We should be under no illusion for what leads to this kind of behavior.
Cindy Yorgason was in line at the J.C. Penney in Riverdale on Wednesday when she looked up and saw a shopper with “a large gun.”
Yorgason said the rifle was slung across the back of the man in front of her. When she looked closer, she saw that he also had extra ammunition clips and a sidearm in a holster on his right hip. [...]
On Thursday, 22-year-old Joseph Kelley identified himself as the man in Yorgason’s pictures. Kelley described himself as a firm believer in Second Amendment rights and said he decided to bring the guns to the store to demonstrate that they are not dangerous in the hands of law-abiding citizens. [...]
Kelley added that he carries weapons to protect children and other people from “criminals, cartels, drug lords” and other “evil men.”
Kelley was carrying an AR-15 and a loaded Glock pistol. Because you never know when you may have to confront a cartel, a drug lord, or an unspecified evildoer at your local J.C. Penny department store.
It’s only a matter of time until one of these over-compensating, Second Amendment exhibitionists is the victim of a shooting perpetrated by another equally unhinged person who was also just “exercising his rights.” And for sanity’s sake, let’s hope it doesn’t take place in a state with a “stand-your-ground” law.
