    DENVER (AP) - Prosecutors say no charges will be filed against a man who was arrested after causing a weapons scare during the Democratic convention. Joseph Calanchini of Pinedale, Wyo., was arrested on suspicion of unlawfully carrying a weapon on Aug. 23. Police say he had two hunting rifles and two pistols in a case when he tried checking in to the Denver hotel where House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was staying. Pelosi was evacuated.


    Denver DA's spokeswoman Robin Finegan said Monday police never presented the case to prosecutors. Police did not immediately have additional information.
    Calanchini has said he didn't know about the convention or that Pelosi was at the hotel. He said he's relieved the case is closed but police haven't returned his guns or the personal belongings they confiscated from his pickup.

    "It has not been a good experience," Calanchini told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. "I know it was poor timing on my part, but I think it was just an overreaction" by police. Calanchini, a salesman in the oil field industry, said he's lost some work because of the case. He said he brought the guns to Denver to have them worked on in preparation for a safari to South Africa. His arrest didn't ruin his plans. He said he was able to get permission from authorities to make the trip, where he rented a rifle and managed to kill a warthog, an impala, a kudu and a wildebeest.
    The only terrorists I see nowadays are at the Capital.

    This sounds a lot like what happened in PA near an Obama rally:

    I hope he has a good lawyer.

    I hope he ends up owning Denver.

    Does the recent lieing by Pelosi help him in a civil suite? Would be funny to
    get her under oath, in deposition only and asked about the law breaking by
    the CIA that she is against, yet law breaking by her goons is OK?

    I though BHO just finnished laughing about danger in the US, yet this goes on?
    For a pro hunting candidate he sure does seem to not live up to his word.
    Here is a man trying to go hunting and he isn't allowed to use his guns.

    Alas i fear denver is broke, so no pockets to go after.
