It's OK, they put him in the toy jail.

I'll go out on a climb here and suggest carrying a toy gun had little to do with this citizen, hero being arrested.

Then again I could be wrong. The police could just be violating his rights again......

Except there isn't much money to be made by being wrong......maybe sell the movie rights to lifetime, or OWN?

The mistake many people make is to think, "hey, how did these idiots think they were helping gun rights?"

That assumes they are pro-gun activists.

I am seriously convinced that many of these people are anti-gun activists, acting as "agents provocateur" - the "false flag" so popular with the conspiracy nuts. Sort of like the 60's, when the feds had people mixed in with the hippies and civil rights types to try and turn protests into riots and make them look bad to the public. It's a very effective way of getting your message across. Honestly, we should be doing the same to the anti-gunners.

Maybe I'm becoming a conspiracy nut, but when the most visibly effective anti-gun message is consistently coming from a handful of people claiming to be pro-gun, something doesn't smell right. You don't go out of your way to create a negative image of gun owners in front of the very people about to vote on a pro-gun law, unless you want them to vote anti-gun.

Bren, think about it.

There's no shortage of selfish idiots in the world.
This is just an example of one more type.
No conspiracy needed.

Regardless of the intention I think the result is all too often all too obvious.

This clown is a habitual offender and should have spent more time in the klink for his felony charge. Should be interesting to see what happens with this.
What a tool.

I've had these same thoughts for a while. Since it is a political issue, it's not too awfully hard to think that anti-politicians would love to use these types of circumstances to push through their agenda......so these circumstance 'appear' for their use.

True....some may be truly legit....however, politics are involved, so anything can/will happen.....thus Occam's Razor most likely isn't going to apply.

The two most vocal OC advocates in Texas are both convicted criminals who cannot legally obtain a Texas CHL. Unfortunately we cannot legally deny them their 1st amendment rights and are stuck with their antics.

Been saying this for quite some time.
No different than the libertarian Candidates being nothing more than Democrats in disguise set up for the sole purpose of siphoning off republican votes.

False Flags both of em.

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.
