This week’s updates prove that 2nd Amendment rights remain at the forefront of legal battles nationwide. Lucky for US, responsible armed citizens around the country help to strengthen our collective reserve!! Take a look at whats going on nationwide with firearm laws and statutes….
Nationwide – Shooting sports continue to gain momentum….The U.S. Department of the Interior released their annual strategic plan this week. The newly released plan strongly reinforces the department’s mission of expanding access to outdoor recreation opportunities for hunting, recreational shooting, fishing and other activities on federal lands and waters. The NSSF reports that annually these activities contribute $156 billion in economic activity across the United States. Statistics show that more than 101 million Americans pursue wildlife‐related recreation, which supports 480,000 jobs. With these staggering statistics, it’s no wonder that the shooting sports hold such a place in the hearts of responsible gun owners nationwide!!!
Nationwide – Reactions to tragedy…..Two more anti-gun bills were filed this week by senators in reaction to the tragedy in Las Vegas. U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin (from Illinois) introduced an auspiciously-titled bill: Safety Enhancements for Communities Using Reasonable and Effective Firearm Storage (SECURE) Act. The bill, if ratified, would place one-size-fits-all storage requirements on all firearms retailers. U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy, (from Connecticut) introduced the Background Checks Expansion Act. The act, if ratified, will include background checks for the sale or transfer of all firearms including private sellers. PSA will keep it’s eye on these proposals as well as others and keep you guys informed!
*** If you are unfamiliar with firearms and/or their accessories, and want to learn more, PSA strongly suggests that you find, enroll, and attend a comprehensive and reputable firearms safety course. Firearms safety is all of OUR responsibility.
We want to thank you for taking out the time to stop by our lane at the shooting range!! We hope that you enjoyed your stay and hope that you stop back by early and often to catch up on all PSA updates! We truly hope that we were able to hit the target, and if you ever have any questions please don’t hesitate to shoot them our way!! We look forward to shooting the breeze with you soon again!!
And as always….remember to watch your six and stay low!!!
