Feinstein & Boxer in lala land: Asks CA civilians & police to lay down arms ushering in peace

This illustrates that Senators Feinstein and Boxer live in LA LA LAND. They are asking as a sign of how the people want gun control for civilians AND law enfocement to lay down their arms!

“The Senators feel the best course of action is to remove all weapons from law enforcement and private citizens so no one else gets hurt,” said a Senate communications intern. “When the gunman realizes that nobody else is armed, he will lay down his weapons and turn himself in…. that’s just human nature.”

Throughout the day, Senators Feinstein and Boxer made desperate pleas for their California constituents to turn in their guns and not confront the crazed gunman because this would be a perfect test of their anti-gun proposals.

In memory of Abby

Hi,
I have some updates to post but today is a tribute to my beloved black lab Abby who tonight lost her year long battle to kidney disease.

She was the best dog a person could have. She was beloved and will be missed.

RIP beautiful Abby

Glock Armorers no longer (as of Sept) eligible for Blue Label purchase program!

I just confirmed with GSSF that Glock Armorers are no longer eligible for the purchase program. Previously, Armorers (that are not first responders) could buy (2) Blue Label Glock pistols. This decision was made in September and no notification was given. I only found out due a single sentence stating it in the new “Glock Report” which I received on Sat.

I emailed GSSF for clarification and received this:

“GLOCK, Inc. has discontinued the additional discount purchases for all Armorers. The went into effect at the end of September. This included all armorers. Unfortunately, we were given no advance notice regarding this change.

GSSF members are still eligible for one pistol purchase coupon per year. That program has remained unchanged.”
