Gun Goes Off at Giant Eagle. What’s the REAL Crime?


This excerpt from Mike Hasche at the Trib (WPXI News Partner) kind of says it all:

Two people suffered superficial wounds from what appeared to be pieces of ceramic tile when a gun accidentally discharged as it hit the floor of a Giant Eagle in Richland.

The owner of the gun, who was “very upset and apologetic to the victims,” was charged with simple assault and reckless endangerment, a criminal complaint states.

Mike’s Full Story     WPXI Story

This story had a good ending, THANKFULLY, in that nobody was injured and no animals were tortured for the story.  That, leaves it open for posting here as jagoffery.

So, let us start the debate right here, right now!  Let’s get REAL!  Do guns kill people or do people with guns kill people?

Wait! No, that’s not right.

The REAL debate here is, “Should  a Man (or anyone for that matter) Where a Fanny Pack?

I mean, MAYBE if you needed something (back in the 1980s) to put your Kennywood ride tickets in, or your rolled up dollar bills that you specifically saved for Potato Patch Fries, chap stick, neosporin, bandaids and your Nokia flip phone, (you know, the phone where the only game on it was SNAKE).  Other than being at a retro Halloween party and or having a disability that requires you to have one, we can find no reason, that is not criminal, to be seen wearing a fanny pack.  I mean, get yourself a back pack and carry on one shoulder for cryin’ aht lahd!

Hey Fanny-pack Fred, yes, you should have been more responsible at securing your properly permitted weapon, but GEEZ…why do you even have a gun?  Nobody wants to steal your neosporin, bandaids OR your FANNY PACK, Ya Jagoff!

It’s MLK Day- Get Free Shipping! (Huh?)

Today we honor Dr. Martin Luther, Jr – a man strong in mind, heart and soul.   And how do some retailers do it?  FREE SHIPPING SITE WIDE!!!  The good Dr. King.. how could he NOT be proud!

What will you do today?  Will you sleep in?  Will you head to the local mall or electronics store for a sale?  Will you head to Seven Springs for a long weekend of skiing (just like Dr. King would have) and imbibing at the Foggy Goggle or will you head to some place like the library to learn more, or teach your kids more, about WHY we honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. today?

Sure, you’ll be TEMPTED to relax today and catchup on DVR’d programs and DIY home projects.   If it’s above 40 degrees, a lot of you will spend 90-minutes in a car wash line to get the road salt residue off.

At least take a few minutes to talk about Dr. King and remember, this is NOT just a day to go get a discount on a new car, cheap linens at Sears, half off  a new washer/dryer, sleep in, do work on the house or get drunk.  (You’ve heard us say this before about Memorial Day.)

And for those of you NOT doing anything to reinforce WHY most of us have the day off today, for CRISSAKES, let’s at least say the whole name.  It’s not MLK Day, it’s Martin Luther King, Jr Day.  Yes!  It’s even more important than your daily Consol – (con-SAWL or CON-soool) argument.

If you’re spending your day off at the mall, tallying up discounts and making fun of someone different than you, you’re missing the whole reason behind why you have today off, Ya Jagoffs!
