  1. Caraway is Dallas Mayor Pro Tem.

    This is the same pustule who tried to make political hay with his supporters by being vocally opposed having the NRA Annual Meeting here in Dallas. He led a protest movement aimed at causing NRA to move venues and was not subtle in the slander he promoted against the organization.

    While he was doing ant-NRA propaganda, he was lining his pockets with bribes.

    Shouldn’t Bloomberg’s group really be named:
    “Illegal Mayors against Legal Guns”?

    I’ll enjoy watching as he is led away in handcuffs to the Federal Bureau Of Prisons van. Join me for popcorn anyone?
