    as you know a bill to ban hi-cap mags will be introduced this thursday by diana gette..

    two republicans stated they would be open to vote yes for such a ban..chris stewert and tom petri

    after a onslaught of e-mails and face book postings mr stewart has changed his mind and is now the poster child for the NRA

    but republican tom peti seems not to want to respond...maybe he doesnt realize how many of his constituents are outraged about this......or maybe he just doesnt give a dam:steamed:

    lets write him and let him know how we feel....if we were to flip back two guys that were going to cross partylines and were the two mentioned in the huff post article it may send a small message to any other flippers

    Make sure mr. petri understands he will face a primary challenge from the tea party next time, then follow through ...

    He'll probably switch parties and become a DemocRAT. No primary and plenty of 47%ers in Cheese Land. :steamed:

    Hrmph. He knocked on my door once, and let him in, shook his hand and let him give me a brochure. This had to be over 30 years ago. He must really be a career politician.

    He was elected in 1979. Maybe he is thinking of retiring and doesn't care.

    He doesn't ALLOW non-constituents to email him through his Congressional web page. That should tell everyone exactly what we need to know about Mr. Petri!!

    It is very likely we will get an address fail unless we use an actual real correct address.

    Well a high-cap ban would leave 30 round standard mags still available for ARs and AKs, and 17 round mags for the Glock 17, but would perhaps ban 120 round drums and 33 round Glock 18 mags... correct?

    Or are you talking about a standard capacity ban... if so, we have already lost the battle if we use their MISLEADING, PROPAGANDIST, MADE UP TERM "high cap" to refer to standard capacity magazines...

    Maybe we can get to this guy through facebook. I'm outside of his area, but I would really like to drop him a note.

    Watch...
    You'll see some from both sides of the aisle sell out.
    And I mean literally, SELL out.

    Don't imagine for a moment there are not congressmen/women who will happily sell their political future for the right price.

    And the money to purchase those votes WILL appear, as if by magic.

    Now known throughout the land as


    Last Term Tom Petri


    I've never really actively campaigned for anyone but I will spend every waking moment working against anyone that supports this bilge.

    We'll see when it's posted, but typically when they talk hi-cap they are talking anything in excess of 10. So, that would mean you standard G17 and AR mags are history.

    Maybe one day people will learn not to vote just Dem/Rep...they like to turn their backs on their people.

    Not surprised about this guy...and not surprised many other republicans are doing this. democrats and republicans are the same, its all about the 'flavor of the month' and whats popular.
