Las Vegas Sociology Professor (Of Course) Shoots Himself in the Arm to Protest Trump

These people are very sane and should be heeded without question.

A longtime College of Southern Nevada sociology professor is facing felony gun charges in connection with an on-campus shooting on the second day of classes.

Mark J. Bird was charged last month with discharging a gun within a prohibited structure, carrying a concealed weapon without a permit and possessing a dangerous weapon on school property, court records show. He was found bleeding from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his arm about 8:15 a.m. on Aug. 28 outside a bathroom in the Charleston campus K building.

Inside the bathroom, campus police found a $100 bill taped to a mirror along with a note that said, "For the janitor," according to Birdís arrest report. On the floor of the restroom was a black-and-white, .22-caliber pistol and one spent shell casing.

...

While waiting for authorities to arrive, Bird said he had shot himself in protest of President Donald Trump, police noted in their report. The report did not elaborate.

As Thanos said, "You should have gone for the head."

61 You know what's really, ironically funny about this? it's a complete ripoff. An artist named Chris Burden did this back in the 80's. (His premise was weather or not someone would shoot you in the name of art. Of course, the first grad student he asked had no problem pulling the trigger.) He rigged a .22 to shoot through his upper arm. There are some great pictures of him in complete shock after the "project". Burden did some other cool, thought provoking stuff as well.

78 Either a very bad suicide attempt where he had second thoughts and pulled away as he pulled the trigger, or he was playing tough guy to protect himself from the scary white men and dropped the gun and shot himself picking it up.

Then, since these people can admit to no errors, he claimed it was an act of protest.,

118 You know what's really, ironically funny about this? it's a complete ripoff. An artist named Chris Burden did this back in the 80's. (His premise was weather or not someone would shoot you in the name of art. Of course, the first grad student he asked had no problem pulling the trigger.) He rigged a .22 to shoot through his upper arm. There are some great pictures of him in complete shock after the "project".
Posted by: Brave Sir Robin


Definitely an artist. A real student could have researched the Milgram experiments rather than conducting them on himself. (So, Burden was a ripoff also.)

208 OT, but it does relate to the top topic on the right sidebar:

Has anyone noticed that not only Max Boot but also the rest of the NeverAmerica crowd have stopped talking about Israel, now that they're in bed with the Leftists who want a new Holocaust in the Middle East (and will almost certainly succeed in getting one, because they always win on every single issue).

It used to be that Target Frum would point to every divergence from the neoconservative War Party handbook as a clear indication of anti-Israel sentiment, and that as a Jew he objected to that anti-Semitism. Now he implicitly endorses the coming Holocaust through his silence.

Yet real conservatives--not True Conservatives, but the actual real conservatives--continue to be gutless and let these evil swine maintain their actual power. We seriously need to stop our "containment" policy vis a vis the Left, and start talking "rollback." We need to prepare for Civil War II.

To paraphrase Barry Goldwater, I would rather blow America to Kingdom Come than consign in to Hell under Communism.

Final question: it's well known that NeverAmerica's platform is now indistinguishable from the Democrats'. But can anyone find any distinction between David Frum/Bill Kristol/Max Boot, on the one hand, and Antifa on the other?

I didn't think so.

229 Now, four federal law enforcement officials told BuzzFeed News, investigators are focused on two bursts of transactions that bank examiners deemed suspicious: one a short time after the meeting and another immediately after the November 2016 presidential election.

The first set came just 11 days after the June 9 meeting, when an offshore company controlled by Agalarov wired more than $19.5 million to his account at a bank in New York.

The second flurry began shortly after Trump was elected. The Agalarov family started sending what would amount to $1.2 million from their bank in Russia to an account in New Jersey controlled by the billionaire's son, pop singer Emin Agalarov, and two of his friends.

Why exactly would someone be screwing around with a gun in a public

place where even accidentally bringing a gun lands you in a world of
legal trouble.

Because rules don't apply to lefty professors and he had no problem carrying a gun for protection because even if he got caught he would not be charged.


He was messing with the gun when he sat down to do his business because there is nowhere in a public toilet or a store dressing room to put your gun when you have to pull your pants down. Trust me on that. When I go to a store to try on pants I leave my carry gun in the car.

If only we could fairly identify true mental illnesses like homosexuality, body dismorphia, feminist hysteria and liberalism, I could get behind those types of clearances.

Unfortunately, people like these are the ones deciding what constitutes a mental illness.

357 Speaking of guns,

The NRA sent me a sweepstakes letter. Send it back with 3 stickers attached and you have the chance to win a grand prize of 15 guns, $15,000 in gold coins, and a gun safe. They got other prizes too, plus if you turn it in early, you could win 2 Sig Sauer rifles.

I was just listening to the local forecast and reading my cousin's latest forecasts.

Florence is generating 83' waves around the eyewall now.

The track may well pass right over here in Greenville SC. Or it may go farther South. So, great, I may get shit on by Florence's brown eye right overhead.

6"+ rain here looks possible, but cuz, going on about the "upslope" hitting just right and interacting with the mountains someway or another could cause another 100 yr rainfall event. We had one of those back in '95, and I got 13" of rain in 24 hours.

368 I dunno. Now it is true that a favored Mob "murder" gun is a .22--but the pros use two bullets directly against the head.

This guy sounds like a pajama boy. Why was he carrying a .22 on campus (maybe because that was the biggest thing he could lift).

Now if this self inflicted wound was intentional, and not an accident, he should have shot himself in the testicles to make sure he doesn't breed and spawn more idiots.
