Arm the Occupy Movement

I remember in the 60s how frightened folks were when they saw armed blacks walking the streets to police the police. I think it would be provocative to have all the occupy folk buy guns and wear them visibly when they next occupy Wall Street. Guns scare me. I would like to scare those who think guns are the solution to violence but don't think I could follow my own advice here. Guns in public spaces are just plain scary. It would seem that such scare tactics from the occupy movement might start the conversation the NRA doesn't want us to have.
