I thought you weren't allowed to even draw your weapon in public...
doing crap like that can lead to loss of license or worse.
doesnt seem all that smart to me. I wish some sort of punishment would be put on him.
It was in Arizona where they have open carry, so I dunno .
Still stupid though.
he was dry firing at a walmart?
Even in AZ where open carry is legal, drawing could be considered brandishing. Someone just has to call 911 and say there is a crazy person waving a gun around.
i think all stores should have a block of ballistic gelatin in the corner somewhere for gun nuts just like that....so when they come in and pull their guns to talk about their "carry loads", rather than blabber about it, fire that sucker into some fuggin jello and lets see what she can do!!! YEE-HAW!!!
wouldnt ever hold up, they would get a warrant for the tapes, and they would see that even though cowboy was a bit crazy, he probably didnt intimidate anyone.
They wouldn't need a warrant if it was the store owner/manager/security that called.
He probably made a few liberals shit their pants though
Hell, that would have made me a little cautious.
I think its great.
and who would charge him with what without any evidence of wrongdoing?
hmm, i was just thinking about moving to AZ...
They would charge him with brandishing a firearm...
I'm not saying it would stick, but it would be a pain in everyones' ass that could be avoided by simply not whipping out your piece everywhere you go.
Thought Wal-marts had a corporate policy of no firearms.
The only place I've seen a sign is a Whole Foods. It's big on the door about being illegal to carry into the store.
Fucking hippy faggots.
Apparently not, over on SigForum in their CCW forum it's a right of passage to go directly to Walmart and buy ammo with your CCW the first day you get it .
I was told that Walmart left it to manager discression. I've carried open in a few Walmarts and no one has said anything. (Arizona of course)
In most states just pulling a weapon out like he did is brandishing. There doesn't have to be any threat. In some states just lifting up a shirt to display a concealed gun in a holster is brandishing. That guy was a total fucktard.
As for Walmart it depends on the state's laws regarding signs. Here in nevada a store must have signs displayed at all exits. If it's not posted, then it's not illegal to carry in. The management though can ask you to leave the premises if they see it and are so inclined. It's private property and they have the ability to kick you out, but it's not illegal.The same goes for open carry. If it's private property, they can request you leave or leave the gun outside in your car. If you decide to argue and refuse to leave, then you are then trespassing.
So yeah, I guess it would be considered brandishing.
