First, the Air Force (aka Chair Force by the 2 AF vets I know...) failed miserably - literally did not do their job.

Consistently, it seems.

I've got nothing...

The best comment on this went something like this:

Media can't show it's ignorance of guns any more than it already has. USA Today: Hold my Chainsaw Bayonet.

I'm not sure if it is more sad that USA Today included chainsaw bayonets in the video, or that they actually exist...

The end of the article is actually pretty funny:

Quote
Is it practical? Nope. Is it popular? Not really. Is it definitely a gag for gun enthusiasts? Yes. Should you be worried about a mass shooter with a chainsaw? You have no reason to be. Have you ever heard of it prior to the USA Today tweet? Probably not.

Is USA Today guilty of fear-mongering vis-a-vis a definitely obscure rifle accessory? Yep.

But that doesn’t mean USA Today is wrong. Chainsaw bayonets may be obscure, and they may mostly be a joke, but they exist.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some online orders to make.

Perfect accessory to my deer or hog hunting rifle - how many times have you climbed into a tree to set up a stand and had to fight branches all the way...??  Always have to carry a folding brush saw with me - this would eliminate the need for another piece of hardware.

Suicidal? Depressed? Here, have a gun and a uniform!

Tattooes and piercings are just another form of self-mutilation.  

Also proscribed Biblically...



Let's see how many jump on this one...!

So here we had an unstable individual no one did a damned thing about well in advance of this incident.  This is a failure of our mental health system as well as a failure to put the safety of the general public ahead of the civil rights of the mentally ill.

We can keep talking about gun control all we want, but it would have made no difference with this guy.  He should have been on lock down a long time ago it appears.

This was what was going on at a friend's neighborhood with Mark Allen Eaton, the clown I have talked about in the past - shooting around in the yard for over a year, then trying to kill the two kids across the street, then pleading guilty and getting his good buddies in the Tim Harris DA office to find a judge to NOT accept the guilty plea.  And then he keeps shooting from time to time in the back and front yard of his house.  He used an assault weapon, too, and a Glock.  But since there is only a note in the record admonishing him to be a good boy, he can STILL own a firearm! 

It's good to have friends in the swamp!

Exactly the kind of 'FAIL' that leads to this type event.

It looks like he is in the area much less than previously, but left a couple of his buddies there to keep his place....

I did see his truck one time had a "NOTW" sticker on the back window, so he now hides behind the premise of repentance.  But that is obviously just for show because he hasn't bothered to even talk to the family and at least apologize for attempted murder of the kids.
