Gun activist Adam Kokesh has called for gun owners to join him in an armed march on Washington, D.C. this Forth of July. Initially Kokesh asserted the march would be a peaceful act of civil disobedience. Well, after nearly 5,200 people RSVPed for the event, Kokesh changed his mind. Now he wants July 4th to be a full-scale armed revolt. In his own words…
“A new American revolution is long overdue. This revolution has been brewing in the hearts and minds of the people for many years, but this Independence Day, it shall take a new form as the American Revolutionary Army will march on each state capital to demand that the governors of these 50 states immediately initiate the process of an orderly dissolution of the federal government through secession and reclamation of federally held property.”
Yep. Screw the “peaceful” march. Now Kokesh wants revolution.
Time for a quick civics lesson.
Since Kokesh has called for gun owners to overthrow the government, he and anyone who joins him on his July 4 crusade are guilty of treason. Not only that, since their intent is a violent overthrow of the government, they are also ENEMY COMBATANTS.
This means they lose their rights as citizens and would be tried in military court. Frankly, if any of these assholes tries anything this July 4th, I hope the Army tosses their dumb asses into Gitmo.
