Yes, It's True: Some People With Concealed Carry Permits Are Not Emotionally Stable

2/17/19 WKBO:
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- A Tennessee man is in jail after being accused of pulling a gun on a Sam's Club customer Saturday.

According to the police report, officers were called to Sam's Club due to a person with a gun.
According to the alleged victim Terry Pierce, a man pulled a gun on him because he was wearing a Make America Great Again (MAGA) hat.
"I have as much right to wear that hat and support my country and my president as he has not to," said Pierce.
The police report confirms that the suspect, identified as James Phillips, admitted to flipping off Pierce and Pierce's wife because of their hats.
Pierce tells 13 News that he was shopping with his wife when Phillips "Pulled a .40 caliber out and stuck it in my face, backed up and said, 'It's a good day for you to die.'"
Pierce went on to tell 13 News, "I said, 'Then pull the trigger. Put the gun down and fight me or pull the trigger. Whichever one you want.' And he backed up and he said it again, he said, 'It's a good day for you to die.'"
Pierce said the Phillips then took off. That's when Pierce followed him out into the parking lot.
"I went out the front of the store to confront him again and that's when I got him in his car. He couldn't leave because his mother was still in the store. And we were having a verbal altercation outside," said Pierce.
And yes, the article reports Phillips had a concealed carry license.  I am sure past tense is the case now and after conviction he will never be allowed gun possession again.  This Trump Derangement Syndrome is a serious illness; always carry in public; even if you aren't wearing a MAGA hat.   As one commenter observed:
The MAGA hat doesn't represent hatred and racism but it sure does trigger it.
