The Feral Irishman has a post up about the mall clearing overreaction to a man with an umbrella. Seems to me that if we had something like the 2nd Amendment, seeing people carrying firearms would be commonplace, but apparently, it’s just cause for hysteria just to see someone carrying an umbrella because it’s black and tubular and OMFG!!!!11!! it looks like a gun.
Makes this umbrella look like a very bad idea.
In a free society this would just be a novelty. In a place like Massachusetts, it would get you killed.
The best safety lies in fear.
