In a nutshell, independent videographer and conservative gadfly, Mike Strickland, attends a protest, is surrounded and threatened by thugs, pulls a firearm - which he is legally carrying - and winds up being cited for a "menacing" misdemeanor; however, through an act of legal prestidigitation, the misdemeanor charge suddenly balloons into multiple felony charges, and the guy is now potentially facing fifty years in prison.

Update: And let's not forget California. Gun owners there are stocking up in advance of the implementation of Prop 63, the state's mind-bogglingly stupid new law that requires background checks on ammo purchases.

In the two months since 2016’s General Election, traffic from California is up 50% toWideners.com. Nationwide traffic to the site has remained relatively static for the same period.“There’s been a massive influx of California hunters and sport shooters who are stocking up in the wake of California’s new laws, no doubt about it.” Anne Taylor of Widener’s said. “There’s not just increased interest, it’s clear the gun owners who are buying are buying in bulk. We’ve seen our average order weight go up in the past couple months.”
