Oh but these are PEACEFUL means...

I too had some reservations about this march, in that it could be seen as an "aggressive act" to anyone on the left side of the isle who sees guns as inherently violent.

But how can you demonstrate that responsible gun ownership IS non-violent without letting people see responsible gun owners walking about and being peaceful? As long as everyone is respectful and not pumped full of macho redneck bravado, I don't see how this is going to hurt or marginalize us.

And if people do continue to see peaceful gun owners as potential violent extremists, well that's their own ignorant fault, why should be be motivated by what the close minded think of us?
