Fighting to the death is a last resort, not a way to progress. If you have to fight and die then so be it, but only after every other course of action has failed.

I always wonder why more people don't bring firearms to rallies and protest... if the people were holding AR15's I think the police would think twice before they bash peoples skulls in with clubs and shields.
Take the London protest. How far would the police have gotten when they faced several thousand armed, angry people?
Protect your freedoms, or the fascist take it by force...

About a dozen people carrying guns, including one with a military-style rifle, milled among protesters outside the convention center where President Barack Obama was giving a speech Monday—the latest incidents in which protesters have openly displayed firearms near the president.
Phoenix police said the gun-toters at Monday's event, including the man carrying an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle slung over his shoulder, didn't need permits. No crimes were committed, and no one was arrested.
The man with the rifle declined to be identified but told The Arizona Republic that he was carrying the assault weapon because he could. "In Arizona, I still have some freedoms," he said.
Phoenix police Detective J. Oliver, who was monitoring the man at the downtown protest, said police also wanted to make sure no one decided to harm him.
"Just by his presence and people seeing the rifle and people knowing the president was in town, it sparked a lot of emotions," Oliver said. "We were keeping peace on both ends."
"It's a political statement," he told The Boston Globe. "If you don't use your rights, then you lose your rights."
More people using their rights while they still have them.
Excellent, it gets the point across and possible wakes more sheep up.

Beware of agents provocateurs. And i really mean that.
You may not fire the first shot but some state-puppet will, dressed as "protester", then the SHTF

As long as gun owners like myself act responsibly and act within the law; I can see it as a proper demonstration as per the constitution.
But what will be the result when some drunk, medicated or very angry gun owner decides to let off a few rounds just to make a point? Eventually we all know this will happen. What then? How will the cops react? The secret service?

It's only a matter of time before one of these people takes a shot at Obama. That's what happens when republicans lie to their delusional supporters. These people want to murder the president, they don't care about their rights they just don't want a black president. If this isn't about race then why didn't you gun lovers bring all your guns when Bush was in town?

I don't think you have been to many protest rallys. Me and my friends always used to combine alcohol and ***. Rallys are as much a social event as political. Great places to meet women.
