But would they treat people at a gay wedding?

A police officer says that he was denied treatment at walk in clinic because he was carrying a gun. And had guns pointed at him:

Several Mansfield Police Department officers told him to come out slowly with his hands up. More than one of them were pointing their firearm at him, he said.

Liggett said he was placed in handcuffs while police verified his identity as an auxiliary officer, which took only minutes. He was carrying his badge and ID in his wallet.

    Off on a bit of a tangent, today is Patriots Day marking the beginning of the American Revolution in 1775. On that day, government troops sent to forcibly disarm the American militia were resisted. Officialdom and the media now ignores this day and especially its significance. The only instance of which I’m aware in which a President acknowledged and extoled “the spirit of the Minutemen” was the following:

    Dear Mr. Orth:

    “On the occasion of Patriots Day, I wish to offer my contgratulations and best wishes to the National Rifle Association of America which over the past years has done credit to our country by the outstanding achievements of its members in the art of shooting.

    Through competitive matches and sports in coordination with the National Board for the Promotion of Rifle Practice, the Association fills an important role in our national defense effort, and fosters in an active and meaningful fashion the spirit of the Minutemen.

    I am pleased to accept Life Membership in the National Rifle Association and extend to your organization every good wish for continued success.”


    John F. Kennedy, 1961

    Cops hate when they get treated like they treat the rest of us.

    In a better world, police pointing their guns at a clearly innocent person should be assault with a deadly weapon under color of authority. A group of police pointing their weapons at somebody should be racketeering.

    He’s lucky they didn’t taze him. It seems to be customary in cases like this.

    The more responsible CCW license holder would have left the gun in the car.

    Jim, if its posted (no guns) I agree with you, unless police officers have special permissions to carry every where. Not sure about NJ but as anti gun as they are I wouldn’t be suprised if they were denied off duty carry privilages.

    Now in Mansfield, Ga. if they had a walk in clinic, the PA would say, “nice gun, want to see mine?”

    Just depends upon where you live.

    I picked our pediatrician by cross-referencing the list of doctors on our insurance with the (then) publicly-available list of carry permit holders. No issues 🙂

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
