Unbelievably Stupid Things Gun Nuts Do

This is a special edition of my series Stupid Things Gun Nuts Do. You will notice I have called it "Unbelievably" Stupid Things Gun Nuts Do because something has happened this week that even I have trouble believing, and believe me, I have been paying pretty damn close attention to the stupid things gun nuts do for many, many years.

It is about that little girl who accidently shot and killed a gun nut who was coaching her on how to fire an Uzi submachine gun. It happened in Arizona outside of Las Vegas at some joint called “Bullets and Burgers,” and don’t that just make your mouth water? I suppose you could call it a theme restaurant, sort of like Chuck E. Cheese's or Planet Hollywood, only with a firing range.

Bullets and Burgers management has announced it’s their policy not to let anyone under 8 years old use the firing range. But this girl, being 9, made the cut. Her parents were filming the incident when it happened, we must imagine, to record for prosperity their li’l pumpkin’s first time with a fully automatic firearm. The instructor first instructed her to fire a single shot, which she did without incident, and with that (and no other) experience under her belt, he told her to let ‘er rip.

She did, and the Uzi—which can rip 15 rounds a second—recoiled out of her control. The instructor was hit in the head.

1. "in Arizona outside of Las Vegas"

Interesting article, but could they not have done a little research on geography before publishing?

4. They did do their research

If you also did your research you would understand why the statement is true.

8. It is poorly written - Arizona is its' own state - Las Vegas

is in Nevada. If the statement had said it happened in Arizona near Kingman (which is close to the NV border and over 100 miles from Vegas) and the site is run by a Las Vegas, NV company that would have been true.

9. Yup, its hard enough to keep up with the

lies that our own government dishes out. Do the media slaves feel they need their own ring in the circus?

I can take hits as well as give them out though. Today Jackson kept barking at me for giving this post importance than his lunch; I should have known better!

5. 28 slaughtered children in an elementary school was not enough for the burgers and bullets crowd

to self reflect on their ingrained insanity, maybe this single act of video taped by equally insane parents insanity might do the trick.

Insane parent at the root of Sandy Hook also.

6. Did you expect millions of gun owners to change?

Really?

Of course, your language, laced with obvious contempt, seriously dilutes any weight your words contain, but pushing that aside for now, what did you really think was going to happen?

Millions of gun owners renouncing guns en masse?


Or do you have the viewpoint that pretty much all gun owners, by the fact that they own guns, are making a dangerously irrational decision to do so, but you had hoped that Newtown would have "snapped" them out of it?

10. Don't listen to that hater, Fred! The culture war will start going your way Real Soon Now!

 

Sarcasm mode to <OFF>

I don't know what's sadder- the fact that people post dribble like that, or that they
somehow believe it will influence the very people they insult on a regular basis.

Of course, it could also be a Kaufmanesque put-on; if it is, one must admit Fred has been doing a fine job of taking the piss...
