Today while at work I got a text from the head of the Lane county chapter of Moms demand. Text was inviting me to a member meeting tonight at a local restaurant. I showed up at 7, Recognized a few from my last interaction with them. We went around the table did introductions, I talked about my kids safety program. Some were receptive one was truly a ANTI most were moderates and would least here me out. I listened to their ideas, I interjected told a story. A story of Chris Mintz, since they were quick to always bring up UCC. They had no Idea I know Chris personally and have felt the bullet still in his back. They talked background checks, I talked policy. UCC was a gunfree zone, yet under state statute its completely legal to carry there with a valid CHL. The ANTI and I went rounds she was definitely a problem. I easily handled the others. The chair for the Democratic party of Lane County was there. He actually said he was glad i was there, he asked for a brochure of my kids class. I obliged. Key take aways from tonight: Moms don't want a total ban. They are more moderate than I thought. They fear what they don't know. At a local level they are dinosaurs when it comes to organizing. Problem spots: If the democratic party gets involved they will use their soldiers to definitely propel their cause. The ANTI lacked reason and had a genuine hatred for me and what I stood for. All in all I held my own, and ran the ANTI out of the room with my reasoning not emotion. A win for me.
