There is a right time for everything.....conversely there is also a WRONG time for everything as well. I am all for open carry, I wish we had it in Texas.

I am all for exercising one's rights. However, sometimes inappropriate behavior (even if it is legal) can detract from advancing the best interests of maintaining those rights.

I am NOT for feeding easy set-ups to the liberal left wing press that make us look like a bunch of loons. BP - I do not ever expect that the Left will ever be happy with my opinions. However, why give them easy opportunities to enhance their own points of view?

To each his own.

I completely disagree. Showing up with a pistol, or even one of my built tac rifles over my shoulder would not have made the headlines "Man brings ASSAULT RIFLE to Town Meeting". The fact is, that guy immediately got singled out because he brought one of the dreaded weapons that everyone on the Left bitches about having NO CIVILIAN USE.

It was a bad choice of weapon. Period.

Agreed. This was a softball for the Left and they hammered it out of the park with their coverage.....

There is a time and place for everything, even insurrection, this was not the place to show up with that weapon, IMO.
