The hot topic seemed to be the lawsuit(s) status, and reciprocity. A LOT of reciprocity and permit talk.
Had a group of young black couples come over and they were very interested in the state of things, and wanted to talk about how MD goes as far as they do to complicate the Right. I think the men are firefighters, and the group came off as being very tight-knit and at least borderline conservative.
Overall, though, a productive day. About half a dozen new memberships (with maybe a couple more to come online), and a decent day of HQL donations.
Very nice to have some new faces helping out during the Sunday morning shift. Things were slow but we were able to engage a number of people for good discussions. Brought in some new members, broadened the email list, and picked up a few bucks toward the HQL lawsuit. Always a surprise or two when dealing with the public but that is what makes working events a fun time.
Here's another Saturday afternoon feel good story:
A youngish couple made a beeline to the table, Seems hubby came to the show to engage us. He joined and after some discussion, I found out he was stationed at Ft. Meade, and several of his co-workers were interested in us. He left with a bunch of encouragement and a fistful of "MSI In a Nutshell" brochures. It made my afternoon!
Thank you for all that you do. So many of us have given many hours and risked ourselves publicly to profess the truth.
"...show them your support for gun rights" says NRA's Shannon Alford, she continues that an email or a phone call is important, but nothing has a bigger impact than talking directly to your representative. “Your voice in Annapolis is your vote in Annapolis,” says Alford.
