    No. Actually Master Sgt. Grisham was arrested for his behavior.

    This issue has been kicking around this week on another gun site I belong to. Basically (IMO) this boils down to a grandstanding asshat looking for trouble. When he finds it, he sets up a "legal defense fund" to solicit donations. This isn't the first time. MSG Grisham is apparantly known in the Temple, TX area for exhibiting this type of behavior, then scamming people for his financial benefit.

    Then he goes on to spend the money on himself & his family. I'm not going to bother digging through that other thread looking for all of the links ... But basically, he went on facebook talking about how his wife was going to use the "legal defense fund" to pay for his daughter to go to prom.

    It's grandstanding morons like this that give law abiding gun owners a bad name. I seriously wish he would just STFU already.

    Something tells me if you take a look at the open carry laws you will find a few of them he broke. Now obviously the officer didn't use the best choice of words, but the 2nd Amendment doesn't give you the right to strap a rifle to your back and act like the village idiot!

    In Texas, IIRC, you can open carry a long gun.

    Now...Again, as some people have said; This sort of "Trolling for trouble" smacks of hippie tactics to me.
    I find it abhorrent.

    Thanks Shifty!

    I read his arrest was within 1000ft of a airport if that's the case a b class misdemeanor is lucky

    Not sure how true that part was, but I find it very interesting he is active duty and using his military status to solicite defense funds from the public. That is a clear violation of the military code of conduct I'm surprised the Army CID hasn't stepped in. That and it doesn't cost $11,000 to defend a B Misdemeanor

    I think the worst for me was when I was 21 I just bought my first new car a brand new Explorer. The salesman forgot to put the temp plate on and I got pulled over for a felony stop cops thought I stole it. Here I am 10pm face down at gun point in the dirt once he got my bill of sale he was really sorry about it. Talk about a damper on the car buying experience

    Florida recently changed our conceal carry laws for the better IMO, I am not sure if we have to present on a traffic stop. As a rule of thumb I will always present I would rather the LEO know about it then think I am hiding it or trying to one up them.
