Insane? No so much if you consider past behavior from left-leaning groups and unions. The following pic is an example of why laws and ordinances like that are passed:
That is from a Longshoremen protest in Portland back in 2011. If I recall, anarchist marches and other similar idiots tend to pull that kind of stunts and then using the “holders” to create havoc and destruction of private property. Anyway, I find it kinda stupid, specially when it is attached to a bunch of scaredy cats that puke & pass out at the sight of a Glock logo.
But why not ban guns? Well, maybe because there have been no incidents when gun owners march? As in “They behave according to the law, are polite and friendly”? That kind of thing goes a long way, you know?
And the comments from the Luddites are just precious:
Karen Derus Durling Right-wing stinkin’ thinkin’ at its finest!
Rory Lane Shows how backwards thinking the pro – gun folks are
Steve Nolan If only they defended the 1st the way they defend their warped idea of the 2nd
Peter Read The staffs of hand-sized American flags were problematic. AR-15s were not. As a veteran I don’t know what to make of that.
EM Clark Get rid of Fox News. I am a Republican, but as long as people like Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin and Fox News are allowed to proliferate, this will happen. Big money maker and Rupert and Limbaugh and those guys are not practitioners. How come Palins two eldest kids can get away with having an illegitimate brat and nearly illegitimate brat outside of wedlock but you can’t. They are just making money on this. Also Doomsday Preppers. You would think Ahmedinajab was over here. If it is walking back, let it walk back safely.
Charlotte Rowe Not insane. Very deliberately planned to favor the gunfucks.
Jack Parker Does Terry McAuliffe have anything to say about this? I thought the last election signaled a major shift in VA politics.
