Agree, but this is America, there is no gun control.

Sadly that also applies to the security forces who use weapons first and ask questions later.

Can not use numbers but the difference between a march / rally and a complete encirclement is what ...

Well yeah, I'm sure there are limitations that would prevent that for any group.

You would have to allow for freedom of movement.

Freedom of movement for those inside or those outside? It cuts both ways you know.

If they do not feel the threat they will not seriously think about making changes to policies.

Well think about the civil rights movements.  They were largely peaceful.

What it takes is numbers.

Politicians are whores for votes.  It doesn't really matter what suit they decide to wear that day as long as it will get the vote.

Marijuana was made legal in three states.  Why?  The politicians wanted those voters.  The majority of people wanted it.

Democracy in action...watch it spread....... ;)

For those inside.

Wouldn't that go for everyone.  Think about businesses or private residences.

I think I could call the police if my house was encircled to where I couldn't pull out of the garage.  You have can't trap people.

This is not why the US authorities would stop the encirclement and you know it or you are not as smart as I thought you were.
