I hope this is fake.
What a farkin' nutjob. They need to take away his gun and get his ass a desk job when he gets back home.
Dumbass.

Toting around a loaded gun is a crime in Canada*.

Don't like it, stay the f*ck home.

* with a few reasonable exceptions

I thank the Lord Jesus Christ they did not pull a weapon of some sort,

Thank goodness those people sensed life threatening danger and avoided this delusional gun toting yahoo.

Once again, it becomes nigh-impossible to tell the real American Christian Nutjobs from satirical ones.

/Note: This post is in reference to a very specific subset of Christians in America - the Nutjobs. This guy is a Nutjob. A Christian who says "Merry Christmas" to me instead of "Happy Holidays" is not a nutjob.

A man should be al-lowed to protect himself if the need arises. The need arose in a theatre in Aurora, Colo

Aaaand that's where I stopped reading.

I took the advice of one of the commenters on the site and googled Walt Wawra.

Yeah... this guy doesn't need to be carrying any kind of weapon around. They should tape thumbless mittens on him. The man's certifiable.

"Gentle-men, I have no need to talk with you, goodbye."

Oh, yes, this jerkoff should carry a gun at all times.

Unless this is fake, which would be fine with me.

I take it that "stampede" is slang for crack cocaine.

/Not really.

Y'know, I really thought, going in, that the headline was hyperbole. And I was wrong. Wow.
 
2012-08-07 08:11:31 PM
I speculate they did not have good intentions when they approached in such an aggressive, disrespectful and menacing manner. I thank the Lord Jesus Christ they did not pull a weapon of some sort, but rather concluded it was in their best interest to leave us alone.

Aw lawd, shut the fark up.

No thanks, after that whole Carreon wife debacle I've crazied myself I out. I can't do it anymore, for a little while at least.

He should take a trip to England.

State Trooper: Where are you boys from?
Clive Gollings: ...England.
State Trooper: I heard about that place: no guns.
Graeme Willy: Not many...
Clive Gollings: No, not really, just... farmers.
State Trooper: Well how are police supposed to shoot anybody?
Graeme Willy: [Uncomfortable] Well they don't...
Clive Gollings: They- they try not to...
 
2012-08-07 08:39:52 PM

I wouldn't go anywhere near Canada without guns... lots and lots of guns.

what a farking moron. OH MY GOD SOMEONE SAID SOMETHING TO YOU HOLY HELL IN A HANDBASKET WHY CAN'T I HAVE A GUN?!

Get bent and stay the fark out of my country.

You're in Calgary, somebody asks you if you're going to the Stampede and your first reaction is to wish you had a gun? What the frigging frack is wrong with some people?
 
2012-08-07 09:04:19 PM
Hey Kalamazoo... Feel safer knowing this guy is serving and protecting you?

A couple of guys, (possibly beer fuelled, but whatever officer who should have at some point had some training in dealing with humans other that with the gun he didn't have...) come up to you in a park in the city that hosts Stampede, during Stampede, and ask if you've been yet and you feel threatened by that?!?

Yup, I'd feel safer.

You're assuming that the guy even had any awareness of what was going on in the city he was visiting. Sounds like your stereotypical "horrible American tourist" to me.

It should come as no surprise to anyone who has been paying attention that the American conservative's mind views its world through the lens of omnipresent fear.

Here's the thing, farkstick.

Canada isn't your country. You don't like not being able to carry a handgun? Then don't come here.

Aggressively. They asked AGGRESSIVELY.

Dude's American, we don't know anything other than aggressive, it should have made him feel right at home.

I've been to Calgary... Other that to visit family, and proximity to Banff, Stampede is the only reason to go. And that he was there at the same time... maybe coincidence, but my gods, why would you go ANYWHERE without knowing at least a little of what might be happening there while you're there?

Wow, what a skittish, cowardly cop. And this guy is usually ARMED? Sounds like a typical dog-shooter.
 
2012-08-07 09:31:34 PM
would be absolutely AWESOME, if one of those "aggressive" dudes was recording their "attack."
 
2012-08-07 09:31:50 PM
As you all pass judgement and ignore the more salient points this police,an makes! Can any of you find any evidence that this 'kook' who has been a cop for 20 years has ever shot his gun?

Of course not.
 
2012-08-07 09:32:35 PM
I know two things about Calgary. The first is that their female hockey fans, or at least the ones who will drive/fly cross country to see the Stanley Cup Finals, all have massive fake boobs and a penchant for wearing small shirts, and the second is that the Stampede is a big gigantic deal.
 
2012-08-07 09:33:57 PM
Is this guy functionally retarded and a Police Officer?
 
2012-08-07 09:34:26 PM
I'm calling bullshiat. Too perfect with the Aurora stuff and wife protecting. You'll be getting this in an email from your weird uncle but with the words changed to "I'm a stampede ur girl with my negroe stick" and more judo chops that were learned in the Core.
 
2012-08-07 09:34:40 PM
was that just a really bad parody, or just idiocy in the opinion pages?
 
2012-08-07 09:36:10 PM
So, is there some sort of stampede in Calgary.
 
2012-08-07 09:36:10 PM

This About That: "Gentle-men, I have no need to talk with you, goodbye."

Oh, yes, this jerkoff should carry a gun at all times.

Unless this is fake, which would be fine with me.


I thought that they taught police officers the skills to talk to people in much more dangerous situations than this. If this did actually happen, it sounds like the men were probably trying to start a comversation that would lead to a hard luck story and some harmless panhandling.

I wonder how long until he shoots up a crowd?
 
2012-08-07 09:36:29 PM
The guy wrote the article not to convert anyone to his point of view, but rather to consolidate an already converted group of people. Preaching to the choir pulls everyone in church that much closer together.

tjfly: As you all pass judgement and ignore the more salient points this police,an makes! Can any of you find any evidence that this 'kook' who has been a cop for 20 years has ever shot his gun?

Of course not.


Using is irrelevant, that his first instinct, above all others, was 'wish I had my gun' is that of someone that should not be in a job that allows him to carry one.

rynthetyn: You're in Calgary, somebody asks you if you're going to the Stampede and your first reaction is to wish you had a gun? What the frigging frack is wrong with some people?


I think I've heard this "have you seen the stampede" thing before. It implies they're going to stampede on you. You know, because random dudes look for couples to beat on in parks in broad daylight. He made up the story to make a political point about Canada needing concealed carry.
 
2012-08-07 09:38:48 PM
what a load of bullshiat. stampede is in the spring, and it is in calgary.
 
2012-08-07 09:38:52 PM
I am a Poe's law victim here. I cannot tell if it real or satire. I am through the lookingglass.

Google Walt Wawra. Walt is either a real piece of work, or an alias for someone trying to make a certain group look even more foolish.
 
2012-08-07 09:42:58 PM
Did I miss something? I don't think it's all about guns.

Obviously two men in a Canadian park together were out to convert him to teh ghey in front of his wife, and he hadn't even registered as a candidate for election back home.

The Ugly American strikes again. You Yanks must be so proud of this douche. Sadly, he's not a minority.
 
2012-08-07 09:43:22 PM
People walk up to me almost daily in Chicago talking all kinds of crazy stuff. Never one did i think a gun is needed right now.

Been to Calgary during the stampede, sorta by accident, didn't attend. Canucks are outgoing and friendly and start conversations with strangers spontaneously, possibly due to the lack of guns and paucity of hard-core nutters. Go easy on the acronyms with them and talk slowly, and everything will be fine.
