2nd Amendment Rights Under Attack (Again.)

Gun rights advocates have a California police detective in their crosshairs after he apparently posted comments on Facebook advocating that "open carry" supporters should be shot. - East Palo Alto PoliceDet. Rod Tuason apparently posted the remarks on his Facebook page in response to a friend's status update, which suggested that gun advocates who carry unloaded weapons openly — which is legal in California — should do so in places like "Oakland, Richmond and East Palo Alto" and not just in "hoity toity" cities.

In a disturbing story, from California, of course, a Police Detective in East Palo Alto, mad comments on a Facebook Friend's thread, about those who exercise their 2nd Amendment rights, and openly carry an UNLOADED handgun, in a holster. Detective Rod Tuason, posted this comment on Facebook "Haha we had one guy last week try to do it. He got proned out [laid face-down on the ground] and reminded where he was at and that turds will jack him for his gun in a heartbeat!"

He goes on to write "Sounds like you had someone practicing their 2nd amendment rights last night! Should've pulled the AR out and prone them all out! And if one of them makes a furtive movement … 2 weeks off!!!" -- referring to the modified duty, commonly known as desk duty, that typically follows any instance in which an officer is investigated for firing his weapon.

This is a Law-Enforcement officer advocating shooting citizens for exercising their rights, and FOLLOWING THE LAW, in doing so! If anyone thinks we're not already living in a "Police State", this story should at least give them pause! Law-abiding citizens, who choose to openly exercise their rights, are under attack at every turn! Coupled with last year's MIAC report, in which Missouri State Law Enforcement was told to look for symbols such as the Gadsden Flag, or Ron Paul for President Stickers, as signs of possible "domestic terrorists", and went on to name former members of the military, and gun rights advocates, as other "potentially dangerous" individuals, it is becoming clear that we can no longer fully rely on the Police to "protect and serve". It seems more and more likely that they view their jobs as to "enforce and constrain."

This is still America, but for how much longer? Liberty is under attack, and we must stand up, even in the face of "Law Enforcement", that is bent on controlling us! The time is rapidly approaching, when writing a post like this one, will be an imprisonable offense, unless we all unite, and make a stand at the ballot boxes, and we MUST start at the primaries in July!
