This is how it's going down folks - any way they can, at every level. There's no question we're in the fight of our lives to preserve the Second Amendment!!

If you live in Wayland, PLEASE MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD!



From GOAL:

GOAL has learned that the town warrant up for vote contains language which would make the lawful discharge of firearms illegal.



This would include the Wayland Rod & Gun Club. If you know any residents of Wayland please urge them to attend the town meeting this Tuesday night and defeat this petition.

...

Please note, the town meeting is open only to residents, please do not attend if you are not a resident.


Here's a link to the town warrant: http://www.wayland.ma.us/Pages/WaylandM ... 014Art.pdf

The article in question is on the very last page, of course ... :roll:

I know this town and am not surprised. At one time it was all farm land, apple orchards etc. If you follow Commonwealth ave out of Boston, rt. 30, you will stumble into on of the most Martha Stewart type of towns with rolling hills and post card Christmas scenes. My sister's father in law remarried a woman from Wayland and when she died he had to sell their 250 yr old colonial because he couldn't afford the taxes. It was once a sleeper town when I was a kid, (black and white t.v. and 3 channels kid!) Now every other house is a doctor or lawyer with a mom with nothin' to do but make you do whatever the f_ _ k they want!!!!!

Ahh yeah that's right - this is a metro Boston town. Well, that figures! Explains alot ....

That part of the state should just annex itself and form it's own communist utopia! Cambridge can be the new capitol ... :idea: :lol:

Kinda reminds me of a bunch of people that bought houses near a local race track. They didn't know it would be noisy on race nights and wanted the track shut down. MORONS. Well it didn't work out well for them and the track will remain open.

(The original meeting date of January 21, 2014, was cancelled due to weather.)

I just don't get it. Didn't the whole independence thing start in Mass some 240 plus years ago. Now a majority are just willing to give it up. I cannot believe some of the politicians that have been voted in up there. :doh:

I remember once reading a "quote" that went something like this: He who gives up his freedom for security, deserves neither! I know it was one of our founding fathers, who are rolling over in their graves due to such foolishness.

Yep - that was Ben Franklin. Those words carry the same weight they did over 200 years ago.



GOOD NEWS!! Wayland ban DEFEATED!! :punk: :clap: Patriots have come out in force!


From GOAL:

Wayland Ban Defeated!
Great news out of Wayland. Thank you to all who took action!

This is a statement from Wayland Rod & Gun Club leadership:

We have just received word that the "PROHIBIT DISCHARGE OF WEAPONS IN WAYLAND" Town Meeting article has been withdrawn. The other article, "NO TOWN SUPPORT FOR WEAPONS DISCHARGE" was previously withdrawn.

Thank you everyone for your efforts during the past 45 days. This could not have happened without your support and effort. While we may never know what caused the withdrawal, it may very well have been the petitioner's increasing awareness of our efforts and seriousness of purpose.

We must, however, remain vigilant. Just because all the articles have been removed from this year's Town Meeting, does not mean that they cannot be put forth again as soon as next year. Let's do all we can to keep this "right" in the public's eye and mind into the foreseeable future. Let's continue to protect all shooting sports for future generations.

Thanks again for all you have done to assure the continuation of our shooting sports.

GOAL would like to thank the leadership of Wayland Rod & Gun Club and all who worked to ensure the articles were defeated.
