Washington Times editorial /Second Amendment Foundation

Dear Gun Rights Supporter,

I thought that you would like to read The Washington Times editorial recognizing the most recent and important legal work the Second Amendment Foundation has undertaken to protect and expand our gun rights.

The link to the editorial is here:

As you can see the national media has recognized that the Second Amendment Foundation is the leading organization defending gun rights in the courts.

Since our Supreme Court victory in the McDonald v. Chicago case we have filed scores of lawsuits in Massachusetts, New York, Maryland, New Jersey, Illinois, North Carolina, Washington, D.C., as well as a number of other states.

Your tax-deducible donations have made all this possible.

I have more new cases ready to file but can't commit to them without your continued help and support.

It is very important that all these cases get filed and have decisions rendered before President Obama can stack the federal courts with his anti-gun rights judges. I can't name one judge that Obama has nominated that supports your right to keep and bear arms.

So today, I must ask you to help us again with a generous tax-deducible contribution so that the Foundation can continue the important legal work that we need to undertake.
It will only take a minute to help and you can do it online by going to:

Please help today so that we can continue “Winning Firearms Freedom one Lawsuit at a Time” and stay on the offensive in this important battle to keep and expand our gun rights.
Thank you again for making all of our victories possible!

Sincerely yours,
Alan Gottlieb, Founder
Second Amendment Foundation

Another gun bill, another waste of tax payers money. Threats to withhold states federal welfare handout or the peoples money.
Another lawsuit by the 2nd amendment gang will come and go, all because the Schumer’s of the world can’t grasp one word “infringe”.

Quote: It also requires that nearly all private gun sales involve either firearms dealers or police agencies, which would run the required background check for a fee up to $15.
That’s not going to happen, not at $15.00. As a FFL dealer I charge $30.00. Which includes sales tax, a trigger lock which is required by NYS law. A note from the State police telling the consumer how locks make everything safe and my paperwork time.

The thing police “aren’t” is licensed Firearms dealers. Yet law enforcement agencies all across the United States continue to make purchases from private money & the people’s tax in gun buy back scams.
These people could have as easly gone to a license dealer and sold their firearms.
You’re correct it is a boondoggle of “derams” from the Obama/Brady crowd but without the hype they can’t collect a pay check.

Battle of Oriskany, and spawn the New York State Muzzleloaders Association

Battle of Oriskany, and spawn the New York State Muzzleloaders Association

My third visit was on November 30, 2004. This time I walked and talked with William Lloyd. Bill conceived, organized and publicized the Bicentennial Re-creation of the March of the Tryon County Militia and the Battle of Oriskany on August 4, 5 & 6, 1977. His initial motivation was to illustrate the significance of the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America that guaranteed citizens “the right to keep and bear arms.” He didn’t realize at the time that he would create a once-in-a-lifetime experience for participants and observers, provide national recognition of the significance of the Battle of Oriskany, and spawn the New York State Muzzleloaders Association. He also inspired me to explain it all in my first book, ONE QUARTER MILE TO GO.

I also purchase old lots of equipment/estate sale purchase's wanted.

Micro-stamping,NY ballistics expert says bad idea

From the LiberalPinhead blog:
Senator Schneiderman should listen to firearms experts in his own state. Firearms expert George Krivosta, of the Suffolk County New York crime lab, found that the “vast majority” of micro-stamped characters in the alphanumeric serial number couldn’t be read on “any of the expended cartridge cases generated and examined.”

CoBI$ 10m and no hits

WRGB news video featuring Senator Nozzilio

The news has it correct....NO HITS! But the antis said it would stop crime.
Actually I say its closer to 20 million dollars wasted. Blowing more smoke up our rear ends this time with micro-stamping. The antis are using the same story , different ballistic idea.

Green movement a rip off ,wood burning & charcoal

I work in the HVAC field and I'm a licensed Stationary Engr., I.E. Power plant operator. I see so much waste in the ECO green movement. All most of it is, is our tax dollars funding another study or equipment re-commissioning that should have been installed correctly in the first place.

If you're making lump charcoal from logs, branches and the like I feel it is a waste of heat, especially for cooking. You can make charcoal out of corn cobs which is still a waste of heat but at least you're not using a tree. I'd rather turn a tree into a board, then use the left over’s for heating,cooking or compost.

IMO the best thing to come along are the wood pellets and bricks. They take sawdust or another bio-mass waste, for lack of a better word and use it for fuel. (Industry also use's sawdust for charcoal)
You don't use charcoal in a foundry or forge it doesn't maintain the heat you need. You use Coal and then different types of coal are used for different applications.
I see guys cutting down trees all summer long from hunting property to use as heat in their homes. I tell them, why don't you buy a ton of coal? Save your trees for lumber. They reply the trees are free. Oh really, your time & the saw alone are worth more than the price of a ton of coal, year after year.
I suppose if you ran a meat smoking process you could use the excess heat from the charcoal to heat water for some sort of hydronics heat letting the smoke cure your product.
Then you'd have an excuse for the charcoal as it would be a by-product of 2 or 3 processes.

You have to get as much work as possible out of a product/process as possible to make it cost effective. Lump charcoal doesn’t do that.

Yes I know my wife told me duck is $2.99 a per pound at Aldi’s. I could have purchased 50 for what I have in the 10 ah 7 left that the fox hasn’t killed off yet.
 Well that is unless that is you’re doing it for fun then it a hobby. $$$
