IMI Systems Quote of the Day: Un-Silenced Guns Mean Fewer Shooting Victims…Or Something

“It’s worth mentioning that the Virginia Tech shooting was far from the only time that survivors heard gunshots and knew they had to react quickly.

Quote of the Day: Focusing on the Real Problem

“There’s no evidence of a public health issue associated with hearing loss from gunfire.

Question of the Day: What Gun Control Repeal Should President Trump Tackle First?
