Via Bearing Arms comes this story of gross idiocy
Because there are a few cases where someone does something stupid and shoots themselves.
You know, cases like this one.
A man was taken to a hospital in Arizona this week after shooting himself in the groin area inside a Walmart in Buckeye, Maricopa County.
The local police department tweeted on Tuesday officers were working with what appeared to be a “self-inflicted accidental shooting” inside the Watson and Yuma Walmart.
Buckeye PD later confirmed in an update: “Adult male accidentally shot himself in the groin area inside the Walmart Watson & Yuma. Being transported to hospital. No other injuries.”
The Arizona Republic newspaper reported the incident occurred at around 6:30 p.m. after a semiautomatic handgun that was being held in the man’s waistband began to slip. The gun, which was not in a holster, discharged as he attempted to reposition it, the man told cops.
The Arizona Republic reported when police officers responded to the gun shot the man was found in the meat section of the Walmart store with “survivable injuries.” Officers said they filed a report for the unlawful discharge of a firearm but it was believed to be accidental
Note the most important line The gun, which was not in a holster
There is dumb, then there is nuclear grade STOOPIT!
New York Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez bemoaned on Monday the closing of a restaurant where she was previously employed, however, the restaurant cited an Ocasio-Cortez-endorsed policy for its closure.
Ocasio-Cortez visited The Coffee Shop in New York’s Union Square to say goodbye to her old stomping ground before the iconic eatery shuts its doors for good.
The restaurant announced in July that it was closing, and cited the increased minimum wage as one of the attributing factors.
“The times have changed in our industry. The rents are very high and now the minimum wage is going up and we have a huge number of employees” one of The Coffee Shop’s co-founders, Charles Milite, told The New York Post.
Ocasio-Cortez has campaigned on more than doubling the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour, in addition to full healthcare and child and sick leave for all, a policy that can stifle economic growth and lead to massive layoffs.
“Ocasio-Cortez’s desired ‘living wage’ of $15 an hour has been a living hell for many small business owners in New York, who’ve been unable to offset the cost through higher prices,” Employment Policies Institute Managing Director Michael Saltsman told The Washington Free Beacon. “It’s fine to mourn the impending closure of your former employer — it’s better to understand the misguided minimum-wage mandates that contributed to that closure.”
Reality? Naw, Ocasio-Cortez wants nothing to do with reality. She wants Socialism to work dammit! No matter how much damage to real people it does, no matter how many businesses it shutters!
It seems I am very brave, and have a high threshold for pain, and by pain, I mean painful pain, that is, well, painfully painful. See I have a strained uterus. Now, wait, before you get all high and mighty and sciency on me and say I do not have a uterus because I am a man, let me assure you that Planned Parenthood says I do
See! You haters!
The idiocy of over regulation
At this point, the whole country is about one senseless regulation away from ending up like fired Pasadena bus driver Margarito Ayala.
Ayala liked to adjust the bus mirrors before driving, so as not to bash into other vehicles or run over pedestrians…
Then suddenly he was told to stop. Only a mechanic can touch the mirrors.
So Ayala called maintenance to adjust the mirrors for him, resulting in a letter chastising him for creating a “work stoppage.”
They warned him once and after the second time he called up maintenance to adjust his mirrors, he was fired…
EGADS! I have driven large delivery trucks when I was younger, and the mirrors allow you to see and are essential to safety. And no one is better suited to adjust those mirrors than the person driving the bus/truck. But, I realize that I am using common sense here so……………
