But his constitutional right

Maaaaybe we can begin to see the problem now?

No, of course not, that’s just silly.

Guy walks into a Walmart carrying an assault rifle and wearing body armor. April Fool! In August! 6 days after another guy murdered 20 people in a Walmart with an assault rifle while in body armor. It was a test. That’s all, just a test. What’s everybody so riled up about? He was testing Walmart’s loyalty to the sacred right to carry assault rifles everywhere.

“I wanted to know if that Walmart honoured the second amendment,” the 20-year-old told police after his arrest.

Prosecutors have charged him with making a terrorist threat.

If found guilty, the charge could result in a four-year prison sentence and a fine of $10,000 (£8,300), Greene County prosecutor Dan Patterson said in a statement.

I bet he scared the bejeezus out of everybody in that store.

Prosecutor Dan Patterson said that while residents of Springfield, Missouri, were allowed to carry weapons, “that right does not allow an individual to act in a reckless and criminal manner endangering other citizens.”

Oh really. How, exactly, does that work? If they’re allowed to carry weapons, how are they supposed to know they can’t carry them into Walmart? If they are allowed to carry them into Walmart, how can all the people there avoid terror and panic and shock? What does it mean to be allowed to carry weapons but not allowed to carry weapons? What were you assholes expecting to happen?
