    Re: Michigan Republican
    ” Bond joined the U.S. Navy out of high school, and served two terms as an active Military Police.”

    Well, either the training was damn poor or she was a very poor learner. On the other hand, writing from north of the US border, I have the thought, “Why in blazes was she wearing a bra holster in the first place?”.

    I realise that, at least from the view up here that many Republicans are a bit reality challenges but a bra holster??

    I must say though this reminds me of a case back in the 1970’s or 80’s in New York state were a minister, worried that the current (democratic) president was going to implement gun controls, went out and bought a handgun. He proceeded to demonstrate gun handling safety to his family and promptly shot himself to death.
