I understand but we still have the common law right to do that. A still standing SCOTUS decision Bad Elk vs US. Justice Sanders dissent in Valentine vs City of Spokane, is a great read on this right.
Why don't we advocate this? Is it because the system has become such a violent force of coercion it does no good? Is it because we believe we are the subjects of the system and must submit to the actions of it's street warriors? Is it because we feel things will get worked out in court?...........? To me all these point to how wrong the system has become and strayed from protecting liberty to enforcing tyranny.
P.S. not advocating just discussing what is wrong with the monopolization of force into the government which is contrary to the whole idea behind the RKBA.
I have another question for those so upset with this march which can simply be an exercise of 1st amendment. (Much like nude protests have been ruled exercise of free speech even though they are contrary to indecency laws)
What are we going to do on the 5th if things do get out of hand? Who's side are we going to be on?
I wouldn't advocate resisting a bad arrest, because you will not win.
They will call for backup, you'll be tazed, OC'ed, possibly shot, and in the end they will still take you to jail.
That might make me a pansy, but that's what I see happening.
As far as what to do if the rally gets out of hand, that depends on exactly what happens, I'll be paying attention and hoping for a good outcome.
