According to David Corn

We are dangerous extremists

Put this all together -- saber rattling, militia fomenting, demonizing government -- and you have a brew of far-right paranoia mixed with guns. When have we seen this before? Oh yeah, Timothy McVeigh and the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. And here's the kicker: this pro-gun march will happen on the 15th anniversary of the Oklahoma tragedy. This is not insensitivity; it's a message.

It is also the 135th anniversary of:

"By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April's breeze unfurled;
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard 'round the world."

Perhaps for Mr. Corn anyone who might stand up for their constitutional rights, is an extremist.

2nd amendment activists are not anti-government, they are pro Constitution, they are simply asking the elected government officials do what they swore they would do and that is up hold the Constitution of the United States of America
