In today’s extended Politics Segment of episode, Rob provides his thoughts and insights after reviewing all 364 pages of the document. (Just a note… not ALL 364 pages are new rules.) Rob breaks down the rules, removing hype and sensationalism. Should you be concerned? 

In today’s Education Segment, Rob talks about the realities of using a kit gun as your primary self defensive weapon. Is it a good idea? What should you be concerned about? Are there added liability concerns?
