“It was foolish. I didn’t give it believed.” These words rolled off the tongue of 20-year-old Dmitriy Andreychenko, the guy who donned a tactical vest and carried a braced AR pistol into a Springfield, Missouri Walmart just days soon after the El Paso Walmart shooting.
He faces a litany of charges, and worst-case situation, he could be deported if convicted.
From KY3 Television:
It set off panic amongst some shoppers, and led to Andreychenko getting held at gunpoint and arrested. He is charged with producing a terrorist threat.
“Praise God that he (the man who held Andreychenko at gunpoint) was educated and that he was capable to see that I wasn’t threatening everyone and didn’t shoot me, so praise God for that,” Andreychenko stated.
Andreychenko tells KY3 News he now sees his selection was poor timing, offered the other two mass shootings in current days, but otherwise does not regret what he did.
“It was foolish, I didn’t give it believed. It was so innocent that I didn’t believe this would come about.”
Right here is the interview.
He didn’t believe.
As well normally this is the difficulty with some who open carry their lengthy guns in public. Although The Individuals of the Gun may possibly not be alarmed at the sight of a man or lady wearing a tactical vest and carrying a lengthy gun, the typical John or Jane Doe absolutely will be. Especially suitable soon after a higher profile spree shooting.
Sadly, open carrying lengthy guns ends up setting back the trigger of gun rights, not advancing it.
