    Cool Hello from Rhode Island

    Hello from RI. Thanks for letting me in. RI is currently going through what can only be described as the most egregious assault on the second amendment ever! With bill 5573. We need to band together and let these elected officials know that the rights of All Americans, the second amendment, will not be tampered with! If we lose this battle now, we will lose our right to keep and bear arms and our freedom won’t be far behind.

    sorry for the doom and gloom but it is what it is here in the crooked'ist little state in the union. We need help!!

    Welcome from Wisconsin, Dave!

    Let's hope you can hit those people hard at the voting polls. We finally got a sensible CC law in WI but it took until November '11 to get it. Get the right people in office & it makes it much easier.

    Wouldn't be interesting if the main stream media was fighting against restrictions of the First Amendment? Those seem to be the same people that are so against the Second Amendment.

    I lived just over the boarder in Massachusetts for several years in the mid to late 90's. It was very liberal then and I can't imagine that it has changed much since I left for warmer and more conservative pastures. You have your work cut out for you in trying to stop the elected officials in your state. The majority of people I met in that area simply didn't care, or they couldn't see how government intrusion is slowly eroding their rights.

    Welcome from GA!

    Welcome from Virginia.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    Welcome from RI (East Providence)

    Glad to have you with us. It's getting ugly all over - RI does not have a lock on negative, useless legislation.
    A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
