This morning, D.C. Councilman Marion Barry was not happy with the National Park Service. At least that’s what his Twitter feed suggests:

The NPS is currently hunting deer in Rock Creek Park in order to cull the growing herd. And, appallingly, while the deer population control controversy is in full swing, Fingerhut’s retail catalog is advertising a gun!

What? The nerve! How can we stand for this? Something must be done:

MOFO of the month? Ouch.

To his credit, Barry has since apologized to the NPS, telling the WaPo that he didn’t actually send out any of the tweets; someone with access to his account did. He declined to name names (maybe it was his ghost-tweeter). He also said that while he regrets the salty language, he remains firmly opposed to the deer hunt.

He has not, however, apologized to Fingerhut. Oh, and did we mention that whoever is manning Barry’s Twitter account failed to notice that the gun in question is actually a BB/pellet gun? Whoops.

The distinction is of little consequence, though. In the end, all guns still kill people:

Barry’s got quite a crusade ahead of him:

Heh.

    @marcscribner We have enough guns over here. Promoting these guns only turns to more dangerous weapons. We’ve had enough, thank you.

    Barry, do you mean it would be like giving a kid one joint and having him turn into a drug addled idiot like yourself?

    BB guns only lead to more serious guns? So they are “gateway” guns. Is that an analogy of MJ being a “gateway” drug? I guess if anyone would know about that, it would be him.

    • ThorOdinson

      No kidding. We’re supposed to accept the “logical” conclusions of a crackhead? Besides, something tells me that the vast majority of perpetrators of gun violence never owned a BB gun in their life…

    Put it down, Barry!

    Well to be fair, my first gun was a Daisy lever action repeating rifle (similar tot he one in A Christmas Story sans compass in the stock). I was 6 and subjected to constant safe handling recitations before each use. I did graduate to bigger guns as I grew older and more proficient.

    I wonder what they are going to do with all that deer meat? Probably destroy it since it hasn’t been inspected by the USDA. Sequester ya know. They could relocate some of it to my freezer.

    “MOFRO” … ah the irony. This from the guy who was getting “Lewinskyed” in the cafeteria at the DC jail while the baby mamas (& babies) of the other inmates were present.

    If that Crossman was shooting crack pellets at 660fps, Barry would be on it like a southern baptist preacher reaching out for a $50 donation.
