Which is more objectionable

In New Hampshire open carry has been legal for a while but until recently concealed carry required a permit. Now concealed carry is a universal right. Do you object more to one or the other or are both okay?

Kirsten Gillibrand is about to have a bad week

Newsweek reveals the Al Franken hit squad was another electronic lynching...

"White nationalist provocateurs, a pair of fake news sites, an army of Twitter bots and other cyber tricks helped derail Democratic Senator Al Franken last year, new research shows."
