OK, I Was Wrong. THIS Is The Dumbest Gun Video You’ll See This Week, Month or Year

In a previous post, I reckoned a stupid video about “gun juggling” was the dumbest gun video ever. You know; until the next one. First of all, I admit it: I didn’t know gun juggling was a thing. As I’ve mentioned before, I can’t play firearms-based video games; I find them more addictive (if less fattening) than Amy’s Mexican vanilla ice cream drizzled with hot fudge sauce. Second of all, here it is: the next one. So much fail in so long a time. Still, if there is such a thing as a good bad movie (e.g., Mystery Men), this is a wonderful terrible video. Just sayin’ . . .

Movie Review: The Purge: Election Year

After viewing ‘The Purge: Election Year,’ I felt like I needed to purge. ‘Election Year’ is the third installment in Director James DeMonaco’s manic series of pseudo-political, race-based slasher movies….

The Dumbest Gun Video You’ll See This Week — If Not This Month or Year

I can only imagine that the brains behind this video took their cue from Westerns where the good guy shot a gun out of the bad guy’s hand. Or COD….

Adam Savage Hearts Ray Guns: Just Thought I’d Leave This Here

Steampunk guns are aesthetically palatable to a mainstream audience because they’re fun! Which is welcome. Anything that lowers the emotional barrier to entry for firearms freedom fence straddlers and hoplophobes helps the cause. Which includes NERF guns, of course. In fact, a lot steampunk guns look like NERF guns on acid. Still, you couldn’t get much further from a GLOCK if you tried. Have you tried? If not, a word of advice: buy a glue gun. And don’t let a steampunk cop see you with it in Baltimore. That is all.

If you’re a jobbing journo, making fun of American militia men is a walk in the park. Make that the woods. Militia members are white (racists!), they don’t trust their government (paranoid insurrectionists!) and THEY’VE GOT GUNS! It’s especially easy if you pretend to be one of them. It’s a technique perfected by visiting British comedians/commentators, who view American “extremists” of any stripe — gun owners, snake handlers, self-help gurus, etc. — as a freak show fun. Check out the description beneath this Vice documentary Inside The Michigan Militia . . .
