Exactly. That is the problem.If am engaging in a legal activity, I don't really care what someone thinks.
You should respect his right to promote his own views, no matter how distasteful or anti Constitutional.If they are offended then they can try to change it like the rest of us. Ted Kennedy thinks that all guns should be outlawed. Am I to respect the wishes of a wacko senator because he is offended that I have a means of protection and just disregard the fact that it's legal?
Again, it is a matter of mature behavior. If the sheriff acted poorly that does not excuse someone else's bad behavior. Yes, offending others is bad behavior and though sometimes necessary, should not be condoned. In this case, the sheriff offending the men does not give license for them to offend the public. A better course would have been to write a letter to his boss, or if an elected position, to support a new sheriff and promote his campaign. That is positive. Making a scene is negative.Ain't happening. You got to know where to draw the line. The Sheriff in question offended those men by making some rash statements. Why is OK to offend them, but if they counter some are offended.
Donut! Sorry, it just seemed funny to me.It doesn't make sense, but much of what liberals think donut.
I've been accused of a lot of things, but having a liberal thought process was never one of them.Same ole tired liberal thought process.
I just think the tactics used by these open carry demonstrations hurt our cause and encourage the to more actively seek gun control laws. There are far better ways to educate the public than to, as someone else wrote, 'to rub their noses in it.'
I respectfully dissent.
