      Thats a fact. The libs will rush out of their store & paste up another “no guns” sign. To be fair though, the only thing left that they have is executive order boy.

    I think is the first dummy in the bunch since 11/2011. I can live with that. There have probably been more criminal incidents involving bowlers, gardners, and librarians in the same time. Every group has duds, luckily ours has shockingly few.
