You Got a Problem With Me Openly Carrying My Gun? Make My Day, Punk.

Wanna fight back against the open carry gun nuts in Wisconsin? "Scream real loud."-Pee Wee Herman

So who are these squealing Second Amendment supporters?

Are they a frustrated group of ex-body builders who found that toned abs or massive chests still didn’t impressed the public enough to garner the respect they deserved?

Are they an impotent crowd of social rejects hoping no one will notice their inadequacies by clinging to their guns like junkies hoping someone will see how cool they were with their holstered jewelry.

Or are they a small faction of insecure paranoid zealots hopelessly looking for a little unearned respect by total strangers using fear and intimidation by wearing a gun in public. After all, who’s going to question or confront someone who appears unafraid to use a loaded gun?

It could be any of the above mentioned reasons and more. These are posers and gun addicts disguised as defenders of the Second Amendment, who conveniently ignore the included word “regulated” as if it were an ink blot spilled by a careless Thomas Jefferson.

Since only a few over compensating losers will want to wear their gun collections in public, the majority of people in the state and country will obviously be afraid to confront these nut jobs and ask them to take their insecurities someplace else.

I used to call the Republicans the party of chaos. I might go back to that after watching AG J.B. Van Hollen’s irresponsible act of issuing a memo that could only stir the pot of crazies into action. I guess he just didn’t think it would be a big deal. What an innocent and naive act from a full grown adult and top cop in the state. “Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen said his memo was simply intended to "clarify" the law, and he does not believe more people will start openly carrying guns because of it.”-WISN.Com

Fox11 has the report:

WTMJ-TV covered this story: Nik Clark is a member of the National Rifle Association and opencarry.org. He owns eight guns, and took one of them to a New Berlin grocery store and gas station, as a way to put open carry to the test.

How did WTMJ know Nik was about to test his constitutional right to open carry? He called the media outlets for a sensationalized scoop about his daring social experiment. Sadly, the media giant in Milwaukee gave Nik Clark all the attention this publicity slut was looking for. Watch this massive muscle bound knuckleheaded act surprised that no one seemed to care whether he was packin’ heat or not. Would you have said something?

On the sane side of the open carry argument, WISN.com had this:

State Rep. Leon Young, a former Milwaukee police officer who represents part of Milwaukee's north side, said he's working on fast track legislation to clear up confusion with Wisconsin's gun law. "If you're walking down the street with a gun in your hand and people can see it or you've got one in your holster here and people can see it, it's going to create a disturbance," Young said.

Milwaukee's police chief said he'll go on telling his officers to take down anyone with a firearm despite Van Hollen's finding that people can carry guns openly if they do it peacefully. Chief Ed Flynn said officers can't assume people are carrying guns legally in a city that has seen nearly 200 homicides in the past two years. Flynn said it's irresponsible to send a message that if someone carries a weapon openly, no one can bother them.

Shorewood Police Chief David Banaszynski, the leader of the state chief's association, said "Now, with open carry, which is legal, there may be no training. I could hand you my handgun, you could walk down the street carrying it with no training whatsoever. To me, there is a lot more danger now with people thinking, 'I have the right to carry it so I'm going to carry it, and not have the training."

Guns are still prohibited in schools and any private property owner, including businesses, can ban firearms.

God these people won't be happy until were all afraid to go out of our homes. But we can fight back. Anytime you see anyone carrying a gun in public and causing a public disturbance...Scream real loud!


  1. Go to OpenCarry.org to learn more about Operation CarryLand and the online petition to repeal the onerous school zone and car carry bans. Got to the petition directly at http://www.petitiononline.com/wi1848oc/petition.html.

  2. I certainly wouldn't expect this reaction in public, and it's cause for arrest, or at least a citation.

    If I want to keep from being a victim, let me defend myself against violent crimes. Nobody asks to be a victim of a violent attack.

  3. If I feel threatened by some jackass with a gun, my complaining and "screaming" won't get me arrested. The person with the gun will be ticketed for causing a public disturbance, maybe even reckless endangerment.

    If anything, whatever purchase I was going to make, would be a no sale. Store owners will love that.

    Your response gives me the impression you're already a "victim" of a no concealed carry law, at the same time imagining yourself the victim of an attack. Gun nut freeloaders would prefer not demanding a safer community from their locally elected officials, and instead, pick up a gun as a less troublesome solution. Everybody else can fess for themselves.

    If you're so worried about being the victim of a violent attack, MOVE.
