The issue was that, whilst they may have had no intention of starting anything with them, the guns were NOT there for protection. If they were, there would have been a cohesive circle of armed people or even any sort od organisation of people with guns for more effective protection in case of attack. It's clear from the descriptions and pictures that, whether they were indeed neo-nazis or not, the guns were more a sign of power and might than any idea of protection. They knew the guns probably weren't needed: Antifa pepperspray and bludgeon at their worst moments, they don't shoot.
