Recent Trials should have taught you plenty. I’ve always believed in our Justice system, and the recent events & trials have re-enforced that belief. The day after the reading of the Rittenhouse verdict I held an Arizona Concealed Carry permit class with 29 students. It was exciting to me because the class represented persons wanting

Washington Watch Like many Americans, I was overjoyed by news that a Georgia jury had found three white men guilty of the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, a young Black man.
