    AURORA | The report sounded ominous when Aurora police responded Tuesday morning, July 15, after hearing a man with a AK47 and a banana clip was seen in a Home Depot Store.

    Police surrounded the store at 3475 N. Salida St., just before 9 a.m. Employees and customers were brought out of the store as officers with rifles searched the interior for the reported gunman.

    K-9 units were also called in the search the store.

    Then, an employee came forward and told police that a man matching the description of the gunman had been inside the store earlier.

    The employee said the man was carrying a nail gun and was looking for parts. He had left before police arrived.

    :rofl::rofl::ugh::rofl:

    Ugh.
     
  4. The other day I saw someone driving down the road with a military-style AK47 assault weapon and high capacity ammunition clips on the roof of their car. I called the police. They shut down the freeway and locked down all schools within 10 miles. It turns out it was a canoe on the car. :hsugh:

    Society is doomed, how can you not tell the difference between a nail gun and an AK-47? Oh wait, I bet it was a soccer mom.

    OMG, I was at Lowe's earlier, and they were selling these things off the shelves! I was afraid, but luckily I got out of there before the firestorm started.

    Texas is not an open carry state, so Id say no. In Nevada though, its legal as long as it is clearly visible from 3 sides, so that would be legal, though a lot of cities have ordinances against open carry.

    You can't OC a handgun in Texas but rifles are a different story. I'm fairly sure there are no laws regarding the OC of a rifle but that guy would be best finding out for himself. :dunno:

    you can strap a loaded rifle to your back in VA* :bowdown:

    you are limited to 10 rounds if you don't have a CHP. If you have a CHP, you can :unlimitedcarry:

    Rifles ARE REQUIRED to be open carried. No concealment allowed.

    Rifles may be open carried as long as they are not carried "in a manner to encite panic" .... which pretty much means you're fucked when someone calls the cops on you.

    Her vanilla latte must have got in the way of her vision.

    I say we ban all nail guns, just in case this happens again.
