Second Amendment Sisters - NH, Leadership Change

SAS-NH Leadership Change

Change is inevitable and welcomed here in New Hampshire, like our coming spring. Kate Muller, who since September 2008 has been a very effective State Coordinator for the Second Amendment Sisters has decided to focus her efforts on her new town of Goffstown and be supportive to the rest of the area coordinators. According to Kate “It's been my pleasure to serve as SAS-NH State Coordinator. It has been an amazing five years learning, teaching, and making dear friends with the women of SAS. Now that my dear friend Margot is taking over as State Coordinator I can focus on my first love, training more women to safely handle and shoot firearms. I am looking forward to lots range time with SAS.”

Effective immediately, Margot Keyes has assumed the position of State Coordinator for New Hampshire. In her whirlwind three years with SAS, Margot has gone from Member, to Epsom Area Coordinator, to NRA Basic Pistol Instructor and the Registration Coordinator for all of the NH ladies’ shoots, to now becoming the State Coordinator. She has been heavily involved in the ladies’ monthly shoots and basic pistol instruction, while at times also attending gun shows and presenting testimony to our House and Senate on behalf of SAS.

Margot welcomes this challenge saying, “We are constantly growing our membership and especially our leadership lately. I brought three new area coordinators to SAS just this month and their help has been invaluable. I would not take on this responsibility without knowing my fellow coordinators and sisters are here to support me. We have many sisters who are involved in various ways, so there is always someone to help keep our right to bear arms alive. I am looking forward to continuing to keep New Hampshire a well-organized, member-appreciative, and 2A-active state.”

Here are Margot and Kate, friends for over 10 years, teaching at a local pistol club.

Heritage - A Nation That Is 'Boston Strong' 

April 16, 2014

 

A Nation That Is 'Boston Strong'

After the bombing shattered the Boston Marathon last year, hundreds of runners left their shoes behind in a spontaneous memorial. Many wrote messages on them.

Those are now part of an exhibit at the Boston Public Library—but thousands of people added pairs of their own running shoes to an outdoor memorial in addition to cards and flowers over the past few days.

Boston was a tragic reminder that terrorists still seek to do us harm, but the survivors have amazed the country. Brothers Paul and J.P. Norden each lost a leg in the attack last year. Yesterday, CNN reported that they set out to walk the 26.2-mile marathon route with family and friends.

CEI Today: Dodd-Frank ruling, chemicals & bees, and EPA captured

Tuesday, April 15, 2014
In the News Today

DODD-FRANK LOST IN COURT - JOHN BERLAU


Openmarket.org: First Ever Constitutional Ruling against Dodd-Frank Voids Destructive “Conflict Minerals” Section


Monday’s ruling of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals that Dodd-Frank’s “conflict minerals” disclosure mandate violates the First Amendment is the first time ever a court has ruled that a provision of Dodd-Frank violates the Constitution. And it couldn’t happen to a more misguided and destructive provision of the law!

The conflict disclosure mandate creates a compliance nightmare, hurts American miners and manufacturers, and does the greatest harm to those it was intended to help — the struggling worker in and nearby the Democratic Republic of Congo.

CHEMICAL BANS & HONEYBEE HEALTH - ANGELA LOGOMASINI

Openmarket.org: Encouraging News about Honeybee Health


A recently released study in Europe reports some good news about honeybee health, which should prompt public officials to reexamine a recent ban on some agricultural products. This latest study adds another wrinkle to the debate, indicating that the problem is not as widespread as people think, and that other factors are in play, such as cold weather. It underscores why we need to continue to study the issue rather than push rash and unhelpful bans. > Read more

CAPTURING THE EPA - WILLIAM YEATMAN

Globalwarming.org: Matthew Dowd, Meet the EPA


Green groups like the Sierra Club and NRDC have “captured” EPA, in the same way that industry was thought to have done to regulators in the 1960s. These environmental organizations spend significant resources on getting their preferred candidates elected. In return, they enjoy political spoils. The most conspicuous manifestation of this capture is the continuously revolving door between the non-profit, public (i.e., EPA), and private “green” sectors of the economy. > Read more
