  1. Please get these scum bags off our streets. No need for guns to be on the streets. They belong in the woods for hunting and that’s it. How many more people need to be hurt or killed for senseless acts of violence. Unfortunately someone innocent will be paying the price for these acts.

  2. Thank you for reporting news that we all want to hear. You guy are great, I can say I knew Matt and Jystin when they were starting out.
