Re: No More Hobby Paints for Sale in CA???

Sorry you are having a problem with modeling supplies. Wonder how long it
will be before you can no longer buy anything in California. Write to Diane
Feinstein and the Democratic Party leader for California. Actually write to
any friendly Democrat you voted for since THEY are the ones who set the
rules making you are complaining about in process. It is called the law of
unintended consequences.
