Not to hijack my own post but who decided Rep. Lawlor is the only person to interveiw for the anti gun side of the discussion. With comments like this he is obviously biased and prejudiced.
"What about people who push this right and they go into a McDonald's wearing a camouflage outfit and a gun?" Lawlor said. "There are people who do this. The criminal law says it is a crime to either intentionally or recklessly create alarm in public. For the same reason it is against the law to stand up in a movie theater and cry 'Fire,' you should be arrested."
Before you know it camouflage clothing will be outlawed.You areobviously intending to cause panic if you wear any as he points out. Next will be tattoos and earings.Are you kidding me? Talk about sterotyping and profiling. This is pretty rediculous coming from an elected rep. In his eyes, carrying a gun is the same as yelling fire in a theater. Wearing camo is like yelling fire in a theater, because if you do you are probably wearing a gun for which we should lock you up! I can't stand the stupidity. This is theEXACT same mentality that got your assault weapons bans put on the books. They "look"scary. Lets make them illegal. Rifles painted black? Pants painted camouflaged? It is open and obvious bias and prejudice that is allowed to be expressed.
