This is f*%ked up! Screw your 2nd Amendment!

Florida Today

Three men spotted strolling with AR-15s slung around their necks in Melbourne Beach were briefly questioned by police before it was determined that they were going out to fish.

In Florida, it is legal for anyone fishing, camping or hunting to openly carry a firearm. Similar episodes with open carry or Second Amendment gun advocates have taken place across the nation in recent years, with law enforcement agents often called to investigate.

In the Melbourne Beach case, officers talked with the unidentified men, spotted their lightweight AR-15s coupled with their fishing poles and allowed them to walk on toward Ocean Park.

One of the men later planted the flag in the sand along the shoreline as beach-goers went about their business. The men then appeared to fish for a few moments before leaving, police reported.

1. Just because you *CAN* carry it doesn't mean you *SHOULD*.

Seriously these people have serious fetishes with their guns, it's not just an obsession.

2. Why the fuck do you need an AR-15 to fish? That is a bullshit law and those men have tiny penises.

3. they were out to intimidate, and don't need a reason to carry them.

that's how the laws work in nearly every state in the union now, thanks to the NRA and their politicians.

simply "exercising" their rights. to carry the gadsen flag and freak out the libtards.

dollars to donuts they're white.

6. And if they "accidentally" shoot someone that looks "suspicious" (black person w/ a fishing pole)

they'd claim they were standing their ground.

7. Gun fetishes are disgusting.

Ever notice how these cowards NEVER carry guns in places where it might actually be dangerous?

8. The military rejects most of them

And they have a pretty low bar.

9. I live in a community where a large percentage have honorably served in the military.

Most are happier having left their guns behind in the past.

One of my former employers became a peace activist following highly decorated service in Vietnam. He shot and killed a lot of people including the teenage kid who shot him and permanently ended all his dreams of becoming a professional athlete. Minus one fully functional leg.

My dad and my father-in-law both served in the military but have never been fond of guns. My dad was a nearsighted Radar O'Reilly clerk assigned to a medical unit that didn't end up in Korea. My father-in-law was a Navy medic assigned to the Marines and used as a guinea pig assigned to atomic bomb testing.

My father-in-law was on a ship to Korea in 1953 when the armistice was signed. From there he was diverted to military units still studying atomic bomb damage in Japan. He's one of the few people I know who has witnessed a nuclear explosion up close, at the most minimal distances of survivability, and hopefully among the last.

I did a dance with the Navy. Even after they got past my asthma and crazy, they still offered me a civilian teaching job, which I declined. Which is ultimately how I met my badass wife these 30+ years.

Sometimes a guy like me gets lucky.

11. People in wars have usually had their fill of guns

Only weaklings and cowards need to carry a gun in public to feel like big men. It's pathetic and all Americans should let such people know they are unwelcome to wander at will among us without being mocked.
