"John McClane: You know what you get for being a hero? Nothin'. You get shot at. You get a little pat on the back, blah, blah, blah, attaboy. You get divorced. Your wife can't remember your last name. Your kids don't want to talk to you. You get to eat a lot of meals by yourself. Trust me, kid, nobody wants to be that guy.
Matt Farrell: Then why you doing this?
John McClane: Because there's no body else to do it right now, that's why. Believe me, if there were somebody else to do it, I'd let them do it, but there's not. So we're doing it.
Matt Farrell: Ah. That's what makes you that guy. "

Words To Live By
"The era of small government is over ... government has to be more proactive, more aggressive." ( Tim Pawlenty 2006)

"You're just petty politicians, who'd sooner sign onto the wisdom of a tyrant in another country, than the demands of ticked off voters in your own." (Neil Cavuto June 2008)

“I didn’t question her patriotism. I questioned her judgment.” Mr. Cheney went on: “The point I made and I’ll make it again is that Al Qaeda functions on the basis that they think they can break our will. That’s their fundamental underlying strategy, that if they can kill enough Americans or cause enough havoc, create enough chaos in Iraq, then we’ll quit and go home. And my statement was that if we adopt the Pelosi policy, that then we will validate the strategy of Al Qaeda. I said it, and I meant it.” (Vice President Cheney NYT Feb. 2007)

"A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers. (Ronald Reagan March 1, 1975)

"Oh, no! First of all, if I took one vote away from a serious candidate, it would be a sin." (Al Franken Time Magazine, 9/1/03)

DFL Walks Out On Their Own Gun Grab Hearing – UPDATE

(Updated to include links to contact DFL Legislators due to popular demand)

One full month into the 2013 MInnesota Legislative Session and the DFL majorities have yet to pass or introduce a budget or address jobs and the economy.  Gay marriage, gun control, and union wage increases are their priorities.

This week was dubbed “Gun Week”  with 3 days of committee hearings taking place. I think the DFL under overestimated their perceived mandate to take away gun rights from law abiding Minnesotans. During one of Wednesday’s hearings, 5 DFL members got up and walked out while a proponent of gun rights was testifying.

One of the main purposes of the committee hearings is to get public and expert input on proposed legislation before they reach the floor to be voted on, so you can fix them before they would become law. Given the proposed DFL rule change effectively removing the Amendment process on the floor, Committee Hearings are now even more important than ever to get Legislation done right.

Thousands and thousands of Minnesotans have shown up to voice and show their opposition to 17+ gun control laws proposed by the DFL this week. But the DFLers on the committee crafting the Legislation simply walked out.

The 5 DFL members were:

Representative Debra Hilstrom 40B 
Representative Shannon Savick 27A
Representative Dan Schoen 54A
Representative Erik Simonson 7B
Representative Linda Slocum 50A

Here is a short  clip of Republican Rep. Andrea Keiffer. In the first part she gives one example of someone using a “modern sporting rifle” in a legal matter of self defense.  In the last few seconds of the short clip she voices disappointment for those of us who saw Democrats show their disdain and disrespect for Minnesota’s gun owners during their “Gun Week”.
