A video of a photographer shooting birds with a rifle has gone viral over the past few days. But before you get shocked: no, he’s not using an actual rifle. He attached his camera onto one of those rare rifle-like accessories, and he seems to be entertaining everyone who sees him.
On Tuesday evening, an Instagram post with a threatening message sent a 14-year old boy to jail. The unnamed boy from Lemon Grove, California posted an AR-15-style rifle made of LEGO on his Instagram profile, captioned “Don’t come to school tomorrow.” Reportedly, another student asked him to take the photo down, and he refused. As a consequence, the student was arrested for making a criminal threat.
The mass shooting at a Florida high school last week shook up the USA as well as the rest of the world. A man from Texarkana, Texas apparently tried making a cruel joke out of it, and it sent him straight to jail. 24 years old Ricky Rankin posted a photo of an AR-15 assault rifle to his Instagram page, the same type of rifle used in the Florida high school shooting. The caption “I’m thinking about finally going back to school” had the community concerned, so they notified the police, which took him into custody.
