A brief follow up message from Neal after the 10/21/2011 meet.

I want to thank everyone who attended the meet. It is exciting to see the group evolving. We had a head count right around 100 people. There was a lot of good energy. Unfortunately, there is one negative topic that I must address.

A non-member was supposed to have done a presentation on an organization that I am a life member of, Gun Owners Of America. His presentation about GOA turned into a 10 minute rant, mostly about hating Muslims. I want to offer my deepest apology to the group for not putting a stop to his speech much sooner. His hate rant had NOTHING to do with the organization he said he represented. I would have never knowingly given him the floor to talk about religious intolerance. 


I do value the right of free speech and believe there should be no limits to free speech. However, our meetings will not be a place for people to sound off on their hate. Let me be clear that ALL ethnicities are welcome at our events.

I look forward to learning from, getting to know and training with the group in the future.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
