That Time I Was Accused of Stealing Someone’s “Sh*t”

So THIS happened Sunday night, and I thought I’d share it.

Last evening someone sent me a video post on Facebook of someone who goes by the name Lucien Black who was claiming that I stole his sh*t. His accusation lacked specificity, but he’s a self-styled firearms/self-defense instructor, and I teach use-of-force law, so there was apparently some overlap there that he found offensive. Here’s that video:

The closest I can determine he was upset about was that I had posted a piece on the Army’s adoption of the Sig 320 pistol, with an accompanying head line that began with the word “Analysis:” It seems Mr. Black may have had a separate post on a different topic that also used the word “Analysis:” in the headline. Did Mr. Black claim a property right in the word analysis? It seems so.

In any case, I was bored so I thought I’d object to Mr. Black’s allegation of intellectual property theft. I did so using Facebook messenger, as that was the only ready means I to with which to communicate with him. That exchange went like this:

This was also covered and commented upon extensively, and humorously, right on Facebook, which you can view by clicking here.
