12 gun shop protesters on trial in Philadelphia

The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA - A trial is under way for 12 activists arrested in demonstrations at a Philadelphia gun store.

The defendants say Colosimo's Gun Center's owner won't sign a pledge to follow ethical gun-sale rules.

The defendants are part of an interfaith group concerned about gun violence and include several ministers.

The group, called Heeding God's Call, has continued to hold demonstrations outside the shop since the arrests in January.

Defendant Sam Caldwell, a 61-year-old grandfather from Media, says he sees evidence of racism in the nation's alleged tolerance of gun violence because many victims are black.

Prosecutors argue that the defendants are guilty of obstruction and disorderly conduct regardless of their motivation.

No mosin

taser is a one and done toy unless you can get close enough to drive stun someone. Pepper spray is a crowd pleaser and lasts for much longer.
