I asked Del Anderson to patron this bill. After a house fire destroyed my concealed permit, Prince William County Cluck Michele McQuigg and her deputy Boob FitzSimmons took 61 days to reissue the permit after I requested it.

Waldo Jaquith writes:

Thank you so much for that explanation, Harry. Your explanation itself was just one sentence, but it says all that needs to be said for people to understand the purpose of the bill.

Dave Briggman writes:

McQuigg and her band of clowns are about the most inept Clerk's Office I've come in contact with in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
