Thanks Amuk, You have enlightened me (once again) to the absolute B.S. that is being forced down our gullets in the name of "security".

Skippy you have yet to say what you think of the video?
Is this the way the government should "protect" its elderly?
You read my first reply?
Yes I have seen the video. Should old ladies be tackled? No, but I would have tackled her too if she waved that gun at me.

... but it is unacceptable for American citizens to consider constitutional infrigements as unimprotant. It seems the prevalent opinion in reagrds to actions such as those taken against the elderly women is that they are justified because she had a gun and refused direct police orders. I am shocked to have to say this is not the case. The legality of an action is relative, obviously firing upon a police officer when in a situation such as the old woman found herself in is considered illegal.

I don't know. Is there any additional factual information surrounding this video? Has anyone had any luck in this department?

You know... Its funny, they were doing # like this up in NYC during the RNC. Nobody said anything..
And another thing, they have been condiscating legal weapons in I think IOWA and Illinois I have to recheck on that, but they would go house to house and collect legally registered weapons for no appearent reason.
Bitching on some conspircy # on how lowsy the world is.. and actually put thier bitching into action.
Whether you love or hate guns.. Go get one cause soon it will be your only freind.

Firstly - you can't blame this guy, he was just doing his Job and following Orders.
Who does the Amendment mean by the "militia"?
Who does the Amendment mean by "the people"?
What "arms" does the Amendment protect?
What does mean a "well regulated"?
Still - this Granny was White and Old.
Imagine a Video of a Young, Black Man being stormed in his house - while he said those same words as the Granny did? How many would be outraged at that event? He is also a Citizen of New Orleans and of United States, therefore he is protected by the First and the Second Amendment. So - why would people look differently at these two events? Just because he is Black - that makes him a "born criminal"?
