I think the biggest problem is the internet, and people that don't even know what their own wiener is for are influencing the sane people's lives and rights really.



Sane...like the idea there is going to be a civil war over US political parties?

I would agree with that. I've seen a lot of "armed dorks" in my time. Yet? I never felt compelled to talk about it.

And I answered, and even defended his use of calling them kids. Then when I said there are 19yo who are mature enough to be trusted with a gun and I was at 19 he ad hom attacked me.

You people are defending his indefensible posts, you should stop before he drags you down.

I don’t think they were either.. and never once claimed they were..

However the path to hell is paved with good intentions right???

Good intentions won’t stop a kid from misdiagnosising a situation or hitting a bystandard in a situation THEY escalated.. that never escalates if they don’t decide to intervene..





They have to be at least 21 , right?
If it was my town I would start a dialogue with them just to feel then out .

I empathize with you and all the bizarre responses you are getting from others.

Yeah, I would be concerned too (at least curious) by seeing teens/young adults walking around in a mob open carrying.

The news is worthy of a post.

Whether that is good or bad depends on the mentality of the kids/young adults.

Drag me down where?

Seems like the hyperbole infected the thread and OP went along with it.

Slow saturday it seems. It ain't that serious.

For one thing, the FBI probably didn't know about it. Second, no "Federal law" or State law was broken. Thirdly, If they were arrested by the local LEO the FBI should be arresting the local cops for violating "federal law" and the "bill of rights". Thank the "law" for not getting involved! It could've got confusing! A bunch of "badges" arresting each other. Lol!

Guess you missed the "until... one of them go mental" part of the "what if".

actually it seems people made a judgement call based on the OP post history, and then he proved them right.

shoutout to that website people of walmart

also on origins of the "armed thugs" at late night walmart

a few of my friends and i used to do something similar but it was more concerted on our part

we would have 1 or 2 guys look like private security and the rest of the guys would dress to the 9's

we'd show up at late night walmart trips, "escorted" by our private security

we'd wear sunglasses at night, suits, ties, nice fashion clothes


Just that appearance was enough for people to assume we were famous.
Hilarious how many people would take out their phones and take pictures of the "band" or whatever they thought.

It was pretty funny, one of our guys got taken for a one direction member.

hilarious

I felt this is what the OP was about and this is from page 6:

It’s the equivalent to the idiots dressing up as superhero’s and running around New York.


Seems pretty consistent. What am I missing about this supposed judgement call?

So "individual freedom" is based on "until"? Or a "what if"? So nothing happening, needs legal scrutiny to prevent it from happening? The fact the "dorks" did nothing illegal is a scary thought?
How long will/would it be "until", you go "mental"? If ever? I have no way of knowing really, unless the government protects me. Lol! I think the "majority" should pass "laws" to protect me, from you. Do you see how stupid this is getting? If we as a nation are going to base or liberty on "what if", can, could maybe, kinda sorta... ? Then the Cowards have got way to much sway, and we need to remedy that.

You need to step back take a deep breath and think about what is actually being said.

odzeandennz was merely talking about what people would be posting if something like that was to happen and not that anyone needs to be arrested or any laws need to be passed.

I’m guessing between 17-20..

A couple still had achne and were dressed like the black trench coat crowd from highscool.

Dark clothes, combat boots , camo/Black jackets ..

I should have taken a pic.. would make a great meme..


Were they real guns or airsoft? If they were holstered, the tip would be hidden. Maybe they were out playing airsoft and came in for more ammo? They might be a regular play group.

I know we had an incident where a van dropped off some kids in similar gear to what you described in a neighborhood with their "assault weapons," and a freaked out neighbor called the police on them. Lucky for the kids (older teens), an alert parent headed off trouble otherwise, someone could have gotten shot.

Because the outcast kids that age are the prime demographic for school shootings.. not militias.. not security forces..

There is almost no chance ANY of them were trained to actually intervene..

It’s the equivalent to the idiots dressing up as superhero’s and running around New York..

You're calling them outcasts yet from your description they seem to be a bunch of friends hanging out together at the mall like a load of other teens do. Hardly outcasts just because they are going through what sounds like a typical 'alternative' phase.

19 is a kid to all the other adults in the room..

No. They are not.
Therein lies the heart of one of your problems
You keep mentioning "trench coat kids" of high school .
Whats wrong with "trench coat kids" ?
Are you still in high school yourself ?
Fear of older young adults ?
Plus a deep fear of firearms ?
A fear of camo as well ?
Like to fight a lot ? As you have mentioned as such multiple times .
"The greatest warrior need never fight." - Asian philosophy



Fear is the path to the dark side.
Fear leads to anger.
Anger leads to hate.
Hate leads to suffering.

Four little paragraphs of commentary, followed by nine pages of personal attacks.

Good God, what have you people come to? Do you ever think about how much like juvenile bullies you sound?
Or ARE you all juvenile bullies?

Ugh.

If I went to - anywhere - and saw a bunch of weirdo's in a 'gang-like' situation with guns I'd get back in my car and get the hell out of there. I might even call the police. And so would most of you armchair bullies.

And oh yeah... anybody who thinks 19 is not a kid, must be 18.

I love how the OP throws ad-homs my way after I defended him and we're the bullies. You people are truly sick.
