Hubert Hoffman is throwing a picnic to celebrate the joys of carrying firearms in public, and he’s inviting all his friends:
Hubert Hoffman says he’s a law abiding citizen of Onalaska and he says he’s following the law when he wears his loaded pistol while he mows his lawn.
“It appears to be that there is this stigma attached with firearms that everybody is somehow afraid of them.”
A recent memo released by J.B. Van Hollen reminds local law enforcement that it’s legal for people to openly carry a firearm. Because of that memo, Hoffman is throwing an Open Carry picnic at Marvin Garden Park in Onalaska.
His goal is “to educate the public that firearms owners are not a danger to the general public.”
Hoffman says he’s bringing food for 300 and hopes people attending bring their guns. He’s also pushing for lawmakers to pass a state carry and conceal law.
I’m thinking Hubert Hoffman might want to make a little extra food, because he might have a few extra guests at his picnic.
