UT: Gun rally smacked of fascism

People openly carried guns, even assault rifles, to the recent gun rally at the Capitol. The reason for brandishing guns is hard to fathom. The purpose for holding a rally is to make a statement, a democratic way of clarifying a group’s position on an issue. The question, then, to the armed participants is: What exactly did you have in mind? What is the unarmed citizen to think? Are the guns meant to intimidate, to bully the majority? That’s not democracy, that’s fascism.
|Oh, MY! FASCISM!
This Henny Penny characterization is ridiculous.
Look up the word "brandish."
Definition of brandish (verb)
1: to shake or wave (something, such as a weapon) menacingly
"brandished a knife at them"
Had anyone actually "brandished" a weapon they would have been arrested, as they should be.
But no one was arrested, because no one "brandished" a weapon.
Go find a "safe space," snowflake. The real world is not so insular.
