"Beaumont police were called to Golden Triangle Tactical Saturday morning after complaints that a man dressed as a banana was seen holding an AK-47 outside the store near Eastex Freeway and Highway 105.
Store owner, Derek Poe, tells 12News Saturday is the store's grand opening after moving locations from Parkdale Mall.

Poe says the man in the banana suit was holding an AK-47 across his back with the barrel pointing down and holding a sign with an arrow pointing toward the store. He said this idea was to attract customers to the store.

Beaumont police say officers temporarily detained the 18-year-old and found he had the rifle with a drum magazine attached with at least a 50-round capacity."

I would dearly love to see cops giving chase on foot to a banana.  Who would slip on the skin first?

Why was this kid packing so much heat? Was he concerned that people might jump him and try to bake him into a giant loaf of banana bread?

Well, article didn't say the gun was actually loaded. And the whole thing just makes me laugh. I have to imagine that could be sort of a traffic hazard- I would probably rubber neck and think "WTF? Was that a banana with a gun?".

Your country's gun laws are really too lenient.

Quote

Officers temporarily detained the 18-year-old and found he had the rifle with a drum magazine attached with at least a 50-round capacity. His gun was seized and he was later charged with disorderly conduct.

In my country, if you were to do this, you would get at least 12 strokes of the whip and at least 10 years in prison. We got no gun violence here.
