    No shit.

    I'm sure any cop at an obama campaign that sees a man with a gun is going to jump on him. Despite all the bumper stickers on sheeplemobiles there are alot of paople who hate him and there are open threats to assasinate the man. Although if you were going to do that woudln't you advoid OC?


    Anyway.....

    Was this even posted against firearms? was it private property? is there any past incidents of arresting people at political rallys?

    I wonder if this would happen at a Ron Paul rally?

    If an officer arrested a guy at a Ron Paul rally, I wouldn't be surprised if Ron Paul himself came over and asked what he was being arrested for.
    Any mission, any conditions, any foe at any range.
    Twice the mayhem, triple the force.
    Ten times the action, total hardcore.

    you're fucking kidding me, right? tell me the rally was in a school or state park or something.

    seriously, i may not have had the balls to do what he did, but that's just me. some will say he did us a disservice by proving we're a bunch of gun toting bible thumping yahoos. that may be. but it doesn't excuse the fact that what he did, was in all likelihood, perfectly legal.

    this past st. patty's day, i wore my gun to the parade. openly. i knew hillary clinton would be there, but i figured she'd be in a float or something. she walked by me, less than 20 feet away. walked by me, and the worst i got was some eyeballing by Scranton PD. and i got shit from some feminazis for waving my ron paul sign at clinton, but that's besides the point. i got within 20 feet of the woman who helped author the AWB, and i did it fully, visibly armed.

    obama seems to be ready to take his place among history's greats: caesar, stalin, pol pot....

    I believe the park is owned by the city of Beaver, which would prevent them from legally prohibiting firearms

    Now all those stupid retards that vote for obama think that carrying a gun is illegal. Not that they'd do any fact checking to make sure. If they did that they'd probably pick a different candidate.

    Before we collectively hex Mr. Atkinson with ill will, he's not the villain here. He saw a man open carrying a gun, still not a common sight, and alerted police.
    And the little kiddies who reported their parents to the NKVD thought they were doing good, too, until their parents disappeared into Stalin's gulag.

    That's what I like about you Headcase. You don't sugar coat it.

    I think this would have happened if it was a McCain rally, too. The deputies probably didn't care who the candidate was; they just saw a man OCing and went from there. Lets keep this from being an Obama-bashing thread and focus on the apparent civil rights violation by the local PD.

    Agreed, focus, focus, focus.

    OK I'll kick the hornets nest ---- IANAL or a LEO but I am pretty sure that there are federal laws that provide for extreme security measures when it comes to the security of U.S. Secret Service or DSS protectees. Of course Obama is under some real serious Secret Service protection. IMO a law suit in this case will get no where at all. This is typical of what happens anytime a case of a firearm inside a security zone such as this occurs. The person with the firearm is taken away and held until the protectee has left the scene. This is usually a couple of hours at most.

    Anyone who OCs into a security zone such as this is simply asking for a very bad time. I don't just go looking for trouble which is what this sort of sounds like.

    I do not like this AT ALL but what other choice do the LEOs have if they are to protect the president and other such dignitaries.

    Now as for a previous poster who wished a long and painful cancer death on the person who "alerted" the LEOs ---- I think that went too far and reflects real poorly on the person who wrote it, this site, PAFOA as an organization and all of us "gun folks". Just my opinion -- sorry.
