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.

The People Win! All About! Who Lied? Tyrants! Marine! 7 Stages!

“Happily for mankind, liberty is not, in this respect, confined to any single point of time, but lies within extremes, which afford sufficient latitude for all the variations which may be required by the various situations and circumstances of civil society.”

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.
