    More with Seattle's finest... with ZERO issues. In fact, I believe a couple of the officers commended him for OC.

    Now, can there be any doubt the Seattle PD will NOT bother us? They spoke with DEROS72 and commended his OC and ignored him AND grishnav the rest of the event.

    Cool. I wanted to go to a local one, but I have a shop to build and lots to do here before I can really get back to business. Besides, the organizer from Gig Harbor didn't reply to my email.

    I did, however, have a homeless-looking counter-protester threaten to beat the crap out of me, steal my gun, and shoot up the crowd. Nice guy, him.

    I'll cut together the footage in the next few days (or weeks?) and post it up. I might just do a quick and dirty cut of the harassment part for your entertainment.

    It was good meeting you today and hate to see that you were hasseled by anyone. Glad it was a street person rather than the SPD.

    I am looking forward to your video. Since you work downtown, we should grab a coffee sometime.

    And you didn't inform a LEO to have him arrested for Class C Felony Harassment pursuant to RCW 9A.46.020?

    That would be awsome.....Also did you notice that no cars were set on fire,no windows smashed etc.These were real folk.There were many I talked to in the crowd that were CC.Didn,t know OC was legal.Fortunatly I remebered to bring some of our pamphlets.There was one little 3 year old girl there with a sign that said. I can't read the spending bill yet.What was your excuse.?Just cute as it gets.

    Also ask grinav about the anti that threatened to take his gun and shoot up the crowd to make us look bad.He was also there OC.He got all thet anti encounter on tape.....Personally I would have reported that to one of the cops there.

    Awesome pic DEROS. I was there too, OCing, but I didn't see anyone else. I gave out a few pamphlets to interested folks, though. Walked right past the cops with my strong side toward them and they didn't say anything.

    If you recall when the one speaker (Paris, I think his name was. The theme of his speech was "I can see clearly now") was talking about the weak candidates the Republicans were running, I was the one who yelled "John McCain!".

    Not OC related, but my favorite sign:

    I would have liked to have been there, but work is touch and go at this point as it is, last thing I needed to do is skip out yesterday.

    I would really like to see that video of the guy who apparently blew his stack......nice folks in the area.

    He must be angry that you were speaking out against the forced redistribution of wealth that he's going to rely on to "move on up" in the world.......like I'm supposed to pay so the crackheads just like this one can live without having to work.

    Yup, me too... especially since it's a Class C Felony, as I pointed out above.

    So, uh, I can't find my video editing software, Windows Movie Maker won't import my camera's files without conversion, and Jahshaka just isn't ready yet... So I'm a bit stuck. I'll either have to buy something or pirate Premiere. Either way, I'll figure it out soon.

    Thank you guys for representing us OC'ers so well.

    You really should have reported the guy who made the threat to take your gun and shoot people with it. People like that should at least get the message that making threats like that are not tolerable.

    Don't do that... Headline would be twisted... :"5 lazy Seattle Police Officers do nothingas crazy man carrys a gun in plain view!"

    Don't even mention to Diane Sawyer that you didn't have a"Permit" to carry it.

    So who had the Glock?

    http://blogs.seattleweekly.com/daily...ost_mortem.php

    Protesting Nickels' Gun Ban: Although most of the protestors were carrying teabags and signs, it seems that at least a couple were openly packing heat. This reporter observed one man with a Glock strapped in a hip holster hovering around the outskirts of the crowd, filming the proceedings. Technically Washington is an "Open Carry" state and it's perfectly legal to carry a handgun in public. It's not every day you see somebody exercising that right. Certainly not in downtown Seattle.

    I was at a meeting today at the West Precinct. The police estimated the crowd at 300. I told them I was there and it was WAY over that. Closer to 2,000 in my guestimate.

    They also said "the" open carry guy stayed on the sidewalk and didn;t interact with the crowd. Also not true. DEROS72 spent over 90 minutes in the crowd.
