I don't think the media isn't going to rest until the armorer from the Rust shooting is physically hung..

Media and the internet are getting out of hand...

Yeah, they are trying to pin the majority of the blame on her. Being handed a firearm, prop or not, if you are holding it and it is capable of harming someone, it is your responsibility.

The whole Nic Cage thing is just kinda dumb. Firing a prop gun without notifying them is poor safety? Poor etiquette, yes. Though I am no a fan of most above the waist holsters for the reason they had a complaint about her tucking guns under her armpits. It is too easy to flag everyone with the muzzle.

Trying to keep this as little as politically possible, but what is the first rule of gun safety? Always treat a weapon as it is loaded.

Another thing with this is that it was almost immediately politicized, not going to say how, or why, but it was. Which was kinda of tasteless.

It is a juicy story and having juicy stories keeps bored reporters busy so any hearsay goes when it comes to "reporting", interviews start flowing, witnesses, friends, family, even if they don't provide any real context or helpful information. Just like the theories about that girl from Florida that went missing.

People love to theorize, and news outlets will have fillers up the A in order to keep viewers engaged.

Very cool.

I'm down to 5 bottles. Love some Treet chicken, hot or cold.

I think it was pretty tasteless all around. It is a teachable moment gone to waste. My best friend could help me hook up my car trailer to my truck and strap down the car. I am going to check everything he did, the onus isn't on him it is on me.

Is it just me or just around me, but I don't see much unique or bright color cars anymore. That include typical red or blue. This week, I've seen only 4 cars that's not white, silver, gray, black or those shades.

Appealing to the masses means being bland AF. It could also just be Utah that's bland AF...

I don't see many cars nowadays.

My car is all those colors though I would consider it "bright." It certainly attracts a lot of attention. I am looking to add some color to it though.

Yes it is, though it has been reinforced and had additional mounts added. It is getting ditched later this year/early next year once I get some alumalite to build my own.

That is my work. We are allowed to do personal stuff off hours or as long as it doesn't effect day to day. There is a 300C being painted in one of the bays right now. A lot of the guys here are car guys and almost every weekend something is getting worked on. I store my car at work most of the time.
