The Brad

Born and stayed in Kennewick, WA - I think I'll probably die here. Sports dork, Baseball and Football especially - Mariners/Reds and Bengals fan. I try to get out of town as much as possible to see live shows. Forget Disney World, the Gorge is the happiest place on earth! To this day, my favorite show was prbably Snoop Dogg and Slightly Stoopid at the Gorge. That was a real party! I always need to go boating more during the summer. There is nothing better than just getting out on the river and you can't do it enough. That's the life, man. I'm pretty laid back and am down for whatever... As for music, you can catch me listening to just about anything. Favorites include: Periphery, Dr. Dre, Pantera, Sublime, Slipknot, August Burns Red, Pepper, A Day To Remember, Deftones, Kanye West, Nonpoint, Kid Cudi, Bring Me The Horizon, Kendrick Lamar, Zac Brown Band, The Supervillains... Shoot me a question or send me a random 'What's up?!' \m/ Rock on \m/ Instagram/Twitter @TheBrad509

Here Is the List of Guns That Could Be Banned in Sen. Diane Feinstein’s New Gun Control Bill

California State Senator Diane Feinstein will be introducing the latest gun control bill to Congress on Thursday. The proposal would include magazine size limitations and would make more than 100 specialty firearms, certain semi-automatic rifles and assault rifles illegal. These new restrictions would not apply to the firearms that you currently own.

Even though a number of guns will be banned with this newly proposed legislation, that doesn't mean all will be illegal to sell, produce or own in the future.

Now, they are testing out a new pay to message feature. The first test subjects are the Corporate Facebook team, including CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
