    I believe a recruiter will do what ever it takes to meet his quota! You can bank on that JACK!

    I am calling out the Rangers who reacted so poorly on this one. I agree it was wrong and disrespectful of him to wear that. However, THIS IS THE NATURE OF LIBERTY! I know why they were offended I get it! I agree they should be offended. However when someone joins the military and eventually earns that uniform they agree to guarantee this guys right to do this. Maybe someone should have said to him “I am a Ranger can I speak with you about that uniform a moment?” and then explain to him why wearing it offensive in a polite and friendly way. It seems he likely would have understood.

    I am very pro-military and I respect the hell out of the men and women who join and risk life and limb for us. Let me be the first to say this country owes them all more than we can ever repay. That said, it ever so slightly tarnishes their great service when they begin demanding everyone only take advantage of that liberty on their terms.

    I do not like what he did but he should not have been treated badly by anyone and especially not by service members! Honestly, they should have been the first to defend him. Like it or not that is the liberty you agreed to defend.

    There is one problem with this idea. THERE IS NOT RIGHT TO DRIVE A CAR AMENDMENT! Lets look at an example of this outside the gun debate. The founding fathers incorporated into our constitution the liberty to travel about freely. However they did not say how you could do it. This was not so they could regulate it later but because they understood that as the world evolved we would travel in many different ways. However, this has a paradoxical effect built into it. Because there is a lack of specific language as to what means we may employ for travel it has invited those in power to regulate all forms of travel EVEN WALKING! Now, back to the gun debate.

    In their wisdom our founders wrote the second amendment with extraordinarily clear language. The only people who believe the wording is unclear are the gun grabbers. I am not referring to the “shall not be infringed” part either. I speak specifically of the word “state”. In the States ratified version the word “state” went from the original form passed by congress “State” to a lowercase form “state” by the time it was ratified and signed by T.J. This is significant because in lower case the word “state” takes on the connotation of a “state of existence” and not as gun grabbers would have us believe a “sovereign State”. Therefore when the amendment says “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state” it is saying in modern parlance “An armed and trained populace is n

    My state WV is a shall issue state. They should all be SHALL ISSUE states. Better yet, it would be best if there were no permitting required at all which is what our founders intended,

    Just 3 days ago I did have an situation where having mt permit was a help.

    In heavy traffic at a very dicey 3 way intercetion from behind an ambulance could be herd and you see the cars parting to make way. In fromt of me a car with one of those bolt loosening bass systems had it cranked up. Due to the way traffic was stacked up to my left and in front of me unless he made way for me I could not make way for the ambulance. With the ambulance now behind me trying to get through I started HONKING and motioning him to move. So he finally moves after all this and the abbulance go along it way. No cops around to see this by the way.

    NOW, this idiot gets out of his car flipping me the bird with a large crescent wrench in his hand walking up to my car. He is angry at me for what ever reason. He keeps coming and gets within 10 fee of my car. I open my door just a few inches to allow me to move if need be and I yell to him “Go BACK TO YOUR CAR, YOU ARE THREATING ME, IF YOU CONTINUE ADVANCING ON ME I WILL DEFEND MYSELF. YOU ARE ABOUT TO MAKE A .45 CALIBER MISTAKE.” The guy stops cold looks at me for a moment says nothing then gose back to his car and drives off.

    For all he knew I was full of crap but the possability that he was facing someone armed was enough to deter him.

    If this is true, and the COPS were right, and these guys were disorderly then:
    > I should be able to call the COPS on every MOSQUE holding services, Mosques make me feel unsafe. That makes then disorderly.
    > I should be able to call the COPS on every CATHOLIC CHURCH, They have a bad track record in history too. That makes then disorderly.
    > I should be able to call the COPS on every KID with cell phone and a car, I really feel unsafe about that. And, teens are always disorderly even when they ar orderly.
    > I should be able to call the COPS on everyone I see with a CHAIN SAW in TEXAS, Iv seen TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE. Dudes with chainsaws in Texas are all disorderly.

    You see this is the problem with your STUPID comment. When dose your right to FEEL SAFE, NOT BE SAFE BUT FEE SAFE get to take precedence over everyone elses rights?

    The honest truth is MOSQUE’s DO SCARE ME but this is the USA and untill the folks in that MOSQUE show that they are or intend to be a clear and present threat they are FREE TO EXERCISE THEIR RIGHTS! Now, the fact that I am afraid because other MOSQUES have produced TERRORISTS is irrelevant because in this country WE DONT JUDGE SOMEONE FIRST AND THEN ALLOW THEM TO EXERCISE THEIR RIGHTS! You have to prove you can not handel your liberty then we take it away. Well…thats the way it is supposed to work.

    I feel bad for NY citizens but unfortunatly it is a land of sheep in a way. All those lib up there they cant stand things like the constitution, liberty ect. At least in WV where I am from or democrats are a little closer to purple than all blue.
