Hey guys - what happened to Barry from the Moss Pawn videos? He was great and he really offset Eric's awkwardness. I don't like the newer guy as much.
Does he not work for Moss Pawn anymore or something?
*googles to confirm
Aw man, that's sad. RIP you magnificent beardy bastard.
Eric got jealous of barry cuz he got his own show
The gist is that he either stole from Moss P&G or received stolen goods; either way he was fired. With nothing left to live for, he turned to alcohol and wasted away, dying within a fortnight of dismissal. There was something else about domestic violence and a car crash, but I never saw a source.
He had a history of alcoholic troubles, and I think that possibly the shock of losing everything is what eventually caused his cardiac arrest.
The rumor I heard is they fired him so they could get SOT status and deal in NFA firearms. Something about barry having shit in his background that prevented them from doing it with him around.
That's probably bs though because how would he have worked at a regular FFL to begin with?
Yep. He did not want to go to jail, nor could he live with a felony. So he offed himself. He had a few misdemeanors from before (DUI, dealing with stolen property and Traffic violations) but now there was a felony with jailtime looming.
You also gotta realize that with a felony on his record he would not even be able to own firearms. So he would not be able to work or provide for himself or anyone else for that matter.
Of course Eric says it was a heart attack, that is the official narrative from the family, suicide is pretty damn taboo. If you look at that video you will also see that Eric says he was battling his "inner demons" and had a lot of legal trouble for the last few months.
Of course he wont say "HE SHOT HIMSELF IN THE BRAIN" on the youtube channel you idiot.
Take a guess if it's an open coffin or not.
It was a domestic violence felony he was facing.
Naturally the people at ARFCOM blame the victim.
