I don't usually post dairies whose titles are multiple expletives - but some things are just truly beyond the pale. @Kagro posted this on Twitter minutes ago. I think my eyes need bleach.
(For those whom the Twitter Embed doesn't work)
Is this a joke? Is this a pisstake? Or is this father seriously attempting to Shame his toddler daughter into feeling bad for accidentally shooting herself in the leg with a Glock?
I understand we have gun nuts in this country - but Good GOD DAMN! Anyone who let's a toddler - a Toddler - handle a loaded gun under any circumstances should immediately be getting a knock on the door from child services.
I mean, like damn...
I have no more words.
ok, one word, FUCK.
2:27 PM PT: Someone in comments found a claim by the video author that it is snark, which confirms my original response. It IS a joke, a bad joke - but a joke.
4:57 PM PT: I've had a suggestion to delete the diary and I'm tempted, however - a) there's been some good discussion about some worthwhile subjects and b) claiming that it's only a joke is a great way to avoid any potential liability. Is that claim more or less credible than the worse case scenario? It's not like something like that hasn't occurred - @KagroX has a litany of examples.in his latest #GunFail c) perhaps this should stand as how to Not, NOT NOT make a joke about kids getting shot, whether by accident or on purpose.
It's never funny, not even a little bit.
