So much for owning and carrying guns in the freedom state of Texas.

Hiking with your rifle is fishing for attention? What did he do that's illegal?

Well, from what the article says, it sounds like he'll eventually be getting a fat wad of cash. Would be interesting to hear the police's side of the story, and what was going through their head at the time, and why they did what they did.

Isn't open carry illegal in TX? The rifle in front of him rather than across his back COULD (could, not is, will, or should) be seen as a type of open-carry. Plus the article says he had a .45 with him. Concealed or not?

Now, without watching any video (because I don't need to; I won't be on the jury anyway), the resisting arrest stuff could cause the police problems if he wasn't. But Texas laws, from what I know, aren't all that open in regards to open carry.

It'll be interesting to see what happens.

"Open carry" or lack thereof only applies to handguns in Texas. Perfectly legal to carry rifles or shotguns in the open.

That isn't going to stop some dip**** cop from trying to cause a scene if he so desires.

Yeah, we know, you are one of those types of "good" citizens who will let anybody steamroll over your rights.

If black people were like you, they'd still be riding in the back of the bus.

As military former guy, this guy is not to smart. A office approaching you with a gun slung at your chest level or ready, is not smart.

no matter what he thought of his RKBA arms. Any half dim-wit should understand that's a bad posture to be in.

For those of you who have slung a rifle professionally, let me pose two questions.

When carrying your rifle via sling, in a non-hostile environment how do you carry your rifle?

When carrying your rifle via sling, in a hostile environment how do you carry your rifle?

Honest answers please.

Q: Can I carry a firearm on my person?

A: Yes, with proper licensing (Concealed Handgun License) you may carry a pistol or revolver on your person so long as it remains concealed. Long guns (rifles / shotguns) do not have to be concealed, but must be carried in a manner not calculated to cause alarm, and do not require a license. --http://www.texasgunlaws.org/
Now, I absolutely love the AR rifle platforms, and there should be absolutely nothing illegal about them. But carrying one slung across your chest in a ready position with a mag in the well and walking down a publicly traveled and accessible roadway (as opposed to, say, out on hunting ground) could very easily be construed as a manner calculated to cause alarm.

Of course it could. The internet is full of tough guys who would dispute that from the safety of their recliner. However, let them be at the local mall with their family when one of the loons strolls in with his AR at the ready and you will see them scurrying away with everyone else thinking "whats wrong with that guy".

Can you cite Texas law that would back up that opinion?

It's NOT an opinion, it's a matter of law. Google is an astonishing tool....

Gotta agree. He was NOT "hiking".....he was walking down a public access road with the weapon in the "ready" position. And why only PART of the vid? I'd like to see the whole thing. Or did he only take a vid of the part where HE says his rights are violated?. This jerk gives us a bad name, when he is obviously looking for his "15 min of fame".

The entire thing was filmed by the son, as planned. He edited it to show his father in as favorable a light as possible.

He's an activist who staged a confrontation.
Now he's crafting a tale to seek support.
