I, for one, will exploit this new arms market.
I'm going to design a rail attachment for the human index finger. So people can mount red dots/reflex sights or lasers or even lights to their new "assault fingers".

No, looking at someone is a microagression, if they think it is, microagressions only exist in the mind of the victim not real life, making a "cut your throat" gesture is an open aggression, a threat. But of course a critical element for something to be a threat is the intent, your comment was clearly intended in jest. the fellow in the article was clearly intending for his gesture to be a threat.

When culture mutates from the influences of toxic economic and educational policy, and things go south, suddenly there's a "gun problem" even though guns have been part of this nation for centuries.
Hell, I remember kids with gun racks in their trucks in my high school parking lot.
If you are in a conflict with someone who may actually own a gun and then they do the gun fingers and make a shooting action at you and then go back in the house would a reasonable person be sure they are not going to come out with a real gun?
