Hoosier Gun Owners Shivved In The Liver By House Democrats?

Caleb has the scoop.

See what happens when you listen to a Demoncrap?
If they truly believed in what gun owners believe in, they wouldn't be part of that party.

Just emailed Speaker Bauer. He figures his seat is safe in South Bend, and it probably is. Sure does motivate me to unseat a bunch of his cronies, though.

Ex-Speaker, plain old State Rep. Bauer.

I like it. Has a nice ring to it.

Let's put together a list of vulnerable Democrats, to whose opponents we can donate this coming election season.

I received a reply from my State Rep. (John Barnes - D, co-author of another pro-gun bill) who was not on the $#!t list, and has been a supporter... here is his reply...

"Thanks for writing back. In all honesty, I’m not sure why he (Rep. Bischoff) dissented. I do know that dissenting from the amendments made by the other chamber is pretty standard—I would say at least half (and probably more) of the bills that are amended in one chamber are sent to a conference committee and then eventually pass. I don’t take Rep. Bischoff’s decision to dissent as a sign that he has any major problems with the changes—conference committees often make tiny changes.



It’s also still possible for Rep. Bischoff to simply concur with the changes if he doesn’t think the two chambers can come to an agreement on a compromise. I was actually a co-author of what I considered a slightly stronger gun bill (HB 1219) that I thought would be a home for 1065 if it didn’t pass in the first place. I will use what I learned during that process to assist Rep. Bischoff in any way that I can."

So... I guess we just need to stay tuned.

I just heard back from Speaker Bauer's executive assistant.

His office is putting on the innocent "who, me?" act. They're just so very puzzled - puzzled, and hurt - by all the "nasty" emails they're getting.

Maybe I'm over-suspicious, but I'm reading this as "Gosh, Junior. I don't know what happened to your baby duck. I put her in the cage with that bobcat and haven't seen her since."

Wait a minute. Is it even theoretically possible to be "overly suspicious" of politicians?

Alath,
One can NEVER be too suspicious of politicians. It's in their nature, the lying and deceit. It's how they got to where they are.

Always count your fingers after shaking hands with a politician.
