This brave child has been watching his share of Home Alone.
In an almost motion picture-esque turn of events, police said a 10-year-old Brooklyn boy deterred two burglars with their own gun.
Officials say that two men forced themselves into an East 80th street home in Canarsie on Monday, telling the two teens they found inside Read More
If humanity is good at one thing, it’s taking seemingly innocuous technological innovations and using them for evil.
The newest victim of our baser human instincts? 3-D printing, the snazziest reinvention of an office supply since the electric stapler, and now, according to a Vice documentary, our newest way to manufacture illegal guns and drugs. Read More
Are you guys ready to read tweets from Rep. Steve “The most conservative Congressman in Texas! 100% lifetime NRA, GOA, NAGR, Right to Life rating. Offended? Yell at @DonnyFerguson” Stockman?
Are you??! Because fair warning, he’s got himself a new bumper sticker idea, and it definitely includes some nonsensical sloganeering about abortion, babies and guns.
So…you ready for it?
In 1995, President George H.W. Bush gave up his lifetime membership in the National Rifle Association via an angry open letter in which he expressed his outrage over a fundraising pitch made by current NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre that described federal agents as “jack-booted government thugs” wearing “Nazi bucket helmets and black storm trooper uniforms.” Though President Bush said he was “deeply” offended and asked the organization to “remove my name from your membership list,” seventeen years later, the NRA is still promoting his past association with the group in its online gift shop.
Today, the president of the National Rifle Association of America, Wayne LaPierre, made his organization’s highly-anticipated statement regarding the shooting at Newtown, Connecticut. Anyone who was hoping for anything less than usual b.s. about how the school system needs more guns should probably stop reading right here. Also, the NRA wants us to note, that it is our culture’s glorification of Splatterdays (what?), Mortal Kombat and Natural Born Killers–specifically–that causes mass shootings, not military-style assault weapons that we can buy online.
SLUGS AND THE CITY
In light of the three very recent, very public shootings involving the New York Police Department—including the most recent one at the Empire State Building, where the majority of the injured were hit by bullets that came from NYPD guns—New Yorkers may be curious about the level of proficiency our city’s “finest” have when it comes to firing guns in the middle of the most populous city in America. Enter a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” thread, this time featuring a six-year veteran of the city’s police force, answering questions about our cops and the guns they carry on their belts.
It seems in poor taste to run a fashion item about designers who cater to gun-concealing chinos and jackets while the Trayvon Martin case is still on the forefront of everyone’s minds, but you know what they say: Fashion trends (and bullets) stops for no man. Just like the skirt stories before them, a new ridiculous piece in The New York Times claims “Fashion Statement in Clear,” only to add “…the Gun Isn’t.”
The Observer warned of a brewing bike backlash, but who knew it would turn violent so fast?
