Army sergeant ‘illegally arrested and disarmed’ carrying hunting rifle

The gun-grabbing campaign of a Texas prosecutor came to a head recently when an active-duty Army sergeant was spotted “rudely displaying” a hunting rifle while hiking with his son.

Sgt. C.J. Grisham, stationed at Ft. Hood, Texas, said his gun was slung over his shoulder in a non-threatening manner. This is the latest example in a series of incidents “exacerbated in part by an Obama-supporting prosecutor described as a ‘bandleader’ of anti-gun efforts in the heavily conservative community.
according to The Daily Caller.

The Daily Caller reported:

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.

“While out hiking with my son through backcountry roads to help him earn his Eagle Scout rank, I was illegally arrested and disarmed without cause. I was thrown in jail and my lawfully owned weapons were confiscated without receipt or notice,” Grisham wrote on his legal defense fund website.

A video of the arrest, filmed by Grisham’s son, indicates he was being arrested on the basis of a complaint that was called in.

“And did you explain to them what the law is, sir?” Grisham asked.

“They don’t care what the law is,” the officer said.

“Do you care what the law is?” the sergeant fired back.

Apparently not.
