Meet the Man who has enough weapons to start a civil war called (Mel Bernstein) 

If Mel Bernstein were an African, he would have been a ‘war lord’.

The armoury of Mel is better than that of some 

In a place called El Paso County located in Colorado,  lies a massive 260 acre home turned military museum named ‘Dragonland’ by its owner.

Mel Bernstein is a 71-year man, originally from New York. He prefers to go by his nickname the Dragon Man, which was inspired by Harley Davidson.

His museum collection is estimated to be worth above $10 million, while his gun collection alone is estimated at $8 million.

This armoury is stored in different rooms, which are named after countries that have gone to war with the United States. These wars span between World War I and Afghanistan. The size of the room is 65,000 square feet.

Mel also has a reimagined World War II bunker with its complete bullet-riddled pots and pans. This machine of war has its uniformed mannequins stationed at anti-aircraft bazookas.

Among other collections in his museum include machine guns, military vehicles, landmines, military swords, grenades and countless other unused war memorabilia. These are all housed in 86 show cabinets and a tour of the museum would take 3-4 hours to be able to see everything.

Amazingly, everything works and nothing is fake. Since it’s a private collection and not a government museum everything can work.

Surely Nigerians would have loved to be this man.  (Letters of Thought)


These firearms make him feel so comfortable that his bedroom isn’t spared from being decorated with hundreds of guns hung up on the walls. This is to portray his obsession with weaponry.

Mel has earned himself a reputation with a whopping 37,000 followers on Facebook. More so, this place is visited by hundreds of weekend visitors who come to shoot firearms at his range or to visit his military museum.

Protesters burned an orange-haired Donald Trump head in effigy, lit bonfires and blocked traffic late Wednesday as anger over the billionaire’s election to the presidency spilled onto the streets of major cities.

From New York to Los Angeles, thousands of people marched, rallied and chanted in around 10 cities against the billionaire president-elect a day after his stunning upset win, some carrying signs with slogans such as “Not our President” and “Love trumps hate.”

Humans of New York creator Brandon Stanton pens open letter to Donald Trump…and it’s gone viral!

Humans of New York creator and blogger
Brandon Stanton who usually lets his subjects
do the talking has written an open letter to
Donald Trump. In the letter posted to social
media on Monday, 32-year-old Stanton summed
up the many issues he has with the Republican
presidential frontrunner, notably his
controversial remarks about Muslims,
immigrants and refugees.
The post has since gone viral garnering over a
million Likes and thousands of Shares. Stanton
said he has tried to stay away from politics but
he could no longer stand by and not take a
stand against “violence and prejudice”
“An Open Letter to Donald Trump:
Mr. Trump,
I try my hardest not to be political. I’ve refused
to interview several of your fellow candidates. I
didn’t want to risk any personal goodwill by
appearing to take sides in a contentious
election. I thought: ‘Maybe the timing is not
right.’ But I realize now that there is no correct
time to oppose violence and prejudice. The time
is always now. Because along with millions of
Americans, I’ve come to realize that opposing
you is no longer a political decision. It is a
moral one.
I’ve watched you retweet racist images. I’ve
watched you retweet racist lies. I’ve watched
you take 48 hours to disavow white supremacy.
I’ve watched you joyfully encourage violence,
and promise to ‘pay the legal fees’ of those
who commit violence on your behalf. I’ve
watched you advocate the use of torture and
the murder of terrorists’ families. I’ve watched
you gleefully tell stories of executing Muslims
with bullets dipped in pig blood. I’ve watched
you compare refugees to ‘snakes,’ and claim
that ‘Islam hates us.’
I am a journalist, Mr. Trump. And over the last
two years I have conducted extensive
interviews with hundreds of Muslims, chosen at
random, on the streets of Iran, Iraq, and
Pakistan. I’ve also interviewed hundreds of
Syrian and Iraqi refugees across seven different
countries. And I can confirm— the hateful one
is you.
Those of us who have been paying attention
will not allow you to rebrand yourself. You are
not a ‘unifier.’ You are not ‘presidential.’ You
are not a ‘victim’ of the very anger that you’ve
joyfully enflamed for months. You are a man
who has encouraged prejudice and violence in
the pursuit of personal power. And though your
words will no doubt change over the next few
months, you will always remain who you are.
Sincerely,
Brandon Stanton
