I scanned the list of people who gave (or signed up to give) testimony on the 14th of March...
Out of about 200 people who signed up, 21 were pro & most others were against. With a few there is no annotation (so maybe they OKed 299 and said no to the rest is my thinking)
So about a 10:1 turnout against ... heck, a 60-40 split is convincing.
And with my FOIA requests to all the committee members, now the members don't want to disclose the emails sent to them either pro or con. I'll get the emails, when is a question. Maybe useful next session. Their refusal is puzzling though. I assume that the emails that they got were mostly against but then they'll declare "We appreciate those that have come down and spoken to us but the number of emails clearly show a favoring of the legislation so I'm gonna have to vote in favor of the gun restrictions"...when its not true.
