GOA Offering Arguments in Heller II Case

Barrett Firearms

NOV 09, 2010 07:52P.M.

Murfreesboro, TN --(Ammoland.com)- The Barrett MRAD is a revolutionary design, conceived and built with the user in mind. Watch the MRAD in action, and you will appreciate the versatility of the MultiRole Adaptive Design.

GOA Offering Arguments in Heller II Case You can help by giving to the CFC (Agency Number 1054) or a similar private campaign.

The newest addition to the Barrett family of rifles is a truly innovative development. The MRAD sets a new standard among high-powered rifles for adaptability and customization. The modular design includes a user-changeable barrel system, removable by unscrewing two bolts with a standard Torx wrench. Maintenance and caliber interchangeability have never been this accessible at a user level. Gun Owners of America

Also incorporated into the MRAD rifle’s user-focused design is our new trigger module. This match-grade trigger is drop-fire-proof and combatready. The trigger module is easily accessed for maintenance, adjustment and replacement.

Washington, DC --(Ammoland.com)- Coming off some huge Election Day victories in the Congress, Gun Owners of America is now setting its sights on the courts.

The stock is where the MRAD rifle’s adaptability truly shines. It’s foldable for enhanced portability yet locks in as solid as a fixed-stock rifle, creating a platform for consistent firing. When folded, the stock latches around the bolt for added security during transport.

A big battle will be taking place next week on Monday, November 15, at the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Both Gun Owners of America and Gun Owners Foundation are involved in challenging an extremely restrictive gun control law in a case known as Heller II.

The MRAD is shipped in a .338 Lapua Magnum caliber, with a 24.5″ fluted barrel and Multi-Role Brown finish.

After the District of Columbia lost its 2008 case in Heller I, the city council enacted a firearms registration scheme that was nearly as draconian as the original law, which the Supreme Court had struck down.

This new addition to the Barrett line is a high-performance rifle you can truly make your own. Learn more at barrett.net.

The Heller I decision in 2008 was monumental, as it paved the way for the Chicago verdict earlier this year — which made clear that our Second Amendment rights apply throughout the entire country (not just in Washington, DC).

About: Barrett is a family-owned and operated company specializing in high performance rifle systems and accessories. Barrett manufactures rifles, ammunition, optics, and other related accessories for civilian sport shooters, law enforcement agencies, the United States military, and over 63 foreign allied militaries worldwide. For more information, go to barrett.net.

Gun Owners was also actively involved in the Chicago case, known as McDonald v. Chicago. This case is paying dividends, as recently as last month when a Wisconsin judge used the McDonald case to rule their ban

The court said it “agrees with Justice Clarence Thomas’s McDonald concurrence and application of the Fourteenth Amendment to this matter. In essence, no State shall abridge the privileges and immunities of citizens of the United States. As Justice Thomas demonstrates, the right to keep and bear arms is a fundamental right, not created by the Second Amendment, but secured or recognized by it.”

Your support for Gun Owners Foundation helps us to offer quality briefs in defense of gun owners’ rights. (You can read previous amicus briefs on the GOF site at gunowners.com.)

This appeal to the “privileges and immunities” of American citizens is exactly the argument that Gun Owners made in its amicus brief before the McDonald court.

So please help the Second Amendment — while making a tax-deductible contribution either through the CFC or the United Way. Of course, you can always donate online at the Gun Owners Foundation site: http://www.gunowners.com/donate.htm

It was worth every penny that was spent on the Heller I and McDonald cases.

Thank you very much.

In Heller II, we are challenging the new DC gun law. After all, what good does it do if the Court says you have an “individual right” to own a gun, but the city in which you live is still allowed to impose draconian restrictions which will cost you hundreds of dollars just so you can exercise that right.’

In many federal offices, there are subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) pressures to give to the Combined Federal Campaign. Your boss may think his prestige depends upon getting everyone to kick in. The same thing happens in all too many corporations during the United Way fundraising drive.

You may have wanted to give but couldn”t find a group that wasn’t attacking your rights, let alone defending them, on the list of participating organizations. But that has all changed! Federal employees now are able to designate Gun Owners Foundation (GOF) as the recipient of their gifts to the Combined Federal Campaign. Use Agency Number 1054 for Gun Owners Foundation when you make your Combined Federal Campaign pledge or donation. Your gifts will go toward helping us win cases like the Heller II case which is coming just around the corner.

FOURTH ANNUAL DEER MANAGEMENT PROGRAM Program will Continue in South Mountain Reservation, Eagle Rock Reservation and Hilltop Reservation West Orange, NJ – Essex County Executive Joseph N. DiVincenzo, Jr. outlined plans for the fourth annual Deer Management Program in Essex County on Monday, November 8th. The program will be continued in Essex County South Mountain Reservation for the fourth consecutive year and in Essex County Eagle Rock Reservation and Essex County Hilltop Reservation for the second consecutive year. It will be conducted over a six-week period on Tuesdays and Thursdays from Tuesday, January 18th to Thursday, February 24th. To maximize safety, the three reservations will be closed to the public on the days the Deer Management Program is being conducted. Reducing the number of deer is part of an ongoing initiative by the administration to preserve and restore the forest ecology in Essex County’s open spaces.

eight half days in the evening. The reduction in the number of days is attributed to the success of the program during the first three years. From 2008 to 2010, a total of 750 deer were removed from the three reservations utilizing the volunteer services of experienced and qualified sharpshooters. From South Mountain Reservation, there were 360 deer culled in 2008 (213 deer and 147 unborn deer), 138 deer in 2009 (83 deer and 55 unborn deer) and 59 deer in 2010 (44 deer and 15 unborn deer). In 2010, there were 42 deer removed from Eagle Rock Reservation (19 deer and 23 unborn deer) and 151 deer removed from Hilltop Reservation (97 deer and 54 unborn deer). South Mountain Reservation is located in Maplewood, Millburn and West Orange, Eagle Rock Reservation is in West Orange and Hilltop Reservation is in Cedar Grove, North Caldwell and Verona. “We appreciate the ongoing support of the County Executive to continue the Deer Management Program. The aging forest and dwindling understory make this program a necessity,” South Mountain Conservancy President Dennis Percher said. “The flip side is the unprecedented forest regeneration program. As the population of deer decreases, the seeds that are created in the enclosed areas will help regenerate the local ecosystem with native plants,” he said.

“Reducing the number of deer in our reservations is a very controversial and emotional issue, but it is a necessary step if we are going to preserve the forest habitat and maintain our reservations as viable resources for recreation and open space,” DiVincenzo said. “Over the last three years, we have removed 750 deer from our reservations, started a program to accelerate the growth of our forests and expanded a pilot program to reduce traffic accidents involving deer. The over abundance of deer affects all of our communities, and our program provides a comprehensive approach to address the problem. We are starting to see positive results and have updated our program to adapt to the changing conditions in each reservation,” he noted.

“The Deer Management Program has been a blessing for Eagle Rock Reservation. It is a much smaller area than South Mountain, but the damage to the forest is the same,” Eagle Rock Conservancy President Jim Christiano said. “The culling and forest regeneration have given us a platform to revitalize the forest. We can’t thank Joe enough for what he has done,” he noted.

In previous years, the County Executive lobbied the elected officials in each municipality where the culling program would be conducted to adopt a resolution supporting a controlled hunt. The Executive, however, believed that since the program was being conducted exclusively on Countyowned property the decision should be made by the County and not by the municipalities. Legislation allowing counties to develop community based deer management plans and apply for special deer management permits for countyowned lands was approved by the State in June 2010. (Note: The law was supported by NJOA and signed by Gov. Christie)

To maximize safety, South Mountain, Eagle Rock and Hilltop reservations and all parking areas and roads inside the three reservations will be closed to the public on the days the program is held. Fairview Avenue in Cedar Grove and Verona will be closed to traffic, but all other county roadways will remain open. Essex County Turtle Back Zoo, Essex County Codey Arena, the Essex County Park-N-Ride facility and the Highlawn Pavilion in West Orange will remain open. The Essex County Sheriff’s Office will coordinate safety patrols with local police departments.

The program will be conducted in South Mountain Reservation on Tuesdays, January 18th and 25th and Thursdays, January 20th and 27th and in Eagle Rock Reservation and Hilltop Reservation on Tuesdays, February 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd and on Thursdays, February 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th. The Executive pointed out that the program has been scaled back in South Mountain Reservation from six half days to four half days in the evening and in Eagle Rock Reservation from six full days to

Qualified, volunteer marksmen will be selected to participate as agents in the program. The volunteers are licensed by the State of New Jersey and must demonstrate their marksmanship ability and complete an orientation program with the Essex County Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs and the Essex County Sheriff’s Office. When in the reservations, the agents will station themselves in trees at least 20 feet above the ground and only take shots at a downward angle.

All deer removed from the reservations will be transported to a check station where County officials will inspect the animals and collect information about its age, reproductive status, gender and weight, as well as the number of shots fired. They will then be transported by the County to a U.S. Department of Agriculture and NJ Department of Health approved butcher for processing. Venison will be distributed to the needy and homeless through the Community FoodBank of New Jersey.

In addition to culling the deer herd, an aggressive replanting program to accelerate the regrowth of the forests is underway in South Mountain Reservation and Eagle Rock Reservation. A total of 47 enclosures (42 in South Mountain and 5 in Eagle Rock) have been installed over the past two years. Inside the enclosures, native vegetative species are planted so their seeds can be reintroduced into the area. The eight-foot high fences are designed to prevent deer and other large animals from foraging on the newly planted areas, but allow smaller animals, such as rodents and birds, to enter and exit. The fences will remain in place for about 25 years. The planting project was funded with grants from the NJ Green Acres program received by the South Mountain Conservancy and the Eagle Rock Conservancy and grants from the Essex County Recreation and Open Space Trust Fund.

Replanting native plant species was necessary to restore the forest understory that was being destroyed by the overbrowsing of deer. The loss of this vegetation has prevented new trees from growing, created erosion problems, allowed invasive plant species to flourish and caused the number of native animal species that rely on the plants for food or protection to decline.

Remington Team Member Kidd Wins National Sporting Clays Association Championship NOV 09, 2010 01:29P.M.

The third aspect of the Essex County Deer Management Program is enhancing safety on County roads by reducing the number of motor vehicle accidents involving deer. Over the last two years, a pilot program has been underway to install detection devices that reflect motor vehicle headlights and emit a high-pitched noise to scare deer away from the road when cars approach. Essex County received a $30,000 grant from the Essex County Parks Foundation in 2009 and a $75,000 grant from the New Jersey Department of Transportation in 2010. The reflectors are installed along Cherry Lane, Brookside Drive, JFK Parkway and Parsonage Hill Road in Millburn, Livingston and West Orange. The program has had positive results. In 2010 through October 1st, just 114 deer were removed from County roads. In 2009, there were 284 deer removed from County roads, in 2008 there were 363 and in 2007 there were 303.

Bushnell Outdoor Products Overland Park, KS. --(Ammoland.com)- Bushnell night vision optics are popular for scouting and wildlife watching, allowing viewers see into the dark undetected, without spooking game. The only drawback for some people is that the image has a green hue and there is a lack of contrast, so images are not always sharp and depth perception is difficult. The new 3×32 Digital Color NightVision monocular from Bushnell solves both problems. The new monocular uses a Color CCD Sensor and a digital color LCD screen to turn night into day. With some ambient light, color can easily be detected and in pitch black, stripes of an animal are detectable where previously not possible. The unit features true 3x magnification with a field of view of approximately 70 feet and a range of nearly 300 feet.

Those hunters rounding out the top five heaviest (all estimated live weights) antlered elk harvested, were: Charles H. Stowman, of Westover, Clearfield County, took a 868-pound, 8×7 on Nov. 3, in Grove Township, Cameron County; Domenic V. Aversa Sr., of Woolwich, New Jersey, took an 867-pound, 7×7 on Nov. 1, in Jay Township, Elk County; Richard R. Lundgren, of Kittanning, Armstrong County, took a 852-pound, 8×9 on Nov. 1, in Jay Township, Elk County; and James F. Wolfe, of Mercersburg, Adams County, took an 823-pound, 7×7 on Nov. 1, in Covington Township, Clearfield County. Roe noted that the antlers from Aversa’s elk green-scored at 389 and seven-eighths on the Boone & Crockett Club’s official scoring system. If that score holds after the required 60-day drying time, it will set a new record for Pennsylvania state typical elk taken with a firearm. The current record is held by John A. Polenski, of Meyersdale, Somerset County, who, in 2009, harvested a 6×7 antlered elk that scored 370.

Phoenix Refuses Appeal to Reason as ‘Guns Save Lives, Educate Your Kids’ Officially Censored

2. Write new ads in the hope that the city will approve of our words — but without clear guidelines on what the city will accept, and leaving us subject to their arbitrary case-by-case decision making, with unknown delays between our submission and their decrees; 3. Sue the bastages. The third option is only on the table because the Goldwater Institute believes this is a well-positioned case to finally challenge the Phoenix speech-restriction codes. The city’s ongoing policies of speech suppression, bureaucratic control of speech, inconsistent and arbitrary enforcement, and lack of clear guidelines have attracted the attention of two other leading public-policy law firms, The Institute for Justice, and Judicial Watch. A number of private-practice attorneys have also expressed desire to join the fray. Support for action from the public has been uniformly positive — thank you all for that. The city claims this has nothing to do with guns, and in fact proposed a version of our ad that included the big red “Guns Save Lives” heart. But they turned the meaning of our ad literally upside down.

It begins:

case. I half expected the city to come crawling back with an apology and a reversal. Instead they postponed, repeatedly promised an answer, missed one self-imposed deadline after another, left me high and dry expecting phone calls, and finally said you’re out of luck, your words are banned, have a nice day. But don’t worry, it has nothing to do with guns or the right to keep and bear arms. Right.

“In Arizona, marksmanship matters. ‘The Train-Me State’ knows that a nation, trained to arms, is an American linchpin of freedom, and is respected in Arizona like nowhere else. The Arizona legislature has enacted vibrant protection of the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. We in Arizona seem destined to set models for the nation-in this case, a shining example of gun rights for all free peoples of the Earth.” Read the rest — http://www.trainmeaz.com

Can the city tell you what you can say at a public transit bus stop, by claiming it’s a “non-public forum” (that’s their precise claim)? Does that even make sense? Can they say our commercial message, approved by their commercial licensee CBS Outdoor, paid for by a commercial outfit like TrainMeAZ, LLC, with commercial sponsors, seeking to educate kids and parents by paid professionals, is not commercial, and get away with it?

The city claims this amounts to a public-service announcement (PSA), and PSAs are forbidden by those who would dictate speech rules in city government, another point Goldwater seeks to challenge. Where does the city find its authority to ban PSAs? I asked. They couldn’t say exactly. But they did note that if they allowed such speech, other people could post announcements too, and some bus riders “might be offended” by this.

What do you think we’re going to do? This will take about a week or two. Sit tight, you won’t be disappointed.

To avoid this terrible consequence of free speech, only ads that “propose commercial transactions” are allowed. The city masterminds (one man actually, their attorney who failed to attend our meeting), believe “Educate Your Kids,” with a website that provides trainers and ranges, is not commercial enough. So our headline text died along with our text message:
