The best part of the whole thing was when the freedom fighter in my pic showed exactly how well he handled the weapon slung across his back by inadvertently dragging the barrel of that nice, shiny gun down the concrete wall to his right. He was clearly a well-oiled fighting machine high on situational awareness.

He was definitely pro gun. There were a bunch of gun demonstrators there that day with their AKs, ARs, etc. strapped to their backs, plus there was at least one guy in full-on Revolutionary-Era garb. It was utterly ridiculous, and I say that as someone whose gun-control stance is only a couple of steps more restrictive than, "if they're 18 and want one, they can have it."

I noticed the backpack, too. My first thought was that Diadora was the brand all the soccer players liked when I was in high school, and that guy didn't strike me as the soccer type.

ftfy.

I'd actually say that he's doing quite a lot; demonstrating first-hand the inalienable rights that most citizens have forgotten or don't realize they have.

I know the laws, but the laws don't justify his behavior.

The only thing he's doing, along with his buddies at the "demonstration," is perpetuating tired stereotypes about Southern gun owners. The whole thing was a needless display of saber rattling, and these types of displays do far more harm to gun rights advocacy than good.

Some of the gun-nuts do various open-carry stunts in Virginia. They'll get a whole group to walk into a Starbucks or whatever, with a pistol in a hostler. Basically they were just hoping someone would freak out, cops would come try to arrest them, and they could make a big speech about how open carry was legal etc etc. Eventually the cops caught on and stores started writing open carry bans into their rules. I don't think anybody changes their minds on anything, but now more people know you're allowed to open carry, for whatever that's worth.



It is weird though. I'm not terrified of guns or anything, but seeing some dude with a Glock on his hip at the store (who isn't a cop) is a little unsettling. I know he's not going to flip out and shoot anybody, but it's just so out of the ordinary and unnecessary.

Went out to buy a 16 port switch and at the microcenter parking lot I saw an asian woman in her late 30's with silver and pink hair!

 

She looked angry so I just kept driving.

It's funny how we all know there are people walking around with concealed weapons but seeing one is so unsettling, or at least, I'll admit to finding it a bit unsettling.

Often I see students on my campus with their pants pulled down so low that they have to hike them up periodically in order to be able to continue walking. I think they look about as ridiculous as a person can look, but that's not the thing I can't believe I saw. What I saw just the other day was a student do the reverse: he looked down and decided he wasn't showing enough of his Fruit of the Looms, so he pulled his pants down a good couple of inches, right there in public.

It is very easy to get used to.

I just saw a guy with a spiderweb tattooed on his face.

Face tats are quite common in England in certain lowlife circles..
post #505 of 547
I think this guy was among them. He was a character for sure, by the look of the rest of him.
post #506 of 547
I should also mention the spiderweb tattoo occupied his entire face.

facial tattoos are pretty much deciding that you are accepting a certain place in society. Unless you are a successful artist or employed in a field where your clients don't see you or are of the same social group, it's a very limiting move. ..and it's never anything good looking; it always makes me wonder what they were thinking (or not). I bet you one day he looked into the mirror and said "you know what my face is missing? A big dumb ass spider web! If I get that tattooed right on there, everything will be perfect. I will gain the admiration of all who see me."

A face or neck tattoo basically says "unemployable".

Maybe he was a tattoo artist.

There's a guy that I know from around the neighborhood for years, who has a spiderweb tattoo that covers his face and entire shaved head. I'm pretty sure that he's an artist, either that or a serial killer. He's a pretty nice guy and seems like a good dad.
