Comment: I agree with this protest in spirit

I agree with this protest in spirit

But I think it is a bad idea. The reason being that this protest essentially consists of the gathering of 1000-1500 armed individuals who are not familiar with each other and putting them in a situation where they are directly confronting an opposing armed force that is there to disarm them. There are way too many variables and if this turns bloody it will turn public opinion against the 2nd amendment.
The smarter way to go about this would be to do it with a well-organized, disciplined militia. That is more in the spirit of the original intent of the 2nd amendment and you could have some hope of maintaining rational restraint if things get hairy.
