David Spade can now check this off his Christmas list: 300 rifles.

The funnyman. 44, stopped by a police station in his former hometown of Phoenix on Monday morning to present a check for $100,000 toward the purchase of rifles for patrol officers, the police department says in a statement.

The donation helps fund a program being coordinated by Phoenix Police Chief and Public Safety Manager Jack Harris and Phoenix Law Enforcement Association President Officer Mark Spencer.

This is at least the second time he’s done this.

At first, when I read the headline, I thought it was in reference to the gun buyback programs, and thought he was a jerk.

But if he’s giving the money directly to better arm the police, he’s quite possibly one of those secret Republicans that we hear live in Hollywood.

He’s on at least I looked as being a Republican.

However, I think a good clue might be that he cut a cheque himself, as opposed to demanding tax increases.

He once defended himself by letting an attacker know he had a shotgun.

Every major manufacturer has a LE/MIL division for such things.

They’ll get them fairly quickly.

I'm a bit confused as to why everyone's missed the fact that not only was this post @ gopthedailydose was unsourced, but that it's 2008 news.
David Spade Donates $100,000 to Phoenix Police Department for New Rifles - Phoenix - News - Valley Fever

The pertinent comment there:

"So...why does a civilian police department need 100 "rifles"? The ignorant here are conveniently skipping the fact that "rifles" means "AR15s"...as well as the fact that you have all been bamboozled: This happened in Dec 2008.
http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/valleyfever/2008/12/david_spade_donates_100000_to.php
If you're truly conservative, Amy, you need to get your $hit together; an unsourced post hinting at? with no commentary on your part is intended for what purpose?
Ask the deeper question: Why is a Hollywood 'actor' buying 'assault rifles' way back in 2008 for the Phoenix police? Is there a little problem down there? Say, a little border problem? A little cross-border violence? Say, an unsecure border? Recall, again, this was 2008; our government is now kicking the can on border security. So, ignorantly post/type all you want...the unreported facts behind this little story deserve better scrutiny than we'll EVER see from the biased media. Fast n Furious was a symptom of a much, much larger problem; that's been conveniently ignored (nothing to see here)."

He’s been around for a pretty long time. He’s been in the movies Tommy Boy, Black Sheep, Joe Dirt, and some others. He used to be on SNL, and now he’s on Rules of Engagement. All mostly low brow humor.

to use ebonics...for no particular reason...

MY BAD!

I am guilty once again of skimming...instead of reading...

I thought he was paying for cash for guns to get guns off the street.

Why not try to read the article before you jump to conclusions and make a stupid comment.

The only thing about this article I disagree with is use of the word “funnyman.” Spade is not funny....IMHO of course.
