Lazy guns

Reader Rob sent this, which gave me a chuckle.


  1. This made the Internet rounds several months ago. I sent it on to everyone on my list. Most of them are conservative-minded people and they can see the common sense of this. Those who don't understand how stupid it is to say "guns kill people" will never understand the nonsense of the statement. They see and believe only the politically-correct lies, never the senselessness.

  2. Spoons, that's it.

    It isn't my repeated cycling of the spoon (full of ice cream) from bowl to mouth.

    That'a my story and I'm stickin' to it.

  3. I tried the same experiment with my 1911 an got similar results. I wonder if it might be a manufacturing flaw.

  4. But wait.....From what I understand through media information it certainly should have "accidentally" discharged or something! I agree with EastCoastDan; there HAS to be a flaw. :)

  5. Excellent! Illustrating absurdity by being absurd. (Tip o' the hat to Maharushie!)

  6. I get Donald's point, but what if some rowdy seven and eight year old boys got their hands on it? These aren't squirt guns.

    I know this is supposed to be on the humorous side, but I lived in a rural place where there was only a single road going in and out of the area. A family with six kids lived at the end of it.

    One day their car almost hit me flying at top speeds around a corner heading out as I was coming in. Their eight year old boy had been accidently shot by a rifle. He was DOA by the time they reached a hospital.

    I worry about that and "stand your ground" when tempers flair.....but other than that......We also own a gun. I just think there needs to be a huge amount of training, respect and responsibility that comes with owning one. This is where we could do better.

    The humorous side of just laying around "in a wheel chair" tends to be funny....but in reality..... they CAN come to life REAL fast when in the wrong hands and yes, it isn't the gun, it's the person holding it. In that I totally agree.
