."
Kokesh, 31, is seeking a "critical mass" of 10,000 marchers by June 1. As of Tuesday, about 3,000 people had signed up.

I am shocked, but not really.  After watching Olympus Has Fallen...I made a mental note that the invasion started on July 5th.

This cannot possibly go down peacefully, and I would say that something major will be the result of the march.
