This is a brief recap. It's late and I can't spend too much time writing this out, but I'm happy to answer questions.
Calgunners who I recognized were:
Obvously, osokne and redhead were there. I'm sorry if I didn't recognize y'all. Faces and names aren't my strong point. Please come up and introduce yourself next time. I'm a bit shy and usually only talk to the people I know.
Judging by the attendance by the Brady folks, they pulled out all the stops on this one. In attendance from the Brady side was:
- Karen Arntzen, former president of the CoCo Brady Campaign;
- Sandra Olufson current CoCo BC Pres.;
- Dianne Bardy, Brady Campaign;
- Jim Olafsun, losing candidate for City Council - endorsed by the Brady Campaign;
- Laura Cutilleta, attorney from the Lawyers Committee to Prevent Gun Violence - formerly LCAV;
- Amanda Roth, LCPGV (she's new)
The meeting opened up with a brief introduction by the mayor - then he called up the Chief of Police - who stated that there haven't been any complaints about the home FFL or any calls for service. (that kinda deflated the Brady folks)
I took a rough count of the speakers and their positions.
7 advocated changes to Pleasant Hill's regulations regarding home based FFLs
15 wondered why folks were advocating that the City fix something that wasn't broken.
Honestly - we kicked ***.
This isn't going anywhere.
Not one inch, folks. Fight them at every step.
