    You guys know my opinion on this type of thing but I figured you might be interested in it.

    The officer told the group to disband or he would issue them a citation. Rally organizer James Franklin exchanged contact information.

    "He wasn't real clear on that except for he stated that we were somehow in violation of Andrews municipal code 42-44 which is covering funeral processions and parades moving in the streets," Franklin said.

    "It causes undue alarm. We don't want to make it an issue. We want these people to have the right to bear arms. Not the carrying of the weapon don't get me wrong, not the carrying of the long gun, no that is not what the problem is. It is the fact that people start panicking or locking their doors, closing their business doors. They are afraid that somebody is going to rob them or something. So it creates a disruption of business and becomes a disorderly conduct type issue,"

    - Andrews Police Chief Bud Jones

    So they did not apply or did not receive the required certification for their rally? The report only stated that they had talked to LEO about the rally and about applying for the certification in the future....

    Not just the Yankees, but all sorts of handwringing, mamby-pamby, tofu eating, Birkenstock wearing, dude smooching, pee-pee touchers. Unfortunately, there are not enough LE administrators with balls enough to tell these left wing morons to shut up and go home. LE (and government in general) is geared toward the lowest common denominator.

    Hays County Sheriff's Office offered very good class this year on the open carry issue. Opened many a young officer's eyes. It does not matter how the gun is perceived, it matters the intent of the carrier.

    It's funny how no one seems to be alarmed when LE openly displays their firepower. Even though they are much more likely to be a threat than your average local.

    I'm unclear, is this referring to "liberal" women kissing dudes and touching their pee-pees, or is this a veiled reference to "liberal" homosexuals and trying to make some connection? Is the consensus of the group that homosexuals do not have the right to bear arms, openly or otherwise... or as a broad-brushed group don't want to? Sorry, I'm just trying to figure out where this plays into a CC/OC/rally discussion. :confused:
