Thank you Longmeadow

When we looked around the gymnasium during our votes last night it was IMG_20160511_110427 (1)surprising, gratifying, and inspiring to see the townspeople of Longmeadow hold up their yellow “VOTE NO” cards to crush the attack on our personal freedoms.

The right to firearms is guaranteed by our constitution, and that was shouted loud and clear.

  1. Full disclosure – I am not a Longmeadow resident but do live in Western MA.

    So glad that the law abiding citizens of Longmeadow stopped this attempt at control in its tracks. I fear these tactics are attempts to find “cracks” with which to exploit then further the agenda to restrict or outright abolish the 2nd Amendment and, with it, a significant means of self defense.

    Thanks to all who stood up for their right to bear arms.

  2. Thank you Steven

    We took this very seriously.

  3. I live in cental MA but I donated a small amount since a successful attack on our rights in one town will embolden gun grabbers elsewhere. Was waiting for the outcome last night and went to bed happy. Great job, Longmeadow Citizens for Liberty!

  4. Just a note of congrats from a like minded individual in another deep blue enclave (IL). Keep up the good work!

    Dear Henry,
    I heard you on Cam & Company. I am so proud of you and your fellow townspeople. I am one of the grandmother’s you spoke about. A younger grandmother to be sure. I live in New York State, so 2nd ammendment and constitutional rights are regularly ignored here. I have never owned or carried a gun, however, I am a huge supporter of the Constitution. I have recently inquired on the process of acquiring a gun permits and will be pursuing the process. The only thing gun laws do is take guns away from law abiding citizens of our country. The federal government’s goal is to disarm the citizenry not stop gun violence. Keep up the good fight. Bless you and Walt Lamon.

    As life long residents of Longmeadow, my husband and I were disappointed we couldn’t be at the Town meeting to speak against the gun control articles. Neither of us owns guns, but my husband was a National Guard sharp shooter, and I learned to shoot as a youngster at the Agawam Sportsman’s Club.

    We wish to thank you all for the manner in which you handled the debates. Not knowing who any of you are, we could not offer to sport a sign on our lawn, or offer our thanks in person.

    Than you again.

  8. Thanks to the Constitutional Rights and Liberty loving free citizens of Longmeadow for Voting down these outlandish gun control measures. I am a former Longmeadow resident, and think the town is a great place. The preservation of our Second Amendment rights are essential to our personal and national security. We are Blessed to live in a Constitutional Republic. Not only did the U.S. Supreme Court fully recognize and describe the individual rights of the People to Keep and Bear Arms (and not just as a part of the military or state militias) in the Heller decision and its progeny, but more recently, in a unanimous ( 4 liberal and 4 conservative justices ) U.S. Supreme Court decision in the case of Caetano vs. Massachusetts, the nation’s highest court reaffirmed and clarified our Second Amendment rights by invalidating the conviction of a woman who intended to use less than deadly force to defend herself (a stun gun) against a domestic abuser. The US Supreme Court also warned that the justices were more concerned about governments bureaucrats disarming American citizens in exchange for a false sense of safety or security that the state often fails in delivering. Keep Liberty alive for your children, grandchildren and all future generations of Americans!
