Bear Gun?

Outdoor Life: There’s nothing new about the quest for a good bear-country sidearm, and what we’re carrying is evolving. Giant revolvers, though still popular, are somewhat antiquated.

It’s called principles

I noticed that we were getting some traffic from the Daily Kos and so I tracked back to this article about Kathryn “Kat” Gates-Skipper who was scheduled to speak at the Republican Convention next week.
