Yes officer, I have a constitutional right to bear arms. We need to get back to a time when openly caring a firearm wasn't the exception, but the rule. This idea that we should all fear firearms has got to stop. I understand what your saying db321 and I'm not trying to denigrate you. But the idea that officers need to establish my right to have a firearm only reinforces the idea that any one with a gun is someone they should fear. What causes this, a media that likes to portray everyone with a gun as a mad man ready to go nuts on a crowed of people. That is not reality... But the more it is portrayed, the more likely it will become that we will have to get more and more permits to have guns. Then the more likely it is that there will be more gun restrictions. Then the more likely it will be that we lose our right to keep and bear arms.
That's because your white and all police are racist white supremacists.
That's why we must vote for Hillary Clinton, Glenn showed me the light.
@TheBlaze4Hillary, Hey, are you one of those George Soros paid trolls, or are you one of those Russian trolls? Either way, you're really bad at your job.
No, I just donated heavily into the #NeverTrump movement so Hillary would become President.
Thank you, TB4H, for clearing any and all doubts that you are totally stupid. No sarc here.
WhereDidMyCountryGo, please show.me where in this story it says that any firearm was involved. The story mentioned a Taser and that under the circumstances the assaulted officer would have been justified in using lethal force. Db321 mentioned how he handles officers when stopped by saying he has a CCL and license and answers all questions with yes/no sir/ma'am out of respect. You people have no idea how to think things out to a logical conclusion. Curious, if you are attacked by a perp and you have a choice to defend yourself with either a banana or gun, why do you chose the banana?
My only problem is with dragnets. Supposed 'spot checks' or 'random check points' that are supposed to be for drugs or whatever.
I don't care what state comes up with what sort of exception to the rule - we are supposed to be able to travel this country unmolested. Period. Unless of course we actually do something wrong.
That is the only time I am very reluctant to just pucker up and hand over my information for no reason. I ended up going to jail over it on one occasion. Simply because I asked 'why?' - end of conversation. Pulled me from the car, told me he didn't have time for abusive smartarses, and booked me for insulting an officer, etc. etc.
Fortunately had all the audio recorded on my dashcam. Charges were dropped. They sure didn't pay my tow / impoundment fees for my car though. Meh.
justthinkinoutloud, I have no idea what your talking about when you bring up bananas. I'm talking about the importance of being able to exercise our constitutional rights without having to justify it to anyone, and your talking about defending yourself with fruit. Furthermore, if you had any clue what you were talking about, my comment to db321 wasn't about the story so much as it was about how he interacts with officers. The point I made was this, at no point during a traffic stop, should we be forced to prove that we have the right to exercise our rights to carry a firearm. I stated that carrying guns should be the norm, not the exception. I am an advocate for more open carry. That way we can do away with permits and licenses. I shouldn't have to pay the government in order to have the right to exercise my rights. Having said that, I also made it clear that the media is causing this situation by portraying everyone with a gun as a potential mad man. Hence my understanding as to why officers ask if your carrying a firearm and understanding why db321 immediately points out the fact that he is a CCL holder. I simply stated that as more and more people open carry, people will become less fearful of guns and feel the need to justify why they have them. I want cops to know that citizens are armed. And that my having a gun doesn't threaten you as a police officer. So lets cut the CCL crap and write me my ticket for speeding and lets all go on about our day.
Justthinkingoutloud... People like you are irritating because you don't read everything in context. You just assume you know what your talking about. Think to yourself before you think out loud. It is one thing to respect the authority of an officer. I happen to be respectful when I'm pulled over. I'll give you an example. I was driving down the road at 35 in a 35. It was just before dusk, but it wasn't dark at all. As i was driving up a hill, an officer was driving over the hill in the opposite direction. The second he saw me, he flipped his lights did a uturn and I pulled over. He asked me if I knew I why he pulled me over. I didn't know so he said, because "your lights weren't on, and I think you were going a little fast." To which my response was. "Its still fairly light out, and considering you saw me for one tenth of a second when you flipped your lights on, and did not have any time to ascertain my speed, is this your attempt at a fishing expedition in hopes that I admit to speeding so you can write a ticket?" He actually laughed and said, "We do ask leading questions in hopes that you'll admit to doing something that we don't actually know that you did." As we continued, I told him I was a CCL holder and was carrying a loaded firearm in the glove box. What started as a simple light stop turned into BS and an officer crossing his fingers hoping he could write a big ticket. A simple stop for lights resulted in 20 minutes of wasted time and no ticket. He was just fishin
The suspect committed a series of crimes.
They do not list the warrant for arrest - a mystery; critical to context, but then this site shades everything!
With regard to “respect”: for anyone in the military or having the benefit of a proper education, you know respect is earned & not conferred or granted by putting on a set of work clothes.
The essence of respect for an institution/ organization is earned each & every day by every member of that institution/ organization performing to a standard.
db321 What you describe is fear (well-founded given the frequency of killings that would land a citizen in jail).
Here is a story demonstrating concrete reasons why no standard is applied & respect is replaced by fear: Miami Beach FL PD fired Sergeant (extreme stolen valor) Muley; caught on video drunk out of his mind in work clothes at the South Beach Mangos nightclub; 6 double vodkas, drawing his service weapon while dancing with a woman before vomiting.
Thanks to the union drunken dog squeeze has now been reinstated.
What sober, serious, law abiding adult would knowingly respect any organization that acts directly, consistently against the public & tax payer’s welfare?
By the way dog squeeze is paid about $160k a year.

What is he talking about? We already have a Media that does not talk about Terrorism.
We also have a Country of Clueless Citizens that have no clue of what is coming.
Make feel a little sorry for God, he spent his time in most of the new Testament warning his people of what was coming, and yet they CHOOSE not to believe GOD!

Is it me, or does Kaepernick look like Antony Wiener?
