Gun-Toting Protesters Shake Up Falls Church
Washington Post ^ | October 2, 2004 | David Cho

Posted on 10/02/2004 12:07:06 PM PDT by Mulder

It seemed simple enough. Falls Church officials recently drafted a policy that would require city workers to call 911 immediately if anyone stepped onto city property carrying a gun. Police who responded would check to see if the gun was properly licensed and report their findings to city officials.

............snip..................

About 30 people, pistols strapped to their hips, strode into the council's meeting this week protesting the policy and warning that it violates their constitutional right to bear arms -- and possibly state laws, as well.

The presence of so many pistol-packing citizens at Monday's meeting unnerved council members and, in particular, infuriated council member David Snyder, who denounced their brazen display of firearms as "intimidation" and attacked Virginia's recently enacted laws that limit local control over guns.

What a bunch of Nancy's. That building was probably the safetest place t obe that night. Snyder should be in jail. For gross stupidity if nothing else...

I always looked at folks carrying a sidearm in a visable holster as law abidding sorts straight away. If the same sidearm was properly conceiled per a CHL argeement (while the 2nd is ignored by law) then the issue should never bear fruit until either a crime or an act of self defense occurs.......

Gang violence or not crimes against persons are high because coyotes dwell where there are lots of rabbits. Polidiots such as the Falls Church sort makes more rabbits with unconstitutional laws that reflect their own personal fears and fantisies. Doom on em for keeping their folks in such a hazardous position with their misguided efforts to keep em safe.

"It was unnerving," said Vice Mayor Martha Meserve. She added: "Our staff is supposed to be on alert to look for suspicious activity, to look for terrorists, and now they're being told that if they question someone carrying a weapon, they are harassing people. You can't have it both ways."

Uh huh!

In recent years Northern Virginia has had an enormous increase in gang activity, mostly ethnic gangs being involved. At the same time there is an enormous resurgence of wildlife, foxees, for example, with intrusions into regular suburban neighborhoods on a startling scale.

The actions of Falls Church, an isolated majority liberal bastion, are like those of the educracy, which, rather than recognize and actually address the ethnic gang problem, has banned even pocket knives for little boys.

Anything to avoid dealing with the problem while pretending to do so with "solutions" that enlarge and protect the "progresssive" liberal state which the secularists worship.

Kerry has always been an anti, and always will be. Problem is, about 30-40% of the population will vote for either party regardless of that party's stance on RKBA or any other issue. In my view, it's dumb for the RKBA folks to limit their efforts to only one party.

I'm proud to be a Democrat. And proud to be an RKBA activist. And I also love a good chair-throwing debate. So are you ready to talk about the "pro-gun" policies of some illustrious GOP Senators such as McCain, Warner, and Chafee?

In answer to your question about how I plan to vote. I don't believe in cutting off my nose to spite my face. And you can interpret that as you see fit.

Those crickets sure do get noisy when a Democrat has the temerity to challenge the RKBA stance of "pro-gun" Republicans.
