Yikes, this is painful on so many levels:

The YouTube comments are a disaster as you’d expect.

Who puts a QR code on a t-shirt in 2018?  Parkland apparently.

I’m sure I’d get the worst headache imaginable, if I ever tried to listen to one of those Q&A sessions in real life.

Thoughts?

Estimated Female Gun Owners:
USA – 12-17 MILLION
CANADA – 275,000

Not really a surprising difference.  Even taking into account that the population in Canada (36 Million people) is 9 times smaller than the USA (326 Million people).

3:48 – Really handling that slide home.

4:02 – Oh damn they really out here Mozambique’ing attackers.  A lot of full size guns in the mix.

14:27 – Aw damn I can’t see what the Spongebob mocking meme sign says.  That meme is one of my favorites.

14:20 – A sheepdog silently… vigilantly keeps watch over the sheep.

Train like you fight:

0:06 – Oh lawd… we’re off to a good start *cringe*…. holding her wrist with her support hand.  I’m sure that’s better than nothing, but why not have her do it the correct way?

Maybe I’m a dramatic sensitive snowflake, but if I was little in grade school and someone would have told me “Hey Mikey, you know those violent movies your parents won’t let you watch but you see trailers and previews for all the time?  Yea, well that’s basically real life.  You should be prepared for a madman or even one of your little friends to come in here and MURDER YOU.”  I literally would have never went to school again.

1:57 – Holy shit this is going to be traumatizing… guy walking up with a blue rifle for simulation sake.

2:54 – Whoa this pastor actually told 5 year olds that they are actually “getting ready to die if they aren’t paying attention”.

9:10 – Yoooooo only Thomas Morton would rock the oldschool thick leather belt with the white gripped 6 shooter.

10:00 – Pastor talkin about doing Mozambiques “two to the body one to the head”.  Classic.

10:30 – This former police chief makes a good point.  Stats show that police only have less than 1/3 of the shots they fire hit the intended target in high stress situations.  Teachers could do as good or better?  What happens if they miss their intended target?

I don’t know.. again I don’t have any answers.  I suppose it’s better for kids to be prepared (if you can actually even handle real stress like that and make logical spit second decisions at that age) than be clueless… but man I bet that scares the shit out of a lot of them, despite the fact the delivery of the information from the principal is very calm.

If they are going to all this trouble, they should probably at some point use blank rounds or something similar to show the kids how loud a gun sounds when fired in an enclosed space.

VICE is on it, out in the Philippines:

Hmmm ok even the preview at the beginning looks like this is going to be a wild ride.

1:41 – 5.11 hypebeasting at it’s finest haha I wonder what model of 5.11 underwear and socks he’s running.  Maybe we’ll find out later in the video.

2:03 – haha someone shot as the instructor was passing the gun over, and the tourists got a little jumpy hehe.

2:11 – Col. Jeff Coop represent

2:35 – Damn that sign is A E S T H E T I C af.  Hand painted and naturally weathered just how I like it.

2:37 – Naturally he’s running a Serpa.

4:01 – “Free Masonry” 1911.  Interesting gun to have there.

4:45 – Are those simunition rounds or something similar?  Looks polymer.

5:33 – Oooo that battlewear.

6:38 – Glad to see that “confidence drills” transcend cultural boundaries *eye roll* haha.  Yikes… missed the first shot on a balloon that’s barely moving from like 5 ft away *cringe*…  oh man an a press check at 6:50 too!  This is incredible.

7:29 – hahah they are really working these guys now… I thought it was going to be all fun and games for a sec.

7:37 – ICE BUCKET!!! This is straight out of the Instructor Zero handbook of operations.  I’m not so sure this is the stuff guys who have never shot a gun before should be doing, but here we are.

7:45 – “I’ve got the clips” hahahah yes you do sir… yes you do.

7:50 – WOW jostle training too!  Just when I thought I’d seen it all.

11:02 – Interesting how one of the instructors there is in favor of strict gun control in China.

Vice took a look.  This is the trailer:

0:07 – LOL someone school me on what that is. A mortar bomb?

0:08 – Might have just answered my own question… is this what fires them?

0:12 – Oh HELL YA.  #ChildGoals.  If you’re kids aren’t brining you food, beverages and your AK on the reg, what’s the point having any? :P

0:14 – I like this guy’s hair.

0:21 – Yessssss.  Asks kid “Do you want to shoot it?”.  Kid gets overcome with excitement.  Responsible adult chambers one round and removes the magazine… takes it to the window where the kid pulls the trigger kicking off a round indiscriminately into the air haha.

0:32 – I didn’t notice until after.. but this kid is playing with a 1911.

0:34 – AHHHHHH my head is about to explode, finger in the barrel.

AK47-Fitness-Workout0:36 – NO NO NO.  Loaded or not, have some dignity and teach your child gun safety my man.  I can’t let it slide even though that kid is wearing a legit AF spongebob polo.

I might watch the full episode when it comes out *shrug*.  I’m sure it will have a ton more gun safety violations which will make me cringe.

This Thursday January 15th at 7pm.  Open to the public apparently:

VICE-LogoI’ll probably watch it after the fact.  I just hope the pro-gun side is represented well.  I’m sure there will be more than enough of the “high capacity assault clips and anti-helicopter automatic weapons which the founding fathers couldn’t have anticipated, are massacring American people by the millions daily” crowd.

Anyone of you guys on participating?  If they need some dank gun related memes made up, I’d be the first to lend a helping hand.
