A little over a week ago a girl’s softball team in the Willamette OR area decided to raise $6000 by raffling an AR – 15 rifle. The 15 girls are age 14 – 18, are from 3 local high schools (Centennial, Gresham, and Milwaukie) and are raising the funds to represent Oregon in the West Regional Tournament. The tournament is to be held in Lancaster CA starting today, 23 JUL, and running through the 27th.

In June of this year the Russian Federation’s Duma approved a finalized version of anti-extremist/anti-terrorist legislation. Vladimir Putin signed the bill 7 JUL.

To be honest, we might be the weeds ourselves. Let’s not be complacent. Let’s not think more highly of ourselves than we do our neighbors. Let God take care of gathering in the crop.
