Michigan’s Governor Elect Whitmer – Politically Silent on Guns

Michigan’s Governor Elect did not run on guns. Gretchen Whitmer is not a 2nd Amendment ally for the state by any means but Gun Control didn’t take a stage position on her platform.

The man claims the Jews are …

Chopping around 6 inches of barrel off, or in whatever configuration you finalize the carbine, is still very close to the original weight. Getting …
