    Officers say were holding the man at gunpoint during the exchange.

    At that point, the incident became tense, with officers ordering Vichique to put the gun on the ground, and Vichique respectfully denying their request, saying repeatedly he was not breaking any laws.




    Vichique is a DUMB ASS!

    This was already posted. 19year old kid wanted attention. It seems that San Antonio should have taken care of that dumb law to begin with.
    When cops point guns at me- (hasn't happened yet) I'm gonna do what they say.

    The city ordinance states that 'it shall be unlawful for any person, other than a duly authorized peace officer, to carry a loaded rifle or shotgun on any public street within the city or in a motor vehicle while the same is being operated on any public street in the city.'

    Does this not go against the state firearms preemption law?

    LOCAL GOVERNMENT CODE CHAPTER 229. MISCELLANEOUS REGULATORY AUTHORITY OF MUNICIPALITIES
    "FIREARMS; EXPLOSIVES. (a) A municipality may not adopt regulations relating to the transfer, private ownership, keeping, transportation, licensing, or registration of firearms, ammunition, or firearm supplies. Municipal governments can enact regulations on the discharge of firearms (such as noise, nuisance or public safety ordinances); however, those laws are subject to and cannot preempt State law concerning justified use of a firearm."

    PENAL CODE CHAPTER 46. WEAPONS
    "A person may carry a loaded handgun without a permit while in or heading directly to a motor vehicle or watercraft they own or control. The statute does not specifically state the handgun must be concealed while heading to the vehicle or watercraft, and 46.02, which requires concealment of a handgun while in a motor vehicle or watercraft, is not applicable to a person while the person is traveling, pursuant to said activities. 46.15(b)(2)."

    San Antonio, a Democrat infested cesspool sanctuary city, even has a clause in the City Charter to prohibit the sales or transfer of guns and ammunition when the city manager declares a public emergency.

    Problem is, the Democrat entitlement constituency lives and plays with the gun. They will be the first to gun and run in any public emergency.
