West Virginia: FREE grassroots activism meeting in Mineral Wells- October 13!

NRA-ILA will be hosting a special FREE grassroots activism meeting in Mineral Wells on October 13th. We are excited to announce that Delegate Mike Azinger will be joining us! Come to the Comfort Suites of Parkersburg from 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m., for light refreshments and to learn more about how you can influence gun laws by contacting your legislators.

As you know, Governor Tomblin vetoed Senate Bill 347 earlier this year, which would have allowed West Virginia residents to carry a concealed firearm without a permit. Anti-gun extremists like former NY Mayor Michael Bloomberg were able to pressure Governor Tomblin into vetoing this bill. The key to success this upcoming legislative session will be an informed and active pro-gun community! 

It's never been more important to establish contact with our elected officials, and on October 13, we'll discuss how to build relationships with legislators so that we're prepared for the next legislative session. All those who participate will receive complimentary NRA items and light refreshments will be provided!
