Man Wearing Pro-Gun T-shirt Thrown Out of Voting Booth

Election officials ejected a Texas man from a voting booth because he was wearing a Second Amendment t-shirt.

Chris Driskill was prevented from voting at the Waller County Courthouse on Tuesday after officials claimed he was violating Texas Election Code section 85.036, which states that “a person may not electioneer for or against any candidate, measure, or political party” in or within 100 feet of a voting location.

“I heard a gentleman’s voice over my shoulder say ‘he can’t vote with that shirt on. You’ll have to either turn it inside out our you’ll have to leave,’” Driskill told KVUE.

The officials used the election law to throw Driskill out of the voting booth even though the shirt simply stated “Second Amendment – 1789 – America’s Original Homeland Security” on the front without any mention of a political candidate or proposition.

This is simply an attack on free speech and voting rights through the color of law as well as another example of the continued demonization of gun owners across America.

Last year in West Virginia, a 14-year-old was arrested for refusing to remove a Second Amendment t-shirt.

some people just take the rules a bit too far and also take their jobs a little too seriously.

Of course. Only someone with a few screws loose would wear a t-shirt like that to a voting booth. Must have been a teabagger.

Really, You need to be a little crazy to be an American that supports the second amendment of their Constitution? They weren't voting on the amendment. So what exactly was the problem?

If you mean patriotic American citizens that are rebelling against big government and crony capitalism , the industrial armament industry ,GMO modified foods . Are those the teabaggers you are talking about ? Maybe you should look in the mirror or at least open your eyes to who you are condemning .

I'm surprised that you would consider members of The Tea Party homosexuals but I did say on another thread that I think you protest too much when it comes to gay rights. I guess I was on to something.

Why would I have anything against something that has nothing to do with me?
