This guy is for real. He was walking up and down the street carrying his Ray Gun and talking to himself or who ever came near him as you can see in the picture. You can see his Ray Gun in his left hand.Shortly after this photo he noticed me and said that taking photos was illegal and he was going to shoot me with his Ray Gun if I didn’t stop taking pictures of him and the entire town. He also claimed that he was a good friend of the Police Chief and the Mayor and he would have me arrested because taking pictures was illegal and he was enforceing the law. This photo was taken from about 25ft away.

    I knew of a woman in Santa Rosa who sported a deputy badge who used to hang out at the mall who was a bit like this fellow. I have a friend who was sitting cross legged at a table as we ate lunch and she came up to her and started shouting "This woman is sitting like a frog!!! This woman is sitting like a Frog!!!" which made us laugh a lot. I am glad that someone is taking care of your local lazer gun friend… it's a sign of what's right in this world.
