That'll -- -- you know it's partly.
Your responses to do you look around this is some folks that you're not sure.
That you you know necessarily would see -- -- but it's -- it's great that I think just to reflect.
Visitors -- kids so what that's just.
When -- one -- to delay until senator John turn.

You know -- come back to Washington specifically to vote on that band.
Notwithstanding what the other it would -- do it quickly did.

I do supply support the Second Amendment I don't see anybody who's about changes to get rid -- that are threatened that.
It's too -- in America.
That that we are.
A country that protects that that right that goes back our founding this deeper than that you know lots of people can't -- people believe that want to write a self defense -- they deserve it.
