Last Updated on July 31, 2022 Colts General Manager Chris Ballard used his first press conference of the new season to call for gun control. The GM expressed his disbelief that teenagers can purchase “AK-15 automatics,” even though automatic weapons have long been banned for use by the general public.
Ballard opened his press conference by offering condolences to the families involved in the Greenwood mall shooting . Three people were killed in the shooting before the gunman was taken down by an armed citizen.
The shooting took place just under 15 miles from Lucas Oil Stadium, where the Colts play home games.
“To me, it’s a lot of common sense, and we lack it right now in this country. It’s a shame,” Ballard said. “Highland Park, Uvalde, Greenwood, Buffalo. I mean, when does some common sense come to play and when does this end? When do our elected officials actually do something about it instead of their own political gain? Both sides are completely wrong.”
Ballard falsely compared semi-automatic rifles to “military-style weapons,” a common talking point among gun control advocates.
“I’m not anti-gun, but I’m anti-military-style weapons,” Ballard continued. “It blows my mind away that an 18-year-old kid can walk in and buy an AK-15 automatic weapon. That makes no sense. Zero. It’s a shame that we live in a country that can’t come to an agreement because of politics on doing the right thing for our country. It makes zero sense. Zero.” Indianapolis Colts GM Chris Ballard: “It blows my mind that an 18-year-old can walk in and buy an AK-15 automatic weapon.” What is an AK-15 automatic weapon? 🧐

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
