According to various gun shops around the country, sales of assault rifles have literally shot through the roof since the Nov. 4 presidential election.
The recent run on assault rifles and semi-automatic pistols would mean big profits if only shop owners had the supply to meet the high demand.
"I could sell a hundred ARs an hour, if I had them," said one gun owner who is patiently awaiting a delivery of AR15 carbines, AK-47s and high capacity magazines.
Assault rifles are the weapons of choice for hired killers, terrorists, the KKK, rappers and other like-minded individuals.
Gun shop owners deny the weapons are being stockpiled by racists and rednecks to kill hundreds of blacks, as some wild Internet rumors allege.
The shop owners say gun enthusiasts simply fear stricter gun laws under the new Obama-led administration. Obama is expected to impose the most divisive, anti-gun laws of any president in recent history.
The Clinton administration outlawed assault rifles in 1994, but was lax on enforcing the laws. The law expired in 2004 under the Bush administration.
Three female inmates at the Greene County jail in Indiana used a shower drain to pry open ceiling panels in their cell and escape for a night of passion, drinking and card playing with three male inmates who were being housed in a nearby cell.
Surveillance cameras failed to capture the escapes which occurred more than a dozen times. The women were busted when jail officials found notes in their cell detailing their sexual encounters with the male inmates. All six inmates now face felony charges.
Rapper T.I. testified in a Cincinnati, Ohio court on Friday during the trial of one of the suspects accused of shooting T.I.'s assistant and childhood friend Philant Johnson during a rolling gun battle on a Cincinnati highway.
A somber T.I. took the stand for approximately 40 minutes to describe the shooting incident that stemmed from an altercation at a Cincinnati nightclub in May 2006.
Licking his lips and narrowing his eyes, T.I. then described getting into the backseat of a black van, as Johnson sat in front of him. He said he realized very quickly that something unusual was going on as the van pulled away and he saw headlights going into oncoming traffic from a vehicle that was attempting to get alongside the black van. "Before I knew it, shots rang out," he said, explaining that they came from the left side of the van and that he immediately took cover as an unnamed person in his van returned fire.
Following the shootout, a white motorist stopped to help T.I. and those who weren't injured, transfer the dying Johnson from T.I.'s van, which was disabled, to another van for the trip to the hospital.
Asked what Johnson looked like when he dragged him from the vehicle, T.I. said with a hard stare at no one in particular, "lifeless," describing the blood running down his friends face, a shirt wet with blood and an entry wound on Johnson's left temple.
The defendant, Hosea Thomas' brother Padron Thomas has identified him as the shooter. It was Padron Thomas who drove the Jeep that allegedly chased the vans used by T.I. and his entourage on May 3, 2006.
T.I. denied allegations that he started the incident by "making it rain" at the Cincinnati club. Source
I didn't watch the AMAs' last night (yawn), but here are some pics courtesy of the picture man, Drew Reports. Yes, I was too lazy to look up the pics myself. And, yes these are the same pics every other blog is posting, but if I don't post 'em then you'll keep emailing me asking why I haven't posted any pics from the boring AMAs. So here you go.
This was Rev. Al's response to the following question:
"Rev. Al Sharpton, Do you believe that political leaders such as Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell are viewed as "house negroes" by other African Americans, by going along with the President against their beliefs?"
This is Rev. Al's response to Al-Qaeda calling Barack Obama a "house negro":
I knew there was something about Kanye West that I liked. I just couldn't put my finger on it. For all the doubters who said Rihanna would never snatch Beyonce's crown, do you believe now? (I know, it's hard to admit when you're wrong)
In a new interview with KROQ, Kanye West explains his recent statement regarding Britney and her VMA awards (also He talks about Rihanna career): "Im not trying to diss Britney or anything like that. One of my favorite songs last year was “Gimme Gimme.” Like, I love that record. But I just feel like Rihanna had a really breakout year and became the biggest artist… like Rihanna sells more records than me all together if you include her in national sales and she is arguably the biggest artist in the world right now.“Source
Now that the U.S. has elected its first Muslim president in Barack Obama, Michael Jackson is following suit by converting to Islam himself. According to The Sun UK, Jacko has changed his name in accordance with his new religion.
Jacko will henceforth be known as "Mikaeel":
The skint superstar, 50, donned Islamic garb to pledge allegiance to the Koran in a ceremony at a pal’s mansion in Los Angeles, The Sun can reveal.
Jacko sat on the floor wearing a tiny hat after an Imam was summoned to officiate — days before the singer is due to appear at London’s High Court where he is being sued by an Arab sheik.
A source told last night how Jacko, brought up as a Jehovah’s Witness, decided to convert as he used a studio at the home of his chum to record a new album.
An Imam was summoned from the mosque and Michael went through the shahada, which is the Muslim declaration of belief. Mikaeel is the name of one of Allah’s angels.
Jacko rejected an alternative name, Mustafa — meaning "the chosen one". Source
