This guy’s had it
For a Florida gun store owner, the fatal shootings of four Marines and a Navy petty officer at two military installations in Chattanooga, Tenn., last week were the final straw.
Andy Hallinan, owner of Florida Gun Supply in Inverness, says, effective immediately, his shop is a “Muslim-free zone,” reports WDBO in Orlando, Fla.
In a video posted online, Hallinan discusses the history of the Confederate flag and goes on to say, “Our leaders are telling you Islam is a peaceful religion full of tolerance and love and hope. Don’t believe their lies.”
He plans to offer concealed-carry classes and open his range to anyone who wants to use it.
In a statement, the Council on American-Islamic Relations says it will ask the Department of Justice to investigate possible civil rights violations.
Queen of the road
She waits for no one.
Queen Elizabeth II, apparently impatient as she drove herself to church, swerved her Jaguar X-Type onto the grass to go around a young family strolling in Windsor Great Park, The Telegraph reports.
Despite veering around the couple, who was with their two children — one on a tricycle and one in a stroller — the monarch smiled and waved as she proceeded down the 2.6-mile Long Walk, says Scarlett Vincent, who was visiting from Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire with her husband, Toby Core.
“We actually didn’t have time to get out of the way, as we were in a world of our own,” Vincent recalls. “I turned to (Core) and just said, “Oh my God, it’s the queen.”
Old-school execution for Snowden?
If Saxby Chambliss gets his way, leaker Edward Snowden would be publicly hanged.
“We need to hang him on the courthouse square as soon as we get our hands on him,” the former Georgia lawmaker, who was the top Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, told students at the University of Georgia Terry College of Business, according to The Hill.
“I hope none of you have any sympathy for him.”
Chambliss’ remarks were made during a discussion about the theft of 22 million people’s data from the Office of Personnel Management.
“Just like with Snowden, we’re going to lose American lives as a result of this breach,” he warned.
Snowden has sought refuge in Russia for the past two years to avoid U.S. espionage charges.
