Let Freedom Ring At County Fairs

Friday, August 6, 2004

If you`ve ever attended a Grassroots-Election Workshop (for details on upcoming Workshops in your area, please visit www.nraila.org/workshops/), you`ve heard ILA Grassroots staff relentlessly preach the need for us to reach out to the "natural resources of the pro-gun community." Effectively, what we are talking about are: gun shops, gun shows, gun/hunting clubs, and shooting ranges--the places where gun owners and Second Amendment supporters can be found.

While probably not considered a true "natural resource" in that vein, county fairs are nonetheless a terrific venue for you to attend to sign up NRA-ILA FrontLines™ volunteers, register pro-gun voters, encourage fellow Second Amendment supporters to contact their lawmakers in opposition to expansion/extension of the Clinton gun ban, and to find volunteers to assist with area campaigns. The county fair season in many states is in full swing, and we encourage you to attend a fair near you to promote our common agenda and activities.

NRA-ILA`s Grassroots Division can assist by providing you with voter registration information and applications, bumper stickers, buttons, and information on the Clinton gun ban.

Please go to the following sites for schedules and more information on county fairs that may be going on near you, and make every effort to attend and spread the word:






To request materials for distribution at these fairs, or, if you need assistance on how to proceed, please contact the NRA-ILA Grassroots Division at (800) 392-VOTE (8683) and ask to speak to your state`s Grassroots Coordinator.
