I think we need to give her a break, she had just gotten word gold coral was having a 1.00 buffet sobshe was pressured to finish quickly.cripes, it'd be like a slip n' slide, you'd go whooshing off into the corner
the people a few rows back are probably wondering if it's time to deploy lifeboats
Wow. Those Grandmas look like they are out on the town ready to play a nice game of bingo. Is this their retirement hobby?
While I hate the guy, hes definitelt no dummy. He has more money than god so he goes after the next best thing: power.I loved the old lady sheep sitting next to a guy who was explaining the grassroots history of the MDA movement and how Bloomberg got behind it because it was such a big deal. Her response was "Well Bloomberg's a lot smarter than I am" (implying they must be doing the right thing) almost made me throw up a little in my mouth. Damn sheep.
Really glad I wasn't picking my nose.
That's something I could get behind.Second, I believe there may be a chance to push shall issue with the following caveat - the COP has the ability to present evidence at a hearing or before a court to show that while the applicant is not a prohibited person, he/she is unsuitable. Even if the COP would be allowed to delay by 30-60 day the issuance of a permit, I think that is something we could all get behind because it would shift the burden from us to the state in proving suitability or lack thereof.
I had discussing shall issue with COP ability to call for a suitablility review whenever I could with reps after hearing - Was happy when Jim brought it up and Naughton does seem to be interested in the idea. The problem is that this would be the carrot on the other end of a very nasty stick for a "comprimise" bill.That's something I could get behind.
Thanks for being there, upset I couldn't.
Might be a call back system - you touch tone your fax number and the system calls you back to receive - stops annoying spam, fax-bombs, and threatsI tried to fax my letters the reps but when the machine calls in there's a voice message on the other end, something about leaving your fax number. This aborts the call and you cannot send the fax. Did anyone else have the same problem?
The second time I asked the blonde bailiff she said Naughton had not "made his decision" yet. She agreed it was preferrential treatment though.That was before we had them take the sign down. The court officer did have them remove it.
Blitz's beef, beer and busty brunettes.
Agreed. Remember history, there was a great deal of blow back in NY and CT as the bills were passed with little to no debate. The antis are not fools, they know how to play this game (in some ways better than us) and they do learn from mistakes. While it is great we got our side out, I would not be surprised if this was rammed through now as they can say "we had hearings, debates and review. We gave everyone a chance, we were not like NY and CT." Vigilance is the word for the day, week, month, year, decade. This could all be the trappings of a show trial.As I said in a previous post:
WATCH OUT FOR THESE BASTARDS that they don't try to ram it through - intact - on Thursday afternoon, July 3rd, when the entire state is in "get home for the pre-party" or "get on the highway early to beat the beach crowd!!" mode....
Keep the pressure on them, keep calling and tell EVERYONE YOU KNOW to do so also. This way if they try to pull a fast one they'll know they are being watched on this!!
And remind everyone you know of how, should these regulations and restrictions pass, THEY might be the next "poor unlucky soul" in Arlington or anywhere else, defenseless, violently raped by the released Level 3 sex offender who broke into her quiet home....
Maybe she didn't want (or think she needed) a gun.
But if you DO, these State House bast*rds will be allowed to restrict you or your wife even FURTHER from lawfully defending themselves.
KEEP THE PRESSURE ON THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
great point on DeLeoAfter so much publicity I can't see this dying on the vine. At best it will be watered down a little, but DeLeo's lack of presence today shows how little he is concerned about passing meaningful legislation or even entertaining dialog on this. I think Naughton would do the right thing if he could, but he's not driving this crazy train anymore.
"Were going to snuff you out" said the anti with a devilish grin...This guy blew them away. Honestly, the way he opened I thought he was going to be anti. He should have been on earlier in the day with the "expert" testimony. He had far more numbers and facts than anybody, and obviously only a moonbat could disagree with his thorough analysis.
One of the antis pulled him out into the lobby after he was done, I'd love to know what was said out there.
I would guess this is not the case. He has to push something through in order to appease the liberal base in this state. My hope is that he will let Naughton correct some of the more egregious flaws in the bill and let the amended version pass since it will still be "doing something".I am thinking maybe, he doesn't care and it will fail? He will say "hey I tried" I know this is wishful thinking but I am hoping
pretty sure he would rather have it pass and it would be his legacyI am thinking maybe, he doesn't care and it will fail? He will say "hey I tried" I know this is wishful thinking but I am hoping
