    are packing heat just outside the Capitol today, right?

    They say its not because of the anniversary of Ruby Ridge, Waco and OK,  but we hear the same "no it isn't" just about every year at this time.

      if they are carrying firearms in Washington DC, they are breaking the law and subject to arrest.
      If they are not, you are breaking standards of honesty and slinging lies and bullshit on Daily Kos.
      which is it?

        Daniel Almond, a three-tour veteran of Iraq, is ready to "muster outside D.C." on Monday with several dozen other self-proclaimed patriots, all of them armed. They intend to make history as the first people to take their guns to a demonstration in a national park, and the Virginia rally is deliberately being held just a few miles from the Capitol and the White House.

        Almond plans to have his pistol loaded and openly carried, his rifle unloaded and slung to the rear, a bandoleer of magazines containing ammunition draped over his polo-shirted shoulder.

        "Outside the capitol" here means "outside D.C."

        the Virginia rally is deliberately being held just a few miles from the Capitol and the White House.

        Quite a rogue's row:  

        On the lineup are several heroes of the militia movement, including Mike Vanderboegh, who advocated throwing bricks through the windows of Democrats who voted for the health-care bill; Tom Fernandez, who has established a nationwide call tree to mobilize an armed resistance to any government order to seize firearms; and former Arizona sheriff Richard Mack, who refused to enforce the Brady law and then won a Supreme Court verdict that weakened its background-check provisions.

      is not "just outside."
      Deliberately misleading and alarmist post.

      Virginia and that makes all the difference legally until they step on the federal ground of the park where the weapons are prohibited.  To say that they a "packing heat just outside the Capitol" to me imagines that they are standing on the Capitol steps.  The "Capitol" refers to the actual building that houses our national legislatures, not the DC so to say that heat is being packed just outside the Capitol when the demonstration is in Virginia, a gun happy state, even though the site of one of the most horrific recent acts of violence by a psychotic gunman, is just not accurate.
