    I hope it was just Miller showing up posthumous and late for his SC appeal.

    WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA)-- 9NEWS NOW's Bruce Leshan has learned from Capitol Police sources that they have arrested an armed man.

    The man was walking down 1st St NE with a tactical vest, a loaded shotgun, a tactical bow and arrow and a samurai sword in a hidden case behind his back.

    His Chevy with Utah license plates came up positive for explosive traces when the dogs sniffed it. There are more weapons in the car.

    The area has been cordoned off during the investigation.

    9NEWS NOW Reporter Audrey Barnes is on the scene where officers are going over the man's belongings.


    Tactical Bow and Arrow? Was it camo?

    What on Earth is a tactical bow and arrow?
    Is it only available in black, or something?

    EDIT: Oops... I just saw that Happy already asked.

    Maybe it looked like the one from Rambo II?

    Those roaming Samurai are becoming an increasing problem.

    Tactical means he put low light sights on it...and carried a high cap quiver.

    I read this and thought it was a joke. I didn't believe a news source would put such a thing out.

    So I went to 9 News Now (I'm in the DC area anyway)...

    We're laughing about it but...

    ...we can officially kiss our rights goodbye. After this, Heller will NOT be decided in our favor.

    I'd bet real money this guy was a plant. We will hear nothing further about the case, you wont ever hear of him being charged or going to trial. We wont even know his name.

    I would like to think that the supreme court doesn't make decisions based on one news item. I would hope there is a little more involved in the process.

    A plant? I doubt it. Who's going to potentially give up years of their lives to make this weak statement?

    I'm thinking the guy is just another nut among many.
  16. HonorsDaddy

    HonorsDaddy Well-Known Member

    Yes, a plant...

    Why on earth do you think this guy will go to jail? If his name is never announced in the media, you'll have no way to confirm if charges were ever brought. He was arrested 3 hours ago and still no name released. For pete's sake, we had the names of the 9/11 hijackers before bodies stopped falling.

    Hate to break it to you, but this is just one of many upcoming examples which WILL be used to gut what is left of the 2nd Amendment. Enjoy it now people - you're going to have to decide VERY soon whether you're going to invoke it for its intended purpose.

    CNN links to the OP and Fox doesn't have any more than this:


    Ban Sushi.

    It's For The Fish!

    Its not a tin foil hat thing, its just an observation.

    3-1/2 hours and no further data - just some unnamed guy in a pickup with Utah plates. Come on - how much more could you POSSIBLY play into the east coast lefty idea of a gun owner?

    If I'm wrong, I'm wrong. If I'm not, I'll expect your apology.
