That is a crazy argument. There are more of us regular Joes being targeted than the elites on an annual basis. His argument is only based on his believe the elites are more valuable than we are. It's sickening.

Re: HB 508, HB 928, HB 972, HB 1349 on the Senate Calendar t

Thank you. It's still frustrating that what I consider a bad or unnecessary amendment can be added to an otherwise worthy bill. I would like to see it stand on its own just as the original bill does and go through the committee process. This may be impractical but I think it should have to go through the process in order to avoid the extraneous pork and mud that gets added using amendments.

Amendments ARE voted on separately.
So, the amendment was added to the bill via a vote of the house or senate? If so, who voted to add the amendment to the bill in order to give certain people the right to carry where others are not allowed?

Senator Carona "amended" the bill by attaching a different bill to it. It passed, so now it becomes law, including the amendment, which grants elected officials special privileges they're not willing to give us. Since he's my Senator, he will definitely be hearing from me as soon as I have all the facts.
Your comment hear makes it sound like the amendment was added by one Senator and not that the house or senate voted to add the amendment to the bill. Help me understand.

I wish amendments were not allowed without a separate vote for the amendment on a standalone basis.
