Happened in Roanoke va people flipped out over an umbrella they thought it was a guy with an ak LOL, but long story short like 100 swat members showed up they closed and evacuated the mall searched from 5pm till 3am and found nothing. The best part are the liberal comments at the bottom It made me laugh

Jackie Chan with an umbrella is no laughing matter.

Wonder how many people (CCW) actually had guns at the mall that day.

In VA, probably 50%.

In MD, it would be 1% and they would be in violation of the law.

At Valley View Mall? Last I heard they are a "Gun Free Zone" so none...

Actually the mall has a no ccw or oc policy that is why everyone that ccw's walks into the sears entrance it is the only store that does not have it posted. People really know how to over react. I try to avoid the mall because of their anti gun policy but it is a necessary evil come Christmas time.

A couple years ago we had a mall shooting in the metro area close to where I live. For a while thereafter, calls like the one you mentioned were not uncommon.

Some umbrellas do a lot more than just keep the rain off of you.

City pd probably wouldn't find the humor in taping an umbrella to my ak underfolder and walking downtown. I would just be like hell no this is the handle it came with no that is not a loaded mag it is a place to hang you hat or coat when you get inside. Sheesh haven't you ever seen an umbrella before

Those little no gun signs are too small for me to notice.

I'm sitting here trying to think of a innocuous collection of objects to tuck under one's arm along with an umbrella, like a long skinny flower box, and a book or something.

I carry an axe handle as a walking stick when my wife and I go for an evening stroll.

A poster mailing tube would be one.

I carry my M4gery in a huitar case (never in a mall though) and have never had a second look.

Have been asked if I play-I always say a little heavy metal.Discretion can be the better part of valor.

admit it you have this in the guitar case

Someone shouted "gun" in a crowded place????

Thank GOD he didn't make a "drawing motion," otherwise someone would handcuffed him... and then shoot him in the face.
