    To me it's a simple case of he went looking for trouble and he found it. He's obviously not very smart. What did he think would happen?

    He probably thought he was going to be some sort of social media star.

    People like him only make John Q Public think all "gun nuts" are crazy. And that's bad for all of us who actually aren't crazy.

    Do people feel the same way when they see a police officer with a vest on, a Glock on his hip and an AR in the car?

    If I see a 21 year old mall ninja donning body armor, and AR, and a battle load of magazines in the parking lot, I'm calling the police.

    So youíre going to call someone else with an AR and a battle load of magazines, so they can don body armor in the parking lot?

    Not to mention the fact that the defendant willingly accepted the plea deal. A guilty plea is exactly that, an acknowledgement that the defendant committed the criminal act(s) alleged in the information or indictment.

    Bozo chose the venue. Bozo chose the game to be played. Bozo wrote the script and acted it out. Now Bozo gets to pay the price.

    None of us carried an AR into a Walmart a few days after a massacre. This guy wasn't swatted, his problem was entirely self-inflicted.

    It was dumb and he's paying the price for his stupidity.

    Incidents like that one do us law-abiding gun owners no good.

    Who says it only happens to people who carry an AR into Walmart?

    Wow! It seems some sort of misdemeanor like "Disturbing the peace" would arguably be appropriate. If he had gone to court on the charges he may well have won. Regardless, it's a pretty sure bet that the general public will view it as a 2nd amendment issue.

    Once again (rotten) apples vs (good) oranges. Please don't equate criminals and/or nut jobs w/ the Police doing their job. Anyone who does really needs to have their meds adjusted.

    Both are wearing body armor and have rifle and pistol. Youíre the one making the comparison about anything more than equipment.

    The guy has a screw loose, makes sane gun owners look like kooks, and does not have the maturity and/or reason to own weapons.
    True, but also all of that is totally legal. By your line of reasoning, someone not staying in their lane of traffic, straying into another lane, is engaging in road rage and attempting to sidewwipe cars.

    His purpose was fully in line with his earlier internet video exploits, ranking up viewers.

    I can't quite figure out where you're coming from with that comment.

    The guy who's the topic of this thread tried to violate the unbreakable "law of inevitable consequences" and is getting to enjoy the results of his stupidity.

    Maybe you're trying to defend his actions?

    I dunno.
