Trump supporters are more than capable of protecting themselves.
I’m sure the Dallas DA will fully support Trump supporter’s defending themselves.

The security volunteers will not be armed.
From about 6-7 paragraphs down the OP link... I assumed the plan would be similar here, but, you know what happens when you assume.
We had multiple four-man escort teams out, made up of both armed (MN CCW credentialed and carrying concealed) and unarmed security escort volunteers.
Thank you for that. That is different from information I received from Oathkeepers. I would have had a problem with being called security under Texas law while armed under my LTC. I’m not sure that would fly.

Let's assume that the organizers are all 100% competent, capable folks. The thing that scares me is that a veritable call to arms like this will attract a fair share of Derps and Fudds, violating the rule against going armed into places where violence can be expected (from antifa and their ilk).

Nevertheless, I find myself enticed to lend a hand.
Oathkeepers is vetting all of the volunteers. Oathkeepers provided security in Minneapolis for the rally and were also in El Paso for the Antifa boondoggle. Oathkeepers provided security in Missouri during the festivities after the shooting there. You have not heard any stories of Oathkeepers going ape during the events and I assure you that you most certainly would hear about it because the communist media would be all over it. All you hear is silence because the communists are the once going full on ape poop.
Having zero experience volunteering as an armed participant in something like this (my volunteer work with the local PD does not allow bearing arms), I'm inclined towards considering some HAM or other work, to build some trust for how well vetting is actually accomplished.

This bit in particular worries me from the OP link.. emphasis mine, below. Again... not casting aspersions on anyone or any organization... just that my inner dialogue is trying to balance having no LE authority, breaking a rule to avoid conflict when it's entirely avoidable, but wanting to find out more about the folks involved in these events.
If you are the leader of a motorcycle club, riding club, association, or group that is interested in helping with security, or the leader of a squared away, professional three percent group, firearms association, or other patriot group, please email us at the same oathkeepersok@gmail.com email, but please add “Security Leader” in the subject line and tell us who you are with (we will trust you to vet your own men).
The security volunteers will not be armed.
