Influential people who died in 2020

By BERNARD McGHEE In a year defined by a devastating pandemic, the world lost iconic defenders of civil rights, great athletes and entertainers who helped define their genres.

How Many Prosecutions For Illegally Owned Suppressors Happen in the USA?

How Many Prosecutions For Illegally Owned Suppressors Happen in the USA? U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Very few people are prosecuted for the illegal possession of silencers/suppressors in the United States. One of the problems in understanding the U.S. criminal justice system is records are dispersed. Records are kept in many different formats, and not easily searchable or sortable by offense. There are both federal and state crimes. The data is not all digitized. When it is, it is not all in sea...

This Vikes Fan Was Impressed Even Though We Lost

                               As my last post proves I was pretty down on the Vikes chances vs. Da Bears minus Kendricks. Then I discover both Mack and Hicks were in the line-up for Da Bears. All Trubisky had to be was competent and there is no way the Bears were losing that game. He was more than competent until he threw that pick at the end. The Bears were lucky the time ran out because we had the Bears D on their heels. Had the Vikes had time to run a couple more plays it might have been a...

Joe Maddon hoping for Angels to add multiple starting pitchers

Although the Angels’ improvements this winter haven’t touched the starting rotation, Joe Maddon believes help is on the way. Maddon said during an hour-long Zoom session with the media on Friday that he’s talked to new General Manager Perry Minasian just about every day, and he’s encouraged by the starting pitchers the Angels have discussed. “I like the names, and I’m optimistic that we can (make some additions),” Maddon said. “It would be plural.

Forecasts for travel in the region between Tuesday and Sunday, Nov. 24-29, call for a 14% decrease from last year, the biggest drop since the 2008 Great Recession, according to the Automobile Club of Southern California. “We expect that decrease might be even greater and we very well could see fewer tr...
