* WXEF Radio

The Thelma Keller Convention Center ballrooms were jampacked Thursday night to hear retired Marine and FOX News contributor Oliver North.

North, the new president of the National Rifle Association, was in town in part on behalf of the local Republican state representative candidates, but also to promote traditional values in the face of a changing world. […]

About a half-dozen protesters were on hand ahead of Thursday’s event. Local police present in case of any problems said there was a “civil discourse” between protesters and attendees…the attendees saying they appreciated the protesters’ differing point of view, the protesters shaking hands with the attendees.

* The official caption under the accompanying photograph is “Oliver North w/officials From Effingham, Iroquois, Christian And Mercer Counties Who Have Passed Firearms Sanctuary Legislation. 33 Counties Have Now Passed Such Legislation”

    Not sure cozying up to Oliver North and the NRA is a smart move right now. Seems like they have some major ’splainin’ to do about a certain redhead.
