    WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?! Just use Iron Man and SHIELD agents in suits and ties. Why oh why did they feel the need to use people with guns and in tactical gear?

    Yeah, that is probably the top of the list of bad ideas.

    They left out the part where the woman on the far left of the photo was arrested for filling that case with Sno Caps.

    I can't believe during the alleged months of planning for this that nobody objected to the use of realistic looking military actors with realistic looking weapons. The average person would probably be too busy shitting their pants instead of looking to see if there was a SHIELD logo on the uniform, especially if those actors were walking around separate from the more obviously recognizable characters. I'm also not sure the average person knows the significance of a red tip on a weapon.

    That being said, though...

    John Molock is a retired Army war veteran and suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder. He told ABC 17 News this most recent trip to the movies triggered memories he never wanted to relive.

    "We had just finished watching Iron Man 3," said Morlock. "We're just getting into the car when I spotted a man in full assault gear, carrying what appeared to be a modified M-4 and 9 mm on his side."


    Fuck you, John Molock. You just watched a movie where I can only assume that those military characters were shooting their military guns at things. But in the parking lot after the movie, your keen military eyes picked out the type of weaponry but didn't notice the fucking Airsoft tips? If your PTSD is really so bad, how about you don't watch the shoot 'em up movies in the first place?


    PS - It's good to see Liddy isn't fired.

    If a citizen with a ccw permit would have capped the guy... you'd have a dead actor and the citizen would be justified if he thought some shit was about to go down.

    but if the actor was carrying iced tea and skittles, cosplayers the world over would be up in arms, if they left their parents' basements.

    There are some limits on that whole "I thought shit's about to go down" defense. For instance, if the guy is holding a gun with an orange tip, the defense is not gonna fly. If everybody's laughing and clapping, again: that defense is not gonna fly.

    In Israel when you go on school field trips you also have armed security go with you (like if you're out hiking in the desert or whatever). Back when I was a kid, it was often parents who had gun licenses (not sure if that's still common or not). So there was this case where the guides who were leading a class decided to play a prank and put on terrorist headscarves and jumped out from behind a rock and one of them got plugged between the eyes. Put an end to those kinds of pranks.

    I don't see what the big deal is.

    If you see a guy with a fake looking gun standing next to Iron Man are you really going to think that Him and Iron Man are going to shoot up the place?

    Frank: Yes. Well, when I see 5 weirdos dressed in togas stabbing a guy in the middle of the park in full view of 100 people, I shoot the bastards. That's my policy.
    Mayor: That was a Shakespeare in the Park production of Julius Caesar, you moron! You killed 5 actors! Good ones!

    I thought this at first, but then I thought to myself: Where were the actors hanging out before the movie started? Were they walking around inside the theater in costume? Somehow I have the feeling that people who are stupid enough to think this was a good idea are also too stupid to do it discretely and properly.

    Bingo. One of these retards goes wandering across the parking lot dressed up like that, no obvious movie costumes in sight, and he's likely to cause a bit of concern.
