    Now, after reading every post...

    I understand why I can't lawfully take an uncased firearm out of my home, and can't take it out of the case until I'm on the range or in the field.

    Firearm owning blissninnies :barf:

    It also explains why the SWAT teams are called when someone is so non-politically-correct as to show his rifle to a friend in his living room, and leave his window uncovered so a passerby can see it.

    And yes, even here in Canada, 30 years ago it was no big deal to sit on the porch and clean rifles, shotguns, handguns, or sub-guns as the neighbors passed by.

    Our bill of rights also includes language that should protect our right to self-defence. Unfortunately, that and the 2A are only as good as the effort we put into defending our rights.

    Compromising your rights is as dangerous as compromising your morals. Don't do it.

    I like to clean my Mosin Nagant on the front porch, facing a high-traffic thoroughfare...Just to see if someone says something. No one has, yet....

    Goes right along with the idea that the constitution is outdated since this is a different time . We don't need all those pesky "rights" any more . It's different now .

    Hmm , I was unaware that being aware of my surroundings was "chest thumping" or quotes from the people that had the gall to form a free country were just "soundbites" .


    I kinda like threads like this . They show what people are really like . How many are willing to inconvenience others or even restrict what rights we all have , for their own personal comfort. The crux of the whole thing is that somebody was doing something legal , yet somebody else felt intimidated/scared/threatened by that act and someone of authority decided they needed to pay for this heinous act .

    Anti gun people use that same logic all the time for things like concealed carry and pushing the AWB . It's just not "21st century" . We're so much different now . Give an inch.........

    So you wouldn't think twice?

    If any of us saw a unknown guy walking down the street we wouldn't do anything differently?

    I don't know about you, but if I see someone I don't know walking around my neighborhood with an AK, or a baseball bat for that matter, I'm going to at least try to get an idea of what is going on. Yes, that means I would be on alert.

    I'm getting a kick out of these messages saying that you would look up, think "nice gun" and then not give it a second thought. Sure.

    How is that the same situation as a stranger walking around my neighborhood with a battle rifle?

    Wow, I can't believe how big this has gotten since I first posted it this morning. I've called a few of my friends that live down that way (I live in North Alabama) and they haven't heard anything about it.. but they did say they can't believe the police took his rifle from him and are thinking about hitting him with some charges. It is a sad day when you can't carry a rifle LEGALLY without a hassle in Alabama. We have truely turned into a culture of whiney ass softies who are afraid of our own shadows.

    I really appreciate everyones views on this, it has shown me alot about the mix of people we have on this board.

    Joe Demko, I see by your public profile that you are a self proclaimed Jack Booted Thug.

    It shows.

    Does the fact that the cops and DA had to manufacture a crime to charge him with because what he did was entirely LEGAL not bother you in the least??

    I can't wait till you are elected chief, maybe I will have moved away from Beaver county by then.

    Does the fact that I don't have the weight of the government and a badge behind me make me a chest thumper??

    Seems like I said something a couple pages back about flaming. I KNOW I said something, I could hear myself.

    Lights out.
