NRA Club Connection web site http://clubs.nra.org/club-connection.aspx Great info there about club activities. There is a quarterly publication in .pdf format that is a great read. Thanks to WBBSC NRA director Tom Derzon for forwarding this web site to us.

To All Sportsman Clubs:

This is a plea that all too often falls on deaf ears, tuned out ears, etc. The number of clubs that are prone to think that someone else is responsible for funding the organizations that back our right to own and use firearms in the pursuit of our hunting, plinking, target shooting, concealed carry rights and so forth. Well, I know better! The anti-gun factions are well organized and fully funded. We as Second Amendment supporters must do our part personally and in conjunction with our clubs find the funds that are necessary to combat the anti-gun advocates who want to take away and destroy our rights as sportsmen and gun owners. Just one cogent thought about all of you and your sportsmanís clubs: If you canít own guns there will be no need for your clubs! Please rethink this scenario where someone else will fund our fight to preserve our Second Amendment Rights. It is not true, you and your clubs are the someone else. Dig deep and do your part to keep our shooting sports alive and well. One more thing, this is an on-going fight. Along with your support a one time, feel good donation doesnít do it. The anti-gun owners never stop, so we have to continue the fight with ongoing support and unfortunately, this continues to cost money. The bottom line is that you are doing it for you and your rights, no one else. Take action.

Sincerely, A Staunch Second Amendment Supporter

Supreme Court Declares That the Second Amendment
Guarantees an Individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms

Thursday, June 26, 2008
Fairfax, VA - Leaders of the National Rifle Association (NRA) praised the Supreme Court's historic ruling overturning Washington, D.C.'s ban on handguns and on self-defense in the home, in the case of District of Columbia v. Heller.

"This is a great moment in American history. It vindicates individual Americans all over this country who have always known that this is their freedom worth protecting," declared NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre. "Our founding fathers wrote and intended the Second Amendment to be an individual right. The Supreme Court has now acknowledged it. The Second Amendment as an individual right now becomes a real permanent part of American Constitutional law."

Last year, the District of Columbia appealed a Court of Appeals ruling affirming that the Second Amendment to the Constitution guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms, and that the District's bans on handguns, carrying firearms within the home and possession of functional firearms for self-defense violate that fundamental right.

"Anti-gun politicians can no longer deny that the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right," said NRA chief lobbyist Chris W. Cox. "All law-abiding Americans have a fundamental, God-given right to defend themselves in their homes. Washington, D.C. must now respect that right."

11-01-2007: NRA Launching Web Site Devoted To Hunters' Rights. On November 1, NRA is launching a new Web site devoted to hunters' rights. All factors that affect your freedom to hunt, and the future of the sport itself, will be addressed at www.nrahuntersrights.org. The site will not tell you how to hunt, where to put your tree stand or what the best guns and loads are for your favorite species. Many Web sites and magazines can already tell you all that. The site will alert you about threats to hunting and NRA's efforts to combat them -- our direct lobbying efforts at every level, our hunter recruitment and instruction programs and our funding of conservation and range improvement projects.  NRA Hunters Rights
