    Apparently this has never been challenged in court... REALLY makes one wonder what the outcome would be. I am wondering what opinion others have on this analysis. Forgive me if this has already been discussed. https://originalintent.org/edu/chapter44.php

    Open Carry Event in Washington DC January 17, 2021?

    A highly-suspect image appeared promoting an "armed march" on the capital. This image appears very poorly done and not by someone of the individual human rights persuasion (more like the communist persuasion)...

    Reach out to MPD?

    I posted this on ICarry, but I'd like to add it to the discussion here as well. It's an idea for discussion, nothing more. The root cause of this incident may be overlooked.
