    You can tell the holidays are here and I wouldn’t be surprised if alcohol or drugs or financial problems are involved somewhere down the line………always hate to see these incidences take place since so much suffering is involved with many family members involved and when policemen are involved, it really puts the cherry on top of the cake. I hope they take Mr. Moss’s guns away from him that he had either under a conceal carry permit or a permit that goes along with his job for the sake of all of the family members and the citizens in the area.

    To all of the golden oldies out there in our gun culture community, brought to us by politicians like Sutton, be sure to check out thebillmillershow.com and chill out to some fun music from the 40’s, 50’s, etc. You won’t be seeing or hearing Miley doing her twerking nor Robin Thicke singing his Blurred Lines………….just some fun music while making those holiday goodies for your loved ones (I don’t think City Hall or Gilhaus and his Board will be getting any from me)…………

  3. Judith, who is Robin Thicke and what is a Blurred Line?
