Re: Evidence Shows Gun Control Works

The best way to get Republicans to support gun control is to distribute guns to African-Americans in the inner city to combat crime because, you know, guns prevent crime. You are aware many gun control measures were put forth in the 1930's, by Democrats, were done in racist ways. Look at the state ...

Re: Remaining AA and UA Dash-8 100/200/300

CRJ-200 and 700's operate off ROA's runways without blocked off seats. Also Allegiant operates MD-80's to PIE and SFB non-stop from ROA.
