I think it proves to the gun nuts, & Tea Baggers that you don't need guns to overthrow your government. In fact I don't know of a homegrown revolution in the last 50yrs that was done by armed insurrection. I think Cuba was about the last. When you use violence you allow the government to paint you in their terms. We tried for many years in No. Ireland, but only got somewhere when we put down the guns (even though it's looking like a mistake).
