The asshole who gave an untrained non-adult a gun for "protection" should be held liable for his actions as well.

Fake parody bills of legislation, while funny, are wasting taxpayer dollars and time. Enough silliness.

Seattle women take no shit.

@3 - yes, that is true. Guess I stepped in that one.

"24,000,000 People Will Lose Their Health Insurance Thanks to Trump's "Repeal and Replace" of the ACA"

But at least the ones who stay insured will pay more for it.

its a minor detail, but how did she lock him in the bathroom?

@7
Just a guess:
Door opens in but has a pull handle on the outside. Woman holds door open from outside while waiting for police?

Quick reminder that naming winter storms is not a thing...it's just something The Weather Channel started it a few years ago. No official meteorological organization like the National Weather Service or NOAA takes part and they ask that media outlets do the same.

@7 i read in one account that a carabiner was used on teh door handle.

They ought to charge the homeowner for giving an underage child a firearm to pay with.

Really, who benefits from civilians owning guns? Unless you live in the high arctic and have to hunt for survival, you have no legitimate reason to own a firearm. And even then, a handgun is pretty much worthless for hunting.

Before you start some nonsensical rant about the government banning knives next, knives have multiple uses. Handguns serve only one purpose- the murder of humans. Just as we ban the possession of homegrown botulism, which like handguns can only be for the use of taking multiple human lives, we have every legitimate reason to ban the private ownership and possession of firearms.

And handing one to a kid is evidence of either incredulous idiocy, or evil intent.

@13,

Ok. So I want to start a collection of heroin and cocaine. There. Is that a legitimate reason?

Or better yet- I'm a microbiology buff (no joke, I actually am). Does that mean I can grow weaponized anthrax in my bathtub?

Why not? Its for a collection! It's my hobby.

No?

Huh. I guess collecting shit isnt a good enough reason, is it?

Wasn't Herron assaulted on the 5th, over a week and 6 Morning News columns ago? This is some awfully stale news.

@13, "It's a better reason to keep guns then your reason to take them away."

His reason to take them away is to save lives. You're saying that pursuit of some shit-brained hobby is better than saving human lives?

@16,

The Constitution needs a page one rewrite. That same document also endorses slavery, something we got rid of because it was a terribly stupid idea. Guns are also terribly stupid, and we ought to ditch those as well.

You know something, there's something here I think you and i ought to address directly. It's this crazy fetish you people have for old documents. The Constitution, the Bible, you're pretty much down with anything as long as it's old. Well, not if it's really, really old. The Temple of Artemis had a view of religion you're probably not down with. People went to the temple to fuck back in the day. If you were down with that, church services would be led by Hookers for Jesus. Now, I'll grant that if you did bring that idea back into fashion, you would get a lot more people to come to church. Or at least, cum to church. Anyway, the pews wouldn't be all vacant like they are now. I mean, the only people who get laid at church anymore are priests and little kids. That's disgusting, and not just because you're a gerontophile with a thing for George Washington. Yeah, don't try ti hide it. I saw your ass jerking off into that powdered wig when you went on that Mount Vernon tour. You and Glen Beck were getting it on in your period costumes. I got it all on video I took with my cell phone. Don't fuck with me, or I'll post that shit to YouTube. I'll do it, I totally will.

I digress. Listen, the Constitution is a bunch of bullshit. Just because its old, doesn't make it good. You ever read the Code of Hammurabi? Scary ass shit in that document, I tell you what. That thing's old, too. Glad we don't live that way anymore.

@16, Then your argument is that gun ownership is protected by the constitution, not that it's fun to collect things that are used to kill people. Don't be stupid.

@12: or ask Allen Ivanov.

@13 it is definitely a legitimate reason to own one, but that shouldn't translate into an unfettered *right* to own one. Society has a right -and an obligation- to ensure that the toys you collect don't represent an undue safety issue for others. To butcher the saying; "your right to throw a fist ends at the tip of my nose".

But rest easy, gun fucker, your toys are safe now.

shocking that the stranger decided not to add that the attempted rapist is another one of our hard working yet unlucky transient bums. bum camps are a perfect place for sex offenders to hide while not registering.
