You knew that avid hunter/vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan loves killing animals. But did you know that he loves killing animals WITH HANDGUNS?

Mr. Ryan also likes to challenge himself by shooting with his revolver. “He likes hunting with a handgun,” Mr. Olcott said of his brother-in-law.  “He’ll carry his .357 in the stand — in a holster — and wait for a deer comes in range for a handgun, which is more like bow range, 30 yards or closer,” said Mr. Olcott. “He’s shot a lot of deer with his handgun. He really likes that.”

He really likes that.

Jesus Christ. That’s creepy.
