A Good Use For Gift Cards

I bought some memory a few weeks ago that had a rebate associated with it. The rebate came on one of those Visa gift cards. It’s only $20, and I always hate how they get you with the little bit left on the card. One thing you can do is donate to your favorite gun rights organization, and that way you can take off what’s on the card with a clean amount. I sent mine to NRA-ILA. I was pretty impressed with the performance in Illinois. That had a whole lot to do with Illinoisans standing up, but I was told by the lobbyist in Illinois that the office Fairfax lent more support to the effort than they have been given credit for, and they basically put whatever resources were necessary at their lobbysts’ disposal. I’m sure the performance could have been repeated in New York if it weren’t for shady back-room dealing on the part of the Governor, where gun owners had little input.

    More like the violation of the law/rule/whatever that new legislation has to “rest” (?) for 3 days so people could look at and comment on it. Cuomo … I’ll bet he looked at the Illinois failure and made sure that part of it wouldn’t be repeated.

      Cuomo justified it by declaring a “state of emergency”, but I think the “emergency” claim is tenuous at best. I sincerely hope the law is challenged, and found unconstitutional!

      Sadly, however, we *are* talking about the New York Supreme Court, however…but it does make me wonder: would it be possible to challenge the law at the Federal Supreme Court level? Perhaps–indeed, we have precedence with Florida’s Supreme Court violating their Constitution in Bush v. Gore–but it’s probably going to be a tough sell.
