    Exeter, RI Votes to Recall Anti-Gun Council Members Today
    By Dan Zimmerman on December 14, 2013


    “I didn’t realize that so many people here in our corner of Rhode Island were so passionate about guns,” a nonplussed Calvin Ellis told the Wall Street Journal. Bless his heart. It’s safe to say, though, that he and his three fellow Exeter town council members have now been thoroughly educated on that matter. That’s because, as RF relayed, 80% of the town council – Ellis included – stand to lose their jobs in a recall election today because they voted to transfer their shall-issue concealed carry licensing authority to the state’s may-issue attorney general. As resident Letitia Davis told wsj.com, ”Our rights are at issue here—our Second Amendment rights as well as our rights to be listened to by our elected leaders.” We’re listening, Letitia. And watching. You go, girl. [h/t SZ]
    LOL! We just got rid of three political parasites ourselves. Good luck!

    The comments are interesting.

    Rhode Island is a lot more culturally conservative than most people know.
    "Faith is nothing but a firm assent of the mind : which, if it be regulated, as is our duty, cannot be afforded to anything but upon good reason, and so cannot be opposite to it."

      Liberals finding out that the people won't sit silently by and be ruled?

      Priceless.
      “I do not aim with my hand; he who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
      I aim with my eye.

      "I do not shoot with my hand; he who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
      I shoot with my mind.

      "I do not kill with my gun; he who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father.
      I kill with my heart.”

        And ugly.
        The year's at the spring
        And day's at the morn;
        Morning's at seven;
        The hill-side's dew-pearled;
        The lark's on the wing;
        The snail's on the thorn:
        God's in his heaven—
        All's right with the world!

          I imagine part of it has to do with the Navy War College being located there.
