On the morning of July 4, 2013, Independence Day, we will muster at the National Cemetery & at noon we will step off to march across the Memorial Bridge, down Independence Avenue, around the Capitol, the Supreme Court, & the White House, then peacefully return to Virginia across the Memorial Bridge. This is an act of civil disobedience, not a permitted event. We will march with rifles loaded & slung across our backs to put the government on notice that we will not be intimidated & cower in submission to tyranny. We are marching to mark the high water mark of government & to turn the tide. This will be a non-violent event, unless the government chooses to make it violent. Should we meet physical resistance, we will peacefully turn back, having shown that free people are not welcome in Washington, & returning with the resolve that the politicians, bureaucrats, & enforcers of the federal government will not be welcome in the land of the free. There's a remote chance that there will be violence as there has been from government before, and I think it should be clear that if anyone involved in this event is approached respectfully by agents of the state, they will submit to arrest without resisting. We are truly saying in the SUBTLEST way possible that we would rather die on our feet than live on our knees. You are welcome to attend unarmed as a supporter, or armed with a recording device. We especially invite law enforcement officers to stand with us armed however they feel is appropriate. If this page gets to 10,000 attendees by June 1st, & we have the critical mass necessary to pull this off, (1,000 actual attendees) we will march. Please spread the word, share this event, & invite all your friends.

You mean an open carry march on Virginia ? .....Because they aren't getting anywhere near the Capital with guns. We've been through this before. They can have it in Virginia. That's as close as they are getting. You will never see armed open carry rallies anywhere near Washington DC. Not GUNna happen.

No one's going to show up because responsible gun owners realize it's a stupid idea.

The problem is for every responsible gun owner there are 10 irresponsible. If i were too guess id say 500 people show and that 500 are going to be a big problem! Its going to be the ones who do want to start an insurrection. Its going to be the nut cases and people who think that the zombie apocalypse is really going to happen lol. Its going to be every person who shouldn't have a gun showing up to this..
