    Veteranís Rights Violated and Then Arrested For Legally Open Carrying

    Mack Worley, an Air Force veteran, was practicing his second amendment right this past Saturday when things took a turn for the worse. Worley served 5 years and 9 months in the Air Force before being medically discharged, and has now taken up being a second amendment activist in his town of Vancouver, Washington.

    Watch his story below:
    The only easy day was yesterday
    Dedicated to my brother in law who died
    doing what he loved being a Navy SEAL

    Veteran’s Rights Violated and Then Arrested For Legally Open Carrying

    Thank you for posting this! I live literally a block from where this took place. I am a security patrol officer and have worked with several of these officers personally. I have responded to alarms with Officer Hernandez before and she has a serious attitude problem. I hope something comes of this that changes her outlook on the public she and the other officers are supposed to serve. Most of the other VPD officers I have met do not have any issue with open carry as I open carry regularly and have talked with them while doing so. Albeit that was only with handguns. The scary black rifle strikes again.

  5. Man, it sound like he had a bad day with the police, but I hope he take it to court and the officer get edcation.

    If the property owner/operator/agent asked him to leave and he didn't, then it is tresspassing, but it has to be the property owner/operator/agent that asks him to leave - police are not authorized to act on behalf of the property owner. I am curious as to what this "trespassing with a weapon capable of producing bodily harm" is, because I can't find any such thing in Revised Code of Washington. This is what his defense to trespassing is going hinge upon:

    RCW 9A.52.090
    Criminal trespass — Defenses.
    In any prosecution under RCW 9A.52.070 and 9A.52.080, it is a defense that:
    (1) A building involved in an offense under RCW 9A.52.070 was abandoned; or
    (2) The premises were at the time open to members of the public and the actor complied with all lawful conditions imposed on access to or remaining in the premises; or
    (3) The actor reasonably believed that the owner of the premises, or other person empowered to license access thereto, would have licensed him or her to enter or remain; or
    (4) The actor was attempting to serve legal process which includes any document required or allowed to be served upon persons or property, by any statute, rule, ordinance, regulation, or court order, excluding delivery by the mails of the United States. This defense applies only if the actor did not enter into a private residence or other building not open to the public and the entry onto the premises was reasonable and necessary for service of the legal process.
    Anyone who says, "I support the 2nd amendment, BUT"... doesn't. Element of Surprise: a mythical element that many believe has the same affect upon criminals that Kryptonite has upon Superman.

    I think there is lots of overreaction on this forum on both sides. I think we are way too quick to throw our 100% support behind the subject, and on the other side way to quick to condemn him as a "moron". Seems like some people find it very difficult to have an intelligent, moderate discussion. There are three sides to every story - the "prosecution", the "defense", and the truth which is somewhere in between.

    A right is a right. It is not subject to the opinions and stupidity of others.
