Re: The state of the fight in NY

Speeeling don't count, participation does.

Yes it made National News but not in print in either the Toldeo Blade, the Detroit Free Press or the Monroe Evening News, we get them all. I don't think AP covered the story in their wire services but, AP is extremely pro-Obama, thus pro Coumo or whatever his name is....

I see he was off 'hiding' in the city. Hope he didn't get mugged...lol What a puss.

The whole fiasco is as raw as yesterdays carp IMO.

Our governor (a Republican) BTW is very non-commital about any state regulation of any firearm. Michigan derives a lot of revenue from hunting and permits alone, not counting the associated tourism. We already have tough gun laws here, It's hard to get a CCW, I know, I have one and it took 4 months.

Re: The state of the fight in NY

I just handed in my OPT-OUT form. You can OPT-OUT of your name being given to the newspapers and other public sources for the REST OF YOUR life by going to the web and getting the form. Get it in, in a hurry, the deadline is winding down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think it is the biggest violation of my private rights I've ever seen.

I don't want criminals knowing I have guns.

THINK ABOUT THAT. It's like them publishing you have gold coins. There was a time you couldn't legally hold gold in this country too.

What's next? REALLY...

I'm the exact opposite, I dare you to come to my home! If my pits don't get you I will! With the wife in LE it would just be perfect for a lawsuit.

Re: The state of the fight in NY

Found this link to a story about Albany in my local excuse for a newspaper.

Chants of 'we will not comply' as 7,000 call to repeal gun law | recordonline.com

This is a clip from an email from someone in one of the clubs I belong to. He was able to get inside the legislature building before the rally and directly lobby several elected officials.
"I definitely agree that there were over 10,000 there. It took us 1.5 hours to get through security. On the one street at the end of the rally, there were 15 buses along the curb as far as I could see and count and they were doubled all the way and tripled part of the way. There were 3 streets all about the same. That would be about 150 buses and there were others cruising around trying to get into position. If the Albany police say 185 buses, I'd agree and at 56 per bus that's over 10K. Then add in all the car pools. It HAS to be the beginning, not the end. I attached a picture. JD


GRASSROOTS ---- 2AR – WE DID IT ! THANK YOU !

On Feb 28th“We the People” – Grassroots made history: We stuck together and won morethan most people are aware of. Our 2AR (2nd Amendment Rights) were saved on arainy day in Albany.Even the media had to concede this movement is massive (a majority of theproductive folks) and encompasses citizens from all walks of life. Media estimatesof the crowd are from 5000 to 10,000 – we were much more in numbers. Just thebuses; there were 185 buses registered (as we were told by Albany police) – which means over 9,000 cameby bus. (BTW- our network bus count is 105)Our numbers may have even exceeded 20,000 – yup that’s possible. Those thatattended know that those in the park (which may have numbered 5000 to 10,000)were but a piece of the many 1,000s more that flooded the CapitolBuilding, jammed the LOB and theentire Capitol Plaza complex. Truth be know – there weremore people in the buildings than in the park – we know that is fact.






From another section of that email...

Like said above; we wonmore than most people are aware of.
Behind thescenes the status-quo “organizations” and “GOPpoliticians” did all they could to prevent a huge event from happening: “They”wanted a small rally that they could “manipulate” or what some would say “influence”.Yes – they had a plan. Let me share a true quote from the many status-quo correspondence,Let's keepour eyes on the goal here, which is to amend the SAFE Act. Let's not dothings which would be counterproductive to that goal.” – yes, theydid try, very hard, to intimidate our team and stop our plan – but we marchedon – Thank You Team !!!!! & Thank You to those who heardGrassroots instead of the status-quo!!!!!!

So – WE changed “their”plan with a massive pre-rally with united chants of NO Amendment – REPEAL REPEAL. YES – WE – “2AR Grassroots” changedpolitical history. We spoke loud and clear and “they” had to listen. After thePre-Rally the GOP marched their speaker soldiers onto the tent covered stage –guess what – no talk of amendments. Their message to the people was changed to REPEAL – NO compromise.

I also heard that the NY State Supreme Court (not the top court in NY) has given the State until the end of April to prove the Constitutionality of the SAFE act or they will issue and injunction.

More to follow...

Re: The state of the fight in NY

Thats good, but there are other battles with just as much gravity, if not more...

Now we have to convince the Federal Government not to trample the Constitution in their quest for Socialism, not that we want Socialism in the first place.

America is supposed to be 'the land of the free' not the land of the opressed.
