Does dressing like a grown up preclude tactical arm tape, notch hats, and magazine bandoliers?
Bird Law – Still Not Governed By Reason:
APPLETON, Wis. — When Mark Scheffler was asked to leave a gun protest, along with his brown hen named Winchester, on Saturday, it was precisely the point he wanted to make at the popular gathering.
Chickens are far safer than firearms and laws allowing for open carry need to change, said Scheffler of Appleton. “Carrying a loaded assault weapon in downtown Appleton, the fine is zero dollars,” he said. “The fine for carrying a loaded chicken — and she is loaded — is $263.50.”

LOL I’ve literally been waiting forever to make a real life bird law reference.
MrColionNoir calls out Starbucks president Howard ‘Fucc Boi’ Schultz:
0:12 – The pro/anti gay argument to me is the exact same as what’s going on here with guns.
0:50 – yea no doubt… it’s a pain to have to pack up all my stuff when I get my 4th or 5th venti iced coffee refill of the day and need to take a leak. That’s how the world works though I suppose.
I enjoy MrColionNoir’s references because they remind me of my own, but I still have to always wonder if they are going over the heads of 99.9% of his audience like I think they are. Oh well, mine probably do too, but we’re both doing alright.
I had a feeling this was going to happen sooner or later:
If it’s just a “request”, why even bother? It basically just makes Starbucks look spineless… pick one side of the issue or else simply go with the “we just go by whatever the laws say you can do” stance they had before.
Recently, however, we’ve seen the “open carry” debate become increasingly uncivil and, in some cases, even threatening. Pro-gun activists have used our stores as a political stage for media events misleadingly called “Starbucks Appreciation Days” that disingenuously portray Starbucks as a champion of “open carry.” To be clear: we do not want these events in our stores. Some anti-gun activists have also played a role in ratcheting up the rhetoric and friction, including soliciting and confronting our customers and partners.

Hahah bonus points for using the word “ratchet”… too bad not in the way I hoped.
Consider buying an ENDO Apparel Guns And Coffee t-shirt to make sheeple who are against open carry and drink coffee feel uncomfortable.
Hat tip: The dozen people who sent me related stories.
0:05 – haha him and Zoe Saldana. If I don’t know MrColionNoir like I think I do, I would think he was attempting to mention her until she finally notices and agrees to go on a date.
0:18 – Whoa, hold up… wtf is wrong with mimosas? Champagne & orange juice is part of a balanced breakfast, and a good way to start your day as far as I’m concerned. It’s pretty much a requirement when you make as many crepes as I do. P.S. If they taste like spoiled orange juice you need to step your champagne game up and start dumping more in the glass. Real talk.
0:43 – “Are we that timid and sheep-like as a society that the mere prescence of an obviously unloaded rifle warrants the calling of the cops?” I don’t know if that was supposed to be rhetorical… but the answer is yes. haha
1:14 – Calling guys with guns to take some other guys with guns, guns away. Yea that’s the definition of irony right there.
Basically what he’s saying is that we shouldn’t give up our rights but baiters gonna bait… trolls gonna troll… assholes gonna asshole. Yea that sounds about right.
MrColionNoir is wearing the Defend Freedom t-shirt from ENDO Apparel.
I really don’t know what the answer is… but like I mentioned in another post recently what I think needs to happen first, is the public needs to be educated on the laws regarding open carry in their state. This education might have to come from the 911 operator, after he/she asks some simple probing questions. Whether someones motive for open carry is comfort, to get a rise out of people, or anything else it really shouldn’t matter because the bottom line is if it’s legal, it’s legal.
