"Disorderly Conduct" strikes again.

Men with rifles charged in 'open carry' demonstration at Starbucks

I know there are gun owners who believe it is wrong to carry a gun to make a political point -- even if it is legal. Then there are guys like the above who get arrested because they won't stay in the closet. The San Antonio Police are justifying it by claiming "disorderly conduct".

However, San Antonio police Chief William McManus explained that the gun holder can still be charged with disorderly conduct if anyone, at any point, feels threatened.

So, if anyone feels threatened by a gay couple will the SAPD arrest them? How about a woman who "feel threatened" by anti-abortion protesters? Not likely in either case. This really just looks like like the police are using the "disorderly conduct" loophole to discourage people they disapprove of.
