  • Seriously, what’s it going to take for those of us that are very concerned about AB109, as well as Prop .47 REPEALED!!
    They have no place existing in our society.
    They are both very dangerous for the rest of us who do obey the law.
    Neither of these ridiculous propositions help protect the American people.
    They both need to be REPEALED as quickly as possible.
    Build more prisons.
