Just got a phone call from a delightful young lady at Del. Schuh's office.

Wonderful conversation about how the Del. is squarely in our corner and how she, as a hunter and shooter herself, fully understands our position and are doing all they can for 2A in Maryland.

It also sounded like--though I didn't ask outright--she was very familiar with MDS and MSI, and that sounded to me like a win.

I believe the time to speak up in defense of the Constitution is when it is under attack. Please continue to speak out. Write letters to the press come to hearings and call radio programs.


Thanks again for sharing your words of wisdom.

Yours in public service,

From Delegate Turner:

"Thank you for contacting me concerning possible legislation to help control
the proliferation of gun violence.

As you may be aware, I have supported a ban on the sales of assault weapons
and large capacity magazines and for instant background checks on all gun
sales and for a ban on carrying concealed weapons.

There will be many bills in January to address the problems stated above.
The real challenge is how to collect the thousands of assault weapons
already in circulation and the need to add more state and federal funding to
mental health issues.

I appreciate hearing your comments and concerns surrounding these many
difficult issues that need to be addressed.

Best wishes,
Frank
Delegate Frank S. Turner"

and my reply:

"Sir;

I had hoped you would take the time to take a look at the information in the
article."

Note that Turner is for confiscation.

Regards
Jack

He would never meet with a bunch of armed right wingers.

I forgot to copy the letter and save it. But it was well composed and carefully worded. You certainly must be careful about asking the president to come shoot guns. especially one who believes that more guns=more death.

My suspicion is that al Hawai'i doesn't give a crap one way or the other, personally.

He'd be on whichever side would allow him to collapse the system.

If he thought that allowing widespread ownership and carry would create enough problems that he'd have to send his Civilian Defense Force to the rescue, we'd have universal CC already.

I got one reply back so far and I was pretty shocked. All of my reps are, of course, democrats, since I am in a very liberal area of Baltimore county. I basically said additional "gun control" measures on law abiding citizens were unlikely to fix this issue, but having a "good guy" who was armed in every school, be it an officer or armed and trained CCW permit teachers, would be the best way to address this risk. I also said that we need a better way as a society to address the mental health aspect of the problem.

Here is Sonny Minnick's reply:

"Lauren,
Thank you for your e-mail on school safety. I have signed on to a bill that will be introduced in the upcoming session sponsored by Delegate Cluster (former Baltimore
Police officer) that does just what you suggest, a SRO (safety resource Officer) in EVERY school in Maryland. Money for this bill will come from the new gaming bill we passed in the special session. Having said that, there is always the possibly we don't have the votes to get it passed, there are a lot of people looking to pass gun Control legislation, which along with you, I do not agree will help the problem of protecting our schools. Mental Health? A whole new issue not as easily addressed.
Thanks for your views on the issue.
Sonny Minnick"
