A New Day Dawns With Osama’s Death

As were many others, I was elated and pleased to hear the great news last night that after nearly 10 years, Osama bin Laden had been found and made to answer for his crimes against humanity. Usually, I would cringe somewhat at the thought of rejoicing at the death of another human being, but this death dealer was no human being.

Pro’s Picks- Smith & Wesson SD40 Home Defense Kit
