    This is a classic Fabian Strategy move.

    If we do not stop it here, it will be parks next, then public places.

    Not paranoid, just vigilant.

    Well is this not crap or what? Shoot I am using thecomputer in my library right now to type this!! Due to the old phonelines in my house I cant get decent internet and satillite is just way to expensive... Why cant these people just get it? The library is the only place for some people to connect with the world and wonderful informal sites like this... and those that carry as I do really dont look to the 70year old grandmother working the desk as a deterent to someone who just woke up not giving a damn this day.... why do these law makers feel they have to fudge everything that people legally do...

    thats all i got to say bout that...

    Mamie is just offering left wing blandishments to the loyal supporters who drink her brand of Kool-Aid. She simply wants them to know she's still on their side. The bill itself is red meat to Virginia's conservatives, and will be dead meat in the General Assembly. I'm not saying we should be complacent, but don't lose sleep over this little stinkbomb. If it even gets out of committee, we should see the debate as another opportunity to educate the masses, now that she has gotten their attention.

    There is always the hope that we will be complacent or willing to compromise. They may ask just to only allow Concealed Carry next.

    Kool-aid? How did you know I was just studying about Jim Jones?
