You shouldn't believe him nor bloombergs LIES about about lawful gun owners. More gun restrictions only impair lawful gun owners. Look at the crime rates in cities & countries where we have the most restrictive gun laws!

Yes this is a repost from yesterday. But the reason being that the roads that were repaired under budget are falling apart again. It's about the quality of the repairs.

I could do the repairs under budget and early, but I will have to do them yearly.

Give us repairs that last decades for our money not months.
