Just a reminder

Just a reminder there will be no 2nd Amendment Patriots meeting this month.  The next one will be January 25th.  I’m sure there will be some significant issues being approached by that time here in Indiana. The outcome will be determined by how many take an active role in the debates and how many stay hidden in the weeds.  The events listed below would be a good place to start if you have any concern about what the state of Indiana is facing in the next short session of...

This would have to be some welcome relief for the gangsters who's stressful job ...
