Blue Lives Matter

Moment of Silence for Officers, NOT Victims of Mass Shootings

The GOP Convention is starting the way anyone could assume it would have, with chairman Reince Priebus asking for a “brief moment of silence” for specifically the “officers slain” in previous days – specifically citing Baton Rouge and Dallas.

The AR-15: It’s Time For Gun Reform

The AR-15 is a rifle that is primarily used in a military setting that has trickled it’s way down into civilian usage.

The AR-15 is lightweight, gas-operated, magazine-fed, and air-cooled. Quick to move with and easy to take apart, sophisticatedly controlled, and capable of churning out magazine after magazine of bullets, the weapon is something you’d expect to find primarily on the battlefield.
