First, a quick story about an enthusiastic and patriotic soldier, stationed at Fort Bragg that simply wanted to get some pictures taken at the local mall to likely send to family and friends while sporting his totally sweet AR-15 while wearing some ‘totally rad’ body armor, in front of a Macy’s department store. He was cited and released to his command after the whole misunderstanding was sorted out. Charges of “creating public terror” will likely not be filed.
“A Fort Bragg soldier with an AR-15 assault-type rifle wearing a military ballistic panel carrier and carrying multiple rifle ammunition magazines caused a busy Cross Creek Mall to lock down Thursday night.
Bryan Scott Wolfinger, 25, was charged early this morning with going armed to the terror of the public. He told police he was preparing to have photographs taken with military equipment when 911 calls sent Fayetteville police to the mall.
Wolfinger was processed at the Cumberland County Detention Center and was released to his company commander and provost marshal at Fort Bragg.”
However the comments section, as usual, is where the real gold is buried.

The first week I lived here, I walked into a WalMart and there was a guy wearing a cowboy hat, jeans, and a pearl-handled revolver having tires put on his car. I knew I had moved to the right state.
