Every Friday we go out and exercise our right to free assembly and protest the government. We call it #ForLibertyFridays. Usually we gather on a street corner during rush hour traffic and waive signs and flags. Some of us open carry rifles and side arms too. We have never had any problems whatsoever from the police or sheriff, who have always known the laws, and only treated us with respect.
Today I decided just to stay in front of my house in Rochester Hills instead of our usual location. I was outside with my rifle and my Gadsden “don’t tread of me” flag how I usually do. After about 15 minutes of doing this was when the first officer (and the 5 other cars right after) rolled up on me, and demanded that I put my rifle down and walk over to him. The he began yelling on the loudspeaker “not to point the gun at him”, when I absolutely certainly did not and it facing the ground. I stood there until he told me not to create a “Bad Situation” and unholstered his weapon. I felt threatened and didn’t want to risk this cop who probably watches too many crime shows to shoot me in the back. I laid my gun down on the ground, while showing my him hands (one hand holding my smartphone) and then walked towards him. He then ordered another officer to seize my rifle that I had set on the ground.
