Trump To Address NRA Roiled By Infighting

Toxic Media and the Rights Restrictors

Fake News & Media Bias U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)-  We live in the internet age where we have a world of information at our fingertips.

One is boringly familiar while the other is virtually invisible to us because of media bias. ...

‘The OA: Part II’ Spoiler Review: Let’s Talk About the Telepathic Octopus (and That Equally Bonkers Ending)

Netflix’s The OA seemingly came out of nowhere when its first season dropped in December 2016 with little in the way of promotional pageantry save for some questionable last-minute tweets . Created by Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij — the duo behind the films Sound of My Voice and The East — the show almost literally became an overnight sensation thanks to its same-day release of eight easily binge-able episodes. Bizarre yet absorbing, perhaps earnest to a fault, it wore its aspirations on it...

Bolt Action Assault Rifles Are “Insane”

So says Salon. Take a minute and look at all the military-speak gun-culture nomenclature babble they slap down: “match-grade” and “muzzle brake” and “infinitely adjustable folding stock” and all the rest of that crap.

OK, their use of “insane” is a kind of gun-lover-hipster-speak, and the Scorpio isn’t a semiautomatic assault rifle like the ones used to kill 20 children and six teachers at Sandy Hook, or t...
