Domestic violence and the law!

Well, it turns out that nobody enjoys the idea of domestic violence, and these bills will (if passed) attempt to prevent domestic violence by enforcing protective orders and by treating domestic violence as a felony.

Concealed carry reciprocity seems like it would be an entirely simple matter, but that just is not the case.

VCU pwned St. Bonaventure on Sunday, and also a couple got engaged via a promotion, which you probably find super romantic or entirely unromantic, depending on your emotional makeup. Here are the pics.
