Do we know what their friendliness towards Constitutionally protected rights are?

The two appointments sound like they will do everything in their power to make sure you will not be able to carry.

I don't get a good 2A vibe from reading their backgrounds as posted. BJ does not want anyone to have the right to protect themselves other than his own bodyguards. Where are the qualifications that would make these people objective for making fair decisions regarding who gets to be CCL holders?

Jon Johnson was already on the board and continues. He is listed as an Independent. Given the board history of overturning objections, although we havent seen any FOIA numbers lately, Im curious what some comments are based on although I get that JBP is not pro 2A.

Inger Burnett-Zeigler shows as a Democrat, but searching found nothing firearms related in her background.

Didnt look at the other 2.

Inger Burnett-Zeigler could swing either way, just because she's a Democrat means nothing. My ophthalmologists wife is a psychiatrist, hard core Wisconsin raised right wing Republican BUT is anti-gun. My ophthalmologist is from Spokane Washington, left wing and pro-gun.

They met in medical school and got married. They are a pretty strange couple.

I am kind of curious what impact, if any, having 2 vacant positions on the board does to their meeting schedules and decision making/voting?

updated May news release
