Toy Gun March On Washington Draws 2nd Amendment Supporters

07.03.13 02:20 PM

While there’s no sign that remnant supporters of the dubious, now-cancelled* July 4th armed march on Washington, D.C. are coalescing near the capitol with loaded weapons, 2nd Amendment supporters did turn out Wednesday to stage a legal demonstration – using toy guns.

From the “Toy Gun March on DC” Facebook page, the event’s mission is to “communicate the importance of 2nd Amendment rights to the citizens of the District of Columbia.”
The Toy Gun March is a gathering of liberty loving people and their families to promote responsible gun ownership, private charity and to bring public perception of gun owners into a better light.

Due to the fact that it is currently illegal to carry a loaded firearm into the District of Columbia, we liberty lovers have decided to tweak the nose of big government and show Obama what a clown he is for trying to restrict our natural rights. Join us as we march on DC fully armed with toy guns!

“We’re trying to make the point that it’s ridiculous for little kids to be getting in trouble for playing with toy guns and being suspended for things like biting a Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun,” organizer Austin Petersen told The Huffington Post.*“We’re also trying to send the message that gun owners are responsible” and that many, who identify themselves as libertarians, “aren’t all crazy gun nuts.”

The event, which was conceived and staged by Libertarian Republic, also raised money and toy donations for Toys for Tots.

Wednesday’s demonstration did, ultimately, descend into a gun battle – only, at the end, everyone was soaked in water instead of blood, and the “casualties” picked themselves off the capitol grounds and walked away in peace.
