We also joked, "Who needs those little stop signs ADT and other security companies paste on the corner of home windows? Just send us a dozen NRA logos and they will do the job even better." Of course, we are still joking about that, to an extent. Dwayne is proud that he is finally a card carrying member... and that's not all he is proud to carry.
