A South Florida Second Amendment Hero was cleaning his .38 caliber handgun, dropped it, and it went off, striking him in the buttocks.
The incident happened at 4 p.m. Sunday in the 3300 block of Forrest Drive, [Hollywood, Florida Police Lt. Derik] Alexander said. “He banged on a neighbor’s door, and the gentleman called us.”
The incident report for the gunfire was not completed Monday and the police spokesman did not yet have the wounded man’s name. He was taken to Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood as a trauma alert patient and his condition was unknown Monday, Alexander said.
Missed his brain by this much…

Remember way back last week when we posted that little post about the white supremacist Frazier Glenn Miller and his friend, the mayor? Well, guess whose remarks have come back to bite him on his little bear butt? Nope, not us — guess again.
Daniel Clevenger resigned as mayor of Marionville, Mo. at a town meeting after residents called for his impeachment over comments he made in support of Frazier Glenn Miller, the man accused of killing three people at Jewish facilities in Overland Park, Kan.
Clevenger, who used to consider the alleged shooter a friend, told a local television station after the tragedy that he “kind of agreed” with some of the white supremacist’s views. After that comment drew negative attention, Clevenger told TPM he was done talking about Miller.
The former mayor told the News-Leader after that he did regret sending an anti-Semitic letter to the editor to a local newspaper 10 years ago. He wouldn’t tell that newspaper whether he regretted his more recent comments, but said that Marionville residents’ characterizing him as anti-Semitic did hurt him personally.
The town meeting itself was “raucous,” according to the News-Leader, and residents spoke out overwhelmingly for either Clevenger’s resignation or impeachment.
I guess that’s what happens to Conservatives who talk outside the echo chamber…
That dog almost sounds human. :-D
Ain’t it the truth. What are the students and their parents paying the big bucks for, and going into debt for?
If the colleges and universities are going to continue to tout their institutions as offering the best education, then they need to show why their faculty and their educational experiences are better than other places. If every college is using adjunct teachers, students may as well go for the cheapest alternative.
Afterwards she stated that her son had come to her in a dream and asked her to do this thing…
Bill Moyers criticized both political parties on Friday for furthering the “protection racket” built to protect the mega-rich from paying their fair share of taxes while extending their influence over politics.
“Sad that it’s come to this,” Moyers said. “The drift toward oligarchy that Thomas Pinckeney described in his formidable book has become a mad dash, and it will overrun us and overwhelm us unless we stop it.”
Moyers pointed out that many members of the “one percent” pay less taxes than the average worker across the board, thanks to tax laws that were drawn up not by nature or divine providence, but by legislators.
There is one disagreement I have with Mr. Moyers. We’re not just engaged in a “mad dash” toward oligarchy. We are effectively already there. :-(
And we shouldn’t be surprised. The response to Hank Aaron may only be a small part of it, but it is still very indicative of the tenor of the country. Racism, anti-Semitism, white supremacy. And on and on.
