    Woman saves multiple lives in VA department store

    Has anyone else seen this?

    I've never heard of Brandfords.

    I think you got tricked by a fake news site.

    Take a looksee at the main page for the site you linked, all kinds of clickbait stories. The "author" of the article you linked to has exactly ONE post - the one about the woman CHP. I also cannot find ANY references to this event on any other reputable news site. If you Google the perps name and the lady with the CHP's name, it comes up blank. If you google "Chief of Police Matthew Collingsworth" that also comes up blank. What jurisdiction in VA is the Chief in charge of? I should be able to find all sorts of public releases and statements attributable to the Chief, but not one is found. Also note the "article" does not say where in VA this occurred. I cannot find any web links to "Bradfords" store in Virginia.

    Until such a time as other more reputable news sites (non "clickbait") start carrying this "news" I'd place it in the "highly questionable" bin. Nothing in the article adds up and there is a general lack of specifics.

    All lamestream press media is financed by click bait click through, hence the rise of the alternative media and the alternative right.

    Here's the final nail in the coffin that proves this is fake: The picture of the woman walking down the supermarket isle is photoshopped from an image taken in Port Vila, Vanuatu - which is on the OTHER side of the world from the US.

    Link to image, which was taken on Dec 11, 2014: https://www.flickr.com/photos/thomas...s/16238344850/

    This story is FAKE.

    Good catch. I just looked at the Boston Tribune page, and their contact page, to recognize their "News you can trust" meme and the third party e-mail address.

    Someone else here on OCDO has been trolled and Rick Rolled by these liars.

    New Federal Gun Law Prevents Open Carry In All 50 States

    "Representatives from the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) have announced the implementation of a new federal gun law preventing the practice of ‘open carry’ in all 50-states."

    Truth or Fiction?
    The Truth: A fake news website is behind false rumors that a new federal regulation makes it illegal to open carry guns in all 50 states.

    IMHO, no big deal. It was a bit fun to go read some of the articles. I was half expecting one claiming hiLIARy is a robot or such.

    Us ol' timers have never been fooled by such as that - that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
