Petition to Ralph S. Northam, James W. "Will" Morefield, A. Benton "Ben" Chafin
Stop Gov. Northam's new gun-control proposal
Governor Northam is proposing more gun-control laws on Virginia citizens. These proposals include universal background checks, banning assault weapons and any gun capable of hold over 10 rounds, allowing only one handgun to be purchased in a 30 day period, gives you 24 hours to report a stolen or lost gun, take your guns if subjected to a protective order, felony charges for not locking away your guns if children are in household, allowing each town to strengthen gun laws ever more and taking away your children's right to hunt alone. First is a new red flag law .This lets police take away a person's guns without due process. The police can have a closed hearing without the gun owner being present to decide if they are going to take his gun rights. This could cost you thousands of dollars to get your rights back. All it would take is making your neighbor mad and them making a bogus call or taking a protective order on you. Your rights could be gone in a blink of your eye Under the new proposed universal background check it will make it illegal to make private gun sells. Say you sell a gun to a friend and years down the road that weapon is used in a crime. You will be held responsible or an accessory to the crime if it is still in your name, under these new proposals. If you had mental health issues for a short while and a friend took control of your firearms without going through a background check, then of you would both be guilty of a felony. He is wanting to ban and round up any and all assault weapons. you ask what is classifies a gun as that? According to what I have read it will be any gun capable of holding over 10 rounds. What that will cover exactly I don't know, it hasn't been clarified. Under these new proposal you will only be allowed to purchase one hand gun in a 30 day period. So say goodbye to those matching gun sets. We have had this law before, it was dropped in 2012. Its a proven fact it changed nothing. The only thing this is gonna hurt is gun shops owners. Say you have a gun stolen or lost you will have 24 hours to report it. I find it hard to always know if a gun has been stolen. A lot of times people have multiples put away in the closet, safe, lock boxes, etc. If its not reported you will be punished twice, first thing is your gun was stolen, second you could have charges on you for not reporting it. Right now its illegal to have a unsecured load gun around children under 14, the new proposal is 18. That leave your teens defenseless if left home alone. Not only that the way I see it, it might take away a teenager right to hunt. If he/she cant be in a home along with a gun, they may not be allow to be in the woods with it. Not only that it will become a felony if found guilty of having a unsecured loaded gun in the home. To beat it all each and every town and/or county in Virginia will be able to add even more to these laws. It gives them right to go as far as saying your only allowed X amount of guns or what type of guns. Not saying I've read or heard this but if they are allowed to strengthen these laws I'm sure they will be given the right to do as they please. Please join me in telling Gov. Northam we don't need new gun laws. At most all we need is current laws enforced. Help me convince him and others we do not have gun problems. We Have issues with mental health in this country and if current laws are enforced and help given to the mentally ill it would help us more than anything. Some of my greatest memories has to do with firearms and the fun I had with not only with friends and family but the most with my children. They have been shooting since they were able to hold one up at the age of three. We have to instill these values in our children. The government should not have the right to tell us what guns we can own or how many rounds they can shoot. I consider myself as a Democrat but more than that a constitutionalist. I believe in what my forefathers wrote, we weren't given the 2nd amendment for home protection or hunting rights. It was given to us so we can defend ourselves from a tyrant government. So to me our rights have already been infringed on but that's not what this is about today. Its about what is right and the rights that WE THE PEOPLE have. I'm not asking for much Mr. Governor, I'm just asking you to leave our guns alone.
Petition to Apple
Ask Apple to reconsider the ban on ALL apps related to vaporization
Apple recently removed all vaporization-related apps from the app store. We respectfully ask Apple to reconsider its decision which groups all the good guys with all the very bad apples. Not all vapes are created equal. Our mission at Ghost Vapes is to Respect The Flower. Our medical-grade devices allow adults to consume legal safe whole flower cannabis. No additives. ONLY natural flower and extract. We at Ghost Vapes have specifically stayed away from the oil-filled cartridge-based vaping products because we know convenience is not nearly important as knowing exactly what you're consuming. The ONLY thing we have in common with the recent news about vaping is the word itself. Ghost Vapes and many other high-end dry-herb vaporizers cannot be used with oil-cartridges. Adult consumers across 34 legal states and around the world rely on our app to customize their device, enhance their experience, and also lock it safely out of children's hands. Apple: We ask you to reconsider your decision, and instead of removing the solution to a public health crisis from your app store, you support those who Respect The Flower and provide a natural alternative. Respectfully,

No More White House!
It's time we gave the white house a new name! It's time to stop calling it *The White House* This is supposed to be a country of freedom and diversity! Built by immigrants of every culture and denomination! I think America will feel a little or even a lot less Racist if we change that title. I'm not going to go into how the name came about, anyone can Google it. The Presidential Mansion should not have a color! The people's house, or Presidential Palace, anything but *white house* I think it will bring about change, and hope for unity! There will be some who may not agree I'm sure, but we know who they are, but if they truly love this country, they would get on board and help make suggestions on what we can use as an attractive, unifying, inclusive title that represents all of America! All her good, all her honor. America may have a dark and sordid history but we can change that! And we must also remember the sacrifices of the Native Americans and their sacred beliefs and lives they gave in their fight to hold on to what was rightfully theirs and the continued struggle to save what is left. I honestly believe that we can change the heart of America if we make the effort to change the name of *The White House* !
Petition to Mayor DeBlasio
Have a day off public schools for Orthodox religious holiday “Little Christmas”,January 7.
Every year on January 7, several Orthodox public school students do not have the luxury of having a day off to celebrate their Christmas, also known as “Little Christmas”, with their friends and families. Even if they are given an excused absence, they still have to deal with making up any class work, homework, and any other types of exams given on that day. Additionally if there is school, students may not be able to celebrate after going home. This is due to the fact that several students may have homework to complete or tests being administered the next day to study for, leaving no time to celebrate the holiday with their families. This is unfair to families who just want to celebrate this special time of the year, but can't due to the academics of the students. This can all be avoided if public schools gave the day off, so students can focus on their families, friends, and their holiday. Furthermore, they can set aside a certain time to finish any homework or studying without any stress or concern for their academics. Several other religions get days off for their own holidays in which their celebration is respected and honored. “Little Christmas” should be respected just as much. Orthodox religion doesn’t have any other days off for any holiday. So, the request for January 7 to be taken off shouldn’t seem excessive but instead just and right.

Petition to U.S. Senate
Extend Thanksgiving Break
Festive periods are the absolute best every year no doubt. But usually they are a bit sort and not immense. Thanksgiving Break should be extended to a 2 week break period. This will be necessary due to the fact that a majority of students and workers are constantly overworked in either classrooms or at their daily jobs, and for the most part we all need an extensive time to rest and recuperate. For example I go to school 5 times a week for 12 hours (8 hours of school + 4 hours of soccer practice) so in total I am occupied at school for approximately 60 hours a week. And with that being said I barely have time to conversate or hang amongst my family on a consistent basis, I am full on homework and more. So with this break we are imposing it will bring upon a better/ longer time with your family and especially more time for yourself and relaxation. Breaks are very key to your body and your brain. On [Edutopia.org]states that breaks reduces stress and increases productivity, as well as boosts the function of the brain, helps develop social skills. About eight in 10 Americans say they frequently (44%) or sometimes (35%) encounter stress in their daily lives. Just 17% say they rarely feel stressed, while 4% say they never do. This is from [news.gallup.com], stress is very common among loads of people. So with the 2 week Thanksgiving Break it can help folks relax and ease their mindsets from any on going stress. The cite [incorporatemassage.com] says that the benefits of breaks helps, refocus on your goals, and a creativity boost. Actions are doing are that the Student Government Association Senate passed on Jan. 17 supporting a two day extension to Thanksgiving Break. The problem with this is that it is proposing that Monday and Tuesday are off which affects the students/ workers sleep schedule. As well as it’ll cause a low attendance rate the following day when the students come back on Wednesday. With students being absent also means they miss out on critical learning and now they are behind on the topic. The 2 week break will mean students/workers will come back on Monday the beginning of the week ready to go with a fresh mentality and somewhat stress free

Petition to The Detroit Lions Organization
NEEDED: Martha Ford/Ford Family to sell the Detroit Lions
Enough is enough. As Lion's fans, we have been through many different management regimes, with the same result... Lack luster product. This petition has been started in an attempt to have the Lions franchise sold. The ownership group is the only common denominator of many failed seasons of Detroit Lions Football. We have a quarterback who started 139 straight games, played through injuries showing a commitment to his team, and success. The best running back in NFL history, Barry Sanders, because he lost his love for the game by playing for a franchise that was not committed to putting a winning product on the field. Most recently, one of the best wide receivers to play the game, Calvin Johnson, retired early, because the team was not committed to winning, not personnel health. The madness needs to stop. Sign this petition in an attempt to put pressure on Martha Ford/Ford family to sell The Detroit Lions franchise.
