Chairman's Comments


 As I start to write this, I am on a plane back home from Atlanta, Georgia. While there today, Saturday, March 24th, I decided to go to the Coca-Cola museum in downtown Atlanta. I got there about 10:30 and was amazed at how congested the traffic was downtown. As I got within six or seven blocks of the museum, I was amazed at all the foot traffic, all going one way toward the museum. I thought, “All these people can’t be going there.” I was both right and wrong: they were going there—actually to the huge field next to it—and the reason was soon evident.

They were going to the Atlanta installment of the anti-gun marches that happened all through the country. I was shocked to see the thousands upon thousands of marchers going there. I couldn’t have imagined that they could have gotten even ten percent of the people that they got to go there. They had booths set up on the sidewalks to sign people up to vote. This was an extremely well-orchestrated event in Atlanta.  More
