Via Uncle and Sailor Curt comes the story of some bartender in Richmond, VA, who seems unhappy with a recent law change which allows those carrying concealed weapons into establishments which serve alcohol. He wrote about it on his blog Jack Goes Forth.
He uses lots of profanity and over-the-top stereotypes to describe gun owners as uneducated idiots. Murdoc can’t quite figure out the logic to that one, but we see it a lot so it must be SOP. Anyway, he includes a couple of gems:
I’m honestly thinking about getting a concealed weapons permit with my spotless record and then going to these people’s places of work and seeing how they feel about someone that they have never met, walking into their front door with a handgun.
Well, we wouldn’t even know, would we? That’s the point. And if we did, I doubt we’d mind. I know I wouldn’t. Not exactly sure what the point is here.
Hide behind your 2nd amendment you uneducated [X]. When the Brits come back and try to re-colonize us, then you can tell me that I was wrong and that we need to bear arms. Until then…You’re a [X] idiot.
Ah, the old “hiding behind the Constitution” card. Just a bunch of dumb people who think that simply because something was important enough to include in the document that established our government, it actually matters. If the cops try to ticket a driver for going 20 in a 35, is the driver “hiding behind the posted speed limit” if he thinks it’s wrong?
In closing…. If you attempt to walk into my bar with a concealed weapon and for whatever reason you didn’t conceal it enough…. You won’t have enough time to draw your piece cowboy. Your face will already be on the pavement. I promise.
Hmmm. Threat of violence. In his Twitter feed he stated that he intended to “maim” if he attacked and that
I stand by my guns in bars comments. If you have a problem with it then bring your concealed gun with you. You’ll need it.
He stood by those comments so strongly that he then TOOK DOWN THE THREAT. Gone. No longer on the blog. No mention about it or why he did it. (Plus he doesn’t allow comments on his blog in the first place, probably because other people are so insecure.)
But here’s a screenshot from the Bing cache:
What a classy act.
