Today In Responsible Gun Ownership: Oregon Edition

Just in case y’all were under the mistaken impression that open carry doofi (doofuses?) were restricted to red states:

Portland TV station KPTV reported that the 21-year-old victim, who had bought a semi-automatic .22-caliber handgun earlier in the day, was openly carrying the weapon down a street in Gresham, Ore. while talking to his cousin. The two men told investigators that another man approached them on their walk and asked for a cigarette.

Police said the group’s conversation eventually turned to the victim’s new gun. The man who asked for a cigarette allegedly pulled his own firearm from his waistband and said “I like your gun, give it to me,” according to police.

KPTV reported that the man fled after the victim handed over his new purchase. The news station described the weapon the man used in the robbery as a black, possibly semi-automatic gun.

This is what I keep expecting to happen in New Orleans. Our criminals are a bold lot and most open carry enthusiasts strike me as being a sandwich short of a picnic.

It’s a pity that the Oregonian gun doofus didn’t heed Johnny Cash’s sage advice:

I don’t know about you but I *always* take Johnny’s advice.

  1. This was favorite move of the singer James Brown’s father. He’d spot someone carrying that he figured didn’t have the nerve to use it and approach them shouting “Shoot me!” They’d draw and stand there and he’d just take the gun away from them. Apparently he did this a number of time and never got shot.

  2. Sorry. Can’t get past the first quote block that a good guy with a gun was robbed by another good guy with a gun. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!
