* raises hand
I actually kind of liked it. It's based on a true story about a guy who gets out of prison and eventually finds himself some old timey religion and ends up starting an orphanage in Sudan or some such African hell hole while leading armed raids to liberate children held captive by whichever despot was kidnapping them and using them as soldiers.

God I hate open carry farkwards.  They're AT LEAST as pathetically douchebag edgy as I was in my 80's spiky punk phase.  "What do you think you're looking at?  You got a problem?  Why does everyone gotta hassle me?  I'm so persecuted just because I want to walk around with 20 pounds of dangerous metal stuck through my clothing."  The difference being, I was a teenager and they all suck, and I grew out of it.

It's background context for what this jackass is "protesting", and why/how it became that way.

Background information is good.

Because there are a ton of people, a good deal of Fark included, that do wring their limp-wristed hands at the idea of people having guns.

It's funny that the ardent defenders of the 2nd amendment want so badly to repeal private property rights that allow businesses the freedom to determine whether or not they allow guns on the property.

And by funny, I mean very, very sad.

It's a matter of personal preference. I'd rather be able to spot the armed douchebags from farther away.
Concealed carry is cowardice squared.

If you're walking around armed for no good reason, you're wrong.
And no, rescue fantasies, just-in-case, it's-muh-gord-given-constipational-right, being a wuss, it's dark out, no reason at all, and the other usual dreck do  not constitute good reason.
Examples of good reason: A specific threat against your person, you're taking the till to the bank, you're a cop on duty, you are a diamond courier, you're working your day job in an armored car, you are a bodyguard, you are a postal inspector, you're in a real combat zone, etc.

There are innocent bystanders all around you, Rambo. You are not Marshal Dillon, or John Wayne, Dirty Harry, or whatever Hollywood fantasy you believe you're living when you point your loaded pistol at the mirror.

Stop pissing your pants, pay attention to your surroundings, and don't walk around an armed douchebag.

"Pastor Terry Holcomb started posting videos of himself wandering into local businesses with an AR-15 Bushmaster rifle - the same weapon used to kill 20 children and six adults in the Newtown, Connecticut school shooting. "

Damn, I had thought that one would still be in police lock up. How did he get his hands on that?

Good for him. The bearing of arms is a Constitutional right. Might open carry upset some people? Yep. Well so did seeing an African American sitting at a table in a diner some time back. But they protested in the open and did things that some people might have thought outrageous. They did it to make it so their rights were recognized. And this citizen is doing the same. And yes, the two issues are similar. Citizens have a number of Rights protected by the Constitution. And one of them is peaceful protesting and demonstrating to ensure the rest of the rights remain recognized. The peaceful bearing of arms as an act of public education and demonstration is his right, and I for one am happy to see him exercise it.

Do private property rights allow you to torture and kill another person as long as it's on your property?
Do private property rights allow you to rob another of their property as long as it happens on your property?
Do private property rights allow you refuse publicly offered services to citizens of certain races, as long as it's on your property?

The fact is Americans have a number of rights. Some of them were specifically spelled out in the Constitution. And part of a State being a member of the Unites States is the concept that the Bill of Rights is applied equally to those States as it is federally. The law says "you can do lots of things, but you can't do things that infringe on the Constitutional rights of others". The whole "your right to swing your fist ends at my nose" idea.

So private property rights do indeed cover a lot of things and give the owner of said property the right to enforce their will on that property.......until that will conflicts with someone else's Constitutional rights. Then it becomes a violation of civil liberties.

And nothing about the open carry movement is trying to remove a property owners right to remove someone from their property if they desire. This is the basis of trespassing laws, which remain intact open carry or not. And this pastor did indeed politely leave the Wal-Mart property after being requested to do so, in compliance with private property rights and trespassing law.

So, should you pass your psychological examination, I'll see you bearing arms at drill?
/Oh, yeah. "bearing arms" is a direct reference to militia service.
//You want proof? Here's the farking debate on Amendment II.
 
2013-08-21 05:45:48 AM
You don't have to like the fact that bearing arms is a Constitutionally protected right. But that's the neat thing about rights and about the Constitution. They're most needed and most useful especially when people don't want others to have those rights. The Bill of Rights was written down just in case people in the future didn't like others doing certain things and tried to force them to stop. Bearing arms was one of those things. So it was listed just so that we in the future are fully aware that others have the right to bear arms, not only if we don't like it, but  especially if we don't like it.

Being a menacing asshole and getting booted from a Wal-mart has f*ck-all to do with civil liberties.  The Bill of Rights is not an eject button you hit when you notice your brain is working too hard.
