Trump Supporters Rally In Downtown Atlanta With Semi-Automatic Weapons

Tyler Durden's picture

As Trump was preparing to address an audience in Florida on Saturday afternoon, in a speech which Reuters summarized as "returning to the campaign trail to attack the media again and tout his accomplishments in the friendly atmosphere of a rally with supporters", a group of supporters gathered for a pro-President Trump rally in downtown Atlanta armed with semi-automatic weapons.

The crowd met at Centennial Olympic Park. Those there told Channel 2 Action News that they are part of an area militia group, III% Security Force, which was also serving as security for the event.

As WSB-TV reports, members of the militia group said they were there to protect President Trump supporters. 

"We're using our second amendment rights to protect the first amendment rights," Chris Hill said.

"Throughout the day we're going to have more people, more Trump supporters come to this corner, showing their support for President Trump. We are going to make sure that these people are safe and have the right to have their voices heard without fear of violence or intimidation from any opposing groups." 

Hill said he has seen counter-protesters circling the block, but he and his group want to make sure things stay peaceful. 

"We want to make it known that this is a peaceful event and we're going to do everything in our power to make sure that remains the case," he said. Hill said he expected 20 to 30 people to show up for the rally. He said a permit is required if there are more than 35 people, but he did not think that would be the case.

There were no reports of any confrontations or violence during the rally.

In an interview on its website with one of its founding members, the "Three Percenter" militia explains that it is "is comprised of men and women as citizens in esch state which come together to form a chapter.  Each chapter is classified as being part of the “Unorganized Militia,” we are officially a civilian volunteer organization.

We will come to the defense of public and private property, lives, and liberty to exercise God-given rights, seen plainly in the laws of Nature, and codified in the Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights.

 

All local laws (not in violation of the U.S. Constitution and/or State Constitutions) shall be observed by members of III%SF. Each and every member and personnel within III%SF shall always conduct himself/herself with professional aptitude, integrity, and respect of others at all times. III%SF and its members shall not and will not ever cause or create any attempt to attack or overthrow any local, state, or federal department. We will never advocate or promote violence towards any organizations, groups, or persons.

 

GSF III% has a zero tolerance policy regarding racial discrimination.  The Constitution says a militia is necessary for the security of the free state.  The State of Georgia says  the militia is comprised of all males between 17 and 45 and physically capable of acting in our common defense.

A video showcasing the group is shown below.

Hats off to these guys.  That takes serious balls as I'm sure they are well aware that they are now on every list.

Sounds semi-stupid and counter productive to 2nd Amd in the long run. Smell a rat, or three stooges. Good boots and a little spray would have done the trick. What dummy gets a good line of fire in close qtrs with semi-autos in a crowded area?, a fucking idiot.

LetThemEatRand's picture

I would think the same thing without more information, but I read their mission statement as quoted in the article and it is beyond reproach.  Fuck the snowflakes and their aversion to individuals armed with personal weapons while the same snowflakes applaud Obama droning wedding parties with hellfire missiles.

Semi-Auto weapons. You mean open carry? Yawn.

What a contrast...

A few weeks ago you had anti-Trump people literally dressed up as pussies in Washington.

Here, pro-Trump people march loaded with semi-automatics.

Which side are you on Mr & Mrs. America?

Nice to see that people are finally starting to understand the situation better.

I guess those masked soros thugs thought twice before they attacked or spit on these patriots.

More power to these guys.

They should probably read up on how to defeat facial recognition https://www.google.com/#q=how+to+defeat+facial+recognition

dogismycopilot's picture

open carry with a mask is illegal. 

for that matter, 'protesting' with a mask is illegal.

these guys are real patriots. 

they are off the couch and doing something.

3-guys is a fire team. 

I wouldn't fuck with them.

Rakshas's picture

I hear what you're saying there dog, but imagine if you would a patriot that identifies as a trans-gender-islamic-jihadi with religious disassociative disorder......... would a burka be considered a mask in the new distopia??  

 

 

 

Warthog777's picture

No, but he would be considered mentally unstable and his 2nd ammendment rights would be taken,,,,,

TruxtonSpangler's picture

You havent studied facial recognition. You dont need a mask to defeat it.

Ballin D's picture

Step 1, don't use Google to search how to defeat facial recognition

TruxtonSpangler's picture

If enough people do it, hide in the noise.

Sonny Brakes's picture

I contend that the clown epidemic is pushback related to facial recognition and the surveillance state.

“There were no reports of any confrontations or violence during the rally.”

So the leftists don’t have a pair, or what?

Oh, maybe they worry these guys would actually defend themselves.

I'm making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do... http://bit.ly/2jdTzrM

Too old for new labels. And foofy haircuts and skinny jeans.

Those are called man buns, not foofy haircuts, and they were conspicuously absent from the 3 percenters.

JohnG's picture

Perhaps....

I live in GA.  GA law does not provide for legal open carry.

We have weapons carry permits, but there is no provision for unconcealed carry.  Handguns are of course easily concealed, but long guns must be cased.

These guys were all risking arrest, which is stupid.......

Still, good on them, although I am not sonvinced that these particular guys are anything more than showboats.

Whatever.

FEDbuster's picture

Would be nice to see a couple of local law enforcement officers provide security for Trump supporters.

Tristan Ludlow's picture

Say that again!  Do you know if those guys have a permit?  If not, then you cannot say it is illegal.  That is what happens to the MSM.  Fake news, becasue they are so motivated to find fault that they don't do proper fact checking. 

 

"Georgia is not a traditional open carry state. However, open carry IS legal with aGeorgia permit. It is also worthy of note that you MAY openly carry a firearm without a permit in a motor vehicle."

dumbhandle's picture

Can you please show us what part if the Georgia code requires long guns to be cased?  I think you may be incorrect, because there have been recent armed rallies with no arrests for open carry of long guns.

nonutn's picture

Yep, lot of idiots out there who don't understand a S&W 38 Special is a semi-automatic gun.

dumbhandle's picture

Maybe you are referring to 38 super, which is rimless semi.  38 special are rimmed and not for semis.

I asked them if I could bring my BB gun but they said No.

Fine, nobodys going to read it, might as well turn in your shit now. Hey, try putting a link up if you feel that strongly, or at least the name of the group without having to scroll up. Nobody likes looking for shit and nobody will go check it

Victory is no excuse for stupidity. This is typical dumb-ass PR. This is how the revolution will be lost during 2017.

LetThemEatRand's picture

I read it in the time it took me to post, and I was the first poster.   I don't get your point.

Pandering doesn't work and it doesn't help any cause other than the one to which you are pandering.  I applaud these guys for taking a stand and making their valid point.

IntercoursetheEU's picture

Here's how to post a link dumb-ass: http://www.iiisecurityforce.com/about.html and personally, I hope the cops flatten them if they raise those muzzles. Only a poser would bring that kind of hardware into a crowded area. Second Amd Supporter, but no sympathy for idiots.

LetThemEatRand's picture

I'm sorry, but you're not a Second Amendment supporter if you think there is something inherently wrong with showing your weapon in an environment where it is perfectly legal to do so.

PS what does the military do on a daily fucking basis around the world?  And why do you think they do it?

IntercoursetheEU's picture

Bonehead moves like this could change all that in an instant. Wrong tools for the job and a step back for the 2nd Amd in GA. Watch what happens tomorrow.

 

jmack's picture

it is a stark statement that the 2nd amendment is necessary to retain the first amendment.  no one was pepper spraying or fire bombing these guys.  California has disarmed itself, and thus bands of thugs rob them of their first amendment rights.    California thinks it is progressive, but it is regressive.  Well on its way to a totalitarian state.

IntercoursetheEU's picture

While sympathizing on the political side, anyone who thinks civilians can stand up in tactical battle against law enforcement is deceiving themselves and running a fools errand. It's a nonsensical position to take. California has been the land of nuts since the 1800s and guns don't have that much to do with it these days

LetThemEatRand's picture

"Civilians."

Law enforcement works for civilians.  That's kind of the point.  To protect and serve.  The fact that the bosses (civilians) need to worry about brandishing guns around their gun brandishing employees (law enforcement) says it all.

I don't know who said it, but: When the government fears the people you have democracy. When the people fear government you have tyranny. I know who I am afraid of most.

A few hundred thousand vets might disagree with your POV.

Fighting for your natural rights versus fighting for a paycheck and a chance to be grossly second-guessed by your bosses in the courts?  I already know how it would turn out.

Depending on where you are, half of them are on our side anyway.

Squid-puppets a-go-go's picture

its not about having na tactical stand off with law enforcement. Its about ensuring the other side knows there will be a greater potential cost for being thugs
