The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
Actually, technically, it's Alaska carry, as permits will be issued for them that wants them.
June strikes me as a bit optimistic; isn't the Legislature still in session now, and projected to adjourn 5/26 (making AZ permit-optional on 8/24)?
And all done without any interference from the Gun Grabber who left it all up to the States to decide.
I know...I know...Wayne (just got back from going shooting with Harry Reid) LaPierre says that "the first chance he gets, he will pounce on us." Perhaps Mr. LaPierre (and others here) are under the impression that are president is a three toed sloth 8-)
Perhaps Mr. LaPierre is under the impression that Our Glorious President is an honest man, and will do as he promised before the elections.
Of course, expecting honesty out of Barry is rather like expecting a rock to stand up and dance the jig.
My beleif is that Obama's political team correctly analyized the electoral results of '94 and decided that gun control is yet another "third rail" of national politics, and has wisely based no policy on calming the shakey nerves of hoplophopes.
However, they thought they had an economic disaster (as well as a "human-caused climate crisis") which could be used as a driver for policy and leglislative action, so gun control only needed some passing nods from candidate Obama, despite his horrific record as a member of the Illlinois legislature.
Now we are seeing a hopeful sign from the public that perhaps (finally!) massively irresponsible spending and taxing policies (owned so completely by the current absolute D. majority) are also being forged into another "third rail" that will spell utter doom for the current herd of scabrous villians in the US Congress. The public is pissed, and I suspect the sales of tar, feathers, and fence rails will soar come November.
At least, I hope so. It would apply selective evolutionary pressure on the political class, so that perhaps they will evolve vertebrae (or at least join the chordates by developing something resembling a brain at their pointy-ends).
Wild. I really thought UT would make the leap first.
On we roll.... now to repeal the ruininous HC crap. Ron Paul's HC 4665 ( I think # is correct) is a start. Woot! Keep grunting, Monkey Boy! Nov. is your DOOM!
Keep grunting, Monkey Boy! Nov. is your DOOM!
Actually, I'm not worried at all about November. While I think some seats will flip, it will be much less than expected because the Tea Party is going to split GOP votes. They'd have to flip 10 seats in the Senate and with Thompson and Pataki sitting out this round, that leaves only a few states the GOP hopes to take back. That's assuming they can hold on to statest like FL where Crist is really hosing things up for the right.
And the House? 40 seats to flip just to have 218-217?
Show me where you find the 40 in here.
40 seats in the house is easy, we have 2-3 that will flip here in AZ alone. The Senate will be a lot harder, but I think Boxer is finally going down.
Credit where credit is due though, we do have Obama to thank in part for our new law, since he's the one who got rid of our old Governor. (for which we do apologise to the rest of the nation)

On the other hand, perhaps Mr. LaPierre (and others here) don't fantasize and fetishize about President Hussein's body parts, as yourself, Chris Matthews and others seem to do incessantly.
Ah, but wasn't it Mr. Matthews who recently called Sarah Palin's star power "electric." No comments from the peanut gallery on that one, hmm?
I didn't notice that he'd said anything about a "thrill running up his leg" or that, for an hour, he'd forgotten that she was a woman . . . .
