Guinness Book Of World Records Doubles Down On Stupid

posted on November 23, 2016

In a feature article we posted here yesterday, we told you how 1,000 Second Amendment supporters who gathered in Phoenix, Ariz., and fired two simultaneous shots were shunned by the Guinness Book of World Records with no explanation given. 

Now, however, an explanation has been given. And boy, is it stupid.

“Guinness World Records does not monitor mass participation records that, each time the record is broken, increase the danger posed to the general public or environment,” the company said in a released statement. “As the activity proposed by the NRA is not one we feel can be safely monitored on a global basis, we unfortunately are unable to recognize it as a record.”

Obviously, the 2,000 shots in the 1000 Man Shoot were fired in complete safety to the general public and participants, as are millions upon millions of shots fired each year at shooting ranges throughout the nation. Guinness’ statement is asinine at best, and highlights the company’s apparent disdain for lawful gun owners practicing a pastime they enjoy.
