Veterans Remove Memorial Barricades – Dump Them in Front of White House – Snipers Take Positions on WH Roof
This one isn’t gun related (unless you count the snipers sitting on top of the White House), but we just a love a good story of liberty.
Twitchy, the conservartive Twitter monitoring site, is reporting that veterans marching in Washington, DC are removing barricades from memorials closed due to the government shutdown, and are taking them and dumping them in front of the White House.
A crowd is gathering in front of the White House and shouting at the president.
According to video reports from the scene, snipers have gathered on top of the White House and are facing the direction of the protestors.
According to the Washington Times,
Senators Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) as well as former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin were among the crowd that chanted “Tear down these walls” and sang patriotic songs as the barriers were removed according to local news coverage from WTOP.
About 15 tractor trailer trucks from the Ride for the Constitution protest, which took place two days ago but mostly turned out to be a non-event, have arrived at the memorial protest to lend their support to the veterans.
Here is a photo of some protestors removing barricades and taking them to the White House.
