It’s lit:

birdman-hand-rubWhoa.  Every single video ever taken at this night shoot was exactly the same until I saw this.

I sure hope there’s no human consumable water supply anywhere near knob creek haha.  Couples would be having babies with like 5 eyes, 24 toes, and night vision.  Night vision would be cool though.  I would definitely operate with that.

Thoughts?

COMMENT

Consequences will never be the same for Glasgow Kentucky police officer Darrell Smith:

That Jose Canseco shit before it was cool (the above video happened last year).

The lack of safety shown from all parties involved is terrible.   I don’t put 100% blame on the clerk obviously, but seriously dude… you don’t prove a gun is safe before you hand it to a customer?  Do you not care about your own life and the lives of your coworkers, if not the customers’?

0:44 – Dat red mist.  *ouch*.  Lucky it didn’t go on to kill one of those 4 people where the gun was aimed!

.380 so it will buff right out after they sew the finger dust back on right guys?

HomerFacePalmAccording to a news story he’s suing the gun store.  It will be interesting to see the result of this lawsuit considering the negligence was just as much his as the store’s.  Always a strong move to blame shit on someone else though haha.

Thoughts?

If he shifted any more weight to his rear foot he probably would have pulled the trigger and fell over.

The video is apparently from the Bi-Annual Knob Creek Machine Gun shoot in West Point Kentucky.

It’s hard to tell from the video, but the gun appears to be a suppressed MAC-10 or M-11 (chambered in 9mm as the description says).  The AR-15 stock kit is a nice touch.

I don’t follow politics at all, but Rand Paul seems to be every bit as interesting as his father.

Covington, KY – The mural at 242 W. Pike St. – which Fairey and his team of artists spent several hours pasting up in sections on Tuesday – drew negative reactions from Claypool and some of his clients and neighbors, including John G. Carlisle Elementary School across the street. The dominant image in the red, black and white mural, titled “Duality of Humanity 4 Pike Street,” is an Asian child soldier holding an automatic rifle.

Fairey’s website, says the artist believes his “Duality of Humanity” images “draw parallels between the complex emotions surrounding the Vietnam War and those felt now about the invasion of Iraq.”

Late Thursday morning, painters hired by Claypool covered the mural with white paint.

I agree, having the mural right across from an elementary school probably isn’t a great location.  They should have figured that out before hand though.

We had a bit of a Shepard Fairey discussion once before in the comments back on the Creepy Human Bone Art post.

Pretty cool looking mural, despite the blatant plagiarism that is inherent in the OBEY brand.

On his way to this weekend’s Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot in West Point Kentucky:

Allen Harvey Friedlander, of Southfield, Mich., was piloting the plane when it crashed on an outer road that circles the fair grounds between gates 1 and 6 about 8:30 p.m., FAA spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said.

No one else was on board the Piper PA-28-180 Cherokee, which was registered to Friedlander.

Eight machine guns, three upper receivers — or gun parts used for assembly — and several thousand rounds of ammunition were removed from the plane, according to Alicia Smiley, a Louisville Metro Police spokeswoman, but the amount and types of guns removed was unavailable.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is investigating the weapons, which are being held in Louisville police’s property room, Smiley said.

My guess is he was bringing all the guns to the Knob Creek shoot to make some money off rentals. (Now Confirmed HERE)

Interview with the Pilot:

Hopefully the man makes a speedy recovery, and the ATF gives him his guns back.

FRANKFORT, Kentucky –Northern Kentucky University has been awarded $10,660 from the state Law Enforcement Protection Program (LEPP) to purchase patrol rifles, Gov. Steve Beshear announced Thursday.

Hmmm… Coincidentally the ATF had $10000 worth of “easily convertible” airsoft m4’s fall into their lap.   Agency to agency transfer anyone? :P

Also, awesome use of “Patrol Rifles”…. It’s refreshing to not see them demonized as “Assault rifle” killing machines.  I guess it has always been this way though; In the hands of police they are “tools”, but in the hands of citizens the same view largely isn’t held by the general public.

Under the LEPP, administered by the Kentucky Office of Homeland Security (KOHS), appropriate agencies can seek financial help for certain defensive items essential in the course of their duties.

“These funds will help ensure that our law enforcement will not be out-gunned and increase security on campus,” state Sen. Katie Kratz Stine, of Southgate, said.

Damn, I’ve only been out of University a couple of years now, but it must be getting pretty rough.  All jokes aside, if this keeps the students safe from psychos then I’m all for it.  I still think allowing students to carry on campus would be a zero cost better alternative though. $10660 isn’t going to buy that many patrol rifles, especially since they will all likely be fitted with some fairly pricey optics.  I say this because I can’t see open sights being a good choice for a possible shootout around hoards of innocent students running in every direction.

In conjunction with the Kentucky State Police (KSP), KOHS derives income from sales of confiscated weapons.

Oh that’s nice! *sarcasm* :roll:  I thought confiscated weapons were either destroyed or else given back to the original owner (if they were found to be stolen).  Or does this policy vary by state and department?  My first thought is that confiscating weapons to fund department purchases doesn’t seem very ethical.
