We Like Shooting Activism Alert

Thanks for the heads up from Collin P.


If you could spread the word we need your help fighting the good fight. Here are the bills if you are interested.

They go after conceal carry making the towns may issue instead of shall issue but basically forcing the applicant to go through the AG’s office( may issue)

They put together a strict assault weapons ban that limits mags to 10 rds, banning all mags over 10 rds, one cosmetic feature

Changes our constitution from a no registry state to making a registry( like ct ny nj and ca).

There are other things added as well but those are the biggest ones. We beat back the gun control activists last year. This year they are coming at us even harder with a ferocity that we haven’t seen in the past.
