As the occasional shot is sent in the direction of the White House or Capital, Rep Mike Pence explains that this is nothing more than an understandable expression of frustration at Democrats who have betrayed the nation,...
The Ohio Militia is calling the bluff of the GOP and NRA in ways I never imagined possible. This could be a lot of fun, and I guess I should add, scary as hell.
