It's the same thing any PR company does well: damage control.
Yes, and it's also when we started hearing that the 2nd Amendment is about having the right to keep a gun for self defense in the home.
Curiously, I have gone back and read it again ... several times ... and none of the copies I've been able to find seem to have the words "in the home" anywhere to be found.
I know, you know, and a lot of thinking people know. It's the others we have to worry about.
