Is Rob Pincus Anti-Gun? Let’s Ask Him! ~ VIDEO

U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- First, let me be clear that I believe that all gun control is an infringement on our God-given rights. The only gun law I think we need is “shall not be infringed.” Some people don’t have a line in the sand that they are not willing to cross. I am not one of those people. I have a very clear line in the sand, and I am right up against it. Not one more inch! Not one more concession! These statements are not just me spewing rhetoric. It is something I believe in with ev...
