    They look like they are reporting on the re-write of the bill tat puts BFPE in line with the ethics/FOIA and such - that's not a bad thing.

    The original write of the bill was to merge BFPE with the Department of Public Safety. That's the bad one.

    If it went this route, I wouldn't have any problems. Merging the BFPE with the very group they overturn a large majority of denials or revocations - that I have a problem with.

    I've busted my hump trying to get correction or modification of this bill (as many have heard and know from my testimony a couple times on this bill with various committees). The only one that has stood up and clearly mentioned 2A rights on this issue is Rob Sampson.

    The guy isn't in my district, but I'll help volunteer for the guy next cycle, he really is working with us.

    I have never seen a person drink tea from a coke bottle while standing on their head, that doesn't mean it is illegal.

    Is SB1017 effectively dead now since the Legislature has adjourned for this session or can it still be voted upon if they re-convene under an emergency session later this year? My guess would be that the budget would be their reason for the emergency session, but one never knows if they would address anything else.

    In other words, do we still need to press our Senators to oppose this or is it "done?"

    My understanding is it's done. If you look at the bill itself on the CGA website, there is A TON of activity on it, but no final analysis.

    I think it was merged with something else.

    Either way, as long as it wasn't merged with DPS, I think it's fine.

    For the most part, we had a decent session (though very active) this time around.

    We need to gear up for a HUGE fight on some issues next January. I don't think the congressional critters in Hartford are done with a few of these bills.
