zorkian: Icon full of binary ones and zeros in no pattern. (Default)
A gentleman by the name of William Kostric attended one of the healtcare "town halls" that President Obama has been leading. I call this out because Kostric showed up with a sidearm -- an openly carried pistol strapped to his right leg below the knee. (Which, just to note, is completely legal in New Hampshire, where this event was taking place.)

I don't really have much to say, but kudos! Kostric makes the point that if we do not exercise our rights then we lose them, and I think that's entirely valid. The more you don't stand up for what you believe in, for what is right, the more quickly you will lose those rights.

The video below is interesting, too. Chris Matthews is basically yelling at him, including swearing at one point, and the entire time Kostric keeps his cool, answers the questions, and defends himself calmly and rationally.

Good on you, William.
