Rollert explained that he had been shooting his mother’s 9 mm Glock handgun and his brother’s 40-caliber Glock handgun earlier that day and decided to go to Wal-Mart to buy ammunition to replace what he had used, bringing the gun to make sure that the ammunition he bought fit into it, the complaint stated. He put a leather jacket on over the body armor and belt, he said, in order “to be safe and hide everything” and not create a disturbance.
Upon entering the store, the complaint stated, Rollert encountered a Wal-Mart employee and opened his jacket, telling the employee, “I don’t want you to worry, I got a loaded gun on.”
Is there a charge for being a complete idiot?Â I don’t even want to think about how he planned to make sure the ammunition “fit,” or why he was wearing body armor to go shooting (I would think it’s the other shooters who need to be wearing body armor around this guy).
This would be something I’d expect the Brady Campaign to pick up for their blog, except that it doesn’t involve any dead children.
