Sunday Hunting Legislation Introduced to Legislature

Thanks to you, “Sunday Hunting” legislation, House Bill 1374, has been officially introduced this week and will be making its way through the General Assembly.  As introduced, HB 1374 would give discretion to the Pennsylvania Game Commission to implement Sunday hunting relative to seasons and bag limits in the Keystone state.  Just as they are trusted to make science-based decisions Monday through Saturday, the management of hunting seasons, harvest limits and times on Sundays should rest with the Pennsylvania Game Commission and the wildlife experts who advise it.

SAF Lauds Puerto Rico Court Victory For Gun Rights

A surprising victory for gun rights in Puerto Rico has eliminated the firearms registry and licensing requirements to purchase and carry in the Commonwealth, the Second Amendment Foundation has confirmed.

As of now, according to Sandra Barreras with Ladies of the Second Amendment (LSA), the group that brought the lawsuit, “there is no regulation to purchase or carry (and) all purchases will be handled in accordance with federal firearms regulations.” LSA is affiliated with SAF through the International Association for the Protection of Civilian Arms Rights (IAPCAR).

The class-action lawsuit challenged various articles in Puerto Rico`s gun law, which the court declared unconstitutional. Because of the ruling, Barreras said, Puerto Ricans may now carry openly or concealed without a permit, and they do not need to obtain a permit before purchasing a firearm. . Read more  

Hunting Violation? Think Twice Before Pleading Guilty

Hunting license revocation season is upon us. I've been contacted by a number of individuals in the last several weeks regarding letters they've received from the Pennsylvania Game Commission stating that their hunting licenses have been revoked for the two years or more.

As I've stated in the past and continue to maintain, when you are cited for a hunting violation, DO NOT plead guilty immediately. Seek out the advice of legal counsel. Many individuals are under the impression that by simply pleading guilty they will only be responsible for the fine that is attached. Often times, the officer issuing the citation even leads the person to believe that.  Read more

Lyme disease

Lyme disease is caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi and is transmitted(http://www.cdc.gov/lyme/transmission/index.html) to humans through the bite of infected blacklegged ticks. Typical symptoms(http://www.cdc.gov/lyme/signs_symptoms/index.html) include fever, headache, fatigue, and a characteristic skin rash called erythema migrans. If left untreated, infection can spread to joints, the heart, and the nervous system.  Read more

Passing the buckby John C. Street 

They could see the deer, bits and pieces of him anyway, as he slipped across the side hill, screened for the most part by heavy patches of frost striped blackberry canes and grape tangles.  It wasn’t in a hurry but had obviously been disturbed by other hunters.  It checked its back trail as it came.  Read More
