A call to police about “shots fired” at a church in eastern Tennessee turned out to be an accidental shooting during a discussion on using weapons to protect the congregation, police say.

Church members say that this is a clear sign that during a shooting event, God probably wants them to shoot each other.

When asked for a comment, God sighed and said, “I’m, look, I’m retired. The Deists are right, I’m working on a new project now, quit asking me about these goofballs on Earth.”

AC/DC co-founder Malcolm Young died today at age 64. And 70s heart-throb David Cassidy was hospitlized in critical condition for organ failure.

Meanwhile, Keith Richards drank a gallon of gasoline and was then run over by a car before playing a full concert.

Richards later plans on letting a shark eat him, “Just to see what happens when I come out the otherside.”

The Трамп regime threatened to close the Washington D.C. office of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) office in Washington. The latest tensions could be a setback for Jared “The Kush” Kushner’s attempt to broker Middle East peace.

The biggest setback for Middle East peace, however, is that the efforts are being led by Jared Kushner.

Donald Трамп said Tuesday “there would have been no difference three days ago” in the deadly Texas shooting if an extreme vetting policy for gun ownership had been in place.

When asked how he knew that, Трамп told reporters, “Because I can see all possible realities! I am the Great Трампini!”

The gunman behind the deadliest mass shooting in Texas history had in-laws who attended the church he targeted. He threatened his mother-in-law by text Sunday morning before his killing spree.

In response to this tragedy, Texas plans to ban texting.

Democratic lawmakers are renewing their calls for gun control, following the largest mass shooting in Texas history. Donald Трамп and other Republicans insisted firearms are not the problem, but instead the problem was mental health.

It turns out most Americans agree with Donald Трамп that not-supporting gun-control is a mental health problem.

————

On the lighter side of things, a federal judge on Monday ordered former Трамп campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Rick Gates to remain under house arrest while wearing GPS trackers. The judge said if they offered up more bail money, they could be allowed to leave their houses.

Reports on the scene said that the Judge denied Manafort’s request to spend the rest of his house arrest at his home in Russia.

Donald Трамп attacked Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) in a series of tweets Sunday, days after Corker publicly criticized him.

“It’s a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning,” Corker wrote.

Aides for Corker say he’s considering a job in the White House’s diaper changing station after he loses his job as Senator.

American Nazi Richard Spencer and a handful of people held another “tiki-torch rally” in Charlottesville, Virginia.

When asked if they were commemorating their organization’s murder of Heather Heyer in August, Spencer replied, “No, this is just a regular hate rally against black people, Latino people, anyone brown.”

It’s unclear at this time when national news media will start simply describing people like Spencer as, “American Nazis.”

————

The National Rifle Association said Sunday it opposes any legislation to ban the use of “bump stocks” on semi-automatic weapons. A bump stock helped an elderly white man murder 58 people in Las Vegas recently.

Rather than focus on gun control, Congress will instead focus on banning birth control for women, because a lot of people in America have lost their minds.

The murderer who killed 59 people and injured 527 others in Las Vegas from his 32nd-floor hotel suite at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino had 23 weapons in the room including a handgun, and multiple rifles with scopes on them.

When asked how someone was able to get 23 weapons into a hotel room, a spokesperson for Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino said, “Well, he was a white guy, so …” before being whisked out of the room.

The people of Puerto Rico are exasperated with Donald Трамп, and expressed anger over how late his arrival has been.

“He’s pretty late,” Bethsaida Colón said Monday as she waited in a wheelchair in line at the airport, bound for New York. “His general came here eight days late.”

A spokesperson for the Трамп regime said, “Important people always come to the party late. New York rule, it’s a common New York rule, people in New York are always late for parties, so, if you want to blame Donald Трамп being late, let’s put the blame where it belongs, it’s New York’s fault that Donald Трамп is late, thank you.”

The spokesperson then burst into flames.

Tom Petty died Monday evening from a heart attack. He was 66 years old.

Donald Трамп called the recent massacre of over 50 people in Las Vegas an “act of pure evil.”

Also an act of pure evil, Congress is about to pass a law making it easier for people who commit mass shootings to buy silencers, but nobody is describing that as such.

Another act of pure evil is allowing the people of Puerto Rico to suffer needlessly.

None of those are punchlines. Sorry.

The man who murdered 50 people and maimed 400 others in a rain of automatic weapons fire from a hotel room in Las Vegas has left his family shocked. There was nothing in his character that indicated a predilication to violence.

I mean, just because you stockpile a bunch of automatic weapons, ammunition, and such, that doesn’t make you dangerous!

In related news, shares of stock from gun manufacturers Storm Ruger (RGR) and American Outdoor Brands (AOBC)  jumped 5% in early trading Monday after the mass shooting in Las Vegas.

Republicans are hopeful that words of sadness will mask their efforts to allow mass shootings and the gun industry to continue to flourish in the United States.

Republican Representative Steve Scalise, who was shot in June at a congressional baseball team practice, returned to Capitol Hill Thursday for the first time. He received a standing ovation and an extended session of applause from members of Congress.

Political observers fully expect him to stay on course to support legislation that will continue to allow other people to be shot. “Why should I be the only one to get thunderous applause after surviving a shooting? Gun control means no applause if you live,” Scaliest told reporters.

In related news, a teenager near my neighborhood was shot in the ankle a few days ago. It’s unclear at this time if Congress plans to applaud the teen’s eventual return to school.

The Трамп Regime announced Thursday that it had waived the Jones Act, a nearly century-old shipping law that doubles the cost of shipping hurricane relief supplies to Puerto Rico.

“At @ricardorossello request, @POTUS has authorized the Jones Act be waived for Puerto Rico. It will go into effect immediately,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted this morning.

Still on the books – deporting children! No sign Трамп is going to budge on that one.

A “fatberg” made up of grease, fat, wet wipes and other garbage that slowly grew in a Baltimore sewer main is the culprit of the release of more than 1 million gallons of sewage into a Maryland stream last week.

Republican House Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), was shot in the hip this morning during a baseball practice with members of Congress. Scalise, a white supremacist who once told supporters that he was “like David Duke without the baggage,” was shot by a middle-aged white male. The male is currently in police custody.

Scalise, a white supremacist who once told supporters that he was “like David Duke without the baggage,” was defended by Capital Police, two of whom were shot. One of the policeman, an African-American officer, apparently shot back at the attacker while wounded in the leg.

Steve Scalise, a white supremacist who once told supporters that he was “like David Duke without the baggage,” is reportedly planning later this week to continue advocating policies which make it easier to get guns and harder to get health insurance once people forget about this incident.

Other Republicans are planning to blame this incident on Democrats, somehow.

————

Have you ever noticed that whenever things like this shooting happen, there’s this almost instant call to, “not politicize the event,” and to, “give it a day or two,” before you can talk about anything, including gun control? Like, it sounds like a decent impulse, but think about it.

Like, someone in my neighborhood was shot a week ago. The rest of the country wasn’t really talking about gun control OR gun ownership in response to it. People in the neighborhood certainly did. That shooting in my neighborhood is still a pretty rare occurrence right now, but it’s not a rare occurrence in the United States. Like, people are being shot all the time, and dying from it. Violence overall is reducing in the United States. However, mass shootings are going up … so, you’re overall less likely to be killed by a gun in the United States than you would have been many decades ago. However, the number of incidents of mass shootings have increased. On top of that, the United States leads among other western nations in number of people killed by gun violence per capita.

But for some reason, the only politicization that’s allowed is Republicans (1) blaming Democrats and (2) saying there’s no need for gun control. Myself, I think it’s well-past the time to stop capitulating to the demand not to talk about shootings and what to do about them. The only thing that attitude serves is to maintain a slowly boiling status quo, where things get a little bit hotter day by day. If we don’t do our parts, eventually, that heat is going to boil over the pot.

Meanwhile, whoever is writing our reality is trying to give us clues. Scalise said that he was like a kinder version of white supremacist David Duke was defended by a black man, someone that Scalise himself, when outside of politie company, would say is a lesser person than he is. The supreme irony is that everyone injured, including the members of Congress, are going to get top-flight health care for their wounds which are thankfully not life-threatening. But if this had happened to the rest of us?

It might be like what happened in my neighborhood, a story that no one else knows or cares about. All of that is such a metaphor for right now that if you saw it in a TV show, you would roll your eyes and change the channel because everything was too heavy handed.

Let’s not change the channel today, okay?

Have you done your part today? If not, take a moment to decide what to do, how you can help, and pitch in! Maybe pitching in for you means telling me I’m dumb, go for it! Whatever it is, make your time count!
