Watchdog.org - Gun owners shut down governor 

Hollywood Mom Blog

 

A governor messed with gun owners and lost

The state House of Representatives on Wednesday voted, 87-3, to enact a pro-gun measure — one of the 15 House bills Gov. Mary Fallin vetoed Tuesday. Leading the charge for the override was the Oklahoma Second Amendment Association and founder-president Tim Gillespie. In lockstep with the group, at least on this issue, was the legislative Democrat most likely to oppose Fallin in the November general election.

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.

Defund Holder's gun bracelet scheme
The Obama Administration wants to spend hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to develop a wrist band that has a computer chip which corresponds like a lock and key with a computer chip in a corresponding gun.

Paying too much at the grocery store and at the pump? You can thank the Fed
Since 2000, household median income measured by the Census Bureau has only averaged 1.77 percent growth. In the meantime, the prices of staples like food and energy have been skyrocketing — at 6.8 percent and 16.18 percent, respectively.

Perry and Biggs: The '77 cents on the dollar' myth about women's pay
"Then there is the issue of marriage and children. The BLS reports that single women who have never married earned 96 percent of men's earnings in 2012. The supposed pay gap appears when marriage and children enter the picture."
