They found a stockpile of landmines, hand grenades, dynamite, and other explosives in the south Tulsa gun shop. Yeah....I know, the headline's the kicker right? What would they expect to find in a gun shop?

And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.
