Gov. Wolf: First Law to Take Guns from Abusers Goes into Effect

first_imgGov. Wolf: First Law to Take Guns from Abusers Goes into Effect SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Press Release,  Public Safety Harrisburg, PA – Act 79, signed into law by Governor Tom Wolf in October 2018, was the first law in Pennsylvania to truly take guns away from the dangerous abusers who use them to kill, terrorize and control. The law goes into effect tomorrow.“With Act 79, victims of domestic abuse will know that Pennsylvania is working to protect them from their abusers,” Gov. Wolf said. “The incidents of domestic violence where guns are involved in our commonwealth prove that this commonsense law is an important step to protect victims of domestic abuse, save lives, and hold abusers accountable for their actions. I thank the many advocates and our General Assembly for passage of House Bill 2060, now Act 79.”Gov. Wolf first called for the General Assembly to pass a package of domestic violence bills in October 2017, including Act 79’s domestic violence gun safety protections. One year later, he signed Act 79, the first law in 14 years to address gun violence.Act 79 includes additional safeguards to help protect victims of domestic violence, including:• New requirements around prohibiting abusers who have been issued a final protection from abuse orders issued after a contested hearing or conviction for misdemeanor crimes of domestic violence from possessing firearms and requires them to turn in their guns to law enforcement agencies within 24 hours while the order is in effect;• Eliminates the concern about simply relinquishing a firearm to a family member or friend;• Allows for the time that an individual is incarcerated not to be counted for the 90 days of a temporary PFA.The Pennsylvania State Police has taken the necessary steps to communicate the changes implemented by Act 79 to its members and is working with external stakeholders, including the Pennsylvania Sheriff’s Association, the Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association, and the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence to prepare for the implementation of Act 79. State Police is also updating the Protection from Abuse Database (PFAD) system so that all law enforcement agencies can access the new forms that are required by the statute.“Act 79 taking effect is a reminder that we need to do more to pass commonsense gun safety reforms, including universal background checks,” Gov. Wolf said. “We owe all Pennsylvanians a safe place to live and we need to continue working together to make that a reality.”center_img April 09, 2019last_img read more

Kamyszek sticks to strict daily routine to excel for Syracuse cross-country

first_imgReed Kamyszek is always taking some sort of course.First, there are the Syracuse courses. With his biochemistry major complete, the senior concentrates on his other major, ethics and his psychology minor.Then there are the medical school applications — the top ones, this side of the Mississippi River, Kamyszek needs to stay the course and finish.And lastly, 2–3 hours per day, six days a week, he spends on an actual course as a top runner on the Syracuse men’s cross-country team. The team is ranked sixth in the nation, which prepares for the Atlantic Coast Conference championships in three weeks. Time management and organization are keys to his success because, for him, running and school are the same.When it comes to his 4.0 GPA, his NCAA Elite 89 award and an eighth overall finish in Syracuse’s most recent meet, he approaches all of these with the same mind-set and a methodical game plan.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“In cross-country, there are four or five major races during your season,” he said. “In a class, there are four or five major exams.”He admitted that the spacing of these tests might differ between the two areas, but he stressed that consistency is the biggest part.“There’s a difference between simply going to lecture and paying attention,” he said. “And the same thing goes for practice. Are you mentally up for (either)?”Every day starts at 7:25 a.m. on the same street corner, where a group of cross-country teammates get an early run in. Then comes breakfast — mostly organic food he cooks himself — before lectures, workouts, dinner, homework and 8–9 hours of sleep to finish the day.And his attention to detail was fostered at a young age.“We had high expectations. We harked on the kids, ‘My name’s attached to you, don’t mess it up,’” Kamyszek’s father, Eric, said with a laugh about his and his wife Dawn’s parenting style.In school, he consistently received top marks in the classroom and impressed athletically. In sixth grade, during a mandatory mile run for gym class, Kamyszek flew to a 5:30 time.Kamyszek dropped hockey his freshman year at Kenowa Hills High School in Michigan and went under the tutelage of Greg Meyer — who won the Boston Marathon in 1983 and before this year, was the last American to do so. Meyer trained any and all high school kids in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area.Any skill level was welcome and it was free.Kamyszek soon began dominating his conference. By junior year, he won the Division II cross-country state championship in the fall and the 2-mile event in track in the spring. He was so successful running that he began to lose, on purpose — but only to his teammates.During the regular season, he would slow up toward the end of meets and allow his teammates to pass him across the finish line. He wanted to share the spotlight and give his teammates ink in the paper.He did this because Kamyszek is only competitive with himself, not his teammates or opponents.“I don’t like to lay out what I’m going to do beforehand,” Kamyszek said when asked if he trash talks. “Everyone’s there to learn, so why would you hinder someone’s ability to do that?”This comes from the Midwestern sensibility Syracuse coach Chris Fox can’t help but mention when discussing Kamyszek.“He only does things that make sense,” he said. “He’s very calculating.”On a team-wide scale, Kamyszek said, it doesn’t matter who’s the first or fifth man because everyone has to pass the person in front of them to help the team. Especially because points matter so much, particularly in championships, and that’s where the Orange will be in just three short weeks.Until then, Kamyszek will stay on course, repeating his routine, because he knows that’s the quickest way to success.“The last thing you want to do (is get overwhelmed),” Kamyszek said. “If that happens, your work suffers — and that’s the last thing you want to happen.” Comments Published on October 15, 2014 at 12:05 am Contact Sam: [email protected] | @Sam4TR Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

“We could not say goodbye to him, or comfort my mother”

first_imgFernando Sanz went through the microphones of “The Stringer” of Cadena SER to remember his father, Lorenzo Sanz, after dying this Saturday from the coronavirus.Farewell: “We have not been able to say goodbye to him, or comfort my mother. Seeing the recognition that he is being unanimous about the figure of my father takes a little better despite the fact that this pain is for life.”Lorenzo Sanz: “The last time we spoke was at Christmas. I travel a lot for my chores. My father’s passions were family and Real Madrid. He was proud of what he had around the table.” The President of the Seventh: “My father entered through Ramón Mendoza in 1985 and stayed until 2000. It was another era. Italian soccer was the most powerful. In Spanish soccer, he had no powerful contracts or many resources. He set up a team that won the League and the European Cup. I have not seen anything like the arrival in Madrid then. Then the Eighth came in a difficult time because there was no such income as there is now. “Things to say: “You always have things left. My father was a real computer. In his head he remembered everything. In the ICU they let him have a phone and we could send him messages.”Tribute: “I have spoken with Florentino. The contact has been daily. Right now the important thing is to end this virus and that when it is finished you can see what has gone wrong. All the players of his time have called me destroyed. They are all devastated and wanting something to be done to remember the figure of my father. “last_img read more
