    Default Project Gestapo Amendment question?

    I was just looking on the NAGR website at how the state senators voted on our 2nd issues and I am confused.
    http://www.nationalgunrights.org/top...tor-voted/item

    Why did everyone who voted pro 2nd amendment vote against it on that one and vice versa. If you look at the chart the color code it red=against 2nd, green=pro 2nd am. It doesnt make sense why someone who is pro who vote for the gestampo amendment. Its not just 1, or 5, or even 15, but all or atleast almost all voted this way. Please help me understand.

    Not having read it and just by looking at who voted for what, I'd say it has to do with the wording of it. As long as my two senators voted differently than what Diane Feinstein voted, I think it's all good. Kansas' senators are really pro gun and I've always been able to count on them.

    I guess I'm missing something... I can understand what each Senator voted for or against based on the description at the top of the page, but "Project Gestapo" is just a little too 'inside baseball' for me to understand the meaning. So can someone enlighten me as to what Project Gestapo means? That way I can try to put my head around what Chuckie Schumer here in NY voted against, when he voted "FOR" every other piece of anti-2A legislation. (And don't forget Gillibrand... when Chuckie pulls the ring hanging out of her back, her lips move and his words come out)

    This is from an article explaining project Gestapo

    http://www.keepandbeararms.com/infor...em.asp?ID=1306


    LaPierre, Executive Vice President of the National Rifle Association, joined the meeting to promote what proponents are calling "Project Exile." Rocky Mountain Gun Owners said a better name for the policy is "Project Gulag," as its effect will be to send honest gun owners to prison for technical violations of unconstitutional firearms laws. The policy has also been called "Project Gestapo" for its ominous parallels to tactics employed by Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia.


    Bob Glass, a founder of the Tyranny Response Team, said the problem with "Project Gestapo" is that it doesn't differentiate between violent criminals and those who merely violate technical firearms laws which aren't even constitutional. LaPierre's Project will affect those who bear arms to protect*against*violent criminals, not just the criminals themselves. Glass and others said "Project Gestapo" is bound to have a chilling effect on the use of guns for self-defense.

    Most people don't even know what an "illegal gun" is by the myriad of conflicting definitions in force today. Some fear the police, acting on tips from ignorant informants, will eventually seek more no-knock raid warrants to break down the doors of gun owners.

    The NRA's Neal Knox is seeking to oust LaPierre and restore the organization to its role in protecting honest gun owners. Knox sent out a letter complaining about many of LaPierre's comments and policies (available at*http://www.co-freedom.com/2000/02/nraleaders.html.)

    Of course, "Project Gestapo" won't be enforced consistently. For instance, as Kevin Flynn wrote March 5 for*The Rocky Mountain News,*Dave Conner, who now works for the U.S. attorney's office, once carried an illegal handgun to work. Conner may have broken at least three laws, according to Flynn: "It is illegal in Denver to carry a loaded weapon. Colorado law prohibits carrying a concealed weapon without a permit. And federal law forbids most people from bringing guns into federal buildings."

    But did U.S. Attorney Tom Strickland call on Conner to serve time in federal prison? Of course not. Instead, Strickland will work with Conner to "Exile" non-violent citizen gun owners to prison. Strickland had highest praise for his law-breaking fellow prosecutor: "Dave Conner has one of the finest reputations of any prosecutor who's ever served in Colorado. He admitted a mistake, it was fully investigated and he was reprimanded. We're honored that he would consider returning to the U.S. attorney's office."

    When politicians, bureaucrats, legal enforcers and other members of the political elite break the law, it's a "mistake" for which they*
