    Default Slighly Off Topic

    I say "slightly" because I know a huge chunk of firefighters with military backgrounds and others that shoot as a hobby. The video I am linking to is of a legal immigrant addressing the gun issue at a meeting in Hartford, CT, yesterday.

    This man was not born in the US and English isn't his first language. However, he has a clearer understanding of US history and rights than a lot of low information voters. I love this country. People like this make me even prouder.

    I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I am sure we have forum members who won't like what he has to say. My guess is that they are in the minority.

    I concur....
