    Gun activist shares piece of his mind



    Just when you thought the leader of Maine's "open-carry" gun movement was, shall we say, a flash in the pan, he's back.




    Saturday afternoon, with his trusty Heckler & Koch USP Compact .357 Sig strapped to his side, Shane Belanger will meet once again at Portland's Back Cove with like-minded folks who think the only thing wrong with loaded weapons on the street is that there aren't enough of them.

    Unlike their inaugural Back Cove barbecue three weeks ago, this weekend's gathering comes with a rather odd community-service twist: It will be Maine's first Open Carry Trash Pick-Up.

    "This isn't in response or reaction to anything," said Belanger. "We're just going to give back to the community."

    Some would argue that Belanger, at this point, is best ignored. But we focus this morning on his latest pistol-packing publicity grab for two reasons.

    First, it's only fair to warn would-be litterbugs that you'd best be avoiding the walking path around Back Cove starting at 2 p.m. Saturday.

    Second, as it becomes clear that Belanger's Maine Open Carry movement is apparently going to be around for awhile, a couple of questions beg to be answered:

    Who exactly is this guy? . . .

    He is, for starters, a very nice kid.

    Classic speaking down, condescending approach from interviewer.

    I'm impressed with Shane's grace under fire, knowledge and level, straight forward approach. He and others behind him have put Maine fore square on the OC map.

    I wish him the best and hope he never burns out - don't think he will as I think the whole idea has become a life style for him.

    Best of luck Shane! Hope your exams went well and you have a great summer!

    What's next?
