I don't believe Out of State armed militias should be allowed to protest (or act as bodyguards for protesters) for local state issues.  National issues, maybe.  But if the protesters are protesting against local elected officials, doesn't the presence of out of staters, particularly armed ones, present a false level of state support or objections to a issue?

I don’t even understand this. Are the gun toting militias liberals or conservatives? Guns for hire? Mercenaries?

They are mostly anti-government who call themselves constitutionalists.  Seldom liberals.  But what does that matter?   My question is should armed people be allowed to protest a state issue if they do not live in that state?

That is what I’m asking. Are the protestors armed or the people stopping them?

The protestors.  And law enforcement are armed if required to stop the armed protestors.

The Constitution places no restrictions on WHERE people can assemble.
