There’s no better way for the gun rights movement to lose than for us to become a freak show. I sincerely hope there is not a nascent open carry movement among furries. Not that I am condemning furries. It’s a free country. I can’t say I get it, and to tell the truth, I think it’s pretty creepy, but if getting dressed up in a kangaroo suit is what gets you off, who am I to say anything?
But when you open carry, you become the face of the gun rights movement, and a guy in a Kangaroo suit ain’t my first choice, or even my second choice. Come to think of it, a guy with a collar and a radio isn’t high up there either. I mean, don’t get me wrong, it’s a free country, but I’m going to feel free to laugh at you, and call you an idiot. Apparently the good folks in Pittsburgh agree.
UPDATE: It would seem the page in question has been removed. Good. Had you seen it, it would have been a guy with a radio strapped to his shirt, all cop style, with a black hat, and a gun strapped to his hip. He claimed to be a Kangaroo. Seriously. Furries scare me.
UPDATE: Here’s the original out of my cache. Don’t be that guy.
UPDATE: Rich makes a good point in the comments, that I ought not give the guy attention. Links removed.
