Ladies and Gents,
Lori Mick is correct.....

Have any of you noticed the deadline for this petition? It's dead! Relax, no one's going to take your babies away from you!
Obviously anti-gunner, but correct in that the petition deadline was 5-22-2008.
I think the "Spirit" of the intent is grand, but the only real way to make an impact is to flood the representative offices with correspondences wherein a name and address is attached, which then increases it's validity from the representatives' constituents.
Fax, email directly, or phone is my suggestion. Personally I stay away from these petitions because of the inappropriate and unprofessional comments that get posted which tend to undermine the cause. Much of the rhetoric that is posted has been heard before. Write a good argument with facts to back up your position and not, “Ted Kennedy's car has killed more people than my gun.” Although true… it turns a deaf ear on a valid argument.
But it's a moot point with the deadline having passed months ago.
