here is a kitty. we hope it makes the gun thing a bit easier to tolerate.


We at Wonkette are sad to tell you about the deaths of two teenagers, Casey Marquez and Paco Fernandez. They were students at Aztec High School in Aztec, New Mexico, until last week when they were killed by a former student.

William Atchison, 21, planned to kill a bunch of people. He managed two before killing himself. He'd have gotten more, only a substitute teacher had done enough active shooter drills that she got all the kids in the computer lab into the adjoining office and barricaded the door before the shooter could get to them.

The gun was legally purchased by the shooter. There was one gun and multiple magazines. The shooter had been investigated by the FBI for saying stupid shit online. This was planned, and not for revenge so much as because the shooter wanted to die and take people with him.

This was the fifty-seventh school shooting of 2017. 57th.

There have been 57,894 shooting incidents in America this year. That's 14,602 deaths and 29,583 injuries, although those numbers might be outdated because this is Monday and we don't know whether the Gun Violence Archive updates every business morning or not. If you assume that each news story takes two hours to write and that each writer was working 40-hour weeks, any single news outlet would need to employ more than 14 writers full-time to cover all the shooting deaths, were each victim given their own story.

The GOP has recently been pushing legislation that would make concealed carry permits transferable across state lines, meaning that someone who's licensed in Ohio would be legally allowed to carry concealed weapons in any state. It has already passed the House.

You can donate to the funeral funds for the two students who were killed, because in America we don't have social programs to cover funerals for victims of gun violence and funerals are expensive. Casey Marquez's family is using YouCaring and Paco Fernandez's family is using GoFundMe.

And now for some very serious TUT TUTTING! It's time again for Republicans to make sad words about President Treason McTraitorpants selling out the country. This time they are seriously concerned, nay even deeply troubled, that Donald Trump would stand next to Vladimir Putin and pretend the Russians didn't hack the 2016 election. These patriotic Republicans are shocked, SHOCKED! Well, not, like, upset enough to do anything about it -- not with a fascist carpooler to jam into the Supreme Court. But they've got tweets, so it's all good!

Republicans are in a pickle. Midterms are coming up and the party in the White House usually loses seats in those elections. It doesn't help their chances that their guy Donald Trump frolics through fields holding hands with self-made Russian dictator and coincidental poisoner Vladimir Putin, who our own justice department believes attacked our mostly free elections and our true national monument, the Internet.

If you're as old as I am, you'll recall that back in the 1980s, the whole Republican brand involved not trusting the Ruskies, and they were especially disappointed when Kevin Costner turned out to be one in No Way Out. Now, the current Republican president is talking like some kind of crazy commie lib, bashing the FBI and giving the benefit of the doubt to a former KGB agent. During an interview Sunday where he wore a hat with "USA" in big letters on it, presumably so someone could easily return him if he got lost on the field trip, Trump went so far as to call the European Union a "foe" of his country, which if you believe his hat is supposedly the United States not Russia.
