Also, I'd need a bumper sticker "MY MONEY AND MY DAUGHTERS GO TO WWW. U in Virginia "

Or just send them to Utah where it is legal. Then get get a bumper sticker "MY MONEY AND MY DAUGHTERS GO TO UTAH WHERE THEY CAN LEGALLY PROTECT THEMSELVES"

Called Duncan and Lucio.

The receptionist / secretary at both offices politely listened but gave no indications.

Also sent an e-mail to Duncan.

I don't have a copy to post, but I detailed 2 events that I was either a witness to or personally knew of that having a firearm would have been a better option for the situation.

As a professor, I also spoke of the lack of 'fear' I have regarding students on our campus carrying.

Hope it helps us get over the 'hump'.

Wonderful to have a academic voice that offers a pro-gun viewpoint - sadly a rare commodity, thank you for pitching in.

Lucio's a "No".

Wentworth has refused to put Lucio's amendment into the bill, so the Senator will not be voting for it.

I guess HS students' lives aren't as valuable as college students.

Hm... so the bill stops here? Or is there anyone else who'll step up to be the 21st vote?

That's why I'm contacting "other" Senators who weren't previously part of the "21" in the beginning too.. hope hope ...

Honestly, if they'd de-criminalize .... then let anyone "opt out and try to see my "policy breaking invisible gun"
I personally would be thrilled.

It would be such a huge step in the right direction.


And, hope it's never needed, but "could" some day, provide a response to the question THEY try to use against us ... "Show me one CHL who ever stopped a mass shooting" (in a gun-free zone)

I'm calling Sen. Wentworth's office to see if he has the votes to get it to the floor. The staffer is supposed to get back to me, but I'll call before I go to town.

Can you list those remaining names? I can make another round of calls; not sure if it's hopeless to get them to reconsider, but I'm willing to make the effort.

Actually I called and E-mailed them ALL (copy paste into my magic Jack is fast) and I E-mailed them all and use the two free faxes online daily to different ones each day.

The ones to NOT need to waste limited free faxes on are the authors, unless they are "turn-coats"

31 members of the Senate
- 14 Authors (14 of the 20 votes to suspend rules out of the 21 needed)
----------------------
17 left (6 of whom are part of the 20)
So out of the 17-6 = 11 left ...

only 1 vote needed

We should chip in on range fees for those 11 ... and dinner afterwards ...
:lol:

I've seen accounts of 2 anti-gun people turning around at least some after enjoying an outing to a range.
Jus sayin'
