APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Taking The Federal Battle To The States!

Friday, February 11, 2005

Countless times in the Grassroots Alert, you`ve heard us talking about some of our federal legislative priorities for 2005, including: ending reckless lawsuits against the firearm industry, repealing the D.C. gun ban, lifting restrictions on law-abiding gun owners, and more. And of course, while we work to advance our proactive legislative agenda, we must be eternally vigilant in working to defeat gun and ammo bans, bans on gun shows, and everything else the anti-gunners may throw at us.

Since our strength lies in our grassroots power--in you!--the NRA-ILA Grassroots Division will be hosting FREE Grassroots-Legislative Workshops in states around the country to train and empower our members and supporters to ensure their voices are heard in the legislative process. These Workshops will help ensure our electoral success last year are transformed into legislative victories this year!

At these Workshops, attendees will hear from NRA-ILA staff and NRA-ILA Election Volunteer Coordinators (EVCs) on effective means to sustain, increase, and motivate our base to take action. All Workshops and related materials, including food and beverages, are free!

Here is the list of upcoming, scheduled Workshops:

Sat., March 12: Bangor, ME: 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.; Bloomington, MN: 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.; Bismarck, ND: 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.

Tues., March 15: Jacksonville, FL: 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

Sat., March 19: Hollywood Beach (Miami), FL: 9:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m.; Morgantown, WV: 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.

If you are unable to attend for any reason, please forward this invitation to your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners in the area and encourage them to attend!

For those of you in areas where a Workshop isn`t currently scheduled, please be sure to continue to contact your U.S. Senators and your U.S. Representative and ask them to cosponsor and support the "Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act" and put a halt to these reckless lawsuits once and for all.

This function will allow you to easily send an e-mail or letter to your U.S. Representative and U.S. Senators. Please forward this link to your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners.
