Probably explains why Les Baer moved his factory across the river to Iowa last year.

When I first read that I thought to myself; Glad I don't live there. Then it struck me. This could spread like wildfire. Coming to a state near you. :( :(

If you're not an NRA member, it's time to join. They may have done or said things in the past that may have upset some folks but this is war and we need to unite and fight for our right.

Character & honesty being subverted by zealots with an agenda.

Be a cold day in hell before they get a dime from me.

Looks like I'll probably rejoin the NRA, just because DJ doesn't like them! :-) Just kidding you Dan....... on the reason, at least.

Even though we give Dan shit, we all know many of his criticisms are correct, both politically, and regarding the NRA.

My choice to rejoin the NRA will be much like my political choices. Because the "OTHER SIDE" is just to scary!
