This is unsurprising and retarded:

Archie-Gun-Shot-Die

Oh wow, an “openly gay” character in Archie Comics, and a shooting of that character which Archie tries to stop and ends up taking a bullet and dying.  *gasps* *primal screams*  sooooo cutting edge… so edgy… so relevant to the struggles and things going on in today’s world. *eye roll*  To make things even better, the gay character Kevin Keller Keller is a married military veteran and newly elected senator who’s pushing for more gun control in Riverdale after his husband was involved in a shooting.  Like if that isn’t the perfect manufactured character and story line I don’t know what is.  I feel like I’m gagging on a rainbow filled unicorn horn right now.  It’s a real shame that the writers didn’t have the foresight to make Kevin Keller black or Mexican, a war amputee, and a transvestite midget too… that really would have pushed the “Ooooohs and Aaaaaaaahhs” over the top and gained major points for originality.  So much white privilege in Archie Comics it’s like a Hitler Youth publication.

“We wanted to do something that was impactful that would really resonate with the world and bring home just how important Archie is to everyone,” said Goldwater. “That’s how we came up with the storyline of saving Kevin. He could have saved Betty. He could have saved Veronica. We get that, but metaphorically, by saving Kevin, a new Riverdale is born.”

Archie-Kevin-Keller-GayROFL that quote is literally the gayest thing (no pun or disrespect intended) I have ever read.  My sister and I used to read a lot of Archie comics because my grandparents owned a store.  I lost respect for the franchise when they started repeating storylines years later in comics thinking people wouldn’t notice.  Well we did notice and stopped reading.  The comic also got watered down heavily as the world was beginning to change to what it is now, where people who own companies convince themselves they have to walk around on eggshells and not dare say anything non-politically correct which would piss anyone off.

Thoughts?

Badass suppressor… It’s white (porcelain?), on a revolver, has a “shoulder thing that goes up”, and causes sound to be reduced to a mild “TSHUNG”.

I want one.

P.S. Archie comics own. I read so many when I was young, even spanning years before I was born that I started noticing stories being repeated verbatim.  I remember thinking that it was bullshit that they thought kids were too dumb, or didn’t have the back issues to notice.  I think I recall MAD magazine doing the same thing.

Arming all the passengers on flights?  With the right choice of ammo, works for me!  Sounds like Archie could have prevented 9/11.

As you know i’m a big advocate for arming everyone that isn’t a criminal (or mentally unstable). In the “gun free zones” the criminals obviously have the upper hand.
