He became the Rosa Parks of the national CCW movement,

after being brought up on charges for illegal possession, felonious harming of sainted jackholes,

unlawful self-preservation, unapproved removal of state-sanctified scum,etc.

The most effed up part of this story, is 38 other people were mugged and beaten

half to death in NYC that month, and none of those accounts even made

the media blink, as long as the law-abiding victims bent over and took it

right up the pahookie...

I lived in NYC at the time. I know the story. Below is the Wikipedia link. I think it’s right.
