Government Takes Jackass Teabaggy Comic Book Retailer's Guns Away

Posted by Paul Constant on Wed, Jan 19, 2011 at 10:01 AM

Last week, I told you about the online retailer who alienated comics professionals and fans alike by writing a blog post after the Tucson shootings titled "1 down, 534 to go."

Late yesterday, Bleeding Cool brought the heartening news that the authorities have come and taken this douchebag retailer's guns away from him.

According to, police have begun an investigation over his comments, and in doing so seized a “large amount” of weapons and ammunition. Corcoran surrendered the items to the police at his home. and has had his firearms license suspended on grounds of “suitability.”

It's heartening to know that cops follow the comic book nerd blogosphere so closely.
