    And it's a vicious cycle -- the more idiots like this push the limits, the more gun control will be advocated, and the more gun control is advocated, the more gun sales go up.
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    Very little case law is based on the Second Amendment - and the Court threw a monkey wrench at most of that with incorporation - but none of it holds that you have a right to disturb the peace just because you have a right to carry a weapon. The Second Amendment is not a license to act like a fool - or to misuse weapons or to cause others to fear legitimately for their safety. There's nothing in this 'lookie, we're being jerks' kind of 'test' that works in favor of gun rights - these morons are helping gun CONTROL if they are helping anything. But mostly, the courts aren't going to look at the Second Amendment since it doesn't grant the right to be a public nuisance.
    So one wonders what the aim is then, and why/how they've been able to get away with it before now.

    I'm pretty sure the term 'idiot' sums it up. They wanted to prove something - and they didn't even get anyone to hold their beer!

    There's one in every crowd - thinks they know everything and then proves the opposite.

    They probably didn't try anything so extreme - or they got lucky and the cop just let them do their thing, get bored and leave, an option the cops have when the entire country isn't on edge.
