Gunsmoke at Fuddruckers!

I wonder if Fuddruckers in Meridian is aware that it's Gunsmoke night on Saturday? The local gang from OpenCarry.org is planning a little "bring your handgun" shindig. Yo, Festus, order me some fries! Remember when these folks went to the Boise Zoo wearing their handguns last summer? Good times.

At least it isn't at Chuck E. Cheese's.

As entertaining as it all sounds, I'll probably steer clear of Fuddruckers. It's always difficult to slide into a restaurant booth while wearing a bulky bulletproof vest. Maybe the Fuddruckers waitresses can walk around swinging nunchuks or something.

UPDATED to add this video. Lighten up, people! It's an entertainment blog!


Here's the press release e-mailed to me:

Open Carry Is Legal and Lawful

Open carriers are legal citizens who have the right to bear arms. This is granted from birth by our creator. It is ensured to us by the United States Constitution in the 2nd Amendment. If you want to know more go read the constitution. Then read the Idaho constitution. People who openly carry are legal, lawful citizens who cherish freedom and follow the law. We are military members, law enforcement, people from all walks of life. What we all have in common is cherishing life and freedom and not wanting to be victims. Remember, "When seconds count, the police are only minutes away". And it has been ruled by the United States Supreme Courts, that it is not the duty of police to protect you. That is not their job. Your safety and security is up to you, and only you can ensure your safety 100% of the time.

Haha

What a loon. Love how the republican party has become that of redneck, uneducated, cult-religion-going, low class, fear mongering, whack jobs. These clowns have no chance.

Oh shut up! They went to a place called FUDDRUCKERS...

Yeah, I know it's a DIY hamburger place.

HOGWASH !

I totally agree with gun rights and all that, but I think it is getting insane. Do you really need to carry your gun to a flippin' burger joint ? Get real ! You are only looking to spark something. My dad has a concealed weapons permit but he doesn't flaunt it around like these town hall wack jobs. Use some common sense, BEFORE someone gets hurt. This is why people are anti gun because irrational people are carrying them around and acting like we are in the wild west.

hogwash??

Well I am glad your daddy actually supports the 2nd Amendment. Maybe you should read it and come to understand it better yourself. As for when and where I choose to carry, ARE YOU going to come and be my around the clock bodyguard? I think not, that takes a big committment. But I am willing to make the committment to my family, and myself and even YOU to be armed and prepared to defend all of the above. I do not go out looking for trouble. But I am prepared if trouble happens. I have that right. I have that responsibility because no one else does. People are irrational because of people like you. Look up the numbers, guns save lives, and incidents with people who open carry are so low its not funny. In fact more incidents do not occur because of open carriers and are not reported therefore you can not find anything on them. This isnt the Wild West as you put it. Those days are clearly gone. This is rational law abiding citizens taking personal responsibility for their safety and yours. So before you start trying to use inflammatory words and terrorize people, think about that.

Good Luck

Protecting your trailer from the Marines that Obama is sending over to collect your guns and ammo. Dip.

Now we are Fox News Channel, film at ten.

response to anti gunners..

Brickey vs. idaho 1902- the Idaho Supreme court ruled that Open Carry is "perfectly legal" in idaho. with todays economy, police officers being laid off, record unemployment, and idahoans not having the dispendible income, open carry offers a more cost effective mode to carry a weapon. you dont need an expensive permit,90 wait for the permit,inside the belt holster (about 90.00) for a good one, or have to by bigger clothes to conceal. i have been carrying openly in idaho since 1996 and have never had a problem.We are part of a national movement to educate the public and law enforcement that OC is legal in most states.I look forward to meeting more law abiding citizens on saturday..

CARRY ON,

mike l.

So anyone who wont give up their Constitutional Rights to a stranger for their comfort is irrational? You certainly wont give up your 1st amendment rights for my comfort, and not post here anymore???? so why do you ask that of me??
is it my fault you dont seem to know the laws pertaining to fire arms in idaho.. should I be punished because I do???
I have a choice in idaho regarding my method of carry,I am a law abiding citizen and I choose to open carry.

Carry On !!!

Uninformed people should get informed before posting

Mr. Deeds,
With people like you writing blogs like this it's no wonder that criminals feel free to walk the streets and strike where they choose. I for one choose not to be a victim and that is why I carry a gun. I open carry in plain view so that it deters criminals from choosing me as their target. I don't wake up in the morning and hope I get to shoot somebody, I really hope I don't have to.

The sad facts are that crime is rising, and as a woman with children I can only count on myself for protection, or are you gonna come protect me. The police can't always be there when I need them, and I will not be another crime statistic. Your posting is only helping to make sure that criminals get the upper hand and rob our businesses and homes, or is it only a coincidence that crime rises as less and less people own and carry guns.

You should remember that criminals are the ones that hide thier guns so they can surprize thier victims, oppen carryers carry their guns in full view so they can give the message of preventing crimes. My message to you and the rest of the uninformed is this: If you wanna go on being crime victims be my guest, but open carryers are not the bad guys,the criminals are; so focus on that and don't give me grief for having enough backbone to protect myself and my children.

Shoot the place up?

Yeah, we know that when people get together with guns, shootings occur, innocents are killed, and general mayhem ensues. Thats why there was so much trouble at the zoo. Oh wait, there wasn't. Thats right, no one was shot, intimidated, no animals harassed, no old ladies bullied. Same with the open carriers at the tea parties, at the public park in Caldwell, and all other run of the mill places where law abiding citizens carry firearms for self defence. One can try to blow the topic out of proportion, but the simple fact is, it is much safer to live in Idaho, where open carry is protected and concealed carry is easy and straight forward, than in Washington D.C., New York City, or Chicago, where carrying of any firearm for self defence is effectively forbidden. And try telling every police officer you see that his carrying a pistol openly is to compensate for mother nature short changing him. I sure that will go over well.

Call Fuddruckers ????

Are you serious, you are in effect calling for all rational people to boycott a local business man and affect his prosperity because you don't like when someone who is legal to do so, carry a gun openly. Oh and incase you didn't think ahead of time, that location is owned by a man, it is a franchise and he bought into it. Are you willing to break his piggy bank, because that is what you are doing. Come on, how about not being so self centered. You really that hurt, scared or affected by me walking past you in a parking lot. Really????

I have spent the last 13 years defending you and everyone in this country and will continue to do so proudly, regardless of your miss guided thoughts of me. I will even save your life and anyone else if I happen to see you being brutally beat by some meth addict in an alley in downtown Boise or in the mall parking lot somewhere. Don't think it can"t happen, ask the tons of victims who have been felt the pain of violent crimes and later said, "I had now way to defend myself".

We are not nut jobs, I am carreer military,I have met laywer's,law enforement,teachers, all who carry. Are you going to call a boycott on education because you find out one of your kids teachers carries a gun on his/her hip on the weekends or at night after leaving school grounds or hey that laywer carries so let the bad guys go free Wait, you are a rational individual,sorry I forgot.

Stay safe !!!!!

Yawn

What a joke. How about a story on bikers next.

Only if their women show up. Back to music, Michael?

response to irrational anti gunners.

I am excited to meet some good, honest, law abiding citizens tonight. idaho is definately the best state in the union. here we can choose to open carry or conceal carry on your person or in a vehicle. the state legislature has full preemption over all gun laws. We have the castle doctrine, civil immunity when we lawfully defend ourselves, and so much more.GOD BLESS IDAHO, ONE NATION UNDER GOD !!!

I'm not anti-gun, just irrational.

Agrees

Sir you are irrational. If you do not like how Idaho is, go back to Oregon, or better yet goto New Jersey. I'm sure you will love how it is there.

Newb!

Google crap or something. HA HA...I already live in Ontario, on the other side of Fruitland and have for 26 years.

I was born in Nampa, moved to Malheur County in 1978 and Ontario in 1983, as I have so merciliessly pounded into the neurons of whomever for whatever.

This is a lame way to drum up more readers, Michael. oh well.

open carry meet and greet in ontario

I would like to have an open carry meet in greet in ontario soon. I know some pro 2A business owners so we can have lunch/dinner. maybe we can do a litter pick up. have you seen ontario lately? when i drove thru, it reminded me of some parts of barstow, california. just a thought.
Cant wait to see everyone tonight.

Barstow? You must be loopy, Lupe.

While 9/10 armed robberies involve guns, most of the murders up until that Nyssa guy involved stabbing or strangulation.

BARSTOW.

PS Our cops are probably still a bit 9/11-ish as it is.

the meet and greet was a great time.. i look forward to more..

That's fine...

Still, I've lived here for 26 years and nearly 6 in Nyssa before that and how in the world do we look like Barstow?

PS We had a gun fan in Glendale in a Usenet group, even got his picture on the front page of some LA Times magazine story about gun owners. Sense of humor was a downer to say the least.

Basically, knock off the come down and check me out stuff. Heard that a few times and it's about as funny as Jim Bakker.

Terry Reilly doesn't serve Malheur County.

We have triggers here as well and I'm never too shy to use mine. You're not winning the war on my west, more like F Troop.
