The Pima County Board of Supervisors in Arizona narrowly avoided a domestic terrorist threat when a man armed with a gun-shaped tie clip had his tiny “weapon” confiscated by security.

Mark Spear, a sinister libertarian-leaning lunatic, tried to sneak the tie clip into a court board meeting before a sharp-eyed security guard saw something and said something.

He instructed Spear to get a receipt so he could recover his vile weapon after the meeting.

In the latest incident of anti-gun hysteria to erupt in America, a security guard stopped a man attempting to attend a court board meeting in Tucson, Ariz. and forced him to remove a machine gun-shaped tie clasp from his necktie for the duration of the meeting.

The incident happened on Tuesday at the threshold of a meeting of the Pima County Board of Supervisors, reports the Arizona Daily Independent.

The man with the dangerous tie clasp was Mark Spear, a semi-legendary local libertarian who calls himself “the “Man in Black.” He is locally famous as one of the organizers behind a successful 2015 ballot initiative to ban the use of speed cameras in Tucson.

The very small, metal, pewter tie clasp Spear chose to wear on Tuesday night is shaped like a 1921 Thompson submachine gun. It is a little over two inches long.

Spear discussed stockpiling ammunition for his tiny gun device with a local radio host.

“If the tie clasp could hold bullets, they would have to be .0045 caliber,” he explained.

Remember the time liberals jumped at a chance to apologize to ‘Clock Boy,’ who brought a device that clearly looked like a bomb to school? I wonder if the President will tweet his support for ‘Tie Man.’

Homeland security experts such as the aforementioned security guard have been on high alert recently, saving countless lives by taking down a kindergartner who brought her princess bubble gun to school, eliminating a nefarious college student who dared to ask questions about gun control, and of course disarming an 8-year-old who had a Lego gun in his possession at school.

Spear, upon getting his gun-shaped tie clip back said, “it is pretty funny that these guys have to take the ‘no-tolerance’ concept to the point where they almost need to look at it like a micro-molecular theory.”

Micro-molecular theory would be infinitely easier to understand than trying to figure out what goes through someone’s head when they confiscate a tie clip.

No word on whether or not the court board meeting was held in a ‘Tie Free Zone.’
