    With all the idiots getting arrested at these events, there's no way I would go near one. Besides they'd probably attack you and force you to pull your gun on them.

    I believe there is one here in DT Boise, ID. I am always strapped so when I do errands I will stop by if I can find a close space. Pictures to come.

    Meh why bother, lenin's useful idiots will (and already have) turned to violence and will get beat down. it's only a matter of time considering who their biggest supporters are
    .north korea
    .iran
    .several communist and socialist parties/groups
    .nazis
    .code pink

    etc....

    We spent a good 60+ years fighting against these ideals in foreign battlefields and now they try to take us from within....

    Funny how none of them want to talk about greece their ideal society what with the 150% of GDP dept they have rang up with their social entitlement programs. vocalising for plans and ideas that have a proven failure record in european socialist systems.

    I just try and stay away and wait for the winter weather to break them, especial on the east coast. that way i will not get overly irritated at the level of ignorance, stupidity and seditious rhetoric coming from them.

    WHAT???

    You mean no one's gone down there and given these fools the finger?? Drive-by mooning?? ANYTHING???

    Y'all have any idea how much will power it takes to have to drive past these fools twice a weak and not jerk the wheel to the right and remove a few of them from the gene pool?? Especially when they're throwing themselves in front of the dang bus to make their "point"?? Sheesh!

    Someone needs to go down there and do something infantile and petty dangit!

    I dont quite understand how they can complain about not having enough jobs then stand in the way of others and keeping them from doing theirs? Why they destroy and loot local small business when they are complaining about corporations? I'm just waiting for all 99% of them to occupying homeless camps and go back to occupying their parents basements. Btw anyone looking for a job evidently Alabama is looking for workers...

    occupy bellingham

    My Sweet Baboo and I went to Maritime park in Bellingham "just to see it". She OCd her Star 9 for the first time. There were a few tents laid out and three guys were dilligently attempting to get a brand new generator up and running. About thirty folks milling around. Lori and I picked up trash for about 15/20 mins and started up conversations with some people. The usual"you guys cops?" and after that no problem. We spoke with over a dozen and all admitted that almost everybody there was homeless and just there for the no hassle coffee, camp, and donuts. We did see a woman arrive on a bike all decked out with protest signs and camping gear. A few mins later a film crew showed up to interview her. The the film crew left and once they were gone, SHE left. Looked a bit staged to me. One little girl got belligerent with Lori, but we blew it off to frustration. About ten mins later I noticed she was peeling a piece of fruit with a six inch lockback Buck Knife. Nice little weapon she had concealed. No other probs, we cruised downtown to Rocket Donuts and shopped a bit.

    No.

    What occupies the commode after such time has actually served a purpose at some point in its existence.

    If you watch the video the guy doesn't say he agrees with the protesters just their right to do it. And he will fight to protect those rights even when he disagrees. I respect that.

    Why would anyone want to OC at an Occupy venue.In light of the anti's trying to introduce a ban on OC we do not want to be seen at one of these.They will spin it as Oc group looking for confrontation.If they introduce this anti OC ban they will be looking for every opportunity to put us in a bad light.Stay away from these groups.We have to be seen (or not seen in this case ) in the best possible light.Our behavior must be exemplary and we are not looking to get noticed at one of these or be seen associating with these people.

    You sure about that? These people already have a history of violence and wanton disrespect for private property. I'd say they are the LAST people who should be carrying, openly or otherwise. *




    *Note that I did NOT say that they should be denied the same 2A rights we enjoy, rather that they ought not be exercising them until they demonstrate some maturity.

    Are you saying only the right people should have guns?

    Perhaps exposure guns and training in reality would benefit them in other ways. Prohibition doesn't work whether we do it or they do it.

    My personal omniscience is somewhat unreliable.
    I prefer to judge actual actions.
    I'm saying people with a documented history of violence should not have guns when engaged in activities that tend to lead them to said violence.

    I'm saying people without a certain level of maturity to safely handle guns, should not have guns.

    When the Tea Party gets together to have a protest, no one not involved is inconvenienced, they clean up after themselves, and there's never even a hint of violence even though half of them are armed.

    Whenever these people get together, however, they make a royal mess, disrupt the lives of people who are not even the targets of their ire, and have a bad habit of starting riots and smashing up stores run by law-abiding, innocent business folk.

    That demonstrates to me a certain lack of maturity and rational decision making skills.

    I'm not sure if you're seriously debating this or not. Just in case: who determines if we're mature enough? How would you legally justify that requirement since it is notably absent from the state and national constitutions?
    Even people we don't like have rights. Especially people we don't like. Otherwise there's no such thing as a "right", only cronyism.

    Go back & read my first reply to you, specifically my "disclaimer" at the bottom:

    Where in anything I said do you find any mention of a legal requirement or any statement that their rights should be actively denied by anyone?

    I said they OUGHT not have guns. They OUGHT not be there at all. Merely showing up to support such an event, IMHO, demonstrates a distinct lack of maturity and rational decision making skills. Hence, they OUGHT not be armed.

    Capiche?

    These occupy protests are a joke. If anything, I'd be there to fill them in on what I believe is the truth.

    I'll just keep OCing as I do in my everyday life.

    "Ought not" and "should not" sound rather imperative. I guess I just reject the notion that one's politics or anything else short of a conviction at trial justifying the notion someone should not exercise a right.

    Much of the reporting around the Occupiers (O) seems similarly shallow to that of the Tea Partiers. Both groups encompass a considerable diversity of belief and actions. There is a fair amount of overlap in their participants.

    O's that are incensed about Wall Street bail-outs seem perfectly sensible to me. I wish them well. I would prefer them to be OC and appear to be articulate when interviewed.
