An Arizona t-shirt shop owner is now under investigation after pulling a gun on a customer who refused to take off his face mask while shopping in his store.
According to local news station WRTV, Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office are investigating an incident where Trump-supporting store owner Scott Cerkoney pulled a gun on Arizona resident Everett DePue for wearing a mask.
Cerkoney says he has “a strict no-mask policy” in his store, and he approached DePue and instructed him to either leave or remove his mask.
The two men then got into a shoving match, which prompted Cerkoney to pull out his gun and point it at DePue.
Cerkoney tells WRTV that he doesn’t think his views on masks are extreme — although he posted a video of himself on Facebook last year in which he said “we’re going to war” if President Joe Biden won the election.
WRTV asked Cerkoney about this video, and he told the station that “there are a lot of people that want to fight for the country” and suggested that he’s considering leaving the United States due to Biden’s election.
