    OC at the Capitol

    The good news is no one said anything about my gun....but one cop got his feelings hurt when he objected to me videoing the Supreme court building,

    He radioed the Guard House and I had a shadow about 50 yards away while I videoed the Capitol and another one was unhappy that I wanted a cite to a non existent law and yeah, I recorded it. He was especially unhappy when he said 9/11 had changed everything and I said "Only for idiots"!

    Then they left me alone to film the Governors/AG's office and the Department of Transportation.

    So much for the "Peoples House"....off season.

    Hmm, so the guard told you that there was a law, when there was not. At grave risk: I sure am glad these law enforcement officers are so well trained as to know when they are under oath, and when they are allowed to lie...

    At least that is what we have been assured of, over and over and over again...

    I'll file the usual complaints tomorrow after I check with DGS.

    After spending some time there, I can't understand why I make fun of city people.

    lol
    How come a DUI you can get your driver licence back, which it is a privilege. But if commiting a felon, even something non violent like stealing, you are denied your constitutional rights for the rest of your life?
    If you don't support the Second Amendment to the Constitution, what other parts of the Constitution do you reject?
    More restrictions on guns? how about restrictions on chainsaws and knives?

    I've read and heard, too many times, LEOs and "civilians" using the old "9/11 changed everything" bit. Your response was, by far, the best response yet!

    This reminds me of the time the near deaf videographer was detained in Baltimore, MD for recording trains have. If he would said what you did, he would have been locked up.

    I was tired of the 9/11 BS on 9/12

    Locked up if he was extremely lucky.....it is Baltimore after all.

    You stopped the video recording before we could watch the reaction of those two ladies as they passed by.

    I had no idea the 9/11 terrorists took the planes with assault video cameras, or even used video cameras to plan their attacks.

    We are a crafty bunch. Just imagine what could be done with a loose leaf notebook and some stolen lottery pencils

    Sounds a little sketchy to me.

    I once asked my father for a dollar for the school picnic. He told me how he once killed a grizzly bear with his loose-leaf notebook.
