The U.S. Border Guard deployed an urban combat trained security squad to the Occupy Phoenix rally today as armed peace keepers and legal observers. Border Rangers who patrol the border took a non-political stance to defend peaceful assembly and free speech of all citizens by exercising our right to keep and bear arms. Phoenix Police units were on scene also keeping the peace. Our founding fathers and founding mothers knew full well that the 2nd Amendment is what protects all our other amendments from tyranny. The U.S.B.G. protected the rights of all parties involved.J.T. Ready
Almost everybody I spoke with had something in common with me. I enjoyed speaking with a wide variety of people and even posed for a few pictures. The event was billed as being non-violent and it was. Despite the futile actions of a few provocateurs, there were no confrontations, excessive profanities or violence.
Cooler heads prevailed and the anarchists failed to give this event a black eye by inciting a riot. They also failed to cause division among us and the majority of the attendees.
