Stop S. 2358

 

This was made aware to us at the NCOM convention. It attempts to redefine

street gangs in a way that could be made to include any of us. Let your

senator know that we oppose this bill. It is so broad that the feds could

make it apply to anything the want.

Actually, the way I read that if you are not commiting crimes, then although you are a "gang" of sorts, you would not be a criminal street gang. However, I would need to read more of the proposed law to get a better idea. I could see that with loose definitions that some asshole cop could write three tickets for riders in the group and thus cross the three gang crimes to give them the excuse to hassle you guys.

 

But, its just better to stop the government early before these peopel can do any damage.
