On January 19, our nation will have a new holiday to celebrate. Normally, we’d have the Hallmark corporation to thank for this, but this time there is a very different force behind the movement: the American gun lobby. That’s right, it’s time for the first annual “Gun Appreciation Day,” and instead of buying chocolates and flowers to mark the occasion, this holiday encourages you to buy -- you guessed it --- more guns!
In honor of this auspicious occasion, we've put together this collection of
idiotic dangerous great moments in second amendment rights.
Obviously, for every responsible, law-abiding gun owner out there, there's one of these folks. It almost makes you wish there was some sort of enforceable law in place that kept guns out of the hands of irresponsible people.
Fortunately, none of these individuals were seriously injured... but, clearly, not for a lack of trying.
(Remember kids: if it wasn't obvious already, you should never, ever play with guns.)
