Saturday Happy Hour News Briefs
Some wingnut on Fox News is suggesting we use one of these in the next school shooting, you know, to free the kids:
“I wish this was a joke, but I am being 100 percent serious. In a video posted on the Fox News website yesterday, Allison Barrie, a “defense specialist” and consultant, makes the case for using a water bottle cannon to save kids’ lives. Barrie, who claims to be “very committed to scouring the United States for the latest technology our military is using that our students might benefit from,” recently came across the BCB Wall Breaker. This is essentially a high velocity, air-pressure powered cannon that shoots a five gallon water jug through walls.”
Now, imagine Betsy The Secular School Slayer—and Erick Prince’s sister I might add—armed with permission to take a cannon to public schools. What could go possibly wrong?
I could not help but notice that those walls are unreinforced cinderblock masonry, and golly, no pictures from the other side to see what it would be like to have a water-bottle cannon shot through a wall you are facing, for instance. But I digress. But, you know, blowing up schools to save kids from guns, totally worth it.
The amount of money and damage that the Gundamentalists are willing to spend to do anything except the obvious is staggering.
