Daily Digest: Stupid Is As Stupid Does Edition

Forrest Gump was right. Case in point: James Hayes of Ambridge, Pennsylvania. We all know you shouldn’t bring a knife to a gun fight. Now we need to add don’t bring a BB pistol either, which is what Hayes used to try robbing a convenience store. The only problem is that the clerk had a real gun and didn’t hesitate to pull it. The surveillance video showing the ensuing scuffle (above) is actually kind of funny to watch; too bad it doesn’t have sound, too. Interim Police Chief James Mann said Hayes “is one of the world’s dumbest, and luckiest to be alive, criminals.” (h/t to RichG)

As RF highlighted earlier today, Former Rep. Gabby Giffords and hubby Mark Kelly kicked off their “Rights and Responsibilities” road show by visiting a pistol range in Las Vegas. But before hitting the road, Mr. Giffords Kelly stopped by CNN to let the media know what they’re doing. When asked point blank if “any of those steps [in his gun control plan] would have stopped what happened in [insert site of shooting here]” he said that, “maybe, absolutely” they quite possibly could have perhaps made a difference.
