My home. We believe our handguns make a nice fashion statement.
“They will model their concealed-carry statute on New York Citys rules. Dont expect shall issue CCW to come from this.”
I disagree. Of course Illannoy will do what they can to frustrate the right to bear arms, but the may-issue game is about to die as well; there is a court decision in MD that is turning that game on it’s ear.

With so many guns and ammunition being bought since Obambi took office, it's apparent that The People are getting tired of collectivism, but ready.

Hi guys!
