I guess that I missed the law he signed banning silencers or even bump stocks. Could you possibly enlighten me on the law passed by congress and signed into law by Trump?
How about we place blame where it belongs. Remember that when you point fingers that four are directed back. ATF? DHS? FBI? CIA? And a shit ton of other alphabet agencies that have high jacked our govt at the direction of our elected. WHY? To get your vote!!! They have obligated their responsibility so that they can not be blamed for the actions of burearocrat.
Now go take a civics class and then report back how laws are supposed to be written in accordance with the Constitution.
Start with the easy class on school house rock. Hint... YouTube.

It is with the spirit of sniping/sharpshooting that I post this message about "Sweet Lips." That was the name of the rifle that was used to kill British Major Patrick Ferguson at the battle of Kings Mountain in October of 1780.

Before listening to the song about "Sweet Lips," a little reading is in order to appreciate this wonderful ballad of American history and the marksmen who are a part of it. Please take a little time to read these links then listen to the song. Even if you don't like bluegrass music, you might like this song.

In the song, Grandpa Jones says that John Gilliam [sic] killed Ferguson. That's the only inaccuracy that I can find.

Robert Young was the father-in-law of John Gilliland (Gilliam in the song). Gilliand was wounded too badly too take the shot so it's my guess that Young used Gilliand's rifle after it "snapped" by simply recharging the pan. If Young had his own rifle but had already fired, it would have been faster to recharge the pan of Gilliand's rifle rather than reloading his own.

Or maybe Gilliand had loaned Young "Sweet Lips" who already had it in hand.

Perhaps some of you may have other theories about who wielded "Sweet Lips" on that battle in October 7, 1780.

How about the only glove manufacturer still in he USA

View attachment 7106535
I like Nokona gloves but they are way too heavy and the leather is way too soft, great for softball, not so much for baseball.

BTW, Nokona is not the only glove still made in America, Katz makes a much nicer glove but a lot more expensive and you have to wait in line to get one.

How many of the marbles will hit a braggin president with zero credentials?
Credentials?
For what?
Being a sell out politician?
Name me one President in the last 30 years that was successful in the private sector.
Guess what the real credentials are for running a country.
Guess what is always key in foreign policy.
