I bet this ad hurt some when you are trying desperately to impose a long and obnoxious waiting period.
Accompanying note “Cries Foul on Gun Control. House Majority Leader Rep. Ron Silver, (D)-N. Miami Beach, holds up a newspaper ad on the House floor Wednesday, claiming it was riddled with untruths regarding his sponsored gun legislation and its cooling off purchase period. However, Silver supported the floor amendment’s shorter cooling off period, saying was at least a start in the right direction.”
I know that we complain about the hardships we face battling gun control, but back then was even worse: No Internet to mobilize and congregate, no concerted effort between all parties interested in Gun Rights, a Mainstream media that hated the idea of Citizens armed and independent with no alternative methods for people to acquire alternative information.
In a sense, we are standing on the shoulders of Atlas-es who did what nobody back then thought possible. And Marion Hammer was there too, she was derided and thought useless: boy were they wrong! Sis one frigging tough cookie and we owe her so much and I am not just saying Florida.
