Florida Woman Proves Second Amendment Rights Needed to Free Ourselves From Walmart's Tyranny

Posted By on Wed, Mar 6, 2013 at 11:00 AM

Honestly, liberals don't know what they're doing, what with trying to limit citizens' access to concealed weapons permits and trying to take away guns from people who obviously shouldn't own them.

This Florida woman, however, knows what's up. Mary Frances Alday, 61, was attempting to use an internet coupon to take a dollar off of her purchase at Walmart, as is her right as an American consumer. But a fascist assisstant manager at Walmart, ignoring the rights of the people, told her that the company has a policy of rejecting the internet coupons of hard-working, blue-collar Americans.

As you might understand, this agitated Ms. Alday, who (after what was surely a misunderstanding involving supposedly-heard curse words and accidental bumping with a shopping cart) was forcibly removed from the store for attempting to assert her rights. So she took them into her own hands.

From the Smoking Gun, reporting from a Wakulla County Sheriff's Office report:

As several Walmart employees watched from the store’s entrance, Alday appeared outside her car “waving the gun in the holster,” reported investigators. Alday then removed the weapon—a loaded Smith & Wesson .38 Special—from the holster and pointed it “at all the store employees and stated ‘I have something for Y’all.’” The Walmart workers “retreated back inside the building due to being in fear for their lives.”

Alday, who fled the Walmart parking lot in a 2011 Ford Escape, was subsequently pulled over by a sheriff’s deputy who asked if there was a firearm in the SUV. “Yes, I have a concealed weapons permit, and you are not taking my gun.” Asked about the gun’s location, Alday replied, “You’re not taking my gun.”

Alday twice refused the deputy’s request to exit the auto, and was tasered when she “reached over the console for something in the passenger seat.” Alday was then dragged from the car and handcuffed. The gun was found in the vehicle’s center console.

For the crime of being an American hero, fighting for the right to use a coupon worth one dollar (sadly devalued thanks to the terrible decisions of this fascist government — THANKS, OBAMA), Alday was charged with four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and a count of battery.

This, of course, strikes me as a serious miscarriage of justice. I mean, if the Second Amendment isn't intended for us to defend our rights against massive organizations that are only looking to make a buck off of good, hard-working Americans, what's the point?
