The Way Texas Cop Responds to Group of Armed Open Carry Advocates Makes This Video Viral-Worthy – Just Not for the Reason You Might Expect

As we’ve noted in previous reports, sometimes things can spin out of control when open carry activists and police officers meet. That was certainly not the case in Austin, Texas, when an officer responded to a call about “suspicious” men openly carrying rifles.

In a video posted on YouTube in January by the activist group Come and Take It Texas, an officer is seen approaching the armed men in a non-aggressive fashion.

“Just checking you guys out,” he says in the video. “I already know the law.”

Wouldn't this be a great country if all cops were like this patriot?

I hope this guy doesn't get thrown under the bus by the anti-gun groups!

This is how Mike Lewis and company should have responded in the video they produced. But NO, Mike is really NOT supporting the Constitutional rights of citizens and I quote, "you can't carry that down the middle of the street", and "an officer may shoot you"...

And, as evidenced by the smaller officers response when he drove up to the scene in the video, he was confrontational, he was demanding and responding illegally, he also asked for I.D. with no justification.

Wico Sheriffs are NOT supporting the letter of the law or the Constitution even if they say they do and are.
