First Birthday

The Minnesota Personal Protection Act turns one year old today.

Lest we forget, let's step back in time and reminisce about what the DFL predicted would happen.

Shootings over fender-benders: Zero.

Gunfights in bars between legal permit holders: Zero.

Gallons Traces of blood in gutters put there by legal permit holders: Zero.

Shootings by legal permit holders: Zero.

Percent of lying piece of filth "Senator" Wes Skoglund's rhetoric that came true: Zero.

Degradation in Minnesota's "quality of life" cause by ending victim disarmament: Zero.

DFL Party credibility on this issue: Zero.

Amount of credence you should allow the DFL on this or any issue: Zero.

Amount of accountability exacted upon the DFL in the media after eight solid years of lies on this issue: Zero.

There's a birthday party today at the Capitol. I'm going to try to be there. If you support the MPPA, it's important you try to be there as well; you can bet the jobless, always-ready-to-picket-for-someone instaprotesters from Code Citizens for a Pink Minnesota will be there, parading in front of the cameras that will duly find exactly the right angle to make them look anything but insignificant (and doddering). We need to make the differences too obvious to ignore.

I"ll hope to see you there.

The US military has had a lot more success finding WMD's in Iraq than the Minnesota Left has had finding VCC's (Victims of Concealed Carry). But you sure wouldn't know that from watching the news.

If I remember correctly, didn't some guy (permit holder) shoot his brother's car because he was driving on his lawn and wrecking his new landscaping? Seem to remember it being in the Strib, Metro section 1st page. Last summer sometime.

I am suprised they aren't talking about that. Innocent cars, killed for being on a lawn. (Unless the car was really a SUV, and the polluting bastard deserved it)

It was a wonderful gathering and I think we Gun Owners showed just how strong a force in Minnesota we our. The fight now is to keep our shooting ranges open, NIMBY is the cry even though the ranges have in operation far longer than the McMansion folks.

Congrats to all of you. It sounds like there was a great turnout, and I think the idea of a birthday party was great.
