assault weapon

Hmm, interesting… VICE takes a look:

Royal-Nonesuch-ENDOYes, because micromanaging what law abiding citizens can purchase is a completely reasonable way to spend taxpayer’s money *eye roll*.  I wonder how many murders and/or mass shooting such laws in restrictive states such as MA, NY, NJ, CA etc… have prevented, since criminals love to follow laws? heh.

hahah nice.  I especially like this comment from reddit by MiniBandGeek:

First they came for the bullhorns, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a director.
Then they came for the drumline, and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a percussionist.
Then they came for the winds, and there was no one left to speak for me.

Some lady asks people on the street:

I was pleasantly surprised most of them didn’t say some type of rifle with fully automatic extended clips, shoulder things that go up, and heat seeking bullets that could shoot down police helicopters.

Assault-Rifle-Because-I-Am-BlackThis winner though –> 1:42 – “Uhhhh that would be something like an M16 or AR-15 made by Bushmaster or one of those gun manufacturers” he says with his stupid looking hat, sunglasses, and smugness.

Joerg Sprave the crazy sling shot guy makes every teachers worst nightmare:

Needs MOAR shoulder thing that goes up, not to mention a cooling fan on the magazine.

The way he puts these things together is always the most interesting part.  I still think he could make more than a comfortable living if he were license out the designs to get produced / sold.

Not one of his most deadly guns, but I still wouldn’t want to be hit by it.

Joerg-SpraveWhat are those black pencils anyway?  Is that some German thing?  Bro do you even HB?  Ahhh I see Faber-Castell on the zoom in… dude is rich!  I used to write with those yellow ones from Wal-Mart before I found a refillable mechanical pencil I liked using.  On a related note, how heartbreaking is it when you lose a mechanical pencil that has been with you through thick and thin?  Sorry, I got feels there reminiscing about lost past pencils that I never found. *pours out liquor*

If it only saves one life…

Williams-Sonoma, the specialty retailer of home furnishings and gourmet cookware with over 250 stores in the United States, has pulled pressure cookers from their shelves following the Boston Marathon bombing.

“It’s a temporary thing out of respect,” said Kent, who is the Store Manager of the Williams-Sonoma at the Natick Mall. He referred Patch to corporate for further questions. Williams-Sonoma also has a local branch at Legacy Place in Dedham.

Pressure cookers will still be available on the Williams-Sonoma website.

Crate & Barrel is still selling pressure cookers in their stores, according to Elizabeth who is the General Manager of the location at the Natick Mall. (Full Story)

Assault-Pressure-CookerWhat happened to the right to keep and bear pressure cookers?  This is BULLSHIT!  Oh… only temporary?   Well still, I’m not a fan.  Trust a bombing to mess up the stew I had planned for late this week.  There better not be a quiche tin related massacre between now and the weekend or my life is ruined.

Crate & Barrel… those heartless bastards.  *Added to boycot list*

Nothing like temporary bans to restore safety and order in the world.

Since it was in TIME, you know it’s a fact:

AR15-Time-Magazine-45-Rounds-Per-Minute

LOL that’s right… 45 rounds per minute with a semi-automatic AR-15.  People are apparently capable of pulling the trigger once every 1.33 seconds.  Impressive… OH WAIT…

When people spout scary facts about guns which are hilariously wrong, even if it makes guns look scarier, I correct them just to make them feel dumb.  If you can’t pull the trigger at least 2 time per second, you probably have arthritis or some other finger/joint issue.  So at 2 rounds per second that would be 120 rounds per minute.

The icing on the cake though is truly the silhouette of the AK-47 they used.

Bravo TIME on your accurate reporting. *slow clap*

Maybe the graphic artist knew exactly what he/she was doing though?  Recall the subtle Glock Grenade troll in TIME’s special ops edition.  Ladies and gentlemen we might have pro-gun a mole-troll inside TIME.

Thoughts?
