What Happens When a White Man Parades Around Outside a School in a Bullet-Proof Vest With an AK-47?

A: Nothing
US News • Views: 39,673

With all of the police shootings of unarmed black people in the news lately, it’s interesting to note what happens when a white man shows up outside a high school dressed in a bullet-proof vest, with an AK-47 and a full clip of ammunition.

Nothing, that’s what happens.

And Leonard Embody says if you think there’s something wrong with what he’s doing, you need psychological help.

Witnesses say Embody was pacing Hillsboro Road, dressed much like a soldier, and it had a lot of people nervous. So nervous that 911 dispatchers had their hands full.

[…]

When Channel 4 met up with Embody on Thursday, he offered no apologies and even called Wednesday’s demonstration a success.

“A school is a prime place to be able to hand out my leaflets and educate children that guns aren’t dangerous as people think they are. Certainly a man carrying a gun doesn’t mean they’re going to get shot,” he said.

[…]

Embody said he’ll continue making the rounds, defending the Second Amendment, no matter who it offends.

“I don’t think I look terrifying. Other people may think I look terrifying, but that’s in their own minds and that’s something they should deal with … with maybe a psychologist,” Embody said.

Metro school officials said their resource officers were aware of Embody’s demonstration, and had he set foot on campus, they would have arrested him.

Outside that, what he was doing is perfectly legal because of Tennessee’s open carry law, meaning there’s nothing that prohibits people from carrying a gun out in the open.
