And you post that. You are despicable.

Wisconsin is probably an open carry state. The cops won't do anything.

Apart from the arrest for murder I expect them to do very little.

He's 17. Underage. Even in Wisconsin you have to be 18 to walk around like Rambo.

Even though he seems to have been walking around without being challenged by them.

On Boiler I would agree. He's just a troll. Paulry runs like a clockwork rat when wound up - people are just laughing at him. Well I am anyway. But the garbage he posts is often vile and while he may just be a dupe some stuff needs answering because otherwise the unspeakable feel emboldened by apparent impunity and the unwary might be taken in.

Seems it's possible he wasn't actually breaking the law according to one lawyer.

"could carry the assault-style rifle, according to John Monroe, a lawyer who specializes in gun rights cases. While state law seems to make clear that anyone under 18 who "goes armed" with any deadly weapon is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor, the statute seems to carve out an exception for most rifles and shotguns."

That seems crazy a 17 year old can just carry a rifle or shot gun, assuming that lawyer is correct, but even if was not legal its only a Class A misdemeanor.

Don't feed the trolls does not work. There is always someone new, someone who doesn't know the troll, who will respond and there are enough to keep the troll going.

Far better that the site rules are applied and trolling posts and eventually the trolls are removed.

Yes, it's crazy.

It's also crazy that there are armed vigilantes on the street in a small Wisconsin town that is mostly just home to outlet malls. It's also crazy that unarmed people are regularly murdered by police and that there are riots on the streets of one of the wealthiest countries in the world, with the President egging it all on.

Old laws for hunting in rural areas.

In Florida you can't open carry, unless you are fishing, so when people march with guns they also carry fishing rods.

Indeed it is. All very crazy, beyond crazy at this point and into pure insanity.

And all before even turning 18 and becoming an adult, he was not on a good path in life, and now he may end up prison for the rest of his life.

This is the most concerning one OPERATE FIREARM WHILE INTOXICATED, shows he doesn't take gun safety seriously at all.
