Interesting times in the city of angels: LAX returning to normal after panic due to unfounded shooter report – “Operations restarted Monday morning at Los Angeles International Airport after terminals were cleared while police investigated reports of shots being fired, authorities said. Los Angeles police said they determined no shots were fired and no one was injured.

Warwick police found the implement ‘poking out’ of the 21-year-old’s bottom during a strip search, Sunshine Coast Daily reports.” Million to one shot, doc. Million to one.
Armed and Aging: As Older Americans Own the Most Guns, Should They Face More Gun Controls? – “’So much of the dialogue around guns in this country has been around crime, and lately, mass shootings.

There’s definitely more to be done on that issue in the United States.’” We’ll be hearing a lot more of this as the population continues to age (and the civilian disarmament industrial complex looks for new lines of attack).
Starting today, Liberty University students can keep guns in their dorms – “’I can now sleep soundly knowing that I can defend myself everywhere on campus.

LibertyUPreviously, students were allowed to carry their gun elsewhere on campus and store them in their cars at night. At a campus that spans 7,000 acres, some felt that was unsafe.”
Chabot: Maura Healey shoots Dems in foot with gun grab – “Attorney General Maura Healey’s controversial assault weapons crackdown has become yet another political land mine threatening the Bay State’s already shaken Democratic Party as it seeks to mount a serious 2018 challenger against Republican Gov. Charlie Baker. In deeply blue Massachusetts, the Democratic Party is turning into its own worst enemy.” Oh darn.
