    Protestor with gun,

    Well lets not turn this thread into a flame thrower. What do you think? I believe he was within his rights to carry that gun. He observed all laws. I'm glad he exercised his rights. However I disagree with his sign. Thus puts what could have been a good image on the 2nd amendment. to a bad one. What do yall think? Be nice.

    Just because he did not agree with the politics or the agenda of OBama, does not mean that he must give up his rights...although, that's next

    Re: Protestor with gun,

    I am a strong supporter of all the rights delineated in the Constitution, even the oft ignored 9th and 10th amendments, but I consider his declaration that now is the time to water the tree of liberty [ with the blood of patriots and of tyrants] to be a direct call for, and incitement of, violent revolution, and an overt threat against the POTUS. The Secret Service had cause to arrest him.

    I personally would never bring a gun to an event like this . Look what happened to Joe The Plumber , he didn't even have a gun .

    I just had to laugh at the headline after the story:

    "What will it take for the president to have a good fall?"

    Banana peel? Doesn't anyone proofread these things?

    Re: Protestor with gun,

    I dont see what the big deal is ,he was doing nothing illegal ,even the police said he was doing nothing wrong .


    it amazes me if you live in a state where you can legaly carry a concealed firearm with a liscense nobody would know or care if somebody was carrying a pistol.

    if you live in a state where you can carry a firearm but it has to be out in the open very few notice them but when they do they act like theres going to be a shoot out at any minute.

    But it also doesn't mean that he has to bring a weapon to a presidential address just because he can.

    Sure, he is within his rights. But if he'd stopped to think about the statement he was trying to make (be it revolution, gun control, or whatever), then he'd maybe have realized that he was making the opposite statement.




    For folks who want to Keep their rights to bear arms, this is no way to act.



    When people push the limits of their legal rights, those rights have a tendency get restricted.

    Re: Protestor with gun,

    Personally, the law says he didn't do anything wrong. And if I were the presedent, I would go up to him a shake his hand for simply being an american. Not that it had anything to do with him having a gun, but for being there for exercising his rights to be an American.

    Re: Protestor with gun,

    I believe that the guy was trying to get arrested or "roughed up" by Obammy's henchmen possibly to initiate a Federal lawsuit for violation of his 2nd amendment rights.
    Regardless of whether he is within his rights or not, his actions are counterproductive to his message. Just because you are allowed a certain activity, you must weigh that against the "big picture". I think the man acted a fool and has hurt his position and ideology. If you want to fight, choose your battles carefully. The word "discretion" comes to mind....

    PS. Message to guy with gun: if you file a federal lawsuit and it goes before the Supreme Court, what cha think will be the result? Hint: Sotomayer.

    he was within his rights. if more law abiding citizens carried guns i think the crime rate would go down, at least everyone would be on a level playing field.

    Re: Protestor with gun,

    There was an incident here, near Pittsburgh where a citizen was arrested near an area where Obama
    wa speaking. He won the case as open carry is permitted in Pa. as long as you are not a felon. And
    you don't need a 'concealed weapons permit' to open carry, you can walk down the street with your
    sidearm on your hip. In many cases, it is the LEO's, (law enforcement officers) that need to be made
    aware that this is legal. While I do have a permit to carry & at times do carry a .45, I am of the mindset
    that I see no reason to let anyone know I am armed. But I may attend one of their open carry gatherings
    where they usually have a large number of men & women that go out to dinner & carry openly. They do
    have that option to exercise their rights.

    Re: Protestor with gun,

    I think it is one giant step forward.

    He was doing something guaranteed by our constitution (and I see no reason why the SS - secret service, not Schutzstaffel, should not have been watching him - that IS their job, isn't it?),

    He was doing it legally, according to the law of the constitution, and the state, and the owner of the property -

    Hey, a year ago, you couldn't even wear the wrong T-shirt to listen to the President speak, now you can bring a gun!!!!!!!!

    ================================================== ==================
    Yes maam & I agree. There is a fairly large group & growing , of people here in south-western Pa. that are
    carrying openly. Shopping at Wal-Marts, grocery stores , malls & even going out to dinner. They are polite
    if questioned by police officers & at times have had to explain or provide proof of the Pa. state open carry
    laws to the police chiefs or to the municipal offices. Like I said, a 'concealed weapons permit' is NOT needed
    to openly carry. But you must comply with the wishes of those private owners who ask you not to carry. It's
    a private property issue. And, unless you have a permit to carry concealed, you must unload your weapon &
    keep the ammo & gun separate when entering your vehicle. If harassed or arrested for simply carrying a
    weapon non-threatingly, you can bring suit against them. Of course in secure airport areas, courthouses &
    1st class cities (Philly), there are exceptions.
