You shouldn't believe him nor bloombergs LIES about about lawful gun owners. More gun restrictions only impair lawful gun owners. Look at the crime rates in cities & countries where we have the most restrictive gun laws!

Yes this is a repost from yesterday. But the reason being that the roads that were repaired under budget are falling apart again. It's about the quality of the repairs.

Give us repairs that last decades for our money not months.
