So Much For The Free State Of Arizona…

Az Flag, in distress

Arizona Flag, in distress

Free North Carolina (via avordvet) shares with us an ARIZONA story, of statists versus freemen.

To press the point, a free man, legally carrying a pistol openly, tried to photograph a Phoenix federal courthouse.

The audacity!

Not of the freeman photographer, but of the authorities, who promptly dispatched police helicopters and ground personnel to stop the terrorist attack legally-armed photographer from photographing a public building.

Seriously, don’t they have better things to do?  Like catching real bad guys?  I can see watching, and perhaps even tracking such an individual for security intel, but confronting, attempting to disarm?

This used to be a relatively free State, at least when compared to places like Massachusetts.

Not anymore.

  1. They’re everywhere, these days … and not enough of us are speaking up to make a difference.

    It still, relatively speaking. Remember the lock down and house to house search for a teenager? People weren’t even allowed to go out into their own yards. Your not there yet. But we all get closer every day.

    Read this, be sure to follow the link. It’s a lot more frightening than most people think.

  3. Other than the helicopter, a pretty polite encounter. No violence, no rights violated. Win/Win.

  4. A fellow I work with told me that he was not allowed to take photographs at the state capitol, and was sent packing by the capitol Police, and he was not armed. This was back in 2009, and the day he told me about this, was the day I went down there for the Tea Party rally where lots of people had cameras. Maybe it has to do with whether congress is in session or not?

  6. If we let people take pictures the terrorists win dontchaknow.

    So you take a few pictures (armed or not) and cops ask “Why are you taking pictures?”
    Wouldn’t a perfectly reasonable response be “Cause its mine and I wanted to take a picture?”
