NY State wants to know your social media password

S09191 addresses the ownership of a handgun. It proposes that for any revolver or pistol license to be approved or renewed, the applicant must first “volunteer” their passwords to all social media they may have, or had, for the prior 3 years for review. In addition, the applicant must allow a search of their internet activity via search engines for the prior year. The scope of the “voluntary” search is limited to Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram, and search engines Google, Yahoo and Bing.

2018 Midterm Election Results and Projections

“The midterms marked another milestone on America’s comeback trail,” said Carl Gottstein, life member and Assistant Manager at New York State Rifle and Pistol Association. “By increasing the GOP hold on the US Senate while democrats were grasping for the lower house, the movement has won another important victory: locking in Trump’s ability to seat judges and protecting him from impeachment.”

Militia Understanding: The journey continues

Still one could make the argument that it was a different time back then, that things are more established and we have “official” government roles created which have made the need for a militia obsolete. But I really wonder, what actually happened to the idea of the militia? If in the late 1700s, every man was the militia, every man held the honor and responsibility that came from being the nation’s defenders. why didn’t that concept stand the test of time?

Sheepdogs-Protection from the Wolves

We live in a country with declining morals, sadly, and multiple issues with mental health, domestic violence, and a general angst (which is derived from the word anxiety). I work in Portland Oregon and I can tell you I do not allow my family to do any business there. It breaks my heart because it (used to be) a great city. Many of the bad actors you see around the country only need one excuse in their mind and you have a breaking news story at your place of worship. This can include a disgruntled member, a spouse who just got served papers (more on that in a bit), or any other person who is not thinking rationally and without a moral compass. So what can be done … one word: SHEEPDOG.

Mid-Term Elections-We Didn’t Win, Now What?

So, we got knocked down.  We can choose to let it defeat us and give up or we can get up and act.  Complaining does nothing and only serves the oppositions interests.  Because if your complaining your not acting.  If you are not acting you are not gaining support for your cause.  So, let’s stop with the threats and pull ourselves up and start acting to change our results.
