FOAC's Weekly Message For Sunday March 28th 2021 :: 03/28/2021

It wasn’t all that long ago, politicians on both sides of the aisle and members of the media would castigate those who dared politicize an atrocity such as what happened in Boulder, Colorado. Unfortunately, it appears, those days are long gone, and we must now endure the immediate politicization of nearly every murderous attack. Democrats from Joe Biden to Charles Schumer to Nancy Pelosi and on down, almost unanimously, blame the Second Amendment, disgracefully scapegoating a fundamental constitutional right that the vast majority of law-abiding American citizens legally engage in and depend upon.

“I don’t need to wait another minute, let alone an hour, to take commonsense steps that will save lives in the future and to urge my colleagues in the House and Senate to act,” Biden bombastically proclaimed in response to the tragedy! “We can ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines in this country once again.”

Public Statement Clarifying Our Position on Behalf of the Officers-BOD of FOAC :: 03/17/2021

I am writing to clear the air about the most recent confusion surrounding the press release of 3/15/2021 titled “Rep. Amen Brown, Eagle Arms, Polymer 80 Kits and Violent Criminals”.

Firearms Owners Against Crime has not, is not, and will not advocate, promote, or support the registration or banning of any gun part, accessory, unfinished lower, parts kits, kit gun, magazine, or any piece of plastic or metal. Although FOAC supported and supports Eagle Arms as a private company that made hard and unpopular policy decisions about their own shows, we will not stand by while insinuations are made that cast a shadow of doubt upon our unwavering belief that the 2nd Amendment and Article 1, Sections 21 and 25 of the Pennsylvania Constitution shall not be questioned or infringed. Firearms Owners Against Crime supports law-abiding American’s right to purchase parts, kits, accessories, unfinished kits, etc. using cash or any form of payment that the seller and buyer agree upon.

FOAC's Weekly Message For Sunday January 24th 2021 :: 01/24/2021

I find it curious that for the last 50 years all we have heard out of the media and bleating, exploitive anti-gun politicians is that we must enact more gun control to protect American citizens. Setting aside for the moment, the fact that gun control is really an expression of our “so-called” leaders advancing legislation to not only take away citizens’ rights but to establish that citizens can’t be trusted, the fact is that there is an insatiable appetite for completely eliminating the Right to Keep and Bear Arms! The runaway Pelosi political paranoia, that is talked about later in this newsletter, has been evident across the last five decades by far too many elected members of Congress. Some have even expressed ambivalence about allowing citizens to own firearms because of the number of trained retired veterans that arrived there who know how to use them.

With the above being said, I want to point out that the entire gun control debate has essentially been nonexistent for the last 6 to 8 months at a minimum. Between the riots in the various cities and the incredible addition of over 8 million Americans as new firearms owners it seems that Democrats were trying to hide and suppress discussions of gun ownership and the Republicans didn’t have the courage necessary to bring it up and force the issue and the pull the Democrats out of the shadows.

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.

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 June 14th Meeting Notice w-Linked Agenda :: 06/13/2020
