Bump stock owners can cry me a fucking river. And drown in it.

OSTON (AP) -- Massachusetts on Friday became the first state to impose a ban on bump stocks since the deadly shooting at a Las Vegas music festival.

An appropriations bill that included a prohibition on the devices, which are designed to make semi-automatic rifles mimic the firing action of fully automatic weapons, was signed into law Friday by Republican Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito. The Democratic-controlled Legislature gave final approval to the measure on Thursday.[..]

The Gun Owners Action League of Massachusetts, an affiliate of the National Rifle Association, had sent an alert to its members earlier Friday urging them to contact Baker's office and demand that he use his line-item veto [..] The legislation, which would also ban most trigger cranks, provides no "pathway to legal ownership," for the devices and no ability for current owners to sell them, said the gun owners group.

Ok so Gollum, sorry GOALOM, is having a big sad because all devices which enable someone to inaccurately shoot a bajillion bullets faster than pulling the trigger is now illegal in MA. And if they've spent their money on these devices, they're now breaking the law and need to dispose of them.

Boo fucking hoo.

There's no logical purpose to a "trigger crank" other than to bypass the rules on automatic weaponry. The fact that the state has chosen to close this loophole means that more people will be safe from terrorists, not less. If that's REALLY a fucking problem for you, move one state north. You won't even need a gun license there.

Fuck you and fuck off. And have a great day!

Murder Insurance

The NRA has effectively acknowledged that owning a gun increases the risk of causing death, often the death of an innocent person. In fact the risk is so prevalent they've actually figured out a way to make money off the risk of "accidental" murder. By selling insurance.

ATLANTA (AP) -- The National Rifle Association is offering insurance for people who shoot someone, stirring criticism from gun-control advocates who say it could foster more violence and give gun owners a false sense of security to shoot first and ask questions later.

Some are calling it "murder insurance," and say that rather than promoting personal responsibility and protection, it encourages gun owners to take action and not worry about the consequences. And, they say, it's being marketed in a way that feeds on the nation's racial divisions.

Neat huh? Pay us and we'll keep a lawyer on retainer for you, so shoot, shoot, shoot to kill and don't worry about the consequences because we've got your back (depending, of course, on the quality of your insurance plan.

Carry Guard insurance was launched this past spring by the NRA. Rates range from $13.95 a month for up to $250,000 in civil protection and $50,000 in criminal defense to a "gold plus" policy that costs $49.95 a month and provides up to $1.5 million in civil protection and $250,000 in criminal defense.

So buy all the guns, buy all the bullets. And use them. Kill like you've never killed before. Gosh I can hardly wait for another "lone wolf" massacre, one where the murderer has insurance. Then at least the NRA will be forced to prove they're Emperor Palpatine behind the Sith-gun nuts.

Yep, nothing says "I love you" more than a bullet.

CLEVELAND (AP) — A suburban Cleveland man has pleaded guilty to fatally shooting his daughter while she slept, saying he believed she disrespected his rules by coming home late and not cleaning her room.

Jamal Mansour, of Rocky River, pleaded guilty Tuesday to involuntary manslaughter and felonious assault and has been sentenced to 22 years in prison. The 64-year-old dad earlier pleaded not guilty to charges including aggravated murder in 27-year-old Tahani Mansour’s death last year.

Cleveland.com reports Mansour says he believed his daughter didn’t respect his house rules. Prosecutors say Mansour told investigators he grabbed a gun, thinking she would “respect” that.

I'm guessing Jamal would probably agree that not having easy access to a gun when you're pissed off is probably a good thing. Who spends 27 years raising their child only to kill them over a messy room and questionable curfew? No sane person does, but the problem is when you're pissed you're NOT sane and parenting with a gun is NEVER a good idea, no matter how old the kid is.

So he wanted her to "respect" him eh? Well it's pretty hard to say he was successful with that. I suppose he could have it engraved on her tombstone though...

Actually if you're reading this, they already are sold out.

The challenge for gun rights supporters is a bump-stock ban opens the door for a new debate about where to draw the line over limiting a firearm's lethality. For decades it's been at how many bullets can be fired with one trigger pull.

Bump-stocks blur that line. Can you outlaw a device that helps squeeze off rounds more quickly but not think about prohibiting quick-change magazines or limiting their sizes? Or banning pistol grips, which make firing easier?

It won't take many Republicans, with the NRA looking over their shoulder, to grind the process to a halt. (BBC)

Bump stocks. The only reason to have one is because you're a fucktard who wants to murder a whole lot of people. That said, there are a LOT of fucktards out there because as of this writing you can't buy a bump-stock to save your life (little joke there). For those who don't know, bumpstocks circumvent laws to prevent ownership of automatic weapons by making the gun slam back and forth in your hands so fast that you don't need to pull the trigger. The backlash of the weapon firing does that for you. And because there's no physical mechanism pulling the trigger, it's not technically illegal.

Although anyone who designed, marketed and built a business around such a device is as evil as Hitler, anyone who BUYS such a device is even more evil because no one, NO ONE NEEDS A BUMP-STOCK BECAUSE IT SERVES NO PRACTICAL PURPOSE EXCEPT TO COMMIT MASS MURDER.

Great, we're clear on that. In fact it's so clear even the usually truculent NRA is "open to considering" a ban on these devices even if they're not open to consider bans on other gun accessories that allow one person to spray a crowd with bullets.

America has a problem with guns and more guns and more bullets is NOT the answer. It's like giving a dunk person an open bar, when they're shitfaced giving them more booze is NOT the answer. But the NRA is powerful, they have money and conservatives depend on them to malign and threaten their opponents.

It's 2017. No one NEEDS a gun any more. And against a guy with a bump-stock, your gun isn't going to do you any good anyway.

And while you're at it, tell me again how well background checks, mental health checks and all sorts of other checks (including no-checks) prevent one guy with a lot of bullets from killing a lot of people.

Ya can't, can ya.

At least 58 people were killed and more than 500 injured in [Stephen] Paddock’s attack on the Route 91 Harvest Festival [..] Public records offered no hint of financial distress or criminal history. Eric Paddock, who spoke with reporters outside his home near Orlando, Florida, said even if his brother had been in financial trouble, the family could have bailed him out.

“No affiliation, no religion, no politics. He never cared about any of that stuff,” Eric Paddock said as he alternately wept and shouted. “He was a guy who had money. He went on cruises and gambled.” (AP)

So much for "criminals with guns" being the source of all crime right? He certainly wasn't a criminal. And while we're on a debunking roll, let's try the one where everyone in the audience is armed as a solution to a guy up in a building sniping the shit out of everyone on the ground. Bet that little 'ol purse-pistol would work really fucking well too.

Guns are for killing, the more bullets the more killing. If you need to hunt, you don't need a bajillion bullets, unless you're hunting people. But Americans have swallowed the rhetoric that the number of bullets they can carry on their person is equivalent to the size of their balls. So here we are with an ordinary white guy with no radical affiliations choosing to exercise his second amendment rights by killing and wounding a record number of people.

It could have been prevented. Other civilized nations have figured it out. But we're a nation where dipshits are celebrated and elected king, so I guess we get what we deserve. And speaking of dipshits...

In a tweet Monday, Trump offered “My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the terrible Las Vegas shooting. God bless you!” (AP)

President Dipshit-Dickhead isn't sufficiently educated (or smart enough to let those educated to help him) to know that you don't use "warmest" when people die. It's "sincerest". It's not Xmas you dumb fuck, it's mass murder.

Grow some beards wouldja? Because you're basically just terrorists.

But the NRA has begun a campaign not against pending legislation but what it sees as liberal forces bent on undoing the progress it's made - and the political powerhouse is resorting to language that some believe could incite violence.

Using the hashtags #counterresistance and #clenchedfistoftruth, the NRA has put out a series of videos that announce a "shot across the bow," and say the gun-rights group is "coming for you" and that "elites ... threaten our very survival," terms that suggest opponents are enemy combatants. (AP)

The NRA has gone off-message. Instead of being satisfied with the GOP firmly tucked into their pockets, they're dispensing with any myth of self-defense, or civility and revealed themselves Sith-style: Kill everyone who doesn't own a gun.

That's the message. If you want gun control then you need to die. If your kids were massacred by a suck fuck with an automatic then you need to die. If you decide that you personally don't want to be around guns then you need to die. Basically the NRA has shifted from "we want to coexist with non-gun owners" to "kill them all let the gods sort them out" rhetoric.

Also the KKK and the Nazis have presidential backing, which means expect more murder at the next white-right rally.

Dickhead donald tRump is evil and he's breeding evil with such vehemence that it's flowing out of the toilet, onto the floor and down the street. The NRA has decided that it wants to be the biggest turd in the bowl. Well, good for you guys, at least you don't have to pretend any more.

Guuuns = Smuuurt

So... where did she have it hidden?

Kate Elizabeth Prichard, 25, was still in her bridal gown when she was detained at a motel in Murfreesboro.

She allegedly drew the 9mm handgun, put it to her husband's head and pulled the trigger.

The gun was not loaded, but she later allegedly loaded it and fired into the air, causing onlookers to flee.(BBC)

Yep, it's rootin' tootin' Tennessee and the bimbos got pistols packed in their cleavage. Because guns are great! Next to godliness! They'll have to kill her before they take her guns away! (Insert more meaningless, pro-gun rhetoric here.)

At least he found out before it was too late. Really, really too late. One word for ya bro: annulment.

Title brought to you by the Office of Redundancy Department.

A Florida man told police he "went bananas" after workers from a utility company parked their vehicles in front of his driveway while they carried out repair work. (BBC)

Florida. Guns. Assholes. These things add up to pure stupidity in its most refined form. Gunzerker was mad because a utility truck was in front of his driveway, but instead of using his words he just went out and shot the trucks. Because. This was WHILE the workmen were still trying to fix the issue that probably affected him as well.

His excuse? "He went bananas." Lovely. Lives are at risk and the only rationale is that a truck in front of your house makes you crazy.

Guns are bad. Fucking idiots with guns are lethal. Legality has nothing to do with it when people find it so easy to lose their temper and do asinine shit. It's not like you're going to overthrow anything with your damn guns anyway. All you're going to do is kill people because you went "bananas".

Because stupid people do stupid things with their stupid guns.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Authorities say an argument between two Indianapolis-area neighbors, including one riding a lawnmower, escalated into across-the-fence gunfire.

A video provided by the Johnson County prosecutor's office shows the two trading insults June 27 before 59-year-old Jeffrey S. Weigle - apparently cutting grass at the time - pulls out a handgun.

The video then shows 49-year-old Indianapolis firefighter Dean Keller fire his gun and Weigle returning fire.

Ok these two guys, who are clearly old enough to know better, wind up endangering themselves and others because they got into an argument. Really. If they didn't have the guns I'm willing to bet that neither one would have gotten off their duff to get a stick, bat, rake, bow and arrow, rock or whatever to attack the other person. It would have been too much damn work.

But pulling out a gun and pointing it? Easy. It's the lazy-man's deterrent but it sure the fuck didn't work now did it? It's stupid and they're stupid. In fact the whole thing is just too stupid to go on about.

Guns. You have to love the amazing people who think they're amazing. Because... amazing!

Monalisa Perez, 19, was booked into county jail after shooting at Pedro Ruiz as he held a book to his chest, believing it would stop the bullet.

The couple's three-year-old child and nearly 30 onlookers watched as she fired the fatal bullet into his chest.

Ruiz's aunt said they did it to increase their social media following. (BBC)

So, Mona is pregnant with the second child, both of which had the dubious honor of being present in some form or another at their Dad's death. You have to wonder what kind of testing Pedro did, since this was ostensibly his idea to begin with. In case you're curious it was a Desert Eagle and a "hard cover encyclopedia".

I'm guessing he used a thicker letter like 'd' or 'e'. He probably would have done better just to use "a" with both of the above.

Or maybe, he shouldn't have done it at all. But then again, where's the fame in that? He sure is famous now.

About 1,300 US children under the age of 17 die from gun-related injuries per year, a government study has found.

Researchers at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also found that guns seriously wounded about 5,800 children each year.

Researchers also pointed out that children were rarely injured or killed by guns in other developed countries. In fact, more than 90% of all children ages 14 and up who were killed by guns in high-income countries resided in the US (BBC)

Go on. You tell me. Why is this ok? Is your desire to own a gun more important than all these children? And if you say "It's not me, not my guns" then you're just another delusional fucker refusing to take the credit you're due.

You don't need a gun. Unless you're law enforcement, you don't NEED a gun.

And all those kids? They didn't need a bullet.

Well the GOP wanted more bullets. Guess they got them. I may have to readjust my perspective, after all if EVERY woman were to carry a gun there would probably be a lot less rape and a lot less men in prison for domestic abuse.

A picture is building of the prime suspect in the shooting ambush on Republican congressman at a baseball game in Alexandria, Virginia.

James T Hodgkinson, who shot and wounded congressman Steve Scalise and injured four others, was carrying an assault rifle and pistol, according to authorities.

Five people including two police officers were taken to Washington DC-area hospitals. Hodgkinson died in the firefight with the congressional security detail. (BBC)

Now, of course, there are GOP senators stating how they'll carry a gun on their person at ALL times, even sliding into second base. But why stop there? So many shootings means that EVERYONE needs to be armed at ALL times! Men, women, children, women having children, nurses, doctors, senators, even the nice little old librarian. Because guns, guns, GUNS!

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- A UPS employee opened fire inside one of the company's package delivery facilities in San Francisco on Wednesday, killing three co-workers and then himself as officers closed in and workers ran frantically into the streets, police and company officials said.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Police say a man has been shot in the ankle near the Barclays Center in New York City

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A toddler who was shot in the head while riding in a car with her mother and brothers in Tennessee has died, police said Wednesday.

DRAPER, Utah (AP) -- Police in Utah investigated an anonymous tip about a man who wanted to kill his ex-girlfriend and himself just before he killed the woman and her son

Guns, if we can't live peacefully without them then everyone will just have to carry one all the time. From highschool football games (the ref might need one to protect himself from an angry parent) to girls scouts selling cookies (someone might try and steal them) to trips to Disneyland (there might be a terrorist hiding in the Tunnel of Love) we all need guns, all the time, every minute of the day.

And when accidents happen? Or someone murders an elementary school full of kids? Well, just chalk that up to conspiracy because they're trying to murder the second amendment!

Next up: Overthrowing the gub'mint with ur own Uzi, two good buddies, a pickup truck and a dog.

I mean his sons survived right? So everything's ok, right?

HOBART, Ind. (AP) -- Prosecutors have filed neglect and reckless homicide charges against the father of a 9-year-old northwestern Indiana girl shot to death when his firearm accidentally discharged [..]

The (Northwest Indiana) Times reports family members told police the father was showing a firearm to Olivia and her brothers Saturday afternoon when it discharged, striking the girl in the head.

I've got nothing. You know where I stand. And you know I'm not ignoring yet another, stupid, avoidable gun-related death.

Those two things don't go well together but hey, let's face facts, Americans love their guns far more than they love their kids. In fact if they had to do without one of the two the population would drop like a rock.

HELENA-WEST HELENA, Ark. (AP) -- Police say a 4-year-old boy fatally shot his mother's boyfriend in eastern Arkansas.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Police in Tennessee say a toddler apparently shot a 7-year-old cousin to death at an apartment.

No one expects a seven or a four year old to have a fucking clue about how to properly handle a gun, but in both cases loaded weapons were left within their reach. It's no surprise that with all the NRA-fed gun frenzy that's been going on since Obama was elected that kids are getting their hands on weapons, nor the results.

But the NRA and the GOP would have you believe that its your RIGHT to have so many guns and keep them so insecurely that shit like this becomes so common that no one even cares any more. It's just a kids game now. For great big kids who never, ever want to grow up. And for some who never will.

Florida is awash in guns and yet somehow people die there every day from "criminals". I'm still waiting to see a case where an attacker is gunned down before he can harm anyone, the way the NRA says it works. But in reality it doesn't.

A disgruntled US employee walked back into the factory that fired him and fatally shot five ex-colleagues, before killing himself, police say.

John Robert Neumann, 45, was armed with a semi-automatic handgun and hunting knife when he entered the business near Orlando, Florida, on Monday morning.

The US army veteran was sacked in April, police say.

There is no suggestion he was a member of a subversive or terrorist organisation, they add.(BBC)

So really, where were all those guns saving people? It's a "stand your ground" state isn't it? Shouldn't at least ONE person have had a gun and been able to shoot back? I mean the more guns around, the more likely someone pissed off person is going to start shooting. Isn't the logic that the only deterrence is to have MORE guns and MORE bullets flying to make everyone MORE safe? Well why didn't that happen here?

Maybe because that's not really how it works. Maybe because unless you're an officer you're not trained to whip out a gun and shoot someone accurately when everything is on the line. Maybe because MORE guns ISN'T the solution and just keeping guns out of everyone's hands is a better solution.

I used to doubt that I'd ever go to Florida for a holiday. I don't doubt any more.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Lucy McBath is afraid many more people will die if Florida Gov. Rick Scott signs a bill making it harder to prosecute when people claim they commit violence in self-defense.[..]

The measure before Scott would effectively require a trial-before-a-trial whenever someone invokes self-defense, making prosecutors prove the suspect doesn't deserve immunity.

Scott hasn't revealed his intentions, but he's a National Rifle Association supporter, and this is an NRA priority.

Rick likes guns and, apparently, hates his citizens. In his world, or state if you prefer, the more dead Floridians, the better. Less welfare, less social services. Also less African-Americans since they're scary, which means they're shot more often by white people who can walk away after saying they were scared. It's pretty much that simple. Two people walk down the street, one dies after being shot by the other. There's only one story to be told, isn't there? Now kangaroo courts will rubber stamp any Caucasian who says "that black guy scared me" and justice will never see the light of day. And the NRA will use it as a new standard to sell more bullets.

Florida? Nah, I don't need to go there. Let them kill each other all they like. Maybe it'll make for less voters.

Because guns solve EVERYTHING.

Ha. Not.

May 22 (UPI) -- A South African hunter was crushed to death by an elephant that was shot in western Zimbabwe, the nation's national wildlife authority said.

Theunis Botha "unknowingly got in the middle of a breeding herd of elephants with several calves" in the Gwayi conservancy Friday and was trampled to death, Zimparks acting spokesperson Simukai Nyasha said Sunday to News24.

The elephant was shot as she picked him up with her trunk, before she fell and died, crushing Botha, according to Netwerk 24.

Can you imagine someone walking into a group of mothers and babies and trying to hurt one of them? Doesn't matter the breed, genus or species, he's a fucking DEAD man. Not that there's any room in the world for Great White Hunters making money from killing endangered species. Certainly not in 2017. The fact that he was crushed by the elephant that was shot was also wonderfully poignant.

The days of Bwana-go-trophy-hunting are past. It's entertainment, if you can call it that, for the ignorant and mentally-challenged.

Well, at least they won't have to have him embalmed, now will they?
