Only in Alamogordo do you get a ticket for brass knuckles and a settlement for having a gun at the movies.

I think your reply to Ms. Moore was a bit flip. It takes a majority to vote on statutes regarding criminal behavior. Your subjective opinion on your personal agenda makes a given subject anathema, although you are in the minority. If the majority of people voted to make open carry illegal, then the statutes would have been changed accordingly. Brass knuckles aren't carried regularly by people as a form of self-defense. You could argue that guns aren't carried by the majority of the population, but I would counter that the majority voted to allow the practice. Your argument could also apply to switchblades, saps, or a roll of quarters. My point: get people to lobby your legislator to submit a bill to support your agenda; if it carries, then it will become law. Vote! Otherwise, demonizing lawful behaviors in public forums without proposing viable solutions will only get you grief. Given that, I wholeheartedly have no problem with healthy/civil debates on the merits of legalizing brass knuckles if that's your preferred mode of self-protection.

I didn't state what my position was or demonize anything. I would think that there would be some outrage on the part of 2nd amendment defenders in this area.

Perhaps. Your original statement said "only in Alamogordo". Actually that statute and those circumstances would apply throughout the state. Being that, my conclusion is that you think Alamogordo is somehow extraordinary in legal practices. I don't think so. The incident in the theater was overblown and the officers overextended their mandate, for that a price had to be paid. Anyone caught walking around with brass knuckles would be prosecuted -- the same results would occur throughout the state. As far as I'm concerned, 2nd Amendment is intended for defense of home, life, family, and country; the only difference is that a vocal population has grown out of that incident to let people know that guns aren't evil and that people have a right to defend themselves using legal means. Use of a firearm to illegally intimidate or threaten someone would be prosecuted, and with my full blessing. When you said you thought there would be outrage amongst 2nd Amendment supporters, I take it that you view them, as a group, as reactionary and combative. That's a bit simplistic. In my experience, people who carry guns are more diplomatic than others because they realize the great power/responsibility they carry in their pocket and try to avoid situations that can escalate to a bad ending.

I seem to see this cat's name in the logs on a semi-weekly basis. What's his story? Why isn't he still in jail?

How can that be? Ms. Rodriguez issued citation for child running lose and a six yr. old child leaves school grounds while under care of teachers or school personnel and no citation.

Heh, that's an interesting point. Perhaps the school personnel would be more careful if they were fined (either the school or the teacher) when children disappear from their care.
