Gun Fails Competition



Here's something for all you Second Amendment folks.  Oh yeah, this is what we want.  No apologies to friends and relatives who are offended by this compilation of Idiots With Guns but this is what happens when just about every frigging person in this country has guns, the nuts have them too.  

Words fail me.

    1. Sean,

      That's my point, guns are available to just about any stupid person in this country, including children. Perhaps the most dangerous are the male adolescents who want to prove they're "men."

    Ron, This is funny and sad at the same time. I guess some people should NOT be handling a weapon. When I was in the USAF detached with the Army. I carried a M-16 or Gau-5 or a 45cal.,very often with live ammo. And was thought proper use and carry. These people here are just brain dead morons. One word like you said, fail.

    1. Randy,

      You're absolutely right, SOME people should not be handling guns. A loaded gun is not a toy. Unfortunately in this country guns are available to just about anybody who wants to "play" with them, including little children which too often results in a tragedy. I see no use for guns except for rifles for hunters. I don't even buy the excuse to have a gun in the house for "protection." By the time you get your gun to confront a criminal who invaded your house, it's probably too late.

  3. As I watch aghast (and at a safe distance) at what's going on in your country on this subject right now, I'm always left wondering if those who are anti-gun control really want it to get to where the 'default' stage is that EVERY single adult owns a gun (except, of course, for those who have consciously 'opted out' of gun-ownership, or those with known 'psychiatric problems'), because it seems to be that that is precisely where their argument gets them. Is that really what they see as their desired ideal situation? Has anyone put that precise proposition to them directly?

    1. Ray,

      I live in this country and I recognize how extreme our worship of guns is. My father was a hunter and owned several 22 rifles. Fine. Neither me nor my brothers were hunters, never had the desire. Once when my brothers were teenagers Isaac accidentally shot John the back. Thank God it wasn't life threatening. Ever since then they have had nothing to do with guns. Aside from a madman shooter, my greatest fear of guns is that a curious child should get hold of a gun which results in a tragedy.

    2. Yes, it sounds terribly scary, Ron - even moreso in the light of your own brother's story. For all the checks they may do on the potential owners there is nothing they can do to ensure the security of access to the firearms once they've been bought. I think that when I'm able to re-visit your admirable country (which WILL happen sometime), by then I might be well-advised to buy a bullet-proof vest beforehand. Unless things change for the better, of course.

    3. My co-worker's son got fired from his job at Funland in Rehoboth Beach last summer for having a gun strapped to his leg. His job was loading the kids on the rides. He said his gun was "legal". Well, it may well have been legal but there is a time and a place for everything but displaying a loaded gun around small children isn't one of them. My brothers were 14 and 15 when the 15 year old was shot in the back. My 14 year old brother told me that the gun ricocheted against our father's shacks. I doubt that because the building was made of wood. I think it was just kids playing around and it got out of control. They never went near a gun since. A tragedy averted for sure.
