Re: another angry white nationalist with a gun

How's this for twisted logic? It's easier for an 18 year old to go out and buy a gun than a beer. In fact, it's even easier for that 18 year old to run down to the corner gun store and buy a semiautomatic AR-15 than a lowly handgun of any variety. :huh: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/feb/1...
