And some idiots wonder why I have my own gun.

Selecting who they’ll visit based on their own research, they advise (warn?) them they must behave lawfully at any meetings they attend, or protests they plan, even when they aren’t planning any.
John Laforet, president of Wind Concerns Ontario, says at least four WCO members — interestingly, all women — have been approached so far…
