    2 surprises; New Hampshire (only swinging YKW in the Northeast) and Wisconsin ( which has no CCW). Joe

    Do we have a political science student to add up how many electoral college votes, or House of Representative votes are controlled by those 23 states?

    No surprises here folks

    Lisa Madigan (D-Gun Grabber) AG of Illinois is nowhere to be seen either.

    She and her Daddy Mike, the speaker of the Illinois House, are both big time gun control freaks and best buddies with Richie Daley. They don't want those peons getting uppity ideas about their real status in life.

    Besides she has to get ready to run for Governor next year and pad her $8 million campaign fund, contributed to by a lot of people that got contracts from Daddy. What a remarkable coincidence, huh?

    That's why Daddy decided to run Blago out of town and put Quinn, the human sock puppet, in office as a place holder. That way Quinn raises the income tax by 50% to cover an $8 Billion budget deficit and Lisa steps in as the savior of the state's budget, after the tax increase is passed.

    They have been trying to cram an AWB through the legislature for four years now. The stopping point has been the downstate Dems.

    If you want to know what the US is going to look like in another year or two, look at Illinois. All Dems in all the offices being run by crooked politicians from Chicago.

    The difference that it will make is that it will remind the administration that pushing for gun control now may well risk the Democrat majorities Obama enjoys now.

    Indiana is missing too. There may be upwards of 30 or more states that should be on this list...maybe version 2.0 of the letter?

    Big Block O' States

    Reordering the states by geography . . .

    There is a large contiguous block of states represented:
    Idaho - The Honorable Lawrence G. Wasden
    Montana - The Honorable Steve Bullock
    Wyoming - The Honorable Bruce A. Salzburg
    North Dakota - The Honorable Wayne Stenehjem
    South Dakota - The Honorable Lawrence Long
    Nevada - The Honorable Catherine Cortez Masto
    Utah - The Honorable Mark L. Shurtleff
    Colorado - The Honorable John W. Suthers
    Nebraska - The Honorable Jon Bruning
    Kansas - The Honorable Steve Six
    Missouri - The Honorable Chris Koster
    Oklahoma - The Honorable W.A. Edmonson
    Arkansas – The Honorable Dustin McDaniel
    Texas - The Honorable Greg Abbott
    Louisiana - The Honorable James D. Caldwell​
    Notably absent are Arizona and New Mexico.

    And a smaller block of contiguous states:
    Alabama - The Honorable Troy King
    Georgia - The Honorable Thurbert E. Baker
    South Carolina - The Honorable Henry McMaster
    Florida - The Honorable Bill McCollum​
    Notably absent are Tennessee and Mississippi.

    If we had those two, we'd have a much larger continuous block.

    And a few orphans:
    Wisconsin – The Honorable J.B. Van Hollen
    Michigan - The Honorable Mike Cox
    Kentucky - The Honorable Jack Conway
    New Hampshire - The Honorable Kelly A. Ayotte​
    Sorry, guys.


    Interesting data for anyone contemplating moving . . .

    23 able to take a stand is fantastic! My state is not on there, and we will be lucky if 23 don't sign something SUPPORTING the ban. However, I'll bet there are a lot of non-committal fence straddlers that won't sign either list. That is good, especially when almost half could and did take a positive stand. Hurray for the "free" states of the union.......

    I am a little surprised Alaska isn't on that list, as Governor Palin just received a very neat AR from the NRA.

    Looks like us Washingtonians need to start chewing on AG McKenna about this...

    Although he's a 2A squish. "CCW is OK, but so is our NFA ban."

    Why do they keep writing to Holder? He doesn't make the laws.

    Perhaps its because she is Alaska's governor, and the letter was from state Attorney Generals. As they are elected independently, governors and attorney generals don't always see eye-to-eye.

    I posted a dupe link - sorry! :eek:

    I think this is great. It just adds more powerful authorities to our side.

    Remember back to the Clanton years and the overall momentum the anti-gun movement had gained in the last forty years - to think that 23 AG's would write a letter like this was unthinkable.

    But, in 2009, 23 AG's did write this letter.

    I'm shocked and happy as can be. We are winning and we are winning BIG IMHO. :D

    Why did they write to Holder? Likely because he's their counterpart in the admin, and they wanted to get a letter written.

    After all, it's a little hard for the admin/CongressCritters to state that LE is clamoring for a new ban when dang near half the state AGs just told you that it doesn't help.

    I agree. I just hope it keeps up long enough for us to get rid of that stinking pile of unconstitutional crap that started it all, the NFA.
    The main problem we have in achieving that isn't the anti-gun people, it's the FUDD gun owners who think a hunting rifle is plenty and nobody "needs" a machine gun...:banghead:

    I guess it is time for us that live in NC to remind him if he wants to go further in Politics he will need support from the people that live here and do not want a ban ;)

    It surprises my that Jack Conway of Kentucky would be on that list. He is a young and upcoming socialist. I am glade to see my state represented, we do after all host the largest machine gun shoot in the country........:D

    Glad to see Mike Cox is on the list. As soon as we send Jenny Granholm back to Ontario, hopefully Michigan see's the light and puts Mr. Cox into the Governor's mansion in Lansing.

    WA State AG seems like he's pretty good on firearms issues... He actually wrote back to me regarding Mayor Mc [email protected] in Seattle wanting to ban firearms...

    HoosierQ!!! We both know the "Keep Indiana Blue" counsel are fighting tooth and nail to keep things like this from happening, part of the reason they are trying to run Mitch Daniels out of office in the next election
