Ronald Long of Deepwater, MO, was having a heck of a time poking a hole in the exterior wall of his house. He needed that hole so he could get the new satellite dish hooked up. So he did what any red-blooded American would do under similar circumstances — he fired two shots from a .22 at it.
The second shot hit his wife, Patsy, who was standing outside. Neighbors tried to keep her alive using CPR, but she was pronounced DOA at the local hospital.
Officials at the scene said the whole thing was an accident, punctuating their soundbytes with folksy charm and sentence-ending prepositions:
“He was under the impression that everybody was inside the residence, that he knew where everybody was at,” said sheriff’s department spokesman Maj. Robert Hills.
Guns don’t kill people. Morons with guns kill people. And most of us are morons.
2 responses to “Now can we repeal the 2nd Amendment?”
Worst. Amendment. Ever.
Actually, it’s not, and there’s no need to repeal it:
Money quote: “The Supreme Court determined in 1939, in United States v. Miller, that an individual right to a gun had no ‘reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well regulated militia,’ and thus the Second Amendment did not confer individual rights to gun ownership.”
Which everyone, the Justices included, has proceeded to ignore, obfuscate and lie about in the intervening years.
