Back when Occupy Wall Street-types were occupying downtown Providence, Rhode Island, I surveyed the protestors about the Second Amendment. Ten occupiers were resolutely pro-2A. One wasn’t. So when I read the report stating that open carrier “Shane Butts of Puyallup told Q13 FOX News that he was at Seattle Central Community College to ‘ensure people’s rights get respected'” I had no cause to doubt him. “These people have a right to free speech,” Butts asserted . . .
Damn straight. Just as Butts has the right to open carry his slung rifle at the event. In fact, what’s up with the coverage? “Some people nearby expressed concern about the rifle,” the story claims. What people? More mainstream media anti-gun FUD, timed to coincide with Oregon’s background check bill.
Keep calm and carry on I say. You?
