The details are a little hard to get a handle on here. But from what I can tell, it looks like this.

1 - Guy had a gov job (at a Navy facility)
2 - Guy draws an online comic
3 - Guy talks about guns at work and is subsequently fired.
4 - Guy incorporates his experience in his comic
5 - Guy gets visit by police at his home for "terroristic threats" because of the comic.

I liked it too.... thats a damn shame if he got canned for that and that he got the "knock knock" for something that bull*****. Free speech is going as we know it. Wow maybe us gunowners should claim minority religion status and then everybody would be running to protect our rights [/sarcasm]

Right on the border here

He coulda been arrested for a hate crime. If they are scared of him since the firing a restraining order could be issued.

Here's his written account:

Says, 'stayed tuned for part 2, when four detectives showed up at my door.'


Funny stuff and great comics. Sounds like a carbon copy of the Matt Corwin debacle, minus the 12 felony charges(so far).


My dad had a wonderful saying in spanish. The english translation would be: "You are master of the words you don't say, and slave of the words you do."


I always hated that smug, little plattitude. So I always go around saying everything and anything that pops into my mind.

I guess some people are just meant to be slaves. :p




I lover the woman's face lol. Hilarious

I've been following Matt Boyd's and Ian McConvil's (sp?) comics for years. We used to wax the poetic about Bungie Games in a Hotline chat room back in 97-98.

Too many sheeple.

I hope I am not in the military defending free speech, cause its not going very well.

But If I want to denounce a religion, spit on its icon and call it art, or start any organization that is any sort of freakishness, the ACLU will defend me. Make a joke about the current paranoia and guns..........go to JAIL.

Kind of ironic, his comic and the happenstance. I wish Americans were educated on more than MTV these days.

So much for crown rule.
