WASHINGTON – They came by the hundreds – armed in Virginia, unarmed in D.C. – to rail against the federal government, convinced their Second Amendment rights to bear arms are in danger under the “socialist” regime currently occupying the White House.

Gun activists descended upon the capital region on a bright, breezy Monday, speaking of war and revolution at “Restore the Constitution” demonstrations as they assailed not just U.S. President Barack Obama, but also the Republican politicians on Capitol Hill for failing to stop what they perceive as a socialist takeover of their country.

“We’re in a war,” Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, told a largely male crowd at the foot of the iconic Washington Monument.

“They are coming for our freedom, for our money, for our kids, for our property. They are coming for everything because they are a bunch of socialists.”

Pratt urged the crowd to organize as the November mid-term elections loom, and work to ensure that only pro-gun politicians get elected while those who advocate gun control are shut out. His pleas came despite the fact that there are no proposals coming from the White House or Congress for new gun control laws.

Another protester shouted to the crowd: “Our right to have a gun doesn’t come from Barack Obama, it comes from God. We have a right to protect our families.”

Many of those in attendance on the National Mall carried replica weapons, but across the Potomac River, at a national park in northern Virginia, about 75 to 100 people were packing the real thing – rifles, pistols and rounds of ammunition under the watchful eye of state and park police. It’s legal to openly carry some weapons in Virginia.
