RE: entering a govt building masked

IF they took the mask off they would be told to put it back on....They get in under the "freespeech" clause.

why are you so constantly wrong?

Is it because you erroneously believe that whatever you want things to be is what they are? Do you realize if you enter the wrong place masked, someone there can shoot and kill you?! In fact, you can get 10 years in prison in Canada for it. You don't even know the laws where you live!!!

Here's part of the DC code. Your funny friends there in Canada would have been arrested in DC for doing it.

DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA (Washington, D.C.)
§ 22-3312.03. Wearing hoods or masks.
(a) No person or persons over 16 years of age, while wearing any mask, hood, or device whereby any portion of the face is hidden, concealed, or covered as to conceal the identity of the wearer, shall:
(1) Enter upon, be, or appear upon any lane, walk, alley, street, road highway, or other public way in the District of Columbia;
(2) Enter upon, be, or appear upon or within the public property of the District of Columbia; or
(3) Hold any manner of meeting or demonstration.

Police are very prone to shoot a masked person quicker than one who isn't, even in Canada where they shot one wearing Guy Fawkes mask.

Just as Washington DC isn't Maryland....it also isn't Canada


NOW all you have to prove is that they were wearing a mask to "conceal their identity" and NOT to express they opinion on the right to wear a mask.

They are carrying their proper government issued identification and provide it when requested....haven't harmed anyone, haven't made a "timing device".....what's the problem?

You can't wear a mask in DC but you can be two faced? How does that work?

Canadian law is stricter than DC

just in case you want to start wearing masks into public and govt buildings there.

RE; Your Guy Fawkes mask story
Police arrive at the location and they come into contact with a second individual who is unrelated to the original complaint,” she said. “He is aggressive. He does not follow police commands and he is shot. He is transported to hospital but he does not survive.”

"second individual" IS wearing Guy Fawkes mask...shot because holding knife and not folowing orders.....mask is NOT a factor.

He was shot because he was flashing a knife

A primer on Canadian law for you

The bill creates a new Criminal Code offence that makes it illegal to wear a mask or otherwise conceal your identity during a riot or unlawful assembly. Exceptions can be made if someone can prove they have a "lawful excuse" for covering their face such as religious or medical reasons.

Mask?

Even you

should be able to distinquish between someone dressed for cold weather outdoors and someone wearing a mask indoors. Surely you can't be THAT confused. Can you?
