|Fashionable intimidation in St. Louis, MO|
Is it now fashionable to walk around in public places with a loaded rifle or handgun and several magazines with ammunition at the ready?
Thank God, in most states, it's still illegal to point a weapon at someone or show "...a firearm to someone in an effort to threaten them."
In Missouri, where the recent incident shown in the photo occurred, an “unlawful use of a weapon” charge "will typically result in a class D felony. "If your weapons charge is filed as a class D felony you could be looking at 1-4 years in prison and fines up to $5000. If your charge is filed as a class B misdemeanor you could be facing up to 6 months in jail and up to $500 in fines. If your charge is filed as a class A misdemeanor you could be facing up to 1 year in jail and up to $1000 in fines."
I guess, that's assuming the gun toter doesn't kill or seriously wound someone while pointing.

This is what happens when the system can't or won't respond to threats against citizens. The only things left is our 2 Amendment rights!
