Booze, frat parties, sport rivalries… seems like a safe idea. Anyway, my new favorite politician Gov. Butch Otter is expected to sign it into law. (Reuters)
Really? It was a good thing a mad man brought a 100-round magazine into the Aurora movie theater in Colorado? Sweet Baby Jeebus on a meth binge, who says things like this?
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?
Duck Dynasty is cashing in, quickly, and selling their own brand of guns. Because what else will Wingnuttia and the Xristian Xrazies want to use when they go huntin’ for some queers or shotgun marryin’ those 15-year old girls?
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.
- Today is the almost one-year anniversary of the Newtown massacre that left 20 kids dead (and no new gun laws at all, not even mild ones)
- Gun Lobby Uses Newtown Anniversary To Raise Money
- Report: ‘Active Shooter Situation’ At Colorado High School, 2 People Injured
Somewhere, Wayne LaPierre is laughing.
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.

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!
Life imitating art
According to a Capitol Police incident report, a Kahr CM9 9mm pistol – later claimed by House Speaker Tim Jones’ legislative assistant Dave Evans – was found on top of the toilet paper dispenser in a men’s restroom in the Capitol basement Friday. The incident report states that the gun “was fully loaded with one round in the chamber and six rounds in the magazine.”
My memory of The Godfather is a little fuzzy, but isn’t that essentially how the gun gets into the restaurant?
Famous former Florida neighborhood watch worker and hunter of free-range black youths, George Zimmerman has his estranged wife Shellie looking for him to get divorce proceedings started:
George Zimmerman’s divorce proceedings are on hold, TMZ has learned … because he’s gone Bigfoot on his wife. The divorce can’t move forward until George is served with papers, but his estranged wife Shellie’s lawyer tells us, George is MIA. The lawyer says he can’t find George anywhere and has no idea how to track him down. Sources close to George’s family tell us they’re in contact with him — and he’s safe — but they don’t know exactly where he is. We’re told George plans to lay low for the foreseeable future. As we reported, George caused a media firestorm last week after allegedly punching his estranged wife’s father in the face. He’s been AWOL since.
I wonder if the process servers have looked in Wayne Lapierre’s house?
