Yeah, that’s a great idea, you immature, irrational, panty-shitting dumbass!
The link I provided above shows the puerile mentality of a hoplophobic assplunger that claims to blog on behalf of something called the Institute for Philosophy in Public Life, whose philosophy apparently involves cowardice and theft.
See, said assplunger doesn’t like the fact that there are citizens out there who exercise their rights publicly and perfectly legally. He/she/it doesn’t like said rights, and thinks that peaceable citizens should be prevented from exercising them in public by any means possible. One of those means is outright theft. This moron proposes that anytime someone sees a citizen openly exercising their right to keep and bear arms, they should just leave.
My proposal is as follows: we should all leave. Immediately. Leave the food on the table in the restaurant. Leave the groceries in the cart, in the aisle. Stop talking or engaging in the exchange. Just leave, unceremoniously, and fast.
But here is the key part: don’t pay. Stopping to pay in the presence of a person with a gun means risking your and your loved ones’ lives; money shouldn’t trump this. It doesn’t matter if you ate the meal. It doesn’t matter if you’ve just received food from the deli counter that can’t be resold. It doesn’t matter if you just got a haircut. Leave. If the business loses money, so be it. They can make the activists pay.
In a real, moral world, that’s called theft, assplunger.
The owner of the restaurant spent money purchasing food and paying a cook to prepare it. They also pay servers to keep your drinks refilled and bring you said food. If you leave without paying, you are appropriating said resources – that’s STEALING for those of you whose moral compass has been eaten by zombies.
The owner of said supermarket pays employees, who work hard to keep the shelves stocked, the carts stacked, and the products in their proper places. You walk out on a cart full of groceries without paying, you’ve just appropriated those efforts.
This is what this “Institute” claims people should do – commit illegal acts in an effort to prevent others from committing legal ones.
Yeah, makes all the sense in the world!
Following this procedure has several advantages. First, it protects people. Second, it forces the businesses to really choose where their loyalties are. If the second amendment is as important as people claim, then people should be willing to pay for it. God knows, free speech is tremendously expensive. If it weren’t, I’d be reading this on ESPN during prime time, not posting this on Blogger.
This author has the reasoning ability of a rabid warthog. Forcing businesses to respect people’s legal rights by stealing from it? Great. Forcing people who legally exercise their rights to pay for the illegal acts of those who cannot or will not? Terrific. Carrying a firearm in the open without infringing on anyone’s fundamental rights? Must be stopped at all costs.
Hate to tell you this, you incoherent sack of dessicated donkey gonads. It’s not the price of the First Amendment that’s keeping you off ESPN and on Blogger, drooling your specious brain droppings to a limited audience. It’s the fact that you’re a bungling sack of fetid smegma, who is incapable of intelligent thought, and no network executive with a shred of business sense would ever pay you to actually broadcast your insipid, hysterical cretinism to a breathing audience!
Now, I have blogged before about some open carry advocates setting the gun rights movement back with their irresponsible, disrespectful behavior. I don’t agree with the way they choose to “normalize” the presence of guns in society. I think it reeks of infantile “HA HA! You can’t stop me!” behavior. That said, they are doing nothing illegal, and they have not violated anyone else’s rights with their presence.
Rudeness and inconsiderate behavior are annoying, but not illegal. And they certainly should not be punished for said rudeness by being forced to pay for hoplophobes’ outright theft merely for choosing to exercise their rights!
I would certainly hope that any cockrocket who decides to engage in such behavior and attempts to “dine and dash” as a way of proving a political point gets arrested and charged.
But my guess is, the vast majority of them will 1) shit themselves in fear 2) whip out their smartphones and proceed to voice their indignation on social media about the presence of armed individuals, and 3) slink away quietly after paying their bill as quickly as possible in the sincere and hysterical belief that any sudden move will result in their quick ventilation.
