Tell the MGOA to drop their support of LD 778. I just did.

E-Mail:
Info4@MGOA.com

Telephone:
846-3000

Address:
PO Box 373
Yarmouth ME 04096

FYI: Jeff Weinstein is President of the organization. [url=http://www.mgoa.com/]website[/url]
Also, LD 778 makes it more difficult to get a concealed carry permit.

This is pure obstructionist bullfeathers & I sent an email to this bunch of morons saying just that. I cc'd it to a number of Legislative folks who, no doubt, are not taken in by such idiocy. Most of them are the sort who are capable of discerning sheep and goats when they see them.

I will never have anything to do with MGOA. They are either too stupid to protect gun owner's rights, or they are a front group working to incrementally remove guns from law abiding citizens. The NRA magazines did a wonderful expose last month on a lot of "pro-gun" groups out there, who are really gun-ban groups.

MGOA obviously doesn't have a clue, or isn't pro-gun. Either way, they deserve to lose support.

Check around. I think Jeff is on the wrong side of the fence on this one. With that said, he usually is not. He and Mark Cenci have been marching and in the faces of the other side, sometimes without much help.

He ain't Sarah Brady. IMHO, he simply overreacted to the ignorance he sees every week in his class. By "ignorance", I do NOT mean "stupidity". I mean "lack of information".

Mr. Weinstein has been active fighting bad gun legislation for quite a while. I have never though of him as "a bad guy" but a fellow brother in arms. This latest round of foolishness saddens me.

It was quite avoidable and there were several ways out even if all the original intensions were honest and just a little shortsighted. The bottom line as far as I am concerned is when a piece of legislation has [i][b]Ethan "Ban Everything" Strimling as a co-sponsor[/b][/i] and the NRA and SAM and [b]VERY[/b] opposed to it, it is not a bill that is good for the Maine gun owner. After having the problems exposed and refusing to pull the legislation, and still moving ahead with it in the face of so many knowledgeable people opposing it is bad enough, but placing the support of the Gun Owners of Maine behind it with a recommendation for passage could be a death nail in the coffin of the once useful organization.

It is all sad and confusing but the thing that is rock-solid is that the legislation must not be passed. How in the hell can we have the strictest carry permit system in the entire country and still have the legislative necessity to make it even tougher? It can't go both ways.

How many members does MGOA have?

Were the members consulted about Jeff's support for this bill or did Jeff just take it upon himself to support/introduce the bill?

Is MGOA affilliated with Gunowners of America?

Did MGOA approach GOA before putting his support behind this bill if affiliated with GAO?

I cannot imagine Larry Pratt of GAO supporting this bill!

MGOA is not affiliated with GOA. It's Maine Gun Owners [b]Association[/b] and Gun Owners Of [b]America[/b]. GOA does [b]not[/b] support this Bill.

I thought so Mike, I remember a couple of years ago on AMG, Jeff and a few others were dissatisfied with SAM and Smith, the king of SAM, and his policies affecting Maine.

Jeff set up the MGOA and I sent them a donation, because I thought we needed another gun oriented organization other then SAM in the state.

I was sent a notification of my donation and a thanks and then never heard another word from MGOA. I assumed MGOA died a natural death of uninterest as is typical of grassroot efforts.

So Jeff Weinstein, I wonder why you never sent me a yearly due fee or any solicitation after my initial donation, How many members do you have in your Association?

I suspect that MGOA has just one member - Jeff Weinstein.
