Mask Issue Escalates at Local Hardware Store

Arnold, CA...From Sgt. Greg Stark at the Calaveras Sheriff's Office.."Today at 12:30pm an Ace hardware, Arnold, employee asked customer to wear a mask and provided one. Customer took it walked around then threw the mask down at the register when asked again to put it on. Said "I don't have to. Come outside I will whup your ass." Employee followed subject outside and subject had an open carry firearm on his thigh. He placed his hand on it like he was going to pull it out but did not pull the weapon out. Other subjects were around at the time."

        Who said anything about this guy supporting Trump? I didn't read anything about that! Oh it must me Tronald Reagan on here again huh? Go figure! When a store asks someone to wear a mask and even GIVE him one that person should put on that mask. Also by law, it's a stores right to refuse servide to someone and to literally 86 him/her from the store. If that person decides to come back in the same store can charge him/her for trespassing! End of story! thank you

Why don't you just move back to your property in North Oakland/Berkeley or wherever and sell your weed down there? We all know you're running a "clandestine cartel!" Just keep it up and you'll get caught. You may even have the Covid 19 and not even realize it!

            The only ones being divisive are the dems/ left. Just read who makes the nastiness comments. They're for buring the cities, support open borders, giving illegals (get it ILLEGALS) free everything, defunding law enforcement (more people will carry to defend their lives and property) As a independent I dont know how anyone in their right mind would vote democratic.

              No law. Really? There is a state mandate. What does it take for people like you to wear a mask to protect others? You easily can be asymptomatic, have no clue what's happening in your body and breath drops and aerosol on your family, neighbor, friends. Think about it. Then wear a mask. Those of us who are very vulnerable to this virus, who will end up in ICU if we get it, thank you.

            Your full of *bleep*, it isn't Trump pushing it's idiots like Piglosi and *bleep*mer and of course dumb fugks like you. If masks are so effective why are they letting all your relatives out of jail instead of giving them masks? Fugging moron liberals will be the downfall of the USA and it's a shame they are too stupid to see the real issues. Do some research if you know how and you will see the light. And Black lives matter only to fools.

    Politics. Its insane. The dems/left's have made this mask wearing a symbol. If you ever watch these mask wearers its gross. Constantly touching their masks than touching whatever they shopping for,etc. Ask any doctor, masks not meant for wearing all day. They change theirs out every 1/2 to hour the germs being passed around by people wearing masks is worst than this flu. How do you except to have any immune system if you're suppressing it🤔

        I stand corrected, and thank you for that information. However, I can not find any counties that have allowed it in a search, do you know of any?

        I did find this information saying that the state of California has no procedure or forms for Sheriffs to issue open carry, so there is no open carry.

So this insane “pu$$y” was willing to throw away his life over a wearing a mask for 5 min! Would he react the same to “no shirt, shoes, no business?” Of course not! He’s let this political hijacking of a health issue drive me to insanity! It all starts with the message Trump gives and then trickles down to the idiotic right wingers in political positions. Unfortunately, America has shown we are not adult enough to do the right things without being forced to. Our elected officials have no choice but to force things like wearing a mask and it’s sad!

Huge problem , what if the man baby with the open carry pulled , hard to defuse that situation in a parking lot, and there’s a big chance a bystander could be shot and /or killed.
The man baby should be immediately jailed , gun rights gone and 3 years in a CA state prison ..
He risked a lot of lives over nothing there should be consequences.
also CCW Especially in this county is a joke , I know quite a few people who have it and none of them practice rangework or any drills . Many are not even remotely competent with their carry firearm. In a situation like this they would merely be a Liability.
Yet many of them especially the older males would probably Pull and end up getting themselves or a bystander killed .

      You’re assuming .
      I’m stating my opinion. Many who have CCW are lax and irresponsible and carry simply because they are afraid and think that the power a firearm gives them will make them less afraid.
      In reality you have situations like the one in the parking lot of ace in Arnold. Sloppy emotional dramatics with a sidearm involved ... often leads to shots fired indiscriminately.

      I purchase ammo 3-4 times a years with the new laws in CA. Usually buy at least 1-2 firearms a year ( sometimes locally sometimes in rancho at sportsman’s warehouse.)
      I shoot fairly frequently at my house and have some dynamic drills and ranges set up .
      Enjoy hunting in D6 and would like to get more active with waterfowl.

      Definitely do not support the NRA in any way shape or form.
      And definitely don’t support CCW unless there is proper training ( including de -escalation And conflict resolution using verbal techniques )
      - mental and physical health checks should be mandatory for CCW as well.

          I’m just a regular citizen , and pointed out I’m not pro CCW but want stricter concealed laws and more background processing .
          Mainly so you don’t have unstable people escalating minor conflicts with firearms.
          I only bring up hunting and firearm talk Because above poster was skeptical I had any experience with CCW and firearm issues in CA..
          I could care less about arguing with low effort people so I’ll just leave you to your business.

Store Rules
Posted on: 2020-08-13 07:43:45   By: Anonymous
 
Any store can have their own rules for service. If a store wants to require shoes, shirts and masks that is their right.
The store employee should not have followed the irate customer "with a gun on his thigh" out of the store. Handing the customer a mask was very courteous.
Wearing a mask does not justify someone pulling a gun on an employee! Let's get real.
Where was the Sheriff in this? Open carrying in California is not legal unless you are a Deputy or Policeman or at your own house or business.

So, we're now anywhere America. Waiting for our sheriff to make a statement, especially as he's been one not in support of the wearing of masks. I can already write the intro, "Despite our own opinions about the wearing of masks as law-abiding Americans, we take the rules to carry weapons... blah, blah, blah." Another Trumpian unwilling to take a stand to keep us healthy and perhaps even work toward unification.

    What I don't understand is why this person was not arrested. Explain that for me please Mr. Sheriff. Open carry IS illegal, violation #1. Placing his hand on that weapon as if to draw is either a threat or incitement to violence, violation #2. Forget the masks, our sheriff is not protecting our community nor enforcing the most basic laws to avoid violence.

              2.GOP does it’s job and super cracks down on offenders

              Then, we just need all of the gun types to be able to pass HS physics test. We should fund education as needed for this, it will help keep us competitive.
