And with a heading like that and a photo like the one above, you’d be correct to assume that this man is a complete wack job. His name is Mike Malloy and he is a left-wing radical radio show host based in Atlanta.
From NewsBusters, you can tell quickly that Mr. Malloy may require a straight jacket:
I guess what I’ll do if I’m ever in that situation and I see one of these half-witted yahoos walking in with a weapon, high-caliber rifle like that, I’ll just put on a berserk act. I will just start screaming Gun! Gun! Gun! Watch out, everybody hit the deck! Guns! Guns! Everybody! And then dial 911 and I will say, shots fired, which will bring every g**-damned cop within 15 miles. And then the half-wits with the long guns are going to panic and they’re going to run out of the store and if that rifle isn’t shouldered properly, the cop is going to take a look at that and put a bullet right in their forehead.
No stranger to complaining about any law that gives firearm owners a little breathing room, he is determined to cause a scene. If something like this were ever actually done by him, he should be arrested immediately.
Bearing Arms points out that what Malloy is proposing is very similar to “SWATing”. When someone pulls a SWATing, they make a phone call to the police and say that something has happened at a certain location, typically a murder, and that the perpetrator is possibly still there and armed. This creates a response from police forces to said location, and they are anticipating a possible encounter with someone who has already committed a murder.
However, we can rest assured that we will probably not see any ‘copy-cat’ scenarios from any of Malloy’s 14 listeners based on what he’s said on his radio station. Half of them are probably asleep while listening because they accidentally left the radio on, and the other half are most certainly not capable of putting together any type of plan.
