    I've heard of a recent spate of guns attacking people. Nothing frightens Mr. Y more than the prospect of machines rising up and taking over. We have to put a stop to this NOW!



    The Million Mom March of Northern Virginia
    What: An informational meeting about U.S. and Virginia gun laws
    Who: All concerned Virginia residents are invited
    Are you confused by state and federal gun laws? How does our government keep
    guns out of the wrong hands? Can and should gun laws be strengthened? What
    can we do to prevent school shootings and other gun violence?
    Our guest speaker will be Bob Ricker, former chief lobbyist for the National
    Rifle Association who now advocates for sensible gun laws and is a
    recognized expert on federal and state regulations.
    Monday, May 21, at 7 p.m.

    Kings Park Library
    9000 Burke Lake Rd.
    Burke, VA 22015-1683

    Monday, June 4, at 7 p.m.
    Centreville Regional Library
    14200 St. Germain Dr.
    Centreville, VA 20121-2299


    For more information, please contact us at: mmmnova@yahoo.com


    Any good restaurants in the area?

    That sounds like a great idea... but only if I'm not the only OCDO member present. It would be a great informational session and way to show people that a man with a gun isn't a murderer with a gun... Dunno if a lot of people would have the guts to pull it off though heh.

    I know that the Brady Bunch and the Mom's o million don't like to confuse the issue's with fact's, but,, Bob Ricker was never the chief loddyist for the NRA.

    In the 1980's he was an asst contract attorney in the office of General Councel.He worked there for a short time and went on to do some lobbying others in the gun industy.

    It surprises me that they would twist the facts like that to to immplie somthing that is other than what it really is :what:

    Not advocating such behavior, but I wonder what it would do to his credibility in the context of this event if someone were to ask the speaker about this inconcistency.

    I'm absolutely serious in that if a bunch of people go, that I'd go, we just need to reach a critical mass for it to take off on its own. This sounds like a wonderful night of spirited (to put it mildly) debate and good eats.

    I'm in. It wouldn't be the first time I've open-carried at a political Q&A in a library. Can't speak for the rest of the family, but I'm there.

    I am definitely in! This is not going to fly unanswered. Everybody got your "Guns Save Lives Buttons?"


    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    If I recall, one of the Ffx Co Supervisors has her office in the building or nearby the Kings Park Library. I'll bet she'll be there. Sharon Bulova, I think.

    This looks like a planned campaign folks. We need to be at both.

    Mr. Y would like to point out that this tip off is courtesy of the OCDO famous

    S U P E R Moderator...

    As stated before, with these machines rising up to enslave humanity, we have to nip this in the bud. I've been wondering all day -

    If it's possible to limp wrist and malfunction a semi auto pistol then how the heck do they manage to fireoff all those rounds all by themselves without malfucntioning?

    So what about near the burke library, any good eats?

    I plan on attending the session in Burke, I will be videotaping the entiremeeting and posting it online. Sorry, I'm not committed enough to join y'all in Centreville.

    If they allow questions and/or comments I would like to say something, so if someone else could handle the camera during that time I'd appreciate it.

    I'm also game for eats after the Library session.

    I will double check but I could make the Centreville one, it's right around the corner of my house. Can bring my GL2 and videotape the event as well if that's desired.

    Drat, I just carefully read the OP, and realized there are two! I'm thinking it's worth making the one in Burke, and then determining whether to go to Centerville. I'm always up for evening events that involve carrying guns and not doing housework
