Progress!

Yes, sadly, progress in America is major retailers finally deciding to no longer sell assault-style weapons to its customers.

On Wednesday, Dick's Sporting Goods announced it was immediately ending sales of all assault-style rifles in its stores. The retailer will also no longer sell high-capacity magazines and will not sell a gun to anyone under 21 years of age, regardless of local laws.

The decision was made in direct response to the Parkland school shooting as they revealed the shooter bought a gun (not the one used in the massacre) from a Dick's store in November.

Unlike other corporations that have stopped selling rifles in the past, Dick's is penetrating the national gun debate — calling on elected officials to enact "common sense gun reform" by passing laws to raise the minimum age of purchase to 21.

Don't hold out hope for a blowout sale either — Dick's will remove all AR-15s and other semi-automatic rifles from its stores and websites.

Filed under: Gay Gay GayBusted!Sad SadViolenceScary!Disgusting!Viral: NewsLGBT

So scary.

We're so glad he was caught before he could cause some serious harm.

Just hours after the tragic shooting at an Orlando gay club that killed 49 people and injured dozens on Sunday, police in Santa Monica, California thwarted another potential massacre when they arrested James Wesley Howell as he was headed to LA Gay Pride with a lot of weapons and explosives.

Now, we're learning just how deadly that scary situation could have been.

Recent reports say that the cops found a loaded assault rifle that had been rigged to shoot twice as much. According to authorities, the high-powered weapon was loaded with a 30-round magazine, and had ANOTHER inverted 30-round magazine taped to it.

Former FBI agent James Wedick explained that this mechanism would have allowed the 20-year-old to reload another 30 rounds almost immediately, doubling his ability to quickly kill people.

And we know you must be thinking it's incredibly hypocritical for someone who has purchased a war weapon to be preaching about regulating the sale of these guns, but hear him out.

After explaining his past history with the armed forces — including his training and familiarity with rifles life this one — and explaining how the gun in the photo works, Brandyn explains he views it more as a piece of memorabilia than a weapon he ever intends to use, writing:

Watch This Christian Evangelist Whip Out His Semiautomatic Assault Rifle To Protest Same-Sex Marriage In America!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikFacebookCrazzzzyViral: NewsControversyLGBT

So here's a normal guy…

Joshua Feuerstein, a Christian evangelist with a big Facebook presence, doesn't like same-sex marriage.

In fact, he doesn't like it so much, that he decided to pull out his semiautomatic assault rifle and show his followers just how much he was willing to stand against same-sex marriage in what he believes is a defense of Christianity.

[ Video: Kids Answer Questions About Same-Sex Marriage ]

Feuerstein took to Facebook in a wild, fast-talking video, alleging that last month's Supreme Court decision about same-sex marriage isn't about equal rights, but rather, about allowing non-Christians to attack Christianity.

In the video, he complains about companies that have received fines for refusing to provide goods and services for same-sex marriages, and then says, as he pulls out his assault rifle:
