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.

“‘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 the website for the defense fund.

“‘In this day and age, [people] are alarmed when they see someone with what you have,” one of the officers tells Grisham in the video. ‘They don’t care what the law is.‘”
