When she worked for her parent’s security company she carried a Smith .357.
My guess is that she is still packing heat.
Yup, and she was only 17 then!
I LOVE THIS WOMAN.
We may be outnumbered. But we are NOT outgunned.
They surround us? Good. Then we can fire in ANY direction.
“We’re surrounded. That simplifies the problem!”
CHESTY PULLER, USMC
I do too.
Me too friend, me too...
Today’s Republican women are very impressive! Michigan needs to trade up.
