Open Carry To Rustle Jimmies Shall Not Be Infringed

Seattle, WA.  May 1, 2015:

The scene is set by this kid (Shayne Butts) carrying a rifle while wearing a camouflage plate carrier with a gasmask hanging off of it, magazines on his BACK, in addition to other magazine pouches and god knows what those other rear pouches are for.. Oh and he has one of those “fuck me up fam” type haircuts we see in the barber memes.  Is he a hero?  Is he a villain?  In my eyes he’s neither, he’s just doing it to prove some a point he thinks needs to, and it’s within his rights to do so.  Would I do that?  haha not a chance.  Do I think it’s disruptive and sets the open carry movement back?  I’m with Shanye on this one… I don’t really care if people are uncomfortable.  If they don’t like the laws in the state or country as a whole, the world is a big place… take up residence elsewhere.

You can tell Shayne is extremely nervous.  He keeps his cool though despite being heckled and filmed buy dozens of people.  What was with that main big dude getting all up in his business with that tough guy attitude?  Oh another winner at 1:44 in video #2 surfaces too screaming “You’re putting every person of color’s life in danger by bringing that here.  You are threatening me.  You are threatening me.” *eye roll*  Holy that lady at the end of video #2 also is so obnoxious…

Open-Carry-Most-Interesting-Man-In-The-WorldI think one angle that may have worked better would have been if Shayne would have just 100% kept his mouth shut and didn’t bother engaging any of those emotionally charged individuals at all.

There is a short interview you can watch with Shayne over at King5.

Kyle Lamb does NOT approve.

Thoughts?

This is an open carry video worth watching. I’m not a fan of most people who partake in these open carry demonstrations to bait police but I respect this guy. He has some balls and causes the protestors self expose how unwily they really are.

I don’t understand what the hell these protesters are going on about with this guy. Seems like maximum level hurt feelings with a touch of reverse racism. I cannot fathom how open carry is a race related issue, yet they are all screaming that he is a racist. I wonder what would happen if a darker skinned person took the same open carry walk. If the results were any different it would expose the true racists.

Regardless of race it seems like there’s an egregious contradiction. The hyper-liberal demonstrators preach a message of equality but are the first ones to condemn such a freedom passionate individual in the least respectful, peaceful, or intelligible ways; notwithstanding gun ownership is probably something they know little about.

One of the lefts most effective tactics is to apply their own definition to words. Reverse racism would be no racism, we need to be careful not to let them define words which is allowing them to guide the conversation to their advantage. Just call it what it is racism, it was fully on display by several people in this video. I admire this mans display of not taking their bait and remaining cool while exercising his rights while under hate filled rants and physical intimidation. This is the way to demonstrate open carry, not the police baiting shit that hurts more than it can possibly help, let the leftist have the anti-cop territory.

I think they would give him an near equally hard time whether or not he had the gun; I think his image (white guy, fuck me up fam haircut, any camouflage anything, gas mask) is enough for them to give him shit. He was unwelcome regardless of the rifle, it was just a tipping point for the group. I normally am not the biggest open carry fan (baiting the police seems like it is a waste of time) but this guy definitely held his ground in a pretty reasonable manner.

Looks like a bunch of indoctrinated Frankfurt School cultural Marxists. Pretend leftists who like to make noise about rights but are actually just nanny state fascists without the fortitude to push for any real change themselves. I’m sure many of them ran home and posted on Tumblr about how triggered and oppressed they felt.

I would not call myself a marxist or socialist per se, but even the “far left” understands the importance of arms.

“Under no pretext should arms and ammunition be surrendered; any attempt to disarm the workers must be frustrated, by force if necessary.” -Karl Marx

I think people need to see how irrational and emotional these liberals are. Good job my man!

Yeah, +1 for sheer badassery alone. Doing his thing in the most anti-American stronghold in the country like that with no evidence of white guilt, free-speech guilt, masculinity guilt, or any other expected guilt for the area gives this kid a big thumbs up from me, open carry or not.

I don’t want to sound like what the old timers would call a male chauvinist pig, but:

It’s pretty obvious she’s not getting any attention. As the only white man with a gun, he’s going to get a lot of attention, so she’s rationally set herself up as his antagonist to scoop up some of the overflow attention for her side of this demonstration.

That said, it’s pretty funny they want him to leave. He would have earned some big bonus points for telling them they were castrated and powerless to drive him out. Freedom means you have to endure people of disapproving opinions. ;)

I think open carry rallies could be fun.
Just dudes chilling out, toting guns, and being all “hey wassupers”.

If I had the money, I’d OC a Barrett and two gold plated tiger stripe Desert Eagles.

That way I would piss off EVERYBODY

Hoplophobes and rasist. Did i hear, ‘Banish the cops’. Really? Then whos going to come save you from my scarey defensive tools? Anyone ever heard ‘a right not exercised is a right lost’? Im more scared of you irrationally taking away my righs then you are of my gun. And it is no different when blacks carry guns – go to Las Vegas. Last time i was there I saw several black men open carry – zero white. One of them on fremont street with TONS of people and cops all around. Only one was wearing camo – but even he was not arrested nor protested against.

And im sorry but one cant simply ‘bait the cops’ by following the law. All videos Ive seen the cops clearly state ‘we recieved several calls and have to report to this’. Then it should be an id check, gun serial check, and they leave. Just ask CSPD what happens when you wrongfully arrest an open carry citizen – you get sued. And lose.

I say good for him, its sad that nowadays with the increasing loss of freedom on a hourly basis that I’d condone this.

Nope, can’t get through video #2. I had to quit after the “You’re putting everyone here in danger” quote. For my blood pressure.

He reminds me of Kevin Bacon in Death Sentence (2007) where used the clippers to completely fuck up his hair.

I love the moment he’s accused of creating an “unsafe” atmosphere, and just replies : “I feel pretty safe…”.

Oh, and Mrs “out of respect” do this-do that… could you please stop talking while hiding your face? Just out of respect.

“In my eyes he’s neither, he’s just doing it to prove some a point he thinks needs to”

That’s what I tend to think about guys like this who walk around with rifles and random milsurp gear (especially the ones who pack their own cameras). I wonder if this is just their way of acting out slightly and getting attention. He certainly succeeded there.

I’m not hating, anybody who wants to walk around with that kind of stuff won’t be bothering me, but that doesn’t mean I won’t be wondering what’s going on in that head of yours.

As for the idiot May Day protesters and random idiot Seattle residents… Meh… Are we really surprised by them?

I think many, if not most “open carry YouTube guys” are attention seeking asshats, but I would stand behind this guy. He walked into an obviously hostile environment to stand up for what he believes in, and did not just seem to be trying to bait people into confrontation for video hits.

With that said, there is nothing that bothers me more about this subject than the “we will not tolerate your intolerance!” opinions from both sides, primarily anti-2A hypocritical parasites. It’s funny/sad, to see people who are supposedly marching for “peace, equal rights, tolerance” etc. screaming and threatening someone that they don’t agree with.

Oh, and the haircut has to be an inside joke or something. Not possible he could think that looks good.
