The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Lebonte bears arms
All That Remains’ front man is joining an echo of Second Amendment backers in declaring his right to bear arms. An article that Phil Labonte wrote for Alternative Press was submitted before the massacre in Colorado last week. He has since revised his comments, though he still stands behind his support for an armed public. He just better not bear arms here in Illinois, or else the strong arm of the law will smack him down. In the article he also says we live in a police state and slams the TSA, Patriot Act and the recent passage of the National Defense Authoriaztion Act. That’s my kinda guy!
Hiring Our Heroes donation
I don’t care who you are … $250,000 is a lot of money! That’s how much Kiss and Motley Crue donated to help keep military veterans employed.
