i'm in the thompson center and there is about 10 people in white shirts sitting down in front of the metal detectors, blocking about 80 people from entering the higher floors of this state facility. there are children (pawns?) picketing, about 20 of them, walking around in a circle (for the past hour) holding signs saying "Pass Gun Laws" and "Pass Gun Legislation." There are about 10 media types with video cameras and what not. i just want to know what kinds of laws do they want passed because the fact of the matter is CRIMINALS DON'T ABIDE BY THE LAW!

Strange, I just came back from there. I must have passed you. I thought I detected a presence.....

Nah, I dont' know what it was all about. People seemed to be getting through when I was there. They blocked the metal detector....so they just moved people waiting to get upstairs to the other detector. D'oh

See, if we were allowed to have handguns we could have dispersed that crowd rather easily. I've got my FOID card, just waiting for the go-ahead!
