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?

Ok, Stupid Slut DeVos needs to go.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Education Secretary Betsy DeVos reiterated her push for school choice during an annual education technology conference in Utah Tuesday, comparing the issue to being able to switch between phone service providers.

She said there are many great cell phone companies, but people have the option to pick which one they want to use.

Because your kid's future is EXACTLY the same thing as your cell phone bill. Gods what a stupid twat. There's really no explaining to a billionaire bitch why we need public education. So why bother? It's going to be more asinine drivel for another 3+ years. Next!

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Texas lawmakers are advancing a proposal to license family immigrant detention centers as child care providers.

The state Senate voted 20-11 Tuesday to give preliminary approval to a bill that would allow Texas to license two family lockdowns, despite a past state court ruling that such facilities do not meet minimum requirements to care for kids. The measure would enable detention facilities to hold families for prolonged stays, which advocates say could physically and psychologically harm children.

Yes, Texas found another way to help their prisons earn money! By incarcerating whole families and then claiming credits as child care. Imagine, what a great way for kids to learn and grow, behind bars in a cement box.

America the loathesome. It's not a great time or place to be a kid.

45 says he's the NRA's friend. I don't think the NRA needs any more friends.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Police say a 14-year-old girl was fatally shot on the front lawn of a church near her middle school in Alabama.

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- A gunman distraught over a recent breakup calmly reclined in a pool chair as he shot strangers at a birthday party and phoned his ex-girlfriend so she could hear the gunfire and screams of terror, San Diego police said Monday.

Of course guns don't kill it's criminals who kill. Only it wasn't a criminal who was shooting up the pool party or the 14 year old girl. These are people who weren't criminals...yet. But they still managed to kill, didn't they? I wish america would get over the stupid slogans and war of words over something that's too accessible and too easy to use.

No one needs a gun. And 14 year old girls don't need to die either.

He's at it again.

"The eight-year assault on your Second Amendment freedoms has come to a crashing end."

- Dickhead Donald

What eight year assault? I dare you to show me ANYthing that the federal government did to impinge on the second amendment rights for sane, legal, honest gun owners. ANYthing.

You can't can you? Because Obama didn't actually DO anything to limit access and ownership to guns. Even when a school full of elementary school kids died because a Mom wanted to "bond" with her insane son by buying his attention with automatic weapons NOTHING FUCKING CHANGED.

Yeah, making america safe, better, greater, whatever the fuck you want to call it. Dickhead Donald is all right on top of that. Like a fly on shit.

Guns, guns, lots of guns, everyone with guns, has ones to kill... Sing it with me now!

A Chicago man fatally shot his 22-year-old son after an argument over who would walk the dog erupted into a gunfight between them, say police. (BBC)

Guns + temper = dead. Unfortunately there's no way to eliminate temper from humans, but having a gun is a choice, not a necessity for the typical person at home.

And then someone you love or loved or didn't even know at all winds up dead in the time it takes not to think and pull the trigger.

Guns, guns, lovely guns, so much funz...

Because EVERY toddler should have a gun.

DELTONA, Fla. (AP) -- A woman who left her child unattended in a vehicle in the parking lot of a Florida church's school has been charged with felony child neglect after the 3-year-old boy found her loaded handgun and pulled the trigger, sheriff's deputies said.

PHOENIX (AP) -- The parents of a 9-year-old boy who was shot in the head in their Phoenix home put off calling 911 as they cleaned up evidence in multiple rooms of the house, police said Wednesday, calling it a case that "shocks your conscience."

It's tRump-merica! Everyone should have a gun! Every single person, including babies and fetuses. Because GUNS MAKE EVERYTHING BETTER.

Except for dead people. But they don't count.

NRA has a message for Trump supporters: "it's ok to shoot anyone that disagrees with you."

The head of the National Rifle Association says conservatives should stand up for themselves if "the violent left brings their terror into our communities."
Wayne LaPierre spoke Friday at the Conservative Political Action Conference, where he showed videos of violent protesters. He asked the crowd if they were ready to take on the left.
LaPierre said: "Show them you won't submit. We will not be intimidated."
He says members of the NRA helped President Donald Trump win the election, that "Americans wanted a fire, and we got one."
He also argues the media is a threat, saying, "You're not going to win, and you will not defeat us."(AP)

So, it's not about the right to bear arms to overthrow the government, it's to ENFORCE government views on those who disagree. Put another way it's a declaration of war against the majority who voted against an evil, lying, psychotic, sack of shit. And anyone who dares protest, who considers using the same angry rhetoric that made the Tea Party Fuckwads so popular are now targets because tRump won.

It's not hard to understand why Dickhead Donald is now one of the least popular presidents in American history, with douche nozzles like this one agitating an already divided nation to further violence. This is the vision of an america for "all people"? No, it's a vision of armed-mob anarchy, something we're sliding towards with so much speed it's frightening.

Because it's a GOOD thing to put guns into the hands of the certifiably insane.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Congress on Wednesday sent President Donald Trump legislation blocking an Obama-era rule designed to keep guns out of the hands of certain mentally disabled people.
On a vote of 57-43, the Senate backed the resolution, just one of several early steps by the Republican-led Congress to undo regulations implemented by former President Barack Obama. The House had passed the measure earlier this year. The White House has signaled Trump will sign the legislation.
The Obama rule would have prevented an estimated 75,000 people with mental disorders from being able to purchase a firearm.

It's hard to understand why the GOP feels the need to enable crazy fuckers to own guns, especially when there's documented history of crazies being the ones who have used said weapons to kill as many people as they can. Such as children. But no, the NRA wants to enable everyone and anyone to have a gun to kill, kill, kill. Because killing is cool or something. And no, it's not about self defense because certified wack jobs like Lanza and Holmes weren't being threatened by elementary school kids or a theater full of moviegoers, really not.

I'm pretty sick of the whole "I need a gun" bullshit. No, no you fucking don't. You don't need a gun. ESPECIALLY if you're stupid-crazy. Wanna hunt? Sure, go nuts. But you don't need a pistol or an AR for that. Going to overthrow the government? Right, go ahead try it and get back to me on that too. Because someone is going to invade your home and take you hostage?

The ratio for 2012, per the Violence Policy Center, was one justifiable killing for every 32 murders, suicides or accidental deaths (the ratio increases to 38-1 over the five-year period ending in 2012). (LA Times)

Yeah the statistics don't support that. You're more likely to shoot a family member or just fuck up and shoot yourself instead. But hey, the GOP loves sucking NRA dick because John Wayne and Clint Eastwood ok?

What a fucking stupid way to govern.

Guns! Hur, Hur, Hur.

Yep, totally her fault. She should have known better.
A Florida woman has died after being shot by a homeowner while searching the neighbourhood for her lost dog. The victim, Rebecca Rawson, 65, was fatally injured after approaching the armed householder's home on Tuesday night, say sheriff's officials. As her relative knocked on the door, Eugene Matthews, 83, emerged firing a handgun, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office. Ms Rawson was taken to a local hospital, where she died. Officials say that Ms Rawson and her daughter waited in their car as her brother-in-law knocked on Mr Matthew's door to ask if he had seen their dog. Police say Mr Matthews opened his door and started shooting at the family. (BBC)
Gene was CLEARLY being threatened! Omg! Who wouldn't have done the same? Fuck that woman. Fuck her dog. How DARE They come on to his property and ring the doorbell! Guns make everything better. Don't they?

Now even liberals are arming themselves against bigotry, hate and bullets.
Gun ownership has traditionally been associated with the right wing in America but the election of Donald Trump has prompted some left-wingers to join gun clubs - and even start preparing for the collapse of society. (BBC)
During the election Pro-Trumpers stood outside of election venues armed with large guns. They were on display everywhere, and to anyone who says that wasn't a sign of intimidation, well bald-faced lying was a big part of Trump's strategy, one the voting public seems ok with. So when faced with threats of death and a leader who couldn't give a fuck about who gets hurt and why it's not too surprising to see even those who loathed guns changing their mind. I get it, I truly do, in fact the same strategy of projectile-vomiting hate and unsubstantiated facts has been surprisingly cathartic. I mean why should *I* fact check? Why should *I* be the one trying to tone down the rhetoric? Guns and hate are the new code of the day. Fear and intimidation are holding hands and skipping along right behind. Ok, well down the hatch, time to welcome our new overlords. Just remember, it's every man for himself now and don't go banging on your liberal neighbor's door asking for a stick of butter because if you get shot in the face, well, tough on you.

You know it took me decades to figure out the GOP strategy on guns: abortion is bad BECAUSE we need extra babies to make up for the ones that die due to poor gun handling.
The findings: During the first six months of this year, minors died from accidental shootings - at their own hands, or at the hands of other children or adults - at a pace of one every other day, far more than limited federal statistics indicate. (AP)
So let's figure, 365 divided by two, so roughly 180+ kids dying a year. If we relax gun laws, make ownership easier and remove regulations on storing and locking totally maybe we can bump that up to one dying every day. Hmmm, given that there's roughly 700k abortions per year we're going to have to work a LOT harder than that. Maybe once Trump is in office and we legalize rape and repeal the 19th AND ban abortion we can start making a real dent in that number. Vote Trump! Guns and pregnancy for all!

Stupidity does. The next question is: how do you unlink the two?
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Police say a Florida man asking if a bulletproof vest "still worked" was fatally shot by his cousin. A Tampa Police report says 23-year-old Joaquin Mendez put on the vest late Saturday and "wondered aloud whether it still worked." Police say his cousin, 24-year-old Alexandro Garibaldi, pulled out a gun and responded, "Let's see."
I know, I know, it wasn't the gun's fault. But when is someone going to invent a gun that retracts the trigger when the idiot holding it isn't smart enough? Kind of like the better mouse trap, it'll make someone a fortune when they do. Unless of course the NRA gets involved.

This Will Not End Well

For anyone. But apparently Texas is immune to tragedy.
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- A federal judge has denied a last-minute attempt by professors to block a new Texas law that allows concealed handguns in college classrooms, buildings and dorms. The decision Monday comes two days before the fall semester begins at the University of Texas at Austin. The 50,000-student campus has led opposition to the law since it was signed by Republican Gov. Greg Abbott last year. Three professors claimed in a lawsuit that guns in classrooms could be dangerous when discussions wade into politically charged topics. But U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel ruled that neither lawmakers nor university regents overstepped their power in choosing where concealed firearms could be allowed on campus.
Yep, some pissed off frat boy with a sense of entitlement is going to make a few people's day. Or life. This is JUST what you want in plentiful supply on a campus where the majority of folks are either tired, drunk, drugged, pissed or just not caring. I wouldn't trust most college kids with their own future, why the fuck would I trust them with the future of their peers? Yep, Texas. Not above proving a point with the lives of others. Because, GUNS. Fucking stupid.

A regular schmo with a gun will win over anyone's uber- buff body. Maybe that's the point.
The video, has been viewed more than 800,000 times and drew a swift response. Most of those who commented were outraged that their firearm-free sport had been associated with guns. An online petition which demands an end to the partnership with Glock has now been signed by more than 20,000 people. One of the outraged CrossFitters, Kyle Williams called the video "a glorified pistol ad." A CrossFit gym in Vancouver wrote, in a an Instagram post, that "CrossFit stands for fitness, health, and community, and The Games is rewarding the top athletes with a gun. How does that make any sense?"[..] However, the director of the CrossFit Games, Dave Castro has defended the sponsorship deal in a newspaper interview. "I am one of millions of people in the US who own guns for recreational and legal purposes. I compete in competitive shooting events, and I have a lot of friends in the shooting industry. Glock offered up pistols as prizes, I agreed to it," Castro told the Los Angeles Times. (BBC)
Dave Castro is a douchebag. You'd think the director of a franchise would GET the notion that supporting the people who pay him money was a good idea. But no, it's not about them, it's about him. Yes it's fucking lovely that YOU own guns, it's great that YOU have many of them and that YOU like them. But get this dipshit, NOT ALL YOUR CUSTOMERS DO and instead of keeping a neutral stance you've now created a battleground where there didn't need to be one. I mean any idiot would have known that adding guns to fitness wouldn't be a winner, but clearly Dave didn't care. Dave you're going to get more bad press than good, lose more customers than acquire and MOST of all, you've sullied what was just a good sport for a lot of people. Maybe you've taken too much testosterone, maybe you don't have enough, but either way you're a moron. Good luck bringing it back asshole.

Get it? Gonna (be) One Polite Convention? C'mon, that was clever.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Demonstrators at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland next week can't have lasers, squirt guns or sledgehammers - but they can have firearms. That's because Ohio is an open-carry state. People who are legally allowed to carry guns can do so without a permit.
Open carry at the convention. So, guess the anti-Trumpers are going to have to mind their manners and their trigger fingers. It's not wise to lose your temper when there's so many bullets around. Think of it this way: either there's going to be nothing to report, or it's gonna be a doozy.

Yes, this post is about guns.
PARIS, Texas (AP) -- Gun-rights activists, some of them wearing camouflage and military-style gear and openly toting rifles and handguns, marched alongside the hundreds of people who flocked to downtown Dallas last week to protest police shootings of blacks. Their presence was part of the new legal landscape in Texas, which earlier this year allowed people to openly carry firearms in public. Moments later, when a sniper gunned down officers patrolling the peaceful march, killing five, the attack ignited panic and confusion. Who was shooting? Were the people with weapons friend or foe?
DALLAS (AP) -- An Army veteran killed by Dallas police after he fatally shot five officers amassed a personal arsenal at his suburban home, including bomb-making materials, bulletproof vests, rifles, ammunition and a journal of combat tactics, authorities said Friday.
So here's the thing, sure you can carry a gun, but what is the potential impact on you and others around you? Imagine you're in your car and you have a right to carry. When you notify the officer you have the gun and the permit what prevents him from deciding that your next move is threatening or not? It could be race, it could be time of day, it could be that the officer thinks you look like someone who just committed a crime. But any way you slice it the moment you say "yes I have a gun on me" all bets are off. It's at the discretion of the officer if he's going to shoot you or not. Imagine you're on the street at a crowded rally carrying a huge-ass gun. In Texas that's also your right. Now imagine that the guy next to you who is doing the same has decided to put his military training to good use. Are you really safer with that gun? Are the people around you safer? That is what the NRA would have you believe, but when it came down to it none of those gun toting folks saved the day and several people died. I dispute, as I have always disputed, that a gun makes you or the people around you safer. Before I used to say "unless you're an officer", now I'd close even that loophole. Guns don't make you safer, and they only upset people who don't want the threat of accidental (or deliberate) gun-related death to happen to them. Guns aren't going to go away any time soon. And neither are gun-related deaths. Let's see which statistic goes up faster.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) -- A federal judge has barred a Virginia man from using Twitter after he was charged with tweeting threats to two U.S. senators. News media outlets cite a federal complaint as saying that 27-year-old Kyler Schmitz of Alexandria tweeted to one of the senators, "I'm going to shoot you in the head for allowing someone to murder my loved ones." The tweets were sent in the days immediately following the June 12 shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando that left 49 dead and 53 injured.
