    I have no problem with civil protests. I have major problems with assholes making nuisances of themselves and annoying, inconveniencing, or preventing others from engaging in lawful business.
    Touche' My perspective exactly.

    Just watched the videos Graffias posted (post 156) and cried a little bit watching the police put handcuffs on a 13 yo who was not resisting in any way. Reminds me so much of the 1960s and the civil rights marches - especially how the police are acting. I hope some of the videos end up in court as evidence in lawsuits against the NYPD.

    As for those urging people to take up arms. That sort of thinking resulted in a lot of unnecessary injuries and deaths in the 1960s and I have no doubt the result would be the same today.

    The First Amendment protects the right of free speech and assembly as well as to petition for grievances. I suspect your copy of the Constitution has that in it.

    yeah and if you assemble in the right of way you are going to get arrested

    if you assemble in the middle of giants stadium during a game you are probably going to get arrested after having the crap kicked out of you

    and if some people decide to assemble in my home in the middle of the night I suspect they are going to become extinct rather quickly

    and that doesn't violate the constitution

    Nope, I suspect people who have no use for left wing troublemakers would use those assholes pulling guns as an excuse to chop them down like firewood

    Did I miss the part about these protesters assembling in Giant stadium or in your home? Where did that enter into this story? What post was that reported in?

    Because of their lifelong superior training and extensive knowledge of weapons.... right?

    And who said anything about people pulling guns? It was you who begun wild speculation and hoping that this would lead to a mass armament of people in the hopes fear of getting shot would teach people some lessons that you felt they needed. I simply asked a question since you mentioned what you termed "assholes" and I thought you were identifying the Wall street worshippers of mammon.
