If you have to bring big, dangerous guns to a store to prove that “they are not dangerous in the hands of law abiding citizens,” then that pretty much proves that they are dangerous… in anyone’s hands.
<p>If you have to scare the pants off of shoppers with your intimidating AR-15, your Glock, and your abundance of ammo to prove they’re not scary, then they’re scary.</p><p>Just ask Cindy Yorgason, who was shopping at a Utah JC Penney store when she glanced up and saw Mr. 22-Year-Old Gun Guy standing in front of her schlepping a big ol’ rifle. Then she noticed his ammunition clips and another firearm in his holster. So what’s an unnerved woman to do? She grabbed a couple of photos and posted them on Facebook.</p><p>They went viral.</p><p>The Salt Lake City Tribune (link isn’t working, sorry) is reporting that a clerk refused him service and all nearby customers wanted to “get away” from him. Gee, can’t imagine why.</p><p>Gun Guy had been in the military, had a concealed-carry permit, and had checked with police dispatch prior to his little outing. They confirmed to him that he had the right to parade around with his oh-so-harmless portable arsenal, which he says he carries to protect his kids and everyone else from “criminals, cartels, drug lords” and other “evil men.”</p><p>As Olive Oyl would say, “What a man!”</p><p>At least that’s what <em>he</em> seems to think of himself.</p><p>Wait… so there are no evil <em>women</em>? And who knew drug lords shopped at JC Penney?</p><p>Yorgason said the following about The Self-Appointed Protector: “<em>I thought that he was pretty much an idiot</em>. You do not need to do something like this even if you are against any potential bans.”</p>
