“This is Missouri,” he told investigators, according to law enforcement. “I understand if we were somewhere else like New York or California, people would freak out.”

Yes, those pantywaists in CA and NY everyone’s been telling you about are certainly scared little wimps, snowflakes that melt st the site of a gun. No you, you’re just out shopping at WalMart with an AR. Totally normal in Missouri. Not provocative at all.

Except they did panic and become horrified.

Except you should not have been surprised, because your family warned you what would happen. So your excuse wasn’t bought my authorities.

But you’re young, dumb, and full of @#$%& and can’t be told what to to. A man’s man. Yeah, and with a felony charge to back it up, now.

In case it’s not obvious, causing havoc is essentially yelling fire! in a theater, not protected by law.

He will beat the rap and become a hero to gunners.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Ah, but he was just a law-abiding citizen exercising his 2nd amendment rights. That’s what conservatives say when assault rifle-toting folks show up at various public events.

Make up your mind, Missouri.

I was raised in MO and currently live about 3 miles from it. (Sigh. KS is not much of an improvement, but we are turning things around with recent elections.) This guy is a tool. I know the other day I said he'd probably walk, but looking at the police comments from this incident, and MO conservatives notwithstanding, he will pay whatever penalty they toss at him. This was a completely irresponsible act of sheer terrorism. I think people are changing when it comes to this stuff. Maybe only as of last weekend, but even Rs are tired of being scared shiteless while their kids are in school or they're out running errands, etc.

This is from the not too distant past. Compare and contrast.

He was to demonstrating his right to bear arms -- and he wanted you to know it.

Video of the unidentified man toting an assault rifle outside President Obama's speech to veterans Monday was aired all over the country, causing a buzz about weapons popping up -- legally -- around recent presidential events.

...Video from KNXV shows the man standing with other protesters, with the rifle slung over his right shoulder, a handgun in a holster on his left hip, and a bullet clip in his back pocket.

The same protester told KNXV separately, "I'm exercising my rights as an American in Arizona."

The protester was among a dozen other demonstrators carrying unconcealed guns outside the Obama event.

....Arizona law has nothing in the books regulating assault rifles, and only requires permits for carrying concealed weapons. So despite the man's proximity to the president, there were no charges or arrests to be made, according to Phoenix police.

Carry your assault rifle, a handgun, and an extra clip or two around in a protest crowd against that black guy inside the building who claims to be your president; no sweat, no foul. Heck, join the party!

Carry your assault rifle into Walmart in another open-carry state and go shopping, and you’re charged with making terroristic threats.

Make up your mind, Missouri - do you want these nutjobs law-abiding citizen patriots to be able to open carry or not?

The circumstances of the guy parading around in WalMart was nothing like the Obama event, and his skin color is irrelevant to the issue of them carrying weapons.

Meaning, they may have hated/protested Obama because he's black, and might speculate hatred pushed them to carry guns (but not want to shoot ??) But that's a stretch. We know how Arizona laws are and how local police described the scene because it's there in the CNN piece. We know the president was never in danger, let alone harassed, because it's explained in the CNN piece. Specifically, we know the armed protesters never got near the president because they would not have been able to do so regardless of any state law, because it's described in the CNN piece.
