#1 clearly relying on the Police to arrive in just minutes from making a 911 call. Too bad for her that seconds count.

#2 Across the country today several hundred ARs will probably be bought, but not to be destroyed in a grandstanding and ultimately futile gesture like this one. If the woman had actually wanted to do some good, she could have donated that $400-$1200 to a worthy cause. Aren't we always being told this time of year that "teachers are having to reach into their own pockets" to buy pencils and note paper?

#3 Aren't we always being told this time of year that "teachers are having to reach into their own pockets" to buy pencils and note paper?
Speaking of which in the age of sagging backpacks and crooked schoolbook industry why are the kids not being given a kindle removing the need for a backpack and textbooks or an i-pad with a graphic stylus that removes the need for pencils and paints and paper?
It would be good for the kid's backs too! While at it she could just buy a ipad or e-books for the kids then.

#4 For whatever reason, I just pictured the hag jumping and stomping on the poor gun until it fires accidentally and a slug ricochets into her embittered old ass.

"Oww ! I knew it ! You are a dirty, dirty machine !"

#5 why are the kids not being given a kindle

1.Where's the graft in that?
2.Why stop at public school kids? cause the college racket is even greater.

#6 Re #3. I use a Nook for pleasure reading, it is a relief from shuffling physical books. As for computers in classrooms (if you can call a chromebook a computer) see David Gelernter. Kids don't need computers in school, the need the three Rs (and not what formerly somewhat sane guy turned Never-Trump foamer George Will said, 'Racism recycling and reproduction.')

#7 Prop glasses don't look any more convincing on her than on teevee talking heads or grotesque "tech site" freaks.

#8 Look at those glasses and that face, Kat Timpf. That's you in 30 years...

#11 One way to finally get your fifteen minutes of fame, I guess.

#12 As for the police chief, another grandstander. He could have said "See what's in the daily release to the press." Instead he grandstanded too.

#13 she’d had enough of the AR-15 she’s been storing in her home for a friend, so she decided to purchase it and then destroy it.

I hope her friend overcharged her for the thing.

#14 Storing for a friend. Uh, yeah. A Homak long gun locker is only about $220.00 on Amazon. I don't let anyone else store my socks...

#15 she’s been storing in her home for a friend,

Doesn't that fall under the ATF 'straw-buyer' rule?

#16 This made me think of a program to adopt a Wakandan straight from juvie. Then turn him into a girl.

#17 Hopefully the person she bought it from got enough to purchase 2 AR-15s... and a bit of ammo.
