To McGovern Ken (I believe) said there has been a "remarkable" drop in crime in Texas. I said it it possible Texas cooked the book to make it appear there was a huge drop in crime.

Speaking at the 56th annual Weatherby Foundation International Hunting and Conservation Award dinner in Reno, Nev., LaPierre said, “Obama wants to turn the idea of “absolutism” into another dirty word, just another word for extremism. He wants you to accept the idea of “principles” as he sees fit to define them. It’s a way of...
