Carytown, Virginia residents and shoppers are extremely bothered by a small mob of ammosexuals parading through the streets with their pieces on full display. In July, Jason Spitzer and his merry band of public blasturbators began causing such concern that people have grown increasingly more concerned with the safety of the area–so much so, that a boycott of the shopping area has been threatened if open carriers continue to wave their “rights” around in people’s faces.
“A few weeks ago, they were standing in front of our store, talking to people about their cause and my customers were actually afraid to leave the store because they have small children and didn’t know exactly what their cause was,” said Sheri Doyle, a Carytown shop owner.
“I understand they are trying to exercise their right but to do it in a public place is trying to create fear for the public,” shopper Shanti Coleman said.
“A few customers have complained in the store just mentioning, ‘hey you seen those guys out there?'” Spencer Beasley, another shop owner, said.
The popularity of open carry in the area is evident: Jason Spitzer invited nearly 300 people to a recent event, but said he “don’t know why” only he and a fellow organizer, Reggie Bowles, showed up to “spread Constitutional awareness.”
Lack of interest and open opposition to their actions has not dissuaded the duo, who occasionally manage a mid-single-digits crowd at their freedom walks. “I always see people want to down firearms, but no one wants to be advocate for them,” Bowles said. He added that their goal is not to cause people to become uncomfortable when a couple of unstable-looking individuals wanders around with weaponry. “Try to tell them I don’t want to strike fear in them, it’s just a means of self protection,” he said of his motivations.
Bowles said that his actions have led to plenty of calls to the police, but he wishes people would just stop doing that. “I’ve been in a couple of stores where they ask me to leave it outside, I respect their wishes,” Bowles said.
The group plans another “walk” on Saturday at 11 a.m.
