Going long on pizza delivery: Papa John’s upgraded on belief civil unrest is encouraging more pizza delivery – “Papa John’s International Inc. was upgraded to overweight from sector weight at KeyBanc Capital Markets with analysts expressing the surprising view that diners, concerned about political and civil unrest, are choosing to stay home for pizza delivery rather than head out for a meal.” So does this mean more concealed carriers will be good for the restaurant business?
Duck season’s coming:
“In the sport of competition target shooting, malfunctions are not allowed. Harsh recoil is not tolerated and a gun must incorporate features that make it easy to shoot precisely. It’s from this world that the XLR5 Waterfowler is born.

To find out how this technology can work for your next hunting season, visit our website and learn why this is not the same old thing.”
Balls for democracy! Ban Guns, Not Tennis Balls: As NRA Addresses RNC, CodePink Protests Ohio’s Open-Carry Law – “For the first time ever, the National Rifle Association sent its chief lobbyist to the Republican National Convention. According to the NRA, Chris Cox became the group’s first official to ever speak at a political convention. Cox warned that a Hillary Clinton presidency would endanger one’s right to own a gun. While Cox spoke inside the convention on Tuesday, anti-gun activists held their own protest just outside the security gates against the fact that civilians are being allowed to carry military-grade weapons in downtown Cleveland this week but can’t have items such as tennis balls, cans or umbrellas. Democracy Now! was there when antiwar group CodePink teamed up with the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence to deliver 500 tennis balls to the front steps of the Republican National Convention.”
Nice shootin’ Tex:
What if we get rid of guns in America? – “Would America be OK with passing a law to do away with all guns? What if only military, law enforcement and certain professions such as security and bodyguards were allowed to carry firearms? Any other civilians would lose their right to carry a gun. Would this reduce the amount of incidents that result in deadly force? Possibly. That way, if a person is carrying a weapon you would be able to know that more than likely it is illegal.”
The Bill of Rights: Speech and Guns in the Private Workplace – “It’s doubtful that the architects of the Second Amendment ever meant to sow confusion with awkward grammar. One ill-placed comma – what grammarians degradingly call the “comma splice” — has confounded historians and legal experts for years. It’s also galvanized decades of debate over the actual interpretation of citizens’ rights when it comes to owning and carrying a gun.” It’s really not that complicated…unless you’re an academic.

A memorial to victims of gun crime has been made with residue from the concrete streets where they died – “Teresa Margolles, whose work has predominantly focused on violence from organized crime, has built a 20-foot-wide concrete memorial in Echo Park, Los Angeles. The memorial honors the 100 homicide victims in Los Angeles killed on public streets since January 2015. The memorial, called La Sombra (The Shade) offers visitors a place to rest and reflect. Margolles and her team researched and visited homicide sites, then poured buckets of water on parts of the street. They then sponged the residue from the drenched street.” That’s a lot of residue.
