Gun Fetishists

Bring Your Guns

A Republican state representative in Ohio is forgoing the backyard barbeque and holding a “machine gun social” instead.

“This is a nice event,” state Rep. Ron Maag (R-OH) told the Cincinnati Enquirer for an article published on Tuesday. Scheduled for Oct. 23 at a nature center, his fundraiser will let people as young as teenagers shoot machine guns with the presence of an instructor, the paper reported. [...]

“People need to understand. There’s doctors, there’s lawyers, there’s businessmen and women, there were judges, there were superintendents of schools,” he said.

It doesn’t actually make me feel better to know that doctors, lawyers, judges, and school superintendents will be at the event. It only makes me question their impartiality, competence and sanity.
