    Default 2013 2nd Amendment Action Day & lobbying event

    2013 2nd Amendment Action Day & lobbying event.

    The 8th annual Second Amendment Action Day & interactive lobbying event is going to be on

    Tuesday April 23, 2013 rally kicks off at 10 am on the main steps inside of the State Capitol Rotunda, Harrisburg PA


    Lots of information at this one location http://www.2arally.com/
    *Speakers
    *Issues
    *Direction - Parking –maps
    And much more, Please view this here before asking a question







    With the 2013 Pennsylvania Right To Keep and Bear Arms Action Day quickly approaching we wanted to take a moment to highlight the most important part of the rally that we do each year: Legislator Education.

    Each year after the speaking engagements for the rally, gun owners from around the Commonwealth are organized into groups broken down into groups and assigned a team leader so that they may walk the halls of our capitol speaking to legislators about issues important to gun owners. This is one of, if not the, single most important thing gun owners can do to help preserve their rights!
    As time is very short to catch Reps in their offices before session, groups are organized based on office locations in capital.

    Some parts of PA no gun owners come to see their Reps, so we ask everyone to go visit the Reps with a group. It does no good if everyone visits the same dozen of pro gun Reps offices, and no one goes to the others Reps that also get to vote on our bills. Educating all the Reps is the goal!

    Afterward you will have time to go speak with your Reps if they are not part of your group assignments

    Please note that when picking a group to join, try to go for the one with the fewest amount of people. We want to make sure that the groups are split up as evenly as possible, if everyone runs to the first group in their list, this won’t work out so well.

    Once again, thank you to every gun owner who joins us in standing up for their rights and we can’t wait to see you there!

    Hi Everybody


    It has been a long wait but at 1:00 pm today surgery started. Kim is receiving a new liver from a

    39 year old man from West Virginia . Pray for Kim, the doctors and the family of the donor.

    Surgery should take 5 to 8 hours. The doctors said the condition of the liver was pristine.

    I will try to let you all know when I get home tonight.

    Anyone with a handgun and a valid LTCF permit as we have in the past and will make provisions to have them safely stored by the capital police in the PO Office sized lock boxes or down stairs. All handguns will be secured.

    No special accommodations will be made for ANY one that brings: Long Guns, SBR, SBS or AOW as the focus of this event will be to directly speak to our elected Representatives, not carrying these guns.

    There are other venues and events where carrying these types of arms are appropriate and should be brought to make a statement, this is NOT that event here on this day for doing that statement.

    IF you want to insist on bring anything other than a handgun to this legislative lobbying event, or have a problem with providing the information requested by the capital police form.

    It’s your responsibility to go to the capital in advance of this event, speak with the capital police leadership to deal with your special concerns, to your satisfaction, not anyone else.

    If you choose not to pursue this responsible course of action prior to the day of the event, you are on your own, deal with the consequences. Contact your state Reps to solve the problem instead of anyone else.

    The PA Capitol Building Firearms check-in form is attached. I suggest you fill it out before arriving. Go in the entrance on the fountain side of the building and tell the Capitol police that that you have a firearm to check. They'll want the filled out form and your LTCF. They have several racks of PO Box sized lockers for locking up each one individually. In my recent experiences they have been courteous and efficient.

    On this link is an editable PDF form to pre fill out your firearm information to expedite your check in time at security
    .

    http://forum.pafoa.org/attachment.ph...1&d=1271854880

    Please note that you can only check firearms at the Commonwealth Ave. entrance.

    Also since checking firearms is going to be a issue, EVERYONE please try to be patient and understand with capital police, most every officer that we have met really appreciate gun owners efforts at these lobbying event because when they take the badge off they are just like US and stupid gun control laws put them and their families at risk just like the rest of US.

    If someone has a problem with capital security get the officers name and badge number Immediately after clearing security come find one of the volunteer staff helping on this event then will we deal with it that day with the Reps help it will be resolved. It will be handled promptly just don’t be a jerk about it, making a scene that makes all of US look bad.

    DON'T wait to come home and post it here, resolve your problem there, that day. If its un safe handling of firearms whatever, lets US know. Let’s work together to get it fix and resolve this with capital police that day.

    The capital police officer have a difficult job handling their assigned security task they don’t make the rules, the Reps do, they delegate authority to a position which they oversee. They are going to be overwhelmed with lots gun owners on April 23th, just put yourself in their shoes for a moment, they are people just like US and like I said most do appreciate of efforts to fight for our rights so give them some slack.

    Title 18, section 913:

    (e) Facilities for checking firearms or other dangerous weapons.--Each county shall make available at or within the building containing a court facility by July 1, 2002, lockers or similar facilities at no charge or cost for the temporary checking of firearms by persons carrying firearms under section 6106(b) or 6109 or for the checking of other dangerous weapons that are not otherwise prohibited by law. Any individual checking a firearm, dangerous weapon or an item deemed to be a dangerous weapon at a court facility must be issued a receipt. Notice of the location of the facility shall be posted as required under subsection (d).

    Title 18, section 6106 (b)

    (11) Any person while carrying a firearm in any vehicle, which person possesses a valid and lawfully issued license for that firearm which has been issued under the laws of the United States or any other state.

    (15) Any person who possesses a valid and lawfully issued license or permit to carry a firearm which has been issued under the laws of another state, regardless of whether a reciprocity agreement exists between the Commonwealth and the state under section 6109(k), provided:

    (i) The state provides a reciprocal privilege for individuals licensed to carry firearms under section 6109.

    (ii) The Attorney General has determined that the firearm laws of the state are similar to the firearm laws of this Commonwealth.

    The section above is the area of law that is being used to deny people the ability to enter the Capitol building with firearms because of the PA Supreme Court hearing rooms upstairs. The section below is the one referenced in Section 913 and as you can see ‘carry’ is defined as those who have a valid and lawfully issued license. Perhaps it is not obvious but this does preclude LONG GUNS!

    This Thread is a work in progress

    Special note at different time at several of the past annual lobbying a few people refused to provide the additional id requested by the capital police (that is outside of the scope in the UFA requirements) and they were refused entry to the capital complex. If you have a problem with this extra requirement you now have several weeks prior to April 23, 2013 to contact the capital police to correct this to your satisfaction and / or contact your state Reps to address this problem or don’t go.

    Out of respect please take that extra requirement discussion to another thread and work together to get it changed by contacting capital police leadership and or your state Reps.

    If you want to push the issue, there are many other days besides this dedicated lobbying day to make a political statement, or to prove your point.

    The police officers working the security detail have a very difficult job dealing with the general public are following the instructions and procedures from their superior officers on checking firearms.

    Most the capital police officers are very supportive our efforts to improve and protect their firearm rights, so take your firearm check in problem to the ones that makes the rules or those that hold their leash, not the individual police officers working security

    The people organizing this Jan 23 event are good guys. Show your support of their efforts to protect ALL of our rights if you can attend.

    Please make a point to attend both events if you can, they both are worthy of your support.

    Attending the Jan 23 event may send a message to legislators to consider their sponsorship on not yet introduced legislation.

    Attending the 8th annual this is coalition effort by several state based groups

    April 23th the focus will be to advance pro gun legislation, speak with Reps to educate them and sway their opinions

    My day off is scheduled.

    And as always, the offer for car pooling is in affect. Please note that for this event I will have two seats available, as most likely my kids will join me as they did last year.

    If this changes and there are extra seats I will let you know.
