I showed you pictures of those 'bleeding' gun targets yesterday, but here's Cenk Uygur's take on it. Note that I particularly wanted to show you that video clip with the little kid.
You know what I think of when I see that? Did you see this recent news clip about the five-year-old who shot and killed his two-year-old sister?
As Stephanie Sparks cleaned the kitchen, her 5-year-old son, Kristian, began playing with a rifle he was given last year. She stepped out onto the front porch, poured grease out of a frying pan for the dogs and “heard the gun go off,” a Kentucky coroner said.
Authorities said the boy had fatally shot his 2-year-old sister, Caroline, in the chest. ...
Kristian’s rifle was kept in a corner of the mobile home, and the family didn’t realize a bullet had been left in it, Cumberland County Coroner Gary White said. ...
In this case, the rifle was made by a company that sells guns specifically for children — “My first rifle” is the slogan — in colors ranging from plain brown to hot pink to royal blue to multi-color swirls.
A rifle. A real rifle, which this five-year-old was given last year. That's too young even for a BB gun. And it's made by a company which sells real guns to children as toys! "My first implement of death."
So, then there's this guy, in the TYT video clip, teaching his tiny little kid to shoot people-shaped targets that actually bleed. And, if that's not enough crazy, it's a target of a black man - a black man who not only looks suspiciously like the President of the United States, but which his father dismissively calls "Barry"!
How's that for crazy?
