North Carolina Resident Films Himself Shooting 'Amendment One' Pro-Gay Marriage Sign (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

One North Carolina resident is making his anti-marriage equality stance clear after posting a rather troubling video on YouTube that's been going viral in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) blogosphere.

The resident, who introduces himself as Alex, notes: "Right now, there's this amendment trying to be passed -- Amendment One -- that's going to state that marriage is going to be between one man and one woman, which is how it ought to be." Noting that he "was just going to have a little talk" about a "Vote Against Amendment One" sign displayed by a neighbor, Alex proceeds to fire two bullets into the sign with his shotgun.

"That's all, folks," he then notes.

Blogger Joe.My.God, who first linked to the video on his blog, says he has spoken to the Kannopolis police department and they are looking into what will be classified a crime if the shotgun was fired onto property that includes a home or business.

State residents will go to the polls on May 8 to vote on both the same-sex marriage measure and to pick a Republican presidential candidate.

Last week, however, Public Policy Polling reportedly released a new poll showing that support among North Carolinians for the proposed anti-gay amendment has dropped to a record low.
