NEW MEXICO TRAPPERS Comments TO THE USFW on Removing the Gray Wolf as an endangered species


December 17, 2013

 Subject: Comments on Removing the Gray Wolf (Canis lupus) from the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Maintaining Protections for the Mexican Wolf (Canis lupus baileyi) by listing it as Endangered. 
 
Docket#FWS-HQ-ES-2013-0073
 
On behalf of the New Mexico Trappers Association (NMTA) and its membership, we submit the following comments on the proposals by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to (1) remove the gray wolf from the list of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and (2) maintain protections for the Mexican gray wolf by uplisting it as an endangered subspecies.  New Mexico trappers will be directly impacted by these proposed changes as they have been through a frivolous  lawsuit in the past.  Furthermore, proposed restrictions on trapping are unwarranted and unjustifiable. 
 
NMTA is in full support of delisting the gray wolf because gray wolf recovery have exceeded their recovery goals and states have the unique ability to manage this species best. After numerous court battles and arguments over the science, this species has proven a listing is no longer warranted. The ESA for this species, worked.

NMTA is not in favor of elevating the status of the Mexican wolf  beyond that of a non-essential experimental population. It is our belief that science shows a lack of genetic diversity, these wolves cannot be recovered without severe interaction by man and that this species is just not capable of recovery in the wild. The Service tells us that the primary purpose of the Mexican wolf captive breeding program is to supply wolves for reestablishing Mexican wolves into the wild. It is strange that such a program would continue knowing that when these captive bred wolves are released, they are doomed; they have not been able to reestablish themselves in the wild after years of trying and millions of taxpayer dollars being spent .  In addition, the proposal provides no compelling evidence that the suggested changes will somehow  now enable the wolves to become reestablished.  The Service should not be making taxonomic changes at this time.  

Sincerely:
Thomas D. McDowell, Ph.D.

Maverick Ammunition announces move - Laramie Boomerang Online

Maverick Ammunition announces move


A second Colorado-based company is moving to Laramie.

Maverick Ammuniation, also known as Ammo Kan, announced Tuesday it will be moving from Littleton, Colo., to the Gem City.

Fort Collins, Colo.,-based HiViz Shooting Systems, which manufactures fiber optic sights and recoil pads for firearms, announced plans to move to Laramie last spring. Last week, the Laramie City Council approved a design contract with Groathouse Construction Inc. for the new HiViz headquarters at the Laramie River Business Park II.

Maverick Ammunition manufactures target-grade ammunition and ammunition for hunting. It also manufactures tactical-grade ammunition for use in law enforcement. The company’s product line includes well-known shooting sport brands such as Hornady, Nosler, Lake City and Berry’s, according to a statement released by Maverick Ammunition CEO Curt Perry.

The company is expected to employ more than 50 people. There will be full-time and part-time positions, ranging from entry-level manufacturing, to clerical and bookkeeping, to experienced warehouse and distribution managers, Perry wrote.

“This is an exciting time for all of us as we look forward to making Laramie our lifetime home,” he said.

Perry wrote Maverick Ammunition will accept employment applications from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Dec. 18. Interviews are slated to begin at noon. He also wrote that the company expects to manufacture almost 2 million rounds of ammunition per week during the second half of 2014.

Dan Furphy, president and CEO of the Laramie Economic Development Corporation and the Laramie Area Chamber of Commerce, said Maverick Ammunition leased a building in the Riverwalk Commerce Center, 575 Snowy Range Road.

“This adds to our economic diversification,” he said. “Having a manufacturing company in town allows other important opportunities for our citizens.”

Furphy said Perry contacted him about relocating to Laramie shortly after Colorado passed gun control legislation. He also believes Laramie’s proximity to Medicine Bow National Forest played a role in Perry’s decision.

“I think part of it is that Laramie offers unique outdoor recreational opportunities,” he said.

EPA decision to close last US lead smelter will NOT affect ammunition supply or cost according to NSSF

EPA decision to close last US lead smelter will NOT affect ammunition supply or cost according to NSSF

There has been a great deal of discussion on the NMLRA Facebook page and on the internet in general about the EPA's recent decision to close to nation's last lead smelter and how this will affect prices and availability.  However, Lawrence Keane, senior vice president and general counsel for the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), which represents the ammunitions and firearms industry advises that there is no need for alarm.

“Manufacturers use recycled lead to make ammunition. They don’t buy from smelters,” Mr. Keane said. “The EPA closing, which has been in the works for a while, will have no impact on production, supply or cost to the consumers.”

You're already a criminal, you just haven't been arrested yet! bpb1999 Wayne Weekly

"There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is to crack down on criminals. When there aren't enough criminals,one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws."
 Ayn Rand 1905-1982

"We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion; the stage where government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force."
Ayn Rand 1905-1982

Manhattan man in court for fishing without license, resisting arrest | KRTV.com | Great Falls, Montana

You'd think the Judge would have dismissed the case.


Manhattan man in court for fishing without license, resisting arrest | KRTV.com | Great Falls, Montana

MANHATTAN - It was a packed courtroom on Tuesday for the hearing of Ernie Tertelgte, a Manhattan man who says he's being wrongly prosecuted for trying to feed himself.
Tertelgte, 52 years old, was arrested on Monday and is accused of fishing without a license and then resisting arrest.

He appeared before the judge via video from the Gallatin County Detention Center, and it was standing room only more than a dozen friends and family members filled the small courtroom.
Tertelgte appeared subdued and respectful before the Justice of the Peace during Tuesday's court session, which went very differently than his court appearance earlier this month, where Tertelgte and Three Forks City Judge Wanda Drusch got into a heated exchange.
Terteltge argued that the court did not have the authority to charge him, citing "natural law."
He told the judge, "You are trying to create a fictitious, fraudulent action." He continued, "I am the living man, protected by natural law."
He then yelled, "Do not tell me to shut up! I am the living, natural man, and my voice will be heard!"
Terteltge then pointed at the flag and said, "That is the Jolly Roger, that thing you call the American flag with the golf fringe around it is the Jolly Roger, and you are acting as one of its privateers!"
When the judge noted that he had pleaded not guilty, Terteltge countered, "I never plead, animals plead, sounds like baaaa, oink oink."
The back and forth exchange continued for a few more moments, and the hearing ended after both the judge and the defendant walked out.
This time, extra law enforcement officers were in court Tuesday and the proceedings happened without any outbursts.
A friend of Tertelgte's told us that he and the others came to court to enforce the Constitution.
William Wolf said, "It's we the people that run this and rule this country, not we the courts, not we the government, and if the people don't start standing up for themselves and for each other, we are going to continue being subjects of this government."
Justice Adams set Tertelgte's bond at $500 and his next court hearing is scheduled for January.

Buffalo's Carl Paladio wants to cull the old RINO's from the herd!


To:       New York State Republicans and Conservatives
From:  Carl Paladino
Date:   November 18, 2013
Re:      New York State Republican Party and 2014 Elections
 
On Friday I spoke with both Ken Lovett of the N.Y. Daily News and Rob Astorino and explained to each of them my current position on New York State Republican politics.  This morning Ken Lovett wrote an article interpreted by the pretenders of the Republican establishment that I have weakened in my position. 

Not true.

The facts are as follows:

1.    The upstate Republican rank and file are agitated and frustrated at not being represented by their valueless elected Republican legislators who also fail to provide an opposition to the Cuomo/Silver machine.  They no longer want gutless RINO (Republican in Name Only) leaders making decisions for them.  They want representation that promotes their beliefs but instead are given spineless RINOs who share no common values.  The national and state Republican establishment gave us Mitt Romney, a loser who was fool enough to side with the 1% against the 99%.  Also, in 2010 they tried to deny me the opportunity to speak at the Convention and then gave us Rick Lazio.  The rank and file spoke clearly in the primary, but the establishment laid down in the general election.

 BPB NOTE it was Dean Skelos that sold out firearms owner's on the firearms ban!
 
2.    This coming year the rank and file will choose who they want to be their candidates for statewide office.  Republican establishment leadership will no longer shove RINOs down their throats.  I intend to change the Republican Party as we have known it with the voluntary or forced resignation of previously identified RINO County Chairs like Vinny Reda, in Rockland County, as well as Dean Skelos as Majority Leader of the Senate and Brian Kolb as the Minority Leader of the Assembly.  Their neglect of the values of those who put them in office and failure to provide legitimate opposition to the State's Democratic Party machine is unforgivable.  Without formidable opposition, the Democrats produce criminal legislators and liberal regressive legislation at an alarming rate.
 
The coercion to leave office will come when Republican and Conservative State and County leaders call on their Republican Senators and Assemblymen to send Skelos and Kolb packing with the threat of denying endorsements if they don't cooperate.  If they think I'm bluffing and are willing to risk the survival of the party, it only confirms their spineless hypocrisy.  My "to go" bag is packed.

 Only when and if the phonies are expelled from their leadership roles and the Republican Party rank and file back a moderate Gubernatorial candidate acceptable to them, with proper financing and the intestinal fortitude to fight the good fight, will I back off.  I've told Rob Astorino and say here to Steve McLaughlin, Ed Cox and any others who have thoughts of running for Governor to hit the road and tell the rank and file who you are and what you will do.  While you are at it, encourage the Republican Legislative caucuses to shed their leadership.

 If this does not happen, I will ask the Conservative Party for its endorsement and give it the opportunity to lead rank-and-file Republicans to a place where RINOs are not welcome, the status quo is unacceptable and substantive conservative values are not to be played with.

It's time for party leadership at every level to respect those who put them in office, and to lead, follow or get out of the way.

Browning 7mm A-bolt used looks rough, shoots great!

You are purchasing a well used 7mm A-Bolt.
 I don't have any history on it other than it was neglected. The bore is nice and trigger is light and crisp. Shoots great , she just looks ugly.
I took 360 grit and oil to the barrel & magazine to see how deep the corrosion when under the old oil and crud. I figure this was a truck gun. A good Parkerizing and a little wood work and you'll have a pretty firearm. And we all know the better they look, the better they shoot.
 Comes with a Bushnell 3x9 model unknown.
Price includes shipping to your FFL

New York six constitutional amendments Nov 5th


On November 5, voters across the state will be asked to pass or defeat six constitutional amendments appearing on this year’s ballot.  Below is the NYS Conservative Party’s position on each. I fully concur with their stance on each proposition.
-Carl Paladino


Most of the summaries are straight forward, however the most controversial proposal, asking voters to approve or disapprove casino gambling (Proposal #1), is written to suggest that approval will lower your taxes and provide more money to your schools. It is permitted to present a one-sided view; however, it certainly is deceptive since the language in the Bill passed by the Legislature does not include the benefits the proposal suggests the voters will receive if approved.

The New York State Conservative Party recommends a NO vote on Proposal #1.
For Proposal #2, we recommend a YES vote; Proposal #3 a NO vote, Proposal #4 a YES vote, Proposal #5 a YES vote and Proposal #6 (raising the retirement age of Judges) a NO vote.

Our positions are stated in the following 4-page synopsis of the 6-ballot proposals for 2013.


 Synopsis is as follows:

 Conservative Party Positions on 2013 Statewide Ballot Questions

PROPOSAL NUMBER ONE, AN AMENDMENT TO AUTHORIZE CASINO GAMING

The Conservative Party recommends a NO vote on Proposal Number One.

 

Authorizing Casino Gaming

The proposed amendment to section 9 of article 1 of the Constitution would allow the Legislature to authorize up to seven casinos in New York State for the legislated purposes of promoting job growth, increasing aid to schools, and permitting local governments to lower property taxes through revenues generated. Shall the amendment be approved?

The Conservative Party of New York State, since its inception in 1962, has promoted job growth through lower taxes, encouraged localities to lower taxes and believe that schools should provide a solid education for our youth. The Conservative Party has been consistent in its Legislative Program calling for the need to reduce taxes and promote job growth and has stressed if we fail to provide jobs and remain a high tax state, we will lose our citizens to states with less taxes. The proposed amendment, while it paints a rosy picture, will not accomplish the stated goal. Casino Gambling will produce new problems as evidenced in the areas where casinos are currently located. In 1966, the Legislature told New York citizens, if they approved the Lottery, their school taxes would be reduced. Every year school taxes go up, despite the millions people spend on lottery tickets. It is time to close the money spigot that gives the legislature more money to spend.

 

 

PROPOSAL NUMBER TWO, AN AMENDMENT TO ALLOW ADDITIONAL SERVICE CREDITS TO DISABLED VETERANS

The Conservative Party recommends a YES vote on Proposal Number Two.

 

Additional Civil Service Credit for Veterans with Disabilities Certified Post-Appointment

The proposed amendment to section 6 of article 5 of the Constitution would entitle a veteran who has received civil service credit for a civil service appointment or promotion and subsequently is certified as disabled to additional civil service credit at a subsequent appointment or promotion. Shall the proposed amendment be approved?

The Conservative Party of New York State holds our disabled veterans in the highest regard and is cognizant of the sacrifices made in the name of freedom for their fellow citizens.

 

PROPOSAL NUMBER THREE, AN AMENDMENT TO EXCLUDE CERTAIN INDEBTEDNESS

The Conservative Party recommends a NO vote on Proposal Number Three.
Exclusion of Indebtedness Contracted for Sewage Facilities

The proposed amendment to Article 8, section 5 of the Constitution would extend for ten years, until January 1, 2024, the authority of counties, cities, towns, and villages to exclude from their constitutional debt limits indebtedness contracted for the construction or reconstruction of sewage facilities. Shall the proposed amendment be approved?

This proposal first went into effect on January 1, 1962 and has been renewed repeatedly since then. The Conservative Party does not approve of government entities separating out certain debts from their constitutional debt limit as it does not give a true picture to its citizens as to the total indebtedness of the locality, therefore we cannot support this proposal.

 

PROPOSAL NUMBER FOUR, AN AMENDMENT TO SETTLE DISPUTED TITLE

IN FOREST PRESERVE

The Conservative Party recommends a YES vote on Proposal Number Four.
Settling Disputed Title in the Forest Preserve

The proposed amendment to section 1 of article 14 of the Constitution would authorize the Legislature to settle longstanding disputes between the State and private entities over ownership of certain parcels of land in the town of Long Lake, Hamilton County. In exchange for giving up its claim to disputed parcels, the State would get land to be incorporated into the forest preserve that would benefit the forest preserve more than the disputed parcels currently do. Shall the proposed amendment be approved?

The State Constitution generally forbids the lease, sale, exchange, or taking of any forest preserve land. The proposed amendment would allow the Legislature to settle 100-year-old disputes between the State and private parties over ownership of certain parcels of land in the forest preserve by giving up the State's claim to disputed parcels. In exchange, the State would get land to be incorporated into the forest preserve. The land exchange would occur only if the Legislature determines that the land to be conveyed to the State would benefit the forest preserve more than the disputed parcels do.

 

PROPOSAL NUMBER FIVE, AN AMENDMENT TO EXCHANGE LAND

TO NYCO MINERALS, INC.

The Conservative Party recommends a YES vote on Proposal Number Five.


In Relation to a Land Exchange in the State Forest Preserve with NYCO Minerals, Inc.

The proposed amendment to section 1 of article 14 of the Constitution would authorize the Legislature to convey forest preserve land located in the town of Lewis, Essex County, to NYCO Minerals, a private company that plans on expanding an existing mine that adjoins the forest preserve land. In exchange, NYCO Minerals would give the State at least the same amount of land of at least the same value, with a minimum assessed value of $1 million, to be added to the forest preserve. When NYCO Minerals finishes mining, it would restore the condition of the land and return it to the forest preserve. Shall the proposed amendment be approved?

As with proposal number four, the State Constitution generally forbids the lease, sale, exchange, or taking of any forest preserve land. NYCO Minerals is a producer of wollastonite, a mineral that has industrial importance worldwide. In the United States, wollastonite is mined in Willsboro, New York and Gouverneur, New York. This proposed amendment would allow NYCO Minerals to expand and explore for the mineral, keep people employed and still protect the forest preserve.

 
FORM OF SUBMISSION OF PROPOSAL NUMBER SIX, AN AMENDMENT INCREASING THE RETIREMENT AGE OF JUDGES

The Conservative Party recommends a NO vote on Proposal Number Six.


Increasing the Age until which Certain State Judges Can Serve

The proposed amendment to the Constitution, amending sections 2 and 25 of article 6, would increase the maximum age until which certain state judges may serve as follows: (a) a Justice of the Supreme Court would be eligible for five additional two-year terms after the present retirement age of 70, instead of the three such terms currently authorized; and (b) a Judge of the Court of Appeals who reaches the age of 70 while in office would be permitted to remain in service on the Court for up to 10 years beyond the present retirement age of 70 in order to complete the term to which that Judge was appointed. Shall the proposed amendment be approved?

(Additional information on other side)

 
Currently a Justice of the Supreme Court is eligible for three additional two-year terms after the present retirement age of 70, this proposal would allow them to serve an additional 4 years while also allowing a Judge on the Court of Appeals to remain in service for up to 10 additional years. The Conservative Party acknowledges that citizens are living longer and healthier lives; however, there is no imperative need to keep judges on the bench for extended terms while electing new Supreme Court Judges. A Court of Appeals Judge is appointed and we strongly believe the citizens should elect all judges and be responsible to the citizens, therefore we reject extended the term of the Members of the Court of Appeals.

 

CPNYS POSITIONS ON 2013 BALLOT PROPOSALS:


PROPOSAL #1 – NO

PROPOSAL #2 – YES

PROPOSAL #3 – NO

PROPOSAL #4 – YES

PROPOSAL #5 – YES

PROPOSAL #6 – NO

No Discounts and No Apologies, Just Send Cash

No discounts and no apologies, just send cash

Feel free to pass this on:


No discounts and no apologies, just send cash
I don't know about Wal-Marts policy. I do know if you want a box of cartridges from me come Jan 15 2014 it will cost you $10.00 for the NICS check. That is if NICS will accept a NICS for ammo purchases. See, I can't find that section on my NICS form and the "other" block on the 4473 is for serial numbered receivers & the like.
My guesstamate is the state is waiting for sportsmen to tell the state how to do it. Like sportsmen have done so many other times in the past. You know, how there always seems to be a few select individuals who feel another infringement isn't so bad that they can give up just this one time because they feel that is a good compromise.
Which brings me to a line I use to use at meetings; "Sportsmen have compromised themselves out of the hunting, fishing & trapping".

Come this November many firearms owners will, well maybe; flock to the polls to elect all those politicians that signed onto the "Repeal Law" declarations or as I call it the paper tiger firearms ban repeal.
Oddly enough in 30 plus years of meetings, Letters, gun shows I'm still trying to remember where or how all these new supporters sprang from out of thin air. I can say if you have the time visit MAG. That's Mayor Bloomberg's anti gun web site . Look up all those local politicians who have signed the paper tiger & see if you can match any up with the good Mayor's firearms ban-wagon.
I'll say this again to control Albany you have to control the local political body. Remove the lifers from local politics and then you can control Albany.
I ask you to make a mental or written note of people who attended your meetings. Then look back in the clubs archives for the meeting attendance roster and tell yourself how many of these new 2nd amendment supports have attend in the past?
Yes it sure is swell the donations are pouring in to fight the big battle. Unfortunately it is decades late. What really riles me is not one Judge in NY has stood up and declared the firearms ban unconstitutional. It's not like sportsmen haven't see several federal decisions on firearms ban's and law's the last few years be overturned.
My inbox is flooded with meeting dates, opinions on how we can overcome firearms bans from people I've never had correspondence from in the past.


I'm sure many of us have seen these devout supporters in the past. You know as they walked by our tables at sporting shows and the like. The ones who came up and asked what "you're" doing to protect their "rights". The ones who flipped you off as the walked by laughing and yelled back over there shoulder they'd never join again because they were sent to many letters for donations and membership applications. They felt that advertising was a waste of money.


This past July I went to my office and started sorting out paperwork in anticipation of selling our home so we can escape from New York. I pulled out hundreds of letter to the NRA, legislators letters from four states that I've lived in. Dozens of magazine & newsletter articles several of which dated back into the 1930 & 40's. All had the same cadence, we must fight them now . Never give an inch, it our rights being trampled on.

I looked over much of the correspondences, the dates of meetings I sat in. As I thought back on all he hunting and fishing I missed out on protecting my rights while so many others were out enjoying themselves. Others who gave a crap about anything other than themselves.
I took a full pick-up truck load of paperwork or 40 years worth to the recycle center in July which included electronic files as well.


I was asked by a friend this past summer if I ever thought I had wasted my time being involved in all the politics. I replied with out hesitation YES. My wife once commented on how if I had been paid for all the thousands of hours spent doing all the work I've done that I'd be a millionaire.
Now days bullet and press sales have drop off from the first half of the year. Sportsmen are looking for big discounts on components. Unfortunately after the gougers and hoarders cleared the shelves of ammo and supplies the people now expect discount store pricing. Some feel it is my best interest to give up even more that I had in the past. I respond to this arrogance by telling them a story.

Had a guy at work who always wanted me to write a letter for him. He never belong to any association except his hunting camp. He work hundreds of hours of overtime every year making well into the 100k range. He never purchased a raffle ticket did nothing but ask for others to do for him.
So one day he asked me if I was going to attend a meeting in Albany. I replied, NO. He asked why? Can't afford to fight for you any longer. If you want me to go I'll need to be paid to take the day off. Besides I need my vacation time for hunting!

No discounts for memberships regardless of the profession. It is the profession you choose and you are well paid for what you do. Not everyone is a hero and those who ride the cape of heroism shame on you.
No discounts and no apologies to those who sat idly by letting a few of us fight for them. Again, No discounts and no apologies to anyone just send cash.

Comment from a GunBroker.co user on NY

MOST OF US hope we can get this country back from the IDIOTS that are taking our freedom from us. My Grandpa came here in 1870 because they took the only way he had to get food and that was with a GUN.
He said stay in Poland and die or come to the USA through Ellis Island and possibly live. He was 16 when he took the challenge.
HE WOULD REALLY BE PISSED OF TODAY AS THINGS ARE GOING. ALL OF THESE SHOOTINGS ARE BECAUSE OF MENTAL ISSUES. These people will turn to other ways of killing if guns are removed. I WILL PRAY FOR YOU ALSO IN NY. GOD BLESS.

See, some of us don't forget where we came from. Unlike the politicians who think they are part of the group that can help. Help themselves that is.
