I think is very bad idea to attend protests armed open carrying and especially carrying rifles.

If you think you may have to defend yourself with a gun, best stay home. But if you go armed, keep your weapon concealed.

The new administration is just looking for ways to reduce 2A rights. And trying to intimidate legislators and government officials by brandishing weapons will only get more restrictions piled on us.

What are you really planning to do with your AR? Shoot a bunch of fellow Americans who disagree with you? I certainly will not do that, and I doubt many DC people will either.

Best cool it and work to retake the Senate and the House in two years and the Presidency on four.;

We've had armed protests that turned into riots for several months now. They have been given empowerment by the socialists who call themselves democrats. They have proven quite effective at destroying things.

No one has been held accountable for what has happened either. The federal LE agencies are largely absent outside of the times President Trump forced them to do specific things.

The difference between an openly armed peaceful prostester and a hostile agitator can be pretty subtle to a good many folks.

Not when the false-flag Antifa show up to turn the peaceful assembly into a riot.

Time to lay low and demonstrate our calm and cool and not provide fodder for the incoming administration. We can wait this out. We must show resolve while keeping the moral high ground. Do not stoop to their level. Someone will always impersonate us and attempt to tarnish our image so be prepared for that. Just don't be part of the problem.

Trouble often comes to those who seek to avoid it.
Wait it out. Well, I suppose that might work. Though there is now talk of "deprogramming" and "re-education". So just be aware of what you are waiting for.

If I'm ever at a protest, I will be armed but the protest will have to come to me cause I'll never go to one.

Ironically, Antifa came out in favor of Lobby Day last year, in a big way. They were pro-2A and anti-Gov. Northam. We had no direct contact with them, but they were there and they behaved.

Trouble more often comes to those who go looking for it. There is talk of a lot of things, most of which will probably not happen. When I was in the military, we only went looking for trouble when we were trained, equipped and organized to wipe it out. Individuals failing about are not effective.

I grew up in Boston. Trouble came to me plenty of times when I was just standing around minding my own business,
So I suppose our experiences have been different.

They're probably in favor of it because they see a golden opportunity to turn Lobby Day into another Capitol fiasco.
Sorry, I was misunderstood. The 22,000+ event we had last year they supported, attended and did not disrupt. They made no move to create a fiasco. I am no fan of Antifa, but I recognize that there is a slight intersection in their interests and ours. They are not tools of the Democrats. I think if anything, the Dems are as scared of them as we are.

Look back and tell me how much credibility anyone would have given ten years ago to the events of the last four years.
