It's Past Time To Stop These "Second Amendment Audits"

"With people wound so tight, there’s a lot to think about. For one thing, we need to get them unwound so they’ll listen to reason and recognize that the Second Amendment isn’t what led to these shootings.
This is not how you get people unwound:

Some residents in a West Michigan community were shook up after a school went into lockdown when a man was seen walking with an AR-15 and two pistols. Calhoun County Sheriff deputies said the man was walking through neighborhoods in Homer May 3, 2021, conducting what he called a “Second Amendment audit.”

Look, I’m not a huge fan of open carry, though I’ll fight to defend the right to do so. However, walking around with a couple of handguns, a rifle, and body armor isn’t normalizing jack squat. This isn’t a Glock 17 in a leather holster riding on someone’s hip. This is someone who is trying to look like an active shooter in hopes of getting a response.

He’s a glory-hounding attention whore who is using our Second Amendment rights to do it."
