Son of a Gun

image

The NRA thinks President Obama’s daughters are appropriate fodder for the gun control debate. Well, turnabout being fair play and all, I wonder if NRA President David Keene’s (adult) son has anything instructive to add to the conversation? Oops—we can’t ask him because he’s in the slammer for shooting at another motorist in a road rage incident!

In 2003, David Keene’s son, David M. Keene, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for discharging a firearm in a crime of violence after he shot at the driver of another car from his BMW on the George Washington Memorial Parkway in northern Virginia. Police said the shot missed the other driver’s head by inches. At the time, the younger Keene, then 21, was serving as [American Conservative Union] ACU’s director of online communications.

In addition to Blam-Blam Junior’s legal travails, Keene’s ex-wife pleaded guilty last year to embezzling $400K from the ACU. The Keenes sound like exactly the sort of people who need access to a vast arsenal. Honest to god, you can’t make this shit up.

I guess this post will work here as well…

‘Murica! Fuck Yeah!

  On 01-18-2013, approximately 10:30 a.m. the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office received multiple 911 calls regarding a man with a gun, described as a rifle walking on Walnut Drive towards the Cutten Elementary School. Initial reports were the man was wearing a Camo colored backpack. Deputies were immediately dispatched to the area and arrived within three minutes. Deputies located the man who at that point had walked past the front of the elementary school. The man was holding a 12 gauge Remington 870 shotgun above his head as deputies arrived. The man was wearing a camouflaged tactical vest loaded with sixteen rounds of 12 gauge buck shot and slugs. The shotgun was unloaded. The deputies immediately detained the man and asked him what he was doing. The 18 year old male told the deputies, “I am on the way to the courthouse to make a point that law enforcement can not protect kids and I am going to protect the kids.” The 18 year old male was taken into custody for a mental health evaluation and his weapon was seized.

The rotten fruit just doesn’t fall far from the tree with these a-holes, now does it?

Be interesting to see what kind of sentence little Billy gets.

And why do those same 3 people keep unfriending me! ;-)

Gee, you’d think that the SON of the NRA PRESIDENT would be the singularly most responsible gun owner in the US, at least if one believes the bushwa being poured into the public commons by Blam-Blam’s dad.  Either that, or he’d been a good enough shot to have dropped that offending driver with one bullet. 

So, what do we have here:
(1) a total FAIL on the part of the “responsible gun owner” argument by the son of the guy making the most money making that argument. 
(2) A crime that apparently was so egregious that even daddy’s name and money couldn’t keep sonnyboy from doing 10 years hard time. 

Thanks so much Betty for providing me with my primary comeback for the next asshole who tries the “reasonable gun owner” approach when telling me why we can’t have any gun regulations.

Heh, me too.  Me too.

Hey, at least that’s 400 grand not going towards disenfranchising “blah” people and stomping on gay people’s rights.

Because you spend time at RumpRoast?

YAFB and I have a neighbour who’s committed to donning camo for his leisure-wear and outdoor house work. He’s obsessed with every slate on his big house’s very extensive roof - hence his climbing up and down the metal supports (scaffolding) for the past 18 months. Neighbour may be obsessive, and, don’t know about YAFB, but I am very reassured that guns are not in plenitude in the west of Scotland, just in case Neighbour had too many whiskeys, and found a slate out of place.

Let’s just say if I ever see him going up there with a flask, a pack of sammitches, a sleeping bag, a violin case, and a bandolier, you’ll find me in the basement cuddling the cat.
