If you’re at all like me — which, for your emotional maturity and general mental health I certainly hope is not the case — you obsessed a lot with weapons as a wee lad. As in, a lot. Sure most kids had some nunchucks lying around, and perhaps the occasional throwing star (sure to correct […]

Surely a more positive geek & firearm combo than Columbine

Sometimes nerds and firearms don’t mix so well. The results can be messy.
