Despite this mornings massacre in Virginia, Americans are celebrating today as June 1st marks 152 days into the year and only 150 mass shootings.

“It’s super! I genuinely can’t remember the last time the number of days into the year we are¬†surpassed the number of mass shootings!” Said Chuck Schwartz, school teacher, currently in intensive care after a student shot him in the stomach with an AR-15 during Geography last week.

“This just goes to prove that Gun Control laws won’t do anything but increase the problem of a few individuals misusing firearms” said NRA member and local gun rights lobbiest Clark Griswald shortly before accidentally shooting his three year old son for the second time this year.

Whatever your opinions on gun control, today is indeed a special day for Americans. Unless you’re one of the the ones who got shot this morning in Virginia.
