Was the Obvious tag pinned down in the crossfire?

Eh, sh*t happens with new laws; nobody fired and nobody was hurt.  However, this I enjoy: "When police arrived, they arrested 62-year-old Ronald Williams for disorderly conduct related to pulling a loaded weapon inside a place of business. Police took Williams' gun and remanded him to the Lowndes County Jail."

The first day... the very first day of "Guns Everywhere" and this spaz gets downgraded to "Guns Nowhere."  Stupid, indeed.

Now imagine this confrontation in a bar, after a few rounds.  What could possibly go wrong?
 
2014-07-02 01:27:25 PM  
Saying "Show me you permit" and pulling your gun to enforce it is way beyond stupid. Guy must have thought he was Wyatt Earp.

Maybe it's the same thing that happens to people who become cops. The thought of the power they're holding goes to their heads and makes them get authoritarian and aggressive.
 
2014-07-02 01:28:06 PM  
Wait, not even police are allowed to ask you for your id or permit?

What kind of sense does that make? Jesus.

Another person in the bar would draw his weapon and say, "Now, fellas, let's just us settle down, y'hear?" And then another guy, the one in the back corner, would draw his weapon and point it at that guy and say, "Now, looky here, pardner, you don't need to be getting into this." And then that shifty-looking fellow at the jukebox would stand up and pull his gun from his boot and point at at that guy, and he'd be all like, "Well, why'd you need to go and draw your gun, then?" And then everybody else would draw their guns, and everybody would be all like, "You holster!" "No, YOU holster." And then a square-jawed fellow in the balcony would poke a rifle down at everybody and say "STAND DOWN, YOU WILL STAND DOWN NOW." And the people on the ground would be all like, "I WILL NOT STAND DOWN." And they'd go back and forth like that for a while: STAND DOWN -- I WILL NOT STAND DOWN, and then the fast-thinking bartender would be all like, "Whoa, everybody, let's have a round on the house!" And boom, just like that, it's all resolved. And everybody gets a free drink. So it's all good.

Wow.

I am at a loss for words right now.  Why...WHY would you purposely put yourself into a situation like that?  If you want to be a LEO, then go be a LEO.  This is real life, not cops and robbers.  There are consequences to your idiotic actions.

While this story is lacking some details, I can see why the other guy would be tempted to draw down on the random dude (non-LEO) demanding to see his papers.  Not saying that I agree...but I get it.

The guy demanding to see papers needs to have his guns taken away, stripped naked, and be beaten with eels.  F*cking idiots making gun owners looks like a bunch of wackos.

These people are idiots. I've lived in Louisiana where we have an open carry law and in almost 20 years, I've never seen any stupid incidents like this. You give idiots an inch, they'll take a mile, I guess.

The eels are to blame for the damage done to Wombat's hovercraft.

Maybe gun-owners universally like eels?

Too many yankees and homos in Atlanta.  The REAL classy place in Georgia is Cobb County aka God's Country.  There's a great little place you've got to check out there.  I believe it's called Applebee's.  They make the best Xtreme Taco Tower with Melty Cheese this side of the Mississippi.

Is this the thread where we talk about "eel milking?"

Or am I misinterpreting the use of the word "beat?"
 
2014-07-02 02:27:10 PM  
Just for the sake of argument, let's assume that the average gun owner is as smart as the average American.

Why would anyone think it's a good idea to let them carry a loaded weapon in public? I wouldn't trust most people with anything more dangerous than a NERF gun.

I bet the guy who was being asked for the permit was black or Hispanic. After all, guns are for white Americans only.

This is f*cking hilarious. We have universal concealed carry in Arizona, so no permits needed. I pack a little varmint pistol, a .22LR special, in my backpack when I hike in wolf country, just in case. Seems like people have been feeding them and they're getting a little too brave around humans. You're not allowed to kill them unless they attack, and I'm okay with that. I'm not out looking for a fight with nature or man.

Universal carry is not going to be enough for the nuts, though. And there are gun nuts here. They're certifiably crazy. (Remember the Arizona chemtrails story?) There are people here who literally believe that Obama and NATO are going to take over the United States and everybody must be armed. I'm still waiting for some small-dicked republican in the AZ legislature to introduce mandatory carry. I don't wanna have to buy a new holster, and I'm not going to keep a gun in my waistband so I can become a Fark story. If it ever happens, I think I'll just move the 15 miles from here and live off the grid in a trailer in New Mexico. :(

Would have been my first guess; I can't find any info on the victim but the guy who drew would appear to be black.
