90% Figure Quoted by President Dead Wrong

The left doesn’t believe in the right to self-defense, especially with firearms.  They don’t have experience with firearms, and as such they’re frightened by them.  When you’re frightened by something, the thing you’re scared of has power over you.  Misery loves company: nobody wants to be the only one who’s powerless, so it’s not enough [...]
