Coalition To Stop Gun Violence Spotlights Victoria Steele's Bill

Posted By on Tue, Feb 4, 2014 at 11:00 AM

The Facebook page for the national Coalition To Stop Gun Violence featured Victoria Steele's bill to make parents responsible if they leave a gun lying around and their children use it to harm someone.

What a concept, huh? You'd think a civilized society would have had this on the books decades ago.

So far, 639 Likes and 36 Comments.

Meanwhile, the verbal battle rages over the Steele/Orr/Friese matchup in LD-9 — 14 comments so far on my post, Victoria Steele’s Very Good Day, and when the Star's Tim Steller shared the post on FB, it garnered 36 Comments and counting.

BTW, Jim Nintzel has been schooling me as I begin my posting here on The Range — appreciate it, Jim — and he says I need to tell readers where state Legislative District 9 is. It dips as far south as Speedway, then moves up through the Foothills to Casas Adobes, stopping just short (I'm pretty sure) of Oro Valley and Marana. It has a slight Democratic edge, making it a possible all-Democratic LD, but as Ethan Orr has demonstrated, a Republican can get elected as well. Democratic candidate Randy Friese makes it a three way race for the two House spots. It's a race to watch.
