......in Charlottesville, VA who decided to walk into a grocery store carrying a loaded AR-15 "because he can" under Virginia law. He even had a note in his pocket explaining that he was exercising his 2nd Amendment rights just in case the police shot and killed him.

Man Goes Grocery Shopping With Loaded AR-15 Assault Rifle — Because He Can

A 22-year old Virginia man decided to express his Second Amendment rights by going grocery shopping with a loaded AR-15 assault rifle on his back. Police wrongly drew their weapons on the unidentified man after shoppers were frightened, but did not arrest the man (image, top) because in Virginia, carrying a loaded assault rifle is not illegal unless the owner is a felon, took possession of the weapon illegally, or if the weapon is concealed.

I wonder what would have happened if that grocery store had been filled with other "law-abiding gun owners." I also wonder whether Virginia will review that law now. Naaaaaa.........
