The 2nd Amendment: A Free Pass to Arrest
posted on July 31, 2013 byOnan Coca

The 2nd Amendment is not usually a touchy subject for those of us on the right. In fact, most conservative Republicans would argue that there shouldn’t be much of a debate over our right to bear arms.

While we often engage in debate with the liberal anti-gun left, amongst ourselves, we generally find the solace of like-minded brotherhood.

However, that kinship can be strained when we discuss what can be perceived as overbearing law enforcement.

In our high tech digital age, cameras are a ubiquitous part of our daily lives, and we all have had to learn to get used to their intrusion. As a former teacher, I was daily on edge, waiting for the sneaky student with the cell phone camera looking to catch me make a mistake or embarrass myself. Police Officers are learning the same kinds of lessons from “citizen journalists” all over the country, keeping their cellphones at the ready in case something needs to be recorded.

In this day and time, I do not blame police for wanting to know why a man walking down the road with a young boy is weaponed up like he's going to combat. What was he afraid of the mean old cowsout in the pasture field? Would look suspicious to me too. I would want to know who and what they were doing in front of my house, how about you?

I think people are just looking for something to say their rights are being violated. I have seen folks on my road with guns before and wondered why they had a gun. It is a crazy world out there.

If I was walking through your neighborhood with that type and amount of weapons and you called the police, it would certainly not be a surprise to me. I would cooperate as much as possible and tell the police I appreciate them doing a good job. You're also right about the Rights thing, having them, and abusing them, are two different things.

Texas Gov. Perry fatally shoots coyote
By Associated Press
Wednesday, April 28, 2010

AUSTIN -- Pistol-packing Texas Gov. Rick Perry has a message for wily coyotes out there: Don't mess with my dog.

Perry (R) told the Associated Press on Tuesday that he needed just one shot from the laser-sighted pistol he sometimes carries while jogging to take down a coyote that menaced his puppy during a February run near Austin.

Perry said he carries his .380 Ruger -- loaded with hollow-point bullets -- when jogging on trails because he is afraid of snakes. But when a coyote came out of the brush toward his daughter's Labrador retriever, Perry charged.

"Don't attack my dog, or you might get shot ... if you're a coyote," he said Tuesday.

He is living in a private house in a hilly area southwest of downtown Austin while the Governor's Mansion is being repaired after a 2008 fire. Perry, who holds a concealed-handgun permit, carries the pistol in a belt.

He said he was jogging without his security detail shortly after sunrise when the coyote focused on the dog.

Perry said the laser pointer on his gun helped make a quick, clean kill. "It was not in a lot of pain," he said. "It pretty much went down at that particular juncture."

Perfectly good explanation of a common sense use of a gun and a good reason for the practice of carrying one. Did'nt need an assault rifle to protect his dog, good job Governor. People that want to go on hikes through other people's neighborhoods geared up with weapons like their on patrol in Afghanistan are just trying to play GI Joe

I carry a gun when I walk for protection from animals, snakes or people if I had to, but I sure don't flaunt it.
