    NEBRASKA
    On July 18, The Omaha City Council repealed an ordinance that outlaws
    concealed firearms in the city of Omaha. The 5-2 vote brings Omaha in
    line with the state's Right-to-Carry law, that was passed earlier this
    year. Mayor Mike Fahey (D) plans to veto the measure, but with five of
    the seven council members favoring the repeal, there are enough votes
    for a veto override. Congratulations to all NRA members who took the
    time to contact their City Council members and encourage them to support
    the personal protection rights of the citizens of Omaha!

    Lincoln Public Hearing: There will be a public hearing on Monday, July
    31, at 5:30 p.m., concerning Mayor Coleen Seng's (D) proposal to ban
    concealed handguns within the city limits. At this point Mayor Seng has
    three council members who support her ban, three who are undecided, and
    one who wants to delay action for a year. It is crucial that all NRA
    members attend this hearing and voice their opposition to this proposed
    ordinance. The meeting will be held Monday, July 31, at the County-City
    Building on 555 S. 10th Street, Lincoln, 68508, at 5:30 p.m. If you are
    unable to attend, please contact the city council members and urge them
    not to support Mayor Seng's proposal. You can contact the council
    members at http://www.ci.lincoln.ne.us/city/council/lista.htm.

    NEW YORK
    On July 15, after more than five years of hearings, debates, and
    studies, the Suffolk County Trap & Skeet Range has finally reopened!
    Please show your support by visiting the range located at 165 Gerard
    Road in Yaphank, New York 11980, (631) 924-5600. The hours of operation
    are 9 A.M. to 5 P.M., Wednesday through Sunday.

    Unfortunately, Legislator Kate Browning is not giving up her fight on
    her resolution to close down the Suffolk County Trap & Skeet range
    permanently, and only large numbers of people can and will influence the
    members of this committee, of which Ms. Browning is a member. We can,
    and we must, persuade the committee and/or the County legislature to do
    the right thing and keep the Suffolk County Trap & Skeet Range open.

    At the last Parks & Recreation Committee meeting held on June 21, the
    committee decided to table IR-1738-2006, and bring it back up for
    discussion at the next Parks & Recreation Committee meeting. The next
    meeting is scheduled for August 2, at 11:00 a.m., at the Suffolk County
    Legislative Building, Veterans Memorial Highway, Hauppauge, NY 11788,
    (631) 853-4000. Please call your Legislator and plan to attend this
    meeting and urge the Committee members to oppose IR-1738-2006. The
    Suffolk County Legislature can be reached at (631) 853-4074 or at
    www.co.suffolk.ny.us/legis/.

    Also, The Sportsmen's Association for Firearms Education Inc. (S.A.F.E.)
    will be hosting its "2006 Right-to-Carry Conference & Second Amendment
    Rally" on Sunday, October 1, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (doors open at
    12:00 noon). The event will be held at the Sheraton, Long Island, 110
    Vanderbilt Motor Parkway, Smithtown, NY, (631) 231-1100, (on Motor
    Parkway on North side of LIE between exits 53 & 55). In attendance at
    the event will be: Wayne R. LaPierre, NRA Executive Vice President; Bob
    Barr, Former Member, U.S. House of Representatives and NRA Board Member;
    Jim Fotis, Executive Director, Law Enforcement Alliance of America; John
    Faso, Republican Candidate for New York State Governor; John Spencer,
    Republican/Conservative Candidate for U.S. Senator from New York; and
    John L. Cushman, S.A.F.E. President and Founder, and NRA Board Member.

    If you believe you have the right to own and use firearms lawfully, then
    you need to attend this conference. You will get the latest information
    on the Right-to-Carry nationwide and locally. You will meet and network
    with fellow sportsmen and women concerning your civil rights and those
    of your children and grand children. This Conference will raise issues
    of concern and give suggested courses of action with local and national
    leaders of Second Amendment organizations and legislators from all
    levels of government. You will also have a chance to win valuable
    prizes in drawings limited to attendees only. Admission and parking is
    free and the event is open to your family and friends.

    City of White Plains Common Council Meeting Reminder: Mayor Joseph
    Delfino (R) and the Common Council of the City of White Plains have
    proposed an anti-gun local law, Introductory Local Law No. 3, which
    effects businesses and owners of air pistols and air rifles, also known
    as BB or pellet guns. A public hearing has been scheduled for August 7,
    2006. Introductory Local Law No. 3 would require any person who sells,
    possesses, or transports any air pistol or air rifle to obtain a license
    and pay an annual fee in the City of White Plains. Any violation of
    this local law will be a misdemeanor and may require payment of a fine
    or even the serving of jail time!

    In order to stop this proposed anti-gun legislation, attendance at this
    public hearing is needed! The public hearing is August 7, 2006, at 7:30
    p.m., to be held at the Council Chambers, on 255 Main Street. Please
    contact Mayor Delfino and the Common Council members immediately at
    (914) 422-1411 and ask them to oppose Introductory Local Law No. 3. To
    find contact information on your Common Council member, please visit
