Who is responsible for the resolution? In my opinion the cudos for origination go to Mark and Jim. But ultimately it goes to all the folks like you who pick up the baton and carry the resolution through your own counties. This is a grassroots revolution that belongs to the people.
Many of us watch both sites and share the info back and forth. We are all in this together. As in any large effort that involves many people there are little miscommunications and duplication of effort but we all seem to take that in stride.
Absolutely right Molly as regards the current wave of resolutions sweeping the state. I must praise my local ISRA guy here in Shelby County though. Jim Warren, a county board member himself and the local ISRA contact, went to the county board back in 2003 after a spate of gun laws was proposed in Springfield and had a similar proposal passed here. He then sent copies to both houses of legislature as well as the gov. After Mark and Jim L. resurected the idea this Spring, Jim W. had a confirmation vote here to re-enforce the stance. Not to take away at all from the work that's been done by the folks in Pike and Brown counties, on this board and across the state to get this movement rolling. Without everyone's efforts, we wouldn't be at 56 and counting. I'm just kinda proud that a local, home-town fella' had the idea several years ago.
"Just the facts ma'am, just the facts".
Let's see now, 56 green, 6 more proposed. If we get all of them, that'll put us at 60+%!!!!!!!! Who'da thunk back in May that we'd have 60% before Thanksgiving!!!?????
Now, I gotta check with my buddy in Bond and Clinton counties and see if he's heard anything.
