Anti-gunners Holding Forum on Gun Shows
On Wednesday, July 14, at 2:00 PM, Congressman Robert “Bobby” Scott (D-VA), Congressman Mike Castle (R-DE), Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) and Congressman Mike Quigley (D-IL) will be hosting a forum on H.R. 2324, the "Gun Show Loophole Closing Act of 2009." The gun ban lobby, led by the Virginia Center for Public Safety and the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, is promoting this forum as open to the public. That means we need to have a good show of pro-gun folks in attendance to counter the antis that are certain to attend.
The usual suspects will be in attendance and scheduled to speak:
Mayor Larry Gilbert, Lewiston, Maine
Kenneth E. Barnes, Sr., MS, Founder/CEO ROOT (Reaching Out to Others Together), Inc.
Colonel Gerald Massengill, (Former Superintendent VA State Police, Chair of the Virginia Tech Review Panel, Sutherland, VA.
Michael J. Carroll, President, International Association of Chiefs of Police, Alexandria, VA
Daniel Webster, ScD, MPH, Professor and Co-Director, Center for Gun Policy and Research at John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Baltimore MD
Tom Mauser, father of Daniel Mauser who was killed at the Columbine School shooting, Littleton, CO
Gerry Nunziato, Youngstown, OH
Colin Goddard, survivor of the Virginia Tech shootings, Richmond, VA
VSSA has a large number of members in the northern Virginia area so if you can be in Washington on Wednesday, your attendance would be appreciated.
