Members Of Open Carry Group In Virginia Die In Head-On Collision


We mock Open Carry groups all day long, and even this particular one. Still yet, we never wish death upon anyone. Not ever.













Early Friday morning in Ohio, four members and supporters of a high-profile Richmond, Virginia, firearms rights group were killed in an early morning crash.

We’ve taken the piss out of this group in the past, but again, we never wish harm on anyone.

When their car collided with a tractor-trailer, Jason Spitzer III, the founder of The Right To Bear Arms RVA, a grass-roots group of Second Amendment supporters who are known for openly carrying their rifles and other firearms in neighborhoods and shopping districts, died, CBS 6 reports.












Stephen Kim and Jimmy Higgins were also killed in the crash. The Hardin County Sheriff’s office has not released the identity of the fourth crash victim.

Initial reports indicate the northbound car carrying the Virginians collided with the southbound truck. One of the occupant’s in the car was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The other three occupants died at the scene.

The trucker was not seriously injured.

CBS 6 reports:

Members of The Right To Bears Arms RVA told us the four were on their way to Detroit, Michigan, to march through the city with their firearms with a brother group called the Hell’s Saints.

Spitzer posted a YouTube video last month, inviting others to join him and showing the route they were taking to make sure they didn’t violate any other state’s firearm laws.

Because Spitzer’s car was carrying a number of rifles, federal authorities got involved after the crash to find out what they were all about. These young firearms-rights activists have said they openly carry rifles (some of which are similar in appearance to ones the military uses) to make their point. Opponents have said they frighten people with their tactics.

Member Reggie Bowles said he had a message from Spitzer on the road saying everything was fine. The next thing they heard, they had been in a crash.


We’d like to express our sincere condolences to their families. No snark. No biting remarks. No jokes. No mocking. Just sorrow for those they left behind.
