Cocks Not Glocks coming to the People’s Republic . . . UW-Madison students lining up against bill that would allow concealed guns on campus – Emulating the ‘Cocks Not Glocks‘ campaign that made sex toys hanging from backpacks a regular feature on the University of Texas at Austin campus after a campus carry law passed last year, activists plan to arm students with dildos ‘as a method of fighting the absurdity of guns in classrooms,’ said Katherine Kerwin, the driving force behind several of the efforts. ‘We actually have 200 sex toys on their way right now,’ she said. ‘We’re going to be breaking those out as soon as the bill gets introduced.’ Even the mayor refers to Madison as seventy-seven square miles surrounded by reality.
Moms & Armed Self-Defense – “These are the questions I and so many parents need answers to. I am not willing to be a victim as a lone female, but you can be sure that if a bad guy threatened me and my child, he would swiftly meet an epic, rage-induced, adrenaline-fueled cross between a mama Godzilla and The Hulk. I know every parent can identify with that sentiment. But the adrenaline-fueled mama bear needs to assess, think logically and react swiftly if she wants her kids to be safe.” Moms demand the right to armed self defense.
Heroin Now Kills More People Than Guns In America – “For the first time ever, deaths in America due to heroin overdose outnumber gun homicides. And before you ask, no, the number of gun homicides hasn’t been dropping. Good lord. The data, pulled from the CDC by the Washington Post, is dispiriting reminder of our nation’s worsening opiate epidemic, which was started by money-hungry drug companies and continues to claim more lives year over year. Gun homicides for 2015 were estimated at 12,979; heroin killed 12,989.” As Gizmodo sees it, drug companies are responsible for heroin in the same way that the gun lobby is responsible for gang violence.
Jaffe Report: Unrestricted Gun Ownership in DC Would Be Disaster – “But it’s quite likely our new neighbor at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. will have to decide whether to sign Rubio’s legislation to kill D.C.’s existing gun laws and the government’s right to make and enforce new ones. For decades, the District had perhaps the nation’s most strict handgun controls until 2008, when the Supreme Court struck down the ban. Since then the District has crafted reasonable regulations that allow residents to own guns but also requires training and safety measures.” He means those good old decades when the District was consistently in the top five nationally for its murder rate.
