Vote Today!

Today is primary day, remember to go out and vote.

Most of my ballot was “write in” “write in” “write in”, as there were not many names on my party’s ballot. This is an odd number year. But the school board members were there, and that’s where I was looking.

It usually isn’t hard to figure out which school board members you want in, and which you want out. It does require going through a couple back issues of the local newspaper (usually not many back issues before you figure out who is who) or sitting through just about 1 school board meeting will let you know right away which ones need swapped out.

Anti-gun vote today

The second amendment and gun owners scored a victory today. The US Senate rejected a proposed law to increase paper work and restrict firearm transfers between friends and family members.

Perhaps more importantly this sends a signal to the leadership of our nation that it is time to start enforcing the laws that already exist.

This debate is likely to resurface again in the near future. Those trying to layer more control on law abiding citizens are not going to give up. If you haven’t already, please contact your Senator and let them know that they are sworn to uphold the Constitution, Second Amendment and all.

Gun Control in the Nation

For those that aren’t aware, gun control is the topic on the congressional floor again.

Reid and his cronies are working hard to pass off this as a “reasonable” set of restrictions, and rushing like mad to try and get it passed before anyone notices the difference.

The truth of the matter is that the laws are not intended to limit harm anywhere, the laws they are debating are geared to destroy inheritance of firearms, passage of firearms from father to son, and in general add to the bureaucratic mess so that more law abiding citizens just give up trying to legally possess firearms.

Toomey’s (one of PA two senators) office is saying he is waiting to hear from constituents. Let him hear YOUR opinion! Call him at 855-552-1831.

Casey is anxious to win political favors, and if the cost is on firearm owners, so be it. Let him know that he cannot side with the gun control crowd and expect to win his next election. He can be reached at: 202-224-6324

Both of these gentlemen can be called in less than 5 minutes, and that call weighs heavily in how they will vote, and how they will broadcast their position to other senators.

Give them both a call, and help us avoid more legislation such as New York State has already passed this year.

Postage Due

Apparently I sent out a batch of Pennswoods.net T-Shirts without sufficient postage due.

The postage meter at Atlantic Broadband was shorting the weight of the packages, and wedidn’t’ apply enough postage. Some of them came back to us and we corrected the postage, though the bag still had “postage due” stamped on it.

If you had to pay to receive a t-shirt from me, please contact me and let me fix it. classifieds@pennswoods.net

My apologies for that.

Open Carry Walk in Brookville March 17

On Sunday March 17, 2013 there will be an open carry walk on Main st in Brookville, PA. Starting at 1 pm and followed by a meet and greet at the Pinecreek Firehall where they will have hotdogs, hamburgers, French fries, and drinks available for purchase. This is a peaceful gathering of people to show their support of their second amendment rights and to show that firearms are not and not all firearm owners are scary, dangerous, or a threat.

For more information, visit the group’s Facebook event page: http://www.facebook.com/events/333986836702525

services restored

As of approximately 2pm yesterday password changes and new account creation were restored. If you’ve been waiting on an account for more than 24 hours and still haven’t received an activation email, please contact me.

It’s been just about 24 hours, and I see new accounts being created, and I’m not hearing about problems with creating new accounts at this point, so I’m going to take that as confirmation that things are working as expected again.

Thanks,
Chris
