A member of Long Island Firearms had his handgun license suspended last week due to his 10 year old son talking about bb and water guns at school. The member John Mayer (aka ghostwriter) approached us with his story first hand. Within our community we setup a link to help offset his legal fees (in excess of $6500.00). Donations came pouring in within minutes to help a fellow member of the community.

On behalf of Long Island Firearms and its members we would like to present to John Mayer the sum of $3276.00 which has been collected to fight back against this misappropriation of authority
.
We will continue to keep the donation link up if anyone else is willing to help fight his battle in court.


The attorney chosen by John Mayer:

Murtha & Murtha, PLLC
26 Railroad Avenue
Babylon, NY 11702-2204
Phone: (631) 747-0356

Wow, It's very uplifting to see that we put together a very decent chunk of change to help fight this madness, but there's still a long way to go.. I'm sure the costs will be much much higher than this.
I donated what I could and I only hope to see a future thread about his victory in court..

I'm glad to know how much has been donated SO FAR! Now we know how much further we need to go!
I will be making another donation when I get paid next.
Everyone, please dig as deep as you can. We can beat this tyranny together.

As I said previously. It is extremely important to all of us. We have to turn this usurpation of power into an example.
We need to make this so big and loud, that next time similar situation comes up there be no volunteers to knock on our doors, to interrogate our children, to treat us like criminals. The government in this country does not have ANYTHING that we don't give it. It exists on our money. It serves at our pleasure. The government in this country is FOR THE PEOPLE and BY THE PEOPLE. How did we get to the point where the salt of Earth guys like John get harassed at will?! The school principal who is making lofty living for privilege (YES, privilege!) to be with our kinds, feels very comfortable to "outsource" her job to the police. We don't know what kind of record they now have on John's 10-year old. We don't know what kind of record they have on John. "HAVE YOU EVER YOUR HANDGUN LICENSE SUSPENDED OR REVOKED". For the rest of his life, John will have to pause at that question. They feel fine to muscle law-abiding citizen, while the drug dealers and robbers run freely. Look at crime stats March 1st - April 1st. They don't have enough precious resources to issue my license for a year, but they have enough to make sure that John has his license revoked. WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THEY KNOW - WE ARE PAYING ATTENTION AND IT IS A BIG DEAL.
Talk to people at work about this, talk to your neighbors at home and on the train. Explain. Be patient. Explain again. Give analogies. Don't get tired.

Hey John.
We got your 6. Take care and fight the fight. This fight we feel is yours but by proxy is ours as well. I(we) will continue to donate and fight the fight behind the scenes for you and your family.

Good luck brother

Unfortunately, I have been very busy the past few days with business meetings, so it has been difficult for me to get on here for any length of time to read up on how things are going with the donations for Mr. Mayer. Having just read the amount collected thus far from the membership, I actually got choked up about it. I did not think we would do so well. . . . And I am proud to see this outpouring of help for Mr. Mayer and his family here. Bravo to you all! I am proud to be one of the early members of this forum who are still around here as this forum continues to grow. This show of solidarity for one of our members is unbelievable. I'd like to say "Thank You" to all of you good people for a job well done and to those who continue to help for the good of all of us, especially for those of you with children in our schools. Let us get a common sense bill passed for our state that stops this sort of invasion against good citizens and their families. We must persevere and make this happen for the good of all!

Sincere Regards to All,

Eric R.
