Patti Coombs and Bob Roche

Members, Pike County 2nd Amendment Sanctuary

More Info Coming Soon

Come join us and learn about true grassroots efforts and how you can make a difference in your community on the local level, where it all-stars. Our Second Amendment rights are an integral part of our freedoms here within the United States and vital to Pennsylvania. Keeping and preserving you rights also stems from getting the right candidates elected in your townships. We want to show you how you can protect your Second Amendment rights and how to help candidates get elected that will protect those rights. To date we have gotten 9 townships within Pike County to pass Second Amendment Sanctuary Resolutions and on September 21, 2022, we got the Pike County Commissioners to Pass a Second Amendment Sanctuary Resolution for the County. And on September 29, 2022, the Wayne County Commissioners signed it as well, which we were very happy to help them get accomplished. We are the Pike County Second Amendment Sanctuary, but we can show you how to do this in your townships. We will show you how regular people (like us) can get involved and make a difference. Let’s do what our founding fathers intended and make them proud. So come out and meet us and let us show you what we’ve done and what you can do too.

DC Project, Women for Gun Rights

DC Project, Women for Gun Rights

More Info Coming Soon

Read more at dcproject.info

Our efforts are to raise awareness among community members, including legislators, that firearms safety and violence prevention are achieved through education not legislation. Encourage the preservation of America's gun culture, from conservation and commerce to competitive sports, hunting, and self-defense. Highlight the diversity and rising demographic of female gun owners through ongoing advocacy because gun rights are women’s rights.

One of DC Project’s proudest achievements has been to provide testimony in firearms-related hearings. The DC Project was asked to testify in a third hearing on “Steps To Reduce Gun Violence” in the House Judiciary Committee. We believe that our voices are powerful and provide armor against attacks on the 2nd Amendment. I invite you to join us in building an army of women that support their right to protect themselves and their families. We provide a counter voice and counter visual to the aggressive and misinformed anti-gun women’s groups like Moms Demand Action.

Pastor Gary W. Haskell, Sr.

Senior Pastor; Jackson Baptist Church, Jackson, PA

More Info Coming Soon

The fact is, our American Revolution would have never happened if it were not for the pastors in New England. They were the ones that preached freedom and taught their people about their God-given rights. They also taught their men how to take up arms and fight against the British. We are free because of their preaching and leadership. Our schools have not, and do not teach anything about these American heroes. Pastor Haskell has a major concern about getting this information to as many patriots as possible.
