Default 22 heavily armed men post mannequin challenge on Facebook, much to delight of cops


They should give some serious thought to a having an IQ at least approaching the double-digit mark before you could own a weapon.

<Pistols and shotguns hung frozen in the air, their blunt ends aimed at various people, who remained as still as, well, mannequins. One man was prostrate under the back of a car, as if for cover, the barrel of his shotgun peeking out. Another hid behind a plastic trash can, flimsy protection if this were a real battle.>

<The video was filmed in Huntsville, Ala., but Facebook allowed it to reach those far beyond the borders of the 186,000-person, NASA-centric city. Posted about a month ago on Nov. 9, it has been shared more than 85,000 times, AL.com reported, meaning it reached a lot of eyeballs.>

<Including those of the Madison County Sheriff’s office, who likely wondered if those 19 guns were accompanied by the proper licenses and permits. Given that the house was caught on film, police investigated further and eventually got a search warrant for the property on Powell Drive in Huntsville.>

<Police confiscated two handguns, one assault rifle and a single-barrel shotgun, a tactical vest and many rounds of ammunition and multiple magazines to boot, Salomonsky said.>

<Along with that, they found several bags of marijuana, packed for resale, and a grinder, which is used to grind the plant’s thick buds into a powdery substance for individual consumption.>

About the only dumb thing would be is if they didn't notify the neighbors that they were filming a scene of them holding guns. The idea that one should need a permit and license to exercise a constitutionally protected right is absurd. A video of a staged scene shouldn't be grounds for a search warrant.

It is not a good idea to point any weapon, loaded or unloaded, at anyone or anything you do not intend to shoot. The old stand by, "I didn't know it was loaded" will never die. Those jackasses deserve a good peepee whacking, but that's about it.
