While protesting the Syrian intervention and open carrying three AR-15 rifles, members of the group noticed a law enforcement officer headed towards them.
“We saw the OC Sheriff car pull up so we all took out our camera-phones right away, anticipating trouble,” the video description reads. “This officer gets out of his car, waves to us, and walks right over.”
“Are you guys out here scaring the general public again?” Deputy Paul Buell jokes as he approaches the group. “This is what I call dedication to the cause, out here in the rain.”
Deputy Buell calmly and casually strikes up a conversation with the group, asking about their Ron Paul sign, Rand Paul’s shot at the presidency and even the NRA, immediately setting a positive tone for the encounter.
“I’m out to catch bad guys, not people that are exercising their constitutional rights,” Buell says as cars honk in support of the group.
Buell goes on to inform the group as to why he came out, explaining that some of the public is uneducated on the issue of guns and gun rights due to the media.
“You guys don’t intend on scaring anybody, you intend on educating people,” Buell says.
