Rights Have Responsibilities.

Posted on the 26 April 2014 by Mikeb302000
I've been wanting to do a post about why I don't believe that the "pro-gun" position in the US really isn't pro-gun.   It isn't "pro-gun" to encourage, or condone, irresponsible behavior which reflects badly on gun owners.  Meleanie Hain was one of these people: yet you adored her.
But, that point is lost on gunloons since they are not the responsible gun owner.  I'll admit that I still do posts to irritate you lot and let you know that not only do I not find your arguments persuasive:  I'm still around and speaking out.
Which more people need to do after this case where a man in Georgia openly intimidated people:
Parents at a Forysth County (GA.) park abruptly stopped a children's baseball game after growing suspicions of the behavior of a man carrying a gun in a waist holster Tuesday night.
  "He's just walking around [saying] 'See my gun? Look, I got a gun and there's nothing you can do about it.' He knew he was frightening people. He knew exactly what he was doing," said parent Karen Rabb.
  Rabb told Channel 2’s Tom Regan the parents grew so alarmed that they brought the game to a halt when the man declined a request that he leave a parking lot overlooking the baseball field.
  “He scared people to the point where we stopped the game, took the kids out of the dugout and behind the dugout, and kind of hunkered down,” Rabb said.
  Park users flooded 911 with 22 calls about the man. Forysth County deputies questioned the man, and found that he had a permit for the handgun. Authorities said since the man made no verbal threats or gestures, they could neither arrest him nor ask him to leave the park.
Nothing like stupid laws that allow loutish behavior to turn people against you.
And, no matter what you say, parading around with firearms is intimidation, which is why NRA officials in more sensible times said they did not approve of such conduct.
But, keep it up, it only helps the "pro-gun" side look like a bunch of idiots.
