That photo makes my eyes want to vomit.
I was all "jesus I hate you buzzfeed" but then.
Some small part of me delights in seeing
Jason McCullough discover things I already knew about on the internet.
.223 is pushing $1-2/round on Gunbroker.com right now, depending on the brand. That is not what you would pay in a regular store, though, and depending on where you are at ammo isn't that hard to find. Gunbroker at this point is running higher on a lot of things, even 9mm ammo.
Keep in mind, this was posted in the Salt Lake Tribune, and the mall was in Riverdale. Apparently, guys, Utah is overrun with "criminals, cartels, drug lords" and "evil men". This is where Red Dawn begins...
Favorite comment on that article:
Pfffffft. They'd be fine, because they're the good guys, dummy.
It's always fat squishy boys carrying these things (or skinny tweaked out meth boys). All it would take is one punch and BAM, some guy has a free gun. Hell look at how he's draped that thing behind his back, I could take that off him before the Cinnabon hit the floor.
It's like he's only carrying it because he's too scared to be "the snake guy".
That and carrying an unconcealed gun screams "SHOOT ME FIRST".
Not only that, the thing wasn't loaded. He did say he was carrying a loaded Glock 19c, though, which from those two pictures, I can't see. Wonder where he was keeping it? Buh, nevermind, maybe I don't want to know.
I think the Glock 19 is fairly small. He's might have it in his waistband. It is my understanding that a lot of the inside the waistband holsters are very easy to conceal. Although probably ankle, judging by his apparently stellar IQ.
Yeah, judging from his clothing, I would go with ankle.
So which is funnier, the image of that idiot fumbling to load his AR-15 or trying to bend over to pull his Glock from his ankle? I say both in a tie.
None of you would have any chance applying at a modern CSI TV show.
"Guns don't kill people, non-white people kill people!"
I see she's back to trolling the world again. Must have a new book coming out soon.
If you don't do any training with guns and feel you need a hundred-round drum mag to defend yourself from a home invader (cuz, like, gee, if you miss 10-15 times, you've got no fucking business owning that damn gun in the first place), then please get off our planet, kthx.
gd it, I just clicked through to Buzzfeed and the pure concentrated amusing failures in this thread (http://www.buzzfeed.com/daves4/people-who-are-having-a-worse-day-than-you) almost killed me laughing.
I know I shouldn't have laughed, but I couldn't help it when I saw the old guy on the boat going down like a rock.
It was the "superpower" one that got me going, and the "cinnamon" one that finished me off, but the boat one certainly didn't help.
And your application to BAPRD has been rejected
The toilet paper gun is for the ages.
Five people have been accidentally shot at three different gun shows on Gun Appreciation Day today.
Gun safety courses aren't mandatory in the US I assume...?
Okay, first of all, I laughed out loud when I read that, which makes me a terrible person.
Second, they are in some states before you can get a permit, to which you will rightly groan again about the fact that most of our gun laws aren't federal.
Third, I just noticed that the NRA has its own "Gun Safety Laws", one of which I kinda interpret as directly contravening the idea of concealed carry:
But I'm not about to tell that to Leonard Lawrence up there.
Hilarious top-rated comment:
"If only there had been someone with a gun there who could have stopped it from happening..."
One of the accidents happened after a man brought his own shotgun to the show and it went off when he put down the case. It's idiots like these that give responsible gun owners a bad rep.
He failed all four points of the (Canadian) gun safety rules:
Assume every firearm is loaded.
Control the muzzle direction at all times.
Trigger finger off trigger and out of trigger guard.
See that the firearm is unloaded. PROVE it safe.
All five injuries were stupid. One with a loaded shotgun in a case. One dealer handed a loaded weapon to a potential buyer who then discharged it. Last one was loading his .45 and shot himself in the hand. Which heavily implies he was holding it by the fucking barrel WHILE LOADING IT.
This is the problem we have in this country with guns: culturally, we do not treat them with respect nor take any proper precautions with them. We treat them like goddamned toys.
I was just going to post about the Raleigh gun show. The four rules are so fucking simple that one would think that any mouth-breathing moron could memorize and follow them, but they clearly can't. I become more and more ashamed of my fellow gun owners every single fucking day. I can't even buy ammo because of these retards that can't but shoot themselves. If I see or hear anyone refer to this as an accidental discharge, I will shit in that person's mouth.
What? This is a hilarious non-story. It's idiots that shoot two dozen children in an elementary school that give responsible gun owners a bad rep.
I disagree. It's idiots who shoot two dozen children who make the nightly news. Let''s not lose sight of all the day-do-day gun violence.
Yeah you're right, to call it a non-story is insensitive to how many people needlessly die or get injured in gun accidents every year.
Whoever is running those gun shows should be fined or have their license suspended. Everyone I've been too has been pretty strict about making sure all guns that come in are unloaded.
I didn't say that at all. To call it a non-story is to ignore how many people are harmed by guns even unintentionally and to ignore how easy it is for any idiot to acquire and use a gun.
I'm sure more kids are killed in the US by accidental shootings because their parents don't lock up their firearms properly than all of the mass shooting deaths combined in a given year.
Yes, that too.
No question. About 10,000 people are murdered by guns each year in the US (guns are used in about 2/3 of all murders) and about 600 people die accidentally because of them. The murder rate in the US is actually about half what it was 20 years ago, but still much higher then the rest of the "western" world.
Quotes from protestors in Albany protesting Cuomo's new gun law:
"We are unfortunately losing a right that God gave us."
"Seven rounds isn't going to cut it if there's ten people coming in your house."
The whole story is filled with wonder, unfortunately NY1's weird website prevents non-TWC from watching anything.
In the case of the Raleigh show, that's when it happened. The guy was giving his gun to the person responsible for verifying weapons are unloaded.
You're leaving out the 20,000 gun suicides and 23,000 accidental firearm injuries that happen each year.
I can think of two incidents just off the top of my head of guns accidentally discharging in public spaces somewhat recently, one of which left a child injured. I'm reminded of this every time someone says more people should carry in public because it would make us all safer. At some point in that equation you wind up with enough guns in public that accidental injuries and deaths far outweigh any advances you could think of in terms of stopping criminal gun use.
The old saw is if you outlaw guns only outlaws will blah blah blah. The other side of that is if you relax gun laws too much, then a lot of dumbasses will be walking around with guns.
And on the 8th day God created... the AR-15? Lulz.
Because this totally happens all the time, amirite? I don't think I've ever heard of a home invasion where a veritable squadron of gun-wielding attackers was involved.
These people are a fucking embarrassment.
