Man arrested for having pitchfork

Few realize that you can legally carry a tool if it is not brandished in a non-threatening manner. Biker gangs carry ball peen hammers for this reason. But apparently, if you wear a “Don’t tread on me” t-shirt, normal laws are null and void.

To add insult to injury, Arizona is an “open carry” state. This means that you can legally wear a handgun or other weapon as long as it is visible (in full view). Apparently during the arrest of this “Patriotic farmer” several people walked by with guns in full view, and were not arrested. Perhaps he should have worn a “Yes we can” T-shirt.

Beware people, there is a movement to try to negate our rights because of our anti-Government, pro-Capitalist views. But this is the reason we fight in the first place. We strive for laws that are applied equally to all.

We have made great strides in this, such in the area of “concealed carry permits”. It was not so long ago that the only people able to access CCW permits were not the abused woman, the stalked, or those who carry large sums of money for their business transactions–it was the contributor to the local Democrat party. It is no wonder that Rosie O’Donell has no problem having her bodyguards armed, but wants us all disarmed.

The real area of worry is that the Obama Administration has not forgotten the area of gun rights (although said rights are in the Constitution) as a goal of something he wants to deal with (squash).
And their first goal is the tired old so-called “assault weapons ban”.
See a great story on this here.

Namely, the attempt is being made via the “We are flooding Mexico with our assault weapons” argument. Something that is patently false.
If this is such a threat to President Obama, perhaps he should tighten the borders, no? But of course, this would mean stopping the never ending flood of potential Democrat voters that Mr Obama so covets.

The end game will be a country where any man or woman can be searched at the will of the authorities, where any benign object will be a potential weapon, and the very right to self defense or political objection will be eradicated.

The main weapon to destroy these rights? Political Correctness. They are already expelling children for having a tiny “G.I. Joe” gun or butter knife. The message to children being, “Guns are bad, never touch one”. And this Liberal message is meant to extend to adulthood, where metrosexualized mobs of sheepish Americans gladly hand over their rights as if it is a “tithe” to the great church of Mommy Government.

These rights we will not give up, nor will we bend to the will of the Bureaucrat.

    Don’t know what to say. I didn’t read the entire article but if the pitchfork was symbolic then he shouldn’t have brought a real one. I have no idea why he got arrested for it. Is it against the law to bring something like that in there? Now be honest with yourself. You can’t just always stick up for the guy who is on your side of the issues. If he is weird then he is weird, period. Maybe you would do something like that. I would never think of it. Just seems a bit over the edge. I just don’t understand the point he was making. Enlighten me.

    I have thought about this some more and the only thing I can conclude is that It is my opinion that the man should not have been arrested. He should have been given a chance to explain why he had the pitchfork and then if the policy is that it could not be brought in that he leave it outside/in his car or whatever. I stand on my opinion that anyone trying doing something that much out of the ordinary is asking to be frowned upon. It just makes gun rights activist look bad/nutty. There are better ways to get a point across.

    Oh, one other thing. A tool? Hmmm. Was the building in need of removing hay? Maybe he should have brought a shovel. They work better for what he might find in there.

    I agree with most of your thoughts, LCR. I do wonder, however, if we will get to the point where any “tool” will become “not friendly for work” such as a pocket knife. I carry two pocket knives, a concealed handgun (at times with a backup) and a flashlight most places I go. Certainly, while I don’t anticipate a war as I go about my daily business, I do think there are situations that arise where Americans need to take action, as in helping a woman who is being attacked.

    I will say that it does seem a bit “goofy” to wear a pitchfork to a place of business, unless you are a farmer (maybe he was? lol), but I notice that they are coming down on people in “open carry states” like Wisconsin and Arizona for “openly carrying”. Again, it seems the attempt is being made to weaken and metrosexualize our nation from the ground (and grade school) on up.
