Personal Defense Tip: Avoid the Kool-Aid

The devolution of Detroit continues apace. The latest shooting that was either strange or heinous enough to actually attract the attention of the local media apparently started as an argument over who whips up the tastiest pitcher of Kool-Aid.

VCDL: Virginia Attorney General Renders Opinion on Motor Vehicle Carry

Plenty of local gun laws are needlessly (and intentionally) vague.
