PSH Affliction of the Week

You'd be hard-pressed to top this one.

Accused St. John's gunman Omesh Hiraman only had to hand over cash to buy the muzzle-loading rifle he's accused of using to cause a terror scare on campus.

The 22-year-old went to Dick's Sporting Goods in Poughkeepsie on Friday afternoon, threw down $179.99 and walked out with a Wolf 209 Magnum, cops said.


"No self-respecting criminal or gang-banger would ever buy one of these," a law enforcement source said. "But crazies - they love 'em."

"No self-respecting law enforcement officer would ever utter such a mind-numbingly idiotic comment," one blogger up in New Hampshire said. "But ignorant douchebags - they love to."
