Defense attorney Tim Parlatore joined us as a returning guest for a rousing discussion on the 2nd Amendment, and the role of the military in domestic law enforcement. Unfortunately due to some technical difficulties we lost the final moments of the show which contained an interesting discussion on the use of drone technology. We apologize to our listeners and to Mr. Parlatore for that.
