Rights violated? We report, you decide.

Open carry zealot in Houston walks around wearing a kilt and an AR-15 slung on his hip.  He refuses to give his name or ID when asked by a cop and of course is carrying a video camera.  Just watch the video.

It is sad that cops are so poorly trained/ignorant of the law.

There is no reason to stop/harass anyone engaged in what is clearly legal activity...even if "someone does call in about it".

Carrying guns in open is perfectly legal in Texas. And just because it may make some people "uncomfortable" does not make this guy a zealot/off base.


Anonymous said...

It really doesn't help anything when people set up cops like that. I mean, who would not suspect a guy in a kilt with an assault rifle? Their job is tough enough already without trying to embarrass them on the Internet just to show you can. No win situation.

Who would not?

YOU are part of the problem. The 'no win situation' is the result of your rush to suspect.

Classic example if a poorly-trained police officer. He had no right to even question the law-abiding citizen but once he did and the citizen refused, the knuckleheaded officer should have IMMEDIATELY told him he was free to go.

Just arrest the dumbass and let him sit in jail until he can ID himself. I support gun rights and own a lot wpns, but this bullshit of walking around with a AR15 is just stupid! Morons like this are just giving fuel to those that would disarm the public!

Sorry folks I am pro gun have been all my life and the AR-15 is one of my favorite weapons---that being said I have to ask what kind of ignorant prick in kilts would walk around with a weapon and no ID and refuse to say who he is---he could have been a terrorist---Cop showed incredible restraint probably should have tazed the dumb bastard to wake up whatever brain cells he had that were still living---Good job cop!!

Isis is chopping heads. F yes we should be asking questions when dumb Fs are walking around in skirts with assault riffles. If his skin was a shade darker none of you TP types would be defending him. You would proclaim our Christian heritage and call him a jihadist. But he looks like a redneck in a skirt so let's bash the cops. Really sad when we out our cops in this situation. God speed to them.

U. S Citizens are not required to carry ID's - with or without an assault rifle in their possession.

2:53 if you called 911 for police help and they did not respond I guarantee you would be raising HELL about it. It's idiots like you that make an officers job harder than it already is. It is their job to respond to citizen complaints regardless of the situation. Now grow up and live in the USA as a peaceful citizen or feel free to move to Africa.

And just exactly did the guy in the kilt accomplish besides showing his ass? Most people's problems are
self inflicted.

Anonymous said...

Using the police example in this video any citizen should be able to ask the police to ID people before they vote in order to prove they are not previously convicted felons.

Anonymous said...

So you think the officer should mind his own business until AFTER someone opens fire on a crowd of innocent bystanders? Just because a person has a freedom doesn't give them the right to "set up" a cop.

Anonymous said...

Lets start with law enforcement 101. What was the reasonable suspicion or probable cause for the police man to interact with the citizen. Did the officer say I recognize you as a felon I arrested last year? I think there is reasonable suspicion that you should not be in possession of that fire arm! No he did not. Houston Paid I would wager...

Dear Gawd,

If your up there and listening, please continue to provide coverage over this courageous soul spreading consciousness of 2nd amendment rights in this beautiful country of ours that is truly of the people, by the people, for the people, particularly and exclusively white people!

Because otherwise Fhather, this brave soldier in Krist should be dead from an illegal choke hold,shot dead in the open carry state of an Ohio Walmart for holding a toy gun, or even worse Jhesus shot while playing with an airsoft gun in a park within 2 seconds upon police arrival.

Life and Favor!

Bless this man's family also that through his temerity and recalcitrant nature that they never know loss, pain or suffering like so, so many others have with the fortuitousness of being born darkly pigmented like ERIC GARNER, JOHN CRAWFORD and TAMIR RICE!

Thank you in advance for the continuous protection of your 2nd chosen people!

The police officer has a valid point: without ID the police cannot know if this creep is allowed to as an AR 15 or is a felon. I would of guessed felon.

McDougal said...

The "creep" went through a Federal background check before he was allowed to purchase the weapon and obtain a open-carry permit. You left out part of the process. The cop would have known he most likely was not a felon if he was carrying the weapon openly.

Anonymous said...

11:53 Yes, comrade. We must produce our papers to the they can make sure we are not criminals or otherwise attempting to needlessly offend others. Clear and open engagement in legal activity could make comrades (and idiots) uncomfortable. We can not allow people to make others uncomfortable.

Please bend over now so we can see what you may be hiding from us. Surely, you will understand
the importance of your compliance. Of course, you will have no problem with this...if you are doing nothing wrong.

If you have nothing to hide, all will be well.

This stunt does not protect the rights of gun owners. It only inflames those who believe we should revoke those rights.

With such a nice assault weapon, he's lucky some thug didn't get him in a drive-by and take the weapon.

Let's face it. Any incompetent dumbass can be a cop.

It's no longer a respectable position.

Know Your Rights and Respect Mine said...

It is not the police department's business, responsibility or obligation to determine whether people are legally in possession of a firearm unless a crime has been committed.

The police have no right to detain, search or require ID of someone simply to find out who they are or to run a rabbit trail of determining right to be in possession of a firearm.

Here are the wrong reasons to detain:

1) I think I'll ask for his ID just so I can look at it.

2) For all I know he might be a felon.

3) For all I know he might be a jihadist.

4) He looks goofy as hell in a kilt.

5) He could be loony for all I know so I'm going to harass him to see if he goes ape shit on me.

6) A lot of people don't like guns that look like this one.

7) He doesn't look or dress like most people.

8) He might not be from 'round here.

9) Dressed like that, he could be queer for all I know.

10) The man in the kilt (as some of you have said) is obviously an ignorant, dumbass, prick in a kilt, showing his ass.

11:24 pm Try to be rational and not an overreacting fear monger.

There was no such thing as " probable cause" in Nazi Germany.

If the dude was black with baggie pants in an all white neighborhood or a skin head and was tatted with swastikas in a Jewish neighbor, that shouldn't be probable cause to be stopped and questioned carrying an assault rifle?
How about a guy with a tin foil hat talking ?

What if this dude showed up with 6 of his carrying buddies, all of whom looked like they were wearing costumes?

Any of that probable cause?

That's what you gun nuts have given us.

You can't do rational , you've got to be the polar extreme of the crazies who want no guns.

8:01 is the right wing equal of the idiots on the left who have caused us to have to wait until a crazy person hurts himself or others!

Keep it up!

Keep putting guns too powerful be controlled by children in their hands at rifle ranges and getting someone killed.

Keep thinking shooting is " therapeutic" for your crazy son or for a veteran with PTSD and ending up with children killed in a school or dead veterans!

That those with zero common sense are controlling our political dialogue is killing us...literally!

How about occasionally considering that the rest of us have a right to be protected from the irresponsible idiots in this country!?!

@ 8:17 from 11:24

My post was immersed in SARCASM meant for the obtuse, as the contextualization would be too great to comprehend.

You get the prize!

But what is lost on so many of you 5/5th humans that proselytize your constitutional rights through legislation, propaganda and street shows that why you enjoy the fullness of equal protection under the law and constitutional rights to bear arms, so, so many others have their basic human rights infringed upon daily - GARNER, CRAWFORD and 12 y/o TAMIR RICE.

So bear your arms, teach your children to shoot at the local gun range and stockpile your weapons in the basement in preparation for the holy war or the race war, as we've seen what happens when your children stop taking their Adderall or Ritalin-Klebold/Lanza/Holmes.

But dear Gawd if you are listening and the rest of us are worthy, there will be more 5/5ths like Jason Hendrix from the gold star open carry state of Kentucky?

Know Your Rights And Respect Mine said...

Some of you (8:55 for example) who are assigning the status of right wing nuts or idiot, bear watching. That you don't like the law is irrelevant.

As long as we are allowed to openly carry, you might just have to like it or lump it. The open carry statute doesn't just apply to rednecks in cammo with four wheelers tied in the back of a pickup. It also applies to the fellow in a kilt who carries no idea.

Don't like that? Take it up with your legislator. Although we are allowed to open-carry in this state, there is not yet any requirement that we dress a certain way and carry ID in order to exercise that right. And there is no requirement in this state (since we are no longer in the sixties) that we answer questions posed by a policeman when there is no reason for the stop or detention. Nor are we required to carry ID. Again; Don't like that? Get it changed, Harpie.

Do You Look Like Me? said...

8:17 asks: "What if this dude showed up with 6 of his carrying buddies, all of whom looked like they were wearing costumes?:

You mean sorta like seven white guys who show up at a chicken place in an all black neighborhood, 45s strapped on, dressed head to toe in cammo and orange, all wearing shades with a chaw in their cheek?

Would that qualify as seven guys in costumes, carrying, who need to be bounced outside, detained and questioned? I see.

Good grief!
Y'all are truly nuts!

We get to complain about laws that we think are stupid and try to persuade others. I don't have to limit my free speech to calling only upon my elected representatives.

I notice more than a few restaurants ( and other businesses) have had to put up " no open carry" or" no weapons" signs because so many of you gun idiots ( like this asshole) have zero notion of when or what is appropriate and like to needle others just to be aggravating.

Y'all are all about your right to be idiotic and don't for one minute think you have to respect or be considerate of anybody else! It's your way and the rest of the world can get over it.

It ain't happening.

Your idiocy( and the extreme left's) is keeping us from being practical or rational solutions to any f'ing thing!

You all have the right to be useless assholes who think carrying a gun openly makes your dick bigger, but I get to harp at you! And, to let you know I'm not fooled by your effort at machismo!

Thanks, OC zealots. Now, we have to lock our guns in the car like Luby's in Texas because you needed to shine your ass, "get a badge number" and post this crap on YouTube. You might as well go with the skirt and call yourself Nancy Pelosi. I ran into some OC psychos in Jackson. Camo vests on with Glocks and 1911s in all their glory.

First, you might want to assess your knowledge of the law. Posting a sign on a restaurant door does NOT remove the rights of the customer. Follow up on your misunderstanding, please.

Secondly, you're full of crap (already evident) if you think others will or should buy YOUR notion of what is right or appropriate. Who the hell are YOU?

MINDLESS SHEEP! In America the constitution gave powers to the federal gov. In the states their constitution gave rights to to state and local gov. Amendment X of the bill of rights says" The powers not delegated to the US by the constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people." That means ALL things are legal. now,since all things shouldn't be legal ,we the people have given the gov. The authority to take away some of those rights (our represenitives) . These are called laws. Laws take away our rights, The gov has been taking away our right for 230 odd years.
Now!! The open carry law gave us back (WOW) our right to amendment II of the "Bill of Rights".
This a--hole as some of you called him tested said law! ( I think he had balls) as I don't have the funds to lose this test.
The cop did not know the law even though said cop was (my opinion) pretty reasonable and kilt guy seemed to be uncooperative (a--hole).
Just remember ( anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. Also the Supreme Court says the police can lie to you.
So the law says you can walk the street with a AR-15 on your hip in Texas!
Whether your skin is Lilly white or charcoal black.
All this blathering you people are doing is irrelevant .
Remember: opinions are like assholes everybody has one and most of them stink!

Some of the people discussing this post don't know how our gov works. They think it makes sense to me but who said you had any sense your momma.

Unless he is breaking the law, the police have no right to ask for an ID whether he is carrying a corn dog or an AR-15. Read the constitution, knucklehead.

Oh, 11:35 is a member of the NRA. You and a million other people who got conned into sending in a donation in return for a window sticker for your truck.

Let's see now....the cop ordered the man to produce he could find out if he passed a background check? How would an ID show that? It wouldn't. But, you're a member of the NRA. And because you're a member of the NRA, you suggest 'Bagpipes' should be hauled to jail for refusing to ID himself. Did it go over your pointed head sixteen times when the above posts told you repeatedly that one is not required in the US to carry or produce ID?

There's a good chance that 'Bagpipes' is also an NRA member, which is also meaningless.

6:12 am You have the right to open carry but a restaurant owner doesn't have the right to require , oh, a coat and tie or shoes? I guess you don't eat out much! The gun is something you are WEARING!

And, for the government expert: My legislator is influenced by special interests, who contributes to his campaign, and what he needs to do to get re-elected. Influencing the electorate is part of the process as well. I guess you never heard of lobbyists.

Just because lobbyist are successful ( and the NRA leadership is living high on the hog by successfully making you feel threatened) , doesn't mean the tie can't turn or a backlash won't eventually occur.

As we have more examples of those who have undergone psychiatric treatment committing murder or our homegrown terrorists start shooting up Dodge City, the tide may well indeed turn!

And, federal law trumps State laws when the State start risking our national security.

If this American citizen had been all in black with only his eyes showing or been a woman with a scarf wrap around her head, it wouldn't make him or her have less rights to open carry, now would it ?

You've all decided that attire shouldn't be probable cause!

My guess is that behind whatever cover he's had constructed for him (NRA, Tea Party, whatever...), "Bagpipes" is a PLANT, from some entity which concerns itself with disarming the American populace. Bagpipes did a good job toward that end, too.

In any event, since the courts have established that it's fine & dandy to aim cameras up little girls' dresses at Target ("No reasonable expectation of privacy"), this old Cougar demands EQUAL COVERAGE. Why didn't someone aim a camera up Bagpipe Boy's kilt? I'd like to see what he's packin'. Strutting around on the sidewalk like that, he has "no reasonable expectation of privacy".

Thank you. That is all.

Bet many of you supporting the kilt guy took a much different stance on producing an ID when it came to Arizona's law "targeted" at illegals. When it's someone else being ask for ID, the general consensus is "just pull your damn driver's license out" or "how does anyone not have ID on them these days". Let a self-proclaimed Constitutionalist be stopped by a cop tho and it's a different story. The same crowd overwhelmingly supported voter ID laws, yet it's too much of an inconveniece to produce that same ID while wielding an AR?

PS...I own an AR along with many other guns and have my CPP. I also have a deep respect for law enforcement and realize that they are living on a razor thin edge. Cops' guards have to be up and it's damn near humanly impossible to be pleasant while dealing with the stress and unknowns of situations they face daily. Don't be that jerk that correlates producing an ID to a cavity search or producing Nazi issued geneology papers to the SS.

Been around many Kilt Boy types at local shooting ranges. They are the first to call out someone for leaving a chamber closed, not wearing safety glasses or some other minor technicallity. Mind you, they are calling out an adult acquaintance that cleared the membership requirements or has legally purchased an extra permit from the state after qualifying for the normal hunting license. Same guy thinks open carrying a hog leg .44 at Chuck-e-Cheese is a Constitutional right, tho.

You can check with the NRA as I once did on open carry. Although legal in this state, or else where in open carry states, you could be considered a public nuisance by the police.

When a cop asks you for ID you'd best produce it.

For those having a problem with my opinion, best get over it.

8:13 pm You are totally clueless.

You don't " get" the point .

You are simple minded and complexities escape you.

The point is that you and your gun nut buddies never contemplated the consequences of the open carry law.

You can't see or admit the need for any restrictions whatsoever.

Practicality and reality is not your strong suit.

You fail to see that it's possible to protect " your rights" without sacrificing the safety of the public at large.

So you've created an environment where terrorists can have it easy. They can even wear carry assault weapons down the street in full jihadist garb without impunity.

They can buy weapons with impunity even when the FBI or Homeland Security is watching them. In Mississippi, our legislature has made it impossible for federal agents to take weapons away from home grown terrorists until they engage in terror. Arms dealers have found a safe haven for moving weapons here.

But, it's more important for you to feel like a big man and show off your " gun", right?

Every Marine knows the difference between his gun and his weapon. The dumbest private will be made to understand. I'm sure you, however, are scratching your ass in confusion.

To the obviously young or forgetful posters in this thread:

Twenty years ago, one could walk around in the open with a long gun (rifle, shotgun, etc) and no one would pay attention. It wasn't a big deal because it was commonplace in the rural areas.

Teachers would take their long guns from their vehicle and bring them into the classroom. High school kids would have rifles much more lethal than the one in the video hanging in gun racks in the back window of their pickups. Those people were simply returning to school after hunting the morning before.

But..... during this same time one's right to carry a handgun concealed was removed. The right to have loaded weapons in one's car for defense was constantly challenged. In fact, up until 10 years or so ago, the "gun grabbers" would infer that only "sporting guns" were necessary for the private citizen. That no one needs a "military" weapon to hunt.

Police officers were also able to articulate their thoughts about why they detain and/or arrest someone. In other words, they would "profile" and individual and the person acting "strange" with a rifle strapped to his shoulder vs the average joe just walking from his car to his office are 2 different individuals.... the weapons didn't change the perception.

Now, as quite evident with posters to this article, people are conditioned to label someone carrying a rifle as a "zealot", "off-base", "nuts", etc. Actually this is simply the removal of critical thinking from our society as a whole. Reasoning is no longer common, and society operates, as a whole, as whether the peg fits the hole.

We've created an environment where every citizen can be prepared when, I repeat WHEN, said terrorist , murderer, car jacker, ect. Breaks said restrictions (laws) without impunity.

If you have no record that bars you from buying a weapon there is no reason you can't buy one.
And the police can't arrest anyone until they engage in terror anyway.
And I'm sure arm dealers have flocked to Mississippi.

It's important for me to feel like a safe man, right?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Note: Security provided by INS.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
