This is just unreal.
A MAGA hat wearing customer and his wife were minding their own business at Sam’s Club when another man flipped them off. He was upset at seeing the MAGA hat apparently.
That escalated into an argument in which the man, who’d made the obscene gesture, pulled out a .40 caliber Glock and pointed it at the customer. He reportedly said “it’s a good day to die b….”.
Watch the customer explain what happened:
Here’s more via WNKY:
A Tennessee man is charged with first-degree wanton endangerment after witnesses told police he pulled a gun on a man who was wearing Make America Great Again hat inside Sam’s Club.
The hat is associated with President Donald Trump’s campaign for office.
James Phillips, 57, of Cottontown, Tenn., is accused of pulling a gun on the man inside the store Saturday after making an obscene gesture with his finger, according to his arrest citation.
Phillips, who was wearing a veterans cap, told police he made the gesture at the man and a woman with him because of the MAGA hats they were wearing, according to his citation. The man then confronted Phillips inside the store and an argument began.
That man then made the same obscene gesture to Phillips, according to the citation. At that point, witnesses told police Phillips pointed a gun at the man. That portion of the incident could not be seen on video surveillance.
Police encountered Phillips and the couple after being called to the Sam’s Club parking lot where multiple witnesses had called the police to report a man pulling a gun on a couple, according to his citation.
Callers told police the man, later identified as Phillips, told the woman, “it’s a good day to die b…..”
In his rear right pocket, Phillips was carrying a concealed .40 caliber Glock with a bullet chambered. He had two extra magazines in his left cargo pocket, according to his arrest citation.
He holds a concealed carry permit from Tennessee which has a reciprocal agreement with Kentucky for concealed carry licenses.
Phillips is lodged in the Warren County Regional Jail.
The idiot flipped someone off, then threatened him with his glock and now he’s behind bars, all because he couldn’t control his temper when seeing a MAGA hat.
What. A. Moron.
They report that he holds a concealed carry permit. Not for long! I expect police will not only revoke his permit but also take all of his guns. And they should! All because he saw red and couldn’t control his temper when seeing a MAGA hat!
Now just to make another point. The customer wearing a MAGA hat is lucky to be alive. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t know that I would have confronted the dude like he did. I get that he’s probably protecting his wife’s honor and what not, but still, that could have easily turned out differently.
