Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
..."Now, they're attracting attention across the Internet, with some gun rights advocates expressing outrage that the pair were held at gunpoint and handcuffed, while others voice frustration at what they consider a foolish and dangerous stunt.
The men, Charles Branstrom, 27, and Ross Bauman, 22, ultimately were released without tickets or charges.

..."Appleton Police are staying quiet on the subject, releasing only a prepared statement. The statement said the department responded to a call about the men and briefly detained them. After determining there was no harmful intent, they released them. They added that they consider this issue resolved."...
