Adam Kokesh Organizes March With Loaded Weapons in Washington DC
Libertarian radio host Adam Kokesh, who ran unsuccessfully for the Republican nomination for New Mexico’s 3rd Congressional District in 2010, is trying to organize a July 4 march on the nation’s capital by 1,000 people with loaded guns.
“This will be a non-violent event, unless the government chooses to make it violent,” Kokesh wrote on a new Facebook page. “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.”
Kokesh was not available for comment. But he appeared Monday on infowars.com, an Austin, Texas-based radio and Internet program hosted by the gravely voiced, conspiratorially minded, anti-gun-control Alex Jones who praised Kokesh for his “Open Carry March on Washington.”
“I’ve never done it because I am convinced they’ll send in provocateurs and stage something to demonize gun owners,” Jones said.
Kokesh began by calling his proposal “an armed revolt against the American government — make no mistake about it.” He said participants in his planned march would carry loaded rifles and shotguns “slung across their back so their hands are not anywhere near” their weapons as they march from Virginia, where guns can be carried openly, across the Arlington Memorial Bridge into the District of Columbia, where openly-carried guns are generally illegal.

I guess when the revolution comes, it will be Facebooked.
