Video Appears to Show Libertarian Activist Adam Kokesh Loading Shotgun in Downtown D.C.: DCist:

"The libertarian activist Adam Kokesh ... is seen in a 22-second video loading and then pumping a single-barrel shotgun while standing on Freedom Plaza on Pennsylvania Avenue NW, across from the John A. Wilson Building and a few blocks from the White House. The video is dated July 4, 2013, with the title 'Open Carry March on DC a Success.'

"While loading the gun, Kokesh, 31, recites the last passage of the "Final American Revolution Pledge of Resistance,' a manifesto he posted on his website on Wednesday.

"'We will not be silent,' he says. 'We will not obey. We will not allow our government to destroy our humanity. We are the final' - pausing to pull back the shotgun grip - 'American' - releasing the grip - 'revolution. See you next Independence Day.'

"The Metropolitan Police Department and U.S. Park Police say in a joint statement that they have seen the video and are reviewing it: 'The Metropolitan Police Department and U.S. Park Police are aware that today Adam Kokesh posted a video that appears to have been taken in Freedom Plaza in Northwest, D.C.
