So much for the law-abiding, even-tempered, 2nd Amendment hero fantasy:
Hicks, a Second Amendment rights advocate with a concealed weapons permit, often complained about both Christians and Muslims on his Facebook page. "Some call me a gun toting Liberal, others call me an open-minded Conservative," Hicks wrote.
Imad Ahmad, who lived in the condo where his friends were killed until Barakat and Mohammed were married in December, said Hicks complained about once a month that the two men were parking in a visitor's space as well as their assigned spot. "He would come over to the door. Knock on the door and then have a gun on his hip saying 'you guys need to not park here,'" said Ahmad, a graduate student in chemistry at UNC-Chapel Hill. "He did it again after they got married."
Bolding mine, since the media has apparently determined the fact he was licensed by the state to carry a concealed weapon is only worth a casual mention. We'll give the nut-jobs over at Grass Roots NC a few more hours to concoct their tortured reasoning to show how this doesn't call into question the crime-fighting superhero image they've created of CCW Man.
