Ask a Cop: Should I start carrying my AR-15 into the grocery store? By Officer XXXXXXX

i didn't put 'Officer Anonymous' in the title for obvious reasons...

I own an assault rifle and I have many friends and colleagues that own assault rifles. Some own more than the armory’s of small countries. I don’t think any of them would consider slinging one up to go to the movies. People will argue that you never know when a gunman will come in and start shooting. This argument contradicts the argument that you shouldn’t ban rifles because they are responsible for very few deaths in the country and mass shootings rarely happen.

The primary job of a spoon is to feed and can really only kill if used in a prison setting. I have never seen a case of mass feeding that led to death. If there was, it probably would take a long time unless it involved curry and a roll of duct tape.

Please stop thinking social networking sites are the place to make your stand on gun politics. I have yet to see a senator or president get on the news and say that they were changing their mind on guns because they saw status update about guns that got a million “likes.”

Instead, how about we start getting more politically motivated. Go to a rally. Write an actual letter or email one. Call your senator or congressman or congresswoman. Try being active in government and politics instead of regurgitating crap that somebody made up in their basement with zero fact checking, like the Sandy Hook "truthers."
