A man who was a member of an idiotic Facebook group created to share pictures of juvenile young men pointing loaded guns at their crotches appears to have shot himself on Tuesday.
Video of the negligent discharge was posted to the “Pointing Guns at [Benis]” Facebook group on Tuesday. A video reveals a man chambering a round in a .45 1911 pistol, pointing the loaded weapon at his crotch. The weapon appears to go off, and it’s unclear how the discharge happened.
The idiotic Facebook group was created by a group of juvenile gun enthusiasts, intended as a means to aggravate the vast majority of Second Amendment supporters who actually support robust gun safety. (No, not gun control, but behaving in a responsible and adult manner with firearms and recognizing them as the lethal weapons they are.)
It is possible that the gun was loaded with a blank round as an idiotic prank, a trick that is still dangerous to the irresponsible gun owner and a waste of medical resources that could be used to treat more serious people.
However, the moron uploaded a picture of his bloody floor, claiming that he later went to the hospital after shooting himself in the scrotum. An administrator for the ill-advised Facebook group claims that he was released from a hospital the next day without serious injury.
The group itself appears to have been deleted by Facebook, made into a private group, or disbanded by its administrators as of Saturday.
Please, don’t engage in moronic conduct such as this. Never point any firearm-even if you think it’s unloaded- at anything you’re not willing to shoot.
Let the actions of this fool serve as a warning that a gun isn’t intended as a protest prop, a bang bang toy, or a slick gadget primarily meant to be shown off to your friends.
Biden COVID Advisor Paid to Sponsor Mask Brand Claimed Product “Deactivates” Coronavirus
This could represent a serious ethics violation.
An incoming Biden White House coronavirus advisor promoted a brand of mask he claims “deactivates” coronavirus, claiming on his personal podcast that Livinguard masks offer more protection to their wearers than other products.
There should be an immediate federal ethics investigation of incoming Biden covid advisor @ASlavitt for his claim that a mask he was pitching (for money, see below) “deactivates” the coronavirus—with no disclaimer about claims not being evaluated by FDA. pic.twitter.com/v5lnr3jZZh

“All masks can curb the spread of COVID-19. Why I like the Livinguard masks, and why I wear them, is because they actually deactivate coronavirus thanks to their incredible patented technology that’s been shown to mitigate the spread of microorganisms like bacteria and viruses.”
Slavitt confirmed that Livinguard is a “sponsor” to him, in some capacity.
This awesome mask / sponsor we’ve been wearing & talking about on #InTheBubble has given us permission to give away 100 on Twitter! Antiviral Technology, washable and reusable. In the comments by 8/21 just mention your 3 fave episodes+follow @livinguard if you want to qualify pic.twitter.com/guQJpPaj4v

Livinguard masks can be washed and reused, and they sell for as much as $30 on the company’s website. Various manufacturers of facemasks have made claims of health superiority as it pertains to their product.
Slavitt’s claim about the masks is not evaluated by the FDA, and the questionable nature of his claims could potentially incur the scrutiny of the health organization.
The former Obama administration official’s claim that the masks “deactivate” COVID is highly questionable. Experts generally agree that masks are more effective at preventing asymptomatic carriers from spreading the virus than they are in protecting the wearer from it, and Slavitt’s language implies the material of the mask is more effective in neutralizing COVID molecules than other fabric and cloth surfaces. Such a claim would represent a dramatic development in the fight against COVID, and it’s very likely the material would be adopted en masse to deter further spread of the disease.
