Best reason to duck: Bob Buckhorn "Aiming" a Firearm at Local Media

Best reason to duck

Local reporters were quite put out by Tampa Bay Mayor Bob Buckhorn’s joking to a room full of military personnel that he’d aimed a mounted gun at members of the press during a military demo and watched them “cry like little girls.” Even though he was probably just playing to his audience (likely conservatives who likely hate the press), people took the joke a little too seriously. We know that these are very...sensitive times, but jeez. Have a sense of humor, people. — KB
