Why would gun rights advocates make such a disproportionate show of force? Because they are a bunch of dickless bullies, that's why. I'm not saying all gun rights advocates are dickless bullies, or even most—a lot of them aren't bullies, and some of them even have dicks. But understand that the implicit threat in actions like this is that should they lose at the ballot box and in the courts, they'll just shoot us. That's their Plan B.
