    If it all proves true as reported that's a pretty asinine means of protest.

    Has Brian Ross blamed it on the Tea Party?

    Assault with a deadly weapon is not a "protest", it is a crime. Good thing that DC has such strict handgun laws or the "protester" may have been armed. ;-)

    I'm aware of the criminal nature of the activity. I was responding to the "expressed disagreement with the conservative group's policy positions", which implies protest.

    Which were not even expressed in any coherent way, much like the OWS loons, who just bust stuff up at "strategic" locations. Violent morons are not protesters, they are simply criminals or domestic terrorists. Protestors may make a sign, give a speech or leave leaflets, they rarely have only a weapon and an attitude. ;-)

    Protest can take just about any form.

    Which is one of the reasons why I am against gun control. Once the government takes our guns, only the criminals will have them.

    It couldn't have been a liberal. We're all too pussy to own guns. Remember?
