Re: Priorities for 2019 legislative session

Charles’ bill needs a catchy name, and we need to come up with it before the anti-gun press does.

Re: Explosion at London tube station - Breaking

Time will tell I suppose. For some reason this reminds me of when I had a job as a gofer for a construction company. One day I was at the boss's house, sitting outside behind his garage eating my lunch. I was behind the garage because the boss was on the other side (front) welding on something. A fe...
