John Popper is psycho

John Popper

John Popper was arrested by Washington State Patrol Wednesday after he was caught in a speeding car going 111 MPH on Interstate 90. John wasn’t driving, but did own the car. Who cares right? Blues Traveler sucked hard. Well, inside the Mercedes SUV officers discovered

“…a cache of weapons and a small amount of marijuana. A police dog searched the vehicle, finding numerous hidden compartments containing four rifles, nine handguns and a switchblade knife. Authorities also found a Taser and night vision goggles.”

In addition, the car had flashing emergency headlights, a siren and a pa system. The vehicle was of course seized. Popper explained all these installations were because he was afraid of being left behind in the event of a natural disaster. Also, he liked collecting weapons.

Who knew after all these years of mocking the seemingly innocuous Blues Traveler, I might have died in an “accident” from a gun 100 yards away. Seriously, 13 firearms and night vision goggles? The only people who need all that stuff in one place are Rambo and the Terminator. Even then, those guys would call this a little excessive.

    Who’s John Popper?

  • Er, the harmonica guy from Blues Traveler.

    He got popped for the drugs & speeding, not weapons charges. The guns were all perfectly legal. The guy likes to collect & shoot guns. He goes to shooting ranges when he travels (frequently) and doesn’t want his stuff stolen.

    I love how you assume that because he owns firearms he will shoot you. Wake up. 2 out of 3 americans own firearms. Do you feel scared going out in public??

  • Never do I say there were weapons charges. Of course they were legal. He’d be stupid if they weren’t.

    Do 2 out of 3 Americans create secret compartments in their cars to carry rifles and pistols? Do 2 out of 3 Americans put sirens and PA systems in their cars? Do 2 out of 3 Americans suffer from paranoia? Why would I be scared going to go out in public? Do those 2 out of 3 Americans carry concealed firearms jonesing to use it?

    responsible gun owners like popper who are in the public eye are exactly what we need more of. The man won’t hurt anyone. like the rest of us responsible gun owners, he excercises and appreciates his 2nd ammendment rights. And hidden compartments make sense. If you’re transporting a firearm, you don’t want it to be accessible to others who might use it with ill intentions. And preparedness and survivalism is something we need more of by private citizens of this great nation.
