This past Thursday, the U.S. Department of Justice announced the arrest of now-former Deputy Samir Ahmad of the Philadelphia Sheriff’s Office on weapons trafficking charges. Ahmad’s scheme involved selling confiscated handguns and methamphetamine; what he didn’t know was that his most recent buyer was an FBI informant. While he was specifically arrested for illegally selling two handguns that had previously been used in a deadly shooting outside a high school last month, Ahmad had been under investigation since April for dealing in contraband from his office’s evidence locker. Ironically, Ahmad’s late father founded an anti-violence activism group after his 15-year-old son was murdered in 1992.
Samir Ahmad’s case is a recent example of something we have seen repeatedly throughout the United States: an authority figure abusing his position to circumvent gun laws. Californians will remember a number of similar cases in their own state, highlighting the two-faced attitude some powerful individuals take toward the laws they create, enforce, or otherwise support.

How many times have you heard this is the most important election of your life? The Republic is at stake! Without victory all is lost! Seems like we’ve heard that a lot. This is the first election in my lifetime where a reasonable case can be made for that argument.
Whatever the reasons, we currently have a political party in power bent on destroying our way of life and replacing it with something unrecognizable to most Americans. From the weaponizing of government institutions to the erasing of the southern border to the divisive rhetoric and destruction of the fossil fuel industry the results seem intentional.
The above leans less towards opinion and more towards fact based on the words of those leaders and the actions they’ve taken over the past two years. At the top of their list for destruction are the rights protected by the Second Amendment which if destroyed render the rest of the Constitution meaningless. Whatever your politics, your choice in November is clear.
Recently the US Supreme Court (SCOTUS) ruled in NYSRPA vs Bruen that the Second Amendment protects the right of citizens to carry concealed weapons in public for self-defense. The reaction from the handful of oppressive states was predictable.

Do you find yourself watching the local news or reading the newspaper, saying “Someone should do something!”?
The #NotMeIE program is a mentor/mentee referral service run by women for women to help them:
Obtain firearms training
Get assistance in choosing and purchasing a firearm
Obtain a CCW
How does the program work?
A potential client can fill out the application for service on our website. Once received, the project manager reviews the application and assigns the client to an Ambassador. An Ambassador then contacts the client to begin the process of walking them through whatever their firearm needs are. After the client has been successfully helped, their case is closed, and the Ambassador is given a new client to work with. Some of our Ambassadors are also NRA certified trainers. They are very knowledgeable in all aspects of firearms training and purchasing. IEGO also offers an online CCW seminar once a month. Check the IEGO website for upcoming dates. If you are an experienced gun owner and are interested in becoming an Ambassador for the #NotMeIE program please reach out to Karla at [email protected]
