Telling someone that they suck will now be sexual harassment.


Pretty sure just talking to someone can be considered harassment, even if it was casual conversation or just an attempt to say "hi"

LOL

My five year plan has me in the mountains outside of a decent sized city where I can work and get provisions.

I'm mid south, so we'll maintain gun rights, and I doubt we'll get BS laws. Either way I'll spend my time in a small close knit community I already interact with and I won't have to worry about any of the insanity.

I wonder how long it will be before they implement a finger buy-back program?


Sometimes I have to buy back the tips via superglue when I make drunchies.

Tonight worked out, perogies fried with diced country ham and garlic... Knife work went well, but the garlic is a tad overdone.

I'll book it as a win all things considered.

So wait a minute...



Kirchner admitted to making the gun gesture, but said he did so after Klingseisen "gave [him] the finger with both hands."


Why is that not a valid self-defense claim?

If the middle fingers mean # you, using the court's logic, Kirchner had every right to believe that he was being threatened with sexual assault.

By the way, the supreme Court has actually said that middle fingers are okay. I doubt this appeals court ruling would stand if it gets appealed again.

I can't even believe i'm saying this, but that is a truly valid explanation.
He thought he might be raped, so he showed he was conceal carry!

I bow to your superior wisdom.

Did anyone ever say if the finger was even loaded?

Well, now we know. WW III will be fought with hand signals.

They'll have to prove it was a 'finger gun' first...

"17 people have already been transported to nearby hospital wards for trauma suffered by a lone finger gun man discharging his finger gun into a crowd of mall patrons. Police are saying at this time there may be more casualties, but they will not have an exact count until the crime scene is checked for survivors. WWBS has learned from neighbors of the finger gun man that he has a history of using his fingers in threatening ways, including posting a picture of a "thumbs-up" on his Facebook page, which looks surprisingly like a hand grenade.

"Hand grenades are prohibited. Authorities are looking into where the 24 year old finger gun man may have acquired the hand grenade.

"Sources say the finger gun man simply walked into the mall and began firing his finger gun at random people. We now go to reporter Full A. Baloney on scene. Full, can you hear me?

"I hear you. It is chaos here. Everywhere you can hear the sounds of victims crying, many curled up in a fetal position. Police have cordoned off the area until they can ensure that everyone hurt gets the mental treatment they so desperately need. I have a woman with me who was lucky enough to escape a direct hit from the finger gun. Maam?

"Oh, it was terrible! He just walked in and started firing his finger gun. And he was laughing at the people as they scattered! I don't know how many people were hurt... my husband was with me when it started, but we got separated and I don't know if he's alive, or... or..."

"That's OK; we don't need to hear any more. Good luck on finding your husband. Back to you, Dina Know."

"Thank you Full, and please let that poor lady know we are all praying for her at this terrible time. We have just learned that the finger was acquired legally, police say, about 24 years ago. Apparently it was a gift from his parents, which was legal at the time. No word yet on whether this is a loophole in the law that will be addressed in coming weeks, but we are hearing reports that several protests are planned already to address the issue of unlicensed fingers."

(I'm sorry guys, but really... I can't stop laughing!)

I, for one, will exploit this new arms market.

I'm going to design a rail attachment for the human index finger. So people can mount red dots/reflex sights or lasers or even lights to their new "assault fingers".




Don't forget the bump stock

If owning a gun is protected by the Second Amendment shouldn’t display of your finger gun be protected by the First? It’s a free speech issue.

My finger gun is registered, and is totally legal to carry, so I'm not too worried about it. I don't go around brandishing it or anything, but when the time comes, I got it right by my side.
