Author’s Note: I am a member of the Cape May County Young Republicans, helping to organize ATF Day, and have organized ATF Days for other organizations in the past.
What the hell, Save Jerseyans?
In order to promote its 2nd Annual ATF Day (Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms), Cape May County Young Republican President Tom Rotondi paid to “boost” a Facebook post the group made asking prospective attendees to save the date for the event.
According to Rotondi, Facebook predicted that between 5,000-9,000 “boosts” would occur, i.e. appear in 5,000-9,000 news feeds. The post reads “Save the Date CMC Young Republicans 2nd Annual ATF day is coming!” and includes a link to the email blast that CMCYRs sent out to its membership.
Yesterday’s heart-wrenching newsout of Fort Hood is distressingly familiar, Save Jerseyans: another mentally-ill shooter taking advantage of a “gun free zone” resulting in innocent lives lost.
The worst part? Besides thinking of the families and what they’re going through?
We could write the script for what happened yesterday, by memory, without even knowing any of the facts. It’s going to keep happening until the anti-gun crazies in government extract their heads from their own hindquarters…
The affidavit says that in August 2013, a prominent California political consultant who had been working to raise money for Yee’s campaigns told a prospective donor — an undercover federal agent — that Yee “had a contact who deals in arms trafficking.”
Folks: last week’s roll call of the Assembly vote on restricting magazines to 10 rounds has caused some debate in my neck of the woods on Assemblyman Bob Andrzejczak’s (D LD-1) commitment to the Second Amendment.
Andrzejczak voted “No”, not that his vote was a tiebreaker. Some people have argued that the Assemblyman is not a true advocate for the Second Amendment, that he does not stand up to the Democrats who are chipping away at gun rights, that he merely said what Jeff Van Drew told him to say to get backing from the NJ2AS membership last fall, and will only vote in favor of 2A issues if there are enough Dem votes to shoot down the bill. Others have countered that Andrzejczak is a strong 2A advocate, who does speak up on behalf of NJ gun owners, and just found himself in the same situation as many GOP 2A legislators: the numbers simple weren’t on his side.
Well, Save Jerseyans, there’s a very easy way to determine which side is right, the “Bob’s a poser” or the “Bob’s the real deal” factions. Below please find the transcript of every speech Bob Andrzejczak gave in opposing this legislation.
The New Jersey Assembly struck yet another blow against the rule of law today, Save Jerseyans, by passing both A-2006 (a 10-round limit on the capacity of gun magazines) and A-2777 (defines “reasonable deviation” in the context of transporting firearms).
Assemblyman Republican Conference Leader David Rible (R-Monmouth and Ocean) didn’t mince words:
“Passage of the gun magazine ban is a victory for all gun-toting criminals who will continue to ignore our gun laws. At the same time, the legislation approved today only serves to make criminals out of law-abiding gun owners.”
The Senate majority supports new magazine limits; its fate will soon be in Governor Chris Christie’s hands. Click here to contact his office.
I said last September that Colorado #2A activists’ successful recall of two Democrat legislators – including their own state senate president – could be bad news for New Jersey’s Steve Sweeney. Unfortunately for everyone except Sweeney, the NJ GOP establishment didn’t challenge him at the polls and Garden State grassroots weren’t sufficiently organized.
There’s some real hope for our country, Save Jerseyans, however small!
In this case, “small” is the operative word, concerning her physical stature but definitely not her heart (or wit).
Meet Shyanne Roberts, the 9-year old competition shooter from South Jersey who testified before the New Jersey Law and Public Safety Committee on Thursday afternoon in opposition to A2006, the 10-round magazine limit legislation, and who earned a raucous round of applause from the audience for her efforts:
“The passage of this legislation does not make the citizens of this state any safer and could actually put people’s lives in danger. In fact, limiting the capacity of gun magazines only serves to curtail the ability of law-abiding citizens to protect themselves, their families and their property…
The Assembly Law & Public Safety Confiscation committee will convene at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday to pretend like it’s actually considering legislation to limit firearm magazine capacity to 10 rounds, Save Jerseyans, but you and I both know they’ve already decided.
It’s only a “hearing” in the loosest sense of the word; citizens present will be hearing plenty of BS!
NRA chieftain Wayne LaPierre’s Thursday address was the first speech I was able to take in since coming down to CPAC 2014 (Conservative Political Action Committee), Save Jerseyans.
I wasn’t disappointed. LaPierre’s remarks were fantastic and drew a steady stream of applause and cheering from the attendees. As a staunch Second Amendment supporter and a member of NJ2AS fighting the legislature’s gun grab in New Jersey, I was moved by his short but delightfully on-point speech.
In their never-ending quest to trample upon New Jersey residents’ Second Amendment rights, Trenton Democrat yet again brought in the families of Newtown children this week and orchestrated yet another round of blatantly-manipulative photo ops, Save Jerseyans.
