I am trying to lose weight, cutting out sugar and carbs, eating healthier. And my scale

Kept showing me gaining weight. Shared my concern with my husband. Being high tech, he changed the batteries in the scale. Yup, lost 5 pounds. So I guess I will just change the batteries in the scale every day, so I can lose 5 pounds a day.

Easy peasy.

I just read that the executive board of the county I live in wants to make it a sanctuary

County for the second amendment. You know, so no one will try to take guns from gun owners. I live in Brown County WI.

I was raised in a hunting family, and have family and friends who hunt and shoot competitively, and as long as people are responsible, and licensed, I have no problem with gun ownership.

On the other hand I am a grandmother and sickened by the fact my grandson has to go through drills and lockdowns. I have also been the victim of armed robbery in my early years in restaurant management. I lived in Texas at the time and we had identifying photos of various guns and height markers on the front door.

I was just wondering if anyone would like to call it email to the how it being a sanctuary county would fit in on your decision to say, go to a packers game. Or to visit and spend money on this beautiful but very red part of the state. Nice to know that Brown County protects its gun owners. But will it protect its citizens or the tourists who come to the area for games, festivals, concerts. I am hoping this would make an impact.

If just 5 or 10 or a hundred call and let them know this would impact their travel to this part of the country, you would make a fellow DUer happy.

I am sorry I don't know how to post an article, I got it off the internet from WGBA Green Bay, the local NBC affiliate.

I am against gun rights sanctuaries, don't think there is a need for them up here, most feel the way I do from both parties. and I am tired of WI republicans and what they have done to a once blue state. And I am afraid of what it will attract to this area.

I hope it is ok that I am asking this, but I figure nothing ventured nothing gained. I can add the info if it is ok by DU rules, not sure if allowed.

Somehow the shootings and the irresponsibility of the republicans and the NRA needs to be addressed. Maybe a little grass roots would help.
