Who knew vets were such pussies?
>trying to convince people that someone would go through the trouble to print up this business card and pass it around
>I'm a veteran, I'm not used to people standing around with guns!
Don't worry friend, I have a trigger warning installed on the door.
Not every veteran is a jackass. Many people in the military are retarded faggots though.
>could not determine their intentions
If that fag took the time to hand that card to a manager, the guy with the gun was clearly not robbing anyone.
If you are so fucked in the head that the mere SIGHT of someone holding a gun triggers severe distress for you, you are a danger to yourself and others and should be institutionalized.

Sounds like a faggot that should stay at home hiding from fireworks
I've read one theory that states that, in summary, many older civilizations were far more accepting of and accommodating to their returning soldiers, particularly those with a strong "warrior culture". They were generally far more open about their experiences, down to the really gritty nastiness of it. There were a lot of coping mechanisms that simply aren't present nowadays.
Nowadays, yeah, sure, the overarching narrative is "we support da troops!!", but this generally doesn't extend very far past slapping a bumper sticker on your car and pretending like you actually care about PTSD and shit, and beyond that a pretty good portion of the population absolutely hates your guts.
smell is the strongest, followed by auditory, then tactical.
I have no Idea that if somebody comes from Iraq and falls at the beach getting their mouth full of sand if they get flashbacks
This. You can tell that card has been photoshopped. And there's been a noticeable upswing in threads lately of anti-military posting. Almost seems like someone outside of /k/ is trying to divide us....
Got half of my towns police force called on me and my friends by a vet once. Two of us were OC'ing on our way to a camping trip and he claimed we drew our guns and were aiming them at him. Fun day
fuck, it must suck for some vets, liberals don't give a shit about you cause "we hate war" narrative and conservatives get aliened by vets because of the "you sent me there" narrative
It depends, PTSD could give delusions and hallucinations
May I ask what you were open carrying? If it's rifles it could trigger some memory of a patrol or something starting to aim at him and shooting. If it's pistols then that's complete fucking nonsense and if it really was a vet then he was just trying to be a complete ass or attention seeking.
I have a 1911 and my bud had a p228
Pretty much, after we were in he "decided not to file charges" but thinks that "a bunch of kids shouldn't have guns." I'm 22 and my friend is 24, and the two others in the car with us were 18.
Wouldn't doubt the attention part, owned a all black jeep with "Zombie Defense Squad" stickers on it. We were speculating as much afterward.
Except that asIde from maybe a handful of elderly sergeants major, nobody in the US military has ever been drafted into it for the last round of wars, so they sent themselves. They volunteered for it, and got exactly what they asked for.
LBJ And FDR were both about as liberal as it gets for US presidents. Eisenhower wasn't, but Korea is also the forgotten war so no worries on that part.
I think leaving a business card like that must have been some activist lefty instead of a vet dealing with his/her (20 years ago her, but now everyone's passive aggressive) issues.
I've seen some bad shit, watched a friend find a mine, and been on the wrong end of enough rocket attacks to make them a good excuse for being late to work. Only one guy from my company has legit screaming 'nam vet PTSD, everyone else is just a little jumpy on now and then. We laugh at someone when then jump in a ditch or start finding cover at a loud noise or when we start calling out vehicles coming down the road. Mental health issues is the new "bum knee" if we don't get another real war soon there's going to be a military that doesn't know how to fight standing between the US and the Russian rape train or the Chinese bill collectors, possibly both.
>I have no Idea that if somebody comes from Iraq and falls at the beach getting their mouth full of sand if they get flashbacks
I just laughed so hard at this, had a really shitty day too so it was very welcome.
Daily reminder that the majority of Europeans that post on /k/ are not gun owners and when they come here seeing a picture of a gun is like seeing a time machine to them, it is surreal and they do not understand that we Americans actually own and carry guns with us daily.
Yeah, because fat, calm, white Texans carrying $1,500 1911s in $300 holsters is the same thing as screaming, tan Snackbars wielding slingless AKs over their heads in dust-ridden streets.
I still go in those businesses while carrying. I don't give a duck about their sign.
However, you better believe I'm out the door if the place gets robbed. Not my problem while they have that sign up
Yeah and when someone catches you and asks for your mos time served and place stationed on video and you cant answer it get ready for your stolen valor charges.
are you serious? forum sliding is an actual thing and has been done many times over different areas of the internet... stop embarrassing yourself and apologize to the man for being a retard
Could be that. I remember somewhere I read a lot of it has to do with how quick they go from there to here. In those times they marched weeks to and from battles, WWI/II the soldiers were on the ships together for a while. This gave everyone time to decompress with people who had been through similar experiences. Now you just hop on a plane band you're back within three or so days
While I get that PTSD is a serious problem you need to sort that shit, with some professional help if it comes to it. It's not my job to capitulate when you get pissy at everyone else for not keeping your surroundings a happy little hugbox just for you.
>implying rights have to be earned
>implying blowing up sand/rice niggers in the desert/jungle for political reasons is earning rights, even if they did have to be earned
until they are protecting american soil from an actual foreign invader, they are just misled kids and entitled welfare queens
I'm 80% disabled. I started carrying because my ptsd won't let me go anywhere without a weapon on me. I'll go to the fucking pool or even shower with my Benchmade knife at the very least. Everyone is different.
I think the way they see it, the snackbars overseas are not an immediate threat. Since they can't think beyond the next season of Glee, they don't worry about them. The rednecks and other crimethinkers at home who DARE to disagree with them are a threat to their world view and must be brought under control. Hence the passive aggressive behavior and veiled threats.
How the fuck does just seeing a gun trigger someone's PTSD.
You, sir, win an internets.
No offense but this whole PTSD shit sounds like a meme disorder vets like to use to play victim for free gibs and autism bux.
Now Im not saying its not a real disorder, but its like being diagnosed with "depression" or "bipolar"; like 60% of the people diagnosed with these are playing it up more than it really is. I seriously doubt seeing a gun is going to trigger some fucking vietnam flashback like its a fucking cartoon.
I knew a guy at my college who had a fucking PTSD dog that he brought to class wearing a some fucking chest rig made for dogs I shit you not
What the fuck is a dog going to do for your PTSD? I'm more convinced he just wanted to be a special snowflake and glorify his deployment rather than keeping it low key.
dogs are good comfort animals.
Heres a decnt article that explains why a dog might help someone with PTSD
this looks like some propaganda tier shit that a bloomberg group would come up with.
nothing like using peoples feeling for veterans to manipulate others feelings about guns
no different than when they inflate stats on child deaths per year by gun
all vets without exception are gigantic welfare queens and pussies...
>Was driving trucks entire time while deployed
>never saw combat or been IED'ed
>only pig related would carry those around
>pig related is a war veteran
Fun fact, your olfaction smelling nerve (olfactory nerve = cranial nerve 1 FYI) goes STRAIGHT to the limbic system of your brain basically, which is responsible for a bunch of emotional regulation and memory formation stuff.
Your other senses mostly go to the thalamus before being sent to their association areas.
Tl;dr, smell goes right to the feels and memories.

They think its bush's fault, doesn't matter.
Also doesn't matter to them that Clinton basically ignored Al Qaeda despite a previous attempt at the WTC. Cuz obviously the branch davidians and Ruby ridge family were much greater threats,
>lmao the dogs just so he can be a special snowflake
>being this retarded
