Why is Dick Cheney Smiling?

A pro-gun Oklahoma Republican said he feels “horrible” about accidentally shooting another hunter last month.

“I was just sick,” said Rep. Steve Vaughn (R-Ponca City), who wounded the other man in the head with a single 12-gauge shotgun pellet about the size of a BB.

The other hunter, Drew Ihrig, said his injury wasn’t serious, and he’s not upset.

“I was shot but it was a minor injury. I’m fine. It’s no big deal,” said Ihrig, an attorney. “This was a pure accident. It could have happened to anybody on any given day. I hold no ill will at all.”

“Grrrr,” Blam-Blam did not murmer as he finished another Kitten-Ka-Bob, “I wonder if he was getting head from his mistress, too, when he shot his friend?”

The evening dog-whistle

An Alabama congressional candidate, Will Brooke, a business executive who is running in the GOP primary to replace Rep. Spencer Bachus, has a new campaign video in which he literally shoots holes in the Affordable Care Act.

All he’s missing is Jeebus. Next ad, I wonder who what he will shoot.

Liberty!

Rand-Paul--Robocop

Have you ever wondered why you can’t pull your pickup truck into the parking lot of the Gillette, Wyoming, post office, go in, and mail a letter — without giving up your Second Amendment rights?

I’m old enough to remember what going Postal originally met. Continue in your grift, er fundraising letter, Sen. Aqua Buddha.

But the good news is this: On Wednesday, January 29, Senator Rand Paul will offer an amendment, in committee, to the Postal Reform Act (S. 1486).

The amendment will allow you to drive into a post office parking lot with your gun, and will allow you to carry it into the post office, to the extent state law would allow you to carry that firearm in any other venue.

Because the amendment will be offered in Governmental Affairs, a vast percentage of the committee membership consists of conservative Republicans and Democrats running for reelection in conservative states. So there is a good chance that we can score a major victory for the Second Amendment if you act now.

But what about the amendment to thwart the NSA? Bueller? Anyone?

“Would you like Ammo with that?”

Wayne LaPierre’s traveling band of violent gun-licking freaks is upset with marginally talented country singing superstar Toby Keith for not letting them bring their deadly fetish objects into his new franchise restaurant:

“I’ll never eat here. Lawfully armed and spending my money elsewhere,” read one of many disgruntled reviews on the restaurant’s Facebook page.

You do that, sweet cheeks. Go to one of the many other fine dining establishments that allow you to pay your bill with deadly force. Thin the herd.

The Morning Quote, Godwin’s Law Edition

Succeeding [the previous mayor] is a guy named Steve Fulop, who is actually relatively young, but it seems like it’s a requirement if you’re going to be a Jersey City mayor you have to by default be anti-gun. And here is the interesting thing about this guy, Cam. He’s an ex-Marine. Well, what I should say is, he worked for Goldman Sachs in the financial industry and was close to 9-11 when it happened and he was motivated to join the Marines for a few years, which he did. His grandparents were Holocaust survivors according to Wikipedia. So you’ve got to wonder why he is not getting it.

Second Amendment Victory!

A Kentucky man just needed a place to set his gun while he relieved himself in a restaurant restroom on Sunday, but the toilet paper dispenser may not have been the best choice.

The unidentified man was using the restroom at Fazoli’s restaurant in Elizabethtown, Ky. when he set his pistol atop the dispenser. The weapon slipped off the dispenser and shot the man in the leg. Police told The News Enterprise that the trajectory of the bullet supported the man’s account.

Clearly, the toilet paper dispenser is the bad guy in this scenario. Wayne LaPierre wants legislation for permits to have TP!
