    I would have expected this type of knee jerk reaction. What they were doing was legal. Just exercising their legal rights. Damn, why can't American's exercise their legal rights?

    An unholstered gun in a populated area is just provocative. Legal or not, these guys were just stupid for walking around with rifles. As I said in another post, wearing a holstered gun and just going about your business makes sense. This is just asking for trouble. And it's the kind of trouble that gun owners don't need.

    I'm not saying it's not legal. Its legal to fart in someones face walking by them in a restaraunt to the bathroom, but I refrain from doing it. People like this scare people, they drive public opinion toward gun control. Second amendment advocates would be wise to win people over by using tact and public education, not antics like this. I support the second amnd but most people on here assume differently, and begin paranoid rants about how i support taking their guns away, etc. because they are so paranoid that they interpret anything less then full out support for the right to walk down mainstreet with a bandolier of ammo, two rilfes, and a gun belt sporting two handguns means I want to conficate their weapons and put a computer chip in their trigger finger...

    @PoliticalSpice I think we all must realize that this was just to show something that may be taken away in the stroke of a pen by Obama. These two men may be the last ones to ever walk a city steet legally with their weapons. It would have been smarter if their were 100 in different age groups, but what they did was legal. If this had been Clint Eastwood would your opinion change? I say march on and continue every right you have and enjoy them while you have them.

    We do realize that the "real" knee jerk reaction could have been hot lead or a tazer dart flying their way. I understand why cops shoot in these incidents. Idiots like these don't understand one wrong move could have gotten them dead! STUPID!

    Under "normal" circumstances, this wouldn't happen, and everyone would politely co-exist in peace. But the current situation is NOT normal. If our own public servants and the legacy media weren't so openly hostile and venomous toward responsible, law-abiding, gun-owners, then people wouldn't feel compelled to make a provocative statement.

    How am I going to make fun of West Virgina and Kentucky now that we've got Einsteins like this wandering the streets in my home state?

    Go right ahead. I'm sure the people of West Virginia and Kentucky, wonderful places by the way, won't mind. They, like everyone else, has been making fun of you folks for years. Just like everybody else.

    @VCP There may be idiots in all 50 states but it's more fun to make fun of them when they are in someone else's state! Why couldn't these guys have just moved to Seattle?

    This is exactly the type of stupidity I post objecting too. People like this and those who react in angry, paranoid, rants, such as threats to go to civil war or needing everyone to carry a gun scare the death out of ordinary people and are driving public opinion toward gun control faster then anything else.

    I don't think anyone believes "everyone" is even capable of carrying. Rather than "needing everyone to carry a gun", what I typically read are comments insisting that all good citizens retain the right to decide for themselves. There's an important distinction.

    Keep being NOT paranoid. Thats exactly what big brother wants. While he quietly dismantles America, right by right.
    So someone tell me, what exactly would be expectable gun control laws, and how are you going to assure me and others like me that the criminals are all complying with the law, because as long as criminals have AR-15's I will be here with my AK's

    @Thegrif Exactly the type of paranoid statement I am talking about. Did I say anything at all about acceptable gun contol laws? No. That I support any type of gun control is a paranoid fantasy you cooked up in your mind because I was critical of two idiots that scared the living daylight out of their neabors...

    @PoliticalSpice i didn't say you said anything about gun control, I ask a question to anyone, which was, what would be acceptable gun control? So We know the bad guys are following the law also.
    Don't rant though, just sit back and watch your country fall.
    Have a nice day :-)

    When asked by reporters what they were hoping to accomplish with the public display, the men replied that they wanted to end the "demonizing of peacefully exercising your rights in public." They also hoped to educate folks they encountered about gun rights.

    GOOD FOR THEM!!! Liberals hate our American Constitutional Rights and would snatch them away from us in a heartbeat

    Yes, Arizona is the same, and I respect that and like it, some do not
    because they spend their lives living in fear, because they are simply gun ignorant.

    "But that's a lesson some members of the public would rather learn some other way..."

    Sadly, it seems most liberals, and all the legacy media, simply refuse to "learn" anything whatsoever about the lawful, responsible, bearing of arms. Instead, they close their eyes, ears, and mind, while screeching wild nonsense. Consequently, good law-abiding citizens are compelled to push the issue in more creative ways.

    You are so right. People who react on emotions do seemingly silly things. However, as you say, when the government and a complicit media refuse to act rationally, some people do also. Biden met with gun control advocates Tuesday, BEFORE he met with the NRA he said he was sending recomendations to Obama. That to me is not taking all things into consideration. It was all a foregone conclusion. They just wasted time by holding these sham conferences then coming out swinging with assault weapon, high capacity magazine and gun show bans. To show the stupidity of the government's position to "save the children", they just sold almost 3 million "assault" type guns this past month because of mistrust of the government.

    "neither seemed interested in those concerns." - Evidently unnecessary consumption of law enforcement resources isn't a big deal for this pair.

    They were well within the confines of the law. Perhaps all the idiots calling the cops should educate themselves on the legality of such matters in the state they reside.

    I think if they carried a sign also stating , no gun control BUT gun safty is first ,,, things would have been more reasonable

    Many states have a 'right to carry'. In Pa., one may (with some exceptions) walk down the street , shop & dine while wearing an exposed sidearm (pistol , revolver) without a concealed carry permit. There are groups of men & women who make plans to do this.
    While I carry concealed & don't involve myself with 'open carry'- it is their RIGHT to do so. IMO , these people who feel threatened by anyone simply wearing a firearm are the same type that bemoan animaly cruelty , support PETA yet greatly enjoy eating a $50 dollar steak at a great steakhouse or love a great piece of VEAL or LAMB . Can you say hypocrites boys & girls ?

    There are many in the city who vow to "Keep Portland Weird". This isn't the first time these two have done this. Why can't they just be satisfied with gay marriage?

    Don't know what's worse, that they didn't think this thru or when this was pointed out to them ... they still couldn't make the connection of how their actions are being perceived!

    Exactly whatI try to tell second amnd advocates who post paraniod sounding crazy rants on here. They are helping push public opinion toward gun control...

    Lol.. There young and making a point, still within their rights. As long as their not threating or trying to intimadate cititzens, I'm ok with it. I bet someone wanting to rob or kill someone else within eye shot of those two would think twice.

    @MongoAPillager I know its little outlandish, and I admit it sounded better in my head, I just saw most people criticize them so I tried to look at it from a different perspective. But you know if you were looking to rob a quicky mart and you saw two hillbillys with rifles in the front of the store, your going to pick another store, because most crimanals don't want a fight, they want an easy score. They wouldn't want to take that chance. Don't get me wrong I don't want them to going play cops.

    i like how the one guy (the fat one) is wearing a "dont tread on me" tshirt. With the gut that dude is sporting, it looks like he lets anyone with a cheeseburger tread on him. Also, why is he wearing and underarmor workout shirt under that t-shirt? When is the last time you think he saw the inside of a gym?

    Also, these guys are idiots. There is proving a point and then there is purposely inciting public panic. They were in this for the latter, while claiming the former.

    Great way to educate people concerning guns ..... walk through town carrying assault rifles. My response would be to turn and run like heck ..... zip ..... zing ..... zoom ..... I'm gone in a cloud of of thrown up gravel and to the sound of my sneakers squealing on concrete. Educate people? What idiot now days is going to go up to two strangers carrying assault guns down a street? Can you say the words 'gun death victim'?

    Jenny,
    You are describing a paranoid delusional reaction to a non-threatening situation. Please consider getting professional help.
