  •  They don't arrest anyone for (6+ / 0-)

    wearing something.  They ask -- as they did here repeatedly -- that you cover it up (or turn it inside out) or leave.  Pretty much the same as they do at voting booths if you wear a t-shirt that has a message prohibited within so many feet of the polls.

    And yes, they do it for things like gun rights or the ACLU, for "pro" and "anti" same sex marriage rights, for "pro" and "anti" abortion rights, for all those kinds of things.  

    They only arrest you if, after repeated requests, you refuse to comply.
