Yesterday, Georgia’s “guns everywhere” bill went into effect. What does “guns everywhere” mean? It means that Georgia residents with carry permits can pretty much take their guns, well, EVERYWHERE. That means bars, churches, school zones, government buildings. You name it! Sounds awesome! It’s like a statewide game of Grand Theft Auto! A couple of eager beavers were anxious to test out the new bill, and that meant pulling their guns on each other after a misunderstanding at a convenience store. Oh, this sounds like it’ll end well. Basically, one dude was in the store, just shopping with a gun on his hip, when another badass gun dude entered the store, also sporting a gun on his hip. Dude #1 got a little pissy, I guess because he liked being “the gun guy” in the convenience store and didn’t want to share the spotlight, so he approached Dude #2 and asked to see his permits.

According to the Daily Times, the first man, Ronald Williams, approached the second man in the store and demanded to see his identification and firearms license. Williams also pulled his gun from his holster, without pointing it at the second man. The second man responded by saying that he was not obligated to show any permits or identification — then he paid for his purchase, left the store, and called the police.
Because Williams pulled his gun, he got a disorderly conduct charge, but I would’ve charged him with being a big pain in the ass who doesn’t know how to mind his own business. We’re all just trying to live our lives, going about our daily lives brandishing guns on our hips, dude. Just because you’ve got a gun on your hip, it doesn’t make you a cop. Chill out. Good, I’m glad we got that straightened out. Now, I’ll be over here using my gun to mix my iced coffee.
