OATH KEEPERS (OK) have announced that they are retracting from the April 19th 2010 OPEN CARRY RALLY on the VA/DC border.
Well this seems like a good news, right?. Problem is they have a large fraction of followers that consider this statement cowardice. The reason (OK) decided to retract was do to the fact that some members and outside followers published on the web their intent for an armed confrontational stand. That the time for talking was over. That the criminals in D.C. had to answer for their crimes against the Constitution.
They also frimly press members or followers of their movement that still want to attend the rally to please refrain from wearing any clothing, signs or banners depicting (OK). They also admitted they have lost control of the rally they planned. Stating they have advanced knowledge of something so they will not be supporting the rally any longer do to the fact it no longer represents what their mission is.
I am in full support of the 2ND AMENDMENT but this is crazy. There is a sect in this country that is prone to violence and by reading their blogs you can almost hear the battle cries of some of its followers.
Other things that happened on April 19;
Revolutionary war started
Waco Texas seige ended
Oklahoma city bombing
Joseph Ratzinger elected Pope (just for fun)

This is fun to see Bill O. actually making sense even though he contradicts himself. LINK
