Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

I don't usually post dairies whose titles are multiple expletives - but some things are just truly beyond the pale.  @Kagro posted this on Twitter minutes ago. I think my eyes need bleach.

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

(For those whom the Twitter Embed doesn't work)

Is this a joke?  Is this a pisstake?  Or is this father seriously attempting to Shame his toddler daughter into feeling bad for accidentally shooting herself in the leg with a Glock?

I understand we have gun nuts in this country - but Good GOD DAMN!  Anyone who let's a toddler - a Toddler - handle a loaded gun under any circumstances should immediately be getting a knock on the door from child services.

I mean, like damn...

I have no more words.

ok, one word, FUCK.

2:27 PM PT: Someone in comments found a claim by the video author that it is snark, which confirms my original response.  It IS a joke, a bad joke - but a joke.

4:57 PM PT: I've had a suggestion to delete the diary and I'm tempted, however - a) there's been some good discussion about some worthwhile subjects and b) claiming that it's only a joke is a great way to avoid any potential liability.  Is that claim more or less credible than the worse case scenario?  It's not like something like that hasn't occurred - @KagroX has a litany of examples.in his latest #GunFail c) perhaps this should stand as how to Not, NOT NOT make a joke about kids getting shot, whether by accident or on purpose.  

It's never funny, not even a little bit.
