    What's the duct tape for?

    Duct tape is a common item in a "rape kit" carried by a sexual predator for restraining victims. Perfectly legal, no restrictions on its possession or use, but do you see my point? In certain circumstances, it raises questions as to the possessors motives and behavior.

    I was messing with you. Looks like one of my "smiles" didn't make it in the post.

    Kwikrnu's story has thoroughly convinced me that states need to enact additional legislation to allow for the prosecution of people for "being stupid." I don't think I can be even slightly tactful when commenting on this story. People like me have worked hard lobbying legislators to reduce gun restrictions on law abiding citizens. Most of you probably are unaware of the difficulties we often face when trying to convince lawmakers to enact legislation which allows for greater freedoms when a great number of our fellow citizens are in favor of increased restrictions on the possession and ownership of firearms. In many cases it takes years to convince a single lawmaker that voting for a certain piece of legislation is the right thing to do. In this case, we have a bonehead who chooses to push the limits of the law by exceeding the generally defined limits of common sense and good judgment. I am certain that when Tennessee lawmakers changed the law to allow for open and concealed carry in state parks they didn't have in mind some nut-job carrying an AK. Anyone with a shred of common sense should realize that such a controversial weapon is unnecessary for personal protection in all but the rarest of circumstances and certainly out of place on a hiking trail. It is quite possible that Kwikrnu's poor judgment may cause lawmakers to reconsider laws allowing for greater freedoms, and in some cases repeal them.
    As law abiding citizens we owe it to ourselves and others to exercise common sense and good judgment while we enjoy our liberties. Otherwise the government which already doesn't trust its citizens may take away those liberties.
    We have made some real progress in recent years, some examples of the types of state laws passed include: Castle Doctrine Protections, Protections for employees who keep weapons in their vehicles on employer property, restrictions eased or eliminated as to where weapons can be carried, as well as legislation allowing for concealed carry in some states where the right was previously denied. The poor judgment and idiotic behavior of only a few, or even one, can undo a lot of hard work and progress made.

  8. [QUOTE=PascalFleischman;104579]Basically, it's none of your damned business if he has 31 rounds or 310. There's no law defining excessive, it's just your opinion. There were no limits to test. The law is the law.

    I would have no issue with this if he had just fought it out privately, perhaps with a well-placed letter to the police, a letter to the editor, or a personal rebuttal to the sensationalist local news. My beef is the fact that he's running around with a gun painted in the same way toys are, and he's been on every internet forum with "gun" in its name bragging (??) about the instance.

    He is an attention whore, plain and simple. This is not how a 2A advocate behaves.

    Furthermore, 2A advocates don't go around second-guessing each other regarding what each person decides to carry, so long as they are within the law.[/QUOTE

    Take it easy dude its just one mans opinion . I'm going to step out now it ant worth it ..

    As a motorcycle rights advocate, I follow your point exactly..
    As if pulling a stunt like this is bad enough
    Then not getting the news to correct their information
    Then after being told on multiple forums (I'm sure) that this behavior is NOT helpful to the cause
    He has another brain attack and gets the idea that I should go wonder around town for an hour and half..
    Go to town if you need to.. But by his own statements (went by the police station several times, and by the courthouse), he had no business in town.. So IF having a orange AK 47 totin' in camo is not suspicious enough.. Let's have him just wander around with no real intended direction, like he is waiting for something to spring into action..

    He obviously does NOT really care about the cause.. because if he did.. He would listen to people like GregAllen who has been in the REAL trenches for some time and knows how to really move things forward for all of us..

    Greg - Thank you for your service..

    kwikrnu - for the benefit of all law abiding gun owners, everywhere. Stop what you are doing, take your passion (assuming it's passion and not just a deep need for attention because your mommy didn't hug you enough) and talk with someone like GregAllen and ask what you can REALLY do to help the cause...

    Kwikrnu,
    Have you considered cross dressing while packing that orange AK? Dressing up like Dolly Parton will get you even more attention.
    I need to tell you, your actions are not helping the cause. Being flamboyant is not working.

    I feel that this quite nicely sums it up. Whether something is legal or not is a simply a matter of written words, and often has little bearing on either common sense or good judgement. Lord knows there are a lot of gun laws out there that are written with neither! Whether or not a person's action and behavior is in good judgement is a matter of, well, judgement. Your actions and behavior will always be judged by those around you. If your behavior goes outside of the realm of what is generally acceptable to those around you, whether legal or not, you may be persecuted. You may also be prosecuted, again, regardless of the law. Being persecuted/prosecuted can be costly - sometimes to all of us.
