Why? What purpose supportive of the RKBA would it serve? Why would you think it would serve that purpose? Any evidence or data to support your beliefs?

It strikes me that many people who support gun control and politicians who vote for gun control legislation do so because they are frightened of people who own guns. I don't see how a sort of demonstration as suggested by the OP could ameliorate those fears, and would more likely to increase them.

In any case, what positive would likely come of this sort of exercise?
