WATCH: NC Bigot Films Himself Shooting “No On Amendment One” Sign

In the great state of North Carolina, they don’t like things they can’t shoot, eat or fuck. So redneck bigot Alex here decided the best way to wrap his head around a neighbor’s “Vote Against Amendment One” sign was by pumping some lead through it with a shotgun. He also had the brilliant idea to get a buddy to film him doing it and post it on YouTube under the heading “A discussion on North Carolina Amendment One .” We can only hope Alex has some unfortunate accident soon while cleaning his gun. (What, too much?)

Amendment One, which specifies marriage as between one man and one woman, goes to the ballot box on May 8.

      I hope he shot his gun within the city/town limits. In most places in the U.S. it is illegal to do so. Need to call in the cops.

      Even if he did not shoot his gun within the city/town limits, when did it become legal to shoot at anything on another person’s property?

      I certainly hope that the person who is the owner of the sign, presses legal charges against this a**hole.

      The next video I would very much enjoy, is the shot-gun owner being hauled off to jail with his hands cuffed behind his back.

      NC ! Again. Such a strange relationship Queerty has with that state. If this guy was shooting at Irish-American boys from New York and Boston the Queerties would be dancing and prancing in support.

      LOL. It’s so funny that this guy feels THAT threatened by us he has to shoot a sign. Take the gun away and he’s nothing more than a scaredy-cat sissy.

      He said the sign was put up near his house, not that it was put up on someone else’s property.

      Unless he’s really stupid, he probably got someone to give him the sign, and put it up on his own property, so shooting it would be legal – otherwise the video could be used as evidence against him. That is, if he actually did use a gun.

      They actually don’t show him shooting the gun – there’s a sound effect, the sign
      swings back and forth, but there are lots of ways of staging that without actually shooting a gun. The sign also seems to be by a compost pile, so there was something to absorb the bullets if a gun was used, and there was not a nearby road in sight, making it an odd place to put a sign. Whatever happened, I’m not buying his story.

      Too much would be the “unfortunate accident” being his wife shooting him after walking in on him “cleaning” someone else’s “gun.”

      The sign is in front of a backstop. Its fairly obvious that its been placed there to be shot at. You see a car go by in the start of the video making it more likely their shooting at the rear of the property so most likely the sign was stolen. The laws vary greatly depending on where you live if you can or can’t shoot. Where I live you are allowed to use a firearm in city limits as long as an adequate backstop is present and its not in the direction of any population (which is kinda hard to do). Looks like woods behind him so they might be ok in that. Is he an intolerant redneck? Appears so. But what else is new. Not sure why this is news worthy.

      What would these poor southern bigots do without their guns. As if shooting a sign is going to effect the outcome of anything. No doubt if anything he reflects what generations of inbreeding leads to.

      I dated someone there for awhile.Also my ex wife was from there.
      You have NO idea just how backward thinking these people really are!
      I kid you not, I was literally chased by rednecks in pickup trucks bc my ex wife’s
      family couldn’t grasp that she was with a woman!
      They had shot guns and a boatload of rednecks in the bed of the truck
      searching for me! Omg I could write a (hilarious now) book on that day!
      I can’t imagine chasing someone down with a gun just bc of someone they love.
      They literally kidnapped her and the kids and I had to out smart them
      (which wasn’t hard) and it was in their own back yards within their own communitiy to retrieve
      my wife and kids and get them back home to Austin,Tx
      Ha! Dumbbasses!
      So seeing paw paw shooting a sign isn’t surprising!
      I have a lot of sympathy for my sisters and brothers living in that state!

      Wow. I’m REALLY sick of all the digs against NC that commenters put up. I am from the town where this guy is, and we aren’t all that crazy. I go to rural parts of the state without a problem all the time. Also, the majority of North Carolinians live in the big cities, 6 out of 7 of which are majority minority. We have a good chance of defeating Amendment 1. Did your states defeat it? Hm. None yet.

      North Carolina does have a lot going for it, and, I believe, a better chance of defeating this than most of its neighbors would today if they didn’t already have such amendments. One day, too far but not very far in the future, gay marriage will be legal nationwide, and y’all have a chance to ensure that, when it’s ceased to be controversial, your state can brag that it’s the only one in the region *never* to have had one.

      But it’s gone the other way too often and too consistently to work up full, exuberant optimism. And as for the video… it’s a sad reminder, especially for those of us IN the South, of what some of of our neighbors are like, and also yet another frustrating example of that being the face our region shows the world when it’s not really representative at all.

      The article at http://www.wsoctv.com/news/news/local/teen-shoots-amendment-1-sign-youtube-video-gets-at/nNN7S/ states that they thought the “culprit”, a 17 year old kid, stole the sign, and cited him for “injury to property”. They’ll have to prove it. Unless there is some physical evidence (e.g., dirt on the sign that can be chemically shown to be from a location where a sign was stolen), they’ll have a hell of a time proving it – people give out campaign signs so the signs will be posted around town. Once they give it to you, it is yours. If you want to tear it up, you have a legal right to do that. This kid simply decided to make a silly video with it. It’s not like he promised to return it.

      If they try to use the you-tube video as evidence of the sign being stolen, a competent defense lawyer will claim that the defendant was given the sign and simply used it to make what (at the age of 17) he thought would be a funny video, and the narration was simply made up to sound outrageous. I.e., a failed attempt at a 2 minute screen play at the tender age of 17 is not a crime. Also, the lawyer will point out that while signs are stolen on occasion, signs are also given out on occasion. Just because a sign was stolen doesn’t mean the state can pick some random person who did something weird with a sign he obtained legally and frame that person.
