juicy steak dinner.
Bigstock

If you answered “yes” to all three questions above, then there’s an upcoming dinner party you might want to crash attend.

From Patriot Picket comes news of an event that a Maryland law firm — one that specializes in “government relations” — is throwing for members of the state Senate’s Judicial Proceedings Committee:

Bellamy Genn represents Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown For Gun Safety civilian disarmament advocacy org. B-G is Everytown’s lobbying firm in the Old Line State.

Why would the Bellamy Genn lobbyists invite the members of the Judicial Proceedings Committee at this particular time? Well, there are a couple of gun control bills currently before the committee; a safe storage mandate bill and another requiring FFL’s to maintain electronic records.

But especially after yesterday’s debacle in Virginia, maintaining good relations with committee members — especially in light of the pending “assault weapons” ban and registration bill, HB 1261 — is more critical than ever.

So the upcoming steak diner be a fun night out with the family…a good opportunity to randomly bump into one of your legislators and say “hi” to some of the folks from Everytown at the same time

Just be careful that you don’t slip on an invisible banana peel and spill your cranberry vodka on anyone’s $1000 suit. We wouldn’t want Everytown to have to foot a dry cleaning bill like that.

  1. In a normal world, one could consider this bribery. Inviting politicians to paid-for dinner and drink “get together”. And you wonder why people don’t trust government.

    • Someone should inform these liberals that eating meat, especially steak, is no longer acceptable behavior among their liberal peers.

    • It’s completely legal as long as the external org/lobbyist invites the ENTIRE committee or subcommittee and not just specific representatives by name.

      You know what IS criminal? The NRA not doing exactly the same thing. So now Maryland gun owners, most of whom are NRA members because of how ranges work here, have to drag their asses down to Annapolis and jam their noses against the window since the NRA doesn’t actually do anything for us.

      Fuck the NRA. Join GOA, SAAF, RKBA nationally or MSI and MSRPA in Maryland.

    • When I worked for a small state college in southern fly-over country oh so long ago, we had to sign an ethics law document acknowledging we would not accept meals EVER, or corporate bling (coffee mugs, hats, shirts, etc) worth more than $25 total.

      Anyone in purchasing or contracts couldn’t accept anything, cup of coffee, soda, pad of post-its, peppermint after dinner mint, etc. Nothing.

      There were several conferences I attended where I had to brown bag it, or go hungry to keep my job.

      When a congress critter makes $175,000, a pension, and free top-tier health care for free, AND! get bribes like these, but I can’t eat a danish, I get irritated

  2. Love a good steak.
    Would be happy to explain to them folks how very wrong they are.
    Don’t live anywhere near there.
    Don’t own a suit either.

    Guess I’ll just have to cook myself a steak at home.

    Oh well.

  3. “spill your cranberry vodka on anyone’s $1000 suit”

    Is Wayne gong to be there? Oh wait. Never mind. His suits run 10 times that.

  4. Ruth’s Chris is *tasty* steak.

    Why the fuck would I want to ruin my digestion in the company of those type of ‘people’?

    If I’m paying that much for good beef, I wanna enjoy it, for cripe’s sake…

    • Ribeye, medium rare, btw. Baked potato and creamed spinach on the side. Shrimp cocktail beforehand if I’m feeling extra-hungry. Scotch for dessert.

  5. Several folks have written their legislators about ethical impropriety. Of the few who responded (Republicans … shocking, I know) they indicated that it’s not a violation of the rules of ethics as long as the “sponsor” invites the entire committee or the entirety of the House/Senate. So apparently, bribery is fine as long as everyone gets some.

  6. I ate at Ruth Chris in St Louis last summer ( flew in for the last series of Cards vs Cubs ) ,was walking by and we went in for an early dinner . Wasn’t impressed at all we dropped $250 for a so so dinner for two .

    • I took a lady friend to Ruth’s Chris in Fairfax VA one time and dined with the swells. We both had filet mignon (best I ever had, but at those prices it was supposed to be), some fries on the side ($11 extra per person) and a glass each of merlot (a glass, not a bottle, and NOT Chateau Lafitte Rothschild 1936) and it all came to about $225 for everything. And no, I did not get laid that evening, but that’s another story. I even wore a sport coat and tie (with my starched collar), but luck did not attend me. I kept expecting Duke to appear, but then I remembered that he ran a different steakhouse in DC. It was a memorable occasion, for sure, but I haven’t been back since. Steak and eggs with home fries and a cup of joe at the local diner is more my style.

  7. These dinners should be made to feel the exact same way Sara Sanders was made to feel when she and her family where out to dinner. And were harassed by the democrat goon squad.
    This Is our world today. Thank You congresswoman Mad Max watters.

  8. No thanks. Had prime rib after my quail hunt Sunday afternoon. I like a little variety in my diet. Shameless plug. Check out Southwind Plantation.

      • SAFE, about 10 miles shy of Bainbridge. Lunch was fried chicken, new potatoes, field peas, fried okra and corn bread. Peach cobbler for dessert. A la mode. Quail hunt. Relaxed at our lodge for a bit. Social hour. Bacon wrapped quail breast and fried gator tail for apps. Prime rib, mashed and green beans for dinner. Banana foster for dessert. Southern country breakfast. Open bars in all lodges. (I was the designated driver.) Do I look look like that when I’m drunk? Five star accommodations with hunting attached. Been there several times. Highly recommend. Stayed in the Owner’s Retreat. The full body mount leopard over the bar was impressive.

        • Co-worker mentioned that very place. Will need to give it a try when I am anywhere near that area….. and have the right kind of shotgun.

  9. That seems a little close to incitement for my comfort. I’m not a fan of “making a crowd” or any of that garbage though so feel free to chide me otherwise.

    That said, pics of people who you wouldn’t think schmoozing with Bloomberg lackeys would be totally within boundaries.

    Lastly, who the fuck is leaking this stuff out? Between this and the audio someone’s got wicked oppo research going on right now. It’s uncanny.

  10. It might be a good way to go undercover and find out WHO the left really wants to be president because Bloomberg is a blooming idiot who uses his mouth as a shoe and I’m starting to be convinced that he is just in this race to make somebody else look good.

    • I have heard a rumor that he is not really seeking actual election, instead avoiding campaign finance violations while (actually) donating 1-2 billion dollars to defeating Trump. We’ll see if that’s true when Sanders wins the nomination.

  11. Facial Recognition has identified all firearms owners in America. The food abd drink firearms owners receive will be tainted with an influenza virus or bacterial infection.

    • Trying to pull our leg, I see. Ha, ha, very funny. How would a vegan even know about TTAG?

      And what’s `tyranny’ about an agricultural system that provides the public with tasty animal products at reasonable prices (just avoid Ruth’s Chris)?

  12. Lol nice low key threats boomers hahahaha. You literally threaten you enemies with vandalism hahaha wow you sure are fighting for gun rights totally not sellouts hahahah. Veild threats are surely the way to preserve the second amendment. Love the controlled opposition loser-think on this site lol.
