What do you do if you’re Kory Watkins and one of the members of your group Open Carry Tarrant County shoots two members of their family dead?
Naturally, if you are the leader of that group, you would lie your ass off and deny everything, then plan an armed takeover of Washington, D.C.
Stop laughing. Kory is super-cereal.
Shut. it. down. He’s calling to shut down the very Government he needs. You see, Kory is unemployed.
Kory’s army has some super-great ideas, like rounding up “the traitors in the mainstream media.” Stop me when you think this patriot sounds just like Vladimir Putin.
A guy named Harry was making too much sense, so later on Jennifer blocked him because she believes he might be a “government troll.” Because he said stuff like this:
Jennifer honey, if this was a tyrannical government you’d be dead. Jennifer’s Facebook posts reveal that she believes the government has enacted mind control.
Harmon Leon has found some gifts for your gun totting, Bible Believing, National Rifle Association, New World Order resisting wingnut friends this Christmas.
Gun-themed T-shirts make for some of the best comic material in the world. And online retail sites, such as Patriot Depot, not only sell “funny” gun T-shirts, they also provide an explanation on why the particular T-shirt is “funny”—in case the humor isn’t self evident. I recently took a trip through the online retail world, and came away with these 10 contestants for funny-crazy.
1) Two Things Every American Should Know How To Use. Neither Of Which Are Taught in SchoolsTwo Things Every American Should Know How to Use…. Neither of Which are Taught in Schools
THE DESCRIPTION: “There is a war going on in our schools to reeducate our children on two things that are so vitally important to the American way of life. The Bible and guns. How far are they going to go before we take a stand and move to protect our freedoms and liberties? Put a stop to Obama and the rest of the Left and encourage everyone else to do the same! Order your ‘Two Things Every American Should Know How to Use’ t-shirt today!”
MY TAKE: Yes, those schools are too busy teaching us stupid lies—like how dinosaurs weren’t the playmates of our ancestors. Stupid schools. I’ll give anyone a crisp $20 bill if they send me a photo of themselves wearing this T-shirt in public.

Check out the NRA’s latest anti control proposal. In a Think Progress Video, I originally saw over at Wonkette ( where we had a lot of fun making fun of it ), Billy Johnson, proposed for lack of a better term “Gun Socialism.”
Kyle Kulinski ( Secular Talk ) Created an excellent response video to Billy Johnson’s “Gun Socialism”
I have to agree with Kulinski.
How would putting guns into the hands of children stop school shootings? We’re supposed to trust little kids now, who are barely mature enough to survive on their own to use dangerous weapons?
Also I’ll bet, Johnson expects us to believe the old myth that more guns equals less crime, sorry but it doesn’t exactly work that way.
His idea may fall in line with the most extreme interpretations of the second amendment, but how is he supposed to squire with the wingnut opposition to anything even perceived to be socialist?
Now how is it that Obamacare, which is supposedly socialism and therefor bad, but this isn’t socialism and this is good? I mean he’s advocating the government spend our tax dollars on giving people guns? Not to mention government funded shooting ranges, and “free” ammo? How is it that wingnuts wouldn’t call him a socialist if he was proposing something like this for anything else?
Also the reason why even the most extreme anti gun control advocates in general can’t perceive guns as a need, in the way he says we should, probably has something to do with this fact. Human beings have literally survived for over a million years without guns.
Old Fart Rants put Cliven Bundy and his supporters in their place. Warning, some foul language.
The people in Clark Country really don’t like it for good reason. Hate Watch Backs him up on this as well.
And for anyone who has already forgotten about Clive Bundy’s racism or has been living under a rock
ATLANTA (AP) A Georgia congressman is using his Senate campaign website to give away a free rifle.
An aide to Republican Paul Broun confirmed Friday that the congressman sent supporters an email inviting them to enter a drawing for an AR-15.
Broun wrote that the drawing is intended to affirm his support for the individual right to bear arms. He asserts in the email that the gun is one that President Barack Obama wants to ban. Broun tells supporters that Democrats and the liberal media support the president’s mission.
You know, anytime you see the word “patriot” in any context other than a conversation about the New England Patriots, five’ll getcha ten you’re either reading about or the direct words of seriously deranged wingnuts.
And a reminder, Paul Broun once had a very tepid answer to the question, “Whose going to shoot Obama?”, he has also called evolution “lies straight from the pit of hell,” and has compared Obama to Hitler, while also calling him a Marxist, all over Obama’s suggestion that their be a “civilian national security force,” which is a longtime wingnut fantasy about Obama.

Wisconsin is an open carry state, but these assclowns were on their way to a Farmer’s market in Appleton…where families usually are…families with children. I get the open carry thing, but these guys head their heads firmly shoved up their ass.
With that said, I do think the cops who responded overreacted - one cop initially drew his gun, another attempted to turn off one of the guy’s video camera being used to film the encounter - and it seems like they haven’t been trained in how to deal with open carry demonstrations. But I don’t blame them for being annoyed. This stunt was just plain stupid.
Two men heading to Appleton’s downtown farmers market with AR-15 rifles slung over their shoulders and handguns in holsters swiftly attracted the attention of police officers last weekend.
Now, they’re attracting attention across the Internet, with some gun rights advocates expressing outrage that the pair were held at gunpoint and handcuffed, while others voice frustration at what they consider a foolish and dangerous stunt.
The men, Charles Branstrom, 27, and Ross Bauman, 22, ultimately were released without tickets or charges.
Branstrom recorded the confrontation with Appleton Police. About six minutes into the recording, one officer sees Branstrom’s camera, confiscates it and attempts to turn it off — but stops only the video. The device continues recording audio for about 45 minutes.
Gun rights advocates think the police acted inappropriately.
“I would never blame police for following up on ‘man with a gun’ calls, but they still have to behave within the limits of the law and abide by people’s constitutional rights,” said Nik Clark, president of Wisconsin Carry, Inc., a gun rights group. “I believe the police were acting outside of their legal authority when they pointed guns at the individuals and involuntarily detained them.”
Milwaukee’s police chief ridiculed the pair.
“In a post Aurora-Newtown environment, it’s a reckless and irresponsible stunt to strut around in public with an assault-style weapon and think police should assume you’re well-intentioned,” Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn said Thursday, referring to mass shooting incidents in Colorado and Connecticut.
“It’s just absurd,” Flynn said. “This has nothing to do with the Second Amendment. These characters and those who support them should be ashamed of themselves.”
The remnants of the Tea Party have been pushing a national “Day of Resistance” rally today to hoot and holler about guns and their big anger; wingnuts from Breitbart down to local hate-talkers have been pushing relentlessly, but there’s already signs of a massive fail going on. Besides the possibility that the whole thing might be a “data-harvesting operation designed to vacuum up contact information and credit card numbers from unsuspecting and largely clueless conservative activists,” there are already signs that participants are going to number in the tens.
From the Facebook page of the “Western New York Day of Resistance Buffalo Rochester and Corning” we get this sad post:
I was very alone in Corning N.Y. today. I honestly thought more people cared about our 2nd Ammendment. My Father, who could not attend due to a doctors appointment, called and asked how is was going. I sent him a picture of just me standing there. I think he cried a little, I know I did.
From the Lenoir, North Carolina rally we get a video proclaiming “way past a hundred” which shows a handful of people very disinterestedly standing around, not in the square, with no signs, who look more like random slouchy passersby waiting for the free music to start than fired-up patriots.
Will update as day goes on.

Wife and I drove 30 miles to St. Paul MN. Only a few people were there at 11:15 a.m. Depressing.
Police were called Wednesday afternoon by Mulqueen’s landlady, who said he’d been harassing her. She tipped them to Mulqueen’s alleged threats, made on a Facebook page under a pseudonym, police said.
“Sort of the rantings of a disturbed, angry mind,” Fran Pillersdorf told CBS 2′s Derricke Dennis. “I was aware and scared.”
On the page, Mulqueen wrote he wanted to kill Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Sen. Charles Schumer, Rep. Nita Lowey, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Harry Reid and members of the Congressional Black Caucus, according to police.
Mulqueen called followers of President Barack Obama “traitor scum” and declared “death to them all,” CBS 2′s Dennis reported.
That sounds like a normal Freerepublic type posting to me…..
“Scores” of emails were received. Scores!
WASHINGTON (AP) — District of Columbia prosecutors received scores of emails from citizens upset because NBC television journalist David Gregory was not criminally charged for displaying a high-capacity ammunition magazine on his “Meet the Press” show.
Prosecutors received roughly 50 emails demanding that Gregory be charged, plus more than 150 others expressing outrage in the days after officials decided to not prosecute him. The Associated Press obtained the messages through a public records request.
Apparently the Twitchy Townhall NRO grievance machine couldn’t get the job done.
