He sounds like an honest guy. Wish he did not have to be so apologetic about the magazine charge. There is no evidence he has ever been armed at a public event. Legal gun owners are remarkably responsible people and no threat to the public.
Consider that prosecutors would clear him if he gave them something. They would love to bring RICO charges against Gavin.
Gavin says Proud Boys should just be men's club. But then says ok to provide security. Just shows the ridiculous position democrats are placing people in. Appearing at public rallies is fun, interesting and important. And when you appear, you have to be organized. Otherwise you can easily find yourself in an outnumbered situation.
So yeah, a men's club that advocates for political freedom, personal responsibility, discussion of the world you are growing into - it it natural and good to attend, even organize a protest rally from time to time. Also a great way to recruit new members. And remember, the club is there to help men stay connected and get guidance on focusing their life. The more members the better.
The lay low defense in the face of criminal charges does not work. The conviction and jail time of the guys in NY State is clear evidence of that. To be charged with trespassing at a political rally?? Give me a break. You are trespassing to force the elected leaders to listen to your POV.
