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.
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.
Happy Easter to one and all! I hope the weekend is a blessed one for every one of us.
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. firstname.lastname@example.org
My apologies for that.
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.

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.
Last two nights I’ve had people indicate that they are having some pages error out. I think generally hitting reload a couple times is doing the trick, but I’m looking into it.
I’m also having a separate issue with the registration server. At this time I am unable to accept new signups, and I cannot approve existing signups. I’m working to resolve this as quickly as I am able to do so.
Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope everyone takes a moment to spend with a loved one today. For those out there who are single at the moment, this is a good time to reconnect with a friend or family member you haven’t spoken to in a while.
Happy Groundhog’s Day!
According to Punxy Phil we’re going to see an early spring.
Among the things Obama called for in his message just a few minutes ago, he wants a 10 round magazine cap, increased prosecution for crimes (straw purchases in particular), he wants his buddy (B. Todd Jones) to be confirmed as ATF director.
Oh, and he wants to re-instate the 1994 assault weapons ban.
No armed guards to protect the schools. Apparently that is only good enough for politician’s kids.
No re-vamping of the ATF to figure out how things like Fast & Furious can happen, and no plans to fix it.
Call your representatives. The political shell game is still in full swing.
