I know the penalties are stiff getting caught schlepping around with an unlicensed firearm here.

“That once you let the Commies in, it takes rifles to dislodge them” That’s an interesting way of saying when a Communist is democratically elected, they have to be removed by force and a military dictatorship installed. “The Communists are adept at achieving power by levering historically small vo...
