Gun Law Update - SPECIAL - Don't miss National Training Week, July 4 - 11, 2009

June 7, 2009

I'm real short on time, have a plane to catch in a few hours, but I want to get the word out.

The week of July 4th is being established as National Training Week, when Americans celebrate their freedom with firearms at the nation's shooting ranges. "Good Americans Are Good Marksmen." Perfect time to bring a newcomer to the range for an experience, and to exercise your freedom. Participating ranges offer free handgun rentals, special classes, go out and ask your local range to participate if they're not. (They'll probably say, "Never heard of it," that's OK, it's all described here, print it and give it to them):

Arizona Congressman John Shadegg has endorsed the idea, along with Gun Owners of America, The Second Amendment Foundation, many others, all posted at that link. Sorry I don't have more time. You want to do something to defend your rights? Visit your range and motivate them.

If you can't see the Congressman's letter below, use this link:

Do you have a reference for an attorney knowledgeable in gun sales within the state of california. I'm in Northern California and need some advice. Would like to buy an hour of time from an expert.

"I have to catch plane...."
I have checked in a gun on my flights for years. Until Obama became President, the matter was handled by the ticket counter. Now the gun must be taken (with me) to the government representative of the Homeland Security Dept. In one location the TSA guy checked every item in my bag.
I have problem with this Obama-related government involvement.
