Now Who Has The Gun?



LAVOY FINICUM DEAD

OREGON LIVE: TIMELINE

OREGON LIVE: REACTIONS ARE "POURING IN"

AND SO THEY DID

It's about time. And I feel no remorse. My only hope now is that authorities will be able to get the
children out of that outpost safely.

The adults asked for what they got. They took an issue, brought it to Oregon, blew it way out of
proportion and took the law into their own hands. So the cops stood up, stepped in and
shot LaVoy Finicum. Then they arrested Ammon "asshole" Bundy, his brother Ryan and several
other militant morons.

They did it all before February 1. Very nice, thank you. (I am not being sarcastic, I mean every
word.)
