Skip to comments.Brady Campaign:"Everyone's As Stupid As We Are"

So now get this story, BradyBot Chairthing Heidi Yewman decided to 'prove' how easy it is to get and carry a firearm even for ignorant, stupid people. So, being ignorant and stupid, she does so.
Tony told me a Glock doesnt have an external safety feature, so when I got home and opened the box and saw the magazine in the gun I freaked. I was too scared to try and eject it as thoughts flooded my mind of me accidentally shooting the gun and a bullet hitting my son in the house or rupturing the gas tank of my car, followed by an earth-shaking explosion. This was the first time my hands shook from the adrenaline surge and the first time I questioned the wisdom of this 30-day experiment.
She's seen to many movies and read to many Brady press releases although assuming the gun was loaded is one of the '4 Rules'.
I needed help. I drove to where a police officer had pulled over another driver. Now, writing this, I realize that rolling up on an on-duty cop with a handgun in tow might not have been fully thought through.Yeah, she needs mental help if she has a panic attack even seeing a gun w/ a magazine in it.
I told him I just bought a gun, had no clue how to use it. I asked him to make sure there were no bullets in the magazine or chamber. He took the magazine out and cleared the chamber. He assured me it was empty and showed me how to look. Then he told me how great the gun was and how he had one just like it.
The cop thought I was an idiot and suggested I take a class. But up to that point Id done nothing wrong, nothing illegal.
Most people probably think she's an idiot w/o it having anything to do w/ firearms.
The gun makes me more fearful than I could have imagined.
In some way, I feel a certain vindication. I was right to protest Starbucks policy. Today, they have a woman with absolutely no firearms training and a Glock on her hip sitting within arms reach of small children, her hands shaking and adrenaline surging.Which just increases the likelyhood of something happening.
2) Something. Her ignorance and stupidity will prove her right. She'll have a negligent discharge, possibly hurting someone, but she'll be vindicated as she deals w/ all the legal ramifications of her negligence.
“The cop thought I was an idiot”
And if he had read this article, he would be proven correct.
He was correct.
The scary thing is how many chemicals she legally has in her house, and if she isn’t storing them right, that little one she mentioned could end up poisoned.
I think someone should call CPS and tell them that a lunatic is around endangering children.
You definitely should get out of the way if you see her mowing her lawn. God knows what she could do with those rotating mower blades.
In fact, I hope she has no power tools at all. She probably shouldn’t be allowed to buy real knives or scissors either. Stick with blunt children’s stuff. Safer for all of us.
She says “Getting the permit to carry a concealed weapon was simple. I filled out a form, had my fingerprints taken for a background check and paid $56.50. No training required. It took far longer to get my dog a license.”
I can’t believe that is true. How bad is getting a dog license? Don’t you just show them the proof of shots, and pay a fee?
It is funny how she conflates her ignorance with a legal issue. I don’t have any of that training, but I could buy a gun and use it. Of course, I grew up in a country where I was allowed to play with toy guns, and I play with paintball guns and airsoft guns, and I was in the boy scouts so I shot a rifle in my day.
If I actually bought a gun, I’d go to a range, take a class, and practice, because I would want to make sure I could hit something if I had to. Not because the government required me to.
works for me....
