When did anyone give state congresses the authority to pass laws telling someone if they can "open carry" or not? "Open carry" sounds like bearing arms to me. What if you change the words than it is OK? Are we really that easy to fool? I am not a lawyer maybe someone can explain this to me.

Exactly right. "Shall not be infringed" has come to mean "no new gun laws"... And even the would-be conservative, gun-supporting politicians refuse to support overturning existing gun laws, even though they're equally as unconstitutional as any "new" laws would be.

A decorated war veteran on a Boy Scout hike with his 15-year-old son was arrested alongside a Texas country road after a police officer accused him of “rudely displaying” a firearm.

Army Master Sgt. C.J. Grisham told Fox News he was illegally disarmed by members of the Temple Police Dept. - even though he held the proper permits to carry his weapons.

Grisham and his son were on a 10-mile hike in a rural area populated by wild boars and cougars. He was carrying an AR-15 rifle and a .45 caliber pistol.

He was charged with resisting arrest - even though...
