Great Americans

Scott Plouse (Mail Call, August 2014, p. 7)
is a great American. We're in! Our $100
has been sent to nra-ila. We thank
God for the steadfastness of purpose
shown day after day by everybody
connected with the nra when so
many of the people we have elected
have betrayed us. Not to mention
some of those groups that claim they
were formed to fight back against this
creeping tyranny. Lead the way, nra,
don't you dare stray from the fight. We
are watching, and we trust you.
Cindy & George Doxey, Jr.
Via email
I read the three letters in the October
issue of America's 1st Freedom (Mail
Call, p. 7) urging members to pledge
$100 to support the nra's efforts
to elect gun-friendly politicians. I
agree wholeheartedly. The best way
to accomplish this goal of getting
donations to the nra is to sign up a new
member and use the Easy Payment Life
Membership Plan (epl). This program
allows a person to pay just $25 per
quarter to the nra toward the cost of
a Life membership. After 10 years, the
new member has paid in full. Many
years ago, I used this program myself.
Then, when the membership was paid
off, I signed up my wife and daughter.
More recently, I did the same for my
son-in-law and my two grandchildren.
Most can afford $25 every few months
and the nra will get much stronger with
new members.

After reading your Mail Call letters from
Mr. Plouse, Mr. Ainsworth, Mr. Novak
and Mr. Lippin (Mail Call, August 2014,
p. 7, and October 2014, p. 7), there is
no time like the present to make an

unconstitutional laws,

annual commitment to contributing
$100 to this most worthy cause. I've
enclosed a check for $100 for the year
2014, and a contribution for 2015 will
be forthcoming in January. Keep up the
good work!

Support For Shaneen

Thanks for your coverage of the plight
of Shaneen Allen, the mother from
Philadelphia who has been ensnared
in the legal machinery of New Jersey
(America's 1st Freedom, October 2014,
p. 30). It really hit home. As a
Pennsylvania concealed carry permit
holder, she is no different from me and
thousands of others. Traveling from
Philadelphia to New Jersey or Delaware
is an everyday occurrence for many and
this could easily happen to any of us.
This case illustrates the need for national
reciprocity legislation, something the
nra has long advocated for. As always, I
am proud to belong to an organization
that speaks up for our constitutional
rights. As I tell others, I joined the nra
for the love of firearms, but I stay for the
love of freedom.
Mark L. Glaeser
Temple, Pa.
I was born and raised in Trenton and I
am appalled by the horrific treatment
of Shaneen Allen for political reasons
by District Attorney Jim McClain. To
imprison Ms. Allen for 46 days, causing
her to lose her job with the possibility
of 3½ years of a mandatory prison
sentence for possessing a firearm she
is legally entitled to carry in her home
state of Pennsylvania is nothing short of
insane. What has happened to certain
public officials?
Pete Laird, Sr.
Falmouth, Mass.

In reference to the article by Ginny
Simone, "Is Shaneen Allen The Victim
Of State-Sponsored Persecution?"
(October 2014, p. 30), thanks for a good
article on an important matter. Several
times in the article, Ginny Simone
wrote that Shaneen Allen "made a
mistake." That is false. Shaneen Allen
did everything correctly. It is the gun
laws of New Jersey which are mistaken.
By enforcing unconstitutional laws, the
arresting officer, the prosecutor and the
judge have become tyrants. In Marbury
v. Madison (1803), Chief Justice John
Marshall wrote "... a law repugnant to
the Constitution is void." It is time to
practice civil disobedience. Resistance
to New Jersey's gun laws is obedience to
the Constitution.
