Not My Governor! Wolf is going full commie!!!


Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf sent a letter to the Pennsylvania Congressional delegation praising recent gun safety measures in the federal omnibus bill and pushing for further action, including banning military-style weapons like the one used in the Parkland shooting tragedy.
The governor also proclaimed Saturday, March 24, “March for Our Lives Day” in Pennsylvania with many local events planned in the commonwealth in support of the Washington D.C. march. March for Our Lives supporters are primarily young people asking their representatives to make their safety a priority and address gun violence in our schools and communities.
The governor’s letter echoed the sentiments of march organizers by applauding students throughout the country who participated in the March 14 walkout and “passionately speak out and demand action in response to the terrifying reality of gun violence in our nation.”
The letter states, “I write today to thank you for listening to these students and taking important steps to prevent another tragedy like the one in Parkland, but also to urge you to take additional action to ban military style weapons that have been used to commit these heinous crimes.”
Gov. Wolf’s letter conveys support for the spending bill’s “several commonsense, bipartisan measures that, while long overdue, are a step in the right direction.” These include the STOP School Violence Act of 2018 and critical tools in the bill to coordinate training for teachers, school officials, and law enforcement.
The letter also mentions the Fix NICS (National Instant Check System) Act to help prevent individuals with a history of mental illness or criminal convictions from buying firearms.
“Our commonwealth’s background check system – Pennsylvania Instant Check System (PICS) – is one of the top systems in the nation and federal funding played an important role in what makes PICS work so well. Not all states and federal agencies have such an effective system in place and I know firsthand the limited resources governors must work with. Additional federal funding is crucial.”
Gov. Wolf expressed his support of the bill’s clarification for the Centers for Disease Control and other agencies to conduct research on the causes of gun violence, something that stopped via the passage of the Dickey Amendment in 1996’s omnibus spending bill. Former Arkansas Representative Jay Dickey, for whom the amendment is named, has said that research would not infringe on the rights of gun owners and can and should continue because “doing nothing is no longer an acceptable solution.”
The governor also called for bans on military-style weapons and accessories, such as the AR-15 and bump stocks.
“Law enforcement officials throughout the commonwealth support these bans. They know that ending the sale of these weapons will make our communities safer. Had Congress not allowed a ban on these weapons to expire in 2004, the deaths that have occurred in Orlando, Las Vegas, Sandy Hook or Parkland may have never happened. These tragedies are becoming far too common. You must act to prevent another town being added to this list.
“I know that these measures will not prevent all tragedies. However, we cannot use that as an excuse to not act to protect our constituents.”
A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."
Is he really that fucking stupid????  Damn, we need to get him out of the office and get someone in there who can think for himself instead of jumping on everyone else's coat tail.

He made no secret about his political policies even before being elected.  Blame the Democrat controlled urban centers for electing this joker into office and the "middle of the road" people who bought his BS and were pissed at Tom Corbett.  The Commonwealth is working hard at going blue regardless of what rural sectors might think about it.
