Here is my thread from last week; http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=1&f=5&t=1177480

And, apparently, now I know where the call for the police came from. A woman, who, herself, did not feel threatened, but instead listend to her deluded 11 year old daughters "fears," rather than explaining to her the rights our Great Nation was founded on.

Now that I have read "the rest of the story", I am actually kind of pissed that taxpayer dollars were wasted by this woman.

This is bullshit..
Wirtz: Guns and the public: Rights vs. responsibility
Posted: Sunday, May 1, 2011 7:00 am Christine Tudor didn’t realize that an innocent grocery shopping trip to the local Wal-Mart store would be so unsettling to her 11-year-old daughter.
<snip>
As the Midland pair walked into the store about 2 p.m. Easter Sunday, Tudor’s daughter pulled her mom’s arm and whispered, “That man has a gun.”
<snip>
“It affected my daughter greatly,” Tudor said. “She was afraid that he might start shooting right there in Wal-Mart.”
<snip>
First the boyfriend showed up and then three officers from the Midland Police Department. The boyfriend took the police to the man.
<snip>
That’s when Tudor learned that what the man was doing, even if eccentric, was legal.

Who knows what will happen once the sheeple see that a man can carry a gun legally.

No shit, maybe next time I will have to carry every pistol I have in a holster on my waist, and an AR slung over my shoulder. That way, when they say "several icky black scary guns" they MIGHT be somewhat near correct. LMFAO

I don't have a problem with you doing anything you did except for commenting on the article and calling a little kid an idiot.  Kids aren't idiots, they're just dealing with the early stages of neuroplasticity.  They're learning.   You just taught that kid that gun people are big meanies.   Good job.

On the open carry issue, I get what its about, but good luck to you all.  I'd rather start my draw at a time that the bad guy does not yet know I'm running heavy.

LOL @ the paper saying you were carrying 3 pistols.

You should tell the paper to correct it, that you were carrying 5.  Tell them there was one on each ankle too.

This.

3 guns in plain sight?  1 oneach hip and one in the back of the belt (if I read the snippet right), I have no problem with open carry but pahlheeze.  Real life trolling it would seem.

But hey, at least you got a couple of threads out of it, right?

....I’m a firm believer in the Second Amendment, but I think it is irresponsible for any gun owner to carry weapons in public situations not because you need to, but just because you can.....


Well I'm 100% certain that tomorrow I won't be the victim of a deadly assault, so since I don't need my weapon I just won't wear it.  Same could be said for not wearing your seatbelt, not locking your doors at night, not keeping fresh batteries in your carbon monoxide and smoke detectors.  The man must have his head up his ass.

I work hard to keep voters from electing anti gun reps. This kind of grandstanding, sheeple frightening shit doesn't help.

Fucking attention whores...how about garnering positive attention through deeds instead of "unique" behavior? Nah, that would require character...

Carry on.

So, do you mind clarifying for us exactly what and how you were carrying?

And people (including the OP) need to reread the article.  The part about him carrying 3 pistols is a quote from the lady.  Later, the police said it was 2 weapons.

I usually carry a gun to take out my garbage.

Come on guys. The guy was an attention whore/asshole and he got attention. I would question anyone carrying in Walmart also. Its not something you see everyday because most NORMAL people carry discretely concealed.

Maybe she saw the huge bulge in the front of his pants and thought it was a third gun?(and mistakenly said it was in the back)

OP-You do know that the rolled up socks go in the FRONT,right?



All kidding aside,I have no problem with it.The more people see it as commonplace and they have nothing to fear,the more it gets integrated into society and becomes normal.

But it's legal.

Yes. It may be legal but its in bad taste. Very bad taste.

And this is what idiots can't understand. Bringing attention to yourself NEVER, repeat, NEVER is a good thing.





I'm sure someone will be along shortly to say that I'm shitting on the Constitution or something, but know what? While you're getting arrested/harrassed/put on the radar I'll still have my gun and will have escaped the notice of other people, law enforcement and bad guys. Open carriers who do stupid shit like walk around in mall parking lots with AR15's,  proudly tote their Draco AK pistols and attention whores help the Brady campaign more than anything the anti's do.

Open carry is in bad taste unless you are in a hunting setting or similar situation. It smacks ATTENTION WHORE!!! I also can wear gold necklaces and short shorts legally, but do I?? The guy was an idiot.

I don't OC, I prefer CCW.

However, regardless of the manner of carry...

How do you know in advance where and when you might need to defend yourself?

I agree, there's really no reason for anyone to own a scary black gun. It doesn't matter if it's legal, it's just wrong.
