GOA: Police Drop the Charges Against Jared Marcum!

 

Police Drop the Charges Against Jared Marcum!

These and other victories remind us, once again,
there’s much to be grateful for this Independence Day

“I can’t thank Larry Pratt and Gun Owners enough for standing with Jared and his family during these difficult days.  You were there when we needed you.  GOA and GOF’s legal and financial support was critical to Jared’s defense, to blocking the gag order which the government asked for, and finally obtaining a dismissal of all charges against Jared.  Thank you for all you do and thanks for the GOA T-shirts!” — Ben White, attorney for Jared Marcum

Gun Owners of America wants to thank all of you who contributed to the Jared Marcum legal defense fund.

All charges have now been dropped against the West Virginia teenager, and Jared will not have a criminal record.

In April, the 14-year-old was ordered by a band teacher to change his T-shirt because the instructor did not like the shirt’s pro-gun message.  The shirt stated “protect your right” and pictured a rifle with a scope.

Jared was suspended from school, and later was arrested for “obstructing” an officer.  He faced a $500 fine and one year in jail.

The police then issued a gag order against the family and his attorney, preventing them from talking about the case.  And as if that wasn’t Orwellian enough, a reporter who tried to contest the gag order found herself being ejected from the courthouse.  The reason?

If you guessed “obstruction,” then you move to the head of the class!

All of this heavy-handedness on part of the police led Kurt Hofmann of the Examiner to say, “The Logan, West Virginia PD apparently has the most easily ‘obstructed’ police officers since the Keystone Cops.”

In the midst of all this, GOA helped ignite a national outrage after alerting activists two weeks ago to what was happening in the Mountain State.

Plus, Gun Owners Foundation quickly set up a legal defense fund to assist the attorney who was taking Jared’s case pro bono.

Thankfully, the case is now over, as the police dropped all charges against Jared Marcum on Thursday.

With this victory behind them, the Marcum family is now considering legal action against the school district.  GOA will be watching these efforts closely and will keep you updated.

In similar news, GOA is working with a Congressman in Washington to cut-off federal funds to any school district that imposes a zero-tolerance policy that punishes (e.g., suspends) children for wearing shirts containing a pro-gun message … or for playing cops-and-robbers during recess … or for turning their pop tarts into “weapons” … or extending their fingers to resemble a gun, etc.

Please stay tuned.

GOA wins initial victory on behalf of pro-gun sheriff

Gun Owners of America also won an initial skirmish in Wisconsin, where a sheriff has come under attack for his pro-gun views.

If you’ve heard the name David Clarke, you know that he is one of the most pro-gun sheriffs in the country.

Last month, GOA Executive Director Larry Pratt personally awarded the “High Noon Award” to Wisconsin’s Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke, Jr., for “standing for truth when others run, for telling the truth even though politically incorrect.”

In a public safety announcement earlier this year, Sheriff Clarke told viewers:  “With officers laid off and furloughed, simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option. You can beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide under the bed or you can fight back. But are you prepared?”

The ad ends with Clarke stating, “You have a duty to protect yourself and your family. We’re partners now. Can I count on you?”

Well, a panel on the Milwaukee Board of Supervisors tried to discriminate against Sheriff Clarke and punish him for his pro-gun views.  The committee did so by voting to restrict Sheriff David Clarke from appearing in any future public service announcements.

For the record, David Clarke has made several public service announcements, but they were never a problem until he cut the “pro-gun” advertisement.

Recognizing this for the sheer discrimination it is, Gun Owners of America immediately activated its grassroots network within the state and asked them to contact all the Board of Supervisors.

According to several media outlets, the GOA alert resulted in the Board being “flooded” and “inundated” with emails supporting Sheriff Clarke.

When politicians feel the heat … they see the light.

The full Board of Supervisors looked into the situation and sent the “gag order” resolution back to the committee.  So while it’s bottled up there for now, it means Sheriff Clarke is free to continue educating the public on their rights and responsibilities relating to self-defense.

Help celebrate Independence Day — and our recent victories — with a gift membership to GOA

You activism has helped us achieve tremendous victories this year.

In addition to the victories mentioned above, we were able to pull off one of the biggest activism coups in recent memory.

Don’t forget that seven months ago, after the Sandy Hook tragedy, the entire nation thought that new gun control restrictions were a foregone conclusion.  But you showed them that gun owners are passionate about their constitutional rights and that they are willing to make their voices heard!

As a result, we killed gun control in the Senate, and our Second Amendment rights were not infringed.

The Constitution — and the Declaration of Independence — are two of the greatest documents ever produced by man.  But as you know, they are under relentless attack today.

With your help, however, we will continue to defend the “unalienable rights” endowed by our Creator and the protections that were passed down to us from our Founding Fathers.  In the Declaration, they clearly indicated their “firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence,” and 237 years later, we find ourselves doing the same to defend our gun rights.

Hence, it’s timely that we will be celebrating Independence Day in a few days.  In addition to the ways you may choose to celebrate, there’s one more that we would ask you to consider.

And that is to give your pro-gun family and friends a gift membership with Gun Owners of America.

When you do, you increase the voice of the most active grassroots gun lobby that is constantly on the front lines defending your rights.

The more activists who, like you, send their e-mails and postcards to their legislators … the louder your voice becomes in the halls of Congress.

To give a gift membership in Gun Owners of America, simply click on this link.

Once you click on the above link, fill in the information for your family members or friends.  You can then print out a Gift Certificate which you can present to the recipients of your generosity.

Thank you!

Hunt for the elusive Tea Party murderer continues

Liberal hopes were dashed with the revelation that the Boston Marathon bombers were a couple of Chechen Muslim immigrants.  The Left was so sure they had finally bagged the elusive Tea Party murderer!  The bombings occurred in Boston on Tax Day.  Surely, at long last, the opportunity to smear libertarians, small-government conservatives, anti-tax crusaders, and the whole hellish tri-corner hat crowd was at hand!  ”Two plus two equals…?” Michael Moore burbled happily, retreating back into his copious shell of sub-human idiocy when the answer turned out to be “Islam.”

That’s how the junior member of the bombing team, Dzhokar Tsarnaev, explained his “outlook” on an Internet profile.  Family and friends talk of the brothers growing more intensely involved in the stricter aspects of their religion over the past few years.  The older brother, Tamerlan – named after a brutal Islamic conqueror from centuries past – seems to have led the way, with Dzhokar trotting after him like a “puppy.”  Somewhere along the way, they became radicalized – a process that will be of great interest to investigators in the weeks ahead.

We Win. They Lose. The 2nd Amendment is Safe.

Yesterday in the Senate, a funny thing happened.

We fought on principle, and we won on principle. You know why?

Because 3 U.S. Senators didn’t listen to the “do something” caucus and the hand-wringers parading as leaders in Washington. Instead, Senators Cruz, Lee and Paul circulated a warning prior to the last recess saying they would (gasp) filibuster any legislation that would undermine our God-given, fundamental right to bear arms. It just so happens that this God-given right is enshrined in the Constitution.

We have a play book, ladies and gentleman: fight and win.

Southern Poverty Law Center Inspires Floyd Lee Corkins’ Attempted Mass Shooting

When Congresswoman Giffords and several others were shot in Arizona by Jared Loughner, the left went into overdrive blaming Sarah Palin for a map that had a list of political targets on it.

After the fact, we learned that Lochner was a-political and he clearly had not used Sarah Palin’s map of political targets. That did not stop the left from blaming the right. In fact, I was on CNN with an overwrought Cornell Belcher shortly after the shooting who was outraged. He said we could not equate anything on the left with the violence of the tea party despite evidence to the contrary.

In fact, most networks spent a lot of time on the subject of hate, Sarah Palin’s political target map, and political violence.

I’m willing to bet the media will ignore today’s news.

Largest Gun Control Push in Minnesota History Started Today

___

Wait! What? Homicides drop as gun sales increase??

How can that be??

___

The letter below was published on Jan 10, 2013 in The Newtown Bee, the local paper of Newtown, CT, where the Dec. 14, 2012 Sandy Hook school massacre occurred.

Elected Officials Are Fundamentally Dishonest1/10/2013

To the Editor:

This letter was forwarded to Barack Obama, John Boehner, Chris Murphy, Dick Blumenthal, Elizabeth Esty, and Harry Reid

I live in Sandy Hook, CT. My family and close friends weren’t harmed on December 14. That day impacted 26 families with an indescribable, staggering pain and anguish. For most of Sandy Hook, it merely affected us with an inescapable intensity of sadness and grief.

Gun control has long been a focus of many in this country. Though I’m not knowledgeable of all the nuances of the Second Amendment, based on the Founding Fathers’ circumstances, it had far more to do with enabling the citizenry to protect themselves against tyrannical government than against local psychopaths. It is about providing a balanced firepower so when King George’s successor came knocking on your door, you could fight back. Government today is no less inclined to abuse its authority than it was then. Based on the absurd and ongoing power grab that is present day Washington, it’s as threatening as ever.

That so many of you view the NRA with its resistance to further restrictions on firearms as intransigent lunatics has far more to do with how you conduct yourselves in office than it does with the NRA’s actions.

You in public office are fundamentally dishonest people. You lead lives of deception at every turn, structuring your lives as comfortably as you can while governing with an indifference and arrogance that is absolutely maddening. When the country is reeling from financial disaster, you waste a trillion dollars on a health care bill we can’t afford and you’ve never read. You claim it’s critical because health care costs are killing this country… no they’re not, you are! You are killing this country. You endorse the ongoing slaughter of millions of unborn children and whine when terrorists are water boarded. You can’t lecture us right in Newtown High School about not doing enough to keep our children safe, while simultaneously slaughtering the unborn. You fabricate the intense, media laden drama of the fiscal cliff and lack the courage to do anything about truly reforming the obscene gluttony of government. You know you’ll be out of office before the bill comes due… you don’t care and have no integrity nor honor.

You lie whenever and wherever you need to to move forth your agenda. Were you able, you would purge the US of guns… every last gun in the country, if you could. So please forgive Wayne LaPierre and those of us who don’t trust you as far as we can spit. You’re a dishonest lot, motivated by a distorted worldview. If mass murder prevention were truly your goal, you would welcome armed security wherever needed. It is outrageous that we protect our money with far more firepower than we protect our children.

I have never owned a gun, nor wanted to as intensely as right now. You’ll stop restricting guns when only you have them.

Go read it..Is interesting little but of data to chew on and think about, especially those whom want our guns. Remember 13.7 million whom hunt and how many millions are really adept at stalking animals. So when we disappear into the woods and you come a looking for us…Think about that…I knwo a few areas where a person could disappear and make life really miserable for anyone seeking them..

Now add all the ‘gun owners’ who don’t hunt. But are adept at shooting, shoot often..

NRA President David Keene says anti-gun activists have made direct threats on the lives of his son and daughter in the wake of the Sandy Hook school massacre. “Civility is only required of us, civility doesn’t count for them,” Keene told the Daily Caller.

And i find it pretty stupid that gun grabbing, haters would threaten a gun owning President of the largest gun owning organization in America.  Seems to me a lot of stupid right there.

But then the left and Buck Ofama’s thugs have been displaying lots of stupid lately..

Chicago Is Full Of Flying Bullets Because The Rest Of The Nation Has Gun Rights

Very restrictive gun-licensing laws, no gun stores, no tolerance of armed private citizens in public, no assault rifles, no high-capacity magazines, and no shooting ranges: Chicago is a gun hater’s utopia. It’s also the city where 44 homicides and 160 shootings were recorded in January alone. The Windy City is a portrait of the hypocrisy of gun control.

And just stay there.  It will be Gun Free Amerika for you. Leave the rest of us alone then…

Constitutional Sheriffs..

When a society allows its political leaders to pass unjust laws the people suffer. When only just laws are enforced, the people’s lives, liberty and property are respected. In a where just laws prevail the result is peace, prosperity and freedom.

In a society that embraces only just laws the court system promotes equal justice, but when unjust laws are passed and enforced injustice prevails and the Courts destroy the justice they were created to provide..When unjust laws become commonplace the government becomes the usurper of power and begins to extend special benefits and privileges to certain groups and individuals at the expense others.

Any law that violates the principles spelled out in the Constitution are unjust. The Sheriffs have been elected to protect our rights and were to be the guardians of our liberty and the defender of our Constitution. It was stated years ago that it is sometimes necessary for a patriot to defend his country from his government. The Constitution was written to control the government not to control the people.

A County Sheriff must decide whether he or she will honor their oath or be an administrative assistant to the President of the United States. The Sheriff can not serve two masters. He must take his marching orders from the people or the President.. It is up to us to elect righteous men or women to serve as our County Sheriff.

As a resident of the county, we have a right to know if our Sheriff had their fingers crossed when they promised to uphold the Constitution. We need to contact every single County Sheriff in the land and find out who they are working for.

Syria declares right to retaliate as Israeli planes fly over Lebanon


On Thursday, Syria made a formal complaint to the United Nations and declared its right to self defense after Wednesday’s Israeli strike on Syrian territory. Russia, Iran, Lebanon, Hezbollah, and the Arab League also condemned the attack. Syria’s ambassador to Lebanon said that Syria had “the option and the capacity to surprise in retaliation.” However, many analysts believe the Syrian military is too taxed by internal fighting to retaliate. The details of the attack are still unclear, and it is uncertain if there was one strike or two. Anonymous U.S. officials reported a warplane hit a military convoy carrying arms to Hezbollah in Lebanon. Conversely, Syria claimed the strike targeted a scientific research facility. Israel has continued to refrain from comment, which some say is strategic. Lebanon reported more Israeli warplanes have flown over southern Lebanon on Friday. Departing U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, in her final press interview in the position, warned that Iran has increased military and financial aid to the Syrian government and said the administration believes that Russia has continued to supply funding and military assistance. For the first time, Russian and U.S. officials along with U.N. and Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi are all set to meet together with opposition Syrian National Coalition officials on the sidelines of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Munich on Saturday. However, Russia has not yet confirmed the meeting.
