    Warren Drouin in the news in portland for oc!

    Just seen it on the news
    http://www.kptv.com/story/20548025/m...and-to-educate

    *The Portland Police Bureau, however, asks anyone who sees someone armed with guns to immediately call 911.*

    "However, doing one or both may generate 911 calls and possibly tie up resources that are needed for a true emergency. "

    True emergencies, like speed traps?

    Hmmmmm

    From the second link....forgot to open the first before opening this post. Grrrrr

    "armed men cause scare"

    "ended up creating a state of panic" ummmm I didn't see anyone running in the video, did you?

    "however, even area gun owners who heavilly support second amendment rights couldn't seem to get behind the two's off the wall tactics" then they put up two people with sound bites but offer nothing about their stand on the second amendment. So were these truly second amendment supporters or just joe blow on the street? I'm going with the latter.

    Didn't sound like REPORTING to me. More like spinning. Where was the interview with someone who was "sacred" or in a "state of panic"?

    I think the one business owner they interviewed might have been the one who locked his doors.

    A REAL journalist would have put that in the report. SPIN is all it is.

    Something just occurred to me. I'm glad at least one of them had a pistol and it was shown in the video. Otherwise we'd be breaking the rule against discussing long gun open carry.

    1) If gun owners were as violent as the hopolophobes on there think we are, they'd all be dead.
    2) If gun owners were half as violent as the hopolophobes themselves are, they'd all be dead.

    Those people are nut jobs.

    You can't cure stupid, no reason to waste my time posting there.

    I've been a member of Fark for quite sometime. Any firearms news story or comment thread there usually degenerates into something like what you see here. Its a good view into the nut jobs that simply don't understand their rights, or are afraid of them.

    You want to know the types of people we are facing to keep our rights? Go read some Fark here. Its scary to know those people exist.

    Nah, that just says that Portland 911 and Portland PD are unable to prioritize properly - somehow "guy walking with a visible AR15" somehow MUST be responded to while "major bank robbery in progress downtown" gets ignored - just because somebody called in the guy walking first.

    KOBI just did a "hit piece". Had some cop yacking about CCW's.....ummm did they get a Cali transplant cop? Spelled it CONSEAL CARRY WEAPON.

    Sent them a critique in a "helpful" tone, giving the correct information on several of their misstatements, and offered my assistance if they want to actually report factual material in the future.

    It still amazes me that any of you think that what Warren does is a good thing.

    A right is a right. If it's a right, then who, particularly those of us here, can rightfully tell him not to do it? That's how I see it.
