What’s Your Favorite Gun?
At least five of the six Republican guys running for Congress in the 5th CD cherish their guns. And so does the Democrat.
It’s a sentimental thing, sometimes. As candidate John Anderson puts it: “In my Last Will & Testament I am donating several prized firearms from my personal collection to a museum to be preserved indefinitely.”

And when I retired as your Sheriff. my duty weapon at the time. a 40 cal Glock was retired with me
