"Gun-toting advocates" make the headlines [View all]

From the Detroit News:
http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20120612/METRO02/206120376/Gun-toting-advocates-protest-charges-against-teen-Birmingham

(Note that this is Birmingham, Michigan, not Birmingham, Alabama. Last time I posted an article on this guy's case, we got to hear about how this was expected from the rednecks in Alabama. Some prejudices run deep, it would appear.)

Birmingham— Gun toting advocates filled the Birmingham commission chambers Monday night, displaying their firearms in holsters and strapped to their backs in protest of charges against a teen they say had the legal right to do the same in public.

"It seems like cooler heads should prevail and the charges should fall," said Dave Campbell, a Westland resident involved with AR15.com, a website and resource center for gun supporters.

At issue is the April 13 arrest of Sean M. Combs, a Troy High School student, after he strolled Old Woodward Avenue in downtown Birmingham with a M-1 rifle strapped to his back.

He faced three misdemeanor charges for brandishing a weapon, resisting and obstructing police, and disturbing the peace — each punishable by up to 93 days in jail.


I guess "gun-toters" is an acceptable label, after all.
