Man protests with AK-47 outside KC federal courthouse

KANSAS CITY, Mo. A man with an unloaded AK-47 rifle marched back and forth in front of the Kansas City federal courthouse for about 30 minutes Friday morning.

Stan Nyhart, who resides in Hickory County, said he is upset with President Barack Obama's proposal to ban military-style assault rifles like his.

KMBC's Micheal Mahoney reported that Nyhart was watched closely by police during his protest march at the foot of the courthouse steps.

The police said Nyhart informed them in advance of his protest. Police said his weapon was checked. It was not loaded, and his protest was legal. He drew several stares from people who walked by him.

6. I'd think it'd be problematic if they did. I would say that any passerby could claim

self-defense or 'stand your ground' if they shot him. How would they know the gun wasn't loaded?

9. If This Guy Thinks His Open-Carry Stunt Advanced The Gun Rights Cause....


....he's too stupid to be entrusted with a firearm, as far as I'm concerned.

Was he goose-stepping during his little display?

Surely there is nothing intimidating about that!

19. I'll be happy with this kind of protest any day

 

He notified police. Received permission. Peacefully protested his grievances.

Gotta love that 1st Amendment!

28. The right, not the message, is what's most important

 

I disagree, sometimes even laugh, at most "protests," but I sure as heck don't want to take away their right to.

23. I'm prone to calling people like that morons to their face.

What's he going to do?

Even better would be a group of people standing, pointing at the guy, and laughing loudly.

29. Nothing wrong with what he did, IMO.

 

He broke no laws and was using 2nd amendment rights in addition to his first amendment rights. Regardless of whether or no you agree with the message or his means, his actions are about as democratic/american as it gets.
