The real horror here is that the money that they raise will be used to train children how to effectively hit things with blunt objects.


You know, things similar to hammers, clubs, and baseball bats.

Blunt objects were used to murder 496 people in 2011 - including children - that's 1.5 times as many people as were murdered with ALL rifles combined - including "Assault Rifles".

That's right, for every 10 people murdered with rifles, 15 were murdered with blunt objects similar to baseball bats.

Worse still, these "Assault Bats" can be bought at virtually any variety or sporting goods store, with NO background check, NO waiting period, and NO age restriction - if a child is old enough to lay money on the counter, he or she can walk out with one of these killing machines - no questions asked.

Isn't it time we had a rational discussion about Little League?

Stop the madness.

Write your Congressmen, people.

Benjamin Orr: But can we please stop this bullshiat about how the sound of a pump action makes criminals shiat their pants and run away?

every house I've ever fled from while burglarizing has been because I heard the distinctive KA-CHAK! and decided to hightail it out of there. I've never stuck around to see if the person was just bluffing with an unloaded shotgun. Anecdotal, I know, but it's 100% effective.

They could raffle off a ticket on a cruise liner very similar to the Titanic that killed 1500 people in the North Atlantic

Yeah, make sure it gets into the hands of a nice drunkard or an uptight office worker.

I heard literacy leads to violence. Look how many of the school shooters took English classes.

Adolf Oliver Nipples: semiotix: The problem is that they're using a Little League for maximum gun-trolling and attention-whoring. It's been a few months, and not enough people were pissing their pants about guns, so some people who enjoy and/or profit from seeing that happen decided to use some 8-to-12-year-olds as an excuse to gin up some media attention.

No, it's more like they're using the interests of a rural area to make money for the team. Fundraisers are like that.

Not everything is trolling and attention-whoring. Gun raffles are very popular where I live. They wouldn't be popular in New York City.  Then again, what kind of fundraiser would be popular in New York City right now?

Large sodas?

willfullyobscure: 'm pretty consistent about wanting to ban AR-style guns. they are out loud crappy tech, fashion statement toy guns, with no real value, and only designed to give the user a tactical hard on.

Also, the single longest consistently used military firearm.

willfullyobscure: n. They are antithetical to common sense, actual knowledge about firearms and the great firearm traditions of this country,

The fark?

willfullyobscure: we don't need a CIVILIAN paramilitary gun culture

Yes, the government and police departments should be the sole arbiter of a gun culture.

willfullyobscure: This isn't a legal decision, its a cultural one.

And you should not be the arbiter of my culture. It is OK if you wish to opt out, I would think no less of you. I merely request the same level of respect.

willfullyobscure: So don't blame me when the open carry tards and the hurr durr imma tactical dude assholes manage to frighten the rest of the country into taking your guns away, You could have had them if you kept your traps shut and didn't act like complete tacti-tard rejects from life and wave your gun penises in everyone's face.

I agree with your reasons, and disagree with your suggestion that they qualify for the revocation of rights.

willfullyobscure: So leave me and the 99 million other responsible gun owners alone, and cry in your beer, tacti-idiots.

Herpa Derpa Fudd, random suggestion concerning your preferred methods of fornication with various fauna, and other things which would be appropriate for a response to your last statement.

/unless that was a troll... in which case, brilliant!

If the little league team raffled off baseball bats there are survivors of those victems too.

We're all just feeding the attention whores.

arentol: If the kids benefit and nobody is harmed, then what is the problem exactly?

The problem is you are taking what is supposed to be the scapegoat for all of our nations suffering and casting it in a positive light.
That ruins the rest of the narrative.

o.k. subby.... the "problem" is that it looks sorta, kinda, maybe like a gun that was used in a crime somewhere else?

Why, exactly is this a problem for another group of people in another place and time? We don't demonize every bartender in town every time someone gets a DUI? Why should every gun owner be demonized for the actions of one lunatic?

The more liberals persist in acting like gun owners are trafficking in kiddie pr0n and ought to be ashamed of themselves and go hide in the basement; the sillier and less relevant you become.
