    In writing that you intend to carry at the capital you cannot carry there. If you have please Carry concealed. This is not the time or place for an Open Carry display.

    P.S. - If you can make it I will be the guy with the black and gold NRA hat. Also sporting a grey beard. Please introduce yourself if you do come.

    I am confused, what is changing here. Are they adding no duty to retreat or stand your ground?

    Well I am back from the Castle Doctrine committee hearing and my mind is in a shambles. Where do I begin? First the hearing started about 40 minutes late. There are way too many people in expensive suites sitting in high-back leather chairs in our government if you ask me. No wonder we have to have special sessions, they can’t start a meeting on time. Ironically one of the bills that passed was, “Creating a gross misdemeanor for assaulting a utility employee or contractor”. I wanted to shout “Just tell them to run away like the rest of us have to”. The story on this was that utility workers are being attacked at night while on the job. Kind of like pizza delivery guys but there was no bill to protect them.

    Finally we moved to a smaller room because they ran out of time but they did move our bill to the front of the line. I got to the new room early so I got one of the few seats but I was surrounded by angry people with tee shirts that said something about “citypeace.org”. Tony and David Gross were first and gave a concise account of what the bill was about. Now the zoo was about to begin. I didn’t get everyone’s name and organization but there was some lawyer representing state prosecutors who said this would make it impossible for them to put bad people in jail. If that were true he is not much of a lawyer if you ask me. Then we had our old friend Scott Knight from the Chaska police department. That guy has more gold stars than General Dwight Eisenhower. He must think a lot of himself and is very impressed with how he looked in uniform. When he was through LYING to the crowed he pointed to some other officer who came up. He was a Lt. from Minneapolis and he told us about how they took 700 illegal guns off the street last year. I looked over at a guy from the NRA and mouthed, WHAT THE HELL HAS THAT GOT TO DO WITH ANYTHING? They were followed or preceded; I can’t remember which, by the head of the Minnesota Peace and Police Officer’s Association. I remember him from when we tried to pass the MPPA and all the lies he told then. Finally they had some angry woman that played the race card, actually said it was “for the children”, and ran over about 5 minutes when she said she would be done in under a minute. The DFL didn’t seem to care can you believe.

    Finally they decided to give Tony and David a little more time and the head guy joked, “after all he had a gun”. Some woman in front of me started hopping up and down in her seat asking everyone around her, “Does he have a gun? Why does he have a gun? Can he have a gun?”. I so wanted to tell her to shut up and sit down because I and most of the people around her have guns, but I kept my mouth shut. Finally some Dems. had questions for Tony and David. They rambled on for several minutes saying while they appreciated his efforts they would not vote for the bill. THEY DID NOT ASK ANY QUESTIONS THAT I RECALL. They just wanted to hear themselves talk I guess.

    As expected with the Dems. In charge, it failed and I am worn out for this mind numbing stupidity.
