FOAC's Weekly Message For Saturday March 5th 2022 :: 03/05/2022

As we watch history unfold, we are seeing it repeat.

I am astounded at how quickly the President and the media have switched their focus from “sickness, doom, and gloom” and very unpopular oppressive mask mandates to Russian threats to “democracy”.

Traveling outside of Pennsylvania makes me appreciate our home State; especially when it comes to being able to arm myself to be able to potentially defend “my son’s daddy”.

FOAC's Weekly Message For Friday February 4th 2022 :: 02/04/2022

Since our last installment we have seen success in the PA Legislature, falling bridges in Pittsburgh, horrible weather, bad roads, and Governor Wolf once more advocating for elected officials to break the law.

A CALL TO ACTION CONTACT GOV. WOLF AND URGE HIM TO SIGN HB979 INTO LAW :: 01/26/2022

A CALL TO ACTION, PA HB979 Strengthening Preemption PASSES the Senate.

CONTACT GOVERNOR WOLF AND URGE HIM TO SIGN HB979 INTO LAW!

 

Last night, the Pennsylvania Senate passed HB979 (32 YEAS 17 NAYS). This legislation was first introduced in the House by Rep. Matt Dowling. We would like to thank all of the Representatives and Senators that have upheld the Constitution and recognized that Elected Officials should be held accountable if they violate Article 1 Section 21 of the PA Constitution and Title 18 Section 6120. We also would like to congratulate all the dedicated FOAC Members, gun owners, and concerned Citizens that contacted their Reps and Senators urging them to support this legislation. Although we view this as a victory, our work is not done.

FOAC's Top Weekly News Stories for the week of January 22, 2022 :: 01/22/2022

I have traveled across the Country training instructors to teach our fellow Americans to take on the responsibility of becoming their own family first responders. Many of the states in the Northeast USA, are a “no go” for me if I arm myself with a firearm for my own personal safety.

When I do travel with my firearm it can be very stressful and taxing to be vigilant inorder to avoid danger, potential criminals, and conflict. It is also almost equally stressful and taxing to be careful not to end up in a place where my being armed is against the law. I must protect myself from the law too.

FOAC's Weekly Message For Friday January 7th 2022 :: 01/07/2022

It is hard to believe that we are already approaching the end of the first week of 2022. I appreciate that a few days ago President Biden said he has reasons to be optimistic in 2020, but there are many things that should be recognized here and now in 2022 in order for us to continue the hard work of pursing Liberty and fighting for individual Rights.

FOAC's Weekly Message For Friday December 24th 2021 :: 12/24/2021

2021 has been another year for the books. I guess that goes without saying no matter the date. However, we have seen good and bad come from our fellow citizens and elected officials as we continued the fight and struggle to maintain and expand our most basic rights and liberties.

In 2021, the FOAC Institute of Legal, Legislative, and Executive Action (FOAC-ILLEA) was unveiled, we held the “Return of the Gun Bash”, Kim and Jim conducted many legal seminars, Kevin and Bob passed out literature and introduced may people to what FOAC is about, voters guides were published, candidates were interviewed and endorsed, videos were published, many legislators consulted Kim and FOAC leadership about legislation, we received a wonderful judgement from the PA Supreme Court in the Harrisburg preemption litigation (thank you Josh Prince), we worked with Rep. Metcalfe to put on another successful rally in Harrisburg, we helped to push Constitutional Carry to the desk of the Governor, Chip chaired marathon monthly meetings, the FOAC membership has grown, Dale collected EVERY receipt, many opinion pieces were written lots were published, officers, board members and volunteers have taken on more responsibilities to get things done, Herb “told it like it was” and Danielle made sure “it happened”, we helped to educate multitudes of our fellow Pennsylvanians, Kim and others spent MANY days meeting and consulting with Legislators, Kim was interviewed countless times by the media, volunteers helped us further the mission, and I may have just written the longest run-on sentence in FOAC history!

FOAC Response to Gov. Tom Wolf’s Veto of SB565 Constitutional Carry :: 12/05/2021

PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE DISTRIBUTION

FOAC's Weekly Message For Sunday November 28th 2021 :: 11/28/2021

In 2011, FOAC pioneered the writing and introduction of Constitutional Carry to the Pennsylvania legislature (as we have done with many bills) with the intent of making Pennsylvania a more constitutionally free and safer society! One of our board members, Rep. Aaron Bernstine, introduced Constitutional Carry in the House of Representatives last session and this session (HB 659) and was joined this session by Sen. Cris Dush (SB 565).

As I’m sure you know, SB 565 passed the Pennsylvania Senate and House of Representatives, in bipartisan fashion in both bodies. To see how your legislators voted, check out the links below:

FOAC's Weekly Message For Sunday October 24th 2021 :: 10/24/2021

Before I begin with this week’s newsletter, I would like all of you to keep in your hearts and your thoughts and your prayers the name of Jim Devlin. Jim passed away approximately a week ago. He was not only a good friend but he was a quietly intense warrior for the Second Amendment who was tireless in his devotion to holding legislators accountable and the man who would volunteer to help in any way that was needed without expectation of reward! I know I will miss him and the Second Amendment community is a little less bright because of his passing!

This past week the Pennsylvania Supreme Court delivered a decisive blow against the machinations of the city of Harrisburg in trying to keep us out of court over their preemption law violations. This has been a six-year journey that began in 2015. We should all think the excellent, hard work of Joshua Prince and his legal talents at continually pressuring Harrisburg through the courts.

FOAC's Top Weekly News Stories for the week of October 3, 2021 :: 10/08/2021

This edition of the FOAC Newsletter will certainly look different than normal. FOAC President, Kim Stolfer was unable to write it this week as he is traveling all over the Commonwealth educating our fellow Pennsylvanians, Citizens and Elected Officials alike, about laws, legislation, and responsible gun ownership. I was tasked with taking the “mighty pen” and running with it!

This week is our “Return of The Gun Bash”. There are many officers and volunteers who have been working tirelessly to organize the Bash. The FOAC gun bash, we are proud to say, is one of the best bashes in the country and it is our biggest fund raising event of the year. Last year, with its barrage of governmental overreach, lockdown orders and house arrests, we were unable to do the bash in person. Our virtual bashes did very well but it wasn’t the same as the in-person event where we could fellowship with our fellow Liberty Loving Pennsylvanians.

FOAC's Weekly Message For Sunday September 26th 2021 :: 09/26/2021

One of the most disquieting and unsettling things that has been and is going on in the Second Amendment community is the undercurrent of some “representatives” of Second Amendment groups and organizations thinking that being belligerent, arrogant, and ignorant with legislators and their staff somehow makes them better friends. Quite frankly, if I kicked one of my friends in the family jewels it is hard for me to believe that he is going to be a better friend. But that is what is going on in Harrisburg and other capitals across America.

This age of incivility to each other seems to have expanded to the point that reason, common sense, and a well-informed debate no longer is necessary and I believe it has reached toxic levels! We’ve all seen how different groups have destroyed cities, taken lives, and pretty much bludgeoned their way into the public debate and we cannot, in my opinion, allow that to occur in the debate over gun control and the Second Amendment!
