Irresponsible Gun Owner of the Day: Carlos Arias

Who among us hasn’t done stupid shit just to impress a girl? It’s pretty much a rite of passage, isn’t it? Of course, the stupid shit most guys pull usually consists of something relatively harmless like spending too much money on dinner and flowers. Some will go even farther, buying a car they can’t afford. The problem is, some guys just don’t seem to know how far is too far. Take Carlos Arias. He wanted to show his girl how awesomely tough and cool he is while they were cruising in Louisville last week . . .

And according to, he figured a little gunfire was the surest way to a young girl’s heart.

According to the police report, Carlos R Turrelles Arias, 21, was trying to show off for a pregnant girl he had in the car when he got out of his silver Mazda on Southland and fired off several rounds. Witnesses said they ran for their lives as Arias shot at them and into the air. Police said several children were playing in the area.

But don’t try to tell Mrs. Arias’s boy Carlos what he can and can’t do with his gun. “The police report also states Arias told officers it is his right to own a gun and fire it when, and where, he wants.” One out of three ain’t bad!

Of course he’ll almost surely lose his gun rights going forward. That kinda goes with the territory once you’ve been convicted of wanton endangerment 1st degree, carrying a concealed weapon, no operators license and tampering with physical evidence. So after all that, just about the only thing he’ll have a right to carry around will be our IGOTD trophy. And we can’t wait to see how many chicks he impresses with that.

    I am reminded of Obama’s assessment of Kanye West:

    “What a jackass.”

      I thought you were going to say that if Obama had a son, he’d look like Carlos.

    the girl was pregnant you say…..god I hope it’s not his…the gene pool needs to stop right there…

      Why do you have to impress a pregnant girl? She already gave it up!

    I hope he falls and breaks his neck in jail…

      This reminds me of the story about the guy who robbed at store owner at knife point, and “fell off the curb” when he encountered some Marines doing a toy drive out in front of the store. Some fall he must have had with a broken jaw, cheekbone, arm, and ribs by the time paramedics showed up on scene.

    If guilty then he needs to lose his gun rights, driving rights, voting rights, and right to walk around freely in public.

    If it’s his kid and the girl ends up raising a son by herself then there is a high chance that the then adult man will end up in prison for violent crime.

      “If guilty then he needs to lose his gun rights, driving rights, voting rights, breeding rights, and right to walk around freely in public.”

      Just thought I’d add a little sumptin’ on account of the pregnant girlfriend.

      1. avatar ItsLate says:

        I think losing his breeding rights ought to have an honourable mention!

    I thought we were against gun control laws. Who has the right to tell this young patriot that he can’t exercise his 2a rights wherever and whenever he wants too. Just the other day I thought about doining some target shooting in my suburban front yard. If the neighbors don’t like it I’ll just wave my copy of the constitution at them. Sarcasm Off. Jeebus, what a douche.

    Apparently you CAN judge a book by it’s cover. This guy looks like a low brow moron!

    1. avatar Aharon says:

      I often profile people and I’m usually correct about them.

  7. avatar pcrh says:

    Why is it the IGOTD? Why does “the” make it into the acronym? Just askin’. Seems like IGOD would be better.

    1. avatar Ralph says:

      IGOD sounds like something Obama would say about himself. I prefer IGOOTD, which sounds vaguely Swedish.

      1. avatar Chris Dumm says:

        It’s from Ikea, IIRC.

    2. avatar Chris says:

      Forget IGOTD or IGOD, this should have been a Defensive Gun Use of the day post, but I guess nobody else was carrying.

  8. avatar Pascal says:

    Sadly, that is a poster picture for the anti-gun crowd!

  9. avatar Gherkin says:

    I’ve never heard of trying to impress a pregnant girl… Sounds like someone had already been a press’n on her.
    What a clown.

    I dunno about that guy, but it always works for me. I just shoot my guns in the air and the girls are always impressed.
