Second Amendment Auditor Jailed on Hearsay Evidence, Claim of “Obstruction”

Richard Hubbard from Youtube channel

Arizona -(Ammoland.com)- Second Amendment Activist Richard Hubbard has been arrested by Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, Police.  The arrest occurred on 8 April 2019 at Neinhuis Park. The police were called about an armed man in the Park. It is NOT illegal to carry a pistol in Neinhuis Park. Hubbard reportedly was carrying an AR15 type pistol, which may look like a rifle to people who are not knowledgeable about firearms.  It was slung over his back. It is currently illegal to carry a rifle openly in the park, but will become legal as of 1 November, 2019.

From tulsaworld.com:

Broken Arrow police are defending the arrest of a Second Amendment activist in the face of accusations that officers overreacted and violated the man’s rights.

Police arrested Richard Hubbard, 37, at Neinhuis Park off Lynn Lane Road near 51st Street on Monday evening, according to a news release. The department reportedly had received several calls about an armed person, later identified as Hubbard, in the park.

Officers eventually used a pepperball launcher on Hubbard after he reportedly ignored commands from officers. Officers then arrested him on complaints of felony pointing of a firearm and obstruction. He was later posted a $15,500 bond and was released.

Constitutional Activist Richard Hubbard is known online as Perfect Picture. He has a Youtube channel with over 7,600 subscribers and dozens of videos.  Hubbard does what is known as First and Second Amendment Auditor.  He is openly carries firearms in places where it is legal to do so, and records his activities. The purpose of the action is to establish the right to bear arms and to record it. The presumption is that rights which are not exercised are degraded and lost over time.



A few weeks ago a First Amendment Auditor who routinely provokes authorities in Los Angeles, Zhoie Perez, was shot by a security guard as she pushed the envelope of what is lawful.  The Californian security guard has been arrested on suspicion of assault.

The police that arrested Richard Hubbard did not video his arrest. They did not wear body cameras. They claim he did not follow commands fast enough. He is said to have been recording on his phone.

Hubbard is an experienced Second Amendment auditor who has complied with police demands in the past.  He is reported to have been arrested and released several times in the past, without charges. He has been careful to comply with the law in past videos.

Here is the aftermath of an arrest the police did not complete in Tulsa, Oklahoma on 23 November, 2018.

It is unclear what charges will be made against Richard. Assault (for allegedly pointing a gun at someone) and obstruction have been mentioned. He was released on a $15,000 bond. Part of the bond is that he turn over all his guns to the police until the court proceedings are completed.

No video of the arrest in Broken Arrow has been made available to the public. So far, there have been no claims by police that they observed Richard pointing a gun at anyone. Given Hubbard's non-violent actions in the past, and the questionable nature of the charges, the requirement to turn over all his privately owned firearms shows the fragility of Second Amendment rights in some areas.

The reaction to Hubbard's legal actions are found by many to justify his activity.

    One thing this conversation did bring forth,,, a large number of people that consider themselves intellectually and morally superior to other people! Legal is legal, period. Those of you with this unfounded fear of firearms should go to the range with someone and just watch. Not a single gun jumped off the table and shot somebody! When you get through disarming all the Good Guys, just remember, the Bad Folks will still have guns! When you are raised to fear everything you are not familiar with, and you don’t grow a spine, well it’s no wonder that so many people… Read more »

    If you truly were military, then you would know that the trigger group in an M4 and an M16 are wider and longer than in an AR15. To convert an AR15 to the full auto or 3 shot burst trigger groups requires removal of metal from the lower receiver to make it fit. Additionally, you would be doing pushups from the first time you asid assault rifle until you either collapsed or your arms resembled a gorilla’s. You were not military.

    A lot of people here carry concealed, fewer carry open, but it’s purple going blue here, so hassles are more likely to happen in the future. That aside, I haven’t ever felt uncomfortable about seeing a hip holster. I get looks routinely while people try to figure out if I’m carrying, they’re looking in the wrong place. Evenso, nobody’s gotten in my face about it, or anybody else’s that I’ve seen. Looks like the cops that arrested him have some evidenciary problems that will come out in the trial.

    I used to open carry in the McLean Giant all the time. The manager never had a problem and we became pretty good friends before he retired. I’d get some looks but no one ever said anything. One time at a restaurant in McLean a waiter did come over to our table and inquire “what model Glock is that?”. Another time a group of women asked the manager of a restaurant why a group of us were armed. His response was classic; “Madam they are here for your protection”. The manager later told us he felt as though his was… Read more »

My main reason for having a firearm is that I often travel the Interstate System between here and Denver, as well as some of the roads and streets of Denver and its surrounding area. Unfortunately Denver does have a major crime problem, mainly crimes of opportunity some carjacking’s and armed robberies.

    Why do people opposed to constitutional guaranteed rights to bear arms always care so much about the size of the person in question penis size? I guess these people have such a big mouth that they plan on filling it with something equally big. Maybe they think if they taunt him about his penis size, will get him to drop his pants and show them. Then the suckfest begins! That’s the only reason I can think of why anyone would make a penis size assumption related to firearms. In that case it would be safe to assume that gun protesting… Read more »

    This is kinda his point about laws degrading over time . He has a constitutional right to carry in this country however people have gotten so used to infringements that stuff like this happens . Should I call the cops on you for excersing your 1a rights ? Absolutely not then what makes the 2a different ? The fact of the matter is the laws that restrict carrying of any weapon are unconstitutional in fact all weapons laws are unconstitutional.

The issue is not clearing him of any erroneous charges, real or made up and not clearing him after finding our that he was absolutely legal. He should not have made him post bail or confiscate his firearms or return them after clearing him.

    Allow me to point out a couple of things. The Oklahoma Self-Defense Act allows those with a carry permit to carry handguns concealed or openly. It defines a handgun/pistol as a firearm which has a barrel of less than 16 inches. It also mandates that open carry of a handgun requires the use of a holster. The story indicates that this guy did not have his “handgun” in a holster. That alone violates the Act. Barrel length is not mentioned so who knows.

    To start with you a fool, the U.S. Supreme Court already said the laws restricting gun rights, like this state law is constitutional. So you don’t have a clue what you talking about.

So it sounds like he already broke the law, then you must follow what the officers say, even if disagree with them.

    If this was in the State of Georgia the cop’s would shoot you down no questions asked, literally. Well first of all open carry is against the law in our state, Georgia Without A Concealed Weapons Permit. Which to me is unconstitutional when our state constitution of 1777 reads, it’s our God given right’s to keep and bear arms. Doesn’t say anything about buying a permit in our state constitution. I had to get that off my mind just in case you decide to come visit communist Georgia. To the matter in Oklahoma, first of all idk they’re laws and… Read more »

    Some folks are perfectly happy making themselves a constitutional martyr in states like CA. That exactly what you’re going to be. They’re going to arrest you, seize and grind up all your guns, then throw you in jail. The SCOTUS isn’t likely to take up your case.

At least according to those who became the framers of our Constitution. Whether you believe in a “higher power” or not is irrelevant. If this concept of a higher power giving us “inalienable” rights were not true, then, we, in this nation, have made the concept of “inalienable” rights as if they were. The rights and freedoms you have now are a derivative… Read more »

    Km, you can’t prevent others from being hoplophobes. We can only educate those willing to learn. These hoplophobes would probably also quiver in fear if you looked at them. Why fear someone not doing anything wrong? Would you be more afraid of a plainclothes officer printing or a private citizen OC? Or as I had seen, an officer directing pedestrian traffic while his retention strap was unsnapped, or a black man OC walking down a city sidewalk just going about his business? One needs to assess the risks in one’s day-to-day life. Law-abiding citizens are not going to induce fear… Read more »

Like the person above me stated “I don’t know what their intentions are I don’t know if they’re intent on causing harm”.

    A felony should not be a sentence for life, that discourages redemption.
    Cops can not be trusted because they have a two tier society mentality. Their training reinforces this, i.e. shoot till the threat stops moving. As if it’s reasonable to keep your hands up in the air while being shot and yelled at. It’s physically impossible, therefore they shoot till you’re dead.
    Plus, shooting at someone that doesn’t obey when they can’t hear you? That’s free license to kill deaf people, people with ear buds in, those working near loud machinery, it’s endless

    Hi Joe,
    You are misinformed. Police only are allowed to shoot when a threat to them or others exist and until the threat no longer exist. They can’t shoot you for not obeying a command and there is no “free license to kill” the non complying without a danger to them selves or others.

    See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fleeing_felon_rule While it has largely fallen out of practice, it was legal for most of US history up to the 1990s in some states for LE or citizen to shoot at a fleeing felon. But who decides if fleeing subject is a felon? The cop or armed citizen, of course. The standard is the same for arrest: probable cause. I think most would agree, cops can pretty much arrest anyone for any reason, your only recourse is a trial (there’s no such thing as suing for wrongful arrest).

The Constitution ONCE was so clear on the RIGHT to keep and bear that if you were free to walk around outside you could keep and bear…

    Why does everyone continue to ignore the elephant in the room. The 2nd amendment does not say take my weapon because I was convicted of a crime or crimes and paid my debt to society. Give me back my god given right. My right that shall not be infringed upon or no one should be allowed to walk around with a gun. My kids have a right to equall protection and the right to life , hello , so the fuck do I and every other convicted felon.

    The convicted felon gave up his rights, and there are many, when they became convicted felons.

    Yet liberals still want felons to vote. For Democrats. But why? Liberals say these people can no longer be trusted…

    I wonder if being a criminal and being a Democrat are somehow related?

    Actually, the second amendment was written in this context: “The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” – Thomas Jefferson, Commonplace Book (quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria), 1774-1776 Also, Sam Adams can be quoted as saying, “The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent… Read more »

    Your forefathers would have all been convicted felons for standing their ground. Let’s consider that. Also, most “felonies” aren’t handed out for actual crimes, but for arbitrary “laws” or policy infractions. Drugs are a big one they like to use. With what the “conservative party” has become, I’d be willing to bet those old men that fought for the system we had in place 240 years ago would consider themselves constitutionalists or libertarians more than republican by any current logic.

    “Drugs are a big one they like to use.”

    More people are shot by felons with guns over drugs than for any other reason for people shooting other people.
    Of course it’s a “big one”

    I think you’re confusing breaking the “law” with committing a crime. Huge difference!

    It’s not a god given right. It’s a constitutionally given right, and just as it was given in amendment form, it can be repealed in amendment form.

    You, sir need to study history. Our rights are inherent. The constitution delineates the resposibilities of government. The bill of rights specifically restricts the government from assuming powers not given to it by the constitution. One of the fears of the founders was the bill of rights would result in the government taking liberties that weren’t listed. In these united States, it is we the people that have the power and are to be served by our elected government. We are not slaves that choose our masters.

    You have gotten it backwards. You need to reread the declaration. The rights are given to us by our creator… I don’t understand how you can misinterpret that

    You are exactly right. Our rights are endowed upon us by our creator. They were not graciously afforded go us by any man or document. But, those are princied ideals…and i do agree with. But the practical reality is that we only keep what we have by kicking ass if necessary. Ergo, might is right. Thus the need from th 2A. I hope we can get to the revolution part of this ordeal while we still have a generation of men who know what a nutsack is for

    There is a Supreme Court case saying that if were a gun regestration convicted people are NOT required to comply because it would be self incriminating. You can petition to the state government to get your rights back also.

    The first a. Gave us freedom of religion, press and now ? The 24 hour news cycle controlled by 3 corporations.
    The public radio is so anti second a. The major networks don’t follow up on issues. If walking through a public park brings the attention maybe that is necessary.

    Furthermore, many churches trade their testimony for the money that comes with a 501c3 tax exempt status that the very cover letter tells them they do not need. Government has corrupted churches.

    Let’s wait a while until the police get 100% militarization and get to use small “tactical nukes.” Then let’s hear all the anti-gun folks complain. 666 to you too

    Well Dave, when is the “right time and place” to exercise Rights (capital “R”)? In a field with no one around? Is that where we practice Free Speech or any other Right? If you truly believe in our inherent Rights I think, right about now, you should be saying to yourself “I said the wrong thing. You should be able to practice your Rights ANYTIME, ANYWHERE and people should get used to it”.

    How about it Dave? Suppose people reported you because they were afraid of you speaking openly?………….
