I said no onions, dammit! [UPDATE]

Wrong burger orders lead to shot being fired at Grand Rapids McDonald’s

GRAND RAPIDS, MI — After receiving a series of incorrect burger orders, police say a Grand Rapids woman became verbally abusive and fired one pistol round into a McDonald’s.

The altercation took place around 3 a.m. Monday, Feb. 10, at the McDonald’s in the 400 block of 28th Street SE, according to Lt. John Bylsma.

She got a wrong burger in the drive-through and called to complain. They gave her a free burger, but when she went to get it, they got it wrong again. So she got into it with the employee.

Then, apparently, the passenger in the car shot at the building.

No one was hurt. They had her number from the call, so the police took her and the passenger into custody.

UPDATE: Grand Rapids woman to be arraigned in McDonald’s shooting:

Court records indicate Grand Rapids resident Shaneka Monique Torres, 29, is scheduled for video arraignment by Grand Rapids District Court Judge Kimberly A. Shaefer this afternoon.

Torres is charged with carrying a concealed weapon, discharge of a firearm in or at a building, and using a firearm for a felony, all stemming from an incident on Monday, Feb. 10, at a Grand Rapids-area McDonald’s restaurant.

No-Gun Signs are ‘Disturbing’ to School Officials

Via Instapundit, who writes


No Guns Allowed
No Guns Allowed

While complying with state law isn’t a point of contention, some school administrators find the sticker’s image to be a bit alarming.

“One of my biggest concerns as a principal is safety and security,” Tinley Park High School Principal Theresa Nolan said. “It is bothersome to have to post a sticker of a gun that says, ‘Hey, folks, leave your guns at home.’

“I would have appreciated something more subtle, yet still recognizable — a logo, perhaps, not a gun,” she said

She’s worried that parents will think that the new no-gun signs mean guns used to be allowed. And that seeing the image of the gun will remind people of Sandy Hook.

Seriously. Murdoc’s not making that up.

Huge British Retailer won’t sell shooting magazines to kids under 14

WH Smith bans under 14s from buying shooting magazines despite no age restrictions on owning guns

WH Smith has banned children from buying magazines about shooting – even though it is legal for them to own a gun.

Britain’s biggest newsagent has introduced an over-14s limit on all copies of country sports magazines following a campaign by animal rights activists.

Kids can still buy automotive magazines even though they can’t drive.

It’s almost like it doesn’t make any sense.

What a great OpEd

Obviously, a site like GunPundit is going to support Magpul’s decision to move out of Colorado after a law banning the sale or transfer of magazines holding more than 15 rounds was signed by the Governor last month. And poking fun at the idiots who passed such a law or those that support it is part and parcel to Murdoc’s role.

Even so, this opinion piece by Rick Tosches in the Denver Post seems, well, sort of deranged:
Tosches: Go ahead, Magpul. Move. Wyoming seems nice.

Is that what passes for an opinion in the Denver Post?

Please let this be from The Onion

President Obama Falsely Claims Fast and Furious Program “Begun Under the Previous Administration”

Asked about the Fast and Furious program at the Univision forum on Thursday, President Obama falsely claimed that the program began under President George W. Bush.

“I think it’s important for us to understand that the Fast and Furious program was a field-initiated program begun under the previous administration,” the president said. “When Eric Holder found out about it, he discontinued it.”

Fast and Furious began in October of 2009. Fact.
