    What a loss. Greg Evers was not only a steward for our Second Amendment rights, he was our voice for all personal rights as set out in our Constitution and Bill of Rights. We will be hard pressed to find such a caring individual to fill his shoes. My condolences to his family and a word of thanks for sharing him with us.
