From the Lehigh Valley Tea Party Second Amendment Committee

Presenters at a recent “Concealed Carry Seminar” in Luzerne County’s West Wyoming addressed requirements for carrying a concealed weapon and provided information about how to safely do so, in addition to addressing other gun-related topics, according to a dispatch in the timesleader.com.

“Every time we have this type of seminar, we fill the room,” says State Rep. Aaron Kaufer, R-Kingston, who organized the seminar.

District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis explained to more than 70 attendees that the state’s Castle Doctrine is predicated on an individual’s right to be safe in his or her home.

She said the law was quite extensive and provided examples of various scenarios in which a citizen could legally

From the Lehigh Valley Tea Party Second Amendment Committee

Expressing their concerns over the anti-American positions of Democrat Presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, patriots in Pennsylvania have been exercising their Constitutional rights (while they still can) by purchasing record numbers of firearms.

“Every hour during the months of January, February and March, more than 97 people attempted to buy or transfer ownership of a gun in Pennsylvania,” according to a recent pennlive.com report.

According to the state police firearms report, 213,054 background checks for individuals hoping to obtain a firearm were conducted in the first three months of this year, up from 180,938 for the same time period last year. Another 96,417 background checks were done for those seeking concealed

Radical Pa. Judge Tramples Our Constitutional Rights

Share

From the Lehigh Valley Tea Party Second Amendment Committee

A radical judge first nominated to the bench by former president Bill Clinton, has just taken a giant step to try to gut our Constitutional rights, according to an article posted on www.thetrace.org.

In late March, Pennsylvania federal judge Yvette Kane ruled that a gun group, Firearm Owners Against Crime, doesn’t have legal standing to sue to overturn two gun ordinances enacted by Harrisburg. Those laws, which were allowed to stand, bar guns in local parks and prohibit the discharge of firearms in the city, noted the article.

The ruling comes nine months after an appellate court declared unconstitutional a law — Act 192 — that permitted outside groups to sue municipalities

Ol Granny

 

Please don’t get sick of me. I really like telling you all these “ho hum” stories about our life. I like telling you all about the adventures of our Grandkids. I’m sure many of you reading this have stories just as cute. I try to just give the stories that are somewhat political so Berks County Patriots keep giving me the OK to publish them. So far so good.

This past Winter, we went out in sub zero rainy weather to watch – guess who — our youngest grandson at his track and field event. He is a pole vaulter. Wow – you should see him sail over that bar. A sight to behold.

Letter calls DOD on shoe policy for our military

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/04/14/no-shoe-in-new-balance-accuses-dod-balking-on-sneaker-buy-renews-tpp-fight.html Dear Editor,

Due to my present condition I really don’t want to take on another project. I seldom get involved with Federal Legislation because of the rhinos that represent us.

If you think our Men and Women in the Military should be treated as Number 1, please read my comments below.

We all know the contracts will go to those that will end up making these outside the United States.

We all hear stories and know of our active military and veterans and the second class treatment they get and the disrespect. At times I wonder what country am I living in that we could treat our highest as we do.

No one does

Tragedy Underscores The Need For Gun Safety

From the Lehigh Valley 9/12 Project Tea Party Second Amendment Committee

Just as patriots work tirelessly to defend our Second Amendment rights, we must also work hard to educate gun owners and others about the importance of firearm safety.

 

This lesson was driven home in late March, when a 13-year-old Pennsylvania boy died in an accidental shooting in Mount Pleasant, according to a people.com article. The accidental shooter, a 14-year-old friend of the deceased, is now facing criminal charges and has been charged as an adult, according to the report.

 

Criminal homicide and weapons possession charges were filed against the youth, who is a student at Mount Pleasant Area Junior-Senior High School. According to a police spokesman,

U.S. Senator Toomey

From the Lehigh Valley 9/12 Project Tea Party Second Amendment Committee

Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) is running a pro-gun control ad in hopes of attracting Democrat voters in the buildup to Pennsylvania’s April 26 Primary, according to breitbart.com report.

 

“According to the Associated Press, the ad is narrated by gun control proponent Nancy Grogran, a board member of CeasefirePA (known to 2A readers as a subversive organization that, along with the likes of Barack Hussein Obama, is trying to undermine our American rights). The ad is only running in certain areas of the state and appears focused on creating space between Toomey and pro-gun GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump,” notes the breitbart.com update.
