RE: Confrontational politics and the Second Amendment

I read with interest Jessica’s post about the flyers that were placed on people’s cars at Gov. Nathan Deal’s recent event. While I’m not exactly a fan of our Governor, his record on the Second Amendment in Congress wasn’t terrible. He received an “A” from the National Rifle Association in 2010, his last year in […]
