WATCH: This FL State Senator Compared Spoons To AR-15s. Wait…What?

The Florida Legislature is not exactly filled with our best and brightest, as we’ve discovered in recent months.

But be that as it may, we are still able to be shocked by some of the dumb ass things that are said in Tallahassee.

Cue: Senator Dennis Baxley from Ocala.

In an interview with VICE NEWS, Baxley, who is well-known for his pro-gun views tried to deflect a reporter’s question about an assault weapons ban into some sort of weird morality lesson involving silverware.

You’ll just have to watch it to fully grasp the mind-bending stupidity:

 

Yes.

So in Baxley’s world, politicians should never pass any laws because it is very possible that someone is getting fat right now eating Haagen-Dazs.

This Gun Loving Miami Teen Is In Jail On A Child Porn Charge After His Dad Turned His Phone Over To Police

What You Need To Know About This Story:


-An 18 year old student at Miami Krop Senior High School is in jail after his father turned over the teen’s phones to police. 

-Sean Mesa was arrested on charges of possessing child pornography and a charge of improper display of a firearm after police were given his phones to look at concerns his father had regarding his gun use. 

The Miami Herald reports that federal and local investigators knew about Mesa before his father turned over the electronic devices because of various social media posts he has made in the past. 

-Mesa’s father was apparently motivated to turn over the phones after the Parkland shooting. 

-From the Herald

“Mesa came to the attention of U.S Homeland Security Investigations’ Violent Gang Task Force, which forwarded his Instagram and Snapchat photos “recklessly displaying firearms and pointing them at the camera,” according to an arrest warrant.

Miami-Dade Schools Detective John Messenger went to Krop High on Tuesday to try to “engage in a friendly conversation to understand what Sean Mesa’s fascination with firearms was.” 

Mesa, however, bristled — telling him ‘he likes guns and it was his right to post on social media whatever he wished.’”

-After the police visited Mesa at school, his father agreed to turn over the phones to authorities. 
-During the search on the phones, the US Secret Service found video of a 10 year child being sexually abused. Mesa allegedly had shared in a group chat.
