Vet Arrested For Carrying AR-15 On Boy Scout Hike Gets Ultimate Surprise At NRA Convention

 

 

” When Army Master Sgt. C.J. Grisham was arrested in March for what police in Temple, Texas called “rudely displaying” his rifle, the story quickly gained attention. While the police department is still holding onto Grisham’s AR-15 and .45 caliber pistol, he got a huge surprise at the NRA convention in Houston on Friday when Black Rain Ordnance offered to give him, yes give him, his choice of an AR-15.

Co-founder of Black Rain Ordnance, Charlie Spires, told The Blaze at the convention, “When we heard about his situation, it was obvious that his rights were trampled on. Then we hear that they basically confiscated his weapon and he can’t get it back — what can we do? That was the next question we asked.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Police, ‘Anti-Gun’ Prosecutor Clash With Soldiers In Area Around Fort Hood [VIDEO]

The conflict between law enforcement and armed military personnel in the community around Fort Hood, one of America’s largest military bases, has recently and repeatedly involved the issue of gun control — and the tension has been exacerbated in part by an Obama-supporting prosecutor described as a “bandleader” of anti-gun efforts in the heavily conservative community.

The conflict reached a fever pitch last month, when Texas police arrested an active-duty army sergeant for “rudely displaying” a hunting rifle. The sergeant, C.J. Grisham, established an online legal defense fund after he was, in his words, “illegally arrested and disarmed” for carrying the firearm.

Grisham, who is stationed at Fort Hood, was arrested in his hometown of Temple, Texas, east of the base, after police stopped him for carrying an unconcealed rifle slung over his shoulder. Texas is a right-to-carry state, and law-abiding gun permit owners can carry rifles and hunting weapons openly, so long as the weapons are not being carried in a threatening way.

But one of the Temple police officers told Grisham that anyone holding a gun is considered dangerous, according to the video.
