A high school in Madison Heights, MI was placed in lockdown after a pro-gun advocate was seen carrying a rifle nearby.

According to 7 Action News, the man walked near Lamphere High School with a rifle strapped to his back. The police were subsequently called.

Moms Demand Action, a gun safety group, posted a video of the police confrontation with the open carry advocate on their Facebook page…

The man had a lengthy discussion with police officers about gun rights and public property. While the officers were polite, the man sprinkled his comments with numerous insults and refused to identify himself.

The officers said they just wanted to make sure that he wasn’t going on school property. The man eventually walked to city hall where he was confronted by another officer.

    Walking with a loaded gun near a school in this particular time with school slaughter happening about once a month, should be at the very least seen as threatening. Threatening violence or injury to others should be at the very least be a felony.
    Discussing, arguing and throwing insults at police has been shown to be hazardous to some even when they are unarmed, at the very least this guy should have been cuffed and placed in a cell.

    YOU want to try to not identify yourself to a cop????

      I bet if you did try, you’d either find yourself shot or face down in the mud with your hands behind your back.
      But a guy with a rifle can walk on or near school property and nothing happens to him..nothing.

    He would not have tried that stunt if he were not white.

      He would be dead if he were not white.

      My thoughts exactly. If he were a person of color, he would have been shot for making “threatening gestures”.

    That wasn’t very smart.

    This is stupidly amazing. If he has been black, he’d have been shot under half a minute tops.

    The paranoid, inadequate idiots who vote for these open carry laws and who need a gun to feel adequate will still defend them when a guy does this with the intent to shoot the children on the playground. Their answer to everything is more guns.

    He should have walked around NRA headquarters…oh, wait.
