    Yet another instance of The Constitution being used as toilet paper.

    However, excessive speed will get you noticed.

    Stupid reporters. There are no 70mph areas for trucks in Michigan. It's 65 in that area.

    Meanwhile, it's a Saturday night in Portland, Oregon along Marine drive where the rice burners equipped with obnoxious dynamic mufflers are drag racing with impunity. Speeds are easily exceeding 100 mph.

    I'll find out in a bit if the police are interested in shutting it down.

    Talked to some spectators and was told that sometimes the police themselves engage in exhibition of speed, and have displayed a show of force minus anyone being pulled over or attempting to stop this event.

    When asked if there has ever been any fatalities, one guy showed me a video of a motorcyclist performing a high speed wheelie only to die rear ending a car. This fatality occurred only yards away from the guy I spoke with.

    They could always take a page out of the City of Rialto,California playbook-confiscate the offending vehicles and CRUSH THEM!

    As I stated, police are taking no action in halting these drag races. Oregon's governor, Portland's mayor, Multnomah county's DA are all rabid leftists, so there's that.

    Idiot.
    All he needed was a permit from his home state to carry concealed and it wouldn’t have been a problem in Michigan.

    Obviously he’s only allowed to open carry in Missouri..
