    The Laquan McDonald “blacks have the right to assault police officers” hippies are planning on blocking traffic in downtown Chicago today and I have a question: Can I buy a clip for my Glock 20 that holds 16 rounds or is that a pre-Clinton freedom?

    Protip: providing the annoying dirtbags with a hickory scalp massage is more entertaining and gives you a good aerobic workout. Bring your friends! Support your local police!
