well, he was hung over

To be fair, subby, you're assuming it hit the sidewalk. A rolled up newspaper hitting a loose screen door creates a very loud bang.

When you make newspapers criminal, only criminals will have newspapers.

This is why we cant have nice things!

When will congress pass newspaper legislation?

Wont someone think of the children?!

Thanks Obama!

For those of you who are too young to understand, a newspaper is like a blog, only with yesterday's news and more papery.

How am I supposed to protect myself and my children if I can't own a newspaper?  When you outlaw newspapers, only criminals will have them.  Do you know who else supported taking our newspapers?

There, I think that covers it.

Well to be fair the LAPD thinks they're the same as well.

a newspaper subscription-how quaint. was there a freckled faced paper boy riding a schwinn bike?
/yeah i has a paper route in the early 70's. it built character. get off my lawn.
 
2013-02-21 07:41:11 AM  
See... that's why the LAPD tried to execute those newspaper ladies in that truck.  They confused the women for a big black man and the newspapers for assault rifles with super high capacity clips with explosive cop killer shells.

To be fair, there's an increased chance of gunfire... at colleges with loose screen doors.

/don't...BAM... slam the door
/wood screen doors FTW

I'm going to go out on limb and say that marijuana may have played a part in this.

Can you blame the student? This person has grown up in a culture dominated by pain and violence. Born in the 90's, this student's life has been a short thrill of an economic bubble followed by a decade of economic doldrums and increasing irrelevance of the Bill of Rights. Loud bangs, to this generation, aren't the siren's call of friends banging on trashcans. They are the spectre of death in a hail of bullets.

I wish that this whole past decade were erased like a bad dream. Bad dreams are just dreams. What a time they chose to be born.

No one needs a paper the size of the Sunday edition! Its only purpose is to kill lots of trees.  Ban high-capacity newspapers!

I'm wondering why the newspaper for the panhandle of Florida is reporting on a non-event in the middle of Pennsylvania. Were they tired of reporting pedestrian deaths on 98?

What's a newspaper?
 
2013-02-21 08:23:03 AM  
Now now, there's no need to ban  all newspapers. Just limit the number of words they can contain. Also, we should conduct background checks on those who want to read newspapers, and maybe have a five-day waiting period before you can read one.

Only thing that would have made the headline better would be scare quotes around "newspaper."
 
2013-02-21 08:47:04 AM  
Dumb people go to college too. That piece of paper we earn doesn't guarantee we're smart or capable, just that we graduated. That's it.
 
2013-02-21 08:54:10 AM  
I did the newspapering thing for many years as a teen. I could make The Sunday St. Louis Post-Dispatch sound like the crack of a howitzer when it hit your steps on a quiet summer morn.

Of course, those restrictions won't apply to the government, just the average citizen.

From the Comments:
"David Davis * Top Commenter * Works at Earth (the planet)
Apparently, the left has terrified every college student with their scare tactics in the anti-gun crusade they are pushing, that a newspaper hitting the ground sounds like a gun being shot off to a student inside. We, as a nation are in such deep trouble with this group of weak-minded and sheltered babies that cannot think for themselves and possibly never will, lining up to run this country. Thanks to Obama, and his mind-numbing agenda the Walking Dead are in the WH and Senate."


I remember a time when comments online just called the writer/OP a f*g and moved on. Now every comment thread starts with the derpiest political diatribes known to man. What happened to this country internet?!

Also I think it's great how after 4 years Obama can be blamed for the sheltering and coddling of college-aged snowflakes.

If the college kid had a newspaper this never would have happened.

Did the paperboy break his window? He should paint his house black to show he cancelled the subscription.

Liberals have no idea what a gunshot sounds like.

Came here to ask if this was in LA.
If yes, I don't blame him for getting scared.
