I just had the greatest idea for a protest (or flier) as a result of this incident.

Get a picture of Dave wearing what he did that day with his gun clearly visible then next to it a picture of Jason, Freddy or some other movie killer (but make sure no weapon is visible) and above that the caption who do you fear the most?

seriously, I remember when my girlfriend and I first meant Dave half way through i pointed out his gun.  She didnt even notice it before, thats how scary those things are...

I still don't notice when people open carry most of the time. Maybe if I was shorter or sat around and ate donuts more. :)

I think another great idea is for Dave to be escorted to the next MVP meeting by a phalanx of open carrying porcs.  And for that walk to be taped, and then posted on youtube.

In the event of another case like this, I suggest the victim call porc411 with a very brief msg indicating what's happening and where they are in case others are nearby and can come witness ("A policeman is approaching me. i'm not sure why. I'm 3 blocks north of the Sovereign bank on Elm if anyone's near and wants to come."). Then hang up and call back to continue to report what's going on. That will get a msg out to ppl quickly in case they can show up.

The more the merrier.  :)

It would also be nice to have a good turnout at the get together and I'd like to do some short interviews with folks. It will be nice for people thinking of moving to see the pleasant and enthusiastic early movers.

It looks like Dave's incident is getting a LOT of underground attention.  The comments on opencarry.org were promising.

But I must say I am very surprised to see the comments that our supposed allies on other forums are making.  Even people who open carry are saying the cops did little/nothing wrong.  I've read many comments that say Russell should have been arrested and Dave should not have provoked the cops!  These are not anti-gun liberals, these are actual gun-owners!

I am a little disappointed...

Some people hold cops in less disdain than others who've been arrested and thrown in jail for holding a sign in the wrong place at the wrong time, and that's all very understandable when you think about it.

The extent of most peoples' interaction with cops is with Officer Friendly helping them find their mommies when they were six years old, and letting them off with a friendly warning after getting caught dead to rights doing 80 in a 65.

The grinding sound you're hearing on other message boards is the natural sound of the stone being rolled away from the tomb of personal liberty.  It's normal, and to be expected.  The sunlight hurts some people's eyes, is all.  Don't judge them too harshly for it.

That's brilliant, Mike. Excellent reminder that not everyone sees this incident through the same set of lenses.

I decided against posting the link on a concealed carry gun forum I frequent, because I know it would degenerate into rants about Russell, instead of Dave, and how both should have "cooperated" with the police.

You have to tailor the message to the audience. Not all audiences are ready to receive the truth.

Sounds like the NRA. They've sold out.

Some folks think the only thing wrong is that the wrong group wields the stick. The "law and order" conservatives worship the power that cops have been given.

Some of them carry a gun every day ... and they don't want anyone to rock the boat. Only when the government denies them will they join us.
