D.C. police are investigating libertarian activist and radio host Adam Kokesh after he released a video showing himself loading a shot gun in the middle of Freedom Plaza in Washington.
In the video, Kokesh loads the shot gun four times as he stands in the plaza on Thursday with the Capitol building clearly shown behind him.
“We will not be silent, we will not obey, we will not allow our government to destroy our humanity,” Kokesh says as he loads the gun. “We are, the final, American, revolution. See you next Independence Day.”
Kokesh had been planning a march into Washington of 1,000 gun-toting activists for July 4, but the march was ulitmately canceled. Washington Metropolitan Police had pledged to arrest marchers who planned to openly carry rifles into the city in violation of District law.
