    If all it takes is one persons actions to change the way you feel about the second amendment perhaps you should re think your stand because it sounds to me as if you are questioning it regardless . The way one person act's or does not act can not be held against , or blamed on, a few paragraphs written in the constitution,. Thats like saying I do not believe in the 65 M.P.H. because some one was driving 70. mph

    Then why do people keep arguing about it?

    Some are concerned that his behavior prior to that day, his stated motives, his planning, his acknowledged frustration, his actions culminating with the Radnor event might indicate problems to come. He has stated his purpose is to create circumstances which would facilitate a confrontation with law enforcement. He's also stated he fears the police will shoot him.

    (you brought this up, so I will comment on it)

    Is there something wrong with expecting the police to actually know the laws they are hired to enforce? Is it not a wise thing to think the police may harass someone for doing something legal when there are many examples of such, and to be prepared for it... say by having voice recorders to prove they are doing something illegal?
    We are not allowed to protect ourselves from such behavior from our employees? To insist that they actually do their jobs correctly? (I am not bashing cops, don't even try to go there)
    I have, actually, read some of his other posts on other forums. His reasoning for painting the tip orange was a very logical one to me.... he didnt want the cops to shoot him. Is he crazy or stupid for not wanting to be shot?

    You might want to google "open carry incident" for many examples of proof that Police Have harassed and arrested people for NOT breaking ANY laws.
    So, with that in mind, he is a bad man and we should rebuke him and all he has done to try to show others that there is something wrong with the way Innocents are being treated?

    I myself have stated here that I don't particularly approve of how he went about this, but I at least have the common courtesy to allow him to practice his Constitutional rights the way he see's fit. Who are you or I to rebuke, attack, or yell at someone
    WHO DID NOT BREAK ANY LAWS OR INFRINGE ON ANYONE ELSE'S RIGHTS?

    *Rant Off*

    Yes, for your purpose, your agenda, none of that has relevance. But it is important to tie in the other facts surrounding Mr. Embody so no one is mislead into believing Mr. Embody is a pure 2nd Amendment issue. He is not and has stated such in his posts.

    Thank you, you are quite correct here, He is also sticking up for our 1st Amendment rights too, and at times, the 4th and 5th Amendments. (like during possibly illegal detainments and such)


    Ignoring the totality of Mr. Embody's circumstances is like saying your posts in this thread paint a complete picture of your character.

    I was ignoring his other actions and posts because they are exactly that, other actions and other posts. We are discussing this one incident only. If you desire to have a discussion on what he has done other times, you can start another thread, no-one is stopping you or anyone else from doing so. There may even be a possibility that I wont comment on one or even all of those threads! Wouldn't that be nice?

    I do honestly thank you for your post.
    Have a great day!

    A citizen who shirks his duty to contribute to the security of his community is little better than the criminal who threatens it.

    I'm willing to bet, that if you had never heard about this guy before, and he had decided to stroll in front of your house, in your neighborhood, or near you kids school while you were dropping your kids off, that you would have been one of the 1st people to call the cops to check this guy out.

    I highly doubt you would have done nothing, and just said "Hey there's a guy just exercising his Constitutional rights"


    Just because he has a RIGHT to do it, does not negate the personal desire to make sure he's in compliance of the law and/or not up to something else.

    Hmm, that's legally considered a pistol, and you have a license to carry. Be careful!

    I went over there and read it. I see that he wrote nearly the same thing that I have been writing (what he did was 100% legal) so what is your point?

    "It is OUR complacency that has got us to where we are today, with such a negative attitude toward guns. We hide our guns from the public so as not to scare them. Our children can't even utter the word "gun" in some schools at the risk of being expelled. The more we try to play nice by their rules, the more restrictive their rules get. THAT is how the 2A could ultimately be repealed".
    ( I copied that from another thread on this forum )


    This is what it is like now because we (gun-owners) have been too timid and fearful to stand up for ourselves for far too long. Some of us are SOOOOOOOOOOO scared of what the "sheeple" might think, or what some Bimbo on a newscast might say, that they freak out when anyone does something in a way they don't like or wouldnt do themselves.

    Now, when someone DOES stand up for OUR rights, nearly everyone attacks him.

    Way to go! that will show him not to act like a free man!! We won! We crushed his freedom of expression! we shut him up by banning him, we are so brave! Yay us!!! woohoo!

    Hurry now, go apologize to every liberal you see, tell them we won't let it happen again, we'll be good masssah! but please, don't beat us no moe!!!!!

    Now we can go back to grovelling at the feet of our betters, begging them for crumbs of what we have given up in the past, pleading for them not to take anything else away from us.... afraid if any of us makes too loud of a squeak, that we will lose the little crumbs we are hiding behind now..........
    shhhhhhh little ones.......... don't rock the boat.......... be good little children. all is well.... all is well......
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I swear, that is exactly how most of you have come across to me, a bunch of apologists with jello for backbones.


    However, I sincerely thank the ones who are defending our rights.



    I AM AN AMERICAN , I AM PROUD TO STAND UP FOR WHAT IS RIGHT!!!!!!
    I WILL NOT BE SILENT WHEN OUR RIGHTS ARE BEING TRAMPLED ON!!!!


    Deal with it. (and telling me to shut up does not qualify)

    I AM NOT ASHAMED OF BEING A GUN OWNER

    For someone who doesn't like being called names, you sure do your fair share of it.

    Other than this war-of-words, what do you do everyday to secure the foundation of the 2nd Amendment? What do you do to educate those who do not understand the 2nd Amendment?

    Why do you feel it necessary to demean, insult, berate those who acknowledge Mr. Embody's right to carry an AK pistol, but do not approve of his methodology? Why are the abusive words necessary? Is this how you communicate with your coworkers. What kind of work do you do?
