A man in Missouri walked into a Wal-Mart supermarket with a fully armed gun on the 8th, causing panic. Although he did not shoot, he was arrested by the police. CNN said Wednesday that the man claimed it was a social experiment and only wanted to know whether Wal-Mart had complied with the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. However, police said the man was still facing charges of creating a secondary terrorist threat.

According to the report, local police data showed that Andreichenko told investigators, I want to know if Wal-Mart has complied with the Second Amendment. Andreichenko also explained to his sister that it was a social experiment designed to make his Second Amendment rights respected in public. But CNN said documents showed that Andreichenkos wife and sister had warned him beforehand that the idea was unwise, especially considering the recent mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton.

In response, prosecutor Dan Patterson said: Missouri protects the right to open arms, but this right does not allow individuals to endanger the safety of other citizens with indiscriminate and criminal acts. Police officer Mike Lucas also confirmed that Andreichenko did cause panic.
