Man Uses Rifle to Shoot Sign Opposing NC Gay Marriage Ban: VIDEO


Says the gun owner in the video: "Right now there's this amendment trying to be passed, Amendment One. It's gonna state that marriage is between a man and a woman, which is how it ought to be. Somebody thought it'd be a good idea to put this sign near my house. They oughta know not to put stuff like that near my house."

He then proceeds to shoot it.

  1. That's a shotgun, not a rifle.

  2. If only it had ended with him putting the
    end of the rifle to his temple and squeezing
    off one last shot.

  4. Mouth-breather uses an act of violence to show opponents "how we deal" with those who don't like bigotry, and the first comment quibbles with the choice of "rifle" over "shotgun?"

    Miss the point much?

  5. This coming from a guy who corn holed some sheep on his daddy's farm when he was a young'in

  6. The truth of the matter is, he didn't shoot the sign down. It stood up against his puerile rant. He had to walk over to the sign, slightly out of breath, as it is probably a little further than he usually walks, and lays the sign down.
    And when you think about it, did someone put the sign that far from the street, or did he put it there?
    Let's hope his sister runs faster than he does, otherwise, he'll procreate.

  7. Generally speaking, TV, most quibblers rarely get the point.

  10. Too bad the bullet didn't ricochet and hit him in his urine-colored glasses.

  12. "Study finds that men who vehemently oppose homeosexuality are likely themselves gay."

  13. He pulled the video off YouTube. So he's both a git and a coward.

  14. @Acorlando: What study are you referring too?

  17. He's hardly a man...hiding behind that big ole gun of his.

  18. @Jack: One example was a University of Georgia study. It categorized men who self-identified as "straight" according to their degree of comfort or homophobia around gay men.
    Their penises were hooked up to a measuring device while they were shown different types of porn.
    The gay-friendly guys didn't have a penile response to man-on-man porn, while the homophobes' penises went "schwing!!" when they saw that same gay porn. The more anti-gay they were, the harder their penises got watching gay porn.

    What could he elaborated from such studies is that straight people have no reason whatsoever to fear gay people or to obsess over what gay people do in their relationships unless they are projecting the fear that they have of their own innate feelings.

  19. @Jack, , for one.

  20. Typical for North Carolina. Marry your first cousin - not a problem. Shoot signs on your neighbour's property - not a problem. Smoke anywhere, anytime - not a problem. Give people the opportunity to marry the person of their choice - them's fighting words.

  21. Even in NC surely firing his shotgun like that in a public place is illegal? Arrest the moron already!!

  22. Another gool ole Southern boy....they either shot it, stuff it or marry it. Bet there aren't too many branchs on his family tree.

  23. Over at Joe My God they're re-posting the clip every time Goober takes it down, and the police have been alerted (and hopefully will investigate). They say it is illegal to discharge a firearm onto property where there is a home or business.

  24. He's fugly.

  25. This video is a total stupid setup and a crock. Note the dirt berm behind the sign for a backstop. It strongly suggests that sign was (stolen?) and placed there by the shooter (Forrest?).
