Oh and there is an NRA Convention going on in town as well so it looks like all the bases are covered. Baseball has that hard round ball that can be directed toward a players head in time of strife, and we all know that before the gloves come off in hockey those sticks the players wield can be pretty deadly in the right hands.

When discussion turns to ending the wars in the middle east and bringing our military home, someone always raises a hand and says "wait a second here - let's make sure our Second Amendment right to bear arms is not infringed upon before we move on to middle-east issues. Oh, and when we want to discuss woman's right and gay rights, are we going to have to take a seat until the Second Amendment right to bear arms is secure?
This Ann Wagner looks like a Sarah Palin clone without a bear in the background.
