Bet you thought the NRA couldn’t find a spokesperson worse than Wayne Lapierre. You would be wrong:

Explaining the NRA’s roots during the same June 2012 speech, [Jim] Porter said, ‘NRA was started 1871 right here in New York state. It was started by some Yankee generals who didn’t like the way my Southern boys had the ability to shoot in what we call the ‘War of Northern Aggression.’ Now y’all might call it the Civil War, but we call it the ‘War of Northern Aggression’ down south.”

I’m sure he’ll be a reasonable voice in the gun debate.


Why is smoke flying out of his ass? Is it an equal but opposite reaction to the poop flying out of his mouth?

Speaking of… I was at the Houston airport earlier today for a flight to Mexico (my stepfather passed away Sunday and the funeral is tomorrow). My flight was aborted when a sensor failed while taxiing to the runway, and we were sent back to the gate. Once there, however, we were not allowed to leave the plane. Apparently, some 20 minutes after I had boarded a crazy guy with a weapon (assault rifle?) stormed the terminal from which I had just boarded my plane and exchanged gunfire with a Homeland Security official. He was shot and pronounced dead on the way to the hospital.

The NRA is holding their annual convention in Houston, BTW.

What an insane world we live in.

@Serolf Divad: was this the guy that fired 2 shots into the air then killed himself w/ an AR35?

Sorry to hear about your loss. And having to be in Houston.


That’s the guy.

And thanks everyone.

Oh yeah, my layover in Houston on the way back is about 5 hours. Wonder what will happen this time?

@Serolf Divad: Lo siento mucho y ten cuidado en tu viaje.

@Serolf Divad: listen to Benedick. He’s always right about these things.

@Serolf Divad: There’s nothing like the hell of IAH (I spent one night sleeping by the baggage things when a red-eye got diverted/cancelled) to make you beg for D-Ef-Dub-U airport with its super-handy people-movers. At DFW, there’s still as many scary fat people probably packing heat, but better beer at that bar near the A-12 gate. (Or is it A-22?) – it’s by the people-mover/subway gate.
