Congratulations, Tami Dee Bachart! You Are Our 2nd Amendment Hero Du Jour

Hey, y’all! Sorry for the long absence. My computer got FUBAR’d and then I was too busy to get back to blogging. I see you all managed without me, however!

There was so much GunFAIL while I was gone — including our own little bizarre “theater shooting” incident here in Nashville (which was really just a mentally ill homeless person with a fake gun and fake hatchet doing a fake attack, and can we find out if the fact that he had a fake gun meant our system worked or was just dumb luck? No?). But by far this item has to be my utmost favorite GunFAIL incident of the past week, and I’m sorry, it’s even better than the Karmadillo:

Bachart admitted that on Dec. 2, 2014, she sent a package with a loaded Ruger Blackhawk .357 revolver and ammunition into the mail at a post office in McCall. The package was sent to an address in Windsor, Connecticut.

While in route to Connecticut, the package arrived at a processing and distribution center in Springfield, Massachusetts. When a U.S. Postal Service employee picked up the package, the gun discharged. The employee was not seriously injured, but sought medical attention for ringing ears and stinging hands.

When the police officers opened the package, they found the loaded revolver with additional ammunition and other items.

Yes, sending a loaded gun through the U.S. mail is so responsible, you guys! Also, really illegal!

For this colossal act of sheer stupidity Ms. Bachart was ordered to serve one year of probation, perform 200 hours of community service, and pay $4,400. Way to lay the hammer down, I must say. She’s no doubt learned her lesson! Gunz is dangeruz!

Dumbass.

    But it wasn’t a gun. She was exercising her second amendment right to use an unconventional bacon fryer.

    This is too close for me. Windsor is the next town over from mine, had the package arrived at its address.

  5. Went looking for a pic of Ms. Tami, to make sure that she was white. Couldn’t find one, but I did find this:

    A bunch of “gunz expurtz” in the thread, blaming the USPS, saying it couldn’t have happened that way, etc.,. They throw the gal under the bus too, but one writer claims that she didn’t violate any federal laws–odd, that, she was convicted and sentenced in a FEDERAL court.

    • Right, when facts conflict with ideology, the facts are always wrong. Ted Nugent said it’s a lie that little kids are shooting themselves and others, too. I guess every newspaper in America is lying.

      • In the last two days there have been two mass shootings since Friday; one in Texas, body count 8; the second in Vermont, body count 5–a total of 8 children. Mental illness, just garden variety rage, whatever. Common denominator, gunz.

      • The Texas story is really sad. If the guy had been Muslim they’d have called it an “ISIS-inspired attack.” Since he was just your garden variety misogynist, it’s just another one of those unavoidable things.

  7. Well, he was teh blah, so the mooslimterrarist angle is still a possibility…

    Between the two I mentioned and your post above, that’s 15 or 16 people dead in three incidents–I wonder how many we don’t even hear about.
