A verbal spat outside a Westminster Walmart on Friday took an alarming turn when a man showed a holstered gun.

I don't know what the local laws are there.  I don't know if the guy had a legal concealed-carry permit.  But this is what I expect to see with increasing frequency as more people carry. 

I feel like there's a minority, but significant fraction, of people just hoping somebody starts something with them.  "Can't wait to see the look on their face when they see...this."  And a fraction of those will live their lives with a little more aggression, a little more swagger, not quite looking for trouble, but not quite being cool and level-headed, either.

Looks like the only thing that could stop a bad guy with a gun was a good guy without a gun.

If we're going to allow anecdotal evidence, I'd like to submit that I'm more level headed when I carry. Knowing that shiat like this will be admitted as evidence in court. I'm much more likely to try to talk out a problem as opposed to trying to end a confrontation with force.

It was later determined that he should not have had a gun because of his criminal past.

Criminals don't care about gun laws. Imagine that. I am shocked and dismayed.

Criminals in a country with extremely lax gun laws and easy access to guns, don't care about gun laws.


Criminals in India, with tough gun laws and little access to guns, make homemade guns without regard to laws or their own safety. Your point? People in China without access to guns who still want to hurt school kids do so with knives. Often. Since laws don't stop criminals, why would the availability or lack thereof of a certain weapon effect their behavior?

OK.  But I stand by my point that there is a sliver of carry-permit holders who kind of hope something will happen.


Really.  You stand by a "point" refuted in the very article you couldn't be bothered to read in its entirety before your knee-jerk post about what you think law-abiding citizens might be thinking?

And then when you go back and notice that this guy is a prohibited person illegally carrying a firearm, instead of simply correcting your error or slinking away quietly, you double down on your "point" that some law-abiding citizens have bad hopes and dreams?

Really?

You forming an opinion of what some legal CC holders will theoretically do, based on the behavior of a man who had no business carrying in the first place and never will have due to a past felony?

Wow, this is right around the corner from me.  I go to this Walmart all the time.

So a wackjob with an illegal gun still prompts you to attack legal gun owners?  Don't misunderstand people with concealed carry seeing a news report and say in this situation I would do x.  Part of the responsibility of carrying is making a clear headed decision under stress.  A good way to do that is to look at other situations while couch surfing to analyze the best choice.  In this situation, I probably would have just gone into the store and let security know there was a nut out front.

/yes, I do carry
//No, I hope I never need to use it

Can we say road rage or are we not allowed to bring up cars as they are all about legality and not weaponry.
