in LOCAL NEWS, U.S. CONSTITUTION
Students comment from the YouTube description:
I was detained by Portland PD officer J McDonald on 26 May 2012. He detains me without suspicion of any criminal activity in violation of Delaware v Prouse. He admits his sole reason for stopping me is my legally carried firearm in violation of US v DeBerry. He seizes my weapon with no reasonable suspicion that Ive committed a crime in violation of Terry v Ohio. He demands my ID without reasonable suspicion in violation of Hiibel v Nevada
You have no rights. You’re a slave to the Imperial Federal Government of the United Socialist States of Amerika.
Yup, Rush just said we are a “post-Constitutional” society.
“But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
Too bad you have to be a criminal lawyer to exercise your rights.
Too bad the majority of the USSC doesn’t know the Constitution.
Thanks for the post. I admire this young man’s calm assertiveness. He is my hero of the day on a very bad day.
I believe this was about open carry - not concealed.
Nothing in the Constitution speaks of how our firearms are to be worn. Ergo, we should be able to carry any way we choose!
