OK, we’ll say it again: we usually don’t do posts on random people on Twitter, but seeing as this guy felt obligated to post a photo of a perfect stranger on social media, we’re guessing he won’t mind. We’re guessing Kevin is from the U.K. from his use of “bell end” as an insult — we’ll let you figure out the American translation for yourselves.
Sat waiting for Old Faithful the Yellowstone geyser to blow. Lots of families, kids and people having a good time. Then I spot this bellend in front of me with a revolver strapped to his side. Is there really any need? Most people I've met in the US want gun control. #guncontrol pic.twitter.com/0tHGnN2bwF

First, that’s not a revolver, obviously. Second, you have no idea if there’s a need — why not ask him? Third, if “most people” you’ve met in the U.S. want gun control, obviously we should ban guns, and pointy knives, hammers, garden utensils, and rusty spoons. Let the ratio begin.
Did he use his weapon to threaten you or anyone else that you saw? Or was he just sitting there waiting for Old Faithful to blow like you and all of the others there. I'm 73 and sometimes there is a need out here in the west. Coyotes (2 and 4 legged) javelina, and of course… pic.twitter.com/vz3bfYHjzE

Not trying to tell you guys how to think or what to say. But when you make it about hunting and recreation, you change the tone of everything. He has every right to carry that piece for whatever reason he wants to do. No need to soften it by talking about animals.

Maybe you would rather take the chance of your government turning on you, like in Hong Kong today…https://t.co/Sh7p9K4ULJ

Most people in America got here because their ancestors wanted to get AWAY from Euro=peon statism. We welcome visitors but recommend they mind their own damned business. Thanks, & come again!

We were tired of being subjects and wanted to become citizens of something greater. I’ll take dangerous freedom over safe slavery any day, all day!

1. He has the Constitutional right to carry. 2. I have no problem with it.
— Rockman 👻 (@rockman_2) July 21, 2019
If he has a permit to carry, then it's none of your business. You know, the 2nd amendment and all that jazz.

Just here for the absolutely incredible ratio! PS Congrats on meeting an American in the wild. Next time, say hello!

I saw someone write something inaccurate in a foreign land while wetting himself. Is there a need for his freedom of speech? Most people I’ve met want ten-cent nachos.

We should never allow people who don’t even know the difference between a pistol and a revolver debate gun laws. Like ever.
— Mandie (@PhreshTake) July 22, 2019
It’s a fully semi automatic assault revolver too! I can’t wait till we go door to door and take away these murderous self defense tools from these painfully patriotic Trumpsters! They’ll never know what’s coming either! #OrangeManBad #kek

They missed the knife in his back pocket.
— Joe Buck (@JosephBuck321) July 22, 2019
The bobbies certainly would have confiscated that.
In case someone was kidnapping a child, or raping someone, or something of the sort, and no police around, it's good to know a fellow citizen is prepared to come to the rescue.

Seeing a gun must be alarming to someone coming from somewhere as free of violent crime as, say, London. All the criminals have thrown their knives in the handy knife disposal bins posted around the city.
Does he have revolver mags to go with that revolver?
— Madame America 🇺🇸 (@MadameAmerica) July 22, 2019
That's one of those non-revolving revolvers. Very collectible.

It’s pretty controlled in that SERPA holster.
Scared of a holstered firearm on the hip of a law abiding citizen?

You should have felt safer. Bad guys don't wear guns out in the open where you can see them. That's a clear indication of a good guy. Someone who isn't afraid to answer a cops questions if asked.

To: Americans here for the ratio party
Kevin Hughes is an Aston Villa fan, so he’s British, like me. His use of “Europe” is meant to quickly convey he’s anti-Brexit. He’s a fatuous, narrow-minded & possibly syphilitic tourist who missed the memo on traveling broadening your mind

The realization that New York, Los Angeles, and Orlando aren’t an accurate representation of America can come as quite a shock.

he shouldn't visit the Grand Canyon either. Arizona is open carry also, as is Utah.

You are so right, only the bad guys should have the guns!
No one should have a concealed to carry license because to have that you need a background check and training.
Yes, just the bad guy.
When seconds count, the police are minutes away!

You haven’t met the right people. Gun ownership is a fundamental right.

I'd imagine your polling sample is a little small & biased.
Defensive gun uses heavily outnumber gun homicides.
Almost no one wants restrictions on handguns.
Venezuelan & Chinese Gov'ts trampling their citizens recently is good evidence of a need outside of crime prevention.

Because firearms are like umbrellas — you don't need them until you do, and then you need them BADLY.
— OregonMuse (@OregonMuse) July 22, 2019
You were in Wyoming. Things are a little different there. If you went to a small town, you would see pick up trucks parked . With loaded guns on their gun racks , with their windows open. And a dog riding in the back. One more thing, very little if any crime.

Then I spot Swalwell in front of me with a mini-nuke strapped to his side. Is there really any need? pic.twitter.com/vCbaLI4BZi
