Never underestimate stupid people in large groups.
In today’s episode of What in the Holy Hell is Wrong with These People?! I submit some stupid Floridians packing heat as they face down Mother Nature.
Hurricane Irma is a monster storm that has already devastated the Caribbean. And now it’s bearing down on the state of Florida. The state is in the process of the biggest mass evacuation in U.S. history.
But not all Floridians are following evacuation orders. In fact, some have decided that they’d rather stay and fight the storm. With their guns.
Yes, you read that right. Thousands of Florida gun owners are signing up to shoot their guns into the storm. They’re even posting graphics showing people exactly how to shoot Irma. Oh, how I wish I was kidding.
22-year-old Ryon Edwards started a Facebook “event” for this Sunday called “Shoot at Hurricane Irma.” As of Saturday afternoon there are 52,000 people interested in the event and 24,000 confirmed as “attending.”
“A combination of stress and boredom made me start the event. The response is a complete and total surprise to me. I never envisioned this event becoming some kind of crazy idea larger than myself. It has become something a little out of my control.”
I would really like to think that these 52,000 gun-toting Floridians just have really wild senses of humor and that they are all totally joking. But I thought the same thing about all of the people who said they were going to vote for Donald Trump. And look how that shit turned out.
Like I said, never underestimate stupid people in large groups.
