How stupid can you get?

KPTV – FOX 12

No common sense, some people:

Two men walked the streets of Portland armed with assault weapons earlier this week because they said they wanted to “educate” residents, who reacted by fleeing and calling police.


Warren Drouin and Steven Boyce told KPTV that they were forced to take drastic measure to make sure people were aware of their Second Amendment rights after 20 children in Connecticut were massacred with same type of AR-15 rifles they were carrying.


“We’re not threatening anyone,” Drouin explained. “We don’t have that type of criminal behavior.”


“This happens to open that line of communication, to let people know that you can defend yourself in a time of crisis or any time that you want to,” Boyce added.


But KPTV’s Kaitlyn Bolduc reported that the demonstration created a “state of panic” in Portland’s Sellwood neighborhood.


“Employees inside of E Hair Studio hid in the back of the salon and locked there doors, while other ran for help for fear the two were really there to cause harm,” Bolduc said.

    It truly would have been hilarious if one of their fellow gun nuts had assumed they were terrorists and taken them out.

    What would have happened, one wonders, had these men not been of the Caucasian persuasion?

    For the record, we of the rest of Oregon (where even the “liberals” are armed) disavow any connection to Portland. Like Cascadia, it’s a place unto self.

    Stupid indeed. What the hell good is an unloaded gun?

    If you see someone walking the streets with an AR-15, you might possibly shoot first.

    Seems to me that the businesses in the area could easily demonstrate that their bottom lines were adversely impacted by this stunt. That should give them standing to sue these two morons for damages. Perhaps that would prevent or deter a recurrence of this idiocy?

    ““We’re not threatening anyone,” Drouin explained. “We don’t have that type of criminal behavior.””

    Translation from wingnut: “Waddya mean we look threatening? We’re WHITE!”
