Louisville Courier-Journal reports that the students are “armed in a major way” and belong to several different schools after it started at Frost Middle School.

The gang of students showed up to Waterfront Park on March 22 to fight another local gang, Trill Young Savages, or TYS, according to an FBI memo.

“TYS members apparently didn’t show, which is when the ‘mob violence’ ensued,” the agent wrote.

The teens committed at least 20 robberies assaults and acts of vandalism.

A gunmaker is suing the ATF for claiming the company is selling a gun silencer.

Gunmaker Sig Sauer said that the ATF wrong classified its “muzzle brake” as a silencer.

“If classified as a silencer, no market exists for the subject device given that it will not silence, muffle, or diminish the report of a firearm and yet it would still be subject to the burdensome requirements set forth above as if it really is a silencer,” Sig argues through

Manchester attorney Mark Rouvalis and Virginia attorney Stephen Halbrook.

By classifying it as a silencer, sales will drop significantly because people won’t want to deal with the “required burdens” that come with a silencer.
