NRA unveils new semi-automatic rifle that shoots thoughts and prayers

FAIRFAX, VIRGINIA – Responding to the latest mass shooting that has rocked the United States, the National Rifle Association today unveiled a new AR-15 assault rifle whose ammunition will be the thoughts and prayers of lawmakers who oppose gun control.

“This new ‘thoughts and prayers’ assault rifle is the perfect weapon for Americans to protect themselves from crazed individuals who are attacking them with assault rifles,” said NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre at a press conference today. “Fortunately, thoughts and prayers are something that American lawmakers have in ample supply, particularly following these increasingly regular mass shootings.”

The gas-powered Colt XM-15-TnP carbine is capable of firing 45 thoughts or prayers per minute. The manufacturer’s advertising explains that “these thoughts and prayers used to only be for destroying powerful speeches on gun control from widowers or the parents of children killed by gun violence. But now, the NRA has finally found a way to effectively weaponize them for civilian use.”

“We’ve had so many mass shootings in the US this year alone, I’m practically swimming in thoughts and prayers,” said U.S. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell. “Plus, I’ve accepted over $922,000 in donations from the NRA, so it’s nice to finally donate some of my deadliest thoughts and prayers back to the gun-owning community.”

USS Gabrielle Giffords to get commissioned

WASHINGTON — Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-08, is getting a Navy combat ship named after her — the first living woman since Martha Washington to be the namesake of a warship.

She’ll be joined by some other trailblazing women at the commissioning of the USS Gabrielle Giffords on Saturday in Galveston, Texas: former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Second Lady Jill Biden will attend the ceremony.

Giffords was shot during a constituent event in Tucson, Ariz. in 2011. She survived the assassination attempt, but it left her disabled and she resigned from her seat in Congress. On the same day she announced her retirement then-Navy secretary Ray Mabus told her the Navy planned to name a warship in her honor.

The district that Giffords represented has a large military presence and she served on the House Armed Services Committee when she was in Congress. That seat is now held by GOP Rep. Martha McSally, who was the first female fighter pilot to fly in combat.

Prosecutors: Contractor wanted to 'burn the White House down'

Source: WSB-TV 2, Atlanta

RICHMOND COUNTY, Ga. - An Augusta woman charged with leaking classified information was indicted by a federal grand jury on one count, but prosecutors said they are likely to add more.

A federal magistrate judge held a detention hearing for Reality Winner Thursday afternoon. The 25-year-old worked as a contractor for the government and is accused of giving classified information from the National Security Agency to an online news outlet. She entered a not-guilty plea. The judge denied bond...

...Prosecutors said a phone call to her sister expressed Winner’s confidence in how to play the court during her bond hearing.

“I’m pretty, white and cute,” she allegedly told her sister. Prosecutors said Winner told her sister she would braid her hair and cry in court.

WikiLeaks Declares War on The Intercept (LOL)

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange told The Daily Beast he holds reporters—not just the Trump administration—responsible for the arrest of a U.S. intelligence contractor charged with leaking classified information.

On Monday, the Justice Department said Reality Winner, a 25-year-old National Security Agency contractor, sent top secret information to a news outlet. The announcement came shortly after The Intercept published a series of NSA documents claiming that Russian hackers targeted a voting-software supplier and local election officials just prior to Election Day.

According to the affidavit, reporters for the unnamed news organization provided a copy of the printed NSA report to the agency in order to seek comment. The NSA claimed six people had printed out the report including Winner, who the agency said had been in contact with an unnamed news outlet.

WikiLeaks offered a $10,000 reward for information “leading to the public exposure & termination” of the reporter.

How many more times is Assange going to offer that "reward" he never has to pay out?
