Please email this man and express your disapproval at his "no" vote for the measure aimed at stemming the tide of illegal handguns in Pennsylvania. He and a number of his esteemed colleagues in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives shot down (pun intended) this important bill which would have helped control the illegal flow of handguns in our state. That these people have the NRA contributing to their campaigns is a given. That they can sell out the people they're supposed to be representing is not. They need to hear from us, and they need to feel us in November when they run for office. Here's what I told him:
"I am very disappointed in your "no" vote for the bill to stem the illegal transfer of handguns. It is difficult to understand what you might have been thinking (or not thinking) when you voted against this bill. As a registered Republican in Chester County, you can be sure that I will discuss your vote with any and all acquaintances, neighbors, friends, relatives, and anyone else I can corner to listen. And at the next election for your office, I will be voting for anyone but you. Sorry you made such a bad decision for the people of Pennsylvania."
Here are all the "no" voters (as reported by the Philadelphia Inquirer.)
House Speaker Dennis O'Brien (R., Phila.), Stephen Barrar (R., Delaware), Paul Clymer (R., Bucks), Gene DiGirolamo (R., Bucks), Robert Godshall (R., Montgomery), Art Hershey (R., Chester), Bob Mensch (R., Montgomery), Scott Petri (R., Bucks), and Thomas J. Quigley (R., Montgomery).
Let them know what losers they are. And don't forget them at election time. Time for them to go.
