11. I think the AHSA position is in a state of evolution
Edited on Wed Oct-29-08 01:42 PM by derby378
They were formed back in June 2005, same as Amendment II Democrats. They've already had a turnover when John Rosenthal left AHSA to head up Stop Handgun Violence, and Ray has indeed donated to folks like the Brady Campaign several years back. But from what he's been telling me, Ray has been misquoted in the past concerning semi-automatics, and does not want to see a new ban enacted.

AHSA is still in its infancy when you consider that the NRA is 150 years old, so a few growing pains are to be expected. I think we should watch how this organization develops. They know we're here, and they're listening.
