It Is Your Constitutional Right to Buy Beer and Wine Locally [OPINION/POLL]

I am two things if nothing else: 1. I am legally old enough to drink. 2. I am tired of driving to Coffee City for beer. It's 2012. Prohibition was repealed in 1933.

I was even in the Army and for me this is a hard and loaded question to answer.  Do we want to see our brave service-women shot, hit with shrapnel, paralyzed or killed? No. But it's safe to say we also don't want to see our brave service-men shot, hit with shrapnel, paralyzed or killed.
