Adam Kokesh, a 31 year old former US Marine, will be held without bond until his trial on gun charges begins on August 13th.

Kokesh is charged with one count of openly carrying a firearm, which is a violation of the District of Columbia’s firearms laws. The incident, on Freedom Plaza on July 4th, allegedly saw Kokesh loading four rounds into a shotgun. Freedom Plaza is just a short distance from the White House.

“We will not be silent. We will not obey. We will not allow our government to destroy our humanity,We are the final American revolution. See you next Independence Day.” He said in a video made on the same day.

There is a maximum penalty of  a $5000 fine and five years in jail for openly carrying a gun outside of a home or business in Washington.

A police raid on Kokesh’s home on July 9th found hallucinogenic mushrooms for which he also faces charges, and 10 guns, including the one used in the video.

Supporters raised the $5000 bond which saw him released from Fairfax jail where he was being held on the drug charges but he was almost immediately re-arrested on the firearms charges.

DC Superior Court judge Frederick Sullivan refused to free Kokesh on bond saying:

“I consider your client to be a very dangerous man. This is not a political statement.” (source)

    Why do you think the DHS listed veterans as terrorists? Because we have seen the crime coming from Washington DC first hand. We know better and we are tired of seeing American rights that we supposedly fought for, stolen away.

    DC has been taken over by criminals who are well paid and never put their lives on the line for anything.
