    Dominus, excellent idea for action. Email sent to Governor Patterson:

    Governor Patterson --

    Although I am currently an Oregon resident, I grew up in upstate New York and my family still resides there. I just wanted to let you know that I am delighted with your choice of Kirsten Gillibrand to fill the NY Senate seat. In addition to her strong integrity and good constituent relations, I believe that pragmatic Democrats like her are the future of our party. Especially, I applaud her strong support of the 2nd Amendment.

    I am tired of the GOP beating up on us over this issue, as in the 1996 midterm elections. 2nd Amendment rights are for *all* Americans, and we Democrats should embrace this heritage and move on.

    My thoughts exactly! It's nice to see a pro 2A come from NY State.

    Gillibrand was on the Nat'l news today. She did say that she would support McCarthys new bill on "Back Ground" checks. I don't know what that means?
    I don't think it could be good knowing McCarthys past on gun control.:confused:

    I sent a message to the Governor. Too bad Blago in IL couldn't have done something like this, as far fetched as that may seem

    I think it's about requiring gun store owners to do NICS checks of all their employees. That's the last McCarthy legislation on background checks that I've heard of.

    Maybe I'm too optimistic, but I saw that as Gillibrand's way of saying "You can stick your AWB where the sun don't shine."
