From this week (10/29/2011):

I hope this week has been a good one for you all.  Here in Hanover, we had a real scare.  An 8-year-old autistic child ran away from his father in a heavily wooded park last Sunday.  He had been missing all week and massive searches were conducted by professionals and volunteers.  Yesterday, the child was found, alive and well.  He was, of course, dehydrated and had some minor cuts and scrapes, but is in remarkably good condition for spending almost 6 full days in the elements.  The rescue came just in the nick of time, as a nor’easter blew in last night and the weather has turned cold and wet.  We witnessed a miracle this week!

 

Now on to the second amendment stuff.  As many of you know, the vast majority of college campuses think that freedom and the God-given right to self preservation stops at their threshold.  This subject is a hot topic and some think that our “children” can’t be trusted to defend themselves.  Yet these same “children” are relied upon to defend our country in many instances. 

 

A group called Students for Concealed Carry on Campus is endeavoring to gain the right for concealed carry permit holders to be allowed to carry on campus.  These are not irresponsible children, they are…by law…over 21 years old, have taken government mandated training and have passed a background check.  Many are professors, administrators and seasoned veterans going to college on the GI bill.  In addition, it has been shown that if and when a crazed maniac like Cho decides to commit mass murder, they tend to first choose defenseless victims, and second they give up when met with resistance.  This would suggest to us that our best first line of defense is to arm ourselves and to not be willing, compliant victims.

 

During the months of November and early December, the Virginia Citizens Defense League, Students for Concealed Carry and other civic minded campus organizations will be staging demonstrations to draw attention to this travesty of justice.  I urge you to consider participating.  In addition, if you have ever donated to a college which bans legal carry on campus, please consider letting them know “No Guns, NO FUNDS”; in other words, we will not donate our hard earned dollars to schools that don’t respect our rights!

 

Finally, I would suggest that you set our web page, www.2asisters.org, as your home page.  The site is updated daily with pertinent links and articles, helping you keep abreast of things developing across our nation.

From last week (10/22/2011):

There have been a lot of emails floating around lately, some true, some not so much.

First, let's start with the not-so-much! The email about George Soros owning Cerberus, owner of Freedom Group is FALSE! While it is true that Freedom Group has bought a number of gun-related companies, it is not affiliated with George Soros. You can breathe a sigh of relief on that count.

Next, let's move on to Fast and Furious. This one is serious. In what appears to be a blatant attempt to "prove" that American guns are fueling violence south of the border, the BATFE has deliberately facilitated sales to known felons, gun runners and drug lords. These guns did not just go to Mexico, but were sold to known gangs WITHIN OUR BORDERS! The lid blew off the entire operation when Border Patrol Agent Terry was murdered with one of the guns from this "sting".

This entire operation was, and continues to be, a travesty of justice and a misuse of the authority granted to the BATFE by us, the American Citizen. Those responsible need to be held criminally accountable. To that end, Second Amendment Sisters is drafting a letter to Congress on behalf of you, our membership, demanding that justice be done...and that does not mean promoting the heads of the departments who authorized this illegal activity.

For more details on what has been going on with Fast and Furious, please go to our web site at www.2asisters.org. On the front page you will find a lot of articles about F&F and be able to see how events unfolded in the media, including recent revelations showing that AG Eric Holder lied to Congress under oath. You will also find many other articles that may interest you. Please explore our newly redesigned site and let us know what you think of it!

BLM targets desert shooters PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 21 October 2011 13:57

Hello Freedom Lovers, 

In case you have not heard...

...public meetings are being held to provide input into policy proposals regarding BLM land use. A couple of things on their proposal are aimed at banning target shooting on BLM land. 

 

There is seldom justification with regard to such actions, in fact, this is how a slow deterioration of our rights begins. What I have read so far points to a concern about "public safety," littering at the target sites, and "potential" harm to protected plants and rock formations. I have seen no real data supporting any of these claims, none that can be held up against the open desert shooter anyway. What we need to concern ourselves with is that a segment of the AZ population is being singled out and blamed for problems that cannot be rationally used against us to restrict our rights. 

 

Point Blank

 

You will find the proposal and meeting location listed on the following link. You can also write in to voice your opinion, info is on the same link below.

Arizona Fights Back PDF Print E-mail
Sunday, 16 January 2011 14:03

 

Hello Freedom Lovers,
 
It is the end of a VERY LONG WEEK. The events in Tucson have dominated the news and the minds of America. I thought I would share some observations by SAS, things we have kept track of, things being said about the event and actions across the country, our thoughts on the event. This is for your info, hope it helps you not only deal with the tragedy of the event, but also situations you may encounter later, and the anti-rights messages and actions you may run across. Let me know if I missed something, I'll blast that out too. 
 
First, SAS national's formal statement about the event was posted on our website: www.2asisters.org, I will share it here:
 
The tragic occurrence at AZ Congresswoman Gifford's "Congress on Your Corner" event this week has captured the minds and hearts of America. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families. 
 
As Second Amendment Sisters, we will simply continue to adhere to our conviction that self-defense is our right and responsibility. In that context, our appreciation goes to those citizens who took action to stop the attack and to those in the spot light who are remaining above the political rhetoric that revolves around this terrible incident. No law or rule can change or prevent the actions of someone who is obviously determined to harm others. This is a human issue, it is our hope that people will show respect to those that are suffering and keep them in their prayers. 
 
Second, I wanted to give you some factoids shared/learned by the gun community here is AZ. It is my hope that these are things you can use, things we can do to fend off those who will use this event against us to try to disarm us.

Nikki Goeser Testifies in Ohio PDF Print E-mail
Written by Second Amendment Sisters   
Tuesday, 26 January 2010 11:44
Almost a year ago, Nikki Goeser witnessed her husband's murder because Tennessee's laws prohibited open and concealed carry of guns for self-defense in restaurants. Tennessee changed its laws thanks largely to her willingness to share her heartbreak. Her goal now is to help others learn from it.

Nikki recently told her story to the Ohio State Legislature in hopes of keeping self-defense available to anyone, anywhere.
