Newspaper Layout Fail: Rock Hill Herald

A South Carolina newspaper is apologizing for placing an advertisement for “Guns for Christmas” next to its story about the Connecticut elementary school shooting which left 20 children and half a dozen adults dead. The Rock Hill Herald’s ad showed a picture of an AR-15 rifle, which is the same model used by 20-year-old Adam Lanza to kill 26 people and himself on Friday in Newtown, Connecticut.

A very cool survival rifle

survival rifle

From uncrate: The trick with survival rifles is to actually have them when it comes time to do some survivin’ — and that’s hard to do with an oversized killing machine. The Henry U.S. Survival AR-7 Rifle ($275) is a semi-automatic firearm that sports an 8-round .22 LR magazine, and features a unique design that allows the receiver and the barrel to fit inside the impact-resistant, waterproof stock, making it perfect for keeping at the ready in a bag with clothes and supplies, or for hiding at a designated spot in the wilderness for retrieval post-shit hitting the fan.

Excellent for the paranoid gun enthusiast Kool-aid drinking conspiracy theorist in all of us. Also something very cool you can pull out next time your wife has book club.

Watch it in action here.
