The Robinsons never got their wings, or a refund. The daughter told officers the "manager had an attitude," and said her mother had brought a gun because she feared a physical confrontation. She took it out and held it at her hip but never pointed it, the daughter said.

It's called brandishing, you idiot. You don't draw unless you're immediately going to use the weapon to try to protect yourself or another from death or serious injury.

Don't fear for your life? Don't plan to shoot? Don't draw.

Depending on the situation, even lawful open carry can become brandishing without touching the weapon.  Purposefully drawing attention to it, uttering threats, etc.  Don't play the intimidation game with a gun - all it does it get you in jail or in the ground.

You Americans are nuts.

I have nothing against guns.

But the concept that a gun would come into play over an order of forgotten chicken wings is basically insanity.

Don't buy the news hype.  Yes, we have a problem with guns in this country.  No, this shiat isn't even remotely common.  Which is why you immediately see the news media slobber over the novelty when it does.  Killings over fights, robberies, bad blood, that kind of shiat - yep - and that's no good at all.  But brandishing/killing over bad fast food orders etc. are severe outliers.  Precisely why you see such a "WTF?" reaction from everyone.  Even in America, this kind of shiat is "WTF are you even doing??" territory.

OK, fair enough. I apologize for stereotyping.

Large rifles and shotguns are rarely concealable, if at all. When carrying one in a place where having one on your person wouldn't be out of place, don't draw any attention to it.

What are the odds that this person actually has a permit to carry, do you suppose?

It was easy to find the Robinsons' home, since the order had recently been delivered there

I'd say, "zero".

These are the dumbest of the dumbest, and it's a good thing that our laws aren't written with these lowest common denominators in mind.

When I lived in Holland I was amazed at the punctuality of the bus and train system there. Bus and tram traffic had full right of way at all times, if you were hit by one it was your fault not the driver's, no matter whether you were a pedestrian, cyclist or car driver, no exceptions.
When I marvelled aloud about this infront of a Dutch guy he explained. During the German occupation of the Netherlands from 1940 to 1944, the Gestapo shot any train or bus driver who was late, they were considered part of the resistance for delaying the transport system. Even today Dutch bus drivers run to time like their lives depend on it.

I would also like to add step number one: Don't intentionally go out of your way to get in confrontations. It's pretty easy to think it through. It would go kind of like this.

"Hmmm, need my car keys, put on my coat, put shoes on, oh yeah, better bring my gun. Wait, why am I bringing my gun? Because I plan to get in a potentially violent confrontation? fark it, maybe I'll just stay here."

I used to think carrying a gun would be cool. I mean when I was like 20. I'm 45 now, have never carried a gun, and have NEVER been in a situation where pulling out a gun would have been a good thing. I've been in plenty of situations where pulling out a gun would have been a terrible thing.

Wanting to, or actually carrying a gun affects a persons psychology. It's like a security blanket. People think it protects them, but then does that make them more likely to get in confrontations because of the security blanket effect? Frankly, it's way to farking easy for Joe Schmoe to get a permit to carry a gun. There should be hundreds of hours of training, batteries of psychological tests, etc...

Don't need to be a farmer to know that..... But a cook would know it only takes 20 mins to deep fry and season the wings , 20 mins to prep and 10 mins to shop for the wings.
They'll even taste better than the schlop they serve at the local junk food shoppe in town.
That is if you know what a stove or a store looks like.

That's basically rule zero for self-defense. Learn to recognize when a situation might be turning dangerous, and GTFO. Be polite and respectful to people. Never escalate.
 
2019-03-10 04:28:51 AM  
It's unfortunate that some kind of maturity/responsible behavior test wasn't part of owning a firearm. This behavior is certainly the exception, the potential for escalation is there. I'm a gun owner and a lot of my friends are. It seems that nearly all of those who open-carry or concealed-carry are the ones that shouldn't. They always seem to be the ones itching to to shoot somebody.
