Funny and sad at the same time…

Great article. My Favorite section:

Now, again, I come from Texas. I grew up in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Unless you’re wandering around a few select neighborhoods, and these guys aren’t, it’s an incredibly safe place. We’re talking about mostly middle-class white dudes living in some of the tamest suburbs on Earth. They have less reason to fear for their lives than any other group of people in human history. And yet here they are, waving a big flag that says “Come and Take It” and another big flag that advises passersby not to tread on them:

None of these guys has ever actually been trod on by anybody except maybe a few schoolyard bullies. They already have the right to carry concealed handguns against whatever phantom thugs they imagine lurking beyond their cul-de-sacs.

I saw this article yesterday, and it slipped my mind to link it. I’m glad andres picked up the slack.

At the end of the day, guns are toys for most of these people. That’s not inherently bad. Shooting old computers and cars and pallets of explosives is super fun, and a gun used for that purpose is the very definition of a toy. But these guys don’t want the world to treat them like men playing with toys. They want to be seen as warriors — serious men protecting their communities. And because no one else on Earth sees them that way …

#2. They Have a Major Persecution Complex

This is to date my favorite roundabout way of calling someone a loser.

Great article. My Favorite section:

I liked it too. It really drove home the point that some of the fits pitched down in Texas over open carry are really just jerks being butthurt because other people didn’t like their obnoxious fashion statements (those statements being their rifles).

What I’d kind of like to do is get 3 gay guys who have a good sense of fashion, show them footage of Open Carry antics down in Texas which they would then skewer Mystery Science Theater 3000-style.
