Oh No! A gun in the snack aisle

Run for your lives!

I wonder, how would this guy react if he was walking around Rehoboth Beach, DE and he saw two men or two women kissing.

He says we shouldn't do things that are "outrageous and irrational" and "anti-social" and proclaims that OC'ing in the snack aisle "smacks of paranoia."

Yes, the man who reacts with "OMG! He's got a GUN!!" upon seeing someone OC'ing but otherwise just shopping and minding their own business is the one calling the OC'er paranoid.  Ah, don't you just love projection?

Outrageous, irrational, anti-social, paranoid, all because a fellow citizen exercises his rights in a manner he finds disapproving.  His position sounds virtually indistinguishable from a typical anti-gunner complaining about Glocks, AK's, or evil hollowpoint bullets.

Sometimes we are our own worst enemies when it comes to gun owners like this.

Huh. I OC'd in the snack aisle just last night. And the cereal aisle, and the beer aisle, and the bacon aisle, and at the pharmacy. And once again, nothing happened except that I may have seen some lycra stretched to "outrageous and irrational" limits. Or maybe the guy that looked like he hadn't brushed his hair in a week was just "anti-social". And I managed to not freak out.

I'm jealous that you HAVE a beer aisle!

It almost makes up for the fact that the hard stuff is only sold in state-run stores.

Well, guns are supposed to be a deterent! If he didn't have anything to hide, then why did he get nervous?
