    On more than one occasion, the police have saved my life. When a deranged Bernie Sanders supporter spewed 200 rounds of ammunition onto the baseball field, I was only a few steps away from meeting my maker. Congressman Steve Scalise almost did. Capitol Hill Police and a brave policewoman from Alexandria battled the gunman and brought him down.

    Just recently, an angry mob surrounded my wife and I, threatening to kill us. If you watch the video you can tell by our faces we absolutely believed the threats hurled at us. Once again police saved our lives.

    For the record, both times the police officers were both Black and white, male and female. The narrative that the violence around us all revolves around race is false. Recently, when discussing the burning of Portland and Seattle, a black Dallas-Fort Worth airport police officer explained to me: “It’s not about race. It’s about right and wrong.”

    Raids really shouldn't happen at all. If a person can't be arrested because he chooses to never leave his house, I see that as a win/win for all parties involved.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or serious, but you are making a lot of sense.

    Edit: I just realized this got passed in the KENTUCKY legislature. Rand's federal bill addressing the issue still hasn't passed.
