Default opinion on waht would happen?

A scenario in Lubbock, Texas.

I have a shirt that says from top to bottom:

GOD
GUNS
TRUMP

In your opinion, what do you think would happen if I wore this shirt to say, the Mall, Wally World or anywhere in Lubbock, a very conservative city but still with a good amount of Socialists, Demos and college kids (not so much during the summer).

I have not worn it yet, but when I do, I will for sure be carrying!

Just wondering your thoughts on the issue.

I ignore people who make rude comments to me and go on about my business. I don't show my cards(not referring to gun but its there as well). If they somehow get some machismo from being ignored and take it any further then they will soon find out that was a mistake. My wife hates when I ignore others. She's always looking for a confrontation from the get go....which is a horrible way to go through life. But then again she gets spit on and named called on a daily basis at work so its probably just instinct for her at this point.

I also plan on putting a Trump sticker on my truck here soon

I'm from Lubbock and WEAR IT!

Before Trump was elected, I wore a Trump t-shirt to Ruidoso on vacation. We got a lot of LOOKS at the Inn of the Mountain Gods and many frowns. BUT, we also had a LOT of folks come up and say they loved the shirt. I was NOT armed and NOT in fear and I'm an ole' fart....6'3", 275 pounds so SCREW 'EM!!

Why even worry about it....Do it!

I seriously doubt anything will happen. I could see if you wore it say EAST of University or on campus or surrounding areas. But southwest Lubbock, I’d be shocked if anything happened and not all that shocked if you got a high five

Just so we're clear,.....
You are going to a store, wearing a shirt you think will provoke an encounter in which you are arming yourself in preparation for, and announcing this intention on a Internet web forum.... ?

Not sure what will happen, but any defense you had is capital F ****ed..

Nothing will happen.

To the entire board, other than you OP and no offense meant, how many of you actually wear shirts with political or social statements on them? Or for that matter, any statement at all? I only ask because I haven't worn a shirt with any words on it (other than maybe a company name or logo) in the last 20 years. I don't know that I remember any of my friends ever wearing a "message shirt." Maybe I am the outlier.

That was a grown man against a child. A child who, if his buddy is any indication of how he looks, is frail and weak. That was a psycho piece of **** picking on a much weaker individual for that reason alone. Iím not denying there are lunatics out there but the majority of people are decent regardless of their political affiliation. Itís the fringe that represent the malignancy.

Worst part of video was that kid didnít get to enjoy his bacon cheese whataburger with his fountain coke. Animals.

I wear this shirt all the time.



These other two I wore in my early 20ís but kept around for years. I also had one that had a bunch of kittens on the front that said so many kittens to love. It had another word for kittens.














I had one more that said I have a pine inch nenis and it was in pine green. The wife gave me such a hard time about false advertisement that I eventually quit wearing it.



Not me in the pick but Iím sure my level of stupidity was the same.

This ****** me off to no end. Wish I would'a been there.

I've been of the opinion that Trump is a duchebag, and honestly he's surprised me.
Still think he's a ******, but somehow less of a ****** than I actually expected.

I don't care if you're a tranny eating taquitos
Gay guys eating double meat cheeseburgers
Illegals eating WB tacos
They could be the devil themselves.

I ain't letting anyone treat someone else that way in my presence.

Same thought I was having. I have some SCI shirts and a TBH pullover. Guess those are offensive to some since it represents hunters but it does not phase me in the big scheme of things.

I agree! People like that need to be put in their place quickly. He definitely did it because they are spindly little boys at best. Just ridiculous state of affairs! I hope his lawyer costs, court costs and restitution costs are so severe he cant walk straight.

Unfortunately a go fund me account for set up for the culprit to help with his bail and legal expenses. The amount in the screenshot I had seen last was near $50,000 that had been donated. But I also heard it had been removed. I'm hoping that is true
