    Man open carrys a shotgun in D.C.

    I'm all about gun rights, but this guy is crazy. Unless you've been living under a rock I'm sure you have heard about Adam Kokesh's open carry on D.C. He is now being held without bond after the judge told Kokesh's lawyer "I consider your client to be a very dangerous man."

    What, in your opinion, makes him "crazy"?

    My word would be hardcore. That guy's one hardcore activist.

    Kokesh is an idiot. He's too worried about smoking weed to do anything of note as far as being a gun rights activist is concerned.

    He seems determined to throw himself against the rocks.

    Number 1: He is not only open carrying in D.C. but he is brandishing. Both of which are extremely illegal and make responsible gun owners look bad by drawing negative attention to an already under-fire issue (O.C.).

    Number 2: If you read and listen to some of Kokesh's stuff he talks about revolting. We are a democratic people governed by laws. This is not Egypt; we have a democratic process for our elected officials. If he doesn't like the way things are going then he needs to find an alternative way of protesting. Brandishing a shotgun and loading shells into it in the middle of D.C. is not only 100% illegal it is CRAZY.

    Was this Egypt when our founding father's revolted?

    Not too bright in my opinion. If he wanted to carry it to the Virginia DC border to make a point, that is one thing, but this doesn't really do anyone any good

    We revolted against British power...we were still in the process of establishing a constitution and a stable government. Constitution was signed after the war if I remember correctly. Our democratic process, as we know it, was set up after the war.

    I'll admit what he did may not have been the wisest decision......

    I fully support him, though!!!

    And do you recall the purpose of the 2nd Amendment? The belief of the founding fathers that tyrannical governments need be replaced?

    If you recall, our current government is far beyond what the Constitution outlined it to be, and is bordering on tyrannical. Revolt might not be necessary yet, but that's not to say it won't be.

    Honestly, I understand what you are getting at, and I do know the purpose of the 2nd Amendment, but we as a country are not at the "tyranny" stage...yet. I have been to enough middle eastern countries to know what tyranny looks like, and the United States is far from it.

    All he did was pitch a glorified, filmed on YouTube temper tantrum.


    Which is probably going to result in a change of address to South East DC.

    Interesting though that when a liberal reporter David Gregory violates DC's gun laws with a "High Cap" magazine they can let that slide.Looks like selective prosecution to me.
