NH – OPINION – Jonna Carter: Pistol Packin’ Mama

With 2020’s hat-trick of COVID-19, Joe Biden’s win and the NRA’s legal woes, gun sales in the U.S. have exploded. This year has seen the greatest surge in American history.

My best friend used to inundate me with emojis simply because she knew such a barrage would cause me to shriek. Self-made entertainment at my expense. (She has been well-schooled by the master.)
