Did my impression of Philo Beddoe this morning. Woke up near the US Marine Corps War Memorial in Arlington and couldn't resist the urge to jog over there, even if I was in jeans and an undershirt. #GetSome #SemperFi

Thank you +Brad Reloaded​ for bringing this to my attention.

SB 701 needs to be shredded!

Dear Mr. Regan,
I'm writing to let you know that the introduction of SB 701 last week into the Judiciary Committee causes me great concern for the future of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the United States of America, as a whole.  
Please know that I vehemently oppose any such legislation. I'm interested in your thoughts on the matter of this proposed bill.
Restrictions like this are excellent example of how the progressive left's crown jewel- background checks on purchases- does not work.  Clearly, if background checks did work, there would be no need for additional restrictions to our God given right to self defense, as guaranteed on the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution.  
Section (h) of this proposed bill is very concerning, regarding requirement of a purchase history check for prospective gun buyers.  This is tantamount to a gun registration and cannot stand!  
I enjoy all the freedoms supported in the Commonwealth today, and very much desire to only create MORE freedoms- by reducing government induced restrictions.
In my opinion, the sponsors of this bill should be removed from office and immediately be brought up on charges for violation of Oath of Office.
Thank your for your continued efforts to preserve our second amendment rights.

Sincerely,
E. F. Tyson

PA folks, it's time once again to contact your local representatives!

Senator Haywood reintroduced SB701 in PA
Last Action: Referred to JUDICIARY, April 6, 2015 [Senate]
An Act amending Title 18 (Crimes and Offenses) of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes, in firearms and other dangerous articles, providing for a limit on handgun purchases and sales; and establishing the Violence Prevention Account within the General Fund.
Subject: Limit purchases of handguns to one per person per 30-day period, with exceptions
In the near future I plan on introducing legislation that would limit the purchase of handguns in the Commonwealth to one per person per 30-day period, with exceptions. This bill is aimed at protecting the 2nd amendment by reducing the gun trafficking that would otherwise put guns in the hands of dangerous individuals. This bill is a re-introduction of SB191 of the 2013-2014 Session.
This bill would limit purchases of handguns in the Commonwealth to one handgun per individual within any 30-day period. The limits on purchases would not apply to: a licensed firearm dealer, a licensed firearm collector, law enforcement, correctional facilities, a licensed private security company, sale of antique firearms, or a person who loses or has stolen a firearm, so long as, there is a police report provided to the seller. The seller of a handgun would be required to complete a handgun purchase history check with the State Police.
The bill would make violation of selling or purchasing more than one handgun in a 30-day period a third degree misdemeanor; however, if a person has been sentenced for selling or purchasing more than one handgun in a 30-day period, the violation would be a third degree felony. Additionally, any fines or fees imposed would be deposited into a Violence Prevention Fund in the State Treasury, which would be used for grants to police to prevent gun-related injuries.
Please join in me cosponsoring this legislation designed to help reduce the number of guns in our communities.
Previous cosponsors of this bill include: Farnese, Fontana, Tartaglione, and Williams.

Recently went in here with my family of 4. Great service, which I think is rare these days in most (especially chain) restaurants. The food was excellent. They do good by kids, too, with their kid's meals. We'll be coming back regularly, I think.

Good hotel. I used the fitness room. The elliptical machine was pretty worn out, and not very sturdy when it was new, I would guess. The fitness room wad decent, but missing a trash can for the disinfecting wipes. Hotel was comfortable and within walking distance of a couple of restaurants.

couldn't be more unhappy...and didn't even get a chance to stay there. After booking rooms here for my 4 man team, weeks in advance, and due to some job related schedule delays, we called front desk prior to check in about the option of cancelling. THhey were inflexible and rude about it since I was calling after the 24 hr advance notice deadline. So, that's understandable, and that commits me to getting my team there no matter what, or lose the money on the rooms. When we finally get there after midnight, (and have to be rolling back out of that hotel by 7am) the clerk (who was not at all interested in being quick about anything at that hour) couldn't find reservation, even with me readily providing confirmation number information....then told me I already checked out at 2pm that day [Not true], and then started handing out room keys to my team members....minutes later, they came back to front desk saying people were already in those rooms.... Which meant: the hotel now had ZERO rooms to give us! So, with no place to stay and the clock ticking on a 7am mobilization, we called across the parking lot to Homewood Suites. They had rooms, and now I had to pay more than planned, but it sure was a nice hotel to stay at for only about 6 hrs. Comfort Suites staff couldn't have handled this more poorly if they tried to.

If they're aiming for mediocrity, they've nailed it.. Food was okay. Service was decent. Bathroom was out of paper towels @ 5:30 pm on a Sunday- actually, not out, but the roll was on the counter top instead of in the dispenser... Same as at 50% of the concession stands in the park...

a little pricey, but I needed rooms for my 4 man team at 1245am on a day in in October, and Homewood saved the day where the adjacent Comfort Inn screwed us. The rooms were brand new, extremely nice, and comfortable (as the name implies). The rooms were over our budget, but in that situation, we had no choice. I would have liked to spend more than 6 hours in this hotel.

Knew we weren't going to be staying in a modern motel when we booked. Overall, the stay wasn't bad- only needed a place to sleep during an activity-packed weekend. Biggest problems were; 1) room rate promised 40 days prior, wasn't honored, 2) paper thin (and low quantity of) bath towels, 3) electrical outlets near bed were too physically worn out to plug anything into, and 4) no alarm clock. But, issue #1 sealed the deal for us-we won't be returning.

spent just a short night there 8/31/14 prior to catching first flight out on 9/1. This hotel is what you want it to be: close to airport, making easy rental car return. Efficient at check in and check out, ample parking with all spots nearby the building. clean, comfortable, well lit. It's a Holiday Inn Express! Beds could use updating, though
