    How NOT to open carry

    This act of sheer stupidity has my blood boiling, it is ass hats like this that ruin things for others. Now how many states will enact bans on open carry due to this? This gets tiring and makes me wonder if people do this on purpose to have open carry banned.

    They were carrying in compliance with STATE law. The police used a preempted city ordinance as I understand it, stop this protest march.

    So they violated their 1A & 2A rights as I see it. Granted they could have carried slung on their backs for a better "appearance" , the police still would have wrongfully arrested them. Can't have black people carrying guns now can we.... Off sarcasm.

    This was a case of CWB as I see it. Carrying while black.

    Is open carry legal or not in MI I don't believe it has to be carried on a sling.

    From Open Carry Texas Face Book page:
    Speaking of the comments made in a local news story-

    This statement is completely false and these men's rights were grossly violated. Loaded rifles are NOT illegal to carry in Texas. These is a San Antonio ordinance that violates state law, which makes the ordinance null and void. In fact, our members in San Antonio always carry loaded rifles.
    •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• ••••••••••••

    "Some people participating in Saturday's march were carrying rifles, which is not illegal. However, two of the rifle-holders had bullets in their magazines, which is illegal. Two arrests were made, police said."
    March in memory of man shot by police ends in arrests
    Community members and friends of Marquise Jones, 23, took to the streets Saturday to remind the public of concerns about police violence

    Why are we discussing long gun carry in a state that has handgun open carry?

    So this occurred in TX not in MI?

    I really wish people posting these videos would provide appropriate context as to where and when these things occur. With the patchwork of state laws and constantly changing laws, not knowing where and when makes any analysis or informed discussion impossible.

    Perhaps. But one thing I love about OCDO is its demand for cites and provable facts. Low information types may get outraged by such videos but most of us here have learned (in great part just from being here for long enough) not to get our shorts in a bunch until we have all the facts. Prior to that it is just speculation and general discussion.

    I didn't watch it all, but in the opening seconds I saw enough muzzling of a friend and a bunch of cops to last me a lifetime. And with a hand on the pistol grip the whole time.
