    Yep. It's amazing to me how many people want to pick and choose which rights are important. They fail to realize that they were included in the Bill Of Rights exactly because they are all important.

    Not quite. He was wearing a 'flight-type' jacket.... authorized wear for certin services in specific jobs and locals.... but he was in civies and wearing that particular jacket out of uniform may or may not be authorized depending on his Commanders orders.

    Active duty personal are NOT allowed to wear their uniforms or uniform 'items' at political rallies and such, but I don't think that fourm in the video would constitute that.

    I think he either is a vetern no longer active duty OR an active-duty service member just wearing his jacket. He said he's a vetern so I'm assuming he's not active-duty any longer.

    Good for him. It says a lot when the people of Chicago come out in force like that.

    Lee Goodman (Stop Concealed Carry Coalition, the guy dressed in all black) is a very good example of the progressive left view of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

    Only people that are in my social class and political beliefs have rights. People in other social classes and differing political beliefs don’t need rights because my social class is has the only rational and intellectually correct view and therefore we will tell the others how to live their life.

    I believe that the progressive left’s objective is to overturn the 2nd Amendment. They know that they cannot succeed using the procedure defined in the Constitution so they attempt to regulate it to the point that they have achieved their goal.

    Is “….shall not be infringed” in the 2nd Amendment any less clear than “Congress shall make no law….” in the 1st Amendment?

    They are standing up for our nation. The problem is, they are all overseas.

    The sheeple back home are screwing them while they are gone.

    The rest of us have to stand up. Write our Legislators - both state & federal. Demonstrate. Be vocal. We have to counter this administrations propaganda machine.

    I wonder how many of these "stop concealed acrry" people have ever had a knife to their throat, come home to a ransacked house, been robbed at gunpoint, or had a family member hurt by some thug. They live in a bubble until someone or something forces them to confront the reality that some people are capable of terrible things. Protect yourself or become a victim.
