LA gangs now trying out pedal-by shootings on bicycles.

"Faced with ever increasing fuel prices and pressure to reduce their carbon footprint, LA gangs have begun to explore non-traditional means of going about their day-to-day operations. As one of the many possible changes being examined, a pilot program of using bicycles to take on tasks once only done by car is underway. This initial step has been showing promise, with the successful "Pedal-by" shooting occuring on LA's East 43rd St., near Hooper Avenue on Monday. The two targets were not badly injured, as it was a simple warning pedal-by, but initial response has been positive.

Hector 'Snake Blade' Cortes noted "the biking gives me a way to get some fresh air and exercise we don't normally get from our daily grind." "We really should be worrying about not only who's stepping into our business," said accomplice Johnathan 'The Gun' Smith, "but also the environment, global warming won't cure itself you know." If response is good, and the return on respectability sees a market increase under the new policy, look to see a further roll out across greater LA in the near future."

Remember when they gave pilots guns to increase airplane security? On Saturday, a US Airways pilot accidentally fired his gun in the cockpit during flight while trying to stow it, blowing a hole in the plane.

As BoingBoing put it best: "We can assume that a trained pilot, when facing piloty thingies, will act like a trained pilot. We cannot assume that a trained pilot will act like a trained lion-tamer when facing a wild lion."

Armed America: Portraits of Gun Owners in Their Homes

via wtf_inc and Funtasticus.

Kyle Cassidy traveled 15,000 miles over two years photographing Americans in their homes and asking one question: “Why do you own a gun?” A good question, particularly since most of these guns are not easily reconcilable with the notion of self-defence and their true place should be somewhere in the Armed Forces. All the photo were later compiled in the book with its German edition being published this year. The pics below are taken from the latter. As said by Alan Cooperman from The Washington Post: “Each picture in Armed America could be a pro-gun advertisement - or an anti-gun poster. That’s what makes the book so riveting.”
