Pennsylvania: “Animal Rights” Activists Shut Down for 2011
Wednesday, December 14, 2011
Yesterday, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives voted to recommit Senate Bill 71 to the Gaming Oversight Committee by a 124 to 69 vote.
As previously reported, several amendments were filed to this legislation which would have eliminated organized bird shooting in Pennsylvania.  While we won the battle, however, the war is not over and the “animal rights” activists will return in January to continue their attacks on this traditional shooting sport.
Don’t forget to forward this alert to your family, friends and fellow supporters of Pennsylvania’s sporting tradition. 

Wyoming: Casper City Council One Step Away from Banning Open Carrying During Meetings!
Wednesday, December 14, 2011
During the most recent legislative session, state Senator Kit Jennings (R-28) of Casper sponsored permitless carry legislation to expand the Right-to-Carry across Wyoming, only to see his hometown now fight to restrict it.  Last week, the Casper City Council voted 5 to 4 in favor of an ordinance to ban the open carrying of firearms during city council meetings.  While nothing has ever occurred to necessitate this proposed ordinance, the city council is one step away from making this ban a reality and will decide its fate on third and final reading at their next meeting scheduled for Tuesday, December 20.  The council will meet at 6:00 p.m. in the Casper City Hall located at 200 North David Street.

This proposed ordinance is not only unnecessary but it is a blatant violation of Wyoming’s firearm preemption law and would open the city to potential lawsuits and litigation.  Under current law, it is illegal for people to carry a concealed firearm in government buildings, while open carry is still allowed. 

Please contact members of the Casper City Council and your state legislators and urge them to respect the state firearm preemption law and protect your Right-to-Carry by opposing this proposed ordinance in Casper.
