CONCORD, N.H. —Police used an electronic stun gun to subdue a Brentwood man Tuesday night at a gun control rally in Concord.

A News 9 camera was on the scene when officers took 52-year-old Daniel Musso to the ground shortly after he interrupted a speech in favor of expanded background checks for people purchasing guns. Reporter Adam Sexton watched the altercation unfold.

The interruptions continued for several more minutes before Musso walked away, but police had already arrived on the scene and decided they’d seen enough. A struggle ensued, lasting about 90 seconds before officers deployed a Taser and took him to the ground.

He put his hands on a police officer, and was being obnoxious.

He got what he deserved.

The first time the NH police fail to tase a heckler at a Tea Party rally, there should be MAJOR lawsuits. Frickin’ thugs.

Take a good long hard look at this photo, because in no time we will all be the guy in the picture.

The Ends justify the Means...the Left so passionately believes in this cause to stop the 2nd Amendment that the are so very willing to stop free speech from any of those who dare raise their voice.

The Left has us all on the path to Tyranny.

I’ve been watching leftists heckle conservative speakers for more than 40 years. Never seen one of them or heard of one of them being tasered, even the resisters.

If a heckler at a Tea party rally puts his hands on a police officer, they will probably get the same treatment.

I have been to a Tea Party rally and seen hecklers assault blue-haired TP grannies, and the police stood by and did NOTHING. I disagree with you, FRiend.

If they don’t respect your 2nd Amendment rights - what makes you think they respect your 1st Amendment rights?

Your point brings the new normal into picture.

What the Left gets (say OWS), versus what the Right gets.

OWS has hands off from LOEs and the POTUS quoted as saying he’s with the protestors, while the Right get the Taser.

Its time to get real about the place in this country the Left is pointing their opponents towards.

One thing doesn’t justify the other. This guy put his hands on an officer first. This isn’t the type of thing us pro gun people should be doing, it doesn’t further or help our cause.

At most 2A rallies I've attended...there's always *someone* who sets the cause back...like this guy sporting an AR on the steps of the capitol in Hartford this spring. I respect their *passion* for the 2A...but they become useful pawns to the anti-media.

Wow, it’s a good thing he didn’t go as far as “diss’ing” a cop, or he would have been shot to death.

Don't touch a cop, even lightly. Bad idea. Still, I think the cops flew off the handle.
It stinks but we have to be cleaner than the other guys.

WMUR is a highly left-wing ABC affiliate, the only public news TV station in NH.
Their one-sided coverage I believe is a major reason NH has turned blue.
The other reason is influx of liberals from Massachusetts and New York, who seek to escape their oppressive state politics, only to take it with them.

Well...if you want to get *extreme*....many in the crowd were armed [open carry]...and if this was to be a *defining moment* in this debate....I’m sure the armed citizens outnumbered the cops....and the result would have been a Lexington-Concord moment.

No doubt about WMUR. They are definitely left wing and not only that, their news cast sucks. That being said, this guy was being obnoxious, and it doesn’t help our pro gun cause. It is exactly the type of thing our government is hoping for. Also, touching police officers is stupid.

I guess things are different up in New Hampshire. I do agree the guy could have used better judgement. I just doubt that three cops needed to employ a taser to take control of the situation. Are you a NH cop?

Multiple other witnesses say that it did not happen that way:

There are at least 4 videos of the event, so we should find out the truth eventualy.

This is why we can’t have nice things [from your link]:

Gene, I was also an eyewitness to all that occurred. Although I am a strong believer in holding police, here or anywhere, accountable for over-reactions, abuse of power, &/or brutality, I was relieved by & approved of their actions today. The counter protesters were revving up for violence, many brandishing their automatic, massacre style weapons, yelling out violent rhetoric. The police responded to a potentially disasterous situation. This guy ended up being the fall guy, because the violent energy calmed down after he was removed. But he was a 100% participant in creating a untenable situation that the police HAD to respond to. He was NOT a random victim.**

Technically, the guy was resisting arrest.
Once a cop says "You're under arrest!", it's not really negotiable.
This reflects badly on all of us.

That is always a possibility...like the guy with the AR at our capitol rally....no one seemed to recognize him from any local club...that was what the whisper in the crowd was.

He tried to face the officer in the other direction, and then he struggled with them for about a minute after they told him he was under arrest:

I was wondering why he was standing next to the podium and not among the audience.
Intentional provocation is entirely possible.
Will be interesting if we ever get to know his real background.

All hecklers should be tasered. Repeatedly. Right or left.

Free speech should not include the right to interrupt when someone else is speaking.

Rude is rude; if it’s not worth risking or taking life then STFU until it’s your turn to speak.

I do not go armed to rallies.
It's far too likely someone will deliberately misconstrue my intentions.
Or misrepresent my role in it if some quarrel does break out.

Well, our car-full were all armed at that rally b/c the walk from where you had to park brought you through some *sketchy* streets.

None of us prefer *open carry*, in any case.

“It’s never wise to put your hands on an LEO.”

heck, in these times, it’s wise not to cower, plead and provide complete submission in the presence of LE. And even then watch your dog or maybe your grand daughter who may pop up and spook the Man.

These are words of wisdom.

"He put his hands on a police officer, and was being obnoxious. He got what he deserved."

"Being obnoxious" isn't a crime. Liberals are obnoxious all the time. The cops shouldn't have approached him in the first place. And I seriously doubt that he "put hands on the cop" FIRST. The NEW cops hired after these are terminated need to be better trained on free speech rights.

Agree. All he did was touch the cop.

The cops went into full thug mode after that.
