Too bad NY makes it nearly impossible for law abiding citizens to exercise their right carry a firearm.

If trump had a son, he'd be a rapist. Oh wait, he does. Just a matter of time before the tapes come out.

JoMahma McWilliams from Brownsville says:
You must be thinking of creepy Joe Biden’s crackhead son Hunter, the one who slept with his brother’s widow. I wonder if creepy Joe ever sniffed her hair. What a family!

Nope I was thinking about trumps kids. These rapists all hang together. Look at the photos of trump and Epstein, two peas in a pod. I don't give AF about Biden, he's an old white fool too.

Let’s not distract from the fool in the article. Looks like the same guy who tried to rape a 73 year old woman. Probably related to the psycho who stabbed a woman to death on the 3 train in Brownsville. Obama really screwed up with that Hope and Change thing - it didn’t work!

I blame Obama for all my shortcomings in life, instead of manning up and taking responsibility.
