www.youtube.com For the Record- I would never suggest anyone ever carry guns illegally in any vehicle. All guns should be secured properly for the safety of others when not in use. This video is purely a sarcastic humorist expression and view of how absurd it is that we are intertwining guns into a discussion about an energy policy and the future of the auto industry. This political dog whistle is being used to create animosity and fear for political gain. Republicans and Democrats have far more in common then they do apart. Lastly, I'm sick and tired of the Chevy Volt being used as some whipping post for the far right. This car was designed and started by GM when GWB was president. EV's are about changing the world and becoming more self-reliant, not some political talking point.
