Man with semi-automatic weapon protests on Sand Hill Around Town, posted by Editor, The Almanac Online, on Feb 9, 2012 at 6:12 pm
Update: There's a man with a gun over there, and what he wants ain't exactly clear. "There" is in the 2800 block of Sand Hill Road at an entrance to an office complex near Interstate 280 in Menlo Park. The man with the gun said he is Los Angeles resident Michael Zeleny, who showed up there on Thursday (Feb. 9).

sunshine1 - many times on this board we have talked about 'laws' If we do not like them, then we the citizens need to push our elected officials to get them changed. In this case, the law is clear and therefore the police not only did the right thing, they did it in a professional manner.
In the same respect - this man said he was a victim of rape. Do I think all rapist should be allowed to walk around with no recourse just because time has passed - no. But our laws talk to that too..
Frankly if a rape did occur, and I have no reason to believe he would lie about that, I would want that dealt with before someone 'peacefully' albeit oddly protesting.

Yes, sunshine California has an open carry law. If it isn't concealed and it's unloaded it's legal. Frankly, I think you have more to worry about from the drunk drivers leaving the Rosewood than you do this guy.
I'm still waiting for you to come up with a law he's broken. Can't can you?

Thanks to Dave Boyce for this fair and balanced report.
In regard of my demands, the hotel complex at which I am holding my protest also houses New Enterprise Associates (NEA), self-described in their court filings in connection with this matter as our world's wealthiest and most important venture capital firm, with over $11 billion under management.
