Default Counter protests?

I passed a "no gun violence" candlelight vigil last night on Stevens Creek and Winchester in the SF South bay last night. It was all I could do to not put on my NRA hat and go back with my own sign.

Is a quick reaction counter protest mechanism something we should consider? Think "pro 2A flash mob" kind of thing.

Well, don't we agree that we don't want gun violence either? I say join them with signs like" no more gun violence, put the focus on the CRIMINALS not the guns". Let's be part of the effort with our reasoned solutions.

After some quiet contemplation that is kind of the approach I thought about. Join the protest with NRA hat with a sign that said something like "help the mentally ill", "stop violence in all forms" or something that isn't confrontational but coopts the demonstration and illustrates that truth that us gun owners abhore violence also.

A buddy suggested that we get a group of gun owners to show up and join the protest as "guards". Telling them while we disagree with our point of view we will defend your right to express it. And then provide security for their demonstration. Interesting idea for sure
