Nice try, Eric

Doesn't Eric Cantor know that WE don't HAVE guns?

Yesterday Eric Cantor tried to get a piece of the "I'm Being Threatened By American Terrorists" action by claiming that one of his offices had been hit by a bullet:
“Just recently I have been directly threatened. A bullet was shot through the window of my campaign office in Richmond this week.”

Too bad he didn't read the police report which indicates a stray bullet, rather than a violent attempt on someone's life (especially since it happened at 1 AM):
A preliminary investigation shows that a bullet was fired into the air and struck the window in a downward direction, landing on the floor about a foot from the window. The round struck with enough force to break the windowpane but did not penetrate the window blinds. There was no other damage to the room, which is used occasionally for meetings by the congressman.

I know they think we're stupid, but even those of us who are not gun nuts know that if you are firing to make a threat, you do not fire in the air.

Nice try, asshole. Close, but no cigar.

Nobody has mentioned it was a tea-bagger stunt.
