In my opinion the young man was acting immature, not the attitude I expect off someone open carrying.

He could have acted with respect and said the same things, that way he probably wouldn't have been disarmed during the conversation.

You do not waive your rights by divulging your name and address, and I don't see the problem with allowing a pat-down search.

Wrong. If you act "with respect," and answer questions, you are considerably more likely to be found non-compliant with one of the bazillion of laws in the US. It's best not to answer questions, continue to ask if you're being detained and demand a supervisor if so.

I know two people who fucked themselves cooperating with police.

I'm curious; why can't you stand the 'average Nethertard on GLP'?
 Quoting: RoXY


Because most of the ones who post on GLP are ULTRA liberals. BIG government loving Socialists, Marxists, and Communists.

I am a real conservative, like Ron Paul. Not the NEOcon variety. Much more of a Libertarian type.

I hate Fascism just as much as a Communist hates Fascism. But I hate Communism even more. And so many Europeans seem to absolute LOVE Socialism/Communism/Marxism. And I find the Nethertards to be the worst.

I hate government tyranny of BOTH the right AND the left. The libtards seem to hate tyranny from the right, but embrace tyranny from the left.

But YOU, are a freedom-loving, limited government, sweetie.

I want you!! :)
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19010700


Now this is something Dutch people should read, in order to understand that 'conservative' Americans are not automatically Neo-cons.

I have learned, during the year-and-a-half that I post on this site, that a whole lot of people, whether they are far-left or far-right, have had it with the way our lives & minds are being permanently fucked up by people who profit from taxpayers money - OUR money - to shove a system of government through our collective throaths, that is based on rules, regulations & laws nobody needs, but everybody is effected by.
 Quoting: RoXY



Well said.

The whole left vs right Hegelian Dialectic is nothing but a tool of enslavement. One that guarantees more of the same.

That's why I can't STAND people who blame "the right", or blame "the left", when they THEMSELVES are to blame, because THEY are neck-deep in the dog and pony show. Playing on the enemies field, by the enemies rules, in a little box created FOR them, by... the enemy.

Break OUT!

People from BOTH the left AND the right are paying for their own high-tech tyranny. At literal gunpoint. People need to get back to our roots, and start striving for restoring the basic principles that made this nation so distinct from all others to begin with.

Continual deviation from the worlds most perfect form of government, is what has landed us where we are at today. The founders (here) NEVER intended that we were to be a democracy! Knowing that Democracy always degenerates into a tyrannical dictatorship (which we ARE).

This country was founded as a constitutional, representative REPUBLIC. The REAL beginning of the end, was 1913. He who owns the gold... RULES. And that is what we are not facing.

Anyway... It's 1:15 AM here in Oregon, s I'm off to bed. But Roxy... never change!

A good friend of mine legally pulled his pistol during an altercation. He even called the police. When they came out there, they took his gun and three weeks later charged him with aggravated menacing based on absolutely nothing. His lawyer told him, verbatim "I have no clue what the hell they're doing here." They ended up dropping it to disorderly conduct which he plead out to because the legal shit had already cost him over 10k.

This assertion is a flat out lie.

Again, if he had the weapon in his hand the police would have treated it as a felony stop. He would at the least been put on the ground and handcuffed. None of this happened. Therefore the weapon was NEVER ANYWHERE EXCEPT HIS HOLSTER.

The Dilemma of Gun Ownership in the United States
by Kourosh Ziabari
July 10, 2012

Adopted on December 15, 1791, the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution rules that the possession of firearms and ammunition for the purpose of self-defense is legitimate and legal under US law.

This amendment, which was ratified along with the rest of United States Bill of Rights, emphasizes the right of people to keep and bear arms.

According to a 2006 Gallup survey, some 34 percent of the citizens of the United States possess firearms. Thus there seem to be more than 200 million firearms in private hands.

Based on the statistics released by Reuters, from 1993 to 2000, the United States was the leading supplier of conventional arms to the developing world. In 1999, more than 4 million firearms were manufactured in the United States for domestic sale or export. The Reuters' report added that more than 300 US companies produce arms and ammunition annually; a fact that is incredible and mind-boggling.

What drew the attention of the international community to the issue of gun ownership in the United States once again was the heartrending murder of the assistant principal of Millard South High School, Vicki Kaspar, who was mortally shot by Robert Butler, a 17-year-old student of Lincoln (Nebraska) Southwest High School on January 5. The student was earlier suspended by Ms. Kaspar for driving a car across a Millard South athletic field. After killing the assistant principal, Butler committed suicide as he had previously announced.

The death of the 59-year-old Kaspar marked the latest lethal attack by a student on the staff of a high school in the United States a crime, which is seen with increasing regularity in American high schools.

However, the deadliest massacre of this type in the United States took place 4 years ago when Seung-Hui Cho, a South Korean senior-level undergraduate student at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, killed 32 people and wounded 25 others in a shooting rampage, which was described by the media as the bloodiest mass murder of university students and professors in US history.
