guns need to be licensed and registered so this doesn’t happen here in the west

Yeah I know. I shouldn’t make light of this brief article I found this morning.
Actually, I not laughing about what happened to these folks. I really don’t think it funny.  Damn bad way to go.
What I found amusing was my own immediate thought, wait til the left reads this story. They will somehow find a way to relate it to the USA and demand gun control and limits. You know the litany.
So I thought I’d post the article which I found in the Telegraph this morning.

Tried calling Drew last night. No success.  Morning papers say most of his home state is without power still. Jeesh.


Celebratory gunfire at a wedding party in eastern Saudi Arabia brought down an electric cable, killing 23.

At the wedding, the cable fell on a metal door and the 23 who died were all electrocuted.  Those killed were all from the same tribe, thirty others were injured.

Saudi Arabia had banned gunfire at weddings, a tradition in tribal areas, a month ago.

  1. In the West we are taught that only a total feces for brains retard shoots a gun into the air.  It is a fundamental of firearms safety that you never pull the trigger unless you are 100% sure of your target and what is down range from you.  We don’t need gun registration, the Saudis need hunter safety classes and training beyond the koala snack bar shit they get at their local madras.  In their country they hand out AK’s to idiots who still wipe their asses with their bare hands and expect rational behavior.  We don’t need to be Saudis, and we don’t need to be Europeans.  We are the luckiest people that ever lived on this planet because we are AMERICANS and different in every way from the rest of the world. Screw your gun grabbing one world nanny state BS and the electric skate board you drove it in with.

  2. Well said Grayjohn. Now if only any of our so called leaders (?) had the balls to say things exactly that way, they’d get my vote hands down.
    Btw, you have my vote for grayjohn for president. 

    You have no idea how damn frustrating it can be to hear things like I did last night on a panel show discussing the use of drones in warfare. One lefty idiot wants us, that is the USA, to be more public about how we use them. Jerk went on and on about how immoral the use was blah,blah. Like we owe the ass-wipe any explanation. One of the panelists, a lady named Melanie Phillips, a very strong conservative writer at the Mail, rounded on the jerk and told him off. Good to hear that.

    Their PM is supposed to be a conservative but I often wonder. I think LyndonB here at bmews referred to him once as Conservative Lite.

  3. Thank you Peiper smile I could be a good dictator, but not a president.  Presidents have to put up with idiots, dictators just have them eliminated.  Drones work well for that...hmmm.

  4. Nomads are the REDNECKS of the Arab world.They use to come into large urban areas In Saudia and rip out the phoned in the booths when they heard the dial tone,thought it was evil magic. If only they had a mountain range to self identify like the Appalachian hillbillies do.

  6. Yeah but Rick K - at least the Appalachian hillbillies know how to properly use a rifle - look at Alvin York for how (and why) most hill people are great in the military - they know what a rifle is for and how to use it. Not to mention able to think on their feet and survive without someone bringing them the ‘stuff’ that they need to survive. Ready made Green Berets or Special Forces - NOT idiots with a gun. Just ‘cuz they don’t know what shoes, tvs are and are extremely distrustful of strangers - doesn’t mean that they aren’t good people.
