Go back and reread what she says about becoming a relic if you don't change on this issue. The majority of people under 30 are Marriage Equality. Get on the right side of history or stay Right and become extinct.

Perhaps Gowdy(spit) can explain why he voted for the Cronybus bill next?

What I don’t miss about Bush– him calling me a racist because I I don’t want illegals here in our country.

He’s a big RINO so, who really cares what he is afflicted with?
Most Americans don't realize the amount of Arab money invested in US corporations, including the major media, which is why such censorship occurs. And Europe is afraid the Arabs will cut off the oil supply.

I regret so-called conservatives still support Fox News aka The Rove News Network.

Leave it to Beck and his untalented minions to exploit a crisis to get in front of a camera while enriching himself on his tv channel subscriptions. Hey Beck, it doesn’t matter how much you cave, Comcast does not want you.

Then again, they have Shall Issue CCW and open carry. So maybe not as commie as you think.

When do you suggest he Open Carry then?
Open Carry means Open Carry. Not when LE feels it’s not proper.
If you need to PROVE A POINT, using a gun/rifle, then THAT goes towards your character. Proving a point like this is simple rebellion.
Good law-abiding citizens NEVER HAVE TO PROVE THEIR 2ND AMENDMENT RIGHTS. They know they have the right to carry and/or own a gun, so they don't shout it from the rooftops. Those who feel they want to PROVE to the world, they have these rights, are simpletons and not very intelligent.
BTW: do a search of Police forces all over America getting heavy-duty military vehicles. WHAT ARE THEY PREPARING FOR? For example: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/06/14/local-police-snatch-up-surplus-military-gear/
So you believe the founders of this nation where wrong. You believe the "civil rights" people are wrong.
Why are you discriminating against an inalienable right?
You are speaking to Obama voters here, they don't believe that PERIOD means PERIOD!
I do not believe that I can trust the warped lying judgment of criminals on patrol.
And "Disorderly Person" means "Disorderly Person" and is just as meaningful as Open Carry in the big mitten here. The man was beligerant and combative when the Lt. spoke to him and technically was guilty of "Disorderly Person" at that time. The Cop was respectful and mindful of the Open Carry law and trying to find a balance between those 2 i believe. Any Michigan judge i have ever been in front of (and there have been a few) would have ripped this guy a new one for giving the cops a hard time and fined him real good for his trouble.
LE didnt approach this man out of the blue, they got 2 different citizen calls about him and had to respond. I seriously doubt you would have the stones to walk up on that man while he was armed with a rifle and if you did then you would not have a very long career as an LEO...
You open carry when there is a purpose for it. Not to make a point. Open carry is legal in these places they are doing this lunacy. What’s the point? It’s already legal!!!!!!!!!
If there is fear of a riot…there is a reason to carry. If you are making your way from one point to the other on foot and want to show your buddy your gun down the street…a reason to carry…on your way to the range (better be a rifle range) or your buddies place to have a shoot?…a reason to carry…going to the gun shop to have some work done on your rifle or sell it?...a reason to carry…
Walking around aimlessly or having a burger at the local restaurant because you want to draw attention to yourself in a state that ALREADY HAS LEGAL OPEN CARRY???. YOU ARE AN IDIOT.
2GodBeTheGlory, SoftwareBabe is not discriminating against an inalienable right. She is simply saying that cooler heads need to prevail. I am an avid 2A supporter but I choose not to make an azz out of myself marching around town with my rifle resulting in harm to our 2A rights as opposed to bolstering them. Quiet and casual open carry of a holstered handgun while fueling one's car or standing on a riverbank fishing with the kids in plain sight of cars driving by is more positive than marching around like a escaped mental patient in the manner that this guy did.
Fletch14,sorry, but you seem, to me, to be just like the loudmouth that used to work at the gun shop at the end of my road. He used to be rather blunt, and loud, about the fact that if he wanted to carry in the GD post office he will carry in the GD post office. He did the 2A no favors as he turned more people off than on to open carry. Although loud and proud may work for the LGBTXYZ community, it will not work for us.
Be vary careful in your thought, words, and deeds. Please think about the words you just used, as I will now use your own words and apply them to a different amendment:
"Quiet and casual religious talk that is politically correct while fueling one’s car or standing on a riverbank fishing with the kids in plain sight of cars driving by is more positive than marching around like a escaped mental patient in the manner that this guy did." or "Quiet and casual speech that cannot be heard by anyone around while fueling..."
Look, there are many people that I would like nothing better to do than tape their mouth shut, however, it is an inalienable right that a person can voice their position. So too, I must support the open carry of a firearm as it is an equal inalienable right to any of the other rights within the Bill of Rights, no matter if the person is an idiot or a person that is protecting their family. I must support the right, to include those that are idiots, to disparage a persons right is the same as disparaging the constitution.
If the clown wasn't standing on main street trying to get attention, this would not have been an issue. Clearly the guy is a little off as the officers had dealt with him before. I think the officers did a great job. If I were in their shoes, shooting him would have crossed my mind too .. better him than me.
Had the clown been walking from his house to the grocery store to get some eggs and had the gun shouldered properly, i bet nothing would have been done. Instead, he does not have a strap, cannot shoulder it, appears aggressive and ready to shoot, and has no clear agenda other than standing on a corner with a gun. How many times have the red flags gone off before someone goes on a killing spree and we look back and say all the signs were there ... but did nothing and people died. Maybe ... and we'll never know ... thankfully ... the officers may have just saved innocent lives. The officers did the right thing .. talking him down ... proper cause .. etc. It is rare I get to say this these days .. but good job officers.
The key here was "brandishing" which is very different than "carrying".
Brandishing is actively looking for, or expecting trouble. Carrying is simply being prepared for trouble.

Parents that send their children to public schools should be charged with child abuse.
I would have to respectfully disagree. Even though it was (hopefully) a joke, I don't believe the premise that all public schools are bad. I went to a conservative high school in a conservative area and had nothing but positivity and helpfulness from all of the teachers and admins.
I hope that is sarcastic Meat...please leave the blanket statements and insinuation to the Progressive Idiots....
Charged with child abuse is a bit extreme. I agree not all public schools are filled with idiots. This particular probably isn't all bad either. This was likely the work of some petty teacher who perhaps had something against this young woman. Look, for all we know, this kid has been a pain in the ass for four years. Still, you'd expect an adult to act a bit more rationally. Clearly, they didn't do that here.
But overall, I do believe that if you send your kids to public school, you're getting what you deserve. I think most parents pay really close attention to what goes on with their kids and avoid situations like these. I do find it laughable when people are "surprised" stuff like this goes on, though. There are tons of incidents we don't hear of but happen every day.
