Careless Street Performer Drops Concealed Gun During Show
The gun control debate is about to come front and center once again.
There isn’t much detail to this video (which popped up on Reddit), except we know some sort of street performer is doing his thing when a gun that he has on him that can’t be seen falls on the ground, surprising those in attendance.
It’d definitely unexpected and those who may yearn for a crackdown on gun laws will no doubt be appalled, especially since there’s a little boy mere feet away from where the piece falls. And, of course, some people will say what could have happened if the gun was not properly kept and it went off.
On the opposite end of the spectrum are those who support gun rights and may feel this is an isolated incident where nothing bad happened. These people will also point to their legal right to arms.
No matter what side of the fence you’re on the clip comes out at a timely moment. The nation was rattled Wednesday when Rep. Steve Scalise was shot during a baseball practice in Virginia, which may spur on renewed calls for stricter gun laws and spark more talk about the hotly-contested subject.
