The full text of the 2nd Amendment reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” If only our current politicians could operate in such a straightforward manner.
Living large on the taxpayers’ tab. Ol’ Pluggsy misses with both barrels. And — whistlin’ past the crime scene. All this — plus — LAMBY-BOMBS?! Presented in 1080 hi-def, FOR FREE! It’s the Great Eight, from the Personal Liberty Digest™!
