"Family day" the GOP way

Thanks Jarek (again) for sending me this odd information....

As the readers of my blog know already my heart is not with the republican party. Is not entirely with the Dems either, but if I have to choose I would go Democrat. Why? Thousands of reasons... but here is one more, as if I need one more.

From my point of view, a "Family Day" should be something where you spend a good time with your kids and where they can learn something USEFUL not something lethal. Obviously, the party that is all for the "right to bear arms", don't think this way. So....quoting:

BOSTON (Reuters) - A planned Republican fundraiser in New Hampshire aims to promote gun ownership in America by letting supporters fire powerful military-style weapons -- from Uzi submachine guns to M-16 rifles.

The Manchester Republican Committee is inviting party members and their families to a "Machine Gun Shoot" where, for $25, supporters can spend a day trying out automatic weapons, said organizer Jerry Thibodeau.

"It's a fun day. It's a family day," said Thibodeau of the August 5 event. "It's quite exciting."

Really? That is your idea of a Family Day? So I guess that is what the Columbine and the Virginia tech shooters were going through...just a bad family day...
If you want to read the whole story, here it is.
