  1. very bold step. chief justice should take a step ahead and band weapons also.

  2. I'm impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that's both equally educative and engaging,
    and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy
    that I stumbled across this in my search for
    something regarding this.
