For those who don't, I sent an extra $20 donation to scopeny and they give you a repeal the safe act sign... I put it up and one scumbag neighbor called the town building inspector to complain. I got a letter for being in violation of a town code. As per advice on this forum from nyshooter I could fight it on grounds of my 1st amendment rights... so I called the town BI and after telling him ill fight it in court he asked what kind of sign it was so I said a pro2a sign so he said leave it up. A week or so later he called me back because the **** nrighbor cried again and I said that I'm leaving it up. A day or so later my sign went missing (stolen, and probably by the *******s). So I wanted to buy a trail cam first so I could catch the thief and press charges(can't justify spending the money on one yet) before putting up another sign but I decided to make a sign of my own with plywood and I'm going to drive a couple 2x4 stakes in the ground so someone would have to really work to remove it.. here is a picture of the sign... tomorrow ill get a pic of it installed. Btw the stencils took quite a while to make and I rushed the paint work because I didn't want to wait for one side to dry filly before doing the back side (both sides are the same).20130906_182544.jpg
ok everyone. im going to keep any pertinent updates right here so its easy for everyone to be up to speed.
the long story short is i sent a donation to SCOPENY for one of their yard signs about repeal the safe act. i put up the sign and it disappeared. so i built a sign out of plywood and 2x4's and that went missing. after donations from all of you we got a trail cam and then a third sign went missing. i moved the trail cam and changed the settings and the 4th sign went missing just yesterday!
i was completely blown away when i saw it was the local PD that was taking my signs. i have a lot of respect for LEO's in general and have friends who are on the job. but this individual gets ZERO respect from me. i never received a citation of any sort for my sign being up, the LEO never knocked on my door to ask about the sign as my wife is home all day with our children.
so, i merely wanted to spread some awareness in my little corner of the world about our 2nd amendment rights only to find out that my 1st, 2nd, and 5th dont mean much to some people. its very disappointing.
ill be calling in to the Melody Burns radio show on AM 1300 (Albany) at 4:05 today guys so tune in to listen.
to try to keep some updates in this first post for people just jumping into the story...
i did two radio interviews yesterday with upstate NY radio hosts Tom Baurle 9-24 Tom Bauerle Show Hour 1
and Melodie Burns at about 4:05PM (dont have a link for that one).
ive been contacted by Foxnews.com and gave them a phone interview and pictures
i did a short interview for local Westchester News 12 last night that will air today at 5pm (i dont think i was at my best though so my fingers are crossed I came off as intelligent, my little guys were running around so it was hard to stay focused).
i have been contacted by a nation media outlet for an in studio tv interview and im working out scheduling and will announce when its set.
SCOPENY set up the radio interviews yesterday and are sending me some more free signs which is greatly appreciated! They have offered their support if needed additionally as well. So i would like to thank you to Steve Aldstadt for that!
ill try to keep good updates in this post so people dont have to read all the pages to get the gravy.
EDIT 9/26. Will do in studio interview with FOX AND FRIENDS tomorrow morning.
