APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Attention Texas Members! Please Attend Events!

Friday, October 28, 2005

Lubbock-area NRA members are encouraged to attend pro-gun Representative Carl Isett’s (R-84) town hall meeting this Saturday, October 29. The free "Coffee with Carl" event will take place from 9:00-11:00 a.m., at the Ramada Inn in Lubbock, located at 6624 I-27 (the corner of I-27 and South Loop 289).

During the 2005 session of the Texas Legislature, Representative Isett sponsored and passed legislation reducing Concealed Handgun License (CHL) renewal fees for senior citizens. He has also been a leader in the movement to legalize the carrying of a handgun for protection in your vehicle without a CHL, which the Legislature took an important step toward with passage of HB 823 this session. Please make plans to attend and thank Representative Isett for his support and his work to protect our Second Amendment rights in the Texas Legislature.

Also, on Saturday, November 5, "Students for the Second Amendment" and the "Collegiate Firearms Instructor Program" will host their third NRA Shooting Sports Camp, called "The Alamo City NRA Youth Sportsfest." The event will take place at the National Shooting Complex, in San Antonio, Tex. from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. This event has been designated an "NRA Day" event. For additional event information, please visit: www.sf2a.org/NRACamp2005.htm. "Students for the Second Amendment" is in need of individuals and groups who are interested in participating in this event as volunteers. Volunteers are needed on the various shooting ranges and fields.

Additionally, a few dozen range officers are needed to assist the young shooters on the range. Official NRA certification is not necessary to participate. If you would rather help out in a different manner, volunteers are need to assist with cooking hot dogs and hamburgers for the attendees, helping at the NRA recruiting/information booth, as well as set-up the day before the event. Please come out and support the future of youth shooting and our future defenders of our most cherished rights. To volunteer your time or for more information, please contact Damaso Torres, Executive Director, "Students for the Second Amendment" and the "Collegiate Firearms Instructor Program," at (210) 674-5559, or via e-mail at http://dtorres@sf2a.org/.
