    GVRD official should resign for 'open carry'
    Published By Times Herald
    Posted:04/03/2010 01:01:28 AM PDT


    I would like to call for the resignation of the Executive Director of the Greater Vallejo Recreation District, who issued a permit for an "open-carry" gun event at Vallejo's Independence Park.

    I feel this action is irresponsible and in direct violation of GVRD's nonprofit mission: "Building community and enhancing quality of life through people, parks and programs." This event is divisive in the community rather than building community and has a negative impact on our youth and families who are already suffering from an excess of gun violence. I fail to see how essentially opening the doors to more than 100 people from out of town all expected to be carrying firearms does anything but work against your mission and the good of the city.

    In fact, you are taking away the use of the park from numerous citizens on a holiday weekend. I am guessing that most families will not bring their children anywhere near what is our premier public waterfront space on Saturday because -- whether gun enthusiasts like it or not -- a large armed group is not a comfortable setting for most families.

    Recent postings on gun enthusiast Web sites like calguns.net urge participants, "Just remember this is Vallejo. Bring extra Mags." What is GVRD thinking as it opens our park to this event?

    You have effectively detracted from our quality of life. Therefore, I respectfully request that responsible individuals resign.

    Translated through the bigoted lens of those opposing civil rights;



    Parksofficial should resign for inviting African Americanes

    A GREAT event today! Thanks for everyones hard work! We raised over 400.00 dollars at the event plus more to come this week. We should be presenting the Greater Vallejo Recreational District Youth Scholarship Fund with over $500.00! A great thanks to all the donors and everyone that made today possible.

    A new Vallejo group will be starting soon! 30+ Vallejo'ns are very excited to be starting it! Best of luck to all of you guys and we will be there in any way we can to help it start up!

    We had approx 150-175 people there thru out the day. No problems what so ever, and only 3 anti's.

    T.V. and paper media were there. good fun and great info learned and shared from everyone.

    Everyone did a great job, and I would like to thank Brad for all his hard work and time to make this such a huge succuss. While we all helpped, without you, this event would not have came about.

    Thank You.

    Dear Vallejo times herald;
    It would be very nice for you to remove Lorene Allio's editorials and comments. I believe Allio is a very confused individual who needs to be placed on a 72 hour hold while monitored by a phycologist.

    Allio's comments would cause further damage to the Vallejo community by creating fear, uncertainty and doubt about an American citzens' right to self defense.

    I saw one sign there, "Jesus didn't need a gun". Look what happened to him.
    A citizen may not be required to offer a ―good and substantial reason-- why he should be permitted to exercise his rights. The rights existence is all the reason he needs.

    Actually Luke 22recordsthe apostles of Jesus came armed (with Jesus' permission) to the location that Jesus surrendered himself. There was some blood shed by an over zealous apostle.

    Luke 22:35-38

    And He said to them, “When I sent you without money bag, knapsack, and sandals, did you lack anything?” So they said, “Nothing.” Then He said to them, “But now, he who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a knapsack; and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one. For I say to you that this which is written must still be accomplished in Me: ‘And He was numbered with the transgressors.’ For the things concerning Me have an end.” So they said, “Lord, look, here are two swords.” And He said to them, “It is enough.”

    Luke 22:49-50

    When those around Him saw what was going to happen, they said to Him, “Lord, shall we strike with the sword?” And one of them struck the servant of the high priest and cut off his right ear.
