Some whacko on the internet is making threats against schools in Austin (presumably my university, UT-Austin) for tomorrow, using language copied from the Oregon shooter.

In all likelihood, this is some asshat doing a stupid prank. But many of my friends have been thinking about how important it really is to go to class tomorrow, and it's frustrating to have to think about that.

It really bothers me that, where I live, a weapon to senselessly slaughter dozens of people essentially for media attention is easily accessible to just about anyone. And that people have to take these sorts of threats as though they have some amount of credibility, because we know that individuals are capable of performing these massacres.

Charming . I remember kids making similar phony prank threats at my school after Columbine. 'Cause nothing says "funny prank idea" like a bunch of students being murdered!

Hoping it's just someone being a massive idiot in your case, too.

Wait, Marine Todd isn't real? Well crap.
*takes down Marine Todd poster*
*takes off Marine Todd shirt*
*tears off Marine Todd bumper sticker*

Ok, but seriously, I'm pretty right wing. But that Marine Todd stuff is the some of the funniest stuff I've ever read.

Sounds like a good idea to me:

Gun control advocates call for ousting Oregon sheriff over Sandy Hook conspiracy video

Also, from the article:

Quote:
Another local, Carolyn Kellim, who runs a gun shop out of her home, proudly described Douglas County as “hunting country,” adding that gun control would be "the worst thing in the world that can happen.”
Well. That's just great . How exactly is that even legal?
