I found some comments at a news site to be downright dripping with bigotry;
This is why I'm against open carry. Now men who are overly enamored with wheapons think they need to be armed to go shopping or out to dinner. If they truely wanted to educate the public on responsible gun ownership, then they shouldn't have shown such disrespect to the police. Was it really such a big deal to show your ID, accept a few appologies for the interruption and go back to your meal?
and the ever present "guns as a phallic symbol" argument....
So 5 guys walk into a crowded restaurant displaying guns and hoping to cause a stir. They got what they wanted and now they're crying foul. This is aside from the practical fact that any firing of guns in crowded public spaces is likely to kill people that the gunner isn't actually aiming at, so called "stray" bullets. So it's intentional threatening and intimidating behavior and definitly disorderly. This is not common behavior, bringing weapons into busy public spaces.
I WANT groups of armed men checked out by the police and am thankful that such outrageous behavior is rare.
Aside from the disorderly issue, one has to wonder about these guys confidence in their masculinity. Just like the dolts driving Hummers, there's probably something lacking if you know what I mean. As for judgement, there is a reason some are called "gun nuts".
Bottom line, folks like you didn't like black people eating at their lunch counters, and it's ok to step on other peoples Constitutionally protected rights (both State and Federal) as long as it keeps "those uppity gun niggers" out of sight.
So even though it isn't my fight, if you have a few dollars to spare, consider tossing them to the guys who are taking the fight to the courts. http://www.wisconsincarry.org/default.html#
