STATE REP RACE Republican Pina Prinzivalli Pledges To File Rep Micelis Constitutional

first_imgTEWKSBURY, MA — The below press release has been issued by State Rep. Candidate Pina Prinzivalli (R-Tewksbury):On Thursday, Pina Prinzivalli (R-Tewksbury), candidate for State Representative in the 19th Middlesex District, announced that when elected, she will continue to file Representative James Miceli’s “An Act Relative to Constitutional Rights” bill. This comes less than 24 hours after the Massachusetts Legislature passed gun confiscation legislation.“This will be the first bill I file,” said Prinzivalli who launched her campaign in October of 2017. “What we saw on the house floor Wednesday was the continued erosion of our constitutional rights. It doesn’t matter if you’re a Democrat or a Republican or an independent, rights are rights and they’re to be protected by those who take the oath of office when elected. Mr. Miceli prided himself on standing up for the second amendment rights of law abiding gun owners. That pride will not end with his passing. I’m pledging to continue filing his bill to make sure our rights are being protected.”The bill, H.1296 in the current House session, had also been filed by Representative Miceli during the previous House session. It states:No county, municipality, township or other community entity within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts may enact, pass or enforce any law, ordinance or regulation concerning the lawful ownership, use, possession, transfer, purchase, receipt or transportation of weapons, antique weapons, ammunition or ammunition components. The right to keep and bear arms is an individual civil right and shall be presumed to exist in all matters regarding the ownership, use, possession, transfer, purchase, receipt or transportation of weapons, antique weapons, ammunition or ammunition components unless expressly prohibited by the general laws of this Commonwealth. “As it stands right now, a town could try and ban gun ownership,” said Prinzivalli. “What this legislation would do is prohibit local ordinances or laws regulating firearms and weapons. The bill hasn’t made it out of committee in either session but I will work to make sure the voices of law abiding gun owners are heard and that their rights are protected, just as Mr. Miceli intended.”Prinzivalli is seeking the seat that was held by the late James Miceli who passed away on April 21. Prinzivalli announced her candidacy on October 18, 2017. In addition to pledging to protect constitutional rights and freedoms, Prinzivalli has signed the Taxpayers Protection Pledge and has collected signatures to lower the sales tax and establish an annual tax free weekend. She is endorsed by Representatives Geoff Diehl and Shaunna O’Connell.Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook. Follow Wilmington Apple on Twitter. Follow Wilmington Apple on Instagram.

Airbus Iran deal IranAir takes delivery of its first Airbus airliner as

first_imgIran took delivery of its first western-built Airbus airliner on Wednesday, post the lifting of sanctions. The Airbus A321 landed in capital city Tehran and was received by Iranian Transport Minister Abbas Akhoundi. The brand new fleet of IranAir will eventually comprise 100 Airbus air planes and 80 planes from the Boeing brand.Also read: Iran finalises deal to buy 100 aircraft from Airbus for $10 billionThe first IranAir plane took off from Toulouse (in France) and a passenger on-board included Airbus’ chief Fabrice Bregier, BBC reported. The first landing in Tehran is symbolic of Iran’s emergence from decades of isolation (during sanctions).According to Iran’s state TV, Thursday’s landing was a historic moment for the Middle East nation, which also signals that the era of sanctions has ended for the country. “This is a prelude to the delivery of other aircraft and the renovation of Iran’s ageing air fleet,” BBC cited the local TV report as saying.According to experts, the IranAir fleet is among the oldest fleet in the world and in order to keep flying (in the sanctions era), the airline had relied on smuggling aircraft parts into the country. It was reported last month that the state-run carrier of the Iranian republic, has agreed to buy 100 planes from Airbus in a deal valued at about $10 billion. The first delivery of seven to eight aircraft would be completed by 2017. The deal comprises purchase of both narrow-body and wide-body aircraft and will be formally sealed shortly.Iran’s 14 airlines, including state-owned IranAir, have a combined capacity to fly 22 million passengers every year, according to aviation research body Centre for Aviation. The country’s other carriers include ATA Airlines, Atrak Air, Iran Aseman Airlines, Mahan Air, Meraj Airlines, Qeshm Airlines, Taban Air and Zagros Airlines.last_img read more
