2A MD blames who?

This email from 2A MD was in my mailbox this morning.

Of particular interest to me was this portion from John H. Jocelyn of 2A MD.on the attempt by Sen Madeleno'to abolish the HPRB

Why is he blaming "activists"? Why not identify them if casting blame?

How does he know what the goal was?

Is this not a public meeting?

This stinks IMO. Now we're eating our own?

Put the blame where it belongs.

Just saw this as well.

I wonder if John realizes that he sounds EXACTLY like Jim Purtilo.

This is what Purtilo had to say about MDS and MSI 10 years ago:

Quote:
Splinter groups – they always get louder as they get smaller – seek confrontation instead of results. They stalk efforts of mainstream gun groups that otherwise work with one another with respect and a sense of shared mission. (In 2005 we saw how some yahoos would even cheer the killing of a pro-gun bill rather than risk it advancing without them in charge. Bad enough we fight gun grabbers, but the task is more difficult for having to ensure that advocacy plans do not needlessly expose us to attack from behind.)

You know, if sitting quietly in an HPRB meeting observing the process of government is "intimidation", I plead guilty.

IMO, "activist" attendees have done more to change the direction of HPRB decisions than any other group, bar none.

Madeleno is upset that the "activist" citizens are now having a say and changing the way the old guard methods of permit issuance can be changed.

Is there some professional jealousy involved here?

Still some sour grapes out there.?

Stay classy folks. sheesh

I'll say it. FVCK JOHN JOCELYN!


This is EXACTLY what is wrong with the old guard 2A supposed leaders in this state. Instead of calling out Madaleno for being the gun grabbing douche canoe that he is he would rather blame those of us who are trying to advance the cause of freedom?

Go away, John, you're yesterday's news. And take that goofy NRA rep who posts pics of her kids at the MOMS Demanding Action table at the local fair on social media with you.

He's reacting to Madaleno's "Thoughts and prayers aren't enough." email (attached) that says that the HPRB has been "stocked with 2nd Amendment radicals".

John is old school when it comes to dealing with the MD GA, but as a defensive position that hasn't gotten us much headway. He probably sees activism as 'poking the bear' and he's not comfortable with that, preferring to work behind the scenes. What he doesn't realize is that you can do both and be even more effective. Good Cop/Bad Cop, or Playing your position ... name your analogy, it comes down to communication and knowing that we both have the same goals in mind.

If John thinks that 2A radicals are his enemy, he needs to read Sun Tzu, The Art of War.

There's a lot of AGC members here. Just saying that given the news in the rest of the newsletter about the restructuring of the legislative part of AGC, perhaps it would be prudent to be very active in that process.
