An analysis...

THE HEART OF TEXAS -- I don’t know about you, but personally, I am sick and tired of hearing people tell me what I do or do not need. In particular, I refer to the ongoing national debate on firearms, and whether or not anyone needs these so-called “assault weapons,” to include the AR-15 -- the most popular firearm platform in the country.  . . .
