Responsible gun own Billy Swaggerty claims a stripper stole 16 firearms, including assault rifles (screengrab).

A self-identified “responsible” gun owner in Kokomo, Indiana is blaming a stripper for the theft of 16 firearms from the bedroom where he let her stay despite the objections of his wife.

“And that’s another thing…don’t let strippers in your house,” Billy Swaggerty told WXIN Fox 59 News.

Apparently, the woman moved-in with the married couple last winter.

“And I put her in the bedroom with the safes and it came back and bit me,” Swaggerty explained. “We didn’t know that she was a stripper.”

Swaggerty claims a $10,000 value for the stolen firearms.

“Word is is that she went to her drug dealer and sold my guns for $450,” said Swaggerty. “My worst fear is one of my guns is gonna kill a child.”

Yet Swaggerty told Fox 59 he still considers himself a “responsible legal gun owner.”

“I had probably three .22 rifles, two shotguns, numerous pistols, I had an SKS which is .762 millimeter, I had an AK-74 which is a .554 millimeter and I had an AR-15 which I just got for Christmas which is a .556 millimeter,” Swaggerty noted.

‘At the edge of an abyss’: Experts warn America could plunge into sectarian violence after election

Published

Experts on international conflict resolution are warning that the United States is on the verge of seeing a wave of sectarian violence unleashed by the 2020 presidential election.

In interviews with NPR, several experts said the United States is exhibiting troubling signs that other countries that have been plagued by sectarian violence have shown in recent decades.

"We thought we were immune to it," said Tim Phillips, the founder and CEO of the nonprofit Beyond Conflict. "When we looked at our own problems, we thought: 'Of course we have some big issues, but we're in a sense immune from an us-versus-them mindset, a sectarian mindset, where there could be real conflict.'"

It is no secret President Donald Trump loves to bask in MAGA glory at his rallies, but a new survey shows his campaign blitz may be backfiring as voters wonder if the president bears responsibility for hosting potential super-spreader events while COVID-19 batters the Midwestern United States.

A new survey, compiled of voters in six battleground states—Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin—found that a great number of voters view Trump "much less" or "somewhat less favorably" due to his continued behavior amid the coronavirus pandemic, reports US News. Despite alarming upticks in cases across the Midwest, Trump has continued to visit vulnerable states and hold massive rallies all while disregarding COVID-19 mitigation practices.

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough blasted Jared Kushner for bragging about actions that resulted in tens of thousands of deaths from the coronavirus.

President Donald Trump's son-in-law and White House adviser told reporter Bob Woodward the president had wrested control of the pandemic response away from the doctors, and the "Morning Joe" host said that admission was damning.

"We actually have the 'Perry Mason' moment," Scarborough said. "We actually have the person on the witness stand who is actually testifying against interests for himself and for Donald Trump. They deliberately, deliberately 'freed' America from the doctors and the scientists, so by the end of this, 400,000 people will be dead. Almost as many Americans who died in World War II."
