Well done officer, a good example of what law enforcement should be about.

Too bad all cops can’t handle things this calmly and rationally. In this case, though, I agree with the cop. These guys wanted a confrontation, that’s all. Kudos to the cop for the unbelievable patience.

You won’t find a bigger 2A proponent than me. But I also understand the public disturbance piece of this. You may have the legal right to do this, but the “stars” of the video are absolutely looking to make a public statement. No one should be surprised that this type of demonstration causes a LOT of concern and makes a lot of people very uncomfortable. You may be the most honest, peaceful, law-abiding person in America…..but nobody else knows that.

In the end, just because you have the legal right to do something doesn’t mean you necessarily should do it or that it’s a good idea. I don’t think this helps the 2A cause. No matter how comfortable you are with your AR (and I happen to love mine), there are many, many people who aren’t comfortable with ANY gun, much less the evil, black rifle portrayed in the media.

How would you tell your child to respond if he came up on someone pacing the sidewalk with a slung AR? Would you tell him to not worry about it because the vast majority of legal gun owners will never hurt anyone they don’t have to? Or would you tell your kid to get out of the area as fast as you can?

These types of pointless confrontations (and the stars didn’t offer any point other than they felt like exercising their rights in a very public manner that day), just help paint the picture of a “gun nut.” And not in a helpful way.

You my friend found some very palliate way of saying very right things. the only thing it does is it makes politicians think about changing the legislature to when American will have to show ID to a police officer when asked to do so. in vast majority of the countries around the world police has the right to detain an individual for as long as 24 and in some 72 hours in case he or she cannot ID himself. smart asses like this only make it worse.

Cop did a great job, was doing his duty. Thought these guys were kind of jerks. I would have had no problem showing him my ID. Cop just wanted to know if they were felons.

Those kids were absolute dorks. I dont think the cop gave a shit about the make of your crappy AR.

See, it’s people like this that PUSH the open carry that gets open carry lifted. If enough cops keep getting called out to do wellness checks, it doesn’t make them stop doing the checks. Instead the state enacts ordinances stating specifically that open carry is illegal. Here in AZ, we don’t make a big deal about open carry. Nobody shoved it in people’s faces. And we got Constitutional carry, where it’s legal to carry however you like. If you throw it in people’s faces that “LOOKATME I’M CARRYING A GUN THAT SCARES YOU AND YOU CAN’T DO ANYTHING TO ME!!!!” sooner or later, the people enact laws limiting that.
