Guns: If you've got 'em, flaunt 'em

  • PACKING: Guns and babes at Bryant demonstration.
The small but obnoxious group bent on forcing open carry of firearms on Arkansas (even Texas doesn't allow open carry of sidearms) continues its civil disobedience with open carry demonstrations.

Sooner or later, a law agency or prosecutor with backbone somewhere in Arkansas needs to arrest one of the pistol-packers in one of these strap-on demonstrations for a test case to clarify whether the Arkansas legislature really did — unbeknownst to the majority — inadvertently strip Arkansas law of limitations on carrying of handguns. 

Meanwhile, we will see more small groups of gun fetishists  with their strap-ons in demonstrations such as the one in Bryant yesterday covered by Fox 16.

If they succeed in deregulating firearm carry, the next gun nut move will be to insist on carrying the guns everywhere, including on commercial premises (think Starbucks) that don't want them. In their world, guns trump all. And they'll make you pay if you disagree.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
