Town Hall conference calls are big. I was on my third one tonight sponsered by Del. Tom Rust. I don’t really like or trust Del. rust because what he did to Herndon and what he hasn’t done for us now. He has no spine and pushes some bad legislation-especially catering towards the “liberal” side. Oh, Del Rust is a republican.
We talked about the Blue and Orange metro lines, single liscense plates on vehicles, how the stimulus money would be used, roadway maintenance and building (I’m yawning here) and then came a pop question. Do you think that cancealed carry holders should be allowed in restaurants where they serve alcohol? The tally was 30% said yes and 70% said no. This tells me one of three things: 1. People don’t understand Constitutional rights 2. People are afraid of what they don’t know about (firearms) 3. The Republican party STILL doesn’t get it-or at least here in NoVa. It looks like I will have to find a party that upholds the Constitution regardless of what they call themselves because it is damn sure the current political parties don’t!
