This will end well

Salon’s Alex Seitz-Wald reports that a libertarian activist is organizing a march on Washington consisting of gun nuts illegally carrying loaded rifles:

Libertarian activist and radio host Adam Kokesh is hoping to get 1,000 people to march on Washington on July 4 — armed with loaded rifles. The plan, launched with a Facebook group today, is to gather on the Virginia side of the Potomac, where gun laws are lax, and then march across the bridge with loaded rifles slung over their shoulders into the District, where openly carrying weapons is generally prohibited.

What could possibly go wrong?
