'Gun Violence Prevention Activist' Walks into FL Gun Shop, Asks for Something That Will Kill 200 People

Here’s one for the Florida Man files. Fortunately, the only thing this idiot managed to hurt was his own feelings.

WPTV in West Palm Beach:

Port St. Lucie police are asking the public to help identify a man who asked a Walmart clerk about buying a weapon that can kill a large number of people…

“Can you sell me anything (or a gun) that would kill 200 people?” the man asked.

The clerk replied, “That isn’t funny,” and the man responded, “I know,” and asked again if they could sell him anything that would kill 200 people.

The man has now been identified as Philip Attey of Port St. Lucie. Here he is explaining his (for lack of a better word) reasoning:

In time-honored liberal fashion, this genius ended up proving the exact opposite of what he intended to prove. His point was supposed to be that people planning a mass-murder can just walk into a gun shop and get what they want. But instead, what happened when he told the clerk he wanted to kill a bunch of people? He got a scolding from the clerk, and then a visit from the cops. His threat was taken seriously. And now the whole world knows what an idiot he is.

Attey says he wanted Walmart to “wake up and think about their role in the gun violence toxic climate that we have.” And now he’s shown their role: Helping to stop potential threats, like the one he made, from being carried out. He did exactly the wrong thing, and they did exactly the right thing.

This kind of crap doesn’t help, libs. You have a right to be angry, but you need to stop and consider what the hell you’re doing. Think. Given enough practice, you might even start to get good at it.
