  1. Glazer, you are two faced!  I’m a veteran, disabled, and all you do is a few sissy push ups to bring awareness that vets commit suicide.   Your a joke, do something useful like fight for a COLA for us veterans.  Write a bill that who streamline Veterans to mental heath facilities, which will extremely help veterans in desire need.  Quit giving our money to tefugees, you treat them better than our veterans and all americans.

    If you are so pro military and so concerned, why do you write so many bills against our 2nd Amendment?   You have taken an Oath, moron, to protect our constitutional rights.  I spent 15 + years in the military and taken an Oath to protect those rights and I did!

    You lack leadership,  the favor for the Democratic party this month is Gun Control.  Did you miss the headlines, it was ISIS that committed that horrific shooting.  Let’s see, we can’t stop illegal drugs, we can’t stop human trafficking,  we can’t stop illegals, so I get it.  If it is illegal it to much work and we might hurt someone’s fellings.  Thus, us democrats will attack on law abiding citizens and infringe on their constitutional rights.

    Glazer, be a leader and if it’s illegal kick butt, don’t worry about your democrat buddies and how they feel – do your job – period!
