Herschel Smith's take on Bob Owens' take on the Houston Police Officer Open Carry Stop.

The officer was a jackass, but worse than that, he was wrong as to the details and application of the law, like many LEOs today are. Before the bed-wetters blow their bladders, they need to study the law a little bit. And Bob Owens needs to educate his readers rather than allowing the pooling of ignorance in comments over his web site. That is unseemly and undignified.

Folks have become so used to a police state that they now think you're supposed to turn over information about yourself to any cop for any reason he deems fit. Firstly, how do we know this P.O. is a 3%er. Because he says so? Obama says he's for the second amendment, you believe him? Secondly, the cop uses bad choices of words a few times for someone that's a threeper. " Constitutional crap" I believe was the phrase he spoke. And "my street" (instead of our street) is a term more worthy of corner drug dealers, or other classes of thugs who come over and shake you down whilst walking on "their street". And if he's truly looking for " felons" as he puts it, would someone standing around, making no nuisance of himself, just shouldering a long gun for all to see, really fit the M.O. of a felon? Personally, i might choose a guy covering his face and changing his walking direction when he sees police approaching as to avoid them. Not the guy standing there just waiting for me. Since when does being a P.O. give you the right to know who everybody is at all times? If that's the case then I too want to know who everybody is, just in case you're one of those unlawful tyrants in Gov't that I might one day have to reckon with. Or does wearing a blue costume give you rights above mine?

Cop needs to do some additional training. Departments should educate their officers on all aspects of gun laws, so this type of thing won't happen again.

Soon facial recognition software tied to drivers licenses will make this a thing of the past. Cops wearing cameras will know who you are instantly, if you have a state issued picture ID. Illegals of course will still walk the streets unknown as a protected class, with no ID chanting "Obama, Obama" when detained.

Bob Owens isn't being paid to tell the truth; his paycheck is all about promoting the slant of those who write that paycheck!

Owens is a copsucker of the first order.
I stopped following his blog after he celebrated the cops summarially executing Chris Dorner by burning the house down around him a la Waco.
To add insult to that injury, he blocked me (and presumably all other dissenters) from comments after I criticized his praise of the barbecue by posting a comment stating that the police state response was irresponsible, reprehensible, and way over the top (remember how the cops wounded several innocent people, riddling their vehicles with dozens of rounds, despite the fact that neither the people nor the vehicles matched the description of Dorner or his vehicle any more than I and my F150 would match a BOLO for the Incredible Hulk driving the Batmobile.)
Owens also goes overboard in criticizing the open carry movement and any other gun rights activity that offends his Fuddness.
In short, IMNSHO, Owens is a pontificating gasbag unworthy of a following.
