Sir, It may have taken four months to write the original constitution but they obviously didn't get it perfect the first time because of the necessity of all of the amendments. No One can sit down and write a law that can cover every conceivable issue which could be affected by it. That is the perfect argument for someone who is against any change, the proposals don't over everything therefore we should consider none of them. The original constitution was written with negotiations among the various colonies. One colony did not have all the answers so compromise was needed.What about using the spirit of compromise that motivated the Founding Fathers. Mr.Lance's silence is reprehensible.He has no problem accepting contributions from the arms manufacturers.His position has been obvious. Why can't he be honest with the people he represents and tell them exactly where he stands. A.John Blake

Ahhhh. The overused BULLY comment in big capital letters. You must be angry now. If someone does not agree with your view, they are a bully. Who is being a bully when they call someone a 2 year old. Emotions have gotten the best of you and now you have resorted to name calling. As for issues! I have stated before that I am more concerned with rampant spending and the burden that will be placed on future generations due to the actions of our politicians over the years. Gun violence will continue to increase when there are no jobs and people feel desperate. I am not against change per se Mr. Blake, but I am against the erosion of my law abiding rights one nibble at a time. I would like to see all of DC and Elizabeth changed to a view for the future economic safety of this country and county.

Why would you want a pol to "lead" you like Obama leads his lemmings by the nose? Lead yourself. He support the constitution which includes the second amendment. What part of "shall not be infringed" don't you people understand?

I think my job as a pediatrician qualifies as real. I'm using my day off. And I'm doing so because I care for and about the children of America.

For all who need to attend the meeting protest, the location has been changed to a more meaningful location. Go to Elizabeth and Plainfield in front of Gang HQ.
