Greetings from Wonkette’s brand new Bunker O’ Love, the underground safe room on our Idaho compound where we go to write about guns, gun accessories, and how they have made America great. Today, we have several tales of Great Americans using their guns for personal protection while keeping them in reserve to rise up against [...]
Despite his contention that no one should be allowed to quote stuff from his past, because Jesus + Constitution, E.W. Jackson, the Jesusman running for Leftenant Governor in Virginia, may very well be dogged by some stuff from, you know, the past. Specifically, the revelation that in 2006, a former roommate of his daughter sought [...]
Just in case you good folks aren’t already filled with rage and sad this morning, how about this news from Charlotte, North Carolina? Police were responding to a 911 call about a possible breaking and entering (a woman had called saying someone was repeatedly knocking on her door), and then: Police say that when they [...]
Did you feel as though an intangible but perceptible cloud of safety and serenity descended on your community sometime last week? Probably this is because you live in Park Forest, Illinois, where local police successfully tased and beanbagged a 95-year-old World War II veteran to death last week for being ornery and refusing to put [...]
Sheriff’s deputies in the Florida panhandle town of Warrington shot a 60-year-old man in the leg Saturday as he was getting a cigarette out of his mother’s car in the driveway of the home they share.

Petraeus — who returned from seeing constant murder [...]
Hello San Diego Sheriff’s Department! How are you protecting and serving the people of San Diego today? Oh, just by shooting Navy veterans while trespassing on their property because you are “startled,” that’s all, no big deal! Also, he’s SORRY, she STARTLED him (srsly) so what more do you people want?
A police officer in Tulsa has been suspended because he arrested a minority without reasonable suspicion for a vague and unspecified “crime.” No, just joking, they’d never be suspended for that! But he was suspended for refusing to attend a mandatory cultural event at a mosque. A Tulsa police officer and devout Christian is suing [...]
OC Weekly — where one of your Wonkettes may have spent a cool dozen years of her benighted life — has what appears to be the smoking Molotov in the recent Anaheim Unpleasantness. Through a series of still photos and videos, they seem to have got the goods on a nice lady who went from [...]
What is REAL AMERICA up to these days, hm? How are REAL AMERICAN HEROES, like police officers, for example, weathering the economic chaos of the past half decade or so? Turns out they are weathering it with lots of fun toys like tanks and machine guns, thanks to a “program” that allows them to acquire [...]
Hey, fun exercise: imagine nine people getting together to talk about tiny little gadgets that were invented specifically to cause agonizing pain, and figure out the parameters of who is allowed to use them on you, and in what context? Sounds awesome, right? Now, what if one of these nine people were, say, Antonin Scalia, [...]
