Reply Nice Reply I am enjoying the creativity in the last few IAAGO’s. Reply Probably my favorite one yet. Well said, Eric! Reply Especially the last bullet pointe. Reply Absolutely! Eric – great pic and post Reply Well said and thank you, Eric. Reply A man with which not to eff… Reply Excellent success stories! Reply Well done, Eric. Reply Eric – you make me proud to be an American! Reply That’s great Eric. Glad to hear from you. I would like to point out that the NRA is decidedly NOT a civil rights organization, and the ACLU is Anti Second Amendment. Just a thought. Reply I do not agree with everything that the NRA does nor do I support everything the ACLU does. Both, by and large, take positions that I agree with and thus I support them with my membership and dues. The ACLU of LA has supported several gun owners in their suits against government entities. Here is one, a Google search for ACLU and Louisiana will show more. All politics are local. http://www.nola.com/crime/index.ssf/2012/03/dismissal_of_gun-rights_suit_u.html Reply I didn’t join the NRA until recently just because of that… you make excellent points for people that are still in my old mindset. Reply Welcome Eric and have you ever considered moving? Your hood sounds a little off the hook. Reply Yeah, two home invasions in five years, I’d be calling a real estate agent… Reply Never a dull moment. Imagine if I lived in a BAD neighborhood! Reply Eric, that’s easily the best gun-owner statement sheet yet. Much respect for supporting both NRA and ACLU. I think there are a lot of folks who are confused about the ACLU’s priorities, because the broader civil rights work I see them doing is just as important as that done by the 2A-focused orgs. Reply It’s great that you are here Eric, Randy Reply Im with you awesome for you post thank you for your service!!!! Reply NOLA? I thought that city ceased to exist. I haven’t been back since before Katrina., but a college buddy of mine was there a year later and was pretty stunned. At least one of my friends foolishly tried to ride it out–and did not make it. Nearly three hundred years later, it is still a ridiculous place to build a city. Nice to see Nagin getting his just desserts. If only they could take down the NOPD too. Reply Yup we are still here. We are having a little football game next week, you may see it in TV. Re: silly place to build a city- this place has been inhabited since right around the time Humans first walked past it. No sillier than Hoboken, NJ or L.A. (and I don’t mean lower Alabama). Sorry your friend did not make it though Katrina. I usually evacuate for the storms and then make a quick return. Stayed for a few- it is no joke- many ways to die during the storm- during Isaac I watched my neighbor’s slate roof become a death machine. Imagine 15 baseball pitching machines oscillating like a lawns sprinklers and randomly hurling slate roof tiles like ninja throwing stars. Unpleasant.
