1. His presence at the mike, knowing he was armed, and by the looks of him, would've worried me no end;An Oak Harbor City Council Member is accused of overstepping his authority when he asked a man with a concealed weapons permit to surrender his gun saying it was "not needed" at the public meeting.
Lucas Yonkman went to the meeting to listen to a discussion about the city's gun ban in public parks. He ended up testifying, urging people to support the 2nd amendment.
Watch what happened above. The councilman's concern about the veteran's concealed weapon begins about two minutes into the video.
2. The interim city attorney was wrong, in that he said questions were for council only. If said gun holder had been carrying an unconcealed machine gun into city council, would the interim city attorney still decide that questions were ONLY for council?
3. The concealed gun-owner's second appearance at the mike would've scared the living sh*ts out of any bystander. I expected him to shoot the place down any second. Both his speeches were ignorant and totally incoherent.
4. The council rejected the mayor's call. Contrary to birthers who treat any vote against their wishes as treason and non and anti-American, I'd just say the council voted that way, agree or not and let it go.
