Felony Convictions for Two Idiots That Walked into Police Station Heavily Armed

Felony Convictions for Two Idiots That Walked into Police Station Heavily Armed

The left loves to make the case that guns should be banned to keep them out of the hands of the wrong people. Brandon Vreeland and James Baker are just the latest two idiots hurting the reputation of responsible gun owners nationwide.

Earlier in February, Vreeland and Baker decided to go to the Dearborn Police Department to file a complaint after being investigated by police for suspicious activity. They entered the police station carrying rifles, sidearms and clad in head/face wraps and body armor. Needless to say, the stationed officers did not take kindly to this:

Just because something is legal doesn't necessarily make it moral or even a good idea. In this case, nothing Vreeland or Baker did was legal, moral or even a good idea. Both men now face heavy penalties for their decision to recklessly endanger their lives and the officers they encountered.

From the Dearborn Patch:

Baker, of Leonard, Michigan, was charged with two counts of carrying a concealed weapon and one count of brandishing firearms in public. Vreeland was charged with carrying a concealed weapon, assaulting/resisting/obstructing a police officer and disturbing the peace.

In a Monday press conference, Dearborn police said Vreeland, of Jackson, was convicted of carrying a concealed weapon, felony resisting and opposing an officer, and disturbing the peace. Baker was convicted of carrying a concealed weapon.

A few days after the incident, Dearborn Police Chief Ronald Haddad condemned the actions of Vreeland and Jackson. “I find this behavior totally unacceptable and irresponsible,” he said in a statement. “This is not a 2nd Amendment issue for me. We had members of the public in our lobby that fled in fear for their safety as these men entered our building.”

Other reports indicate that Baker wasn't exactly the best person to advocate gun rights, let alone carry weapons around and terrorizing the public. In an earlier 2015 incident, he had his Concealed Pistol License revoked for breach of peace

Vreeland isn't much better. Here's footage of Dearborn Police stopping them prior to their walk-in stunt to investigate them for suspicious activity (called in by a concerned citizen):

Vreeland and Baker's conduct was immature and utterly uncalled for. The raw anger they displayed towards police officers simply doing their jobs is exactly the kind of emotional detachment that demonstrates a person's inability to carry responsibly. Vreeland and Baker don't seem to realize that at the end of the day, few groups care more about defending Second Amendment rights than law enforcement personnel.

Even Michigan Open Carry Inc., a gun-rights advocacy group, denounced their actions:

“Let us be clear, Michigan Open Carry Inc. in no way supports the actions of these individuals. It is our belief that their actions were reckless and primarily designed to draw attention and a response.”
— Tom Lambert, President of MOC, Inc.

Vreeland and Baker will be sentenced on August 18. As convicted felons, they will no longer be allowed to carry or own firearms for at least three years under Michigan law.

Stay alert. Stay alive.
