Spray Painting Guns

A growing trend of guns being spray painted to look like fake ones is growing, according to U.S. Marshals.

Cherry was arrested during Operation Triple Beam. “It’s hard to detect as well, if it’s white, it blends in a little better,” said Mike Quarles, the Gulf Coast Regional Task Force Commander. When an officer is deciding on if you’re a threat, a painted gun only adds confusion.

When I was growing up, we had a 10 run rule when we were playing baseball. The first team up by 10 was declared the winner no matter how many innings we played. They needed a 40-point rule for the Ole Miss Saturday, and that still wouldn’t have been enough. Final from Oxford…Ole Miss 70 and Louisiana-Monroe 21. Up next…they’ll be at Arkansas at 6t:30.
