    I suggest that Kwikrnu put the AK away until there is an appropriate place for him to show up cross dressed with an orange AK ...

    ... when is the next official State Dinner at the White House ??

    HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL!

    Well, I have read all the posts to this point and cannot keep silent on this.

    1: Most all of you need to stop badgering this man, he has the legal right to do what he did, period.

    2: His right to do something does not hinge on your approval of it.

    3: I am reminded of the FUDS who spout "those people don't need assault weapons, but my shotgun/hunting rifle is fine"

    4: What makes ANY of you better than this man, at least he did something, most of you dont even have big enough balls to open carry in your own house with the curtains closed, much less in public.

    See, wasn't that uncalled for and impolite (#4) how do you like being called on your own behavior? Have I upset you? good, get over it and mind your own manners/business and allow each of us to exercise our God-given inalienable rights the way WE OURSELVES see fit without being chastised for it.

    Most of the posters chastising this man make me sick to think YOU are gun-owners, I consider that YOU are the ones giving the us a bad name.

    HOW DARE YOU presume you have the right to tell someone else how they may exercise their rights !!!!!!!!

    I have mixed feeling on this one. On one hand who's to say this guy is a nut job? I almost envy his moxy. Not to mention, he was "ABSOLUTELY" within his LEGAL rights to do what he did. I only wish I could OC anything in SC!

    On the other hand, I think he made some mistakes; carrying an AK and disguising it to look like a toy being the biggest ones!

    To the OP- I think your reasoning to paint the tip of the barrel orange was most likely done as to upset the sheeple as little as possible. BUT! If you're a proponent of OC, would you not want to let everyone know you're carrying a REAL gun?

    Being a "Proponent" of OC, I think why not just carry a handgun in a OWB or shoulder holster. Besides that; why not dress in regular "street" or "hiking" clothes?

    I have not gone through the entire thread, so forgive me if you've addressed the above questions.

    I also see this act similar to what the perv's do in SanFran and anywhere else there allowed to display there lifestyle. FORCING a "controversal" lifestyle on the general populous of sheeple is at best ill advised. It could also have a detrimental affect on the ENTIRE" pro-gun movement!

    To sum things up:
    I feel the police were absolutely justified in questioning him AND really did their job well. That being said; my MIL lives in Brentwood and I might like to OC with this guy next time I visit; as long as we will limit OC to street garb and our "carry" handguns.

    First let me bid you welcome..
    It seems you do not have an issue with stating your opinion.. Good for you.. Add one more opinion to the mix - Not worth more or less than anyone elses.. even the ones that make you sick..

    #2/#4 - Great.. Oh, man, I'm glad you posted.. I've been concealed carrying in my house for while, and have just been waiting for your permission to open carry in my house..
    maybe 2011, I'll go Open carry with the blinds cracked!!! OOoooohhh I can feel the excitement already!!!

    As for your MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS comment.. I, nor any of the other "responders", was the one that posted to every gun board on the planet.. If you post, you will get comments and should expect both positive and negative feedback from such a stunt.. So, actually I believe WE are minding our business. Our Gun business and not wanting to loose ground on the gains we have made in the past few years, especially with the present political climate!!!

    I DO presume to tell someone else how to exercise their rights (that would be the 1st amendment) (Especially on a forum, that's what it's for!!!) when they pull a stunt like this one. At the same time, I will back him up to the fullest extent of the law to be an Asshat.. There is a reason why the framers of the constitution put the amendments in a particular order.. HOW DARE YOU presume to try to suppress my 1st amendment right..

    YOU posting make me sick to think YOU are a gun-owner, but only believe in the 2nd amendment, but not the 1st..
    I consider that YOU are the one giving us a bad name.

    Once again.. welcome to the site.. No really.. I mean it.. Isn't it great to be able to have Freedom of Speech???
    America.. You got to love this country!!!

    A45, your first post is to tell us all to STFU? Way to make friends and influence people.

    Hey, pal, you post something here and ask for opinions, you're gonna get 'em, and some you're not gonna like. So, we can only express our opinion if it's the same as yours? I don't think so...

    Well, excuse me for thinking that "USA CARRY" has anything to do with the 2nd Amendment.

    #4 was sarcasm, get a clue.


    I am chastising those who are yelling at the OP that he is an idiot and he should not have done what he did.

    Dont try to change the subject and come at me to deflect attention from YOUR attack on his actions. By calling his actions a stunt, YOU are chastising and ridiculing him. (and now, in this latest post, you are attacking me) That is what I was pointing out. This is a forum to discuss things, not to attack people.

    I agree that you have that right with the 1st amendment, I just try not to ridicule or attack anyone (like you have here in this example). Your rights end when they infringe on anothers rights. Using words to attack someone else is considered assault. (yes, all of us have the right to say/type our opinions, but not to attack someone in the process)

    Please, enlighten us with facts, real sources (beside your opinion) on how what this man did hurt or set us back on what we have gained? Do you have scientific polls? Do you have any documented research on the matter that proves this? Or is this just your "FEELINGS" on the matter?I have no evidence otherwise, but you brought it up, so the burden of proof is yours to provide, not mine.

    BTW, Thank you for the welcome.

    HEY!!!

    You are 100% right,and I apologize. I should not have said STFU

    I let emotion get the better of me, I was ticked off that almost all the posts were attacking the guy for doing something totally legal and hardly anyone stuck up for that.

    Most of my post was sarcasm.. I have already stated why I think this is a "Stunt" and the "fact" that next he goes to town and wanders around for more than an hour and a half again indicates it is a "Stunt". I'm again not saying he doesn't have a right. But it sounds as if he really had not other business in town except to wander around with his gun, to see what attention he could attract.. I define that as a "stunt".. IF he had business in town, or was truly out JUST to enjoy the park, and he took his gun, that's one thing.. But that was not WHY he went to these places.. He went specifically to wander around with his bright orange gun and see what attention he could get.. ie: "stunt"

    The posted news reporting is all the proof you need that this is negative... and AS I stated before, he has given no indication that he has tried to correct any of the information put out from the media..

    So what is his goal.. Advancing the cause.. That may be his intent.. but you know what they say.. IF it quacks & walks like a duck, then it's probably a duck..
    If you go wandering around with a gun, with no real destination in mind, and you don't correct the media with there fact reporting.. THEN it's probably an attention getting stunt.. and if the reporting is all bad and not corrected, then it's probably NOT advancing the cause. Maybe.. but in this case.. many feel it is not.

    BTW - I was NOT being sarcastic with the welcome... It's great to have you here!!!
    Oh.. And Happy New Year!!!

    Oh and by the way.. I think WE have arrived...
