Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Today, TheBlaze posted the story of a Army Master Sgt. C.J. Grisham, who was arrested after being accused of “rudely displaying” his gun. Grisham was on a hike with his son in a rural are of Temple, Texas. Grisham, who has a concealed carry permit, was carrying an AR-15 and a .45 caliber pistol when a police officer approached him and ended up placing him under arrest in front of his son. Grisham called into radio today and opened up to Glenn about the incident.

Watch a video of the confrontation below:

Grisham described the incident on YouTube:

“At about the 5 mile mark of our hike, a voice behind us asked us to stop and the officer motioned for us to approach him. He got out of his car and met us a few feet later. He asked us what we were doing and I explained that we were hiking for my son’s merit badge. He then asked me what I’m doing with the rifle, to which I responded in a calm manner, “Does it matter, officer? Am I breaking the law?” “>At about the 5 mile mark of our hike, a voice behind us asked us to stop and the officer motioned for us to approach him. He got out of his car and met us a few feet later.
