Advocates flaunt their guns to support rifle-totin' teen

7 hrs ago

On April 13, a high school student named Sean M. Combs walked through downtown Birmingham, Michigan, with an M-1 rifle strapped to his back - apparently just because he thought he could legally. He was arrested, though, and charged with brandishing a weapon, obstructing police, and disturbing the peace - accusations that have local gun advocates, uh, up in arms. On Monday, they marched, carrying guns, into the city's commission chambers to protest the charges against the 18-year-old, arguing that Combs has legal right, under "open carry" laws, to carry a firearm in public. Police Chief Don Studt conceded that Combs was exercising his constitutional right, but said he was also "creating a disturbance."

Was HE causing the disturbance, or was it everyone around him?

Maybe his presence was "disruptive". Someone might be "offended".

I can completely understand the feeling a cop gets when you have to approach someone that has a high powered rifle strung over his shoulder,Proceed with Caution but know the law on Open Carry.I belive in our rights to carry but if a cop asks you to identify yourself because he has a concern about who this person might be,IMO you should have to identify yourself and put the officer at ease.

I agree.. Have nothing to hide, you should comply

But would a criminal be stupid enough to open carry an illegal weapon?

I THINK THE DISTURBANCE THAT HE WAS CAUSING WAS MOST LIKELY PEOPLE BEING SCARED OF A KID CARRYING A RIFLE. THAT'S THE PROBLEM GUNS HAVE BECOME SOMETHING HORRIBLE IN TODAYS WORLD. IF THIS WAS BACK IN THE DAY SEEING SOMEONE WALK AROUND WITH A RIFLE WAS LIKE SEEING SOMEONE WALK AROUND HAMMER ITS A TOOL IN THE WRONG HANDS IT CAN BE A WEAPON BUT SO CAN ANYTHING.
