In America, we love God, Guns, and Country.
Ain't no damn hurricane gonna take our cities.
In Florida at least 50,000 brave Second Amendment loving Americans are going to ensure that Hurricane Irma doesn't destroy their homes, by signing up to wipe out the Hurricane with good old fashioned gunpowder and lead.
The United States promises that we will fire upon any foreign invaders who threaten our way of life, and those citizens are going to light up Irma with hundreds of thousands of rounds of ammunition as she approaches the shore.
No, I'm being serious, <a href="https://www.facebook.com/events/126766931320280/">there is a Facebook event planned just for this purpose. </a>
"It's time we took a stand against this bully!" says the event description. "This is our home, nobody drives us out of our own territory.
"Join me in this fight as we shoot flames at Hurricane Irma and dissipate her on the spot."
22 year old Ryon Edwards is behind the movement, which he says started as a way to cope with boredom, before it gained widespread support and momentum on social media.
“I never envisioned this event becoming some kind of crazy idea larger than myself. It has become something a little out of my control,” said Edwards.
Not everyone thinks this may be a good idea however, with other experts suggesting the storm may actually act as a boomerang and fire the bullets back at those shooting or other innocent bystanders.

Imagine that, an all out artillery war against Hurricane Irma, <i>with Irma actually firing back</i>.
I will say this, if anyone can defeat the Hurricane, it's definitely around 50k brave rednecks with rifles and handguns. Irma might take one look at the men and head right back to Cuba.
Yes indeed, what a time to be alive.
