Pennsylvania: Help The Holmesburg Fish and Game Protective Association Have A Happy New Year!

Friday, December 14, 2007

For seventy-seven years, the Holmesburg Fish and Game Protective Association has served sportsmen and gun enthusiasts throughout Pennsylvania. However, several months ago, the City of Philadelphia sent notice to the Association that its long existing property lease would not be renewed.  If no action is taken, the last remaining shooting range in the City of Philadelphia will be forced to close its doors on January 1, 2008.

Please continue to contact Mayor John Street (D) and the members of the City Council to respectfully urge them not to close the door on our Second Amendment rights and to renew the Holmesburg Fish and Game Protective Association’s lease for 2008.  Mayor Street can be reached at (215) 686-2181.  Contact information for the City Council can be found below.
