may day

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?
