Ban Axes!

“An officer with Washington’s Metropolitan Police Department came under an unprovoked attack Friday from a man wielding an ax, police said, the second such attack in two weeks that is prompting warnings and new protocols to officers on the job.” So reports  This follow last week’s hacking at two NYPD officers by an Islamic […]

Gun Tweet of the Day: Glocktober 31st Edition
