Prosecutors say no charges will be filed against a man who was arrested after causing a weapons scare during the Democratic convention.
Joseph Calanchini of Pinedale, Wyo., was arrested on suspicion of unlawfully carrying a weapon on Aug. 23. Police say he had two hunting rifles and two pistols in a case when he tried checking in to the Denver hotel where House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was staying.
Pelosi was evacuated.
Denver DA's spokeswoman Robin Finegan said today police never presented the case to prosecutors. Police did not immediately have additional information.
Calanchini has said he didn't know about the convention or that Pelosi was at the hotel.
He says he's relieved the case is closed but he hasn't gotten his guns back.
Anybody want to guess how many zeros will be in the final settlement check?
Anybody know the name of the hotel where this happened - as I remember, it was a front desk clerk who called police in the first place - AFTER checking him in... I think neither they, nor that chain (if any), deserve my business.

Better to die on your feet, than to live on your knees.
That's the most forum-friendly term I can think of.
Did he ever state why he had the firearms?

I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

Like custom guns and stuff? Check this out...
He was on a business trip, and had some gunsmithing and scope mounted on his hunting rifles while there.... where he "normally' got things done.
They were just doing the "legal dance" until the convention was over, detaining him in the process, and then let him go after it's all over.
Can we spell L-A-W-S-U-I-T ? I'm not sure how many constitutional rights they stepped on, but it sure seems like a bunch of them.
He had taken his guns to a local gunsmith in preparation for a hunting trip (to Africa, IIRC)
Not surprising. The convention is long done with, and there is little else to be done but let the story fade to oblivion.No charges for man with guns at Pelosi's DNC hotel

How do the judges always throw out ignorance of the law is no excuse,I think that should apply to the guys that are hired and trained to enforce the law

"Run for your life from the man who tells you that money is evil. That sentence is the leper's bell of an approaching looter. So long as men live together on earth and need means to deal with one another-their only substitute, if they abandon money, is the muzzle of a gun."
