[international day of peace]

Topic: United Nations
In case you were looking for a reason not to shoot anyboday today, here’s one: today is Peace Day, [Correction: Peace Day is September 21, so shoot away until then] which the UN declared should be “observed as a day of global ceasefire and non-violence, an invitation to all nations and people to honour a cessation of hostilities during the Day.”

If you’re keen on irony, you can celebrate by buying yourself an assualt weapon for “for target shooting, shooting competitions, hunting, collecting, and most importantly, self-defense,” as the NRA puts it. Because they’re legal now. You might also be interested in the awkwardly named National Police Shooting Championships, which sounds like some sort of gangsta-rap fantasy camp. But it isn’t.
