July 18, 2015:  As reported, the Social Security Administration  is currently developing a program to strip the Second Amendment Rights of over four million Americans currently receiving SSA benefits through a “representative payee.”  Not only would this amount to the largest gun grab in American history, but according to the published report, would take place without any due process protections for recipients, amounting to a nullification of Second Amendment rights for millions of Americans who don’t pose a threat to themselves or anyone else.  

 This new program appears to have been instigated by the SSA in response to a memorandum issued by Obama in January of 2013 which directed all federal agency executives to “improve the availability of records to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).” This memorandum required all agency heads to submit to the Department of Justice (DOJ) a plan for “sharing all relevant Federal records” for submission to the NICS.  

 Evidently, Obama’s SSA bureaucrats read “all relevant Federal records” to mean all Social Security recipients who have a “representative payee” assigned to their accounts to help them manage their payments and receipts. Obviously, many individuals swept up in this egregious case of bureaucratic over-reach would not otherwise be prohibited from owning, possessing, or acquiring firearms under federal law.  

New Hampshire's new HANDS FREE MOBILE DEVICE LAW is in effect (as of July 1st).  You need to be aware of this new law to avoid expensive penalties for violations and to be a safer driver.  One of the best places to learn about this new law is the NH Driving Towards Zero website, who's goal is to minimize traffic accidents and deaths.  Below are some of the key points from their website.  You should be aware of these points, as well as some of the related facts.  Following this information WASR provides you a link to the full law from the state of NH.



HERE ARE SOME KEY POINTS OF THE LAW:

  • No use of hand-held electronic devices capable of providing voice or data communication while driving or temporarily halted in traffic for a stop sign or traffic signal or other momentary delays
  • This includes cell phones, GPS, tablets, iPods, iPads or other devices that require data entry
  • Emergency calls to 911 or other public safety agencies will be allowed
  • Bluetooth or other hands-free electronic devices will be allowed
  • One hand non-cellular 2-way radio use will be allowed
  • Teen drivers under the age of 18 will not be allowed to use any electronic devices (hand-held or not) except to report an emergency. Anyone violating this will be subject to penalties and license suspension or revocation.
  • If your vehicle is not equipped with Bluetooth functionality, over the ear devices can be purchased or aftermarket systems can be installed in your vehicle.

Now through Sunday June 21st... it's the 92nd Anniversary of Motorcycle Week in New Hampshire.  Motorcycling is more popular than ever…and with it comes the thunder of thousands of bikes and activities of all kinds, especially in and around the Lakes Region.  

While the races were what the event was all about in the past, now there are a vast number of activities and events all around…even for non-riders.  For many, the week is now about camaraderie and just getting together with fellow motorcyclists to socialize and ride.  

The week is full of events including the Biker Build-Off / Motorcycle Displays & Demos / Charity Rides and Group Rides / Band Concerts and Music / Fireworks at the Weirs on Wednesday / and of course, the Races!  If you don't want to miss any of the activities, or are just curious about all the events...For the 2015 BIKE WEEK EVENT SCHEDULE - CLICK HERE!

Sunday April 5th Christians throughout the world celebrate Easter ...the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is typically the most well-attended Sunday service of the year for Christian churches. Sunday morning service times vary, including sunrise services. Contact local churches directly for times and more information.  

Easter is really an entire season of the Christian church year, as opposed to a single-day observance. Lent, the 40-day period leading up to Easter Sunday, is a time of reflection and penance and represents the 40 days that Jesus spent alone in the wilderness before starting his ministry, a time in which Christians believe He survived various temptations. 

The week preceding Easter is called Holy Week and includes Maundy Thursday, which commemorates Jesus' last supper with his disciples; Good Friday, which honors the day of his crucifixion; and Holy Saturday, which focuses on the transition between the crucifixion and resurrection. The 50-day period following Easter Sunday is called Eastertide and includes a celebration of Jesus' ascension into heaven.

In addition to Easter's religious significance, it also has a commercial side. The Easter Bunny, egg hunts, mounds of jelly beans and marshmallow chicks that appear in stores each spring have become a standard part of this holy holiday. HE IS RISEN !!!
