Dennis,

Just read the following good news concerning the defeat
of proposed gun restrictions in Washington State.  Do
you know the struggle in the MASS House is going?

"In Washington, where one in five residents owns a handgun, the National
Rifle Association and other gun advocacy groups outspent by 3-to-1
supporters of a proposition to require gunowners to pass an exam or take an
eight-hour safety course to get licensed. The measure would also require
all new guns be sold with trigger locks. The NRA criss-crossed the state,
warning that proponents' hidden agenda was to eventually register and
confiscate all handguns."
