Five women were attending the meeting of a home prayer group at a duplex apartment in Marion, Ohio last Thursday when the heavens opened up above them. Technically it was the ceiling that opened up above them, when the upstairs neighbor (not our very own Nick Leghorn, above) negligently fired a load of buckshot through his floor . . .

The “stash” itself isn’t news; tmz.com released George Zimmerman’s firearms inventory back in November. But radar.com‘s just released ACTUAL IMAGES of the guns found in GZ’s possession during his last and hopefully final run-in with the law. The pics are blurred and heavily watermarked but it’s the headline’s ballistic bombast that’s so beguiling. radar.com’s reckons the former Floridian’s got a “chilling arsenal.” (Not to be outdone, The Daily Mail, reckons Mr. Zimmerman was “armed to the teeth.”) Here’s the list of “deadly weapons” Herr Zimmerman was “hiding” inside his Florida home . . .

That’s the job of the National Guard. I mean, the police. Unless it’s a big thing or a federal emergency of some sort. Then it’s down to the DHS. FBI? ATF? I can’t keep track.

“When Darion Marcus Aguilar of College Park fatally shot two store employees at The Mall in Columbia and then killed himself, authorities said he did so with a Mossberg 500, a Connecticut-made pump-action shotgun that has been on the U.S. market since 1961,” baltimoresun.com reports, factually enough. “A 19-year-old with no criminal record, Aguilar bought the weapon in a legal December transaction from a Montgomery County gun store. The incident has caused some to take second look at the effectiveness of the high-profile gun control measures the state passed last year.” As Ronald Reagan used to say, “there you go again” . . .
