Independence Day in Washington, D.C. may see bigger fireworks if the "Open Carry March" put forth by a Marine veteran turned libertarian activist actually goes forward.
Adam Kokesh, 31, is planning a July 4 rally of pro-gun activists openly carrying rifles from Virginia to Washington as an act of "civil disobedience." The plan, according to his Facebook event page, is to march across Memorial Bridge with rifles loaded and slung across the back "to put the government on notice that we will not be intimidated [and] cower in submission to tyranny."
The invite continues, stating, " ... This will be a non-violent event, unless the government chooses to make it violent."
