Cops on the Hill:   Stories from the weeks of June 17 & 24, 2022

The Good, The Bad and the Ugly:


The Bad:  I had only one presentation the first two weeks back from holidays.


The Good:   The one meeting was with the chief legal counsel to Majority Leader Schumer and her assistant.  Great 30-minute exchange on a variety of topics.  I met with Minority Leader McConnel’s counsel about  a year ago.


The Ugly:  It is my feeling/intuition that there will be no votes on drug law reform during this Congress, no hearings, nada.  Dem Leadership wants a ‘legalization of MJ’ bill with lots of extra goodies that  violate the 10th Amendment  which guarantees it will never pass.


I sent out over 100 meeting requests and had one response…I am simply going to have to wait the Congress is open to the public, scheduled by Nancy for early September 2022.  Yes, going into an office and asking to see the legislative aide is successful enough to make a good day’s effort. (once I can pester the guy/gal at the reception desk).


Something useful:  I was asked by Grover Norquist to present on why US states should adopt Red Flag Laws this week.  It was a packed room with 150+ attendees. The easiest take aways were; Law Enforcement is leading the charge for this and the NRA could not cite one egregious case where a citizen had their guns removed unjustly.

* Consider being a member of COP at $40 or more per year. All contributions are tax-deductible. 40 dollars buys all the copy paper COP uses in one year. Law Enforcement’s voice in opposition to current policy is vital on the Hill to achieve a repeal of federal drug prohibition. COP provides that voice. www.citizensopposingprohibition.org
