By far the most viewed, upvoted and commented on answer I have ever given at Quora was a question about concealed-carry vs. open carry. I mentioned it here a little while ago.
Since the three mass shootings last week I’ve been answering a slew of gun control questions. Someone I respect over on Facebook today posted about this yo-yo: “You’re presuming guilt of a crime he hasn’t committed. Want attention, surely. Up to no good? Debatable.”
Here we’re going to part company. Somebody shows up at a public venue carrying a long gun who is not obviously law enforcement, I’m going to assume the worst and try to put them down. I’m glad the firefighter didn’t dump a mag into this idiot, but had he I would have voted to acquit. The “debate” can occur in the courtroom. If he was wrong, only ONE person would have been shot.
I’m glad the CCW carrier didn’t do a mag-dump into the idiot, but if he had I would vote to acquit.
It may not be illegal to walk around in public tacticooled out, but it’s STUPID, and stupid should hurt.
