They'll Arrest You For Breastfeeding, But Feel Free To Walk The Streets-ARMED TO THE TEETH



A pair of mouth-breathing morons strolled around the streets of Portland this week to “educate” the public about the 2nd Amendment.

Commenter Aimai over at Balloon Juice said the following:

The portland guys really piss me off, and freak me out. I think several schools went on lockdown? What are you supposed to think, ordinary citizen, when two young men walk by you armed to the teeth? You’d be crazy not to start running for the exits. Why is it that in half the country they would arrest you for breastfeeding in public but this kind of “disturbing the peace” and creating a nuisance/danger to the public is forcibly legal?

Twenty-eight states, the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands exempt breastfeeding from public indecency laws. (Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Illinois ..

6. I think in this case it is a Boob With a Gun.

boob noun \ˈbüb\
Definition of BOOB
1: a stupid awkward person : simpleton
2: boor, philistine
— boob·ish \ˈbü-bish\ adjective

Sure enough !!

4. The disconnect is truly bizarre. One positive I see is that the more these morons leap out of the

landscape into "greater glory", the faster the normal, everyday citizen gets a glimpse of the radical paranoids that lurk beneath "2nd Amendment Rights" and will more quickly force the modernization of colonial laws.

Good juxtaposition.

8. Even if what these guys did

was legal, it was also stupid.

I also doubt that in jursidictions where breast feeding is not legal in public, that actual arrests are made. It is more likely a situation where a citation (ticket payable through a fine) is issued.

10. That's why I think mandatory open carry is the only way to go

There's all kinds of people running around most places in America with weaponry that for most practical purposes is as destructive as those rifles, they're just keeping the guns hidden from you.

I don't understand the mentality that allows concealed carry and freaks right the fuck out over a couple of guys with rifles. I want to know about *all* guns in my vicinity when I'm out in public and the only way to accomplish that is mandatory open carry with major teeth in it.
