PoliticsPA recently put Kim Stolfer
Kim Stolfer, Chairman of FOAC, Pennsylvania’s largest pro-gun Politi- cal Action Committee, on it's list as one of PA’s
best political activists. After hearing his talk at the February meeting, that designation comes as no surprise. As a Marine in Vietnam in the 70s, Kim took his oath to “...support and de- fend the Constitution against all enemies, for- eign and domestic…” very seriously. Thirty years later he still takes that oath to heart as he prowls the corridors of power in Harrisburg and Washington, DC. in his efforts to educate state and federal legislators as to their respon- sibilities to support and defend citizen’ rights.
The Executive Board voted to table the ap-
plication for a Growing Greener grant for stream stabilization activity on Little Chartiers Creek until the directors can better understand the full impact of the commitments the Club would be undertaking.
DMSC will conduct a Hunter Safety Pro-
gram on Friday, May 12, 5:30PM-9:00PM, and Saturday, May 13, 8:30AM-5:00PM (lunch will be provided). Participants must attend both sessions. The fee is $5 and pre-registration is required. To register call George Dietz, (412) 344-4027, or Chuck Augenstein, (724)941- 9538.

At the February CMP shoot, George Sum-
mersgill shot a 556/600. That’s not too shabby, considering George shot it on his 80th birthday!
Kim uses a two-fisted approach to reach legis- lators. An example of his pro-active methods is the trip he organized for a March 14 visit to Harrisburg to spotlight the introduction of new legislation, as well as legislation already in pro- gress, that will restore rights and the accompa- nying dignity to homeowners and gun owners alike. This legislation includes three areas Kim has worked on diligently over the past year or so.
HB 2231. This bill supports the
’castle doctrine’ that permits a home- owner to defend himself from intruders without having a duty to retreat . It gives the victim the right to stand his ground and meet force with force. It also pro- hibits prosecution for defending your- self, lawsuits by a criminal who was in-

SOMETIMES AN IDEA WORKS, SOMETIMES IT DOESN’T
Last issue we intended to provide the electronic issue of the Notes to readers via email, using a link to the DMSC web site where the Notes has a permanent home. It sounded great, but our test mail-out didn’t work for everybody. So this time we’re going to try the KISS approach and keep it simple with a suggestion from member Paul Guzan, who said just let me know when I can look the newsletter up on the web site. So that’s what we’ll do this month. Thanks for your patience.
