Days after a lone gunman rained terror down on a crowd of music lovers in Las Vegas, six out of 10 respondents told Gallup they thought gun laws should be more strict.
I heard an interesting interview recently. Terry Meiners interviewed Former Governor Steve Beshear regarding his recent book release. Probably the most startling revelation dealt with his belief in Magic. As he told Terry, he has a horse named Magic.
