Poe’s Law.

Reality is so warped that sarcastic and satirical statements can be made that are verbatim restated in complete sincerity. See “pull yourself up by your boot straps,” an idiom stated when attempting to do an impossible task dated back to 1834. It’s now an actual sincere statement used by out of touch people.

Satire and sarcasm are dead.

Also on the front page of reddit today is a story of women who clipped a motorcyclist with her car. He follows her home, she pulls a gun, he's also packing and he lights her up killing her in her own driveway. She was pregnant. Obviously this was Florida.

So you're right, the particular Karen in this picture is VERY lucky she wasn't brandishing at another gun owner.

EDIT: Seems like some people don't think I was clear that the example I gave is self defense from the motorcyclist's point of view. She intentionally hit him and brandished a gun at him. I wasn't trying to defend the driver or attack the motorcyclist in this situation.

The rider only then pulled out his gun and shot the lady.

I don’t think it’s a political function, I think it’s a function of social media. Now everyone thinks that their opinion and life in general is the most important in the world.

It's not "angrier", it's less afraid of criminal or social consequences because of mid perceived consent and undeniable encouragement from government officials.

Our society is just a group of made up, but universally accepted, facts and rules.

For example, If you go to best buy with your pants off and yell "who wants a black Friday discount on this!" you'll very likely have immediate criminal and social consequences. Because of that accepted societal fact, some people that would do this, don't do it solely for that reason.

But one can also argue that the act itself isn't harmful, we all have stuff that people can see with our pants off, just like we all have elbows, but people don't get mad when others are sleeveless in public, we've just made an agreed upon rule to cover up certain parts at certain times and we all except and enforce that. But if a president started saying something like this, you might see more and more "pantless freedom protests" at your local grocery story,

"y'know... They've been covering you all up these democrats, okay - we call them the dems for short, okay. And it's like, sometimes you just want to feel that breeze, am I right, folks? And sometimes there's kids in the room and that's fine too, okay, they probably like it. And when you people come to my rallies, okay, the pants are operational and they're optional - we say optional, okay folks. And "pants" rhymes with France and it's like, you're not turning me French - am I right on this one folks, okay?"

When you un-conceal the gun, then you have to defend the gun and not let it fall into the hands of whom you’re interacting with. So you may be setting up a series of events that ends with the gun being used.

Further, occupants of that vehicle pulled out a cellphone during the altercation, they could have just as easily pulled their own gun and would be fully within their rights to fire to defend themselves after being drawn upon.

Don’t pull the gun unless your life is in danger and there is no other solution.

I’ve tried to figure this out, because it’s an absolute dumpster fire. I swear the amount of “omg was that a gunshot” posts…you would think people are living in a war zone!

Heard a lady use that exact same phrase when I worked retail. She was telling some other woman that she was abusing her children by having them wear masks and was just shocked when the woman got angry and my managers had to deescalate. "Everyone is surrounding me! This is why I carry!". It was her big mouth that caused the problem and she was ready to shoot someone over it.

"Everyone is surrounding me! This is why I carry!"

I would have called the cops, because that's a threat.

u/quiero-una-cerveca 7d ago

Totally. I’ve seen normal interactions blown way out of proportion by these people and then they want to solve the resulting drama with their gun. Or the guy that wanted to shoot a drone with his shotgun in the middle of town because it flew over his yard.

The most common and frustrating response I see on Nextdoor is when someone posts about suspicious activity at their house. Someone knocking on door, looking in windows, etc. Inevitably there is always someone who scolds them "it's your fault for letting this happen. You should have gotten a gun and prevented them from violating you like this."

It's a goddamn miracle we don't have 5 shootings a day in my neighborhood, the way these armchair commandos talk online.

This is a crime. You can't pull a gun on someone for no reason.

This photo goes a long way to explain why we are heading quickly toward a violent civil/cultural war in the US. Social media and the pandemic are only expediting factors, not the root causes. It is not a question of 'if', only 'when' at this point.

Annie get your gun.

As a supporter of the 2nd Amendment and a Native Texan, I hope this woman is caught, prosecuted, serves jail time, and loses her 2nd Amendment Right.

There is zero reason to do this over a damned parking space. Carrying a firearm comes with certain responsibilities and a solid mental state of those responsibilities. This woman has no respect for those responsibilities nor has a mental state that would allow her to carry a firearm.

Beware of holiday parking aggression. We were waiting for car to back up so we could pull into parking place. A young lady passenger on the next aisle over jumped out got in front of my bumper, put her hands on my hood as I eased into spot. It turned into an all out encounter. Security guy came out and got in her face. Crazy people don’t understand manors. We knew they would vandalize …so we left.

I hope she's arrested.

It's people like her, pulling guns and threatening over the dumbest of shit, that scare me about the law of everyone can grab a gun in Texas.

My brother works for a company that owns several apartment complexes and such, and he has to go around to deal out eviction notices or gather payments of rents and a lot of people there are rather entitled and given my brother has a bit of too much sass that I'm terrified of someone pulling a gun on him because they think they can.

Edit : I'm also born and raised in Texas, so to see this makes me anxious and wanting to move out of the state, along with the other problems the state has...

This is 100% illegal and morally wrong. This idiot needs to have rights taken away and be put in jail. She is giving a bad name to every responsible gun owner.

Wow, this brings flashbacks for me. I was traveling down I-20 with my 3 children who were 1 yr, 3 yr, and 5 years old. About about an hour west of Ft. Worth a man in a pick-up started riding my tail and I couldn't figure out why. I was in so much fear, I decided to take an exit and pull into a large convenience/gas store. When I took the exit, he followed me. When I pulled up at the store, he pulled in behind me and blocked me from exiting. Within seconds, he was at my window trying to get me to roll down my window. He was red in the face with rage and screaming at the top of the voice. I rolled my window down a crack to see what he wanted and the began to rant about how I had cut him off in traffic. As he screamed, all three kids began to cry in fear. That was the first time he noticed the kids. He immediately stopped screaming and walked off. I hope he thinks about that day that he lost his sh*& on a young mom and feels some measure of guilt about his actions. I am thankful he didn't have a gun. I'm thinking in today's day and age he would have shot first and asked questions later.

u/SkyLukewalker 7d ago

This is the thing with everyone being armed. Anyone else could have shot that woman in that moment and claimed they were protecting someone or felt their own life was threatened, and then anyone could shoot the person who shot her, and so on and so on until everyone in the parking lot was dead. And they would all be "good guys with guns."

These are the people we need to take guns from! The ignorant, self-righteous that think because they took a Range Safety Class and go to the range "sometimes" they are so.ehow legally allowed to draw down on everyone for everything. This ladyshould absolutely be denied the right to carry. Just because you can doesn't always mean you should. Most people assume firearm crimes are just commited by criminals with stolen, or ghost guns (the new popular phrase) which is overwhelmingly true but they like to forgot about Crazy Aunt Karen whoegally obtained a firearm prior to ha ing tot ake any safety courses, first aid classes, or understand the legality and responsibility of carrying a licensed firearm. Nice American Heart T-shirt. You're one of the reasons people don't like us! (Us= white people).
