Not claiming responsibility for your personal actions, or the group with whom you're involved, seems a natural inclination for those who feel that the government is responsible for their behavior and will have a temper tantrum when they dont get their way.
This trivialization of the Constitution does no one any good over the long term. It is worthy of greater respect.

I entirely agree that those who damage public property should be held accountable for it, but I disagree with the idea of punishing en-masse when a certain individuals actions cannot be proven nor can it be proven he was responsible for any damages. Individual accountability MUST be achieved before I'd support any fines being levied against protestors, it'll be a sad day in America when people can be found guilty by association.
Do I need to explain all the laws that pertain to safety codes, right-of-way and traffic laws, sanitation, insurance bonds ..... etc ?
"I would stay out of the road" does not quite cover it"
Seems you'd like to throw out the rule of law....
"The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees individuals the right of freedom of assembly. Under the common law and modern statutes, however, the meeting of three or more persons may constitute an unlawful assembly if the persons have an illegal purpose or if their meeting will breach the public peace of the community. If they actually execute their purpose, they have committed the criminal offense of riot."

I don't know that me owning my guns costs you anything.How much does gun ownership cost us?
Gun crime does indeed cost society money. Is gun crime part of legal gun ownership to you?We have a lot of gun crime and a lot of legal, medical, and social dynamics which feed into it and cost us all money.
Are you in favor of that...Certainly there would always be some amount of gun crime; but if we took very authoratative measures to remove guns physically we could decrease that number greatly.
If they commit a crime with their gun, absolutely.Do we sue gun owners?
It's been tried I'm sure.Do we sue gun companies?
No, crime and the other costs associated with gun ownership are a consequence of freedom. One which must be borne out if we are to maintain freedom.
And there are consequences for committing gun crimes are there not? This is a horrible analogy.
