So there’s a proposal to mandate the teaching of an NRA gun safety program in every first-grade classroom.

Here’s the story:

On yesterday’s show we spent a lot of time talking about Immigration, as the President and Congress attempt to get on the same page on a reform bill. Learn more about this controversial issue with the Top Surprising Facts About Illegal Immigration.

Illegal immigrants add billions of dollars to the U.S. economy by doing something called "selling marijuana."

Activists are currently trying to change the euphemism "undocumented worker" to "debonair ninja master of international descent."

People come here in search of a better life. HA! Joke's on them.

Canadian illegals will leave the country if you simply ask them politely.

An illegal immigrant can hold any job in America . . . as long as he has a fake birth certificate from Hawaii.

 

I wonder if any illegals will try to get in to Glenn Beck's 'Independence, USA?' Here’s Jon Stewart ripping Glenn a new one.

We’ve got out first Super Bowl ad controversy, courtesy of Volkswagen. They previewed their ad online this week, and a lot of people think it's RACIST.

The ad is called "Get Happy", and here it is in a nutshell: All these office workers are miserable except "Dave", a very white guy from Minnesota who's so cheery that he speaks in a Jamaican accent. Why? Because he drives a VW Beetle.

At the end of the clip, Dave takes his boss and another coworker for a ride in the Bug, and then THEY have Jamaican accents, too.

Volkswagen thinks the ad is okay, because they ran it for 100 JAMAICANS, and they all thought it was cool. Also, they consulted a speech coach to make sure the accent was accurate.

Do YOU think the ad is racist? Leave your comments below.

    Living in rural Missouri, we took a state-funded gun safety course in something like 5th grade. It should be mandatory, and first grade isn't a bad idea.

    Any child who lives in a home where firearms are kept, plays with others outside, or plays with friends at their homes should know the basics of firearm safety as taught by the NRA's Freddy the Eagle. A responsible parent should never, ever assume that their child will never be exposed to a firearm.
