FOAC's Weekly Message For Tuesday December 29th 2020 :: 12/29/2020

First, on behalf of the officers and Members of the Board of Directors of FOAC, I would like to wish you wish you a Happy New Year and hope that you had a very Merry Christmas!

Unless you've been living under a rock, we're sure you know what kind of year it has been considering the elections and COVID-19 and considering the outcome of the elections the forecast for 2021 may not be “happy” for many of us.

FOAC's December 2020 Newsletter and Meeting Notice w-Linked Agenda :: 12/12/2020

The December End-of-the-Year FOAC Membership Meeting (Dec. 13th) and Banquet will be in-person ‘and’ online for all members and interested Second Amendment advocates. The stay-at-home order of Gov. Wolf (which is once again in effect), is Constitutionally improper, unsupported by science and an affront to legislative authority and an abuse of power. Click this link for more information on this issue! The banquet is being held at Al’s Café - https://www.alscafepgh.com/ - once again and this restaurant is an icon in Bethel Park (61 Years). We hope you can join us. (All appropriate 'safety' precautions will be taken!)

FOAC's Weekly Message For Sunday November 22nd 2020 :: 11/22/2020

As the legislative session and elections winds down, I took the time to go to the shooting range this past Friday for the first time this year. The trip was ostensibly to cite in my favorite rifle (Springfield Armory M1A) that I just had re-barreled but it was also to collect my thoughts from a long and taxing year, something all of you can appreciate. One of the other individuals on the range talked about how he voted for Joe Biden for a variety of reasons while at the same time stating that Biden wouldn’t take “his guns”! This individual was promptly engaged by several other individuals which I was watching from a short distance. And it occurred to me, that America is supposed to have well over 100 million gunowners and yet Donald Trump only got 73 million+ votes.

As I listened to the discussion with this gun owning Joe Biden supporter being “educated” by other shooters, it became clear that he didn’t have a clue what Joe Biden’s record was on the Second Amendment and that he made no effort whatsoever to even look into it. Yet sitting at his side right there at the shooting bench was a smart phone that is a gateway to an incredible world of information at his fingertips that he chose not to even try to educate himself.

FOAC's Weekly Message For Sunday September 27, 2020 :: 09/27/2020

The past two weeks have seen a flurry of activity in Harrisburg regarding Second Amendment issues and our Constitution.

Two pieces of legislation, HB 1747 and HB 2440, are both poised for passage in the Pennsylvania Senate and awaiting the third reading on the floor.

FOAC's Weekly Message For Sunday August 23rd 2020 :: 08/23/2020

As we continue to struggle with a challenging pandemic, many American cities (Democrat Run) have been under siege. In the midst of all this violence and riots, the rule of law has been abandoned by the same elected officials who swore to uphold it. Law-abiding citizens who found themselves forced to drive through protests have found themselves attacked or left to the mercy of a mob.

Many Americans are indeed now choosing to exercise their Second Amendment rights; a national indicator for gun sales is at an all-time high.

FOAC's Weekly Message For Sunday July 26th 2020 :: 07/26/2020

Politics are real and impactful no matter how much we want to turn our heads away. Politics sets priorities between competing public interests. The process is never perfect. It gets ugly when existing political interests work against your individual rights.

This is why Plato once famously said, “One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.”

FOAC's July 12th Meeting Notice w-Linked Agenda :: 07/11/2020

The July FOAC Membership Meeting (July 12th) will be held once again online for all members and interested Second Amendment advocates. As we noted last month, because of the stay-at-home order and mandatory mask order of Gov. Wolf (which has been reengaged, and in consideration of everyone’s health), we have found it necessary to cancel the in-person meeting and will be holding July’s meeting totally online. The details for connection to this meeting are available here: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84337417548 at the link for the meeting and at the end of this newsletter.

When I use the term Firearm Preemption Law (Title 18, Section 6120), what does that mean to you? It really doesn’t sound that sexy or eye-catching does it? Would it be surprising to you to know that FOAC has been particularly focused on this issue going back into the early 90s? So, what would happen if Pennsylvania preemption law was overturned by the courts?

FOAC's Weekly Message For Sunday June 28th 2020 :: 06/28/2020

With confirmed reports coming in that as many as 2-million Americans have purchased their first gun in just the past six months, some folks are starting to think about the impact that these new Second Amendment enthusiasts could have on the November elections.

As much as I’d love to think that every new gun owner is going to turn into a voter who will prioritize Constitutional Freedoms over party politics, you and I both know that isn’t going to be the case. There will be plenty of left-leaning new gun owners who cast their votes for anti-gun Democrats in November, even if they now object to a candidate’s position on the Second Amendment.

FOAC's Weekly Message For Sunday June 7th 2020 :: 06/07/2020

Beginning in early May we have had to make a choice as an organization to focus on the June 2nd Primary Elections and to that end we have engaged with literally tens of thousands of Pennsylvanians through emails in support of candidates who support the Second Amendment. That is, of course, our main focus but we have run headlong into a horrible problem that is only getting worse ever since the beginning of 2020, interference by big tech.  Big Tech has denied and deleted 'Tens-of-Thousands' of other e-mails because they didn't like the content and our efforts!

That's right, we were denied the ability to communicate with 'Tens-of-Thousands' of MORE 2A supporters in PA because of intentional interference in our efforts and we CAN'T even sue becaue Congress has protected them!!!

FOAC's Weekly Message For Sunday April 26th 2020 :: 04/26/2020

We are fast approaching the June 2, 2020 Primary Election and with all of this coronavirus craziness this has been one of the most chaoticand unpredictable primary elections that I can remember, especially in interacting with the candidates! I find myself constantly shaking my head, after 30 years of being involved in politics, at the lack of preparation of candidates running for office on the issues. If anything, it’s gotten worse!

As an example, our questionnaire asks definitive and probing questions with the desire to see if candidates will take the opportunity to use all of the technological diversity of the current age at their disposal to educate themselves considering the complexity of the gun control debate as well as the intermingled Second Amendment issues. Don’t you think that’s a fair expectation? Perhaps it’s just me, but I marvel at the shallowness of candidate’s thoughts on issues. I only wish each one of you could hear just how unprepared so very many of these candidates are to deal with the countervailing forces in Harrisburg and DC!

FOAC's Weekly Message For Sunday April 12th 2020 :: 04/12/2020

The April FOAC Membership Meeting (April 19th) was originally scheduled to be held tomorrow, April 12th, however it was re-scheduled for April 19th due to the Easter Holiday. Unfortunately, because of the stay-at-home order of Gov. Wolf, and in consideration of everyone’s health, we have found it necessary to cancel the in-person meeting.

Thus far we have had several requests to hold the meeting online, or through the Zoom application where we normally offer everyone throughout Pennsylvania the opportunity to join us already. If you would be interested in doing this please send us a message at zoom@foacpac.org and let us know if you would like to try out that option for April 19 and if you have a preferable time. If we get enough interest, we would be happy to hold the meeting online to bring everyone up to speed with what’s going on.

FOAC's Weekly Message For Sunday March 29th 2020 :: 03/29/2020

We all know we are faced with a difficult time and the developments here in Pennsylvania, along with many other states, has presented us with a situation that has exposed the bias in government regarding our constitutional freedoms. I have wrestled with the many issues we have encountered in the last two weeks because it seems nearly impossible to condense it down into a readable format without making this newsletter nearly impossible to digest!

So, it seemed logical to try and break up and synopsize the issues as much as humanly possible and I will begin with the actions of Gov. Wolf in implementing the shelter in place orders and the essential/nonessential businesses and how it has impacted citizens’ rights.
