No problemo.
“Oh yeah, we do,” Michael Dolan assures her not once, but twice. He’s a legislative representative for the Teamsters.
Here’s the video:

Anyone who really cares can find out where a candidate stands on an issue that’s important to him or her — one like guns and support for Second Amendment Rights civil rights — in just a few minutes. If only more of them would….
