Show your politeness to others.

The man can be seen on surveillance video showing his gun to customers at O’Riley’s Uptown Tavern in Pensacola before making a quick motion as if putting it into a pretend holster below his shoulder. When he did, the gun discharged and a bullet hit the man’s torso, according to the Pensacola News Journal.

Musical NotesGuns and stupid, guns and stupid.
They go together like love and Cupid.
Let me tell you brother,
You can’t have one without the other.

Self-politeness is the politest kind.

According to the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office, the shooting occurred on Nine Mile Ridge. The woman allegedly was sitting outside in a chair with a .22 caliber, semi-automatic pistol in her lap.

The victim told authorities as she went to stand up, she dropped the weapon and attempted to grab it. The gun discharged at this point and the bullet hit the woman in the upper thigh and passed through her leg.

It seems that politeness is for the birds.

Earlier this week, two men were formally indicted for their alleged role in the shooting death of a golden eagle in Idaho.

Considered sacred by many Native American tribes, the golden eagle is protected by a trio of federal laws: the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and the Lacey Act, according to the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS).

Yet another gun left unattended,
Yet another life prematurely ended.

The sheriff said the (three-year-old–ed.) child’s parents were going door-to-door for a revival and briefly left their child in the vehicle. He said the child found the gun in the glove department of the vehicle, and the gun discharged.

And yet another day in NRA Paradise.

Be polite to other drivers.

On July 2, a truck driver was traveling along I-55 near the Memphis bridge when he passed a Chevrolet Malibu that was parked on the interstate. As he was passing, the suspect leaned out of his vehicle and fired three or four shots at the truck before speeding away.

The truck driver was not hurt, but the incident damaged the vehicle, the Crittenden County Sheriff’s Office said. The shooting was reported when the driver reached Tennessee, but Arkansas authorities say they just learned of the crime after the trucking company downloaded the video.

This is the second time an incident like this has been reported in the last two months.

Politeness is a family value.

Police say a 3-year-old girl accidentally shot her father while he was sleeping in their south Wichita mobile home on Wednesday.

Officers responded at around 7 p.m. to the 2300 block of East MacArthur and located the 30-year-old man who had a gunshot wound to his leg. The girl’s hand was also injured. Their injuries were not life-threatening.

Thus passeth another day in the NRA’s Garden of Bleedin’.

Lego maintains that politeness should not appear to be child’s play (more at the link; emphasis added).

Lego-like toy gunA US gun maker has triggered controversy by selling a kit that makes a real Glock pistol look like a children’s Lego toy gun, at a time when hundreds of kids are falling victim to shootings.

The Danish manufacturer of the building blocks has sent the Utah-based company, Culper Precision, a demand to stop producing the red, blue and yellow covering for handguns.

“Our organisation reached out to Lego, which then sent a cease and desist letter to the reckless gun maker,” said Shannon Watts, founder of the group Moms Demand Action, which advocates for stricter gun controls.

This is truly twisted.

Be polite on the practice range.

Witnesses at the (skeet shooting–ed.) gathering in the 36000 block of Stearns County Road 171 told deputies the juvenile was unloading a 20-guage pump-style shotgun when the firearm discharged, causing birdshot pellets to ricochet off the gravel road and hit a 4-year-old, 9-year-old and 67-year-old.

Sam, Emma, and Howard University Professor Carol Anderson discuss the true origins of the Second Amendment to the U. S. Constitution.

Aside:

When I was in college, I worked a summer job with my local health department for three years. The health department’s facility had two men’s rooms, two women’s rooms, and two water fountains. It took me a while to realize that they were legacies of Jim Crow–that, at one point, they had been labeled “White” and “Colored.”

Later on, I remember my father’s saying to me shortly before he passed away, “I’m glad those days are gone,” in a clear reference to the Jim Crow segregation that both he and I grew up in.

But those days are not gone. merely in uneasy abeyance, and there are many that would bring them back.
