The NRA is in the midst of constantly re-branding itself, as is necessary when you’re the most powerful gun lobbying group in a nation where everyone, including children, are constantly murdering each other with guns. Honestly, though, this two-month-old ad, part of a series on how brave and tough Americans are: It’s …
After a deeply embarrassing try for the presidency, Chris Christie has returned to his job pissing off the people of New Jersey, which he does by utilizing his unique, innate, God-given ability to be a real asshole. On Monday, for the second time, Christie vetoed a bill that would have kept domestic abusers from…

The solution came to me while watching the evening news: guns. I’d heard of people doing fire walks, beating pillows with baseball bats—even taking hallucinogens in the Peruvian rainforest. But I needed something more potent than an Amazonian shaman could provide.
It’s a sad and sour realization, to know that you’ve aged and tattooed yourself out of your dream job, but that is the sad place many of us find ourselves today: we cannot be greeters at the National Rifle Association Expo in Lousville. Even if you’re not too old or too fat, you’re probably too odd for the job. Take a…
The new Vanity Fair profile on Amy Schumer, written by Bruce Handy, is fairly unremarkable (unless, like me, you’re shocked that a national publication would use the word “comedienne” and feign shock over a female comic working blue in 2016)—that is, until Schumer opens up about the tragic movie theater shooting that…
On Saturday, April 16, a Philadelphia man fatally shot his four-year-old daughter after wildly waving around a loaded gun in a small bedroom where seven children were present.

The Secret Service has been forced to tell everybody that no, they won’t allow guns on the floor of the Republican National Convention this July.

Jamie Gilt, a 31-year-old Jacksonville, Florida woman, was shot with a legally-purchased gun by her four-year-old son on Tuesday. Authorities found her in the driver’s seat of a truck by the side of a road; her son was sitting in the back seat.
On Monday evening’s Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, Bee took on the cottage industry dedicated to teaching children how to fight back during school shootings. This is the wrong approach, she sensibly pointed out.
Late last year, Texas passed Senate Bill 11 which officially allows students to carry concealed weapons on campus. The bill, which goes into effect on August 1, has already had a dampening effect on campuses: Earlier this month, the president of the Faculty Senate at the University of Houston warned professors not to…
