Comedian Joe Mande did an impressive and depressing job of pointing out just how many people got guns for Christmas and ecstatically tweeted about it. He began retweeting a massive list of pro-gun Christmas tweets. Seriously, a lot of people get guns for Christmas — and a lot of those people are children. Apparently nothing says “I love you” like a handing a child a weapon.
Wow. America is scary.

This is really a thing. And those are just the beginning. There are so many more.
This is basically presented without comment, because what do you even say about this? It’s insane.
