One man's right to bear arms is another man's wrong to bear arms.

A man in Gresham, Oregon, practicing his open carry rights, was robbed by a thief who also had a gun, according to KPTV.

William Coleman, 21, told police that he bought a handgun on Friday and was carrying it around with his cousin. At around 2 a.m. Saturday, another man approached him and asked for a cigarette. The pair talked about Coleman's handgun before the suspect pulled his own "semi-automatic, black" gun from his waistband and said, "I like your gun, give it to me."

KOIN reports:

The suspect is a thin black male, between 19 and 23 years old, clean cut with a small patch of facial hair on his chin, and short black wavy hair.

He is roughly six feet tall, wearing grey sweatpants, a white T-shirt and flip-flop sandals.

Anyone with information about the suspect should call the Gresham Police tip line at 503-618-2719.
