Unhinged Micro-Phallus Sufferer of the Day

We should be under no illusion for what leads to this kind of behavior.

Cindy Yorgason was in line at the J.C. Penney in Riverdale on Wednesday when she looked up and saw a shopper with "a large gun."

Yorgason said the rifle was slung across the back of the man in front of her. When she looked closer, she saw that he also had extra ammunition clips and a sidearm in a holster on his right hip. [...]

On Thursday, 22-year-old Joseph Kelley identified himself as the man in Yorgason’s pictures. Kelley described himself as a firm believer in Second Amendment rights and said he decided to bring the guns to the store to demonstrate that they are not dangerous in the hands of law-abiding citizens. [...]

Kelley added that he carries weapons to protect children and other people from "criminals, cartels, drug lords" and other "evil men."

Kelley was carrying an AR-15 and a loaded Glock pistol. Because you never know when you may have to confront a cartel, a drug lord, or an unspecified evildoer at your local J.C. Penny department store.

It's only a matter of time until one of these over-compensating, Second Amendment exhibitionists is the victim of a shooting perpetrated by another equally unhinged person who was also just "exercising his rights." And for sanity's sake, let's hope it doesn't take place in a state with a "stand-your-ground" law.

    What be this talisman called a firearm that it magically confer upon its possessor manhood, wisdom and moral superiority?

      It’s a shame I can only vote up once on this comment.

    Everyone is a law-abiding citizen until they are not.

    What happens when a law abiding, gun carrying, righteous, RWNJ comes round the corner as a car backfires, misreads the gun carrying wanker’s mobile for a handgun and starts blazing away at him? Kid’s dead, Police come in thinking it’s another mall shooting, etc, etc, etc
    What a self righteous prick!!

    “…demonstrate that they are not dangerous in the hands of law-abiding citizens. […]”

    What a moronic thing to say. What does being law-abiding have to do with knowing what to do with the weapon you’re carrying around? Being law-abiding magically makes you a bad-ass sharpshooter who will hit your target every time?

    If you are so stunningly stupid as to say or believe that not having a police record = expert with any gun you are holding, you assuredly are too incompetent to be trusted with a weapon since you clearly don’t know jack shit about gun safety.

    Now just imagine what would have happened if that was a person of color, or perhaps a person originally from the middle east or if he was wearing a turban.

      That’s easy…the black guy would have been denied access to the store and the police would be called. SWAT would have come out for the middle east guy. Both would have been arrested if they had even the slighest irregularity in their gun permits/car registration/etc.
      Black guy would have made local news as “potential gun crime foiled!” and musilm guy would make national news as “potential terrorist plot foiled!”
      Poor Mr. Kelley, I feel sorry for people that scared of the outside world.

    Is that an Ed Hardy shirt? Well I’ll be darned.
