9 injured after balloons cause Orlando mall shooting scare – “Two months after a gunman killed dozens inside an Orlando nightclub, the sound of popping balloons prompted shoppers to frantically flee an Orlando mall, injuring nine. Orange County Sheriff’s Officials spokeswoman Deputy Rose Silva tells news outlets there was no gunman at the Florida Mall. The loud sounds were actually from six large balloons being popped as part of an industry-standard inspection for the grand opening of former ‘NSync singer Joey Fatone’s new restaurant.” Don’t feel bad, Orlanoans. The thought of Fatone-inspired cuisine would be enough to send us running, too.
Ban crossbows!: Three killed in apparent Toronto crossbow attack – “Three people were killed Thursday after they were apparently shot with a crossbow in Toronto’s east end. Police said the bodies of two men and a woman were found in a Scarborough garage. A crossbow was found near the bodies.”
Beretta’s understandably proud of their Rio results:
I shot a skeet version of the $9000 DT11 at SHOT and it’s a hell of a gun. Maybe some day.
McGinty wins endorsement of CeaseFire Pennsylvania – “In a conference call Wednesday morning, Shira Goodman, CeaseFire Pennsylvania’s executive director, credited (Republican Senator Pat) Toomey with gun-control measures he’s backed in the past, but she also said (Democrat challenger Katie) McGinty was a better match for the group’s agenda, which includes expanding background checks, keeping guns away from those on federal terrorist watch lists and restricting military-style weapons and high-capacity magazines.” So even after Toomey carried their water, sponsored a background check bill, and publicized CeaseFire PA’s support for him, the anti-gun org throws him over and endorses the Democrat in the next election. Go figure. Two words, Senator: useful idiot.
America’s most virulently anti-gun daily newspaper isn’t happy: Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, a proud Trump supporter and avid Black Lives Matter basher, named PBA’s person of the year – “He’s slammed gun control supporters as ‘freedom-loathing gun-haters.’ He’s labeled Attorney General Eric Holder an ‘a—–e.’ He’s ripped the Black Lives Matter movement as ‘Black lies Matter.’ But to the city’s largest police union, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is America’s finest lawman.” It must have taken everything they could muster to leave the term ‘Uncle Tom’ out of their story. Anything that upsets the Daily News this much has to be a good thing.
