Victory

Robert LeClair: We won through widespread support of 2nd amendment rights.

The sudden knee-jerk need to ban a perceived threat by the uninformed, ignorant few who have no understanding of what they want banned will have wide spread repercussions against the constitutional rights of our children and their children. If you stand against the right to own firearms, please be well informed about what you stand against. A Saratoga soccer mom with half-baked concepts of firearms and gun control has started a petition to try and ban the upcoming gun show in the city of Saratoga Springs.She believes that stopping this show will prevent firearms from existing in the city of Saratoga Springs. Gun show or not, firearms are available at no less than 15 stores within 25 minutes of the city. Please stand with me to support our gun rights and gun shows.

To:
The Board of Directors of the Saratoga Springs City Center
Do not cancel the gun show scheduled for January 11-13

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      The petition has taken on a life of its own and is now rapidly growing, thank you for the support and please continue to spread the word. I have spoken by e-mail to Susan Steer (the woman who started the petition against the gun show) and invited her to join me at the gun show for perhaps some discussion on views and possible misconceptions boths sides may have regarding the gun control issue. She has politely declined, having a previous engagement but has brought a concern to my attention. I understand that this is a touchy subject and I myself did use what some feel to be overly harsh terms when referring to Susan in the petition, but please refrain from threatening or harrassing partys involved. I must mention that the same document that provides us with the right to own fireams also allows for the free speech and the ability to voice ones opinion without fear of reprisal even if the opinions differ from ours.Thanks again.

      Thank you to all who have signed this petition and please spread the word. Apparently we have ruffled some feathers as there is discusion of the petition on NBC channel 13 here in Albany as well As the Times Union newspaper. Susan Steer, the woman who started the anti gun show petition, made a statement to the Times Union that apparently I'm making this fight personal, Hell yes I am, when you talk about limitations to my Constitutional rights I take it personal. Statements like this are the reason I started this petition, yes I do want the gun show to go on, but the fact that the anti gun movement rarely seems to be knowledgable in what there argue, and obviously don't have their heart in the fight.

      Wow, my friend Kelly Wallace just signed this petition with me not to cancel the gun show and her name was added to the other petitions that are pro Obummer and anti gun, as well. We both attend the Costa Mesa gun shows at the Orange County Fair Grounds and we support our gun shows.

      I am pro gun and pro constitution. For some reason, after I signed this petition not to cancel any gun shows. I hit skip to continue, my name was signed for Obama to end gun violence by taking guns away from law abiding citizens. I did not sign that. Then I skipped the next page and was signed for the anti gun show petition. I did not sign that either. After that I closed out the page so I don't know how many times my signature was used for pro Obummer or anti gun legislation. I am pro gun and pro constitution.

      The 2nd Amendment is the most important one of them all. It reinforces all the rest!
