What amazes me even more is that two people clicked the like button on a post that is 75% gibberish.
The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a
patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.
Haha, most 10th graders know where to put commas, an vs. a, proper use of ellipses, and how about not stringing together a bunch of clauses in a vain attempt to replicate a sentence. Not really the grammar police, but I agree with atctimmy - that post was really annoying to read.

There are some folks aching to get busted here. Cut it out, or you'll be sent to "Time Out". I am not in the mood to babysit. There are plenty of folks here that want to participate in a meaningful and thoughtful fashion, so if we can proceed that would just be peachy.
well what i have seen that many have missed. including the police officer. is his stop was actually LEGAL...if he had known the lay. this took place in Portland Oregon. i may currently live in texas but i am from Tigard oregon. the open carry laws may have changed since i was last there. But Oregon is considered an anomolous open carry state. meaning it is generally legal to open carry however towns, cities, and counties can have their own LOCAL open carry bans. Portland, Tigard, Beaverton, Oregon city, and Salem are all areas that have a local open carry ban in effect. so this law student, the police officer, and the supervisor all failed. if the police officer had known ALL the state and local law on open carry, when the lay student asked if he was suspected of commiting a crime, the officer should have responded with you are suspected with violating the local open carry ban.
the only way around this is. if you have a concealed handgun permit, you are exempt from LOCAL open carry bans. i emphisize the local because if the STATE its self does not allow open carry than it is illegal no matter what.
I'm betting the guy knew the open carry laws there.
