What Really happened in Las Vegas on (10/02/17)

Emergency Alert! Deep State Preparing To Launch Yemeni Terrorist Attacks In The United States (Video:11/08/17) -- A source told Infowars about possible attacks in the U.S. in the next few weeks. It was an Islamic "Deep State" operation.
Vegas Flight Records Reveal well-planned Air Assault -- there were multiple shooters and they were on the airport runway; the FBI made 30 reservations at Bluegreen Club 36 on Sept. 28, 2017 (Thursday) three-days prior to the shooting (see TV interview with Shepard Ambellas of Intellihub on Alex Jones; 46 minutes into the YouTube (10/31/17)). Also, see Fmr. military intell analyst: 'Saudi Arabian-based risk management company was on the ground during the Las Vegas shooting' (11/03/17). Saudi Deep State Prince Bandar Arrested (friend of the Bush family)

Also, see Nevada Carry, when traveling to Las Vegas.

Also, a permit holder should check the respective states' laws; for example, see Pennsylvania's Attorney General's "Firearm Reciprocity Agreements" & Hot Zones: Where a PA LAGO can and cannot Carry & Local Authority to Regulate Firearms in Pennsylvania (and this is from an anti-gun group stating that PA has Preemption Laws regarding firearms) -- Pennsylvania law provides that "[n]o county, municipality or township may in any manner regulate the lawful ownership, possession, transfer or transportation of firearms, ammunition or ammunition components when carried or transported for purposes not prohibited by the laws of this Commonwealth."1 (Title 18 Pa. C.S.A. § 6120a).

The case law, including from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, has been “crystal clear” that only the General Assembly can regulate firearms and ammunition, as the entire field is preempted. SeeNat’l Rifle Ass’n v. City of Philadelphia, 977 A.2d 78, 82 (Pa. Cmwlth. 2009). In FOAC v. Lower Merion Township, the Commonwealth Court held that, inter alia, the township’s discharge ordinance was unlawful due to state preemption. SeeFOAC v. Lower Merion Township, 151 A.3d 1172 (Pa. Cmwlth. Ct. 2016) (petition for allocatur denied July 11, 2017 ). (Also, see Firearms Industry consulting Group.)

"Preemption laws" are very good for the citizens because it prevents discrimination, especially against minorities who want to protect themselves in big cities such as Philadelphia.

It is a disgrace that the PA Attorney General's Office would issue a letter to citizens stating that Philadelphia is not in their jurisdiction regarding firearms, which contradicts PA Statutes (see email from PA Office below). Really? What are the jurisdictions for the PA Attorney General? This is a "Civil Rights" violation and a disregard to the PA State Legislature.

Does PA honor New Hampshire non-residence permits?

Yes, New Hampshire non-residence permits are honored by PA -- see Email from PA Office of the Attorney General regarding NH Non-Residence permits dated 07/24/17 -- PDF & Email from PA Office of the Attorney General dated 07/25/17 regarding Philadelphia Concealed Carry Laws -- PDF & (County of Berks, Pennsylvania says a "PA Concealed Carry Permit" is valid in Philadelphia) & Hot Zones: Where a PA LAGO can and cannot Carry

Are PA Concealed Carry Permits honored in all counties and cities such as Philadelphia?

The City of Philadelphia has to honor "Concealed Carry Permits" authorized by the Statutes passed by the State Legislature in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania -- see resolution from the City of Philadelphia (Res#110745); although the City is against the pending "National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act" in Congress (Bill H.R. 38 (2017) that should be supported by all citizens & States), it does acknowledge that they honor all reciprocity agreements (25) from the PA Attorney General's Office. The City of Philadelphia also modified its procedures for "Concealed Carry Permits" because of a class action lawsuit in Doe, et al. v. City of Philadelphia (Title 18 Pa. C.S.A. § 6111 (i)). The City of Philadelphia (License to Carry Firearms) -- official site. Yes, even other PA County Sheriffs' Offices (see County of Berks, Pennsylvania says a "PA Concealed Carry Permit" is valid in Philadelphia) understand that the law is uniform throughout PA because of the State preemption law.

Citizen Armor Civvy vestThere are millions of law-abiding citizens, law enforcement and military personnel who are either hunters, competition shooters or both and believe in the original intent of the 2nd Amendment. There are 40 "Right-To-Carry" States (RTC)--36 have "shall issue" laws, which establishes uniform standards established by the State legislature. The States that have "Right-To-Carry" (RTC) have an impeccable record with their licensees. According to John Lott and David Mustard--authors of the book entitled Crime, Deterrence, and Right To Carry Concealed Handguns--States that passed concealed handgun laws their county murders fell by 8.5 percent, and rapes and aggravated assaults fell by 5 and 7 percent. (My cousin in Texas could have been either raped or murdered if she did not pull out her .38 revolver when she was being approached in a parking lot at night--fortunately, the man fled when he realized she was armed!) Gun-free zones (see American Gun Facts & Gun Facts & Texas Firearms Freedom) are open invitation for terrorists or thieves--you should never prevent law-abiding citizens, who have a "concealed handgun" permit, from carrying in a school, university, park or church. (The Virginia massacre might have been prevented if the university did not prohibit students, who have a "concealed handgun permit", to have their weapons on campus--there was a gun incident 5 years ago [Jan. 16, 2002] at Virginia Tech where one student was killed and three others wounded by a 43-year-old student from Nigeria--however, the shooter was subdued by two law-abiding armed students, Tracy Bridges and Mikael Gross; they both had to run to their vehicles to retrieve their firearms.)

Read the excellent article in America's 1st Freedom (NRA publication), Feb. 2017, pages 39-41, entitled National Right-To-Carry Won't Trample States' Rights Because Your Second Amendment Rights Don't End At The State Line. See full article on National Right-To-Carry--PDF. A quote,

...In 1866, Congress passed the 14th Amendment, and it was ratified by the states in 1868. Section 1 of the 14th Amendment bars state or local government infringement of civil rights, such as those enumerated in the Bill of Rights. McDonald, requiring state and local obedience to the Second Amendment, was part of a long line of cases enforcing Section 1....

For example, three secular humanist, God hating States (California, New York and New Jersey) refuse to enter into reciprocity agreements with any of their sister states, and they have no provision allowing a non-resident to apply for a carry permit.

What does Objective Medical Research Show?

In the Journal of the Medical Association of Georgia   Dr. Edgar A. Suter and Dr. Miguel Faria, Jr., a medical professor at Mercer University, published separate articles proving that guns, rather than causing deaths, actually reduce both crime and medical costs.  A few facts from the articles:

  1. 75 lives are protected by a gun for every life lost to a gun;
  2. As many as 5 lives are protected per minute;
  3. Defense with a gun results in fewer injuries to the defender (17%) [any other method including] than evasion (34.9%), physical force (50.8%), and not resisting at all (24.7%);
  4. Jurisdictions which have enacted stronger restrictions on the right of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms generally have higher violence and therefore experience higher medical costs;
  5. After Washington, D.C. implemented in 1976 some of the most restrictive gun laws in the nation, its homicide rate skyrocketed from 26.9 (per 100,000 people) to 80.6—eight times the national average.1

Centers for Desease Control & Prevention (CDC) --study conducted by CDC and carried out by the Institue of Medicine and National Research Council found that individuals involved in violent crimes who defended themselves using techniques other than carrying a gun were more like to be injured when compared to those who were carrying a concealed firearm (06/27/13).

The Real Statistics on the Homicide rates done by Firearms from the FBI (2005-2009)

Note:  Many anti-gun groups use statistics in misleading ways such as not counting a criminal frightened away as defensive, only if the criminal is shot or if a woman shoots a stalker, who was an ex-boyfriend, the anti-gun groups include this as a “domestic homicide” rather than a lawful self-defense. Also, see Gun Saves Lives--see the Self Defense Map of the United States.

“Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunder in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.”   --Thomas Paine, Thoughts on Defensive War, (1775)

"The right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the State shall not be questioned."

Article I, Section 21 (Constitution of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania)

What about Possession and Transporting Hollow Point Bullets in New Jersey?

Yes, but only by the way of exemptions under N.J.S. 2C:39-3.g.2 and N.J.S. 2C:39-6f. (i.e, dwelling, land owned or possessed; while hunting, fishing or target shooting; place of purchase). The exemptions are:

1. N.J.S. 2C:39-3. f., possession of hollow nose ammunition is prohibited unless a person is engaged in activities pursuant to N.J.S. 2C:39-6f. that includes target shooting and hunting.

2. N.J.S. 2C:39-3 subsection g.2, a person can keep this ammunition at his dwelling, premises or other land owned or possessed by him and may carry such from the place of purchase to the above locations. Law enforcement and military are also exempt.

Also, New Jersey alllows magazine capacity of (15) rounds (N.J.S. 2C:39-1y)--this limited magazine capacity is unfortunate.

There have been false arrests by Officers because they are unaware of the exemptions. For more detailed information on the above, see the New Jersey State Police Site on Hollow Point Bullets or The New Jersey Office of the Attorney General for further information on weapons/firearms.

Gun Control Fact Sheet

Every Law-Abiding Citizen should have the following:

1. A semi-automatic sporting rifle [a 5.56 x 45 mm NATO (.223 Rem) or 7.62 x 39 mm in a gas-piston model. Direct gas impingement rifles shoot with more carbon build up and are less reliable and do not shoot as clean as a gas-piston semi-automtic rifle; this is not implying that direct impingement rifles are not reliable if properly cleaned--it depends on your budget and there are some great deals on direct impingement rifles]--Kel-Tec (.223 &.308-Bull Pup), lWI (a great Bull Pup), Sig Sauer, LWRC, POF USA, Ruger, MSAR Bull Pup .233, DPMS-Panther Arms, Stag Arms, PTR Rifle (7.62 x 51mm), Saiga Rifles--high quality Bulgarian rifles (7.62 x 39mm), I.O. Inc.--U.S. made 7.62 x 39mm rifles at a low cost, and (WPA) VEPR 7.62 X 54R--a great Russian Hunting Rifle, etc. There are many great manufacturers that make high quality .223 caliber rifles. The gun manufacturers listed above make compliant rifles for NJ, NY, MA and Hawaii with restrictions on magazine capacity--this is unfortunate. You pay for what you get--the higher priced rifles are better quality. Kel-Tec makes high quality and reasonably priced gas-piston rifles, but there is usually a long waiting period. The rifles mentioned above can be used for hunting in many states (the rifles are multi-purpose). Very large animals usually require .308 or high caliber rifles.

2. Shotgun and Pistol (Mossberg, Glock and Springfield Armory USA are a few popular and reasonably priced guns--there are many others great manufacturers that make great shotguns and pistols. What pistol caliber should I get? I would either get a 9mm or .45 ACP caliber pistol--the ammunition is more available and less expensive. There is nothing wrong with getting a .40 or .357 Sig caliber pistol--you can use the same magazine on a Sig Sauer pistol (just change the barrel); .40 ammunition is about the same price as .9mm. You can get some nice revolvers from Ruger. The caliber of a firearm is determined by the diameter of the inner tube (barrel) of the gun (see Wikepedia on Caliber).

3. U.S. Survival AR-7 (.22 caliber) made by  Henry Repeating Arms

4. A Gunnar Kiermaier's Survival Kit located at www.gdousa.com (Gunnar is also a licensed Firearms Dealer in Pa and near the river across from NJ).

5. Storable Food that has a shelf life of 20 to 25 years (see the Homeland Security Tab and go to the subtitle Survival Sites for the United States Citizen).

6. OFFGRID Magazine --the creators of Recoil Magazine (additional information for surviving a diaster.)

7. NATO SGE 150 Survival Gas Mask from  Inter-American Security Products, Inc. or C50 First Responder Kit Gas Mask (used by all branches of U.S. military) from ReadyMadeResources or MCU 2P Navy/Air Force Issue Gas Mask from JRH Enterprises.

8. A BIble (the most important) and a few books such as A Christian Student's Survival Guide and One World. True peace, safety and freedoms in any nation can come only through submitting and fearing the Supreme Ruler of the Universe (Yeshua Ha-Maschiach--the only true God and only way of salvation). Democracy, civil rights and liberties, constitutional government, religious liberty, private property, helping the poor and alleviating poverty, hospitals, etc. have their roots in the Protestant Reformation (1517). If United States wants no God, then they will have no freedom! Russia and Ukraine want the Bible taught in their schools--this will help their country become very strong.

(Also, see the Police/Sportsmen Tab detailed information on many guns.)

It is impossible to protect your family or nation from heavily armed gangs, terrorists or an invading army with only a shotgun or pistol--you need a semi-automatic rifle (.223 or higher caliber). You should also have a gun safe (NJ exempts gun safes from sales tax). Of course, you should also have a generator (gas, propane or diesel generators are recommended) and other essential items such as the Gunnar Kiermaier's U.S Marine Survival Kits (see the heading below entitled Survival Sites for the United States Citizen on the Homeland Security Tab for detailed listing of survival equipment and generators).

If husbands are not armed to protect yourself and family from terrorist attacks, gangs, looting, national disaster incidents, or a national invasion, then you have not taken Homeland Security seriously and have abdicated your responsibility in protecting your family and country and have disobeyed the Bible. Read article for further details on a citizens' responsibility of being armed entitled Faith and Firearms by Dr. Peter Hammond—PDF or FirePower and Faith.

How to Survive a Theater Style Shooting

YouTube--How to Survive a Theater Style Shooting (The Century Movie Theater May have Violated Colorado's State Law by having "Gun Free" zones known as "Kill" zones) and see article entitled How to Survive a Theater Style Shooting

New Jersey residents must first apply for a "Firearms Purchaser ID Card" in order to purchase a gun, which went into effect in 1966

New Jersey residents have to apply for a "Firearms Purchaser ID Card" in order to purchase rifles, shotguns or handguns under N.J.S. 2C:58-3. You must go to the Police Chief of the municipality where your reside or the Superintendent of the State Police. (The new applications for a New Jersey Firearms Purchaser Identification Card and a New Jersey Permit to Purchase a Handgun is a combined form for both licenses.) The police department should have the forms to fill out and you will have to make an appointment for fingerprinting. The forms can also be printed off the New Jersey State Police website--. see the New Jersey State Police Site on Forms to Download. You can be a non-New Jersey resident and still legally possess a New Jersey "Firearms Purchaser ID Card"--see History of New Jersey Anti-Gun Laws.  (No State resident can purchase a handgun or obtain a concealed carry permit unless one is 21 years of age or older--this requirement is in all States.) (NJ Permanent Statutes.)

The chronological order for the intial "Firearms Purchaser ID Card" process is:

1. Photocopy of driver’s license with photo;

2. Photocopy of Social Security card;

3. Form STS-33 in duplicate

This is the dual application form for the Firearms Purchaser Identification Card and the Permit to Purchase a Handgun. This extensive questionnaire-type form is where you will provide the names and addresses of two reputable persons with whom you are presently acquainted but not related to.

If you plan to purchase a handgun, you must also enter the number of permits for which you are applying. Pistol permits are initially valid for ninety (90) days and may be renewed for an additional ninety days.

4. Form SP-66 in duplicate

This is the Consent for Mental Health Records Search which allows authorities to look into whether you were ever institutionalized.

5. $57.50 fee for fingerprinting

You will receive a form from the police department when you submit your application to schedule an appointment to be fingerprinted through Safran MorphoTrak (formerly known as Sagem Morpho) . NJ should change the law to allow a citizen to pay fee and use the Sheriff's Office, who have electronic fingerprinting.

6. $5.00 fee for the Firearms ID card

This is payable to the Township you reside in or The New Jersey State Police and may be either a check or money order. This is a one-time fee because the ID card is good for as long as you remain eligible to own a firearm in the State of New Jersey.

7. $2.00 for each handgun permit (check payable to Twp. unless you go thru the State Police)

An Example of Instructions from a Twp. Police Dept. for a Firearms Application or Pistol Permit

You will need one permit for each handgun you wish to purchase. This is payable to the Township you reside in by check or money order.

If you already have a "Firearms Purchaser Identification Card" and are apply for a permit to purchase a handgun, you need to fill out Form STS-33 in Duplicate and Form SP-66 in Duplicate.

8. Transfer of a Rifle, Shotgun, etc. in the State of New Jersey (must fill out Certficate of Eligibility form and keep it for your records and the Purchaser would also have a copy--a NJ resident must have a Firearms ID to purchase/transfer a Long gun from/to a private person in NJ and he/she cannot transfer a hand gun (must go through a Firearms dealer). This only pertains to long guns.

How long should it take for an application to be approved or denied?

The applicant should be approved or denied "within 30 days form the date of receipt of the application for residents of this State and 45 days for non-resident applicants." This law is under N.J.S. 2C:58-3(f).

Pennsylvania residents can buy a gun without a special card in PA (they have to show valid identification)--they are still run through an extensive background check via the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) by the licensed dealer and are either approved, denied or put on pending status. The "NICS" was started in 1988 and is operated by the F.B.I.--the operations in NJ are run by the State police.(A licensed firearms dealer must contact the "NICS" via telephone or facsimile and then will receive determination of whether the prospective purchaser would violate Federal or State law.)   Applications for a PA resident “License To Carry Firearms” (LTCF) must be submitted to their county Sheriff’s Office, with exception of Philadelphia where they are handled by the Gun Permits & Tracking Unit of the Philadelphia Police Department. All permits issued by one county must be honored by all counties including Philadelphia.  If the resident or non-resident is approved, they are issued a permit that is valid for 5 years--this should be the method in New Jersey.  The process of obtaining a PA LTCF is very thorough in making sure that permits are not granted to people that may be irresponsible or pose a danger to others. (See Pennsylvania Firearm Owners Association for more information on concealed carry.)  www.pafoa.org

New Jersey makes it harder and more expensive for law-abiding citizens to purchase a firearm; the background check is no different than Pennsylvania's background check when going into a licensed dealer to purchase a firearm (the person is run through "NICS"). Remember that the Nazi Weapons Law (March 18, 1938) is the source of the U.S. Gun Control Act of 1968 (see "Gun Control's" Nazi Connection).

Address change for New Jersey Firearms Purchaser Identification Card (FPIC)--it is called "duplicate firearms purchaser identification card", which has been combined into one form in 2015 (check appropriate block(s))

Under New Jersey Administrative Code 13:54-1.11, a holder of a NJ Firearms Purchaser Identification Card must apply for a change of address with 30 days of such change of address. How to does a person change his/her address and/or a name change? One applies to the Chief of Police in the municipality where the applicant currently resides (new address) or to the Superintendent of the State Police if they police your area. What form must be filled out? Ask for an application for a "duplicate firearms purchaser identification card" and a consent for a mental health records search--this is all that is required under the New Jersey Administrative Code 13:54-1.11 (b). It is not the same application for a Firearms Purchaser Identification Card (you already have the card). To get the two correct forms from the official New Jersey State Police website, click the following: Application for Duplicate Firearms Purchaser Identification Card (no longer used--The Application for Duplicate Firearms Purchaser Identification Card has been combined into one form that has "check appropriate block(s)"--see Firearms ID Cards and Handgun Purchase Permits (STS-33)) and Consent for Mental Health Records Search. These are the only two forms you need. The applicant pays a small fee. Some police departments such as Clinton Twp. Police Dept. were erroneously making people with a FPIC, who recently moved to Clinton Twp., apply for a new FPIC This is stupid and a violation of the law. The Clinton Twp. Police Dept. is also making township citizens, who are applying for a FPIC, to sign a waiver if it takes more than 30 days--this is very unethical. Make sure the police are giving you the correct forms. It should look like the official NJ State Police forms above. If you are having problems with your local police, contact the Association of NJ Rifle & Pistol Clubs of New Jersey.

How to obtain a permit to carry a handgun under New Jersey?

Under N.J.S. 2C:58-4d., a person must satisfy the Court that he/she is:

1. a person of good character and not subject to the disabilities of N.J.S. 2C:58-3c;

2. thoroughly familiar with the use and safe handling of handgun;

3. able to demonstrate "justifiable need."

Unfortunately, New Jersey's Carry Permit law is like the old Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) Constitution where you appear to have rights that in reality you do not have. It should be noted as the U.S., Canada, Britain and Western Europe are throwing the Bible and morality out of the schools, Russia and the Urkraine governments have mandated that Bibles be supplied to all their elementary and secondary school children. In February 2009 Russia's President Dmitry Medvedev noted publicly that Biblical moral education should be required in all Russian schools. Former President Medvedev should be complimented along with President Putin--they are on the right path to establishing a strong and prosperous Russia. Russia and Urkraine are granting more rights to their citizens and the United States is taking more rights away from its citizens. Unfortunately, if the U.S. does not change its ways (repent of its sins), it will keep on declining.

A New Jersey resident has to have "justifiable need" under New Jersey law--justifiable need is an arbitrary and subjective standard which is "judge made law" via a series of anti-gun decisions. The anti-gun judiciary has defined the term under N.J.A.C. 13:54-2.4. This is very shameful, especially in light of the threat of terrorism and illegal and legal immigrant gangs such as MS-13 in our country. If you are citizen, please support bill S. 388, which Senator John Thune of South Dakota introduced--under S.388, if such other State issues licenses or permits to carry concealed firearms, the person may carry a concealed firearm in the State under the same restrictions which apply in the carrying of a concealed firearm by a person to whom the State has issued such a license or permit. You should also lobby your New Jersey State Assembly and Senate over this issue.

Can a New Jersey and other State Residents obtain a Permit to Carry from another State?

Yes, a New Jersey and other State residents can obtain a "Concealed Weapon or Firearm" license from certain States such as Florida (a "shall issue" State). The permit will not be recognized in New Jersey--however, other States such as Ohio, Texas and so on do recognize non-resident Florida concealed carry permits--see Florida Department of Argiculture and Consumer Services official website for reciprocity agreements. Pennsylvania no longer recognizes Florida's "non-resident carry" permits under the reciprocal agreement it has with Florida--PA will recognize a "resident" Florida carry permit. A PA resident must have a valid PA concealed carry permit in order to carry in their State. This was not they case before Feb. 2013 when PA honored non-resident Florida concealed carry permit holders. New Hampshire concealed carry permits are still recognized by PA even if they are non-residents. See New Hampshire Departmen of Safety (Permits & Licenses).

One must have a State issued CFP or CCW from the State they reside in if that State recognizes the validity of the Utah CFP or has reciprocity with Utah in order to obtain the Utah CFP. PA recognizes Utah's CFP; in other words, PA does not have a formal reciprocity (written agreeement) with Utah, but PA recognizes Utah's CFP Statutorily under 6106(b)(15) of the Uniform Firearms Act--it is considered a Statutory Reciprocity. This is no longer the case according to the PA Attorney General--see letter to Utah's Department of Public Safety from Robert A. Mulle, Chief Deputy Attorney General dated May 06, 2014.

(Requirements are stricter for the Utah permit--one has to go thru training only by a certified Utah instructor and an extensive background check. Utah also prohibits concealed CFP holders--in Utah--from carrying concealed carry permit badges.) See list of non-resident concealed carry permits that will be honored in other States.

The previous Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office has made it emphatically clear that there is no change in the reciprocity policy between the two states and that Florida non-resident carry permits will continue to be honored in Pennsylvania--this is no longer the case in PA as of Feb. 2013 unless you are a dual resident or a resident of Florida or other States listed in the reciprocity agreements. You cannot be a "non-resident" permit holder for the State of Florida. (See Office of Attorney General (2013 firearm reciprocity agreements.)

Warning: As of Feb. 4, 2013, PA no longer recognizes "non-resident" Flordia concealed carry permits. The current PA Anti-gun Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane changed the policy--the super PAC funded by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who's anti-God and anti-Constitutional positions are a disgrace to this nation, spent $250,000 (see NYC Bloomberg Super PAC ) to help boost Democrat Attorney General Kane in 2012. You now have to be a resident of Florida for PA to honor the concealed carry permit or a dual resident. You cannot be a New Jersey resident and use your Florida concealed carry permit in Pa. See PA Office of Attorney for new ruling (2013) and Memorandum Agreement between Pa & FL (02/04/13) & Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane Refuses to Enforce DOMA Law (07/22/13).

Former PA Governor Tom Corbett and the PA General Assembly should have intervened and stoped or Impeached the former PA Attorney General Kathleen Kane from rescinding reciprocity agreements (especially Utah's carry permit) and permits recognized statutorily without the Approval of the PA General Assembly

This is what happens when PA elects an Attorney General that does not believe in the original intent of the Constituion and Bill of Rights and is a God-Hater [rejects what the Bible says about right and wrong such as marriage between a man and a women (a creation ordinance in Genesis 2:24)--yes, God determines right and wrong, not man!].

Some non-resident concealed carry permits were still honored by PA such as Utah's Concealed Firearms Permit (CFP) until the former Atttorney General Kathleen Kane in (May of 2014) rescinded non-resident Utah permits in PA (that might be illegal under PA law) according to the blog located at pagunblog.com. An excerpt from the article:

The Attorney General’s office, under state law, has an duty to sign reciprocity agreements in 6109(k):

(k)  Reciprocity.–

(1)  The Attorney General shall have the power and duty to enter into reciprocity agreements with other states providing for the mutual recognition of a license to carry a firearm issued by the Commonwealth and a license or permit to carry a firearm issued by the other state. To carry out this duty, the Attorney General is authorized to negotiate reciprocity agreements and grant recognition of a license or permit to carry a firearm issued by another state.

(2)  The Attorney General shall report to the General Assembly within 180 days of the effective date of this paragraph and annually thereafter concerning the agreements which have been consummated under this subsection.

I’d argue that concurrent with that duty is not to exit reciprocity agreements that have been negotiated under this subsection.

And by clarifying 6109(k) to make clear that the Attorney General may not revise or rescind existing agreements unless the reciprocal state requests it, or there has been a change in the reciprocal state’s statutory law. Most importantly, I think we all need to work to make sure Kathleen Kane becomes a one-term Attorney General.

See letter to Utah's Department of Public Safety from Robert A. Mulle, Chief Deputy Attorney General dated May 06, 2014 & Attorney Joshua Prince to Testify before PA House of Representatives on Impeachment of Attorney General Kane (05/5/14)

Note: Not all local law enforcement in PA is aware of the current reciprocity agreements (PA Attorney General's Official website) with the various States--it is advisable to carry a current copy of the reciprocity agreement with you (with pertinent provisions highlighted) while carrying in Pennsylvania with a Utah or other non-resident permit. If a person is going to carry in PA, I recommend you obtain a copy of the "Pennsylvania Laws Relating to Firearms."  Former PA State Senator John Pippy (37th Senatorial district and West Point Grad) was kind enough to supply a hard copy of the PA laws relating to firearms upon request.

How to obtain a Florida "Concealed Carry" license

To apply for a "concealed carry permit" in Florida via internet, go to the following website: http://licgweb.doacs.state.fl.us/FORMS/FormsRequest790.html

On the form/pamphlet request do the following:

  • Input your address on top.
  • Click "Concealed Weapon or Firearm Application" on the form/pamphlet, which is below the name and address part.
  • Input your e-mail on bottom and submit your request for packet.
  • This in not an on-line application, but a packet that is mailed to you that includes the information you need in order to obtain a "Florida Concealed Carry permit," which is extensive (application forms, Florida's gun laws, proof of training certificate, passport photos, finger prints done by law enforcement, paper work must be notarized, etc.). Florida conducts a background check using the FBI's NICS system.

It usually takes up to 3 months for "Florida's Division of Licensing" to issue a permit. There was no so-called "Florida gun permit loophole" in PA. The media and Attorney General Kane used a misleading term. There were some PA residents that legally carried without a PA LTCF--they were carrying a legally obtained nonresident Florida gun carry permit (FL LTCF), which has a more stringent process to obtain than a PA LTCF.

Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services will mail you a complete packet. Included in the packet will be a set of cards for fingerprinting, which can be done at your local police department.  You will be required to take a "pistol safety" course unless you served in the military. (See Association of NJ Rifle & Pistol Clubs of New Jersey for class announcements--the website is listed below under the "Licensing, Ranges and Training" link. You will go through a strict background check and, if you are approved, will be issued a high quality ID card with picture on it. It is good for seven (7) years before renewal.

New Jersey Sheriffs' Offices should be allowed to offer Electronic Fingerprinting for Citizens for a Fee & Process Concealed Carry Permits

Sheriff Badges

Most Sheriffs' Offices around the country including New Jersey have electronic fingerprinting (digital image), which can be done for concealed carry permit holders as an alternative to the paper fingerprint card or using Safran MorphoTrak for a fee in many states; however, New Jersey will only allow the Sheriffs' Offices to use electronic fingerprinting for criminals being processed, not for law abiding citizens applying for a concealed carry permit, firearms ID or for employment. This law in New Jersey should be changed immediately allowing citizens to pay a fee to the Sheriff's Office for electronic fingerprinting. All right-to-carry permits in NJ should be processed by the Sheriff's Office like other states. See the links below on how to set up an appointment for electronic fingerprinting by a private company, which does not have access to your personal background check.

Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act of 2004 (18 U.S.C. § 926B)

HR218 BadgeCitizen Carry Badge

See Maxarmory.com to obtain badges.

Law enforcement officers and certain military personnel are allowed under this new law the Right to Carry (RTC) in any state or district in the U.S.  If a police chief or superintendent is not permitting you (the law enforcement officer) to carry in another state, the police chief or superintendent could be violating federal law—call the NRA’s division of Civil Rights Defense Fund.   [Note: The law was envisioned to be a bar to arrest and/or prosecution if you are a qualified off-duty or retired law enforcement officer and carrying in another state—however, there have been problems with states such as New York ( a gun hostile state) not obeying federal law. Two (2) recent cases where law enforcement officers were arrested in New York: 1. A Pennsylvania Constable named Rodriguez in 2006 and; 2. A Coast Guard cop named Booth in 2008. In both cases the judge ruled that Rodriguez and Booth were not guilty of a gun crime because under the Law Enforcement Officer’s Safety Act of 2004—a federal law--preempted state law. For further information see American Cop Magazine, September/October 2008 issue, page 16—website: www.americancopmagazine.com .] See the following list below on how a retired peace officer can obtain a concealed carry license:

  • Law Enforcment Officers Safety Act of 2004 (LEOSA)— H.R. 218 and S. 1132 are not the acutal laws per se; USC 18 & 926B (specific active-duty law enforcement) and 926c (pertains to "retired" law enforcement) are the laws created and were improved through the two acts. Yes, if a officer left after vesting in retirement (service after 10 years), but before the required age to collect a retirement are now covered. In other words, you just need 10 years of aggregate service.
  • A retired cop from another state does not have to go back to his/her state to do their yearly qualifications under the LEOSA Improvement Act (a.k.a. Public Law 110-272)--they can qualify in the state they are living in. Unfortunately, the IACP has been against this law because the have their head 'you know where'. Amtrak police, the Federal Reserve and executive branch of the Federal Government are now under the umbrella of LEOSA. Police officers should look at their ID to make sure your agency is in compliance with these laws. See summary on the “Law Enforcement Alliance of America’s” website. There have been allegations that New Jersey has been violating this federal law against NJ retired law enforcement officers living in another State. See summary on the “Law Enforcement Alliance of America’s” website (www.leaa.org).
  • Retired Police CCW (Dr. Bruce Eimer in PA will help Retired Officers qualify in all 50 States under HR218.
  • Carry Permits: Retired Cop in NJ—PDF
  • NJ State Police: Concealed Carry for Retired Cops Application --you can go thru the New Jersey State Police or your local Township Police Dept. (the State Police approves or disapproves the application, not the Twp. Chief of Police). If the superintendent approves a retired officer’s application or reapplication to carry a handgun pursuant to the provisions of this subsection, the superintendent shall notify in writing the chief law enforcement officer of the municipality wherein that retired officer resides. In the event the retired officer resides in a municipality which has no chief law enforcement officer or law enforcement agency, the superintendent shall maintain a record of the approval. Current and retired law enforcement officers are eligible to obtain a permit to carry a handgun without specific justifiable need, pursuant to N.J.S.A. 2C:39-6.l. These permits are administered by the Superintendent of State Police and not subject to judicial review unless the officer was denied and is appealing a denial.

It is highly recommended that retired law enforcement personnel have the National Concealed Carry HR218 Badge to avoid friendly fire and identify yourself. Concealed Carry Citizens' badges (some law enforcement personnel do not like these badges for citizens because they look like law enforcement badges--the State of Utah does not allow concealed carry permit holders to possess them) can also be purchased. There are over 4 million law abiding citizens with carry permits in the U.S. and 1,076,897 police officers carrying pistols. See Maxarmory.com to obtain badges.

Notice to law enforcement: On October 9, 2006, President George Bush signed into law the “Disaster Recovery Personal Protection Act.”  This bill, introduced by Louisiana Senator David Vitter, and then-Representative (now Governor), Bobby Jindal (R), protects gun owners’ rights during times of emergency. It passed Congress with massive bi-partisan support (322-99 in the House, and 84-16) in the Senate.  It is illegal under this new federal law for any law enforcement officer to confiscate law-abiding citizens’ firearms during a civil emergency. [The federal law was the result of Hurricane Katrina (08/29/05) where some cops, feds, and National Guard units used the complete breakdown of civil order as an excuse to harass, intimidate, and physically abuse private citizens—they also confiscated thousands of guns, leaving law-abiding residents of the city with no means of defense against bands of thugs and looters roaming the streets at night (see Soldier of Fortune, September 2008 edition, for article titled The Great Gun Grab, pages 12-18).

Shaneen Allen

Shaneen Allen, an African-American Woman, screwed by New Jersey for having a legally obtained "Concealed Carry License" from PA

A single African-American woman (Shaneen Allen) living in Philadelphia and working two jobs that had been a victim of previous robberies lawfully obtained a "concealed carry permit" in PA. Unfortunately, when she was stopped for a minor traffic violation in New Jersey, she told the Officer that she had a concealed carry firearm in her car--the idiot cop arrested her instead of just informing her that New Jersey does not offer reciprocity to PA residents. Rep. Martin Stuztman has introduced "concealed carry reciprocity" legislation to protect people like Shaneen Allen from politicians who are carrying out KKK policies from the South against African-Americans like they did to Martin Luther King, Jr. Does New Jersey honor driver's licenses from other States?

Tthe corporate leadership at Wal-Mart has disgraced itself by refusing to sell rifles to NJ residents and for not selling any semi-automic rifles that are very popular (they used to be in the stores). President Trump is in office and I hope he shoves it up the Board's rectum for all the free trade polices that they supported such as NAFTA; it has distroyed millions of jobs in the U.S.

"I establish My covenant with you; and all flesh shall never again be cut off by the water of the flood, neither shall there again be a flood to destroy the earth. God said, 'This is the sign of the covenant which I am making between Me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all successive generations; I set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant between Me and the earth'" (Gen. 9:11-13 NASB). This is known as the Noahic Covenant -- there are 4 Covenants in the Bible.

Airsoft and Paintball Guns

Organizations and Articles for help with the Airsoft and Paintball Sport in your high school. [There is no license required for paintball guns or airsoft guns--Federal law preempts State, and local law.  Under U.S.C. Title  15 §  5001, no State or locality may prohibit the sale of paintball guns, pellet-firing air guns or traditional BB guns. A person should still observe safety rules and act responsibly when using airsoft guns--do not bring to school, it can be mistaken for a real gun and is illegal [N.J.S. 2C:39-5e. (3)]. Only a written authorization of the governing officer of the institution, high school, college, etc. exempts a person from bringing a firearm or non-lethal gun on school premises—yes, the governing officer in your high school can grant permission for students in a school sponsored club to possess airsoft guns on school premises or a real firearm for sporting purposes.  Airsoft guns, by law, are required to have an Orange Tip on the muzzle. This is for general purposes only and a person should consult with an attorney or law enforcement agencies on the current laws in your state—laws change.  There are still high schools in this nation that have their own shooting ranges and rifle clubs located on school premises—this was common in New Jersey high schools well into the 60’s.]
