March Madness

Following up on yesterday’s post about the folks who plan on marching into Washington, D.C. on the Fourth of July carrying guns:

The District of Columbia’s police chief said Tuesday officers would arrest marchers who plan to openly carry rifles into the city in violation of District law.

“Passing into the District of Columbia with loaded firearms is a violation of the law and we’ll have to treat it as such,” Metropolitan Police Department Chief Cathy Lanier said…

As commenter Lobotomy noted, this march is a win-win for the gun nuts.  They get arrested, TYRANNY REIGNS! and their point is proved.  If they get ignored, then they will say that they scared the evil government into submission.  FREEDOM!

It’s not about guns, it’s not about the law, it’s about getting their message on TV and rolling around in their fifteen minutes.  The problem is that all it takes is one person to go over the edge and start shooting, and then you have a silly pecker contest turned into a brawl and people getting injured or killed.
