I am copying this from another site in hopes to spread the word on short notice... Seems them politicians didn't want much public turnout...

****************FOR WIDEST POSSIBLE DISTRIBUTION**********************

When legislators do not want people to show up and testify at Hearings, they post the Notice of Hearing late in the day on Friday for a Monday Hearing.

That is exactly what has happened on HB668, the College-Carry Bill.

The Notice went up today for a Hearing in front of the SENATE JUDICIARY AND CIVIL AND CRIMINAL JURISPRUDENCE Committee. The Hearing on HB688 will be Monday, 05/11/2009 at 6:00 PM OR UPON ADJOURNMENT in the Senate Lounge. EXECUTIVE SESSION MAY OR MAY NOT FOLLOW.

The Senators do not want us to be there.

WE NEED TO TURN OUT IN FORCE!!!

The intent of the Senate is to pass a Senate Committee Substitute (SCS) for HB668 with College Carry, the improved Castle Doctrine language, and the Open Carry language *ALL* stripped out, leaving only the age change from 23 to 21 for ccw permit holders left in.

They are under the mistaken impression that they can do this and then loudly proclaim, "We Passed a Pro-Gun Bill!" all while patting themselves on the back and congratulating each other and expecting us to be grateful.

They expect us to forget that the Senate failed us on three out of four very important issues.

After checking all my sources in the Executive Branch and the media: There is *absolutely no indication* the Governor would Veto the full strength HB668 as it is now written.

Failure to pass the House version of HB668 lies at the Senate's feet.

Please Contact your Senator and the members of the Judiciary Committee at their District Office this weekend and in the Capitol Office on Monday.

To Find your Senator see:

For contact info for the members of the Judiciary Committee see:

The SENATE JUDICIARY AND CIVIL AND CRIMINAL JURISPRUDENCE Committee is made up of:

MEMBERS:

Matt Bartle, 8th, Chairman
Jack Goodman, 29th, Vice-Chairman
Jane Cunningham, 7th
Rob Mayer, 25th
Kurt Schaefer, 19th
Jolie Justus, 10th
Jeff Smith, 4th

These folks especially need to hear from us - via email, faxes and phone calls.

The message to the Senators is: *"We are in favor of HB668 as passed out of the House, but OPPOSED if Amended or Substituted in the Senate committee!"*

BOOTS ON THE GROUND CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE MONDAY NIGHT!

If you care about HB668, you must be in the Capitol Monday night.

We need people there to fill out Witness Forms and provide written testimony with the above message spelled out in large letters in RED INK!

Please plan on meeting in the Third Floor Senate Hall outside the Senate Lounge by 5:30 or as soon as you can get there.

Several thousand contacts by phone, fax and email and

YOUR PRESENCE CAN CHANGE THE OUTCOME OF THE HEARING.

Be Safe,
Tim Oliver
Best of luck MO students and residents!
