First Connecticut, and then New York passed gun control laws this year – that many people believe are unconstitutional – turninghundreds of thousands of AR-15 owners into felons simply for not registering their guns. Now, Washington state gun owners intend to take things to a new level in response to Washington’s new gun control law. At least 5,500 are planning to openly violate the heavy-handed law, I-594, during a rally at the state capitol in Olympia on December 13th. The law goes into effect on December 4th, after the Secretary of State certifies the election results. Not a single so-called mainstream media source has mentioned the unprecedented event, even though RSVPs continue to increase every day.

This is practically unheard of in the modern era; not only will 5,500 people deliberately violate the law through civil disobedience, but will violate felony gun laws. Washington is one of few remaining blue states that has remained friendly to gun owners, and so gun owners are furious that a handful of billionaires were able to come in and buy the election, contributing about half the $10 million poured into the race to support I-594, almost 10 times as much as the opposition. Unsuccessful at getting the legislature to pass the law, gun control proponents resorted to billionaires to push it through instead as an initiative. Their money provided the resources to afford to run continuous misleading ads on TV.

The Facebook pagefor “I-594 I Will Not Comply” states, “We will rally at the capitol, openly exchange guns, unveil and plan to break apart the entire legislation and violate I-594 in every possible way We will buy and sell guns from whom we please, we will not submit to background checks, we will not give up our rights, WE WILL NOT comply.”

Under I-594, transferring a gun to someone in most situations – such as loaning your gun to a family member or friend at the range – will constitute a felony. Most gun owners have transferred their gun at one point to a friend or relative to try shooting. One-third of Washington state residents are gun owners. Considering the population of Washington is about 7 million, that means as many as 2.3 million gun owners could now be felons for doing what they have commonly done in the past. And that is only the tip of the iceberg; the 18-page law contains many other poorly written, vague and onerous restrictions, too many to list here.

The number of RSVPs for the protest is stunning. A rally against I-594 that took place in downtown Seattle last month only attracted around 300 people.

What are the police going to do if 5,500 gun owners all commit felonies transferring their guns to each other at once? It would be impossible to try and arrest all 5,500. Rank and file law enforcement opposes I-594, as do more than two-thirds of the elected county sheriffs in Washington. A recent candidate for Yakima County Sheriff is helping set up the rally.

The point of the rally is to show that the law is so ridiculous, burdensome and convoluted that it is unenforceable. Unlike much prior civil disobedience, the protest will be nonviolent, and there is no reason to believe otherwise. At the rally against I-594 in downtown Seattle last month, where most protesters came armed, the only law enforcement agent visible who showed up to monitor the event was a Washington Park Ranger who was unarmed. This is because gun owners are some of the most law-abiding people in the country, and law enforcement knows this. The fact they have been provoked to civil disobedience – felony civil disobedience – is very disturbing.

Hungry with the taste of victory, gun control advocates in Washington are now moving on to get more legislation passed that will ban assault weapons, require trigger locks, and more infringements upon the Second Amendment.

Fortunately, opponents such as Washington’s Second Amendment Foundation, and likely the NRA as well, are intending to file a lawsuit to challenge I-594, and will be lobbying the legislature to change or rescind it.

Pro-life protestors had planned to put a JumboTron outside the Alamo with abortion images on it, but the City of San Antonio shut down the protest Wednesday morning. Demonstrators said it’s a violation of their First Amendment rights.

Protestors have put up a JumboTron with abortion images in other cities already and Love of Truth ministries said they cleared a permit with the City of San Antonio to do so a month ago. It wasn’t until Tuesday night that the City said the demonstration violates a sign ordinance.

“Part of the permit, which would have enabled them to put a JumboTron on the plaza, was revoked this morning,” said San Antonio Police Chief William McManus.

“If we were going to preform abortion today the city would allow that, cause that’s legal, but showing it, somehow they’re finding a way to find that against the law,” said Mark Harrington, national director of Created Equal that was co-hosting the protest.

Harrington said now his organization has two causes to fight for; the end of abortion and first amendment rights.

“Unpopular speech is the reason the First Amendment was written to begin with. It protects disturbing, unpopular, offensive speech,” said Harrington.

Several people visiting the Alamo Wednesday said they had differing opinions on whether the JumboTron should be allowed.

“When people don’t have the choice whether to see those images or not, I don’t think that’s right,” said Shannon Thomas who was at the Alamo Wednesday.

“I think they should be allowed to do what they were permitted for, and I think it’s just the government trying to squelch anything that has to do with religion, or anything faith based,” said Ava Tanner who was also visiting the Alamo.

“I don’t necessarily agree with their tactics, but I do believe that to a certain extent it’s protected by the First Amendment,” said Lyndon Lee, another Alamo visitor.

Last week, New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly went to Brown University to give a lecture on Proactive Policing in Americas Biggest City. He was met by more than 100 students and community activists who disrupted the meeting to the point that it had to be canceled. This type of behavior is in direct contradiction to the idea of free speech that is supposed to be found on college campuses. More importantly, this behavior is also illegal. Upset by the surveillance of Muslims and of the use of stop-and-frisk practices by the NYPD, the protestors conspired to prevent Commissioner Kelly from exercising his right to free speech and also prevented open-minded audience members from hearing what he had to say. Im not going to debate whether or not the protestors grievances were justified, as I would rather elucidate the multiple legal implications of their actions. When Brown officials asked protesters to allow Kelly to speak and reserve their comments until a question-and-answer session, the protestors refused. Brown student and protest organizer Jenny Li called this disobedience a powerful demonstration of free speech. This couldnt be further from the truth, as shouting down someone else is not a legitimate use of free speech. Ms. Li seemed to acknowledge this, apparently without realizing she was contradicting herself, when she said about the administrations decision to continue the lecture, We decided to cancel [the lecture] for them. Brown University President Christina Paxson was right in saying, The conduct of disruptive members of the audience is indefensible and an affront both to civil democratic society and to the universitys core values. Brown isnt the first university to be faced with this problem, though. A similar incident occurred at UC-Irvine in 2010, resulting in 10 students being convicted of conspiring to disturb and disrupt a meeting and speech, which is a misdemeanor in California under Penal Code 403. Rhode Island has a similar law that could be applied in the Brown case, as well as a lesser charge of disorderly conduct. At one point in the protest, a relatively large protestor acted aggressively and in a threatening manner toward a female administrator when asked to please stop shouting. This threatening and tumultuous behavior could warrant charging him with disorderly conduct pursuant to Rhode Island Penal Code 11-45-1. However, the sentence for this crime is not to exceed six months imprisonment, so it may send a better message to hit him, and every other disruptive protestor, with the charge of disrupting the meeting. Technically, the charge would be disturbance of public assemblies generally ( 11-11-1). This charge carries with it a maximum sentence of one year imprisonment. The egregious nature of the protestors actions warrant a harsher penalty in my opinion, so this is the path I would pursue. Furthermore, if one watches the video of the ordeal, it is obvious that the disruptions were planned as a group and well in advance, with numerous protestors reading scripted material in a predetermined order. The routine was choreographed by the protest organizers, one of whom is known to be the aforementioned Ms. Li. Since every person who shall conspire with another to commit an offense punishable under the laws of this state shall be subject to the same fine and imprisonment, many of the protestors not directly guilty of the crimes listed above could be charged with conspiring to disturb a public assembly, thus earning them the same sentence of one year imprisonment ( 11-1-6). As I have shown, there are ways to deal with criminal dissident elements in both the student body and the community, so why hasnt the District Attorney in Providence charged anyone yet? Radicals cannot be allowed to shutdown meetings, discussions and other forums promoting dialogue merely because they are opposed to a certain policy, person, or country. Free speech is not allowed to flourish in this type of environment, where anarchists terrorize authority figures trying to ensure respectful dialogue. It would be a shame if these criminals went unpunished for their actions. Ondo is a member of the class of 2014.

On Friday the march for peace and justice that happens every week at 5 pm decided to march to City Hall and to exercise their free speech rights. Due to a wedding in progress, in the building, the peace group respected the request to move further away and headed back to Pioneer Square. This was filmed in Portland Oregon on January 4 2008. One man in his car honks his horn for 30 seconds as the protest goes by then gets out to tell me he did it to “drown them out”??..yet he said he “Wants Peace”???

The unprecedented wave of “blackouts” and other forms of protest that swept the web on Wednesday was designed to call attention to legislation that critics contend will stifle free speech. But the dramatic move sparked debate over whether the protest itself was appropriate for websites that are often themselves arbiters of free speech online.

27-11-2011 22:07 So, basically, if you happen upon a group of people with signs, and you decide that you like what they are saying and wish to join in the protest, you don’t technically get your full 3 hours of free speech per unspecified amount of time. I wasn’t messing around when I said I had never met some of the people who joined us. One of them saw that we were evicted from the Capitol yesterday, and showed up at the very end of our allotted 3 hours of free speech time, and was told she was part of our “event” and that she would be ticketed and could risk arrest if she didn’t leave
