    Hey if you listened to the left wing press they were predicting (or hoping for) violence. After all it was an AP headline about ending peacefully...

    Sort of like the right wing press predicting that Antifa terrorists was mounting a false flag operation, seven busloads of Antifa dressed as Patriots were going to ignite violence at the rally to make the pro gun side look like evil terrorist. Antifa was paying crisis actors 250 dollars per day, demonstrators, injured victims, and Patriots in tactical gear. The Antifa snipers on top of buildings were apparently not needed! And the Navy is supplying expertise in signal counter intelligence.

    The police planning was successful, the rally went off without a hitch. I wonder if it would have been peaceful without a detailed police response and crowd control plan.

    EGGzackly. Hence, my declaration that peace broke out.

    All of which was very peaceful.

    Well Antifa did show up, but I did not hear that by right wing press (who ever that is). Remember I'm speaking of the main stream press. And BTY if you watched the rally the cops were both out numbered and out gunned, it was peaceful because gun rights advocates are largely law abiding, unlike Antifa.

    But my post does raise the question of whether the rally participants were inherently peaceful, or just peaceful due to the efforts of law enforcement.

    If law enforcement had not made a detailed plan, would the result have been a peaceful rally? Does peace just break out, or does it require significant planning and preparation?

    Again, like I said - if you watched the rally law enforcement was both out numbered and out gunned. They were peaceful because they chose to be peaceful.

    So? I'm not allowed to make an observation?

    If law enforcement had not made a detailed plan, would the result have been a peaceful rally?
    On behalf of the responsible gun owners, absolutely. As to the loony left, that's anybody's guess. You won't see responsible gun owners pooping on police cars, or blocking and trashing the city streets and causing mayhem.

    Does peace just break out, or does it require significant planning and preparation?
    Peace exists in my house and in my church, not because of "significant planning and preparation", but because, like Robert Charles Winthrop said...

    "Men, in a word, must necessarily be controlled, either by a power within them, or by a power without them; either by the word of God, or by the strong arm of man; either by the Bible, or by the bayonet."

    About 85% of the "press" I follow is what many regard as "right-wing," i.e. Fox News. This post is the first time I heard *anything* about those Antifa predictions.

    I have no idea what he's talking about, but I don't watch or listen to Fox News anymore. I mainly scan Drudge and Real Clear Politics.
