    This is how the rest of us get a bad name

    Stupid people make it hard for the rest of us. Notice how they were quick to point out she was open carrying and she also had just gotten a concealed carry permit. Would they have done that if she didnt have one?

    That's nothing new unfortunately...

    A fledgling politician was trying to convince me he was Pro Gun the other day.
    One of his arguments was that he had been a Special Conservator of the Peace in Richmond.

    He doesn't know it, but I had met him in those days and they were really called Special Police and the city handed them out like candy. It was one way to get a CCW in the old "may issue" courts.

    One such Special Police officer (Which was only valid for a Drug Store in the Fan)
    Was Tyrone Kenny.
    Tyrone could neither read nor write and had most of his teeth knocked out.

    He was famous for jumping out of his car when he'd spot evil in the making and yell "Pweece" and pull his gun.

    Most people in the area knew him and just ran off so Tyrone started firing warning shots.
    This was a weekly occurrence.

    When that finally made the papers, the magistrate charged him with one count.
    Before he made it to court, he raped his Cousin and got some jail time.

    Stupidity is not an exclusive trait to any one segment of the population.

    The real question is how many OCers and CCers did NOT do any thing stupid this day?
    My best estimate 99.99% or better.

    Was she open carrying because she was trying to look like a police officer or was she open carrying because she open carries?

    According to the article, she did/said several things in pretending to be a LEO.

    Not really. It's hard on her, not on me.

    I still have my rights. The government cannot change that without changing the state constitution.
    Does anyone here actually believe that the Founders were sitting around in John Adams' tavern UNARMED because they believed a bar should be a gun free zone?

    She must have nodded off in class when the instructor said, "A permit does not make you a police officer."

    +1, there is always bad and stupid in everything, unfortunately you cant fix stupid. So how many people with a license to drive break the law and or are stupid drivers? Go figure that is a privilege and not a right. It can and does cause death and injury, and it can legally be taken away..Yet most would rather focus on the small percentage as grape pointed out rather than something that is a bigger issue. From the sound of it too, if she was that screwed up, I doubt she would have cared if OC was legal or not.

    Yes, but they're able to alter it whenever they please and without a shred of authority.

    And election after election "we" vote in criminals and pathological liars and reprobates thinking that we can somehow affect change.

    All we change is the names and the faces, the machinery of their deplorable intent thunders on.
