Really? What do you think?
A man who dresses as a stormtrooper from Star Wars and makes funny videos for his VINE account caused quite the uproar in Salina, KS when a bystander thought he was carrying an AK-47. Yep, because that Star Wars blaster prop looks just like an AK-47.
According to local media KSAL,
[Christopher Burns (aka Stormtrooper Sam)] tells KSAL News that he was a little surprised at the reaction, “Star Wars is such an iconic image, I was a little bit surprised that someone would see a Stormtrooper and fear when you know it’s been around since the 70′s,” he said.
Multiple police officers responded to the 100 Block of South 7th Street at around 1:00 in the afternoon Monday to the report of a possibly armed man.
