Dear Holy Hand Grenade … keep us safe from your acolytesPosted: January 20, 2013
There’s nothing quite like a gun appreciation day to make you realize that many of the people around you are nutters. The same folks that want to regulate every thing that goes on in women’s vaginas and health clinics are out proving the need for “well regulated militia” part of that second amendment by acting out their guns obsessions. Josh Holland highlights some of the lessons that will be lost on the gun fetishists but that we’ve noted this weekend..
So we had this..
A person who was loading a gun outside of the Indy 1500 Gun and Knife Show at the State Fairgrounds was accidentally shot when his gun discharged Saturday afternoon.
The man, identified as Emory L. Cozee, 54, was walking back to his car… loading his .45 caliber semi-automatic and accidentally shot himself in the hand…
An accidental shooting at a northeast Ohio gun show has left one man with injuries in his arm and leg, according to police.
The shooting happened Saturday afternoon in Medina at the county gun show being held at the Medina County Community Center (on Medina Fair Grounds).
Medina police Chief Pat Berarducci said a gun dealer was checking out a semi-automatic handgun he had just bought when he accidentally pulled the trigger.
Investigators believe the round hit the floor and struck a man standing nearby in the leg and arm.
A retired sheriff’s deputy and two bystanders were hurt when gunfire erupted at a large gun show at North Carolina’s state fairgrounds on Saturday — a shooting that officials and witnesses are calling accidental.
A 12-gauge shotgun discharged while its owner removed it from its case at a security checkpoint at the entrance to the Dixie Gun and Knife Show, fairgrounds Police Chief Joel Keith said Saturday.
The punch-line for that last one is that the gun show will now be a gun-free zone. “By Saturday evening, the event’s website clearly stipulated: ‘No personal firearms are to be brought into the show.’”
Sheriff’s investigators combed through what one called a “horrific” crime scene Sunday after the shooting deaths of five people, three of them children, outside Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Each of victims had been shot multiple times, Bernalillo County sheriff’s Lt. Sid Covington, and one of the weapons used was what he described as an assault rifle. Bernalillo County Sheriff Dan Houston said a 15-year-old boy, who “may be a family member,” has been charged with two counts of murder and three counts of child abuse resulting in death.
“Initially responding deputies entered the home and found the five deceased inside the residence, so obviously it was a very gruesome scene,” Covington told reporters. There was no indication of a motive so far, he said.
“I’ve never seen a scene quite like this,” he added.
Investigators did not released the names of the victims Sunday afternoon, saying the process of formally identifying the remains was still going on. But they said the dead included a man, a woman and three grade-school-age children — two girls and a boy.
Santorum advised Congressional Republicans to stand their ground against Obama’s gun proposals.
“I think we should stick to our guns,” Santorum said.
Santorum clashed with former Democratic Governor of Michigan Jennifer Granholm, who supports Obama’s efforts and also was on our roundtable.
“Deer don’t wear armor. Why do you need an armor- piercing bullet?” Granholm said.
“But criminals could…having the ability to defend yourself is something that is a right in our country,” Santorum responded.
Santorum, chairman of Patriot Voices — a group that promotes conservative issues — also tweaked the president for what he argued was a lack of action to address the “glorification of violence” in film and TV.
“Not one thing the president did dealt with Hollywood and gun violence and video games and all the glorification of violence,” Santorum said. “Why do you need to protect Hollywood?”
Yes, yes yes, EVERY country in the world with access to violent movies and video games has the same horrible high rate of gun violence that we do … oh, wait. They don’t do they? With folks like this proving our points, they really need to get another schtick.
