Paul Tuschy: Is using a gun on a store clerk actually funny to you?

Paul Tuschy, a candidate for state representative, posted a video on YouTube in which he jokes about using a handgun on an uncooperative store clerk.

Mr. Tuschy, joking around about threatening a store clerk with a gun just doesn't seem funny to me.  

The part where you pull out what appears to be a real gun occurs at the 4-minute mark in the video you posted on YouTube.com.

This footage wasn't secretly taped when you weren't looking.  It didn't come from some stolen home video.  It is from a video you and your heavy metal band, "Smiling Politely," publicly posted on YouTube.com to promote your band and attract fans.  

The video was posted on March 28, 2012, when you were seeking the Republican endorsement for state representative.

I'll leave it up to Mendota Heights Patch readers to watch the video themselves and draw their own conclusions.
