Michael Strickland, the genius behind the Laughing at Liberals YouTube channel, was arrested over the weekend for pulling a gun to defend himself from a threatening mob chasing him down for filming at a Black Lives Matter protest.

Via The Gateway Pundit:
This weekend Michael was confronted by a gang of men and he pulled out his gun. The story made headlines and Michael was thrown in jail. Michael has a concealed carry permit in Oregon and can legally carry a weapon. He was being threatened and he pulled the gun on his would-be assailants.

Apparently, the state of Oregon issues concealed carry permits in Portland but you're not allowed to use your gun if you are being threatened with an a$$beating.

Here is one video of Michael pulling his gun on the mob.

** Victoria Taft has an amazing report on the incident including several video clips.

The court set bond for Michael at $250,000.

Please help free Michael Strickland.

You can help out by donating to his release at Oregon Firearms Educational Foundation, indicating "Michael Strickland Legal Fund" in the tribute box.

Strickland had every right to defend himself from these violent, menacing thugs.

Photography is not a crime and filming a protest should not get you threatened with violence, yet it's clear from the video multiple thugs in the crowd were hyper-aggressive and out for blood. One man even laid his hands on him as he's trying to leave, despite his having just pulled a gun, proving his violent intent.
