Man Open Carries His New Handgun, Gets Robbed At Gunpoint

| by Sarah Fruchtnicht

An Oregon man who was open carrying a handgun he bought last weekend was robbed of it at gunpoint just hours later.

William Coleman III, 21, was reportedly openly carrying his new Walther P22 semi-automatic while talking to his cousin early Saturday in Gresham. Around 2:10 a.m., a man allegedly approached him and asked for a cigarette. A moment later, he asked about the victim’s new gun purchase; as the man replied, suddenly the robber pulled a gun from his own waistband and said, “I like your gun, give it to me.”

SNL is not a fan of the Trump administration, and it shows with every new skit they produce. Do you think they need to tone it down?

The victim handed it over and the suspect fled.

The suspect was described as a light-skinned African American man, 6'1'' with a skinny build, about 19 to 23 years old. He was wearing gray sweatpants, a white T-shirt and flip-flops.
