That is incredible. I hope that guy gets his gun back. I am not a big fan of lawsuits, but in this case I will make an exception. They need to sue the pants off of all of the agencies involved.
This was my thoughts, after visiting their forum. The police were definitely not being very smart, but this thing had been planned to take place over a period of weeks. Right or wrong, the problem affects every gun owner, CC, or OC when Anti's get hold of it.VegasGuy said:This group was pushing buttons and they knew it. They are lucky to have it end without anyone getting hurt. I am giving both sides an "F" for their actions.
So we get an 'F' for exercising the rights granted to us by the 2nd amendment and the PA constitution? All they were doing were enjoying dinner with friends and family. I can see how that would lead to someone getting hurt.VegasGuy said:While I do not disagree that these LEO's could have handled the situation in a manner that did not trample of these citizens' rights, it also begs the question, just what did these people think might happen? A group of people in civilian clothes walking around openly carrying handguns is not something you see every day in a restaurant. It doesn't take a lot of thought to imagine someone might call 911. In fact, one could argue that such a call to 911 was likely.

Re-read my previous post where I gave the LEO's an "F," too. I didn't excuse their actions.texastaurusguy said:Vegas, even if that were true, then the police should have showed up and not cared too. PA is an open carry state - they acted like these citizens were openly carrying guns in CA or NYC or somewhere like that. No excuse, none at all.
Because pushing buttons can go bad even when you are within your rights. People get hurt because tensions are high and all it takes is for someone to do something stupid.joe sixpack said:vegas you're crazy man, first you say they was pushing buttons.. im sorry but since when is exercising you rights pushing buttons
