“The notorious white supremacist Craig Cobb was taken to jail in handcuffs on Saturday after ‘patrolling’ around Leith, North Dakota with rifles and threatening citizens,” dailymail.com reports. “Resident Gregory Bruce and Leith City Councilman Lee Cook called 911 and took pictures of Cobb, 62, and his neo-Nazi associate Kynan Dutton, 29, after the men stood at the edge of Cook’s property with their fingers on the triggers of their weapons.” As a Jew, I’m not a huge fan of neo-Nazis. But I wonder where one draws the line between standing around on one’s own land, armed, and doing so in a threatening manner. I’m thinking muzzle direction would be a deciding factor. Anyway . . .
Still armed, the men then followed Leith resident, Miller Ferrie, to her house and exchanged words with her husband as she, in hysterics, called the sheriff whose deputies then arrived and took them into custody.”
Who knows what happened really. But this much I do know (courtesy wikipedia.org):
Open carry of long guns is generally permitted. Open carry of a loaded handgun is permitted only by individuals with a valid concealed weapons license. Non permit holders may carry one hour before sunrise till one hour after sunset provided the firearm is unloaded and in plain sight.
Generally, I want neo-Nazis behind bars. Specifically, after and only after they commit a crime.
