Mike, I think to really drive the point home, you should organize the OPPOSITION to come speak. NOTHING is going to make them pay attention more than having people rally around and listen to their opponents in the next race!

Here's a list of committee-members with their opponents, if any, in the upcoming 2014 election

At the very least, get Brad Wyatt and Susannah Lee.

Can we get any out of state speakers? How about any big names? I know Matt Light talks the talk about rights. Can we get him to REALLY commit, just one time, when we need him most? How about if he brings some other Patriots players?

Just thinking out loud here.

Pretty sure I'm in, talked to my club president, he'd like to go too ! At least all clubs should put out a blast e-mail. And how about some gun shops getting involved? We need banners and signs.

I'm getting awfully tired of taking time off, not spending it time with people I love, and instead spending it on people that would make my life easier if they'd die in a fire.

This is actually a pretty good idea. Just remember Naughton's (among others) gaming of the system with the assistance of DeLeo, and make sure that we don't squash someone's chances by having them speak if it's likely to be successfully used against them.

I am looking for a ride into Boston (and back) from Brookfield'ish area.....are there any clubs charting busses?
If you belong to a club, please contact your club's leadership and ask them to organize a bus. GOAL has contacted almost 100 clubs asking them to do this with very little response. We need to do better.

I was disappointed that we weren't spilling out into the street at the hearing last week. [thinking]

It didn't take long for the anti's to vacate the hearing leaving behind their No violence signs all over the floor. To me is seemed like the pro-2A crowd had a much bigger presence after a while.

True....most of the committee left around the same time too. Love how the antis always leave a mess when they leave. [hmmm]

They left and so did the press. Need more bodies, banners and men and women should make the effort. This will be my second day ( I only get a few vaca days, but this time it's for keeps, we need to show !)
