« Helmke Headed Out of Town? | Main | JG's Sylvia Smith Confirms Fort Wayne Observed Report »

Bill Hosler

With Helmke in charge that should set the gun grabber movement back 10 years. Maybe he can do for them what he done for Fort Wayne. One can only hope.

Mickey Mouse

So much for Helmke being the saviour of the local Republican Party.

Got this from the Brady website:
And for twenty of those years, we made real progress in reducing gun violence. But over the last five, you and I have watched as corrupt Congressional leaders — with support from the White House — have sold our country out to the NRA. That's why today, on this 25th anniversary of my shooting, I am launching the Campaign Against Illegal Guns. And I need your help.

Looks like Paul is going to work for an organization that is trying to fight the NRA- that would be popular with local Republicans.

Wow, Mickey. I hope that you and your loved ones are safe from illegal guns. I own small arms myself (legally), and would certaintly support restrictions on anyone owning them illegally. Why wouldn't I?

I think Mickey may have been more focused on this part:

"But over the last five, you and I have watched as corrupt Congressional leaders — with support from the White House — have sold our country out to the NRA."

But then again- is anyone surprised that Helmke is a democrat?

I think Helmke says it best:

“Who wouldn’t be for gun safety? Who wouldn’t be for prevention of unnecessary gun violence?”

The gun-nut lobby is so paranoid, though, that they'll probably find flaws even with that. (Oh, wait...you already did.)

I guess Mr. Helmke's "potential mayor" poll did not turn out the way he thought it would!

Paul Helmke is a perfect example of why the freedom loving citizens of Allen County do not wish to be governed by the same people who rule Fort Wayne.
