I knew that it would be just a matter of time before something like this happened.
"A leading neuroscientist was busted for allegedly pointing an assault rifle at two women in an Arizona airport while on a coffee run.
Peter Nathan Steinmetz, of Tempe, did not think he did anything wrong when he brought the AR-15 to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, according to local media.
The brain scientist for the Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix reportedly had the gun slung over his shoulder while ordering the cup of Joe, which did not cause a problem.
The trouble began after he removed the gun and inadvertently pointed the muzzle at a mother and her 17-year-old daughter, reported the Phoenix News Times.
Phoenix police took issue with "the way he was carrying it," police Sgt. Steve Martos told the paper.
"(B)oth stated they felt in fear of their safety when the rifle was pointed in their direction," the booking sheet said.
Steinmetz was arrested and booked into Maricopa County jail on one count of disorderly conduct with a weapon. [Source]
The guy is a neuroscientist for crying out loud! He is high up on the intelligence chain when it comes to gun owners and he does some dumb crap like this. Typical.
Speaking of the NRA, Mother Jones published a fascinating article about one of their (The NRA's) most influential lawyers and the fact that he just might have gotten away with murder when he was a youngster.
The weapon used in the alleged murder? Why a gun of course.
Finally, I think our friend Bill O'Reilly has finally jumped the shark.
Here is why: Bill believes that President Obama won two national elections because of the machines. No, not the voting machines, the machines, period.
“The voters go and they swallow all of this BS… As far as this country and how it runs, the reason Barack Obama is president for two terms is because of the machines. The machines have portrayed him in a way that isn’t true.”
Ahhm....ahhhm....I am speechless.
If only those ATM machines and lawnmowers had voted for Mitt Romney. Maybe for the next presidential election we can have an independent machine moderate the debates.
The irony is, of course, that Mr. O'Reilly is on one of those machines every night spreading this kind of crap.
Hopefully it will be over soon, us real people can only take so much.
