PA GOP AD FACT CHECK:

A CeaseFirePA Ad Tells Tragic Story, Facts Regarding Connection To Florida Reciprocity Agreemen Don’t Hold Water

Republican Party of Pennsylvania Spokesman Mike Barley released the following statement regarding the recent CeaseFirePA advertisement: 

The event depicted in the recent CeaseFire PA ad is tragic and our heartfelt wishes, thoughts and prayers go out to the Hacke family.

That being said, the facts of the ad regarding the Florida reciprocity agreement and this case are not accurate.  This tragic event took place in 1997, nearly five years before a reciprocity agreement was struck between our Commonwealth and the state of Florida. Read more

Firearms Preemption Bill Stalled in House

The Pennsylvania House of Representatives recessed until next week without acting on House Bill 2011, (http://www.legis.state.pa.us/CFDOCS/Legis/PN/Public/btCheck.cfm?txtType=PDF&sessYr=2013&sessInd=0&billBody=H&billTyp=B&billNbr=2011&pn=2987) critical firearms preemption legislation.

Sponsored by state Representative Mark Keller (R-86), HB 2011 would strengthen Pennsylvania’s firearms preemption statute to further ensure that firearm and ammunition laws are consistent throughout the state.  To date, nearly fifty municipalities have enacted and enforce illegal gun control ordinances including Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Lancaster, Reading and the state capital of Harrisburg.  Enough is enough.                                                               Read more

California Anti-Gun State Senator Is A Gun Trafficker


Criminal charges, including conspiracy to traffic firearms, have been brought against CA anti-gun State Senator Leland Yee.

If these allegations are true, Sen. Yee is easily the biggest hypocrite on gun control to walk the halls of the capitol in Sacramento, if not the entire United States.

Hypocrisy and lies are nothing new to the anti-gun crowd. We've seen similar cases against members of Mayor's Against Illegal Guns but nothing as major as these allegations.

Yee is charged with conspiracy to traffic in firearms without a license and to illegally import firearms, as well as six counts of scheming to defraud citizens of honest services. Each corruption count is punishable by up to 20 years in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000, while the gun-trafficking count is punishable by up to five years and $250,000.     Read more

Mentored Youth Fishing Days Rescheduled to May 10 

The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) announced today that it has rescheduled its two Mentored Youth Fishing Days into one statewide date on May 10 because most of the waters where the events will be held remain covered in ice and aren’t expected to completely thaw in time. 

The days were originally scheduled for March 22 and April 5.  Read more

NJ AG OPPOSES SUPREME COURT REVIEW OF NJ CARRY LAW  

The New Jersey Attorney General filed a brief in the Drake right to carry case, urging the U.S. Supreme Court not to take the case.  Drake is the pending federal challenge to New Jersey’s unconstitutional carry law, brought by the Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs (ANJRPC) and the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF), who have asked the Supreme Court to hear the case.

At the heart of the lawsuit is the idea that citizens should not have to prove “need” to exercise a fundamental Constitutional right.  New Jersey’s “justifiable need” standard requires the applicant to provide evidence of prior attacks or threats before a carry permit is issued by a judge ” a virtually impossible standard for most people to meet.”

Articles of Interest From John C. Street

Basic training by John C. Street 

The basis for a great many of the skills I use today in my soirees into the back-of-beyond came directly from my father, not so much through verbal instruction but through his willing to spend time with me.  Slow learner that I am, I can’t imagine where I’d be today without his patient tutelage.  Read more
