  •  Thank you. (18+ / 0-)

    If I were in a Jack In The Box and a bunch of people came in carrying guns, I would be so out of there. I'd faint if one man  carried a gun into the feed store where I buy my chicken feed. And we all know each other here.

    A woman in training at the prison waved a loaded 357 around her head while being trained to shoot and about 12 of us were behind the supply shed before you could shout "hey". And she is just an idiot, not someone trying to scare you on purpose.

    I will never believe that these criminals don't know that they are scaring people. Someone could have a heart attack during one of their "demonstrations". It is very telling that they didn't have signage and didn't call the police before they went to the restaurant. Small weenie carriers.

    •  what is most galling is their threat to publish (11+ / 0-)

      the name and address along with other personal information of anyone who dares to call 911 about their antics.  To be sure, there must be some statute to protect people from other people who are determined to bully them.

      I note that the new "safe" gun manufacturer is under pressure currently from "Slippery Slope" CT types as well as any store which offers the gun for sale.  Since we are discussing constitutional rights, if these Second Amendment advocates would be all exercised that their antics are preventing me from purchasing a firearm i wish to purchase

      •  that pisses me off the most too (9+ / 0-)

        I'm generally willing to tolerate a wide range of disagreement. I think their demands absurd (who the hell but the paranoid think they need to really carry a gun these days?) but this is a democracy and all the pros and cons that come with it. But threatening people like that? That's nothing but small minded bullying and intimidation and should be illegal.

      •  The threat to publish names is plain old bullying. (5+ / 0-)

        Cowards bully. Rational people don't need to. Anyone who carries a gun into a public place to "prove" something is crazy. And I'll say that to anyone who feels the need to carry the symbol of the small weenie.

        The insanity of not wanting us to have a safer gun is another  example of cowardice. To go after something that makes life safer shows the level of intimidation they want to employ because they are, once again,  cowardly bullies.

          I see all their posturing as cowardly bullying. What would they do if they didn't have their guns? Nothing, that is what they would do.

        A group of Non-white  citizens took over a stretch of federal land  (grounds around a monument) and and held a local competition, midnight basketball, pick up football, frisbee, even cricket --whatever, but brought their own armed guards to protect the players and bystanders.  And declared it their land to use--Free of charge.
        How long before the urban warfare--the swat team shows up and takes out the: Squatters, drug dealers or even terrorists!

      •  How would they know who called 911 and where (0+ / 0-)

        would they get that person's PII? It has always been true that anyone can call 911 anonymously for obvious reasons. Personally, I would make that call in a heartbeat.

        •  911 calls are automatically traced to the phone of (0+ / 0-)

          origin.  That way, responders can be sent even if the caller is too injured or too sick to report his address.

          In this case, it appears that someone filed a FOIA request to the local center and a low ranking employee honored the request though such information is supposed to be kept private

    •  When people (4+ / 0-)

      ...start telling Jack in the Box and other businesses that they won't be back until it's a safe place to be, the businesses (i.e., the $) will rattle the right cages - in this case the local and state authorities - to take care of this shit.  Nevada is already seeing people cancel travel plans.  They won't listen to the poor residents of the town near Bundy's ranch - hey, they're just peons like you and me - but they'll listen to their paymasters.  

      The new mantra for the left should be "Cui bono - wherever it is, that's where we'll wield our leverage". Because I'm coming to believe it's the only leverage we've got.  

      I'll have a Cafe-Mocha-Vodka-Valium Latte to go, please.
