Video James Eric Fuller Arrested, Accused of Threats Against Tea Party Spokesman

From the who-are-the-dangerous-hate-yelling-ones-again? department
1/16/2011 update at the bottom, now with video of the arrest

This happened at an ABC News taping.  Guess who else works for ABC News?

Trent Humphries: Victim of Verbal Threat
(Falcone and Walter accused Sarah Palin of inserting herself into Giffords story)


Arizona shootings: Injured victim arrested, accused of threats - latimes.com:
"James Eric Fuller, a 63-year-old Democratic activist, was arrested after shouting "You're dead!" at Tucson Tea Party spokesman Trent Humphries, said Pima County Sheriff's Department spokesman Jason Ogan. Fuller was shot in the knee and back Jan. 8 when a gunman opened fire, killing six and injuring 13, including Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. 
Fuller, a disabled veteran and former campaign volunteer for Giffords, was charged with making threats, intimidation and disorderly conduct and was involuntarily committed for a psychiatric evaluation, Ogan said.

In an interview with Democracy Now on Thursday, Fuller linked the shooting to conservative leaders associated with the tea party, including Sarah Palin, Fox News commentator Glenn Beck and Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle. 'It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle and the rest got their first target,' Fuller said."
If all in this LA Times story is correct, a Democratic activist, who was shot multiple times by a nutty guy Marxist never associated with the Tea Party, yelled unsolicited threats at a Tea Party person, just like Olbermann and Matthews do on MSDNC.  When do Conservatives do this sort of thing?  How long before we hear this is Sarah Palin's fault too?  Stay classy.

Where was all of this "rapid reaction" when Jared Lee Loughner was harassing people before his shooting rampage? Sheriff Dupnik? Hello?

Update 1/16/2011: Fuller was creating an atmosphere of hate before scabs formed on his wounds.
Meet Eric Fuller
The Left finds a new icon.
by John Hayward
01/14/2011
Fuller gave an interview with the Democracy NOW radio show, in which he said of the Tucson shootings: “It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle, and the rest got their first target.” Presumably he’s not talking about Judge John Roll.
“Their wish for Second Amendment activism has been fulfilled,” Fuller ranted on, “senseless hatred leading to murder, lunatic fringe anarchism, subscribed to by John Boehner, mainstream rebels with vengeance for all, even 9-year-old girls.” I didn’t realize the Second Amendment called for all those things. They must be lurking in one of the penumbras or emanations.
Still does not sound like a Beck or Palin fan.  Did he really manage to leave Rush Limbaugh out of this?  I have not gone to the Democracy NOW transcript to see (just had breakfast and I would like to keep it).

Putting on my "Psychic Suki" ball cap to predict: The Left will claim he suffers from Palin/Beck/Limbaugh fatigue and was engaging in his First Amendment Right to spew death threats at 'fascists'. We all need to understand, the man was shot by a fascist inspired by Sarah Palin.

Arrest Video of Fuller:


The Geraldo Rivera version - Geraldo Eats Crow via Barracuda Brigade:


And isn't his business card precious:
Fuller, age 63, is a political operative who specializes in gathering petitions for ballot initiatives. Before the program began, he passed out business cards to people sitting around him that read:
"Signatures
"Expediting Initiatives since 2006
"J. Eric Fuller
"Political Circulator."
I can never match the fairy-tail telling skills of the Left.

Bob Jacobson: In Tucson, One Week Later: "The (Gun) Show Must Go On!": "Exactly one week after the attempted assassination in Tucson of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, Pima County, in which Tucson is located, is hosting a gun show. And not just any gun show: according to blogs on the right, Crossroads of the West is in Tucson having been 'thrown out' of 'radical' jurisdictions like Los Angeles County.

The L.A. County supervisors decided that Crossroads was a den of domestic arms dealers inciting irresponsible gun use in the nation's largest county. So Crossroads fled across the border to open in Tucson. Its logo: crosshairs. Nice symbolism. Good timing."
The story above was probably #1 with a bullet at HuffPo.
Nice hysteria.  I shall wager to guess that the level of violence at the L.A. County gun show was much lower than in East L.A.
Yes, rifle scope crosshairs there.
No, not rifle crosshairs.
I love the old west! Like my rat rod?

Hey Dupnik, don't complain about people responding to your baseless attacks.

Sheriff Dupnik
The first stone thrown, as any rational person can see, was by Sheriff Dupnik. A short timeline:

Sat., 10:10 AM 9 JAN 2011 - HOR Giffords is shot and, in his news conference, Sheriff Dupnik blamed talk radio:
Via Washington Post Online:
Posted at 9:16 AM ET, 01/ 9/2011
Sheriff Dupnik's criticism of political 'vitriol' resonates with public 
By Sandhya Somashekhar
In a news conference Saturday evening, Dupnik condemned the "atmosphere of hatred and bigotry" that he said has gripped the nation and suggested that the 22-year-old suspect being held in the shooting was mentally ill and therefore more susceptible to overheated messages in the media.

"There's reason to believe that this individual may have a mental issue. And I think people who are unbalanced are especially susceptible to vitriol," he said during his televised remarks. "People tend to pooh-pooh this business about all the vitriol we hear inflaming the American public by people who make a living off of doing that. That may be free speech, but it's not without consequences."

His remarks especially resonated with liberals, who even before the name of the suspect was released suggested that the shooter may have had been incited by the tea party. There is no indication that the suspect, Jared Lee Lougner, identified with the tea party or was politically conservative. During the campaign, liberal pundits and politicians asserted that the sometimes militant language some conservative politicians used could incite violence. 
Rest assured, they were not talking about the likes of Olbermann and Matthews.  The thing is, those two call for more violence and hate in one broadcast than all of Conservative Talk Radio ever did.  The Conservatives spend a lot of time quoting Leftist hate speech.  Like mentioning the Daily Kos saying that Giffords was dead to them, two days before her shooting, for voting against Pelosi for minority leader.

Rush Limbaugh
Mon., 10 JAN 2011 - Rush Limbaugh did not make any public statements about the ultra-leftist sheriff, who does not want to enforce Arizona law unless forced to in his sanctuary city, until his show aired at noon, Eastern Time.  He said the sheriff made a fool of himself by trying to link the shooting to
Limbaugh, Arizona sheriff feud over comments - Atlanta Journal Constitution
Limbaugh railed against Democrats who would draw a link between the shooting and political rhetoric, and the conservative talk show host said Dupnik "made a fool of himself" for making that same connection.

"Don't kid yourself," Limbaugh said. "What this is all about is shutting down any and all political opposition and eventually criminalizing it."

Not content with his prior foolishness, the sheriff had to go on ABC News that evening and spout:
Link here and video below.
"The kind of rhetoric that flows from people like Rush Limbaugh, in my judgment he is irresponsible, uses partial information, sometimes wrong information," Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik said today. "[Limbaugh] attacks people, angers them against government, angers them against elected officials and that kind of behavior in my opinion is not without consequences."


Just what "anger" is that, sheriff? Anger at irresponsible government officials? Anger at government waste? Anger at government sticking its nose where it does not belong?

One who disagrees with the sheriff is Zach Osler, a friend of Loughner, whose comments raise further doubt about Limbaugh's guilt. "He did not watch TV," Osler said of Loughner. "He disliked the news. He didn't listen to political radio. He didn't take sides. He wasn't on the left. He wasn't on the right."

ABC news found Zach too.  Why couldn't the sheriff's department and get off of their hunt for Florida media personalities in a quest to find real answers?

Was Rush wrong about the sheriff making a fool out himself? The short answer is: No.

This sheriff was already on record, as noted above, vowing not to enforce identity checks on people stopped for traffic violations, or other infractions.  Now we know that Jared Lee Loughner had been reported to the sheriff's department numerous times for death threats against people in town, that the sheriff's department blew off because Loughner's mother works for the county.  To top it off, if he actually was getting the mental health care that the sheriff's department was lying about to callers, he could have been denied the legal purchase of a firearm.  If he had been arrested and convicted of his death threats, he would have been denied the sale of a firearm.

Campus police at the local community college he attended had numerous complaints of his disruptions on record.  Their most recent release is fifty pages long. The sheriff's department resisted inquiries for release of their records related to Loughner, in further violation of Arizona law which seems to be the only consistent thing in their office procedure.  When they finally released something, it was twelve incident reports, little of it related to the behavior Loughner displayed at community college. Example from the link:
May 27, 1994: Loughner's father complained that a yellow Chevrolet Camaro was speeding near his house.
So, sheriff, you say Rush Limbaugh caused all your problems with this case?  When Loughner is freed because of your personal bungling, will you blame Rush for that too?

I Hear Obama's Speech Was Good and Included a Messiah Moment! Now With Video

Related 1/15/2011: James Fuller's death threats create an atmosphere of fear.
Update 1/13/2011: Video below. Plus, when she really opened her eyes for the first time.
Caught the word that Obama's speech last night was a good one.  Too bad he did not know how to give a good speech for the victims of Major Hasan at Fort Hood, Texas.

They keep playing clips of the speech, so I found a transcript. This is interesting:

I have just come from the University Medical Center, just a mile from here, where our friend Gabby courageously fights to recover even as we speak.  And I want to tell you -- her husband Mark is here and he allows me to share this with you -- right after we went to visit, a few minutes after we left her room and some of her colleagues in Congress were in the room, Gabby opened her eyes for the first time.  (Applause.)  Gabby opened her eyes for the first time.  (Applause.)
 Italics mine.
Another messiah moment!  Another messiah moment? Not quite:
B. Poole TucsonSentinel.com
Giffords is in a drug-induced coma in intensive care. Doctors frequently awaken her to check her responsiveness, and she could open her eyes and respond to simple commands Sunday - an encouraging sign, said Rhee said.
Sunday was a few days before the concert memorial.

I was looking for the witchdoctor pictures, but had to settle for this.

Daley: Blame gun laws, not Palin

Chicago's very own Mayor Daley
In another whoosh moment, Chicago's very own Mayor Daley gets the point that Limbaugh and Palin had nothing to do with the murders and attempted murders in Tuscon. Then he calls for abolishing the rights of Americans to carry handguns.

Daley: Blame gun laws, not Palin - Chicago Sun-Times:
"“America has to blame people. . . . That’s the thing that really bothers me. They’re trying to blame the left or the right or Sarah Palin. Or they’re trying to blame political ads or rhetoric on TV. . . . . It has nothing to do with it,” Daley said.

“Everybody has free speech. People can shout and say anything they want. But they have no right to buy a gun . . . that has a clip of fifteen rounds. . . . It’s not the rhetoric. . . . It’s the right to carry these guns or have guns like this that kill people — and that’s what that individual did. You could have all the guards you want. If someone’s five feet from your or ten feet with a gun like this, no one is gonna stop anyone.”"
Talk about missing the point!

COL Bill Badger (Ret.), hero.
For one thing, Colonel Bill Badger (retired) ran to the gunfire, was grazed by a bullet and had his legally owned pistol at the ready as Jared Lee Loughner was being subdued and helped restrain Loughner.  In interviews he has said that he was ready to shoot whomever was doing the shooting.  If Loughner had loaded his next magazine, there is no doubt that the COL(R) would have dropped him with a few shots.

COL Badger is something that Mayor Daley will never be.  A hero.

Sarah Palin. On topic, on target.

Sarah did not say anything publicly about this until yesterday, after idiots like you made her the undeserved center of the story.

The mainstream media has become such an out-of-touch echo chamber that it is beyond a joke.  Sarah was placed in the center of the story by you people, your industry and a two-bit leftist sheriff in Pima county Arizona.

Oh Yea, Jared Lee Loughner is soooooo Tea Party!

Posted this in my Slashdot Journal, but I can't illustrate it there very well :)
Related 1/15/2011: James Fuller's death threats create an atmosphere of fear.


The running tally of Loughner's Tea Party-ness
via TMZ.Com
1. He was into Sarah Palin, his Facebook Page said so, therefore it is her fault.
No, actually someone else put up a FB page for him and spelled his name wrong, coincidentally the same way AP spelled it wrong when the story broke, and Palin's name was spelled wrong too. Not very Tea Party.
"Jered Laughner" vs. his real name.
          1.a Sarah Palin targeted Rep. Giffords with rifle-scope cross-hairs, prompting Loughner to shoot her
The "target" marks pre-date Palin by quite a few years and the marks on her page are digital map markers, not a depiction of rifle scopes. Even on the scopes in movies, the cross hairs stay in the circle. Compass points do not. If the critics were right about the Tea Party, even a nut like this would notice that. Not very Tea Party.
2. Rush Limbaugh and others like him influenced Loughner
Well, maybe if he took time out of his busy days of listening to Metal and burning weed*, maybe. But none of his classmates noticed that. They did notice his appreciation of Johnny Darkly Not very Tea Party.
Johnny Darkly
3. His YouTube page featured alternate currency advocacy. Well, yes it did. I have not been able to confirm the report that he wanted to use weed as the alternate currency. Mother Jones says he wanted to use gold or silver and the Guardian infers that he did. Could be Tea Party-ish.
G. Gordon Liddy, gold celebrity.
4. He was a huge Right Winger! Must be Tea Party
Not according to anybody talking about knowing him. They said he was a disruptive leftwing pothead. Not very Tea Party.
Willie Nelson Tea Party?
5. He hated the government and burned flags! Both true, according to his writings and videos. Still, not very Tea Party. Seeking responsible government and disliking the past regime enough to vote them out is a far cry from shooting congresspersons. Burning flags is so not Tea Party.
Kramer is so not Tea Party
6. He said don't trust the government. True, just like a lot of people from '9/11 trufers' to Al Sharpton. The Tea Party has no monopoly on that one.
7. He tried to join the military. True, but he failed his drug screening. Not very Tea Party.
The Vietnam War was a long time ago.
10. He had a creepy skull thingie in the back yard in a tent True, still not very Tea Party.
I think Loughner's was different
11. He shot a Left-Winger, he must be Tea Party
Gun rights, concealed carry advocate Giffords was not "Leftwing" at all. She was Bluedog.
By gabriellegiffords
12. He wore a hoodie!
Pair a red bandanna with that and you have a left-leaning anarchist. Not very Tea Party.
Revisiting that "don't trust the government" point, it would be wise to put that Pima County Sheriff Dupnik at the top of the list. Yes, the one who was blaming Palin and others for what may be more his fault than anybody else's. Loughner did not need Obamacare, he need to get arrested for the threats he was spewing for ages before this incident and then he would have been denied a handgun. If he would have been medically deemed unbalanced, same thing. 
The sheriff has been editorializing and politicizing the event since he took the podium to report on the incident. His blaming of radio personalities and bloggers is a pre-emptive strike because Mr. Dupnik knows this tragedy lays at his feet and his office. Six people died on his watch and he could have prevented it. He needs to step up and start apologizing to the families of the victims instead of spinning this event to serve his own political agenda.
Jared Loughner, pronounced by the Sheriff as Lock-ner, saying it was the Polish pronunciation. Of course he meant Scott or Irish but that isnâ(TM)t the point. The point is he and his office have had previous contact with the alleged assailant in the past and that is how he knows how to pronounce the name.
Jared Loughner has been making death threats by phone to many people in Pima County including staff of Pima Community College, radio personalities and local bloggers. When Pima County Sheriffâ(TM)s Office was informed, his deputies assured the victims that he was being well managed by the mental health system. It was also suggested that further pressing of charges would be unnecessary and probably cause more problems than it solved as Jared Loughner has a family member that works for Pima County. Amy Loughner is a Natural Resource specialist for the Pima County Parks and Recreation. My sympathies and my heart goes out to her and the rest of Mr. Loughnerâ(TM)s family. This tragedy must be tearing them up inside wondering if they had done the right things in trying to manage Jaredâ(TM)s obvious mental instability.
Every victim of his threats previously must also be wondering if this tragedy could have been prevented if they had been more aggressive in pursuing charges against Mr. Loughner. Perhaps with a felony conviction he would never have been able to lawfully by the Glock 9mm Model 19 that he used to strike down the lives of six people and decimate 14 more.
*I am all for legalizing MJ, but very much against substance abuse. Use does not equal abuse.

This is supposed to be Tea Party Evidence?

Related 1/15/2011James Fuller's death threats create an atmosphere of fear.


Look at all those flags not burning!
Come on Guardian, you can do better than this. Maybe you can't.
Jared Lee Loughner: erratic, disturbed and prone to rightwing rants | World news | The Guardian:
"The tone of Loughner's rantings is almost exclusively conservative and anti-government, with echoes of the populist campaigning of the Tea Party movement. 'Don't trust the government listener!' he said in one video, accusing Washington of mind control and brainwashing."
Nothing this nut put out online has anything to do with Tea Party anything. Maybe that is why the Guardian uses their clever by half wording "with echoes of." Translation: He did not say anything supporting the Tea Party but the writer wishes he did.

They even mention his flag burning video (embedded below), mentioned in a couple of John's posts on this blog too. Funny, I don't remember flag burning being a big part of the Tea Party movement. Actually, I quite distinctly remember every single person I have met from that movement abhorring it!

They mention his desire for a new US currency too.  He wants marijuana to be the new currency, not gold or silver!

Everything else the Guardian mentions goes right along with Anarchists who throw things through store and bank windows.

The Euroleft is getting in step with our Left for a campaign of lies.






Sadly, the Left-leaning Mother Jones has some of the best information out there.  This nut actually asked this question in a public forum, 'What is government if words have no meaning?' and he expected an answer.  It sounds like a question from a stupid creative writing class.

This guy is as "Tea Party" as the Times Square Bomber, so maybe Bloomberg can give us some of his brilliance on this tragic event.

Don't Jump to Conclusions, Unless it Suits the Bomb-Thrower Left

Nothing to see here.
Byron York - Journalists urged caution after Ft. Hood, now race to blame Palin after Arizona shootings
On November 5, 2009, Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at a troop readiness center in Ft. Hood, Texas, killing 13 people.  Within hours of the killings, the world knew that Hasan reportedly shouted "Allahu Akbar!" before he began shooting, visited websites associated with Islamist violence, wrote Internet postings justifying Muslim suicide bombings, considered U.S. forces his enemy, opposed American involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan as wars on Islam, and told a neighbor shortly before the shootings that he was going "to do good work for God."  There was ample evidence, in other words, that the Ft. Hood attack was an act of Islamist violence.

Nevertheless, public officials, journalists, and commentators were quick to caution that the public should not "jump to conclusions" about Hasan's motive.  CNN, in particular, became a forum for repeated warnings that the subject should be discussed with particular care.

"The important thing is for everyone not to jump to conclusions," said retired Gen. Wesley Clark on CNN the night of the shootings.

"We cannot jump to conclusions," said CNN's Jane Velez-Mitchell that same evening. "We have to make sure that we do not jump to any conclusions whatsoever."

"I'm on Pentagon chat room," said former CIA operative Robert Baer on CNN, also the night of the shooting.  "Right now, there's messages going back and forth, saying do not jump to the conclusion this had anything to do with Islam."

The next day, President Obama underscored the rapidly-forming conventional wisdom when he told the country, "I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts."  In the days that followed, CNN jouralists and guests repeatedly echoed the president's remarks.

"We can't jump to conclusions," Army Gen. George Casey said on CNN November 8.  The next day, political analyst Mark Halperin urged a "transparent" investigation into the shootings "so the American people don't jump to conclusions."  And when Republican Rep. Pete Hoekstra, then the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, suggested that the Ft. Hood attack was terrorism, CNN's John Roberts was quick to intervene.  "Now, President Obama has asked people to be very cautious here and to not jump to conclusions," Roberts said to Hoekstra.  "By saying that you believe this is an act of terror, are you jumping to a conclusion?"
Jared Lee Loughner
I like Mein Kampf, just like Jared
Read the rest.  He has great examples of how the Jared Lee Loughner case is "different".  I like his take, but I see many similarities.  The Left grabbed the microphone and started shouting their agenda before Rep. Giffords was in the operating theater.  They did the same thing with Hasan.  In the case of Hasan what was different was the Left running to his defense, with excuses as outlandish as second-hand pre-traumatic stress disorder.  In Loughner's case, the Tea Party became the term of choice, even though Loughner's flag burning video was one of the first things found on the internet with his name on it.  The MSM does not care about facts, they care about the narrative, as long as it passes their "truthieness" test.  What is really funny is the Leftists who still deny that Mussolini and Hitler were Socialists, just like Jared.
I like Das Kapital, just like Jared

Jared Lee Loughner: Where Romantic Myths of the Left Wither in light of Facts

Jared Lee Loughner: Where Romantic Myths of the Left Wither in light of Facts
Before any of the victims of Jared Lee Loughner's shooting rampage were diagnosed and stabilized, the knee-jerk American Left was spinning stories from myths.  Here are just a few that appeared on Twitter right away, with sources from all over.
Myths: Other than Tea Party nuts, Military Veterans are the only people in our society crazy enough to shoot people in the streets, so he must be a Veteran or Tea Party or both:
 Tammy Bruce 
 by JohnTagliaferro
Disgusting, now State Sen Lopez brings up & essentially blames Tea Party while giving an update on Giffords condition, unbelievable.
Sen. Lopez also began the rumor that Loughner was an Afghanistan war veteran.
Facts: Loughner was rejected by the Army, never served one day in the military, and was not associated with any Tea Party group anywhere.  The Tea Party is not big on flag burning, like Loughner.
Myth: The Left does not engage in conspiracies, only the Right does.
 Natalie Duval 
 by JohnTagliaferro
BREAKING: DEMOCRATS PLOTTED TO BLAME TEA PARTY FOR SLAUGHTER!  
Direct link to Politico story.

Myth: Only Right Wingers are violent, this nut must be a right-winger.
Truth: Lee Harvey Oswald, James Jay Lee

Myth: The Government says he is in a radical group, so he must be.
Fact: The current Homeland Security Leftist echo chamber floated a memo that Loughner was associated with "The American Renaissance".  The group begs to differ.

Myth: Sarah Palin had candidate Giffords in the scope of a rifle and called for her assasination.
Fact: Here is the map with surveyor's crosses on congressional districts that her fellow Republicans could win.  No rifle scope images, nothing like that.
More myth: Peace and tranquility loving Democrats would never do that.
Another fact:

Palin is a politician. Dems had target map too.





Myth: Only Sarah Palin said anything to incite violence against Rep. Giffords
Fact: Kos, advocated it, because Giffords is not Leftist enough for him and his followers

Jared Lee Loughner described Liberal & Daily Kos "Targeted" Gabrielle Giffords >  < >  <

Too bad Kos purged that one. Here is a screen capture of how it appeared on 6 JAN 11:
More Leftist Palin Derangement Syndrome here.

Obama advocated bringing guns to knife fights quite some time ago.  More examples here.  Bill Maher wants his Black Presidents to have a pistol in their belt, under their t-shirt.

Myth: Loughner was motovated by Palin.
Fact: Palin was not "on the scene" as they say in 2007, when Loughner began planning this attack.

Myth straight from his popular tweet:

The reason why Jared Lee Loughner is not being labeled a terrorist: Do you know any Muslims named Jared?

Fact: Only a deranged Leftist would think that the term "terrorist" applies exclusively to Muslims.  Plenty of us are calling this shooter a terrorist:

Terrorism - (n) the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, esp. for political purposes. Jared Lee Loughner = Terrorist


Myth: Jared Lee Loughner targeted a Leftist because he is Far Right

Are they seriously trying to call Jared Lee Loughner a "leftist"? He fucking killed a "LEFTIST". That kind of makes him FAAAR RIGHT dont it?

Facts: Just because Giffords is a Jewish convert and a Democrat does not make her a Manhattan-style Liberal-Leftist.  She is a 2nd Amendment and Concealed Carry advocate.  She wants the border with Mexico secured.  She is a former Republican and a proud Blue Dog Democrat.  She has more in common with Rep. Heath Shuler than with Sen. Barney Frank.

Also on the list of Leftist rantings around the internet, but not worthy of much comment:
A nut like him got a gun, so we need to ban guns. Ha! Nice try.

A discussion on the radio this AM noted that the type of magazine he used was banned under one of the Clinton-era gun grab acts.  Some of us call them "normal capacity" magazines, but the industry term is "extended capacity".  That ban resulted in a new market for smaller guns that are easier to conceal, also known as "Clinton Specials."

The anti-concealed carry crowd keeps "warning" us that when laws like the Arizona concealed carry policy are enacted the streets will become "old west shooting galleries."  In spite of early reports that other people returned fire on Jared Lee Loughner, those accounts seem to have evaporated.  In Arizona, if one is 'allowed' to own a handgun, they are 'allowed' to carry it concealed most anyplace besides a doctor's office.  Laughner appears to have been the only one with a gun, in this case.
