Gunfight Dickfight At The OK Corral Valdosta Kwik-E-Mart

From Album 5

The new Georgia legally-wear-your-strap-on-pretty-much-anywhere is working out about as well as you'd expect:

Around 3:00 p.m., a customer entered the Enmark store on Park Avenue with a gun holstered to his hip. Another customer, who was also carrying a holstered weapon, approached the first man and demanded to see his ID and gun permit.

As he demanded the first customer’s ID, the second man pulled his own gun from its holster, but pointed it at the floor. The first customer protested that he isn’t legally required to show any ID or permits.

Still holding his gun, the second customer demanded again to see the other man’s permit and ID. The first customer, undeterred by the unholstered weapon, paid for his purchases and exited the store, then called police.

Because, after all, an armed society is a polite society, right? Which must make convenience stores the most polite place around. Especially late at night.

Some say Western Civilization is in decline. That may or may not be true, but in Valdosta it seems like the real question is whether it ever arose.

  1. Wouldn’t this prove the stereotype of folks with open carry being a bunch of losers who want to go around telling everybody else what to do (and their guns force everyone to obey them) ?
    Or I always ask about SYG (don’t know if GA is technically SYG, but it applies to these two citizens demanding to see each other’s papers): If you and I are carrying a firearm and in a SYG state and we meet on a sidewalk travelling in opposite directions, the normal, polite thing to do is for each of us to move to the respective edge of the sidewalk and maybe even twist at the hip in order that we can pass each other. But to concede control of the sidewalk is to concede my God-given rights as a citizen guaranteed me by the 14th Amendment. So neither of us moves to the side of the sidewalk and we both are preventing the other from passing us. (or for Valdosta, neither of us have the rights to demand to see documentation and to provide documentation to the other would be to concede defeat).
    So the only logical thing to do is to start firing at each other.
