Many of us who have been to college have experienced this, but maybe not to this extent:
A 20-year-old Minnesota college student has died from hypothermia after she collapsed on the way home to her dorm after a night out drinking.
I remember walking about 4 miles across town in 40 below weather wearing no jacket but a few bottles of booze. Thankfully I survived, but if I had decided to take a little nap in that weather I would have died too. Thankfully I didn’t.
So let’s ban guns!!!
The guys are back from the NRA Annual Meeting, and those of us who weren’t there are back to our usual tricks. (BTW I’m especially amused by my segment this week…give it a listen!)
Show notes are here, Sean would like to remind all that if you were at the NRAAM you might have missed some of the back episodes which you can find here
It’s always a great show!
Podcast: Play in new window
Never thought of it this way:
So by Joan and Jason’s definition, you are now a ‘victim of gun violence’.
Joan’s sister was shot. She wasn’t anywhere near it when it happened, but she’s a “Victim of Gun Violence”.
Jason Kilgore of Ceasefire Oregon was at a mall when some dude who he barely knew was shot while he was shopping at the Mall.
Of course the post Thirdpower, I was pissed at Joan for declaring the Boston Marathon Bombing because there was some gunplay in the resulting manhunt after the bombing.
Hell in the same post, she even called the Oklahoma City Bombing “gun violence”:
And then, of course, we shouldn’t overlook the Oklahoma City bombing by gun extremist Timothy McVeigh on April 19, 1995 that killed 168 and injured 680. McVeigh was a gun rights extremist and militia member who was anti-government. In an interview with McVeigh years after the terror attack he admitted to the same rhetoric we hear from today’s gun rights extremists:
Yep, since he liked guns, his fertilizer bomb was “Gun Violence”.
Of course I could NEVER be a “Gun Violence Survivor” who stands for loser gun laws, because I’m the wrong type of dude!
Still their claims are meaningless, as are their goals.
Look Folks, you want to do some off-label sexual business in your marriage, that’s awesome, but disclose it up front makes things a LOT cleaner:
A former Rotary Club president arranged to have his wife killed because his marriage was colliding with his desire to indulge in bondage and masochism with other women, a prosecutor told jurors Wednesday at the conclusion of a long trial that revealed a secret life in suburban Detroit.
Again, nothing wrong with all that sexy stuff, but a LOT wrong that he didn’t include his bride into the whole discussion.
And of course killing is wrong….but is it more wrong if it’s a “Gun Death”? In this case the hired killer strangled her…so it doesn’t count!
Los Angeles television reporter has been charged with felony domestic violence after he allegedly seriously injured his wife by throwing a flower pot at her head, authorities said.
The pot struck the woman “full force,” an L.A. County district attorney’s spokesman told the Los Angeles Times.
She’ll live, but it seems that her hubby routinely settles domestic disputes in this fashion, so she’s lucky!
Still, we must keep in mind that only “Gun Death” should count.

This is just so damn insensitive! Joan has up a post called “Virginia Tech remembered – and other April shootings” where she says:
As poet T. S. Eliot wrote, “April is the cruelest month.” It’s true. It’s so disturbing that the month needs to be remembered for so many shootings:
…April 15, 2013 -The Boston Marathon bombing, of course, killed 3, injured many and caused terror to many. But it also did involve several shootings when one of the bombers shot and killed a police officer and the other suspect was shot and injured by law enforcement authorities after a long search that terrorized the Boston area for days.
There you have it! Straight up “Only Gun Deaths Count!” Yeah three people were killed in the bombing and HUNDREDS injured and severely maimed….but also one cop was shot, and the bombers themselves caught some lead! THAT’S THE IMPORTANT PART!
FUCK YOU! When the Bombing happened I was in Boston, and had to go to the train station to get home…the crowded train station.
All I could think was I was walking DIRECTLY to a good target, and I was unarmed because of work.
When the city was in a subsequent lockdown, I was at home armed, not just with a pistol, but a rifle as well.
Hey, but we can’t have guns, because they are ICKY! And the blood of the people of Boston is good enough to dance in for Joan.
I wonder if they dance in blood because they don’t have any of their own in their veins…
Man this has got to be the WORST version of this stupid meme refuted here:
So yeah, Since the NRA Annual Meeting is NOT a gun show, and it is forbidden for exhibitors to sell firearms during the meeting, and there are over 70,000 people handling these guns over the weekend, the rules are for all exhibitors to render their display firearms inoperable (generally by removing the firing pins).
Of course it is implied that they BANNED GUNS…nope those are real guns, just without firing pins.
And of course this only applied to EXHIBIT firearms, with the exception of the North Carolina convention back in 2010, which was not NRA policy, but State Law (which has since changed) all NRA conventions have allowed people who are lawful to carry on the street outside of the convention to carry inside the exhibit hall.
Hell this photo was taken in the press office of the NRAAM the following year!.
And of course there is nothing new about ANY of these rules…so the “Just banned” implies yet another lie.
THis is so wrong, it’s Fractal wrongness!
Remember that story about the Foster parents being denied because they had carry permits?
I wonder if the “Progressive” minds who thought that up, thought about this!
car crash early Monday in Castaic that killed a father and his two children wasn’t an accident — it was the violent, tragic end to a custody dispute between a divorced couple, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department officials said Tuesday.
Divorced Dad picks up his kids, decides he doesn’t want to give them back to Mommy…but knows he’ll go to jail for kidnapping…so he smashes into a truck and kills them all.
Doesn’t make a lick of sense to me, either. Still it wasn’t “Gun Control” so it doesn’t count!
H/T Whipped Cream Difficulties and Bob
We have another great Squirrel Report for you tonight!
We’ll be talking Taxes, NRA Con (and the counter protest by Michael Bloomberg) as well as maybe a little light ribbing of a certain person with some gender identity issues (which isn’t a problem) and some common sense issues (which deserves the ribbing)
So 9pm EST give us a call with What fantasy world you’d most like to live in. The number is 214-530-0036, and we look forward to seeing you.
Also for those who didn’t hear, Alan has now created an IRC Channel for the chat. You can either go to the website and follow the instructions or connect how you normally would to IRC.
Should be a fun show!
IT’S THE SQUIRREL REPORT!!11!!
WARNING, LINK CONTAINS **VERY** GRAPHIC IMAGES
Let’s face it, we all know someone that has a few samurai swords. Whether they’re there to prevent a home invasion, or an attack by zombies after the SHTF has occurred, everyone has a reason for owning swords.
Well, in this case, the swords came to a very good use and helped to defend a man’s family from home invaders. This is the gory aftermath. The home invaders were stopped immediately upon entry into the man’s home. They bailed to their getaway car but did not make it very far due to massive blood loss. They were found by police shortly after driving away, both unconscious due to blood loss.
let’s just say the medics were able to save the two choir boys, but I don’t think they';ll ever be the same.
