From a online community bulletin board:


York Poquoson Democratic Committee

Next Meeting--7 p.m. Monday, March 12

York High School Library

Topic: Gun myths, the 2nd Amendment and Virginia legislation

Guest Speaker: Andy Goddard, President of the Richmond Chapter of the Million Mom March and Legislative Director of the Virginia Center for Public Safety

Mr. Goddard’s interest in mental health issues and gun safety came about as a result of his son’s injuries sustained in the Virginia Tech tragedy of 4/16/2007. He is now the President of the Richmond Chapter of the Million Mom March against gun violence and Legislative Director of the Virginia Center for Public Safety. He also served on the Board of the Virginia Behavioral Health and Developmental Services and was the first Board Chair of the National Gun Victims Action Council. The York Poquoson Democrats are extending a special invitation to high school students and the public at large to attend this meeting.

Wonder if they will invite Sheriff Danny Diggs to speak. He is very well versed on the subject. He speaks his mind with honesty and integrity.

It'll be interesting to see what kind of crowd they draw. York County is one of the most conservative, republican pro-gun localities in the state.

That they're having the event at a school is telling. Andy Goddard gets nervous when he has to be around people carrying.

Gents, both of your thoughts crossed my mind when I read the notice.

My first thought was that the location was an attempt to isolate themselves from those who carry. Second, I thought of Sheriff Diggs, who I respect a great deal. In fact, I sent Sheriff Diggs an e-mail suggesting he attend.
