Master Sergeant C.J. Grisham, prominent military blogger and founder of A Soldier’s Perspective, is currently embroiled in a battle to defend his second amendment rights. On March 16, 2013, C.J. was arrested in his hometown of Temple, Texas, for “rudely displaying” a hunting rifle while on a hike with his 15-year-old son. C.J., who is stationed at nearby Fort Hood, holds a permit for the weapon he was openly carrying that day, which is legal in the right-to-carry state of Texas as long as it does not cause alarm. Since the story broke, many Americans have been stunned by the video footage of the arrest, which was filmed by both C.J. and his son.
In order to defend his second amendment rights, C.J. launched an online fundraiser in late March 2013, which has already amassed more than $31,000 in donations. “No one should have to fear being illegally disarmed without warrant, especially someone who has never committed a crime in his life,” C.J. writes. “There is an overt attempt to disarm Americans, and especially veterans, in this country.” If you would like to help C.J. fight for his rights, you can make a donation here. http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/2nd…
