The NRA’s blood for the tree of liberty

Oh the precious value of ignoring an entire clause...

Two children lose their lives in unintentional shootings almost every week in the United States, a finding that is substantially higher than government figures, according to a new study published Wednesday by a leading gun-control advocacy group.

The study, titled “Innocents Lost: A Year of Unintentional Child Gun Deaths,” listed 100 deaths in 35 states for 2013.

The findings represent a 61 percent higher figure than the average number of unintentional gun deaths reported annually by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) from 2007 through 2011, according to the report, published by the organization Everytown for Gun Safety.

But if gun laws were more strict, only criminals would be able to accidentally shoot children.  And that would make Wayne LaPierre sad.

Over Easy



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
