Fun gimmick for rallies

Hello everybody,

The usual caveats apply; sorry if this isn't the place to post this or if I missed the applicable forum rules, etc

I thought of a gimmick that we might use at the next rally or protest... with a twist. Please read and let me know your thoughts. I'm fully prepared to get laughed down for this idea, but thought I should share anyway.

What I'm thinking follows along these lines. Since gun control rallies are usually small, the prevailing wisdom on gun communities is to avoid the area so as not to give the impression of there being all too many gun control supporters present. This is sound advice I can stand behind since we don't want to leave any room for the media to interpret our presence as further support.

After some general pondering on the subject of personal freedom in our nanny state, I had an idea. Why don't we mock them? I don't mean in the open carry style of protest where pro-gun community members show up openly carrying guns. All this does is give the gun control crowd ammunition such as "Peaceful moms for common sense gun control are intimidated by armed thugs". What I propose is mockery by joining the protesters and supporting their message. Specifically, the gimmick involves joining the protesters as caricature personas. Let's show up dressed as brown shirts and carry signs saying "Gun control for the ze fatherland". Or dress up like scumbags wearing wifebeaters and backwards caps while holding signs like "I want my victims unarmed". Let's do something unexpected and funny that isn't directly gun-related.

I fully appreciate how low and dirty a tactic like this is. If anybody reading this is offended by this, feel free to call me out and tell me how not so wonderful I am.

Thanks for reading.

TL;DR version:
Let's crash a gun control rally while dressed as nazis and rapists.
People who argue for the banning of arms ask for automatic rule by the young, the strong, and the many, and that's the exact opposite of a civilized society.
