A peaceful protest converged on the World War II Memorial on the National Mall today, Sunday morning. Members of the so-called “Million Vet March” descended on Washington, D.C. (becoming known as the District of Corruption), to protest the Obama administration’s decision to close the city’s public memorials.
The ‘Barrycades’ are down according to WTOP, 103.5 FM and the crowd chanted “Tear down these walls!” and sang “God Bless America” as well as other patriotic songs as they entered the memorial, which has been closed since the government shutdown that began Oct. 1st.
The police showed up in riot gear amid angry shouts from the protesters –
“You are public servants
You took an oath
You work for us!
Protect the people
We’re Americans in a peaceful protest
Just how far are they going to push us? And just how much can we stomach?

“God created men and women in all sizes, but it was Samuel Colt who made them all equal.”
Standing up to Piers Morgan and standing up for your 2nd Amendment rights.
You Go Ted!
How your 2nd Amendment Rights are being squeezed:
- The Supreme Court decisions: D.C. v. Heller & McDonald v. Chicago have since been interpreted as only the right to possess a firearm inside one’s home.
- Foot dragging by the Senate on passing the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act which would treat concealed carry licenses like driver’s licenses across state lines.
- The continuing support by the Obama administration in support of an UN Arms Trade Treaty.
- The ACLU’s position that the 2nd Amendment Right is a collective right rather than an individual right and subject to limitations and removal by Congress or other legislative bodies.
- More and more onerous taxes, registration requirements and fees to license and register guns.
- Some cities bans on firing ranges, gun shops within city limits, etc.
- Confiscation of guns by police (Aug 30, 2005, the day after Katrina hit the Gulf Coast)
- Limits on the number of guns residents can buy
