  1. From what I gather it seems:

     

    anything with the D or R word in it,

     

    nothing about any legislation including gun control legislation even if just reporting the facts - there is the Team Sass Forum, but nobody ever seems to ever read it let alone responds,

     

    anything that offends someone such that they report it.

     

    I like the sassnet.com forum but it is very limited in what one can say. Seems like everyplace on the internet has become more and more restrictive of comments and discussions including Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, Reddit, even AR15.com has to an extent though people in General discussion there will still pretty much hate on anything and everything and be rude. 

  2. I came up with this short list of easy to read books that I enjoyed in my youth and that I think still hold up as an adult. Any additional suggestions are welcome as reading lists for young men and women are always a good thing.

     

    Animal Farm - well done, entertaining, and a short easy read
    To Kill a Mockingbird - easy to read, paints a vivid picture of the south in the late forties early fifties through a child's eyes, still one of the best written books I've ever read.
    Tarzan - the first book is actually well written and engrossing.
    The Once and Future King - T.H. White - about Arthur, Camelot, and Lancelot - I would say Le Morte d'Arthur but it's not as readable for kids.
    The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
    Monster Hunters International - first book
    Iron Men and Saints and the Flame of Islam by Harrold Lamb - easy to read well told history of the Crusades - written in 1962 I believe before all the PC crap.
    The Diary of Anne Frank
    Men Ships and the Sea - Alan John Villiers for National Geographic - history of men ships and the sea - tons of fascinating information and illustrations.
    The Three Musketeers

     

     

  3. The rate of gun background checks in the United States—a rough correlator to how many guns are being sold here—shattered records in March, breaking four million checks for the second time in history and blowing past the earlier one-month record set in January.

    The FBI performed nearly 4.7 million background checks for guns last month, almost 400,000 more than the earlier record set in January. 

    January and March are the only time in the history of the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System that gun checks have broken four million. Prior to that, the highest number of checks was in December of last year at 3.9 million.
