    "Rudely displaying" sounds like "strenuously objecting".

    Is that how it works? Hm? "Objection." "Overruled." "Oh, no, no, no. No, I STRENUOUSLY object." "Oh. Well, if you strenuously object then I should take some time to reconsider."

    His rifle carry is at the ready position.....not over the shoulder. What would his handgun carry at the ready position look like? I guess they (people who called the Police) did not like it and neither did the Police. I would say they both needed to take a step back and breath. If the gun guy was really dangerous, their car and windshield would have holes in them. I don't think the gun guy felt he was in danger or he would have unloaded on them. Just silly talk to me on video.

    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.

    Whatever, appeaser.

    I'll bet you're one of those who are first in line to register your gun too.

    WTF are you yapping about?

    :rofl:
     

  9. 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".

    Perhaps it is just me but the telephone call that precipitated the incident might suggest some level of alarm.

    Can you cite Texas law that would back up that opinion?
     
  13. It's NOT an opinion, it's a matter of law. Google is an astonishing tool....

    You should have posted that to begin with.

    So he was charged with Disorderly Conduct?

    Right, to a GlockTalk thread... Again, what is your point?

    That GT thread contains more information. Enough to answer the questions posed in this thread.
    Is it not always best to form an opinion using both the most information & knowledge?

  18. I'm getting the distinct impression someone may be banned from the CT section of the page.



    And no, I shouldn't have posted the law at all. You should research things if you're not sure of them, exactly like I did. I posted it to try and shut you up from being an arrogant dick, but there is apparently no cure at all for that affliction.

    I have a feeling that eventually a judge is going to shake his or her head and dismiss the case after giving the "perp" and the officers a lesson from the bench.
