Chris - 39 days ago - secure2.convio.net
Stop Trayvon Martin's killer, and more like him, from carrying loaded guns in our communities. Oppose S. 2188 and S. 2213 These bills would force our state to honor the concealed carry permits of other states with abhorrently low standards.

Environment  (tags: mining, Governor Walker, Trying to Poison the water, Fracking, Sand strip, pollution, healthconditions, destruction )
