UPDATE: There's been a terrorist bombing of an airport in Turkey. Many are dead. Many are wounded.
The Secretary General of the UN (five bucks if you can name him) issued a strongly worded statement condemning the bombing.
Well, that's that. No terrorist organization wants to be strongly condemned by the UN Secretary General. That will surely end the suicide bombing problem. A strongly worded condemnation will surely ruin their day.
There was a shooting at a bar named Grumpys.
So naturally, famed (and often Grumpy) Miami Criminal Defense Attorney Alex Michaels has the case.
Here is the link to the video of the shooting, courtesy of the Miami Herald and David Ovalle (who's never grumpy as long as he has black coffee.)
Trial set for next month.
And because he couldn't resist it, Alex Michaels was quoted as saying "Say hello to my little friend."
Another fun Miami Trial.
Meanwhile, guns don't kill people. People kill people. Guns are every American's natural born right to have and to hold and to cuddle with and sleep with and you're damn well tootin to use for self defense when the bad guys come.
Right all you fervent protectors of the second amendment?
Except when your mother has one and uses it to kill you and your sister because she is deranged. Which is what happened in Texas (naturally) the other day.
And with all those gun toting Texans wandering around with six shooters strapped to their hips, which is their god-given right as Texans and Americans, none of them managed to shoot the house-wife before she murdered her children in the street.
The story is here in case you missed it while re-reading the second amendment.
Yup, what we need is access to more guns, because since terrorists on no-fly lists can buy one or a dozen any weekend, the only way to fix that is make sure the ability to buy a gun gets easier and easier. It certainly didn't stop that woman from getting one and murdering her children.
See you in court.
