NRA Karen threatens to shoot man asking her to wear mask inside Stater Bros Beaumont, California grocery store.
In the video, the woman dubbed ‘NRA Karen’ is seen at the cash register of a Stater Bros in Beaumont, with the person filming telling her: ‘The state says you have to wear a mask.’
In turn, the un-identified woman shoos him away.
‘Bye,’ she says twice with a wave. She then turns to the employee behind a sneeze screen at the cash register and says: ‘I have a mask but I’ll have an anxiety attack in two minutes so…’
The fellow shopper filming the woman interrupts, saying: ‘Just wear a mask.’
NRA Karen leans toward the employee where there is no screen, and says: ‘I really will … I have a medical condition. I have a note.’
The person filming the clip continues his plea for her to wear the mask.
That’s when she looks directly at him and says: ‘You are not videotaping me because you will get shot outside in this parking lot.’
It’s at this point the woman goes through her bag, with the shocked customer responding: ‘Oh.’
Another shopper and the employee – who is not visible on screen – do not respond to what is going on.
After the complaining shopper tells her he’s calling the police she says ‘go ahead’.
She then pulls out a mask and gives in: ‘I’ll put my mask on.’

At what cost resistance?
The video cuts off with her using an expletive.
It’s unclear when the video was filmed but California issued a face mask mandate in the middle of June.
It requires a face covering in public while waiting in a public line.
Exceptions are for children under two years old, anyone with respiratory issues where it would impede their breathing, anyone unable to remove the mask without help and anyone with a medical condition, mental health condition, or disability that does not allow them to wear a mask.
The above incident is the latest in individuals refusing to wear masks in public, often leading to surreal episodes which has seen individuals bitten, spat at, coughed at, beaten, including shot to death.
Despite Stater Bros putting up signs to wear masks, some social media users have complained that many branches are not enforcing the rule.
