We do need to make sure that our State reps know that we want them to resist any efforts from Washington, to infringe on our 2A rights, but I don’t believe showing up enmass, carrying AR-15s will help accomplish our goal. JMHO
Our "representatives" have stopped representing us long ago. So what do we do if they don't listen to our peaceful protests and continue to violate our rights? Where do we draw the line? Because that is where we are at.
Agree.

America has reached the point where it cannot continue forward. The country's decay will only get worse.

Our best peaceful chance is a constitutional convention of the states the limit federal powers and term limits to drain the swamp. Beyond that, I fear there are only non peaceful means left. With 70% of the Trump supporters and 40% of Biden supporters believing a civil war is coming, we are not alone in these thoughts.

I firmly believe this is a trap and there will be embedded agents to start a riot. My logic on this is that the only place I have seen any mention of this planned protest is in leaked FBI messages being posted on Facebook and in some news media reports. The only "flyer" I have seen about the protest is in one post made by a cousin of mine in Georgia and he is a diehard socialist that was making fun of the idea.

I know I am not the most connected person to protest groups, but if those are the only places that know about this, it is being set up and they leaked it deliberately as a trap.

Biden and the Democrats are exploiting last Wednesday’s incident at the Capitol to crack down on anyone who isn’t on board the Biden train.

Biden plans to advance a law against “domestic terrorism” to “fight against ideologically inspired violent extremists and increasing funding to combat them.” Doubtful he is referring to the likes of BLM and AntiFa.

Biden will soon label anyone who voted for Donald Trump a “violent extremist.” His law will be used as a pretense to silence and punish political opponents.

So much for "America United". You can only be part of the "together" if you submit and conform.

How many people that were merely "there" in D.C. at the rally or protest, but didn't enter and capital buildings or participate in any criminal activity have lost their jobs? Seems like they are being terminated with the excuse that their mere presence was enough. And some business owners have faced extreme backlash from the public when discovered.

I hadn't heard about this protest before this thread and don't plan on going anyway. Plus, I like and need my job.

Yes, sir, I agree 100%. My fear is that one group that liked to go to restaurants with their ARs a while back will be the blockheads who show up, trying to act all tough and the like...and the agents provocateur in the crowd will have little trouble whipping up that type of crowd. Irritates the blazes out of me.

We should, in my opinion, continue to be very vocal about denouncing any sort of armed protest. Our guns are there to defend and to protect. They should not be used to threaten or intimidate in any shape or form. Doing so will do nothing to expend our Rights. It will only serve to further denigrate the Rights we still have. Resist the provocateurs on all sides.

Agreed. There will be a time for armed resistance. The mass gatherings organized by the left and right cucks are not the place to be.
I am bitter clinging, irredeemable, deplorable, an enemy of the state and a Neanderthal, according to the left.

Yes Sir. You do no good to your Family or your Country incarcerated or dead. There’s time and place for everything.

It's a good idea to keep activism confined to one topic at a time.

Any time guns are visible, or even hinted at, that will be the only thing covered by the news, and the real reason for the protest will be buried. If it's a gun rights protest, sure: carry, legally. If it's not, then don't turn it into a gun event.

Heck, even when they're not visible or even present, it can become about guns. I had someone swear to me the other day that the DC protest was full of men in trucks waving guns around. I assured her it didn't happen, and there had not been a single report of a firearm in DC. "But I saw it!"

Okay... I'm not going to tell you what you saw, but I guarantee you that what you saw didn't happen in DC.
What do I miss about Texas? Most of the food, some of the people, absolutely none of the weather.
