    2A meeting at Congressman Joe Hecks office

    There is going to be a 2A meeting with Joe Heck, 3rd district, this coming Thursday night at his office at 5 pm. I hope lots of OCers show up and voice opinions. This will be a great opportunity to see if he is indeed one of us.

    Of great interest to most of us, I'm told there will be free food.

    You should listen to the Illinois Moore case oral arguments before going.

    The Illinois case questions and comments by the judges are nothing short of retarded. Looks like they'll point the legislature into allowing carry for people who can show an immediate need to carry, like NJ.

    I cannot believe the twisted logic the judges are leaning towards and the lawyers in the case clearly have no freaking idea what a pistol/handgun has been in the past. "you couldn't have carried a pistol in 1770" said a judge. Well, YES THEY DID you brain dead liberal...they have guns of all sizes back then too. The lawyer had nothing to say because the lawyer clearly never held a gun in his hand in his life.

    I would not guess what they will decide. I thought the judges did a good job of holding both sides feet to the fire. They were equally hard on both sides. The pro 2A lawyer did a awful job, the anti was much better unfortunately for us.

    The anti-examination from the judges were about being worried about girls being raped or some specific threat they had made against them ... but this case won't end there anyway so hopefully the 2A lawyer will READ up on gun history. Maybe even handle one.

    So will OC be allowed there or will you be shot by snipers looking for the next Jared Loughner if you carry?

    Similar...they made smaller ones too...this is how I see the 7th Dist. court ruling:
    They say a complete ban is in violation of the 2A
    They'll say that allowing only people with restraining orders is OK


    And SCOTUS will tear them up. So many victims of crimes will be yelling "you illegally stripped my father of his right to defend himself and he was killed; the cops were nowhere around!"

    I just confirmed via Congressman Joe Hecks office that there will be a 2A gathering at the campaign office on Pecos from 04:30 to 8:00pm Tomorrow, Thursday, night. Congressman Heck will be there as will Bob Irwin, who is running for state assembly.

    My wife and I will be dropping by, OC of course, and I hope many will show up as well. This will be an interesting test to see just how 2A friendly they really are.

    I would suggest, and it is just my opinion, show up in nice casual dress. The better an appearance we make at events like this the better for our cause. Either way, if you can't, such as coming from your job, show up anyway. We need numbers. Come with questions and comments too.

    Is that Bob Irwin of Gun Store fame (infamy)? We already know his 2A creds with regard to OC.

    I will aim for 5pm as well. Hypothetical 10yr old in tow. I'll try to bring something with a collar. I think all of my "not legal in california " shirts are in the laundry.

    Was disapointed. Looks like Heck no Joe was there for about a half hour or so then ducked out. Missed him. Talked to Bob Irwin a bit and Don Turner.
    Staffers spent most of their time trying to get people to come in and make calls. That is not what I was there for.

    No open carry issues though. Saw several.

    2A meeting at Congressman Joe Hecks office

    Was there too, OCing stayed for about an hour, no Joe. Met Don Turner and listened to Bob Irwin for a bit. Was not what I was expecting, and didn't rush across town to play phone jockey for anyone. Very disappointed.

    Ok now, I didn't see any of yall there. Pm me pics, cause I must have been talking to you at some point. I was specifically on the lookout for other ocers, and I didn't see yall.

    I got there about 4:45, just as Heck was leaving. Said he'd be back, but when I left at 7pm, he hadn't returned.

    I was there with the wife. Both OC. Saw 3 others that I noticed. We were there for about 45 mins. No Joe so I said let's blow.
