It would appear that Pennsylvania gun owners may need to work a little harder to educate our opponents.
I don’t mean that we need to educate them on how firearms actually work or on the historical lessons of the Second Amendment – they’ll never listen to those messages.
What our opponents need is a return to elementary school spelling classes, perhaps with a mix of middle school civics to supplement their lessons.
.@SenTomlinson Vote no on Alloway emendment to HB 80 #PAgunsense

This tweet, with the creative spelling of amendment, went out to at least 26 Senators. I get that typos happen (don’t even get me started on how many people I see who add an extra ‘m’ to the word), but in a call to action tweet sent from a professionally staffed organization to over one half of the members of a legislative body, that’s a pretty sad mistake.
I hope that people on our side of the issue will remember to double check your tweets and messages before you start writing to lawmakers.

Ironically the word emend means to correct errors in something written.
So they’re saying to vote ‘No’ on correcting errors in the written laws?
And then there’s this …
… but maybe my brain is just befuddled right now.
No, the I seems to have been erased when I changed the formatting. Still, I didn’t send it to 26 Senators. :)
Like I said, I’m pretty forgiving of a typo or two. I’m just floored their tweet was targeted 26 different times and they never noticed the glaring error in the major word of the tweet!
And I see I left off a smiley or two, so I will make up for it here :-) :-) :-) :-)
When the enemy is making a mistake, let him. These errors ought to cause the senators to look askance at them…unless they are as dumb, which is a frightening probability these days.
