Violation of First Amendment?

Yes, “TheCollegeActivist,” we do possess the freedom of speech in America.  But no, you’re not a revolutionary badass.

This guy sets up a table and canopy for students interested in a firearms club.  However, campus authorities and police politely tell him to pack up and ship out since he’s not a student organization.

The guy, hoping to emulate the Rebel Alliance (note the Star Wars music), is so infuriated that he creates this amateur video and posts it to YouTube.

In my mind, this guy is a rebel without a cause.  What do you think?
