A rally held by Bloomberg's Mayors Against Illegal Guns stirred up at least one crazed gun nut enough to get himself arrested in Concord, New Hampshire yesterday. Daniel Musso literally got in the face of speaker John Mantin, and later found himself on the wrong side of the law, apparently his second amendment rights superceding the first amendment. At one point after mentioning his deceased daugher, a victim of shooting violence, Mantin asked him to show a little respect, to which Russo responded, “if you had your speech in your mind, you wouldn’t have to read all this propaganda shit in front of you.”

New Hampshire has come under increased scrutiny from Bloomberg's group for the pussilanimous vote against expanded background checks by Senator Kelly Ayotte.

CONCORD, N.H. —Police used an electronic stun gun to subdue a Brentwood man Tuesday night at a gun control rally in Concord.

Police use an electronic stun gun to subdue a Brentwood man at a gun control rally in Concord.

A News 9 camera was on the scene when officers took 52-year-old Daniel Musso to the ground shortly after he interrupted a speech in favor of expanded background checks for people purchasing guns. Reporter Adam Sexton watched the altercation unfold.

Sexton said the rally attracted a passionate pro-Second Amendment crowd, including Musso, who now faces multiple charges, including simple assault of a police officer. The confrontation started at the podium when Musso interrupted a speech by John Cantin of Manchester.

Cantin, who was wounded and lost his daughter in a 2009 shooting, was speaking in favor of expanded background checks on gun sales.
