I’m posting this for a friend of mine. He works as an armed security guard in the Denver area. He also happens to be a volunteer for the Romney presidential scampaign in his home county. He related the following story to me last week, and I thought it seemed like the perfect thing to talk about as we head into this stupid fucking debate tonight in Denver.
On Friday, September 21 I went to the Colorado Romney for President Office in Lakewood.
I went there to make calls for an upcoming Romney rally. After making calls for two hours, I went to my car to grab my gear for work. My employer has a policy of having to be in uniform when you arrive to work, so I planned to change at the Romney office.
I let one of the campaign staffers that I was going to grab my gear to get ready for work, he said, “ok.” I went into the bathroom, and began to change.
Because the shitter stalls are too small for me to move in, I walked out to adjust my body armor. A dude who was pissing when I walked out to adjust, saw me adjust the vest, walked out of the bathroom and gathered a group of staffers in the office.
When I walked out they were all in a corner waiting for me to come out. I heard the guy who was in the bathroom say, “Oh, I didn’t see the shirt.”
If I was a nut job, they made themselves a very easy target. The best way to defuse a situation is by talking, as the fuck face walked out of the bathroom he could of asked if a was a cop or something. They could have left the building, called the cops, anything besides sitting in a corner waiting for a shootout.
The dude I told I was going change there later called and said, “You almost caused a panic here. Not a good idea in a Republican building since most of us are armed.”
My response was “I have 52 rounds, and they were all in a corner. You may have guns, but zero commonsense.”
Basically if they got in a SHTF scenario they would have zero clue and what to really do, and could end up being the NYPD and shoot more innocents than the threat itself.
First of all, it seems that this campaign office was full of pussies. If I was one of them and I was told someone was suiting up with body armor in the bathroom and I was really concerned that there was about to be a shooting, I’D FUCKING LEAVE. I would not stand in a corner waiting to get shot in the face. That’s assuming that I believed the weeny that said there was a psycho in the bathroom in the first place.
Second of all, our dear friend keeps having crazy gun shit happening to him. He’s had three pretty intense experiences in the last two years, including having an armed robber stick a Kimber in his face.
Third, this is a good time to bring up Romney’s record on guns. Romney is one of the few governors in the country with the distinction of signing into law a sweeping assault weapons ban in his state. Barack Obama has never signed an assault weapons ban. That’s not to say that he wouldn’t, but the factors that are dictating gun policy in this country are not the ideologies of the man in the big leather chair. It’s the political suicide that would result from pushing that bullshit right now. Obama couldn’t get legislation passed right now if he wanted to, nor could Romney. So fuck off with your paranoia.
Fourth I just want to reiterate that Romney’s campaign staff are pussies. I don’t think I drove that point hard enough. But they are. Giant wet pussies.
