Multi-state Alert: February 17, 1998

Representative Lisa Lutz, the sponsor of the Vermont-style
Carry Bill for New Mexico (HB 296) must be getting the
attention of the enemy. While sitting in a House
Appropriations Committee meeting on February 11th,
Representative James G. Taylor, the anti-gun water boy for
Speaker Raymond Sanchez, walked up behind her and slapped
her on the back of the head!

GOA's State and Local Affairs Director Dennis Fusaro, who
witnessed the incident, was shocked. "What is this?" said
Fusaro, "The New Mexico House, or Animal House?" Lutz asked
Fusaro not to act on his first impulse and return the favor
to Taylor. GOA members need not exercise similar restraint
in expressing their (1st Amd) outrage at this kind of

When a Vermont-style carry law was introduced in Oregon, its
sponsor, Representative Patti Milne, was verbally abused by
anti-gun House Rep. George Eighmey.

Oregon GOA members were alerted and flooded Eighmey with
calls, faxes and E-mails. At the second hearing for the bill
Eighmey publicly apologized and credited GOA members for
"showing him the light."

Taylor's physical abuse calls for no less of a response.
Let's show Taylor the same light Oregon members showed
Eighmey. Contact Taylor and Speaker Sanchez and tell them
what you think of Taylor's outrageous behavior.

same thing: (505) 986-4758/4757.

other states about the kind of nonsense he is letting happen.
