    Update: Pistol Free Zone status

    I have just gotten out of Richard LeBlanc coffee hours and had a chance to ask him about pistol free zones. The long and the short of it is the committee chairman, John Walsh, doesn't feel it has the support he wants it to have. I have been told that if people call their representatives and have their representatives go to John Walsh the committee chairman. The bill will get out of the committee and go to the floor for a vote.

    This may be moot by the end of the week.
    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    Thursday's bill won't be perfect -- but it will represent a major improvement over the status quo for very little give.

    Thursday I bet. If I were to speculate, I'd say its schools. The ground we need to regain first.

    Lets just wait and see rather than speculating and getting all worked up over what may be.

    But we are getting so good at that lately!

    Sure -- it's SB-59 -- or some substituted form of it. What's in the substitute...I could tell you but then I'd have to kill you.

    Seriously -- I don't like the gag either.

    Note: The substitute doesn't have to be anything like the original. It doesn't even have to touch the same laws the original addressed
