The Delco Times, my home town paper, I suppose you could call it, is busy making CeaseFire PA out to be more than it really is:
One of CeaseFirePAâ€™s advertisements featured a letter to Meehan, a former U.S. attorney and Delaware County district attorney. The letter in the ad was written by Mike Carroll, former president of the International Association of Chiefs of Police.
There’s also a quote by someone rumored to be a reader around these parts:
â€œI recognize the decision for him is a tough one, but I support what he did,â€ said McMonigle, also a member of the Firearms Owners Against Crime. â€œPat Meehan understands that the Second Amendment supports law abiding citizens having the right to arm themselves. Pat Meehan also understands that right doesnâ€™t stop at state borders. Iâ€™m still a law abiding citizen in the United States of America.â€
Good representation there, Dan. As for Nacheman, he’s a paid stooge, and if there’s any evidence that CeaseFire PA is anything more than a couple of people, and a paid stooge, I haven’t seen it. Looks like Casey and Toomey don’t want to comment, which is the smart move. Why bother giving the Delco Times more ammunition to whip this into more of a controversy than it really is? It’s only a controversy because Max Nacheman pitched it to you, and the media is gullible and sympathetic.
