What would make me nervous about guns? Kids high on kat at checkpoints carrying AK-47s; that would. A guy in my martial arts class – we study gun defenses, thus study real guns –waving a pistol around like it was a Twinkie; that did. (I shut him down immediately, BTW.) But being in the same room with an Afghan war vet who has his pistol legally concealed and is sitting peaceably? Not so much. But, sooommmmeeee people.
Check this video from an Oak Harbor, Washington, City Council meeting. It is a bit long, though you should watch the entire thing, so here is a synopsis. It does not say what the comment period is about, but the citizen making comment disagrees with some prior comments and says we should teach children how to be safe around guns. He then says that he carries all the time. Go to 2:08 to hear the absolutely silly remarks by one of the council members. At about 2:30, the Mayor asks the City Attorney for an opinion on questioning the citizen. The CA says there is not requirement for the citizen to answer. However, being an honorable and truthful man, he does at 3:06 in a spectacular way. From then on, we see a glimpse of the mind of a coward and nascent tyrant. The Mayor then makes an incisive query of the CA and follows with a stunning statement regarding rights of citizens and duties of elected officials.
An elected official who get it.
