!! OMG, The New York Times has had it! Runs cover demanding gun control for US in first front-page editorial since 1920 !!

(CLICK TO ENLARGE!)

The paper is calling on all Americans to unite in anger against “the elected leaders whose job is to keep us safe but who place a higher premium on the money and political power of an industry dedicated to profiting from the unfettered spread of ever more powerful firearms.”

It has been many decades since The Times ran an editorial on Page One. We do so today to deliver a strong and visible statement of frustration and anguish about our country’s inability to come to terms with the scourge of guns. Even in this digital age, the front page remains an incredibly strong and powerful way to surface issues that demand attention. And, what issue is more important than our nation’s failure to protect its citizens?

!! OMG, what? Me, worry?! It’s the open-carrying, pro-gun picture book for KIDS! !!

s035989529.jpg
Ever wanted to make your kids feel “more safe” before bed-time? Well now there’s My Parents Open Carry, a picture book that can teach them how to be a open-carrying, gun enthusiasts even earlier!

The picture-book follows a “typical Saturday running errands and having fun together” for 13-year-old Brenna Strong and her parents, say the authors. “What’s not so typical is that Brenna’s parents lawfully open carry handguns for self-defence.”
My Parents Open Carry is, say the authors, “written in the hope of providing a basic overview of the right to keep and bear arms as well as the growing practice of the open carry of a handgun”, because “we fear our children are being raised with a biased view of our constitution and especially in regards to the 2nd Amendment”.
“Our goal was to provide a wholesome family book that reflects the views of the majority of the American people, ie, that self-defence is a basic natural right and that firearms provide the most efficient means for that defence,” they write. “Most kids aren’t scared of a gun … that’s another good point this book tries to make.”

First of all… that IS a good point! Come at us, bro! Kids ain’t scared! Second… THAT DAD ON THE COVER! … I mean, GURRRRL! Who you finna try with those eyes? That gun ain’t gonna protect you from THE TRUTH!
I guess we aren’t the only ones who find this concept ridiculous. The comment section for this book on Amazon is being punk’d harder than Rachel Ray‘s ‘Late Night Bacon’ recipe!

“This started out as a 5 Star rating, but quickly went downhill as the evening progressed,” wrote another. “After saying our prayers to Jesus and Charlton Heston, I sat on the edge of my kids’ bed to read them this book, when I shifted my position and accidentally set off my 9mil that was strapped to my hip, shooting myself in the thigh.”

!! OMG, way to tug on our heart-strings! Archie Andrews will meet his fate while saving his gay friend In ‘ARCHIE’ comic book series !!

Will Archie Andrews die today?! According to Jon Goldwater, co-Ceo of Archie Comics — YES!

The famous freckle-faced comic book icon is meeting his demise in today’s (Wednesday’s) instalment of Life with Archie when he intervenes in an assassination attempt on Kevin Keller, Archie Comics‘ first openly gay character. Andrews’ death, which was first announced in April, will mark the conclusion of the series that focuses on grown-up renditions of Andrews and his Riverdale pals.

Archie Andrews will die taking a bullet for his gay friend Kevin Keller! And the subtext is laid on THICK!

“The way in which Archie dies is everything that you would expect of Archie,” said Jon Goldwater, Archie Comics publisher and co-CEO. “He dies heroically. He dies selflessly. He dies in the manner that epitomizes not only the best of Riverdale but the best of all of us. It’s what Archie has come to represent over the past almost 75 years.”

Keller‘s character first joined Veronica Lodge, Betty Cooper, Jughead Jones and Reggie Mantle in the Archie Comics spin-off Veronica in 2010. He later appeared in his own solo title. In Life with Archie, Keller is a married military veteran and newly elected senator who’s pushing for more gun control in Riverdale after his husband was involved in a shooting.

Archie dies, Riverdale is reborn.”

As sad as we are about the whole dying part — we give a big YES to all of this in terms of the message they’re attempting to send. We think it’s great that not only will the comic tackle gun-control issues (which obviously needs to be heavily addressed at this particular moment in time in the US) but also the camaraderie and strong gay-straight alliance between the friends.

“We wanted to do something that was impactful that would really resonate with the world and bring home just how important Archie is to everyone,” said Goldwater. “That’s how we came up with the story line of saving Kevin. He could have saved Betty. He could have saved Veronica. We get that, but metaphorically, by saving Kevin, a new Riverdale is born.”

RIP Archie!
