    welcome to the hell you kinda fcks create
    Senator Boxer joined colleagues to pass a federal ban on various semi-automatic firearms and established the COPS program.

    In the wake of the 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting, Boxer posted on Facebook that it was an “unspeakable tragedy” and she encouraged others to support “common-sense gun safety laws to protect our communities from these weapons of war.”[70]

  3. Uh, yeah, I’m not buying that BS. No ways she is not being protected with security at all time. No fkn way… If so, then these scum are wayyyy more arrogant than I thought….!

  4. Bah! Hit me up again when the title of the article includes something like “taken out by a sniper estimated to have been shooting from a location over 800yds away” 😉
