Dude - RKBA means "keep and bear arms", not "keep and bare a$$".

You can wear a short-sleeved shirt, but, please, keep your pants on.

So where was he wearing the holster?

> Rangers later arrested the man and seized two pistols and a knife.

Okay, one pistol he was carrying.

So where was he hiding the other pistol and the knife, if he was naked????

Inquiring minds need to know....

“publicly nude and causing annoyance.”

I wonder what the annoyance was.

Maybe the "yelling at the river" part?

I dunno. Looks like he and the river got into some kind of argument. Probably set his six pack in the water to chill. River comes along and sweeps it away. So he starts yelling at the river and threatening to shoot it?

I'd be pissed too if the river stole my beer on a camping trip, but yelling and waving firearms around is no way to solve a dispute (unless you want to win). All that I get, but put some clothes on for Pete's sake.

Wasn’t in fliruda ...wuz in the Washatch gettin back Ta nature.....

I have to wonder if anyone checked with local spec ops sorts. Old exercise was to Escape an Evade through hostile territory naked with a firearm allegedly taken from your guard or captors.

A course of 150 miles was the norm ....

Campers an locals were unknowingly enemy players. They observed a naked man with a gun you can be sure they would alert authorities ASAP. Instructors prearranged the e&e exercise with park rangers an local law enforcement.

You were free running till seen by a local player then a team of instructors was after you at that point making your escape that much more difficult.

All that aside this guy sounds like he was just weenie waggin the chipmunks....

Been there did that long ago....:o)

‘No Nat’l forest in FL.’

I live 10 miles from the Ocala National Forest, and it was still there yesterday. It is not the only Florida National Forest either.

I think there is a lot of Death by Cop on peoples minds lately.

It has happened near me a couple of weeks ago, people are too despondent since the Obama regime has grown and appears to be unstoppable.

Saw some of that years ago in the desert outside Phoenix.

There were generators, colored lights, a rock band and kegs of beer iced down in the bed of an old Ford. Some of the natives had strange rituals...
