The people of Maryland's 8th Congressional District have a choice to make, but it appears any one of these three would represent them well.
Ben Carson argues that without Nazi gun control, there would have been a chance that the Holocaust could have been prevented. I believe that the millions of dead American and Soviet soldiers who fought bravely against the Nazi war machine would see the absurdity of this discussion.
