I just returned from the House Judiciary Subcommittee A meeting. As reported previously, the Republican Party lived up to my expectations on meaningful 2nd amendment and immigration reform legislation today.
After a briefing by Glen Bradley concerning H241, a vote was taken on this 2nd amendment legislation but the NAY vote was louder than the AYE vote so Chairman Blust ruled that the legislation failed. No one on the committee would stand up and ask for division so that an individual accounting could be made.
The video of this proceeding and the followup interview with Rep. Bradley is shown below.
H36 was also on the agenda to make E-verify mandatory for companies who have state contracts. This legislation had a tie vote so it also failed. I will be releasing video of this vote also. We are working on verifying the Republicans who voted against this bill.
I hope that the GOP convention in Wilmington will have pleasant weather this weekend because it is about to get HOT in Raleigh.
